Good morning 2S

Today I have added a new folder to our 2S page and it's rather a special one as it is for pictures and videos that you have sent me. I'm sure that you will like seeing each other's work and other things that you have been doing.

Please email me any photographs or videos that you would like to have included in this folder. I'd love to see your rockets and to read your letters to Bob. My email address is:

adele.stansfield@kirkleeseducation.uk

 

Have you done your Joe Wicks workout this morning? 

Maybe you could try yoga, Supermovers or some of the gymnastics ideas in the 'Other activities' link.

 

Below is today's work but I'd also like to wish you a safe and happy weekend. I would also like to send a special message to all our families and children who are celebrating the month of Ramadan. I hope you all have a happy, peaceful, safe and blessed month.

Ramadan Mubarak to you all!

Lots of love from

Mrs S x

Here’s my description from yesterday:

The Moon is a natural satellite that is 4.5 billion years old. It orbits the Earth and also rotates every 27 days. It is grey and white in colour. If you were on the Moon, you would not be able to hear any sound because there is no air.

 

Edit your description.

Check for CL and FS and make sure that every sentence makes sense. Also check your spelling – you can use Google.

 

Here’s the next video clip to watch so you can answer a few more questions:

 

Don't forget to use the information that you have learnt from today's video to add to your description about the Moon. Don't start again, just add to yesterday's writing. 

Maths

As always start with a page from the Falshbacks - saved in the Maths folder. You should be on Week 3 Day 5 today. Press the play button to run the PowerPoint and then click to check that you have got the answers correct.

 

How are you doing with telling the time? If you managed to get hold of a clock, have you been setting the times by moving the hands? This really helps us learn how the little hand moves during the hour. It's important to remember that at half past, the little hand always points exactly half-way between two numbers.

 

Today, I've got some challenges for you to do which will see how well you understand time. But first, he's a PowerPoint presentation which links analogue and digital time for o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.

This is page 6 in your Home Learning Pack and will test if you have understood the PowerPoint. Draw the hands really carefully.

These are the Problem and Reasoning pages (Page 4 and 5 in your Home Learning Pack):

Finally, here's today's Problems of the Day:

Reading

There are 3 different levels on today's Reading Comprehension about Tim Peake's Diary: easy, middle and tricky. the answers are all included, too. You can choose one or try two or three different levels.

Would you like to be an astronaut? Why or why not?
Topic

Use this PowerPoint to collect facts about each of the planets:

Here's some more advanced information about the planets it you would like a challenge.

If there isn't enough room on this sheet for everything that you have found out about the planets, then you might want to make a booklet instead with a page for each planet.

Here's a lovely story about Ramadan for you to share with your family:

Here's the Ramadan booklet once again. How many activities have you completed?
