Loving, learning, growing together with Jesus

Week Beginning 8th JuNE

Hello Year Two and welcome back to your home learning.  We hope that you have all had a lovely break. Lots of us had holidays booked that we couldn't go on but the weather was so warm it was just like being in a hot country!

Maths:

Look at the daily videos from the White Rose Maths website https://resources.whiterosemaths.com/resources/year-2/ 

We are up to week 7 already.  Each day from Monday to Thursday there is a new video and the worksheets for each day are below. On Friday there is a maths challenge.  If you complete the challenge, email your teacher so that they can celebrate with you.

 

History and Geography:

We are going to be looking at explorers of the world.  We are going to begin with Pirates.  But first, I want you to think about what you already know about them.  You need to make a mind map like we do in school.

On a blank piece of paper write the word Pirates in the middle. 

Now, write or draw, a list of what you already know.  try to include:

Who they were

What they wore

Where they lived

What they did

How they travelled

Do you know any piratical words?

 

What else can you come up with?  Have you managed to fill up the whole page?

Do you know any stories or films with pirates in?  Have you got any piratical books? Maybe you could make a little display with them.

 

English:

Today, 8th June, is World Oceans Day. Can you remember the oceans song we learned in the autumn term? The Oceans Song
