Welcome Year 2 to Term 6 – Splendid Skies!
Imagine floating high above land and sea on a bed of clouds, silently sweeping by on a billowing breeze. Back down to earth, let’s take a walk outdoors. But what should we wear? Wellington boots? A sun hat? Maybe a warm coat? How do we know what the weather will be like today? Read and write poems and postcards, and, if you don’t like today’s weather report, why not write your own? What weather do you prefer? Sunshine, snow, storms or showers? Get your wellies on and let’s go.

TOPIC: SPLENDID SKIES
Hello Year 2!
I hope everyone is keeping safe at home and taking the time to enjoy being at home. To keep you busy, make sure you are learning every day. Here are some things you can be doing:
Watch these videos and see if you can do the activities. You don’t need to print them, just do them on paper or discuss the answers with an adult!
Write your own versions of some stories from the Literacy Shed’s ‘Stories from other Cultures’:
Don’t forget to use:
You have your weekly spellings for the rest of the term in your spelling books; make sure you practise these 4 times a week. You can use:
Rainbow Writing (a different colour for each sound)
You can also write them into amazing sentences!
Mixture of online activities for 5-11 Year olds.
Practise your 2, 5, 10 times tables and number bonds every day!
You already have this in your homework book, but here are some more ideas to learn about Brazil. Can you complete all of them? Click the document below to download:
I hope, like me, you are enjoying the lighter days and evenings and the beautiful spring flowers.
In English, we will be learning how to write stories from other cultures. We will be reading Rainbow Bird, an Aboriginal folk tale, and other stories from around the world. Children will be learning how to write a story based in Brazil to match with our Rio de Vida (life in Rio).
In Maths, we will be moving on to focus on multiplication and division. We follow the White Rose maths scheme and you can find more information here: https://whiterosemaths.com/
Our topic this term is Rio de Vida. There will be a large focus on music this term where children will listen to samba music and create beats with percussion instruments. DT will also be a main subject where we will be designing and making headdresses and collages.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday so please ensure your child has their kit on these days. Children will be learning about balance and coordination, incorporating some samba steps! Outdoor PE will be principles of attacking and defending.
We will be continuing to learn about Islam and how Muslims celebrate Eid and other festivals around the year.
