Wednesday 20th May

Good Morning Year 2

Challenge:  Listen to the audio of me reading the morning message.  Can you read along as I speak?

Miss Writer's Morning Message

Today is Wednesday 20th May, 2020. I hope you had a lovely day yesterday.  Did you have a look at Miss Hume's music lessons?  They are really fun. 

 

Yesterday afternoon, I took a walk around the lake near my house and saw some little ducklings.  I'm not sure what they were but most definitely either coots or moorhens.  I always confuse them but one had a red blob and the other a white blob on their head.  I'll take a picture for you next time.

 

Next week is the half term holiday and I won't be setting you daily activities so today I have set you a research project in science.  You are going to be researching, planning and writing your own fact file on trees.  You could write this in a report style - like we did with the wolf report - OR, you could make a little information book by folding up an A4 piece of paper and have a cover page, index, page numbers.  That could be really fun.   

 

 

Fact of the Day!

Human teeth are as strong as shark teeth! 

 

 

 

Start the day at 9am with PE with JOE

 

 

 

 

Morning Prayer

Father in heaven You love me. 

You are with me night and day.

I want to love You always,

In all I do and say.

I'll try to please You Father.

Bless me through the day.

Amen

Activity 4 - Science

Over the next week, you are going to plan and write a non-chronological report on trees.  We are going to put together all of the information we have learnt into one information text.  Do you remember the report we planned and wrote on wolves?  The tree report will be written in just the same way.

 

This project will take you all of the half term so take your time.
