Your child will continue to be set weekly activities for English, Maths, Topic and spelling. These will be either set activities from the pack they brought home or online activities. Please keep checking as I will update this page as much as I can. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I may take a little longer to reply to your email as I am teaching the children who have returned to school but I will try my best to get back to you ASAP. You can contact me at: year2@st-bartholomews.lancs.sch.uk

This half term's topic is called 'Buckets and Spades'

English Activity

 The children have been sent home with packs and within these are lots of independent writing activities, spelling activities as well as some reading tasks. 

To add to this I will be setting assignments for the children on various websites. All of the usernames and passwords for these will either be in the children's packs or their homework books. 

These will include:

English activities on Education City https://www.educationcity.com/

Spelling activities on Spelling Shed https://play.edshed.com/login

English activities on Purple Mash https://www.purplemash.com/sch/stbarts-ol12 

Children are familiar with all of these sites. 

 

 

Science

This half term we will be looking at:

Materials

 This  Materials unit will teach your child about the uses of everyday materials including wood, plastic, metal, glass, brick, paper and cardboard. Children then go on to compare the suitability of different everyday materials for different purposes. They explore how objects made of some everyday materials can change shape and how the recycling process is able to reuse some
everyday materials numerous times. Finally, they will learn that some materials can be found naturally and some materials have to be made.

Maths Activity

The children have been sent home with packs and within these are a variety of different maths activities. 

To add to this I will be setting assignments for the children on various websites. All of the usernames and passwords for these will either be in the children's packs or their homework books. 

Alongside the maths in the children's home packs, there are a number of online activities that have been set for the children.

History

This half term we will be looking at:

Victorian Holidays 

 

 In this unit the children will develop their knowledge and understanding of the past.

They will: 

  • Recognise the distinction between present and past in their own and other people's lives (e.g. leisure and tourism in Victorian times).
  • Identify some similarities and differences between ways of life in different periods (e.g. seaside resorts now and then).
  • Know where some people and events fit into a chronological framework by using common words and phrases about the passing of time (before, after, a long time ago, past, Victorian times…).

 

 

 Mason's amazing shell for his art work this week!

Look at Leo's plant! It has grown lots over the 'learning from home' period. Can anyone guess what is growing on it?
