 Which vehicle would you like to travel in?!

Happy Monday Everyone!  It's great to be back with you all.   
Over the past few weeks, we have been thinking about lots of  different places around the world, as well as in Space.
This week, we're going to be thinking about how we  can travel to those different places.  There are many different ways to get from one place to another.    
                                                                                              Mexico Flying GIF by Camdelafu - Find & Share on GIPHY 

Our project this week is TRANSPORT....Which forms of transport are you interested in?  Space travel, aircrafts, sea travel or road transport? 
It's exciting to go to new places and travelling can be fun. 
                                                        Let's join The Muppets on one of their road trips!
                                       Road Trip Kermit GIF - RoadTrip Kermit Driving GIFs                         
                                                                                 Click on the picture to start 

So, The Muppets are having fun driving to go on holiday in their car.  Maybe this week, you would like to investigate cars?  You might like to continue with your research about Space travel.  Perhaps, you are interested in trains, ships, motorbikes or submarines?
This week, in the Learning Project activities, you might like to choose to investigate one or several of these forms of travel. 
You might like to think about modern day vehicles or find out what they were like in the past....the choice is yours!

For those of you who are in school today, I hope that you have a lovely day with Mrs Matthews and Mrs Acheson! 

Today, I will be doing the Collective Worship, so please join in by finding this picture on the The School New Articles page or look at the list at the left of this  Class 2 Page:


Have a look on your bookshelves to see if you have any stories or information books about different types of transport. 

Try to spend at least twenty minutes reading. This can be reading a book aloud or sharing a book with an adult. 

Year 2 -You can do an AR quiz when you have finished your  book: https://ukhosted79.renlearn.co.uk/6706937/

Today's story is 'Whatever Next' by Jill Murphy
Baby Bear has dreams of travelling to faraway places!

Click on the book to listen to the story    
Today’s task is to write a story about a journey.  
Choose the vehicle that you will be travelling in and decide where you will be going
For the journey, pretend to be the driver of the vehicle.        
This could be an aircraft pilot, a boat captain, an astronaut, or a driver of your choice.
What is your vehicle like?  Where are you going? Who is with you?

Phonics and Spelling:
Make an A-Z list of transport vehicles that you know. Think about transport from the past and the present. Don't worry if you can't find one for each letter, but organise the ones you do find, into alphabetical order.

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


Year 1 and Year 2                                                                                                                                                                                  
Create a picture of  a vehicle of your choice, by drawing different 2D shapes to make it.
Label the names of the shapes you use.
Here's some ideas:


Also, for anyone who would like to do a maths challenge.  Have a go at these questions!  

 Answers for Friday's challenge:


Be kind and help others

Have you done anything to help someone else today?  Try to do a kind act for someone else. It might be to help with something or it might be to do something to cheer up another person.  A friendly wave and smile through the window can mean a lot to someone who is lonely.


Choose a time when you will do some exercise today. Have you decided what you're going to do?  Maybe more than one thing.  You might like to do one of the activities below, or maybe go for a walk, run or do some cycling. 
 You could do an exercise 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/

Transport Learning Project
This week you will be learning more about transport.  You might find out  about different typs of transport, transport in the past or the science behind transport.  You could also learn about road safety and how to be safe around water. 

Wacky Wheels- Can you investigate bicycles from the past to the present?
How have they changed? 
Make a timeline of drawings of bikes through time
Have a look at the powerpoint slides below, to see lots of pictures and information about bicycles from the past.
The powerpoint might go into your downloads file.  Open the powerpoint into ‘slideshow’ so that you see everything.

Can you create a design for a bike in the future?

   Transport Through Time!-  
Look through these slides to find out what changes have taken place. 
Make sure you open the powerpoint into ‘slideshow’ so that you see everything.

-How Has Transport Changed.ppt-  

-History of transport.pptx- 
 Pictures showing the first cars -History of the car.pdf-  

 Pictures showing early space travel -History of space travel-V299535281.pptx-  

Activities that you might like to do:
Create a timeline of transport from the past to the present.
Find out about the first aeroplanes. Who was the first person to fly in one?
Find out about the first trains?  Who invented the first train?
 You could make a poster or fact file. 

Create a booklet about different forms of transport. You can choose which form of transport to write about:
You might want to do some more fact finding about rockets?
How about sports cars and racing cars?
Maybe, you are interested in sea travel – ships, submarine, boats, yachts? Perhaps trains or tractors?

Transport around the world Do all countries have the same types of transport? Investigate different forms of travel across the world.  Here’s a slide show for you to start your fact finding:

Maybe you could make a poster or a report about the transport used in a different country.

Moving Models-
Find some junk modelling around the house and a make a model car that moves.
If you prefer, you could make a model car from lego or a different construction kit.
Test it out in the garden or during your daily walk.
Does the car move faster or slower on a ramp? Why/why not?

Float your Boat!

Using a variety of materials to make boats out of junk e.g. wood, plastic , paper,  polystyrene etc.
Make a prediction about whether or not they will float and then test them to see which floats the longest. Can you write a report about which boat floated for the longest and why?
Brilliant Boats
  • Use tinfoil to create a simple boat design.
  • Try testing it by seeing how many coins it will hold.
  • What shape makes the best boat?
  • Don’t forget to recycle the tinfoil after using it!
Work hard, be kind and have a fun day. I will be back with you tomorrow!
Missing you all,
Love from Mrs Micklefield
