We have carefully selected learning at home for your child during this uncertain time. We greatly appreciate your continued support as we work together to provide learning at home.

We understand that not everyone will have the facilities to print sheets at home but please don't worry about this. If printing is not possible for you, children can view sheets online and then write anything that they may need to in their home learning workbooks.

If you have some lolly sticks (or straws or pens that are the same length as each other), they will be useful in trying out the last task on the video.

If you need help remembering what the different shapes are called for questions 1 and 4, go back to 5:30 on the video to see all of the names.

Tuesday - count faces, edges and vertices on 3D shapes

The video suggests making some 3D shapes by using straws and marshmallows. Other options include cocktail sticks or dry spaghetti for the edges and grapes or jelly sweets for the vertices. Construction kits such as K’nex could also be useful.

You can have fun exploring 3D shapes by unfolding any cardboard boxes that you have at home (ask first!). After the lesson, you might want to try some shape printing with different 3D shapes too.

This word mat will help you remember and write the names of the different 3D shapes.

Previous Maths Home Learning

Maths Home Learning

We are now using some fantastic resources from the White Rose Maths Hub for our home learning. We have chosen these because they really closely match the way we teach maths at St Peter's.

  • Each lesson has a short video to watch with clear modelling and explanations.
  • We appreciate that printing can be a challenge, so you can just write the answers in your exercise book.
  • Questions with a thought bubble next to them are like our 'star challenges' so they may be more challenging.
  • The answers are included for you to check once you've completed the task or if you are getting stuck.

We will carry on posting a different challenge from Nrich each week and you can also go to https://nrich.maths.org/14600 if you want even more maths!

 

From the week beginning 4th May onwards, we are going to be working in line with the White Rose terms dates. This is because White Rose has linked up with BBC Bitesize so there will be more games and activities offered each day that match the main lesson.

These are additional activities to support this week’s learning.

History home learning

 

Following our trip to the SS Great Britain, we would like children to have the opportunity to continue their study of Brunel. The children have already learnt lots about this historical figure and are very excited by the topic! We would like children to follow their interests in creating a project on Brunel and we have made some suggestions for what this might be in the document attached below. Throughout the project, encourage children to be considering their knowledge in relation to the following questions:

  • Who was Brunel and when did he live?
  • How did Brunel build the Thames Tunnel?
  • Why was the SS Great Britain so important?
  • Why was the Great Western Railway a good idea?
  • Which bridges did Brunel design and build?

History home learning

This week, we would like you to think about all of the significant people that we have studied in Year 2 history and to pick your favourite history hero! You will find lots more information about this task in the document below! This is a two week project so please take your time in refreshing your memory on your chosen history hero before you design and make your poster.

Primary and secondary sources of evidence
 

We are concluding our current history sequence this week so please follow the link to find your final task.  

 

If you would like some support in thinking of primary and secondary sources of evidence, then this poster may help you.

Geography home learning

 

This year in geography we have been learning about the countries of the UK and their capital cities and in Year 1 the children explored the 7 continents and the 5 oceans of the world. We would like children to retrieve and deepen this learning over the next few weeks by engaging in the activities attached below. By the end of the week, children should be confident in answering the questions below.

  1. What are the countries that make the UK?
  2. What are the capital cities of the countries of the UK?
  3. What are the 7 continents of the world?
  4. What are the 5 oceans in the world?

Excellence in our service with others home learning

 

One of our Year 2 values is compassion. Please make a card, draw a picture or write a postcard for a member of your family or a friend and either post it or send it via technology to cheer them up.
