Mathematics

Today I have set some work on your Mymaths account around 2D shape that we learnt last week and this weeks focus of 3D shapes. Not everyone has signed into their Mymaths

English - Who's afraid of the BIG BAD Wolf?

Why in stories and traditional tales is the Wolf usually a sneaky character?  Today you are going to think of some words to describe the Wolf from our story, Little Red. This follows on from your work yesterday when you had to find some words you thought the author chose to tell a really good story.

Below is an outline of a wolf. On the inside of the outline can you think of words and phases that describe the Wolf's character.  Look back through the story on Monday or your work from yesterday to find some words to describe this character. Think of your own ideas too e.g. sneaky, clever, cunning, mysterious.

Around the outside of the outline you should write words and phrases that describe the appearance (what the wolf looks like) of the Wolf. E.g. piercing green eyes, pointy ears, long bushy tail.  We have used this technique before when looking at other story characters.

Below I have found pictures of how wolves have been shown in well known stories.

Topic/Theme - Science - Living things and their habitats

In our last online science lesson we thought about things that are alive, once alive and never been alive. Can you think of an object that is alive? How about something that has never been alive? What about something that was once alive? If you completed this task before Easter have a look back in your book.

Below is a link to our Year 2 Knowledge organiser for this area of science. It tells us everything we need to learn in this area of Science in Year 2.

## Year 2 Knowledge Organiser - Living things and their habitats

When we were last together at school we began to think about the term 'habitat' - the natural home or environment of a plant or animal. Today we are going to think about the term 'microhabitat'.  The word 'micro' means very small so microhabitat means a very small habitat.  See if you can find the term microhabitat on your science knowledge organiser above.

Below there are some microhabitats that you might find around your garden. Can you think of anymore?

Today I would like you to map a make of your garden showing as many different microhabitats as you can. Remember a microhabitat can be a pile of leaves, under a hedge even in a patch of soil.  You might have some larger habitats in your garden too like a pond!

To make your map you can use the mapping paper below or any paper you have.

1. First sketch the rough shape of your garden - remember what I always say when we are drawing - use all of the space on the paper!
3. Place in any other items you might have in your garden e.g. fence, shed, trampoline.
4. Go out and look in your garden. What microhabitats can you find? Where are they?
5. Draw and label the microhabitats onto your map.

When you are out and about today you can have a look at which animals you find in the habitats. Later this term we will look at identifying the animals that you might see.

If you don't have a garden or outdoor space. I would like you to design your own garden with some microhabitats included.
