Year 2 Home Learning 22nd February 2018

Measuring Length due Monday 26.2.18

Choose 5 items or places in or around your home, e.g. the height of the door or the length of the path). Estimate how long or tall or wide it is in metres (to the nearest metre). Record what you measured, your estimate and the actual length in your book.

Look at your body, and estimate the length of:

  • your arm
  • your foot
  • the circumference of (or around) someone’s head (maybe your sister, or brother, Mum or Dad, etc).

Then use a tape measure to measure the actual measurements and record it in your book

  • How long are both arms together?
  • How long are both feet together?
  • How much longer is your arm than your foot?

 

5M Half Term Home Learning

Your task over half term is to research a famous invention or inventor of your choosing. You can present it as a poster, short book, or using ICT. Some inventors you could choose from are Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Benjamin Franklin, James Watt, Marie Curie, Nancy Johnson, Maria Telkes, Grace Hopper or anyone else that you think are noteworthy inventors. I hope you have a fun and safe holiday and I can’t wait to see what you come up with when I see you in a week!

Be good,

Reception’s Memorable Event! Superhero Day!

Today is Superhero Day!

First we introduced ourselves as superheroes and told each other what our super powers were.

Then we received a letter from Spiderman which had been written in invisible ink! It read…. Today we are going on a rocket to the Planet Pea to get the superheroes their powers back!

First we ate some super food (raisins).

Then we had to line up with our passports (you can’t get into Planet Pea without one!)

After that we sang the song ‘Let’s Go Superheroes’!

We had to show our passports and get them stamped before we entered the Planet Pea!

Next we moved around space slowly in, on, under and over the apparatus.

Then we collected a special stone that helped us breathe in space and then we  entered the rocket.

We counted down 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 …Blast off!

We zoomed into space and swapped our special stone for a pea blaster (bean bag)!

Then we blasted Evil Pea and he was defeated!

We entered a dark tent so we could use the special light to get back our superpowers!

Finally, we all came back to Planet Earth!

What a fun adventure we had!

Do you think Evil Pea was really evil? Why? Why not?

Our Superhero Visitors – The Paramedics

We are learning all about Superheroes!

We had real life superheroes who came to visit us.

Paramedics save people everyday and help them when they are not feeling well or if they have had an accident.

What does a superhero do?

Has a paramedic ever helped you? How?

Can you remember the special equipment a paramedic carries with them?

We asked them some very interesting questions! What would you ask a paramedic?

Have a look at our photos from the day.

Can you tell your parent/carer what is happening in each picture?
