2 Birch - Miss Davies

Your child is safer at home, please allow only critical workers the emergency school places: doctors, nurses, emergency services. If you have someone to look after your children at home, please do so. If our school reaches the maximum 20% children will be sent to other local schools. Let us prioritise two key-worker families/single parents who are saving lives

Myself, Mrs Borland and Mrs Coates are going to miss seeing year 2 Birch very much. But every morning we are going to upload learning for that day so they continue to use their brilliant minds :) A few parents asked me for a list of websites to support/extend home learning, please find this list below. Each week I will be ringing every child's parent so we have chance to discuss how the home schooling is going. 

Friday 27th March Home Learning

PE with Joe Wicks - Last one of the week 2 Birch, a massive well done to everyone who has taken part this week :) he is carrying it on over Easter so let's all keep it up!

English

If you haven't quite finished off your non-chronological report then get it finished today, I can't wait to read them :)

If you have finished, why not write a book review about a book you've read this week. In class you've wrote great book reviews previously, just remember to include the following for the reader:-

  • Title and the author
  • What is the book about? (Without revealing too much)
  • What is your favourite part/character and why?
  • Who would you recommend this book to and why?
  • What rating would you give it out of 5 stars?

Reading

Oxford Owl has a large selection of free ebooks online that you can access over the Easter break. The website is great because it lets you filter the books by age group and type of book. 

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-school/oxford-owl-ebook-collection

Keep your reading up over Easter and get lost in a book a day :) you could also read with your siblings because when reception came to our class I know how much you all loved reading with them :)

David Walliams is also reading from his books live every day at 11am for 30 mins -https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/

Maths

When I spoke with everyone a couple of parents told me they had been using the Whiterose Home Learning tool for extra maths and the children were really enjoying it. I've had a look and the activities are great, re-capping what we have covered so far. So I thought alongside my usual arithmetic challenge they could have a go at activity 1. This could also be useful if you wanted to keep a little learning going over Easter. Please follow the link below:-

Spellings

Today you could use your common exception words sheet that came home in your pack to create your own game of Kaboom! Pick around 20 of the common exception words (make sure you pick ones that you find tricky to challenge yourself!) and write them separately on a lollipop stick/piece of card. Teach your siblings/grown ups how to play and have fun playing over the holidays :) Don't forget to add 2 Kaboom sticks.

Artelier/Golden time 

On a Friday we usually do some lovely relaxing drawing in the artelier. So instead you could do some outdoor observational drawings of the lovely flowers, trees and shrubs in your gardens (maybe even the sunflower you planted) :) and even go on a hunt or two with the sheets below.

Golden time is your time to pick what you want to do at school :) so enjoy doing just that at home - baking, colouring, building, reading - whatever you love! I've put some sheets below you could pick from. One thing we were meant to build in school for our current topic was a bug hotel, this could be a fun thing to build in your garden, please find the link below to help you.

I hope you all have wonderful Easters :)

Maths

Today I've put some fractions challenges on. For the children who missed the last week or two of learning they will need extra help with this. If it's sunny you could cut the challenges up, give them a pencil and paper and create a fun fraction hunt in the garden :)

Science

Year 2 Birch learnt all about the importance of bees and created wonderful posters about why bees are so special. I thought they could have a go at creating a board game, with the aim to get the fantastic bee from crop to crop to continue it's vital pollinating mission. Please find the instructions below. Enjoy playing it with your siblings or parents :)

Wednesday 25th March Home Learning

Maths

I've put some money problems on today, but if you wanted to turn it into a practical lesson with their money instead this would be great too.

e.g. Mustafa spent 25p on a ruler and 35p on a pen. How much did he spend in total? 

Anam bought a yoyo for 50p and paid with a £1 coin. How much change did the shopkeeper give her? etc.

Followed by a game of monopoly perhaps :)

Yoga

On a Wednesday we usually do yoga, so today you could try a cosmic yoga. We've done it in class before and they love it :)

Topic

If sunny you can go on a mini beast hunt in your garden and tally your results on the below sheet. What's the most common and what is the least common mini beast you have found?

If it is not the weather to go outside, you could paint a lovely rainbow to put in your window to make people smile, like lots of children who live near me have :)

Or you can even use all of the recyclable things around your home and make a collage of colours!!
