Monday 31st March
Have you seen our special assembly filmed last week? If not visit the 'Our Faith and Vision' page under the 'Key Information' page and watch all the staff take part in Open The Book. Can you spot me? I am playing one of Jesus's disciples.
What was the special name given to this final meal?
What was the name of the man who betrayed Jesus?
What food did Jesus share during the meal? What did the food and drink represent?
This week we are going to practise telling the time on an analogue clock (a clock with moving hands). In Year 2 we need to be able to tell the time to the o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to times. Some of us will progress further and be able to tell the time to the nearest 5 mins. E.g. 20 minutes past 5 or 10 minutes to 12.
If you have a toy clock at home you may find it useful this week. If you don't have one, make your own. Draw around a plate and label the hours around the clock starting with 12 at the top. Cut out two strips of paper to be the hands of your clock. Remember you will need a short hand (the hour hand) and a long hand (the minutes hand).
Work your way through the powerpoint above. Make sure that you play the powerpoint as a slide show or you will see the answers before you are ready! Then complete the worksheet below. If don't have a printer then read the times from the screen and record them in your book you might like to draw a clock to match.
Key words today: It is really important that you spell these words correctly.
one, two. three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven and twelve.
I hope you enjoyed the English tasks last week, we had some great list poems that have been put in our amazing work gallery!
Today, take a look at the puzzling picture below and answer the questions. You will be using your inference skills to answer the questions which is a very important English skill. Please make sure you answer each question with a full sentence and remember capital letters and full stops!
This week would have been 'Shakespeare Week' at school because next month (April) is his birthday month. Shakespeare is considered a famous and significant person from the past. He is known all around the world and especially in Warwickshire.
Can you find out why? What facts can you find out about this man this afternoon?
You might use the internet, any books you have at home or even ask some adults who might be able to help you. Imagine this is a piece of work like our home learning activities. It's up to you how you present the information you find. More activities will be set about Shakespeare this week too.
