Good Morning Everyone,

 
I hope you are all well and ready for today's activities. 

This week's 
Under the Sea project is now in full swing!  Some of you have built amazing reading dens with an 'Under the sea' theme and you have been creating fantastic models of sea creatures.  I'm glad that you are enjoying the project. I have really enjoyed seeing pictures of all the wonderful work that you've been doing. Thankyou for all your hard work!

. Maths:                                                                                                              

KIRFs test today.  Ask an adult to test you on the target that you have been working on. See if you need a little more practise or maybe you will be ready to move onto a new target.

Sea Creature Survey and Charts
Can you do a survey to ask your family about the sea creatures they like best.  Select 5 sea creatures that they can choose from. Ask them to score 5 for their favourite down to 1 for their least favourite.
Gather your results about the scores for each creature.  Then, create a tally chart or a pictogram to represent you results. (You could challenge yourself to do both!)  Which sea creature was the most popular? Which was the least popular?

Here is an reminder of what a tally chart and a pictogram look like. 
                                                                     
 
 

                                                                                                                                  
Reading: 
 Try to read a variety of books at home each day.  Aim to spend at least twenty minutes reading. This can be reading a 
 book aloud or sharing a book with an adult. It might be a book from your bookshelf, a book from school or an online text.  
Year 2 - Remember that you can do an Accelarated Reading quiz when you have finished your book: https://ukhosted79.renlearn.co.uk/6706937

Read along with ‘ There’s a Hole in the Bottom of the Sea ’ https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/A-hole-in-the-bottom-of-the-sea/

Learn to sing the song with Charlotte Law, then enjoy singing along to the performance track.

Be kind and help others
Don’t forget to try to do something to help someone else each day! There are lots of things that you could do to be helpful.  I've had messages that some of you have been helping in the kitchen, helping with gardening and washing the car. Well done!

Work hard, be kind and have a fun day. I will be back with you tomorrow!
Missing you all,
Love from Mrs Micklefield

Parents, 
Please find details below for this week's Learning Project.
 


The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about life in and around the sea. Learning may focus on the strange and wonderful creatures and plants that occupy our oceans, their habitats and how human beings affect this environment.

● Guess Who?- Ask your child to write fact cards about animals from under the sea. They can use books or websites to find out about the appearance, habitat and diet of each creature. After this, play a game of ‘Guess Who?’ using the cards and yes/no questions.

● Junk Modelling- Using junk or recycling materials from around the home, ask your child to design and make a Sea Turtle. Your child may wish to make another sea creature after this. 
 

 
● Put Your Goggles On- Your child can visit this website and watch a live stream of a tropical reef. https://explore.org/livecams/under-the-water/pacific-aquarium-tropical-reef-camera
Whilst watching, ask them to sketch all of the animals that they can see. Remind them to look at the shapes and patterns on each creature and to include these in their sketches.

 ● How do Humans Affect the Sea?- Is your child aware of all of the ways that humans affect the sea and the living things within it? Talk about and investigate the impact that human beings have on the sea. Think about fishing, transport and pollution. Create a poster or information report.

● The Oceans of the World- Using an atlas or the web ask your child to identify the world’s oceans. Year 1 children may need some support with this. Can they find out what animals live in each ocean? This game allows your child to practise naming and locating the oceans. http://www.sheppardsoftware.com/World_Continents.htm
 
Unplugged Coding ● Watch this video. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/ztqxhyc ● Create a simple under the sea obstacle course or draw an obstacle course on a piece of paper. Write simple code to guide the submarine around the obstacles found under the sea. E.g. Rocks, shipwrecks, sleeping octopus. E.g. →→↓→→↑→ etc
 
There are some lovely games and ideas from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.                       https://rnli.org/youth-education/education-resources/online-learning
