A little something for you!

Dear Elephant Class,

I hope you are well and remembering to help your grown ups if they ask you.

Here are some ideas of things for you to do while you are at home: 

  • Remember to read for at least 20 minutes every day.
  • Watch Newsround and write about what you saw.
  • Practise your times tables as much as you can.  You can write them out, chant them, rap them, ask an adult to quiz you.  You should be planning to know your 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 8s and 10s.
  • It is really important to remember to get outside and do some exercise every day.  It is important for you to keep healthy in your body and mind. Jump on your trampoline, kick your football, ride your bike or scooter.
  • Our topic at the moment is 'Hot Chocolate'. You could write a character description of one of the children from our book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. 
  • Every week I will set you some maths games on the Abacus website. You all have your passwords  and logins and the school code is: bari 
    Here is a link to the Abacus website 

https://www.sjb.lewisham.sch.uk/Class-Page-Year-2/

 

 

Take care all of you and I am already looking forward to seeing you all soon.

From Mrs Graham, Ms Brand and Ms Jones

DO NOT do a tally chart of how many times you laugh and DO NOT do a tally chart each time they say the word fart!! (you know I am joking, of course I want you to do the tally charts)

Thursday 26th March 2020

This morning I made this poster and stuck it in my window. I wanted to say thank you to all the people who are working in the hospitals who are helping people get better from the coronavirus and caring for them.

Can you make a poster too and put it in your window? Just imagine if everyone in Elephant Class made one! I think lots of NHS workers would see them as they pass our homes.

What colours would you use? What would you write on yours? Would you colour yours using paint, pencils or pens? Please email me a photo of your poster when you have finished it. I can't wait to see them!

 

Newsround

We love watching Newsround don't we. Have a look at this:

Here is an evaporation experiment for you to do!

What you need:

A cup, some water, a pen or tape

  1. Place a cup of water in a very sunny place. If it is a plastic or paper cup, use a pen to mark the level of the water. If it is a normal cup you could mark the level with a piece of tape.
  2. Check the water level every hour and see what changes. As the sun heats the water, it should begin to evaporate it.
  3. How long does it take for all your water to disappear?

How to make rain! This is a condensation experiment.

This one looks really good and I am going to do it too. BUT IT DOES INVOLVE HOT WATER SO YOU MUST DO IT WITH AN ADULT

What you need:

A glass or see-through container, a plate, some ice.

  1. First fill a cup a bit more than half full of hot water.
  2. Put a plate on top of the cup with hot water.
  3. Then place an ice cube on top of the upside down cup.
  4. Watch as condensation begins to form on the bottom of the plate, just like a cloud!

You can watch someone else doing the experiment here.

 

Wednesday 22nd April

What jobs do people do?

Lesson 1

Watch this video about the different jobs people do. You can pause the video when you want to write down or share your ideas.

Lesson 2Read the information on here. Then answer these questions:

1. What does NHS stand for?

2. How many different types of jobs are there in Healthcare?

3. How many people are now registered on the NHS jobs website?

4. What job would you like to do when you grow up?

Lesson 3

Find out about 4 different jobs here.

Imagine your job is a fitness instructor! Design a fitness class and challenge your family to take part in it!

1. Which one of the jobs would you like to do and why? I think I would like to try Patryk's job!

Lesson 4

Find out what different people enjoy about their jobs here.

1. Write down the things they enjoy about their jobs.

2. Interview some of your grown ups and find out what they enjoy about their jobs.

Lesson 5

Now read the newspaper and find out about:

  • how a drone is helping the NHS
  • what other children think about space

 Now choose at least one of these ideas to do:

 1. Imagine your job is a fitness instructor! Design a fitness class and challenge your family to take part in it!

2. Give yourself 1 minute to list as many jobs as you can think of. Now ask someone else in your home to do it but they can’t use any of the ones you’ve already listed!

3. Some people wear a uniform to work. Discuss some of the reasons a uniform is worn e.g. the uniform protects them, we recognise who they are, it shows they belong to that job/group. Design a uniform for a job of your choice.

4. Think about how jobs and roles have changed over time. Can you research what jobs people did 50 years ago, 100 years ago? How are they the same/different?

5. Most people earn money for doing their job. Different jobs pay different amounts of money. Look at some of the different coins and notes we use and say what each is worth. Create a wish list of things you would like to save up for and buy. What notes and coins would you need to pay for each item exactly? Would you get change from £100? How much?

Good morning everyone! I hope you have all had a good weekend. Here is our learning for this week:

Maths

Lesson 1

We are looking at right angles again. Please find the lesson here. Do you remember when we looked for right angles in our classroom? This lesson will remind you all about right angles.

Lesson 2

Comparing angles

Do you remember the way we remembered the names of the different angles? We said angles smaller than a right angle were little and cute and their proper name is acute. Angles that are bigger than a right angle are called obtuse, do you remember that we said it slowly and loudly so that it sounded bigger?
