Hello Class Two!
Here is your last post of the summer term for home learning. What a journey it has been! I wish you all the best for a lovely summer of fun, rest and excitement. This will be my last post as Miss Preece before I return as Mrs Clinton in September.
Enjoy your last week of home learning!
Year 2 Week 12
Year 3 Week 12
Year 4 Week 12
Pick the text that is most appropriate for your child’s reading level. The texts are differentiated also within the links.
Log on to Spag.com where some spag tests will be waiting for you – have a go at one and see how you get on.
Over this next week and over the holidays I would like you to really make sure you are spellings these words correctly before you return to school in September. Are you using the correct spelling when writing? What might help you remember how to spell them? Have a look in your homework book where you can find ideas of how to learn to spell these words.
Start with high frequency words to know Year 2, 3 and 4 and work on these until you are 100% sure you are applying them to your writing. If you are sure, move on to the next link, where you can pick the most important ones you think you will need to learn ready for next year.
Correct the spelling mistakes – select appropriately to suit your child’s ability
Get outside science
Rain, Rain, Don’t Go Away Rain Gauge
- 2 litre plastic bottle
- Duct tape
- Sharpie Marker
- Empty and wash out the 2 litre bottle so it’s nice and clean.
- Take the scissors and cut off the spout top right where the taper or curve begins.
- Fill bottom of the bottle with 1/2 inch of sand. This will keep the bottle from falling over on those windy days.
- Pour in just enough water so you can see the water level above the sand. Yes, your sand will be wet! This is called your saturation point.
- Use the Sharpie Marker to draw a line at the saturation point above the sand. Next to the line write “starting point”.
- Line the ruler up (from the starting/saturation point) and draw a line for every inch up to the top of the bottle.
- Take the top “cut off” spout portion of the bottle and flip it upside down. Insert it into the bottle and use some duct tape to secure it. This part will help catch and collect the rainfall by funnelling into your bottle.
- Now it’s time to find a good place for your rain gauge outside and record your rain data.
How it Works:
The rain gauge collects water. When the water drips or pours into your rain gauge you can accurately measure how much rainfall has occurred.
- Make multiple rain gauges. Place one in an open area outside, one underneath a tree, and one by edge of your roof. Are you getting different measurements of rainfall? If so, why do you think that is? And which one do you think is the most accurate reading?
- Add 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 inch spots onto your rain gauge so you get a more specific and accurate reading.
PSHE – Back to school
Complete this Elsa task, ‘great to meet you’ and bring it back to school in September for us teachers to see how you have changed, how you have grown and if your interests have remained or changed.
Check out Mrs Water’s sister doing a Pilates lesson for you all. Enjoy being an explorer in the jungle!
Have a great summer everyone!
Looking forward to seeing you all in the autumn!
