 Good Morning Class 2
I hope you had a good weekend and that you are all well. 

Collective Worship
Something new to start the week.   Let's begin the day by joining Mrs Acheson for 
Collective Worship. We're all missing being together, but this is something that everybody can share, even if we're not all in school.
   Look on the News Page for this picture, to join in with Collective Worship.

This week our Learning Project is 'Around the World.'  
I think we all enjoyed learning about rainforests last week.  Now, let's find some information about other places in the world!          

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!

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. 

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 -You can do an AR 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 with information or stories about other places in the world?

Today, we’re going to share a story called 'Here We  Are' by Oliver Jeffers.  https://safeyoutube.net/w/hdi6  

Listen to the story first.  You could also have a go at reading the story yourself, with the volume turned off, as well as listening to the story narrator.

Then, think about this question: 'What makes our world so special?'   
Make a list, or draw pictures, of all the special things in the story?

Phonics and Spelling:
The word ‘around’ contains the sound ‘ou’.
Can you make a list of words containing the ‘ou’ sound?
You might also find words that contain an alternative spelling for ‘ou’ such as ow.
Click if you would like to print the task  -Sort the ou and ow words activity.docx-  

Also, please write the spellings for this week into your spelling log. 

Think about your favourite place in the world.
Can you create a leaflet about a place in the world you have visited, or that you would like to visit? Include information about the weather, food and landmarks, such as famous buildings. You could also include a picture to show what the place looks like.

Year 1 - choose a number between  1 and 20
Year 2 - choose a number between 20 and 50
Then, make a list of different ways that you can make the number using subtraction:
If my number is 10, some of my answers could be: 20-10=10, 19-9=10 or 18-8=10Project
Don’t forget that you can use some practical counting equipment to help you.

Year 1, please log into sumdog or Numbots to practise your instant recall skills.

Year 2: Please log into MyMaths to find today’s tasks.  
Last week, you did the lesson 'Counting on and over 20.  
Today, please complete the Homework Activity for that lesson.
(Some of you did this work last week, when you did the lesson.  That's fine - you can spend some time on Sumdog instead)

Also, practise your KIRFs target.  

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.  I was very pleased to hear that many of you helped with the washing up, after last week's baking activity.  Well done!

The Project for this week is called ‘All Around the World’  

You will be able to learn about countries and cities around the world and find out about different cultures and traditions, famous landmarks, food and clothing. Work on the project tasks throughout the week.  Choose the activities that interest you.   
Investigate Maps
Use an atlas or a map to locate countries that make up the UK.
Can you write the names of the countries in the UK?
Which seas surround the UK?
Look at a world map. 
Can you find and name the continents of the world?
Can you find and name some of the seas and oceans of the world?
● Flags- Take a look at flags from around the world https://www.worldometers.info/geography/flags-of-the-world/.
Which are your favourite flags? Why do you like them? Can you make your favourite flag? You could draw, paint, use collage or maybe use a computer drawing tool, such as 2Paint.
Can use find where your flag belongs on a map?
● Dance Around the World- Watch the following dances: Diwali Stick Dance, https://safeyoutube.net/w/HGi6
 Maypole Dancing https://safeyoutube.net/w/qHi6 and Spanish Flamenco Dancing https://safeyoutube.net/w/JHi6 .
Have a go at some of the moves used in these videos. You could ask an adult to record your dance, then you can see what you were doing well and what you could improve.
Can you create one of the costumes using items from your wardrobe? Perform the dance to a family member.
● Food Tasting Fun
Which fruit do you like?  Can you find out which country your favourite fruit comes from? 
If you have some fruit at home, ask an adult to cut one of the fruits open. Then have a go at sketching the inside of each fruit. Look closely at the patterns and shapes that you can see.
● Where in the World?
Have a discussion with an adult about your own family heritage.
Discuss your family traditions and where your family originates from.
This may be where you live now, or it could be somewhere completely different.
Can you create a poster or PowerPoint all about your family?
Can you include a map identifying the country that you are from? If this is different to where you live now, you could add both maps.
Speak the Language- There are lots of different ways to say hello around the world.
Learn how to say hello in Spanish, French, and Italian and some countries of your choice, using Google Translate. https://translate.google.co.uk/ Write ‘hello’ in the English box, then choose a country to find their ‘hello’ word.  You can click on the speaker button to hear the word.
Practise writing ‘hello’ using the colours of the flag for each country.
Famous Buildings Around the World
● The Bird’s Nest is the world’s largest steel structure and was built in China for the 2008 Olympic Games. It is made out of 26 miles of steel.
● Use strips of paper, card or wool to create your own bird nest style building. You might like to search for photos of the ‘Birds nest’ to help you with your design.
Here are some famous buildings in London:
The Shard                                       Big Ben                               The Gherkin
Can you find any other famous or interesting buildings around the world? 
This one is called The Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Can you find out which is the world’s tallest building?

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