WORKING FROM HOME

Hello Everyone

It was so good to see you all on your last day in Year 2, even if I could only see you on my phone!  You all looked like you were having a great time!

I thought you might like to see this AMAZING video that Emil made.  He has worked very hard to make his information about Grace Darling so interesting.  Well done Emil!

I am looking forward to seeing you all in September.  

Have a great holiday

From Mrs Parker:)

 

 

ELLA'S LIGHTHOUSE STORY

Ella has written this very exciting story.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.

WORKING FROM HOME - SUMMER 2 - THE LAST 2 WEEKS!

Hello Apple Class

Next week my laptop has to go back to school to be updated so I am going to put work for the next 2 weeks on today.  When my laptop comes back I will add a bit more.

We are going to carry on with our theme of Lighthouses in our English work, but I have put in some extra ideas of things that you could do outside as we come towards the end of term.

I am so very proud of what you have achieved during Lockdown and cannot wait to see you all in September (even though you will be in Year 3!)

Remember to keep sending me photographs of your work.  It will give me a challenge as I will have to try and do it via my phone!

Have a great week everyone :)

In school they have been singing 'MY LIGHTHOUSE' and Mrs PH told me that there was a version with actions.  Here we go...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LET'S GET MATHEMATICAL

This week I have put lots of different problems for you to think about.  Remember that you have to look at each problem and decide on the best method to solve it.  If a method doesn't work - think again and find a new way. 

REMEMBER WHAT I ALWAYS SAY - Mistakes are the way in which we learn!

NOT QUITE.... FOREST SCHOOL!

I hope you all really enjoy getting together for your picnics with Mrs Searle - I bet it will be great to see everyone again!

Take care from Mrs Parker :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

WORKING FROM HOME - SUMMER TERM 2 - 29.06.20

Hello Everyone!

It was BRILLIANT to see so many of you at our ZOOM meetings last week and so we will have another go with a different game!  Make sure you check when it is your day!

I have really enjoyed reading all the FANTASTIC poems that you have written and the TOTALLY DISGUSTING recipes.  Mr Parker was very keen to make Ella's Oatie Cookies until he realised they had salt and chilli powder in them!!!

This week we are going to keep thinking about lighthouses using an animated film to help us.  It looks very dark - but that's because lighthouses only need to work in the dark (or the fog)!

Remember to keep sending me pictures of your work!

I remembered this song which we often have at Worship Time, and I thought it might make a good start to your day.

 

 

Now let's start some English!

 

 


Last week we started to check our spellings.  Keep practising those that you are finding tricky to remember.  Remember that practising does not mean BORING!  You can practise spellings in lots of different ways.  Here are some ideas - but I am sure you can use your imaginations and find lots of new ways of your own.

 

If you know all these spellings - you could practise adding suffixes onto the ends of words such as ly to turn adjectives into adverbs or er/est in adjectives.  REMEMBER THE RULES we learnt this year - you cannot just add these suffixes onto some words - you have to WATCH OUT!

Let's get creative and make SEAGULLS in lots of different ways!

Let's get HEART SMART!

Let's make some MOVING PICTURES!

This week in MATHEMATICS we will be exploring MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION as well as MONEY.

 

 

BITESIZE MATHS - can give you some ideas on how to use the number line. 

Here is the link you need: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zqbg87h/articles/zyp7b82 (or GOOGLE: BITESIZE - KS1 DIVISION - NUMBER LINES.

 

 

Have a great week.  I am really looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Mrs Parker :)

 

 

 

WORKING FROM HOME - SUMMER TERM 2 - WEEK FOUR - 22.06.20

Hello Everyone!

Thank you to everyone who is e-mailing me what they have been doing at home.  The first thing I do in the morning is to look at my e-mails and every time there is a message I get VERY excited!

This week we are continuing to use the book 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch' by Rhonda and David Armitage as the basis of all our work.

This video animation was made by children in a Special School to tell the story of Mr Grinling and the naughty seagulls who ate his lunch!

 

 

 


 

Here are some ideas for practising spellings.  What way can you find?

 

 

 

Let's get HEART SMART!

 

Time to make some music!

I hope you are able to join us on ZOOM because I can't wait to see you again!

Love from Mrs Parker :)

WORKING FROM HOME - SUMMER TERM 2 - WEEK THREE - 15.06.20

Hello Everyone!

This week we are going to start a new book called 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch' by Ronda and David Armitage.  I hope you enjoy the story and all the fun activities to go with it.  Remember to keep sending me pictures of your work - I love getting your e-mails.

 

 

Let's get creative...

Now for our English...

The Pirates are particularly interested in our country.  I wonder why?

Let's get Mathematical!

We need to be HEART SMART!

I hope you all have a good week.

Love from Mrs Parker :)

WORKING FROM HOME - SUMMER TERM 2 - WEEK TWO - 08.06.20

Hello Everyone!

It has been great to chat to some of you and I am so glad you are enjoying the PIRATE work we are doing.  This week there are lots more Pirate Challenges - so put on your pirate outfits (shorts and T-shirts work well) and let's begin...

How about getting creative?  I love it when you come up with your own ideas or put a 'twist' on an idea that you have seen.  Don't forget to keep sending me in your work as it helps others to MAGPIE ideas.  (FOR THE GROWN-UPS: We MAGPIE ideas that are good in school because Magpie's love shiny things.  We use the best bits to help us improve our own work!

GEOGRAPHY is a subject that is EXTREMELY useful for Pirates.  It's important to know where you are going in your Pirate Ship!!!

Pirates can have a few 'issues'.  They can be stubborn and don't like to think they are wrong or change their minds.  This can sometimes lead to a few problems, so..... Let's get Heart Smart!

The Pirates have got lots of Pirate Loot - but it is important to SHARE.  Pirates can get very angry if their treasure is not shared EQUALLY - so let's go back and use FRACTIONS to help us!

I LOVE SEEING YOUR WORK - SO PLEASE, PLEASE, PIRATE PLEASE SEND ME LOTS OF PHOTOGRAPHS (remember to take the pictures in Landscape so they are the right way round to put on the website!)

Have a great week!

Love from Mrs Parker :)

 

WORKING FROM HOME - SUMMER TERM 2 - WEEK ONE - 01.06.20

Welcome back after our holiday break.  I hope you all had a lovely week in the sunshine!

Do you remember making all those story ideas and puppets to help act them out the week before the holiday?  This week we are going to use that work to help us write a story.  Don't worry if you didn't make a plan - you can watch the video of the adventures of a boy called Michael - and that might give you a few ideas!

 

 

 

Now it's time to GET CREATIVE!

 

 

 

If you want to be a pirate, learning how to read and make maps is VERY IMPORTANT - so let's get training!

Of course, pirates LOVE treasure, so it's essential training to learn about MONEY!

Now let's get HEART SMART!

Have a good week everyone and don't forget to keep sending me all your pictures.

Love from Mrs Parker :)
