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.


Street detectives

Find out about your local area. Are there houses, shops or even a police station. Write facts about where you live remembering to include sub headings. Make these facts interesting and then you could put the information into a leaflet and create an interesting front cover to get people to want to read yours.



Look at the graffiti images on the remote learning tab for ‘Topic Learning’ and create your own name in this style using a variety of colours to make it stand out. If you would prefer to use coloured paper and make it a collage you can do this too.



Take part in cooking activities at home. Could you design and create your own secret recipe that would help a detective to complete his work.



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



Using the websites provided on the remote learning tab can you find any facts about what Boston used to be like in the past. You could also chose to research a country and write about what it used to be like as well. You might want to use sub headings to help the reader find the information they want.


Science: Living things

Our Science topic is currently ‘Living things.’ Can you describe what creatures and animals you can find in your garden? You could draw the different animals, birds or mini beasts you find and describe what they look like in full sentences.


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?



Think about rules that you have at home or at school. What rules do you think are important to follow?

Could you create a poster with different rules that we should follow.
