A Message from Mrs Marsland
 
Dear Year 2,
Thank you so much for the gorgeous wooden plaque and other generous presents. I have missed you all so much the last few months. I hope you are all fit and well and I can’t wait to see you around school in September.
I hope you all have a lovely summer.
Lots of love
Mrs Marsland xx
Thoughtful Thursday 16th July
 
Hello boys and girls. One more sleep and you will evolve into wonderful Year 3 children. I can't believe how grown up you all have become over the lock down period. You have been so sensible and have tried hard in these difficult times. Well Done! 
Today is a 'thoughtful' day- thinking back to how you were at the beginning of Year 2, thinking back to all the things we did in school before lock down in March. Have a look back to our original class page on the site- look at the photographs and videos.How have you changed? Some of you will be more gummy. Some will have grown taller. All of you will have learned a little more about the world around you. 
I've loved looking back to The Owl and the Pussy Cat recital, the pictures from our Pumpkin Soup assembly and Christmas Nativity- The Inn-spectors. We've made soap and soup- not all in the same bowl. We have pretended to be Victorians at Birkenhead Park and Port Sunlight. We have learned about Kitty Wilkinson, Mother Teresa and Florence Nightingale. We have explored the continents in our Fair Trade topic, learned about inventors and become very good gardeners and scientists. What a year!
What have been your favourite parts? Funniest memory? Not so funny times? Friendships? Challenges that you won in the end? Attached is a poster you could make to help you think of the things you have done this year, at home or at school, to show how amazing you have been. You may want to do your own poster or just enjoy looking back through the VLE pictures. 
Please read The Cautious Caterpillar story attached. Some of you will be a little nervous moving to the juniors but it should be exciting- You'll do lots of great things with Mrs Mitchell. I have added a little booklet if you would like to complete it before you meet Mrs Mitchell- I'm sure she would like to find out more about you. The story of the caterpillar is just like you- worried about changes. 
I'm also putting links to good reads over the Summer Break for your age range:-
 
DON'T FORGET THE NATIONAL SUMMER READING CHALLENGE TOO:  https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/find-a-read
 
It's Carnival Party/ picnic Day tomorrow in school as we say farewell to Miss Marshall to Brazil and Miss Brophey to Spain so I won't be setting any work tomorrow but I will write a final message to you all- my lovely Year 2s. So Toy Day for you! 
Mrs Goulding

Weather presenters use new words such as weather front, moving westerly, cold snap, sunny intervals, overcast. What do you think these phrases mean?

To all the parents and children in Year Two,
 
Thank you so much for the lovely plaque that you sent me. It was a really unusual present and must have taken a lot of organising.  It was  great reading all the children's names. Such a thoughtful gift.
 
I hope you all have a great summer and you manage to get out and about, have lots of fun and hopefully enjoy some sunshine.
 
I look forward to meeting up with you all again in September. Take care and stay safe.
 
Miss Hine xx

Wonderful Wednesday  1st July

Good morning children.

Today’s tasks:

  • Exercise- Enjoy the fresh air- take a stroll or ride your scooter/ bike.  Be safe!
  • Mental Maths- 2Do Purple Mash 2D 3D shape sort   
  • Maths- For the next few maths lessons you will need a need a centimetre ruler with millimetres on to show where half centimetres lie. It would be good to practise drawing steady lines with a ruler too-drawing lines to centimetres and half centimetres. You may want to measure things around your home to practise accurate measuring- maybe measure your sunflowers!!

For today, use White Rose Week 9, Lesson 1- Measuring length in centimetres (cm).  

  • Snack Time story- Please choose a story of your choice at home
  • English—Descriptive Language about Lila and the Secret of the Rain-Expanded Noun Phrases- Use the expanded noun phrase sheet below to describe parts of the story. When you have completed the sheet use a different colour pen to edit your choice of adjectives by using a thesaurus/dictionary or use an online thesaurus to select more effective word choices. For example: Her little, red dress was wet= Her little, crimson gown was drenched
  • Science- Miniature Garden Project (over three weeks) Make a start on your miniature garden design- If you have not collected your pack, it is outside on the school path (in front of the office, NOT in the office) in a named bag along with your books until 4pm today and/ tomorrow 8:30 am-4pm). To avoid congestion when picking up, if you can collect for another class member and pass the pack on if you live near them, then that would be very helpful and kind of you. Keyworker children in school today will be given theirs in class. Thank you. 
  • Art/ DT- finish your rainmaker- photos gladly received.
  • Mrs Goulding

Thoughtful Tuesday 30th June 2020 

Hello Year 2.

Today’s tasks:

  • Exercise- enjoy the fresh air and take a walk.... if you can dodge the showers.
  • Mental Maths- 2Do Purple Mash 3D shape pairs
  • Maths- Watch the video below for week 8 lesson 4- Merge 2 and 3D patterns- there are four sheets but quick response questions on most.
  • Snack Time story- re-read Lila and the Secret of the Rain.
  • English- Reflective writing. Having read the story of Lila again, think about how she felt at different parts of the story. When was she most tired? Upset? Happy? Worried? Lila experiences many feelings throughout the book. Can you think of synonyms that may expand upon her feelings? For example: Was Lila tired or was she exhausted, lethargic or weak?  When the rain came was she happy, thrilled, jolly, content? Sometimes a word can be more powerful than another even though they mean similar things. I wonder which words you would choose. Using the sheet about memories below - think back to different times in your life and briefly explain how and why you felt this way- are there better words to describe how you felt at the time?
  • Art and DT-Rainmakers-for today and tomorrow- see Power point below.

 

 Have fun

Mrs Goulding

Magnificent Monday 29th June

Good morning children. I have loved some of your ‘Heroes’ stories- some sad, some funny. - Well done for writing and editing- editing is hard to do as sometimes you just want to finish but it is always good to re-read and tweak ideas to make them even more AMAZING. You will be doing a lot of editing of work in the Juniors so well done for persevering.

Today's Tasks:

  • Exercise- see exercise plan on GOLF attached below
  • Mental Maths- 2Do Purple Mash- 2D shape pairs  
  • Maths- Today is a catch up maths lesson from last week as some of the White Rose sheets took longer than expected. Today in school we are finishing the 2D and 3D shape sort- Week 8, Lesson 3 . If you are up to date and want to do further maths a shape investigation has been set for you.
  • Snack Time story-Lila and the Secret of the Rain by David Conway- see the scanned in pages below.
  • English-Suffixes- Suffixes are letters that add to the end of a word. Sometimes they just add on, sometimes you have to alter the spelling of a word for grammatical reasons so that it sounds right when you read it. There are rules we follow for this- they will be on the sheets attached to remind you. For example: ‘sad’ : +ly = sadly, +ness = sadness (noun), +est= saddest (needed to add a double consonant for an adjective). Sometimes suffixes do not sound correct and you just need to hear it out loud to check. Spot the wrong ones: sadful, saddened, sadded, sadding. Click on the suffix sheet below for words taken from Lila and the Secret of the Rain to add the correct suffix- there may be more than one version- select one sheet or do the two if you want to.
  • Geography –Describing the features of the Isle of Coll .

Remember when we did a ‘Welcome to Wirral’ leaflet in school and we described the landmarks and the many features of the Wirral, inviting people to come and visit our peninsula? I’ll remind you- we used different verbs such as ‘You can devour an ice cream on Parkgate promenade. You can stroll across to Hilbre Island or dig sandcastles on West Kirby beach. You can explore the famous Birkenhead Park or visit the galleries in Port Sunlight village…etc’. This time, using the photographs of the Isle of Coll (That’s the Isle of Struay in the Katie Morag stories) I would like you to describe the things you can do or see on this island. Describe its features such as what are the beaches like? Does it have any cliffs or valleys? Is the coast line flat or hilly? Does it have a town or a village? A harbour or an airport? You can either write it as one piece of writing or print off some of the photographs and write captions under them describing what is there. Remember that a caption describes a photograph or a picture. You need to include capital letters, full stops/ ? , adjectives and verbs. The photos of Isle of Coll are attached below.

Good luck

Mrs Goulding

As part of our science topic on growth, in school we would have been looking at our own school garden, what grows in it and finding out what an allotment is. Instead, for a home task, I am setting a ‘miniature garden’ challenge. Foil trays and gardening packs will be ready to pick up for every Year 2 child from 8:30am- 4pm on Wednesday and Thursday (1st and 2nd July ). Due to COVID-19 we would like to reduce the amount of people on the school premises and avoid entrance to the school office when collecting the packs. If you live near another member of our class, and could collect for them, then that would be a real help too. We are going to leave the packs on a table on the school path at the main gate in waterproof named bags and instructions inside. We will hand packs to children who are already in school in the class bubbles.

We are also sending your school books home to keep as sadly we won’t be using them again for Year 2 work. 

Fantastic Chill Friday 26th June 2020

 Today’s tasks:

  • Exercise: see clip above- mindfulness relaxation

What have these people done to care for you- to be your personal hero? Print out one or more the certificates below and award it to your chosen personal heroes. On the back, write in more detail WHY they are your heroes to let them know that they are appreciated. You will see super smiles grow on super real heroes.

Your caption might describe the picture or state a fact. You may want to use more scientific language- there will be a bank of words to choose from. Remember correct sentence punctuation.

Think about interesting adjectives, adverbs and verbs, conjunctions to stretch sentences and different sentence types such as adding a question (?), an exclamation of feeling (!) or a statement (.). Will you add dialogue using inverted commas (“…”)?

This is a three day task-

i)                    A day to make notes and plan your story- use a story hill or draw a story map if it helps to see your ideas. If you think you are ready to start it- go ahead.

ii)                    A day to follow your plans and write it out .(At least 60 minutes on this- take a break in the middle to re-read and check your work)

iii)                 A day to re-read and edit your work in order to improve it. Will you use a thesaurus/ dictionary to look for alternative synonyms? For example instead of using ‘red’ you could use ‘scarlet/ crimson/ ruby’; instead of using ‘thought’ what about ‘pondered/ wondered/ dreamt?

  • Art- Heroes- Use the Power point Art tells a story- the task is on the last two slides.
Enjoy!

Mighty Monday 22nd June

Good morning children. Hope you are refreshed for another week. The sunshine has come back! As a whole school, we will be thinking about super heroes, real heroes and our own local heroes throughout this week. Therefore, we are postponing our DT task with two kitchen roll inners or a long cardboard tube until next week- keep hold of them.

Today's Tasks: 

  • Exercise- click above
  • Mental Maths- 2Do Purple Mash  x tables game  
  • Maths- Watch the video first- the video link is now below on our class page. It is more about fractions. Question sheet below. Summer Term Week 7 (Week beg: 18th  June) Lesson 3 – Find Half
  • Snack Time story-Traction Man https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FfW3X1V4J0 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JySea288Qo
  • English- Imagine you are a superhero. Watch the clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4Wv3J2trMs Use the super hero identity sheet to describe yourself or do your own poster if this sheet is too small. Draw a picture of yourself in your super hero costume or perhaps your powers are hidden beneath ordinary clothes??? Label the special effects/ powers of your costume. Do you have a mask? A cape? A special vehicle or gadget? What sound effects come from you? Remember in class when we watched the ‘onomatopoeia’ clip when Batman was in battle? Kapow!… BOOM! Zap!
  • Geography – Aerial Photographs and plans. Aerial photographs are pictures taken from up above- sometimes we say this is having a ‘bird’s eye view’. Imagine you are a bird, a drone or even a flying superhero looking down from the sky. What do you see? The world looks different from above. Have you ever been in an aeroplane and looked out of the window at take-off or landing? The land gets smaller as you go higher, you can only see the tops of objects below. Cars look like little ants, houses look like blocks, fields look like green blankets.  

1) Quiz - Look at the ‘Aerial Photos’ power point below- It’s a little quiz to see if you have a good eye to recognise places near where we live. The first photo is a satellite photo taken from space to start you off. I think you will recognise the shape.

2) My Plan-The last slide is not an aerial photo but a plan I have drawn, pretending that I am a bird above our school. Can you make out the places in our school? Can you see the Trim trail? The car park? The field? Year 2 entrance? I have used a key with symbols to help explain some of the shapes.

3) Your Plan -Choose either your own bedroom or your garden and imagine you are a bird, a drone or a superhero hovering above. Draw a simple plan of your bedroom/ garden using a key with symbols to explain some of the shapes.

Good luck

Terrific Thursday 18th June

Good morning all. Well done to the boys on Times Table Rockstars. Supersonic effort by you . Well done to the girls that put an extra special effort in too as not everyone joined in. Some of you are getting really fast at your x table facts now. Keep practising.

 Today’s tasks:

  • Exercise- YOGA see above clip
  • Mental Maths- 2Do Purple Mash x2 and x3
  • Maths- Watch the video first. You can access the video on line https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ -  Question sheet need accessed below r  Summer Term Week 7 (Week beg: 8th June ) Lesson 1 -Fractions
  • Snack Time story- - CBeebies Radio- Rosie’s Refugees- or cut and paste into your search engine: https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/radio/roses-refugees?collection=radio-refugee-stories
  • English—Writing Prepositions- prepositions are words that describe where something or someone is in relation to other things. Remember Rosie’s Walk? The hen went on her walk and the author described where she went. Watch the clip then follow the Power point below. You will need to work through each slide to write your sentences down- there are missing prepositions. Choose the best preposition from :                                                                        in front, behind, next to, above, under, in and on.

Art- George Seurat- Watch the 3 clips below about the famous French artist George Seurat. He used a technique called ‘pointilism’. If you have paints or thick felt tips, paint your own pointilism picture with colours next to each other rather than mixed together to see other colours from a distance. I’d love to see a photo of your work. 
 
Bon Chance (Good luck in French) 
Mrs Goulding

Please follow the Power point on islands everywhere. You will need a map/ Google Earth/ atlas to help you locate islands as part of the British Isles. On the Power point you may spot The Isle of Mull- this is the neighbouring island to Isle of Coll- remember Mairi Hedderwick wrote her stories about her adventures on the Isle of Coll through her fictional character of Katie Morag- she called it a different name- Isle of Struay. There is a short clip about the Orkney islands which are similar to Katie Morag’s island. Please see the activity sheets attached to locate other British Isles. (The activity sheets have stars on them 1-3. One star is the easiest sheet, three star is more challenging- see which sheet works best for your child.)

Monday 15th  June 2020 

 Good morning children. Many apologies that you could not access our school website last Thursday and Friday. All Wirral school networks were down. I hope you got time to chill- perhaps fit some Times Table Rock Stars and reading in. Please see Thursday 11th June for today's tasks. 

  • Thunder Storm Writing-If for some reason you were able to access the tasks, please write about a thunderstorm- It can be within a story, a poem or some factual information about thunderstorms. We had an amazing storm on Saturday night didn't we? It lasted for a long time with lots of flashes of lightning (collective noun!!!). 
  • Remember to check Purple Mash 2Dos and continue with Times Tables Rock stars.
  • You can still access Bug Club but through its own website at www.activelearnprimary.co.uk 
  • Check your Random Acts of Wildness chart from the Wild Life Trust you started  last week. We have had some brilliant acts of wildness. Oliver has dug a pond and it has tadpoles in already. Photos on the way of your super work.
