Year 2 Remote learning Jan 5th- 7th
Hi year 2,
Here is your remote learning for this week if you are isolating - remember, you don't have to complete any work at home if you feel poorly! Make sure your grown up let the school office know if you are isolating. Mrs Large will check in with them via e-mail over the next few days to check you are all ok.
Your class are focussing on measure. Here are some activities you can do at home:
You can measure to compare things and see which is longer and which is shorter. If you have a ruler or a measuring tape that's great, but you can also use strips of paper, or something like cubes or building blocks or even toy cars etc. (e.g. the cereal box is 3 toy cars long but the bag of flour is only 2 toy cars long. This means the cereal box is longer than the bag of flour. The bag of flour is shorter.)
It would be great if you could make a list of things around the house that are smaller than a metre, and a list of things that are bigger than a metre - you might need a grown up to show you roughly how big a meter is, and then estimate.
Don't forget to spend time on TT Rockstars too!
In English your class are watching Charlie and the Chocolate factory. If you have the book or movie at home then that's wonderful, but please don't worry if you don't! You can watch the trailer here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cBja3AbahY and then have a think about the following questions:
It's a short clip, but what impression do you get of Charlie? (kind? loud? aggressive? fun? etc) and why?
Would you like to visit the Chocolate Factory? Why/Why not?
Do you have any predictions as to what might happen in the story?
If you could build your own chocolate factory, what would you include and why?
Then, maybe you could design, draw and label your very own chocolate factory!
(Please don't worry too much about the questions by the way. There aren't really any right or wrong answers, and I know it's tricky when you're only going by the trailer. It's just a little something to get you thinking.)
There are other clips from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory online which you may like to watch, but please only search for them and watch them if a grown up is with you!
Finally, don’t forget the range of super online learning resources available on the school website here: https://www.st-johns-pri.bham.sch.uk/whole-school-online-resources/.
