Happy Birthday to Archie for Sunday 3rd May!

Good Morning Everyone! Mrs Lewis here again. Are you are all well and ready for today's activities? 
 
The Learning Project this week has been all about Animals.  I hope you have enjoyed doing some of the activities throughout the week. I have learned a lot this week, so I'm sure you will have too! I've found out more about box jellyfish, tigers, and rhino in particular.  

Here are your tasks for today: 


Maths
:
My Maths - Please login and complete your homework for today. It is all about position and direction, just like we were learning about before Easter! Remember to try the lesson before doing the homework if you find it tricky. 

Reading:
Please spend time today enjoying your own reading book, or reading to an adult.

Well done to lots of you Year two children for making such a great start on your AR points targets! Especially well done to Sam C Jessica and Tora who are already at target and also to Oli, Nicolas, and Archie who are also well on the way. Remember we would expect you to be quizzing several times a week. 

Then read common exception words from your word list and time how long it takes for you to read
them all. Mrs Micklefield said you have done this on Wednesday - can you beat the score you got then?

 Singing and Moving


As it is Friday lets have some time to relax and sing! We are going to do this by
learning another really lovely song today.

Please go to this website: https://www.singup.org/singupathome and choose the Song of the Week.  The song is quite different from last week, it is called wiggle jiggle and is sure to get you moving!

Please watch the video and join in with the singing! If you would like to record a little video of you singing and send it to me at 
class2@gfschools.co.uk I would love to see you perform! (Mums and Dads - there are lots of other lovely ideas to do after watching the video on this website.)
            
Religious Education:

As a school, we have been thinking about Sikhism and we hoped that we would be able to visit a Gurdwara - a Sikh holy building used for worship and community. As we may not be able to do this as soon as we would like, I want you to do some research to find out about a Gurdwara. I have put some safe links to some information below. 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zkr87ty

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zd4wmp3


When you have finished researching, please record what you have found out. This might be a picture, some writing, or even a video explanation! 

Remember to send any work you are proud of to : Class2@gfschools.co.uk    We can also send messages to each other using Purple Mash. This might be a message about a Purple Mash activity that you've done, or an email message in Purple Mash.  
 

Have a lovely day. Make sure that throughout today you are helping out at home and remembering to say please and thank you! (Maybe you could see how many hugs you can give out today. I am going to try and give out at least 10 to Jack, Sophie and Mr Lewis!) 

Take care, missing you all lots and lots. Love Mrs Lewis 



The Learning Project – to be done throughout the week: Animals
 
The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more
about key animals they are interested in. Learning may focus on exploring the
physical aspects of an animal, their habitat, categorising animals etc.
Remember that you don't have to do all these tasks.  Choose something that interests you and that you will enjoy doing!


Find out about:
What are mammals?
What are amphibians?
What are birds?
What are fish?
What are reptiles?
What are minibeasts?
https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv
 
Create a mask: Using different materials around the house, create a mask of their favourite
animal. Think about the colours and shape. Can they add different textures to their mask?
 

 

Where does your animal live? Play this sorting activity to develop their understanding of where
different animals live.

Animal grouping: 
These Sorting Cards would be useful for the task https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-t-19730-animal-groups-sorting-cards-photos
Get your child to group animals into two columns. Identifying animals that can
fly and cannot fly. What do animals eat? Scientists group animals into three different groups
according to what animals eat. These groups are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. Carnivores
eat other animals, herbivores eat plant material including fruit, leaves, vegetables, omnivores eat a
mixture of meat and plant material. (Animals that eat other animals are called carnivores. Animals that eat plants
are called herbivores. Animals that eat both plants and other animals are called omnivores)
 
Needs of an animal. Can all animals be kept as a pet? Think about a particular animal and find out
if that animal could be a pet. Draw pictures of different animals. Sort the
animals into two groups; suitable for a pet and not suitable for a pet.
Explain why animals were sorted in a particular way.
- Design a leaflet explaining to
potential pet owners what each animal will need. – What are the responsibilities involved with looking after an animal?
How often do they need to find their pet? Who helps to clean? What does the pet eat? 
Can you create your own mini animal or object, then stick it to a peg cut in half?   


 
 
Nocturnal animals - What do they think this word means?
Watch  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zsshfg8 and discuss the animals they
saw. Have they seen these animals? How could they describe them?
Play https://ictgames.com/mobilePage/nocturnal/index.html. Nocturnal animals are more active at night than during the day. These animals sleep during the day, often in a burrow or
den. They have special adaptations that help them survive in the dark. Over millions of years, these
animals have developed traits that help them survive in the darkness. Nocturnal animals may have
larger ears to hear better, bigger eyes to see better, and body parts that glow in the night. Create
your own big-eyed nocturnal animal art. See https://www.greenkidcrafts.com/6-nocturnal-animal-crafts/
