Year 2 - Lilac

WORKING AT HOME

Dear all,

Thank you for your patience and understanding in this unusual time. As stated in the working from home letter, each day children are expected to complete 1 piece on English work/comprehension from their booklet, 1 piece of Maths work from their booklet, 1 piece of additional work and some reading.

 

The additional work could be practising your keyword spellings, MyMaths, TTRS, physical exercise or writing a descriptive piece of writing about a Pobble picture  from Pobble 365. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays I will post 3 additional topic based tasks to be completed in the green exercise books provided.

 

If you have any problems, please email me on lilac@balliolschool.co.uk – I will get back to you as soon as I can and I will do everything I can to help!

 

 

Monday 23rd March: Geography/Computing

Find out about different plants and flowers that grow in a rainforest. Organise your information using bullet points.

How does the climate affect how and where plants grow?

What is your favourite plant? Why?

Here are some websites to get you started…

Wednesday 25th March: Art and Design

Think about the colours and different textures you could use. How could you show all the detail of the parts of the flower?

 

I would love to see a photo of the art you create or just to hear from you… email me! lilac@balliolschool.co.uk

 

Stay safe!

Thursday 26th March

Hi to all of you, I have seen some lovely art pictures! Please send them to me or just message me to say hello. It is so strange being away from you!

You can now do AR quizzes at home too, so if you have some books at home, please read them and get quizzing! Any problems please let me know. 

Take care of yourselves and stay safe and keep well,

Mrs Trudgill

Friday 27th March: RE

We have been learning about lots of different special times that different religions celebrate including Diwali, Christmas and Chinese New Year. We have discussed other special times that we may celebrate including birthdays, christenings, weddings or the birth of a family member. Choose a special time that you celebrate and draw a picture and write a few sentences to describe how and why you celebrate it. This could be religious but it does not have to be.

 

I hope you have all had a good week and are enjoying the sunshine! Enjoy your weekend.

Monday 30th March: Science

If you can, go outside on a minibeast hunt! Explore different habitats to search for ants, spiders, ladybirds and other minibeasts. In your exercise book, draw a picture of the ones you found or stick in photographs and write about them answering the questions below…

What is it called?

Where did you find it?

Why do you think you found them where you did?

Wednesday 1st April: Science

Go on a scavenger hunt and record what you find in your exercise book. Enjoy!

Friday 3rd April: Music

They are drinking cans of coke!

Holly verse

Tigers, see the tigers!

They are walking on the moon!

Tigers, see the tigers!

They are walking on the moon!

Unicorns are dabbing well

Unicorns are dabbing well

Tigers, see the tigers!

They are walking on the moon!

 

Lilac verse

Lions, see the lions!

They are licking lollipops!

Lions, see the lions!

They are licking lollipops!

Moo moo cows are eating crisps

Moo moo cows are eating crisps

Lions, see the lions!

They are licking lollipops!

 

Create another verse to our ‘Zootime’ song. Can you think of a silly thing an animal could do? Remember to think about how many syllables the line has in it to make it fit with the rhythm. Create some actions to help you remember the words to your new verse. Sing your song to someone in your family; can you use some items from around your house to play whilst you sing? If not, try using your body to create a sound (clapping, clicking, stomping etc). I would love to hear your songs!

REMINDER

Please complete My Maths tasks that have been set. There is lots of outstanding work so please check that you have completed all of them. If there are a few just do one or two a day. Thank you!

Easter Holidays

Hi all! Hope you have had a lovely 2 weeks. It has been odd not being at school and seeing you all… I have missed you! I have really enjoyed reading emails from you, so thank you if you have sent some.

 

I thought I would put a few ideas on here for over Easter if you fancy it but there is no pressure to do it! I hope you have a lovely Easter break, enjoying chocolate and I hope to see you soon.

 

From, Mrs Trudgill

What have we been up to?

Thursday 7th November

We performed our class assembly this morning to KS1 and our parents. We displayed all the hard work we have completed so far in Year 2, our super singing and we all said our lines clearly. Mrs Trudgill and the other adults in Lilac class are very proud of us all!

Thursday 14th November

We have been exploring the book Traction Man and thinking about the story settings that he visited. We created our own setting and used our imagination to think about how some items could be other things. For example, the scissors became terrifying sharks! 🦈

Our Current Topic is The Scented Garden

We are finding out about plants and what they need to survive. We are looking for plants around us and deciding how they have grown.

What are we reading now?

We are reading The Giraffe, Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl. We have found out lots about the author, his work and his life.

 

Other books we have enjoyed this year have been: The lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe along with various books by Anthony Browne such as The Tunnel, Piggy Book, Into the Forest and Gorilla.
