Wednesday 15th July
Hello everyone. We are nearly there!
Here are your activities for today:
Please continue to work through your White Rose activity – Week 12.
Your last spelling test of the term!
How did you do?
Well done if you have been completing your spellings each week. Sending lots of virtual dojo points your way!!
Literacy and Quest
Even though we can’t all be together this year for our end of term celebrations, we thought it would be nice to plan something that we can all do at home to celebrate this very unusual school year we have had!
Plan an end of term celebration picnic!
Raise a glass of lemonade and think of all your classmates! All the teachers and teaching assistants will be raising a glass to you all too!
Mrs Pollard will be doing the final post on Friday, so I would like to say thank you for all the hard work you have put into your home learning and for sending in lovely emails and photos of all the fun you have been having. It’s been great to see so many of your smiling faces.
This has been the most unusual few months, but hopefully you have enjoyed extra family time at home, and we can look forward to seeing each other in September.
As you may be aware, Mrs Pollard will not be with us in September as she finishes her time at Bishop's Hull School this week. I'm sure you’d all like to join me in wishing her lots of happiness in all her future adventures!
She has set some really lovely activities for you over your time at home, as well as being a fantastic teacher in the classroom too! I know I’m going to really miss working with her.
Mrs Pollard will be invited back at some point in the new school year for a special celebration assembly so you can all say goodbye properly.
Have a wonderful summer, stay safe, enjoy the sunny weather (hopefully!) and I look forward to seeing you in September.
Tuesday and Thursday
This week, use Tuesday and Thursday to add some more pages to your own project.
I wonder what you have chosen? An animal, favourite place, country, sport...
Maybe you could add some illustrations and the front cover. If you use the internet then search "How to draw..." then hopefully you'll find a tutorial of how to draw your particular project. (My daughter has enjoyed drawing a range of things during lockdown!)
Check My Maths too and see if you've completed all the activities.
Have a look at the reading tab Mrs Pollard set up on Monday for you and explore the reading challenges you can take part in over the summer.
Head over to Miss Brimble's Forest School page to find lots of fun activities to explore.
Check out the Get Active page for lots of ideas for keeping fit. Mrs Fielding has added lots of links to fun activities for you to do.
Monday 13th July
Good morning everyone! Welcome to the last week of the Summer Term and Academic Year. What a strange year it has been! This week will be lighter, but will contain some useful information for the Summer Holidays.
Here are our activities for today:-
Please continue with White Rose Home Learning Week 12. This week continues to focus on time, an area that we have not yet covered in year 2, so your child will probably need a good level of support with this. Don't worry if they struggle to read the time for every 5 minutes, this is very tricky! The general expectation is that they can read the time for every quarter (o'clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to). The worksheets are attached below.
English and Quest
This week we would like you to do your own project. This means that you can learn about something of your own choice. It could be related to our 'Blue Planet' Quest, such as a particular animal, plant, place, artist, explorer etc, or something completely different! Once you've decided on your idea, you might like to do the following:
- research (reading books and online information. Don't forget that Oxford Owl gives you access to a wide variety of non-fiction books. Also click here for Curriculum Visions which has a great selection, username: bishops.hull/0001 password: jungle.
- make some notes of interesting facts and information.
- produce a report (this could be a factfile, a video, a minibook (remember you made one for your bean diary) etc; you can choose!
We hope you love doing your own project over the coming week!
Reading in the Summer Holidays
Please can we encourage your children to read often in the Summer Holidays. This is a time when children can forget much of what they have learnt if they do not continue to practice. This year, it is even more important, given the circumstances. So here are a few ideas to inspire.
