School Closure Information and Suggested Activities
Just a message to say that we wish you all the best and hope that you stay safe and well during this difficult time.
I will regularly be in touch via Dojo and I am available through Dojo message to provide any advice or support so please feel free to message me.
I am looking forward to seeing all of the amazing learning that you will be doing at home - alongside having lots of fun!
Below, I have uploaded a suggested weekly timetable with examples of how to fill your day.
Each week I will upload a literacy, numeracy and Read Write Inc. (phonics) activity to Dojo and the school website for you to complete throughout the week if you choose to. I will also upload daily suggested activities on Dojo too as well as the work packs that we have sent home .
Please keep up with the fantastic reading that you have been doing at home - remember, I have allocated additional books for you to read on Bug Club too!

This week in numeracy we would be recapping and revisiting 2D and 3D shapes. F2 children know that 2D shapes are 'flat' and 3D shapes are 'fat'. I have attached a PowerPoint showing 3D shapes as everyday objects to look at throughout the week. Can you go on a shape hunt to find them? If you find everyday objects that are 3D shapes can you put them all in a bag and then describe the shape that you pull out? What shape are its faces? How many faces does it have? Are its faces flat or curved - do they slide or roll? Children have completed this activity before so it should not be new to them .
Friday 8th May marks the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, which was the day towards the end of WW2 when fighting against Germany came to an end in Europe. For this weeks literacy task I have attached a simple PowerPoint explaining VE Day to share with your child. This can be shared on a phone/tablet or laptop. There is also a template page for your child to answer the question 'Why is 8th May an important day?'. Additional to this there is a 'design a medal' template, Union Jack bunting to colour and a colouring page. If you have access to a printer you could print these, however, they are only there to give inspiration and you can use them to design your own on plain paper.

WC 27/4/20 - Weekly numeracy challenge
Last week we recapped counting 1-20, this week we extend it further by counting all the way to 100!
In class we would do this with actions to keep us focused. For example, 1-10 we may tap our nose once for every number said, 11-20 we may tap our knees once for every number said, 21-30 we could do one jump for every number said etc. The Big Numbers Song (Link at the bottom of this page) is also a fantastic way to count to 100 and beyond.
WC 20/4/20 Suggested home learning activities
This week in F2 we would be starting our new farming topic called 'Do Cows Drink Milk?'
which would have involved a farm visit, finding out facts about farm animals, how to care for animals, where food comes from and life on a farm.
I have attached a knowledge organiser which gives an overview of what we would have covered. This is just for your information - obviously some of it is not relevant due to the school closure- but if you look at the 'key vocabulary' and 'key facts' section it may give you something to talk to your child about if they are interested in life on the farm .
