There are activities assigned on Education City this week linked to this week’s maths topic under the ‘Classwork’ section (logins in planners). All maths activities are also now unlocked on Mathletics so you can complete any tasks you haven’t done yet this year at your leisure.
This week, you have a summer themed booklet to use for English called ‘Year 2 Reading and SPaG activities 15.6.20’ which focuses on reading comprehension, spelling, punctuation and grammar skills. These are the essential basic skills required for your year group in reading and writing. Choose the sections you want to do first- you don’t have to complete all of it in one week!
There are some creative writing ideas in the creative learning log section below so that you still get chance to apply your writing skills and be imaginative.
***MAKE SURE TO SCROLL DOWN FOR YOUR CREATIVE TIME
As explained last week, we have switched our creative time activities to a project style approach, giving you more chance to choose the learning that interests you and really show off what you can do.
We are now one week into our new topic, ‘Up, Up and Away’ and we will continue to focus on the History element of the topic for another 2 weeks, looking at the history of flight, whether this is aeroplanes, rockets, hot air balloons, helicopters or something else. Although ideas are given for many other subject areas too, please try to complete at least one History activity from the list or from your own ideas as part of the project, as this is our key skill focus.
Please see the attached document for lots of ideas you could choose from. Please keep using our tier group email address to tell/show us what you have done each week for your ‘Up, Up and Away’ project. We have loved what we have seen so far!
