Log in next week to see our
'10 Ways to be Perfectly Prepped for Year 3'
LAST WEEK OF SUMMER TERM !
In our final week of Year 2, we're giving you the chance to show off all of your writing skills !
Last week you researched a person of historical significance and thought of questions you could ask them in an interview.
THIS WEEK we want you to write a newspaper report of their most memorable event e.g. The moon landing OR Amelia Earhart's final journey.
You should aim to include ALL of our snazzy Year 2 writing tools:
> Capital letters and correct punctuation
> Adjectives (with commas if there's more than one!)
> Conjunctions (and, but, so, when, if, because)
> Contractions (can't, wouldn't, he's etc)
> Different sentence styles (statement, questions, exclamation)
> Fabulous handwriting !
Good luck! We're all really looking forward to reading them
Week beginning 29.06.2020
This week we are thinking especially about the lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements. For your topic work you are researching either; Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong OR Amelia Earhart.
Once you have completed your researching we would like to compile a 'TOP TEN FACTS' about your individual. What do you think everyone should know about this person? What have you found out about them that is really interesting? What would they be most proud of that they'd like you to share with us?
After this we would like you to put your DRAMA HATS on and become a television journalist OR your famous historical figure. Think of 5 questions you would like to ask your person to find out more about them. What could you ask to help you understand them or their work better?
You can present this in whichever way you choose e.g. script, magazine interview, studio recording etc
Good luck !

Our English book this week is... (Drum roll) Traction Man by Mini Grey.

This week we are thinking about beans!
We would like you to read, listen to and watch the story of 'Jack and the beanstalk' so you are really familiar with it. You could even act it out and involve your whole family too!

Have fun and remember, there are lots of resources below to help you.

For some good ideas why not have a look, with an adult at Youtube Busy Bees Scishow kids or to see how bees make honey look at Beekeeping with Maddie.

Well done with your sentences work and your 'Bee Keeper' labelling. You are going to do really well with our new topic !
For your English skills this week we'd like you to remind yourselves of adding -er and -est to adjectives. Look through the power point and play the loop card game to refresh your memory.
In addition to this, we'd like you to watch the story, 'Are you a Bee?' using the link below. You could also watch the YouTube fact clips below to boost your bee knowledge. With your new bee knowledge we'd like you to write a diary entry. Choose which type of Bee you'd like to be. Write about the different things you have to do in your day. Draw and label your body parts to add extra flare to your diary entry.
You could show us your work as a video diary, as a typed word processing OR as a written piece. We can't wait to see what busy bees you have been! Have fun !

Then, can you draw and label the outfit and protective equipment you would need to be a Bee Keeper? You should aim to include a detailed sentence to go with each label. We can't wait to see them!

This week we want you to use the skills you've been practising with Adam Adjective to write a detailed account of things you can see around where you live that prove it is Spring. We'd like you to go on a Spring hunt first to get brains really noticing things around you. Then you can add some adjectives to our signs of Spring ready to do some descriptive writing. There is a handwriting activity attached to make sure that when you write up your work in best you have your most controlled handwriting. Good luck ! We can't wait to find out about the signs of Spring you have around your house
Week beginning 13.04.2020
This week we'll be recapping adjectives with Adam Adjective by sorting and having a go at describing some potential story settings.
