Follow the link to visit BBC bitesize.  Today's lesson is all about alliteration.  Alliteration is when words in a sentence start with the same sound.  Can you write some alliterative sentences? https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z2pp7yc

Hello Year 2,

I hope you have all been enjoying the shape work. This is the last one before we move onto another topic.

Hi Year 2,

Let's play some phonics games!  

If you are in Mrs Nuttalls phonics group I'd like you to play the game 'Past Tense Penguins'.  You will be given a word and you will have to decide what changes need to be made to make the word past tense - https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/6/past-tense-penguins

 

For all other groups I'd like you to play a game of 'Tricky Word Trucks'.  Follow the link and select the phonics phase you were learning at school.  Remember - We cannot sound out tricky words.  Say the ones that you know as fast as you can.  If there are any that you are unsure of, ask a grown up to help you.  Try to play at least 5 times and see what your best score is at the end.  https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/2/tricky-word-trucks

Good morning Year 2,

It's a rainy Monday, but I can just see a few patches of blue sky out of my window.

I hope you are enjoying your shape work. I wonder if you could make some shape pictures today. Or you might be able to find some 3D shapes in the kitchen cupboards. Always check with a parent or carer before you explore!

Watch the video on sorting 2D and 3D shapes before you try the activity.

Homework activities

YEAR 2

Today is the day. The wind is out so we will go and fly our kites, we are really excited.

Monday 3rd February-Friday 8th February Keeping Safe Week

This week has been a real important week we have been learning lots of ways to keep ourselves safe.  On Monday we took part in Happy Minds Yoga, watched a road safety video and then we went out to put what we had learnt into practice.  We used the four rules when crossing the road STOP! LOOK! LISTEN! and THINK!.  We also made some road safety posters. The children did really well and know how to cross the road safely.  On Tuesday we did Happy Minds Yoga and Learnt about medicines and ways of keeping healthy and well.  Wednesday Happy Minds Yoga and an afternoon of First Aid. We watched videos of different types of accidents and what we should do.  We then practiced putting someone into the recovery position.  Thursday was Internet Safety where we learnt lots of ways to keep ourselves safe on the Internet, we then went into the hall to watch Y6's play in a day performance on Keeping Safe on the Internet.  Friday was Happy Minds Yoga and Keeping Safe and the rules, why we have rules and why they are important.

E-SAFETY  

Two children from the digital leaders came and taught us how to stay safe on the Internet.  They delivered an absolutely amazing lesson and the year 2 children were really keen to ask and answer any questions they had.  The year 2 children loved the e-safety video so much they asked to watch it again the next day.  Well done to the digital leaders!! 

As part of Keeping Safe Week the children learnt some basic first aid.  The children knew lots about basic first aid and what to do in an emergency.  We watched some videos and then the children practiced putting someone into the recovery position. 

January 2020

Today we started to make our kites.   We made a cross shape with two sticks and then wrapped string around the edges to make a diamond shape.  Next week when we have finished our kites we will be flying them outside.  Fingers crossed we get a windy day because without the wind we cannot fly our kites.

FAMILY SEAL!!!!!

We had fun at our Christmas party!!!

PARLIAMENT WEEK

Article 12: The right to have your voice heard and for adults to listen and take it seriously.

 This week has been Parliament Week we have been learning all about parliament and  at the end of the each day we watched Newsround to find out what has been happening in the House of Commons.   We have also been voting for lots of different things around school.  We had a vote in our class on who wanted to do certain jobs in the classroom.  We voted for who wanted to take over as the class teachers for Take-over Day on Friday.  Then later on in the day we went into the hall and voted in the voting booths for who we wanted out of the Year 6s to be headteacher, deputy head and the office staff.
