Good morning everybody and welcome to the final week of learning. School will be finishing for most children on Thursday before you break up for the summer holiday. When you return in September you will be in a new year group which is another change that you will experience. Throughout this week, we would like you to reflect on how you feel about this change.
To begin with, we would like you to work on creating leaflets that give important information to the children who will be coming into year 1 in September. Today you will start your leaflet which you will continue to work on throughout the week so keep it in a safe place.
One of the things you will learn in Year 2 for maths is your 2,5 and 10 times tables. To help you get ready for this, you will be practicing using arrays in today's maths lesson. Follow the link within the PowerPoint to access the video for the session and complete the worksheet below.
You will be practising forming lowercase letter e which is the first of the 'curly' letters for handwriting this week. From 9.30am onwards, click on the link to practise your phonics and spellings. Remember to choose the same set spellings video as the set of phonics you complete.
Log on to Purple Mash for today's reading comprehension task.
With an adult, read the story about the 'Cautious Caterpillar' and discuss what you think the main idea is behind the story. What do you think 'cautious' means? Why was the caterpillar described as being cautious? How do you think it links to change?
Fun in the sun!
Monday 6th July 2020
Good morning and welcome to a new week of learning!
We would like you to think about all of the different ways we can have fun in the sun. This week's learning activities will help you to do this.
For English, you will be learning about being safe in the sun and throughout the week will be creating a leaflet. For today's session, we would like you to design a front cover for your leaflet. Keep your leaflet so that you can add to it throughout the week.
One of the things you might do, whilst you are having fun in the sun, is spend money on buying different things. So for your maths session throughout the week you will be learning about money. Follow the PowerPoint to complete the task. For the worksheet you can complete it on screen, print it or copy it by hand.
Continuing with the 'down' letters, in your handwriting session you will practise forming letter n. Within the PowerPoint you will also find the link to your daily phonics session which you can access from 9.30am onwards.
Log on to Purple Mash to complete your reading task for today.
To get into the spirit of summer, we would first like you to design and make your own bunting. You can copy the template or print it. Next, we would like you to design your very own delicious ice-cream. Think about the flavour of the ice-cream you would have, the toppings and the shape of the cone. Later, if you have lego or any construction toys at home, have a go at creating your own funfair ride.
One of the ways that people enjoy the summer is by travelling to different countries around the world. When they travel, they get to see cultures and traditions that are different to their own. You get to experience a new story each day that is from a different part of the world. Watch and listen to today's story by clicking on the link on the slide for Monday from the PowerPoint.
Have fun and enjoy learning!

Good morning, everyone! We hope you have had a super weekend.
This week, in English you will be working on the story 'Beegu' by Alexis Deacon. To start with you need to listen to the story by following the link. Watch the video to 47 seconds only as this is what you will be working on for this session. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-8oLcy1Eow&app=desktop
Once you have done this, Follow the questions on the PowerPoint. Your task is to write what you think Beegu is saying by following the success criteria.
For maths today you will be working on counting in twos. Follow the link within the PowerPoint and remember to pause the video when you need to. You will also need the worksheet which you can print or copy.
You have a new book to work through for your reading comprehension task on Purple Mash.
We would like you to practise forming the next 'down' letter in the sequence which is letter h. On the handwriting PowerPoint you will find the phrase that you could say when forming the letter. You will also find the link for your phonics and spelling session. Remember to choose the same set of spellings as the phonics set you choose.
Beegu needs to get home. Can you design a rocket for her to use to get back? Follow the instructions on the PowerPoint to design your rocket first. You will need a bottle and some craft materials or use what you can find at home. It make take a some time for your rocket to dry so you might have to decorate on another day.
After this, we would like you to draw and name Beegu's mum and dad. We want you to think of the special friends that you have learnt in your phonics sessions and use them to come up with a name for Beegu's mum and dad.
Remember you can share your work on our class blog.
Have fun and enjoy!

Good morning everyone. Welcome to a new week of fun learning. This week is Virtual Sports Week at Godwin Primary. We would like you to take part in the daily activities and keep track of your scores after each activity. It would be great if your adults join in as well. If you can, take some photos and email them to the schools. Details and videos of the daily tasks can be found here: https://www.godwinprimary.co.uk/virtual-sports-week/
This week in English you will be working on writing a letter. For your first session, you will be looking at why we post messages and the important features that a letter should have. You will need some paper, a pencil and a pair of scissors before you begin.
In your maths lesson you will learn a new way to solve addition calculations by making 10. Before you start have a copy of the worksheet, some paper, a pencil and 2 sets of coloured counters. Have a look around at what you have at home that you could use as counters or make your own by drawing and colouring them.
Download the handwriting and phonics PowerPoint to practise forming letter t. Remember to choose the correct set of sounds for your phonics spelling sessions. You can watch the phonics and spelling sessions from 9.30am onwards on Monday to Friday.
On Purple Mash, you will find your reading comprehension activities for today.
Both D.T. and art are based on our theme 'superheroes'. In D.T. you will be designing and making a shield for your very own superhero. We want you to be as creative as possible by using different materials that you have at home. Through the art PowerPoint, you will learn to draw a range of superheroes by following the link on each slide. By the end of the week, you should have drawn 4 or more characters. Cut these characters out to make them into puppets by sticking a lolly stick or some strong card on the back of each one. You will then work on creating a short scene using the storyboard template. Once you have done this, you can act out and record the scene using your puppets. This could be done on a phone, Ipad or an app like 'Puppet Pals' (available free on Apple and Android phones).
We look forward to seeing any learning that you want to share on our class blog and hope you have an enjoyable day.

Hello everyone! Welcome to our second week of learning, we hope you have had an enjoyable weekend in the sun.
Throughout this week, we would like you to become poets. You will be writing your very own poem based on the colours of the rainbow and what each colour represents for you. To begin, you will listen to one poem and read another. After learning about what a poem is, you will write 2 lines of your poem based on red and orange things. Try to think of things that make you feel positive. If you have a printer at home you can print the 'Rainbow Template' or you or an adult can draw one like the template.
Watch the video 'Monday Maths: Starter' below. Mrs Peita-Read takes you through making your own set of number cards and some activities to get your brain warmed-up for your maths lesson. Today, you will begin to look at number bonds and the idea of the 'part-whole relationship'. You will need a pencil, some paper and a copy of the worksheet 'Find and make number bonds'. If you do not have a printer at home you can make your own worksheet by copying the questions from the worksheet.
Open up the PowerPoint for your daily phonics lesson. With an adult choose either the set 1, 2 or 3 speed sounds lesson. Afterwards, choose the spelling video for the same set. Then, follow the PowerPoint to practise writing the letter 'd'. Whilst you write it, you could say aloud 'around the dinosaur's bottom, up his tall neck and down to his toes'.
In art, we want you to think about how we are still part of our school community even though we are not in our normal routine. We want you to create a display based on the colours of a rainbow and send virtual hugs, high-fives and smiles (all things we can do from a distance). You can put your display up somewhere in your houses like in the window for people to see.
Last Thursday, you reflected on how change can be tricky and how somethings stay the same whilst others look different once we go through a change. When you download 'HUK Back 2 School - Monday' it will allow you to think about those things that you have been missing and also those that you are looking forward to which give you hope and make you feel good.
Don't forget to also complete the reading activity on Purple Mash and to upload pictures (if you want) to our class blog.

You will be able to keep these happy memories safe and can look at them any time you are feeling sad.
