Learning Project - To be completed throughout the week

Here is an overview of tasks I’d like the Year 2 children to be completing at home over the next 6 weeks.

Great Fire of London

Find out about the ‘Great Fire of London’. Can you find any interesting facts out about what happened or how it started? Can you find out what children would do instead of going to school in this era? You could even design a picture showing what London would have looked like during the fire.



Look at the picture inside the remote learning tab on the website. Can you recreate this picture using paints or crayons. You might even want to use felt tips like when we created our dotty picture in the style of George Seurat.



Take part in cooking activities at home. Could you design and create your own London bakery that started the fire. Inside the bakery you might need to put an oven and some bread.



Everyday could you do some exercise. You could join in with Joe Wicks 30 minutes exercise on youtube.



Find out about who Samuel Pepys was. Why was he important during the time of the fire? What did he do? What happened to his wine and cheese? You could research this using books or researching on the internet. Could you write a fact file on who he was and what he did. You could also write a report on what happened when the fire started using time conjunctions to begin each sentence.


Science: Materials

Our Science topic is currently ‘Materials.’ Can you describe what different objects around the house are made of (e.g. wood, metal or plastic). Then describe why they are made of these materials (e.g. why is the table made out of wood and not paper). Then describe what makes a solid solid and what makes a liquid liquid.


Can you use the emojis to log into Wonde? Can you use the BeeBot app to direct the Beebot where to go? Have you use times table rock stars to practise your times tables?



Read the attached Bible story where Jesus returns to his disciples. Imagine you were a disciple and write about how you would feel if you had seen Jesus reappear after you thought he had died.
