With support from your adult, research your cultural background and any images that represent it e.g. emblems, plants, animals, patterns. Record these on the template provided and write some sentences to describe them. We will use this in our Art work later this term 🙂
Year 2 will start receiving spelling homework. They will bring home a complete list of the Year 2 common exception words. They will also have a sheet to help them practice this weeks chosen words. Each week, they will bring home a list of ten new words from the main list. They have been shown how to use this sheet to practice spelling. They have also been encouraged to practise the words on a piece of paper before attempting the homework.
***We have stuck in the children’s Google classroom login details and given you a step by step of how to log in. You do not need to do anything with this information now we are just preparing for the future.***
We dressed up for Victorian day. We experienced a typical day in a Victorian school with the 3 R’s: reading, writing and arithmetic. We then explored different Victorian toys and games and read through some fun non-fiction books on the strict Victorians.
We looked at examples of different Victorian toys. We then made our own Jack-in the box to play with.
The children have made funky bookmarks. Have a look at their amazing work!
