Hi Class 2,
Did you have a nice weekend? It was so cold! I kept looking out of the window to check for snow but I didn't see any. Maybe it will come today! I hope you had a good rest this weekend. Did you go outside? I took Finley and Lewis for a walk in the woods. Lewis got very muddy but he loved it! There is a photo of him below - his hair is a bit crazy because he had his woolly hat on and he needs a hair cut!
This is our last week of home learning before our half term break. I am looking forward to seeing lots of you tomorrow for our whole class story on Google Classroom at 2pm!
I hope you have a good day today. In school, we will be starting our day doing PE with Joe. The link is below if you want to join in too!
Love Mrs Sothcott x
Here is our Google Classroom Timetable for this week. Please check this carefully as timings for these sessions may be different to those of your previous sessions. There are two whole class story sessions this week. Orange, yellow and red groups have guided reading sessions this week. Blue and green groups have their sessions after half term. We will share the timetable for the first week back after half term on Friday's page.
I would like you to think of some adjectives to describe your characters and then put these adjectives into sentences.
You need to describe what your character looks like and also how your character behaves.
Year 1s, you should write at least three sentences to describe your character. Year 2s, you should write at least 5 sentences. As an extra challenge, try and use a simile in your description.
Click on the video below to watch me write some sentences to describe the giant:
You can write on the lined template below or just on some paper you have at home. Remember to use lots of adjectives!
Tomorrow we will be editing and improving our character descriptions. You can also add a picture in the box tomorrow.
This week we are moving on to thinking about time. Year 1 and Year 2 will be doing slightly different things this week as time is very new to Year 1. Year 2 you will be building on what you already know.
Today I would like you to click on the below link which is a lesson on the months of the year.
Today you will be revising what you know about o'clock times and half past times. We revised this a little bit last term so hopefully you will remember lots!
Have a look at the two PowerPoints below. One is about o'clock times and one is about half past times. There is then a lovely jigsaw activity for you to do and some problem solving for those of you who need an extra challenge.
Let's start today by playing a game to practice recognising all of the Tricky Words we have learnt on Phonics Play. Click the link below and you will need to log in with Username: jan21 Password: home. Click on Tricky Word Trucks. Year 1s, play the game 3 times - first select Phase 3, then Phase 4, then Phase 5a. Year 2s, play the game 3 times - first select Phase 4, then Phase 5a, then Phase 5b.
There are lots of different options for your P.E this afternoon. Choose one or even two of the activities below:
Orange group - log onto Google Classroom for your live Guided Reading session at 2pm with Mrs Sothcott. There is a link to the google login page on the main Class 2 remote learning page. Today we will be finishing reading 'Fun Festivals' so please have it open ready on Bug Club. See you then!
