Hi Year 2, I hope you are all well and keeping safe.
We now have their very own email address so we can see what fantastic activities and learning you have been doing at home! Please email any learning, activities you have completed or anything new you have been taught to this email address, we can't wait to see it! We would also love pictures/videos which we will be able to share on our web page. I will assume that any media sent in has permission to be published on the internet.
Thank you, Miss Pring, Mrs Palfrey and Mrs Brown.
During this time, there will be daily challenges to complete! The website will be updated everyday with a new challenge for you to complete! When you have completed the challenge, email pictures/videos or a bit about what you did to the class email address (email@example.com). I look forward to seeing the challenges you have accepted!!
Complete the ELAN #weappreciateyou challenge.
You must choose a key worker role and create a poster about them decorated with a rainbow. Hold up your pieces of paper, or you could stick them to your top! At 12pm, record yourself (or take a photo with your poster) doing a minutes applause to show your appreciation. At the end, do a big shout of 'we appreciate you!'. I look forward to seeing all of your videos/photos!
Today we have a science challenge! Your challenge is to make the best bubble mixture.
Recipe: washing up liquid, water, a spoonful of sugar and glycerine (if you have it).
Bubble wand: any object with a hole eg. a loop of a keyring, a pipe cleaner bent into a circle, a hula hoop or a curtain ring.
Does more washing up liquid make better bubbles?
Which made the biggest bubble?
Can you make any other recipes to make bubbles?
Your next challenge, should you choose to accept it, is P.E!
You must create your own game that involves throwing and catching. Your game can have individual players or team players. It must have a 'goal' in order to score for example this could be a hoop, a person has to catch it in a certain area. You can create your own rules eg. can you move with the ball? can you use any type of throw?
R.E today! Can you do something to help someone in your household? What could you do to show an act of kindness?
Today we have a creative challenge for maths! Lucky for us, we have recently learnt all about shape so we are going to be brilliant at this challenge! Can you create 2D or 3D shapes using items from your house or your garden? An example could be a square out of sticks or a cube out of spaghetti and marshmallows.
Music challenge Play homemade drums - use items like tin cans, empty yoghurt containers, boxes, and coffee containers. Clean the containers, then tape or glue paper to the top to act as a drum head. Your homemade drums can also be decorated with stickers, illustrations, or glitter to make them more attractive. You can even use your pots and pans - although ask your mum/dad first!
