CLASS 2, YOU ARE AMAZING!!
For Literacy, children are expected to complete the work from Hamilton Trust which is uploaded every week. We would also like you to use the Letters and Sounds Phonics lessons on Youtube as these follow the scheme we use in school. You can always dip into BBC Bitesize for something different sometimes too! Remember, you can always have a change from Hamilton and complete your own writing tasks such as a letter to a friend, instructions for something you have learnt/played during lockdown or even your very own creative story!
We would like you to keep reading books regularly on Bug Club. These follow our school reading scheme and we can add more books whenever you need them. Don't forget Oxford Owl has some brilliant online books too.
For Maths, please use the White Rose resources which are uploaded to the website weekly. This is the scheme we also use at school. Remember there are lots of fun maths games on Manga High, which is updated every week as well as times tables practice if you fancy it!
Topic work and project ideas are listed at the bottom of the page. Don't forget you can also do lots of cooking, gardening, art, music, nature walks and so many other fun things are part of your afternoon topic time too. See below some extra bits you might like to try this week...

Last week was School Diversity Week and this week it is Children’s Art Week so we thought we would celebrate the two together. Your topic work is based on diversity, similarities and differences. Remember it is these differences that make us all so special! As well as your self-portrait art work it would be amazing if you could create your own piece of art work to show what diversity means to you or what you have found out this week. We have added some play dough mats and a recipe for non-cook play dough that you could make at home! You could also make a ‘guess who’ style game and add your own characters – make sure they are all different so the game isn’t too easy. There is a template to write a poem on what makes you special and one to compare yourself to one of your friends, we don’t always like the same things and that is okay! We have also added a link to the song ‘I Have a Song to Sing’ which you might remember from our assemblies.
Parents - We know that talking to your children about these subjects can sometimes be difficult so we have also added a link below to the Unicef website where there is some great advice for parents on how to talk about diversity and racism.
