Welcome to 2B

Adults who work here:

Welcome to our class page. Here you will get a taste of what is happening in our classroom each half term. Use the information shared to discuss with your child what learning has taken place. 

Working with children at home

Below you will find work for your children to do at home each week. Please read through the outline for the tasks each week. At the bottom of the page there will be documents for you to download to go with the tasks set, they are labelled with the date for each week. Some weeks there will also be work on the VLE (virtual learning environment) to complete. If you have any questions about the work set or how to find your children's login details please email year2@almapark.manchester.sch.uk and a member of staff will get back to you as soon as possible.

All of the work that has been set since the children have been working at home can be found in our Google Drive folder. Please click here.

Week Beginning 30th March

Science

This half term we were planning on doing a range of experiments in class. Please find below an experiment that you can do at home. If you don’t have a pipet you can drip the water in by putting your finger in a bowl of water and hovering it over the top of the jar until the water drops off.

Geography

Next half term we are going to be looking at Japan. Download the document below called All bout Japan and read through it with an adult. Once you have read it can you write a non-chronological report about Japan using the document to help you?

Reading comprehension

Download the 3 short reading comprehension texts and answer the questions that go with them or try the reading comprehension number 4 which is a little bit longer. You don’t need to print the sheets you can read them on your computer screen and then tell an adult the answer or write the answers down on a piece of paper.

Art

Have a go at drawing a flower that you can see in the garden. Once you have drawn the flower can you label the stem, leaf and flower?

Physical Education

For a fun work out every morning at 9am join Joe Wicks on his YouTube channel. Click on the link below to get to his page and then select the workout for the day. If you haven’t done one yet you could try and do the ones from last week aswell.

Or you can set yourself a challenge each day. How many star jumps can you do in one minute? Try and keep a chart for the week so that you can see how many you have done each day.
