Hello Kandinksy – this week I thought that it would be nice to have a week of work learning all about penguins. I caught the end of a David Attenborough documentary all about penguins and it reminded me how much I love them and also how funny they can be!
I hope that you enjoy your learning this week.
Times Tables and Number Fluency
Please allow your child time to access Numbots and TTrockstars. Their log in details for this can be found in the cover of their school diaries. Please contact the school office should you require this information.
Weekly Maths Lessons
Here are resources for this week's Maths lessons which focus on length.
Please follow the following link:

There are also two fun Maths colouring sheets for you to have a go at.
Please continue to work on the Year 2 High Frequency and Common Exception Words. Ask your child about the methods we use in school to help them to learn spellings: boxing up, adding a picture, writing in a sentence etc.
Please continue to listen to your child read their school reading book or any other books that you may have at home. You can also use the Oxford Owl website to find books to read in the Free eBook Library section.
Newsround has a good variety of news articles that the children enjoy reading, but please check their suitability first.

This weeks project - Penguins!
Begin by reading the e-book 'The Runaway Iceberg'

Here's a link to the homepage where you can choose the episodes you'd like to watch:
Ask your child to read the extract of text and answer the questions on their own. Then ask them to read the text out loud and discuss the answers that they have given. Encourage them to go back to the text to find and copy the answers where possible rather than guessing or using memory.
Here are a couple for you to try:
Remember to send us any photos of your artwork on Dojo!
