School Closure Updates
8th June, 2020
Dear Parents and children,
We hope you have had a lovely weekend. Starting from today, you will need to log in to the Y2 Google Classroom to complete your work for the week. A newsletter has been sent to your parents with instructions to help you to do this. We will set new work each week for you to do and you will be able to hand in your work to your teachers. We are really excited to get started with this and to receive some fantastic work from you!
If you are struggling to access activities online, remember you also have the packs sent home with you when school closed.
A document outlining instructions for completing your work this week is shown below:

This half term we will be doing lots of work with our times tables, multiplication and division, problem solving and fractions. Keep checking on MyMaths, TT Rockstars and Activelearn for new activities and lessons.
Here are links to some problem solving activities you can do at home to challenge yourselves even more. You may need a grown up to help you with some of them 🙂

This term we would have been learning all about living things and their habitat (click Micro habitats to start you off!) It’s the perfect weather to explore your local surroundings, whether it’s in the garden, at the beach or in the park! With your family, through observation, talk about the differences between things that are living, dead, and have never been alive. Discuss the features of those things that are living, dead and have never been alive. Can you put them into categories? Use your investigation skills to find different specimens and explain how you know they’re alive or not. Click this link to learn more and give you lots of ideas for exploring! Is it alive?
If you’re really brave, why not make you’re own bug hotel? Look at these pages to get you started – you don’t have to spend anything, get creative and see if you can build your own using items from the home and garden. We would love to see your creations – use these links to help you with your ideas Bug hotels! How to build a bug hotel
Something simple you could try would be a ‘pine cone palace’ for ladybirds. Just gather some pine cones and bundle them together closely so the scales interlock a bit. Stuff some dried leaves in the gaps. Place the pine cones in a quiet corner of your garden shed or garage. This is good for ladybirds and lacewings who will love to crawl into the crevices and hide among the leaves.
