Week 11

Hi Crickets and welcome to week 11 of your home learning!


I really enjoyed meeting with some of you through teams this week. It was great to see all your smiling faces. Don't forget to join again this week. 


Until then, below are some great activities to keep you busy throughout the week.


Don't forget to keep sending in your lovely work. We love seeing what you have been getting up to:


This week's work is all about animals and, in particular, a big Blue Whale.  Open the document below and follow the lessons - everything you need is there for you!




By the end of year 2, children are expected to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. It is also really important that we can apply this knowledge to real life problems. Below there are a set of multiplication and division word problems for you to have a go at! 

Now, here's a website for you to practise your skills!  When you go on to the website, make sure you go to the multiplication section.  You can then start on the Bronze Level - can you make it all the way to Gold?  If you want to look at any of the other sections, after you've done the multiplication one, please do!


For your science this week, I'd like you to pick any animal of your choice and find out all that you can about it.  What is its habitat?  How would you describe its appearance?  What is its diet?  You could also see what other amazing facts you can learn about it.

Then, it's up to you as to how you present those facts.  You could make a fact sheet, a poster, a powerpoint, or even record a video!  I can't wait to see which animal you decide to do and how you present your facts!



Outdoor Learning


This week, you need to go out and explore the colours that are around you in nature.  First, put some double-sided sticky tape onto a piece of card and pull off one side, so you have a sticky strip.  (If you don't have double-sided tape, then just fold over a piece of normal selotape, so it has a sticky side).

Then, you need to go off and look around outside for shades of colours e.g. shades of green, yellow etc.  Collect as many different natural objects that are green and stick them onto your sticky strip - then repeat with other colours.  You will be amazed at how many shades of colours are out there! 




As we've been learning all about animals this week, why don't you follow the video below and try to create your own origami animals...
