                                                                         Happy Monday Everybody!

Good Morning Class 2

I hope that you have had a good weekend and that you are all well.  Here are today's tasks.  Remember, you can do them in any order and you don't have to do them all if you don't have time.  For those of you who are in school today, I hope that you have lots of fun with Mrs Matthews and Mrs Acheson!

This week our Learning Project is 'Rainforests.'  Let's begin our week by watching this short clip.                                                                         
                   Click on this link  to open the film: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx882hv/articles/zxdsv                 
 

                                                 
                                                                 
                                                                                                                           

 P.E:
Wake up and shake up! Start the day with some PE, or maybe have a PE session later in the day.
Click on the link below to choose from the selection of activities. 
You could do a morning routine with Joe Wicks, find a fun activity on GoNoodle or try something new like yoga:  https://www.harrogatessp.com/keeping-all-young-people-active/

You might like to do one of these activities, or maybe go for a walk, run or do some cycling. 
                                                                                                                                                                               
                                       


 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/
How about starting the day by seeing if you have any books about Rainforests?

Today, we’re going to look at  Eric Carle’s Slowly, slowly, slowly, said the Sloth  https://safeyoutube.net/w/5Fh6
Have a go at reading the story yourself, with the volume turned off, as well as listening to the story narrator.
 
Writing:
Grammar work today.  We are going to think about verbs.
See this clip to remind you what a verb is.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/zpxhdxs
 
The tree frog, spider monkey and boa constrictor are just some of the
animals that can be found living in a rainforest. Can you make a list of verbs (action
words) to describe how each animal moves. How many can you think of?

Challenge – adverbs describe how the verbs are happening:
Slithering smoothly or creeping quietly. Can you add an adverb to each of the verbs that you collected, then create some sentences?
 
Phonics and Spelling:
The word rainforest has the ‘ai’ sound in it.  Visit Forest Phonics and select the  button showing th ‘ai’ sound.  Then click on the snail to give you words to spell.  Then choose some other sounds to work on. this interactive game and play

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.  Have a think about what you could do to help someone.  

Here are the Learning Tasks for the Rainforest Project:

The project this week aims to provide opportunities for you to learn more about the world’s rainforests.
There are activities to find out more about the plants, animals and insects that inhabit the rainforest. 
You might also find out about food that originates there and the weather patterns in rainforests.

 
Mindfulness colouring
If you enjoy colouring, here are some lovely pictures of the rainforest for you to colour, or to copy from your computer screen.
 
 Click on this link to see the parrot and lots of other animals

● Where in the World are the Rainforests?
Using an atlas or online map, can you locate the continents (Africa, Asia, Australia, Central America and South America) where rainforests can be found?

 Click here to open the map or to print a copy  -rainforest map.pdf-  
 
 
● Sketch a Spider Monkey or a Tree Frog
Can you create a detailed sketch of an animal that inhabits the rainforest? Use  pencils, crayons,  paint or any drawing tool you prefer.
Copy an image of a rainforest animal, thinking carefully about the patterns and tones. 
Here are some pictures for you to look at and there are lots more if you search 'Images of rainforest animals' on the internet.
 
            
 

● Fascinating Forest Floor- Can you create a model replica of the forest floor?
Collect materials from the garden or if you go out for a walk.
What does the rainforest floor look like?   Which animals and insects might be there?

 
           
   
                       
 

 
● The Sounds of the Rainforests- 
There are many wonderful and intriguing sounds that can be heard in the rainforest.

Watch this BBC Our Planet clip. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p011mwwt

You can watch real footage from a rainforest here. 
 https://askabiologist.asu.edu/sites/default/files/virtual-reality/rainforest-biome-VR-360/index.html
You can zoom in to look closely and control the camera to move around the page to look at different things.

Which animal makes the most noise in the rainforest?
Can you predict which animals the sounds have come from.
Can you copy these sounds using objects from around the home?
 

Rainforest Insects
●   Have a look at this video  about Rainforests: https://safeyoutube.net/w/myH6.

● There are lots of insects/mini-beasts in the rain forest.
You can see some pictures of them here: http://thinkjungle.com/rainforest-life/rainforest-insects/.

● Look for mini-beasts living in the garden or on a walk. What are these mini beasts called? Which one do you like the best and why?
● Try drawing pictures of the mini-beasts you find.

Trees and paper
Many trees in the rainforest are chopped down to use for paper.  Can you create a poster about saving and reusing paper at home?
 
 
● Take a look at the The Rainforest Alliance website https://www.rainforest-alliance.org/kids 
Iis packed full of information, resources and games which may support some of the above activities. 
There are stories, as well as an interactive tree house and a Jewels of the Earth game

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

A note for Parents, 
Just to let you know in advance.  On Friday, one of the suggested tasks is to find a simple recipe that uses chocolate and to follow the instructions to make it.  It might be useful to know about this to help with planning your shopping list!  A chocolate bar would also be useful for the fractions work on Friday. 
If you have any queries or problems, or anything you need help with, please feel free to contact me:
class2@gfschools.co.uk If the children have any photographs, pictures or work that they are particularly proud of, please forward them to me and I will post some of them on the website later in the week.
I hope you are all well. 
Thankyou,
Mrs Micklefield
