Hello Class Two!
I hope you have had a good week full of exploring, learning and fun.
I have heard mixed reviews about which resource they find useful for their maths, Whiterose or BBC Home Learning. School has subscribed to Whiterose to receive the Whiterose resources. I am giving you the choice of which suits you better to learn.
Lesson 1 – Add and subtract 2-digit and 3-digit numbers – not crossing 10 or 100 2019 Lesson 2 – Add 2-digit and 3-digit numbers – crossing 10 or 100 2019 Lesson 3 – Subtract 2-digit numbers from 3-digit numbers – crossing 10 or 100 2019 Lesson 4 – Add two 3-digit numbers – not crossing 10 or 100 2019
For English this week I would like you to have a go at the following tasks;
For your final task, I would like you to pick one of your favourite lessons from this week to create a piece of writing using the learning objective from the lesson.
For example, using the there, their or they’re lesson, you may want to write a story, a poem or diary entry using all of the different words. You may want to write a powerful poem using lots of similes and metaphors, or create a fact and opinion page all about your favourite animal/place/car.
What do humans need to stay healthy?
Why don’t you plan a healthy meal for dinner and help your mum or dad cook it?
For your RE lesson this week, I would like you to find out (if you don’t know already) who Charles Darwin is. Can you find out as much as you can about him? Where did he go to school? Where did he live? Is he alive now? What did he become well known for?
This information will help you in the next part of our RE lesson.
Lots of you have told me about the brilliant walks you have been on in your emails and phone calls. That is great!
If you want an more inspiration for PE, here are some links to help;
Have a lovely week!
All the best,

Hello Class Two!
I am missing you all lots and hope for you to be able to contact me this week, using my email email@example.com. I would love to hear what you have been up to.
For your maths continue to use BBC BITESIZE HOME LEARNING. Select the year group you would like to have a go at and have a go at the maths lesson each day.
This week I would like you to:
- Write a letter to someone from Class Two. If you know their address then you can send it to them or wait and give it to them at school. You could even take a picture of it and send it to me and I can try to get it to them. Who knows, maybe they will write back!
2. Write a haiku poem
Here is a video all about what a haiku poem is. Watch the video to 2:00 to learn about how to create a haiku poem and then get going. Haikus are usually about nature, so get outside and start writing, following the 5, 7, 5 syllable rule.
Here is the link for the video
3. Reading Comprehension
On top for your 20 minute daily reading, I would like you to have a go at this reading comprehension task. Pick a task which suits your reading ability – they are differentiated (look for the stars) The more stars, the more complex the reading.
