ENGLISH AND P.E. ACTIVITY FROM FTFC
We would like you to take part in an event that our very own Coach Mike and his leaders are organising.
They would like us to write a letter to a future generation person or even their older selves talking about what it was like to be a child during the lock down times. They might write about the new skills they have learnt to do (cooking, learning to ride a bike, exercising more etc) they could talk about their daily routines and what they have been up to, they could write about learning from this experience and learning not to take things for granted. They could also include what was on the tv, what the government asked us to do and maybe finish with some advice on how to cope with the situation.
When the children have finished their letters they can be sent in to ...
where there is a chance that some of the players at FTFC might read out your letters.
Also the exciting news is that we have decided to go ahead with a back garden / or empty space sports day which will take place on Friday 22nd May. If you would like to take part, all you have to do is email Mr Clarke at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your entry. At a later date you will receive a sports pack via email telling you what to do on the Friday 22nd May. After that, it is over to you guys to send in your photos and videos on that day. All will be explained in the pack fully. For now, I just need to know if you are taking part?
We are currently taking part in the Lancashire School Games challenges that are taking place. You can find the information @wyreandfyldesgo on both twitter and facebook. Send your videos in when you have completed the challenge. There are prizes from the school games organisation for the best of any challenge and also the most videos sent in. Below is a list of what is coming up. Let's get going!

Home Learning Week Beginning 27th April
Hi. We hope that everyone is keeping safe. We are missing you all very much! Here is some more work that we would like you to try this week.
Using this link: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/
You will be taken to White Rose Maths. Under the week 2 tab, is the work for this week. There are 5 activities (one for each day). Each day has a video to watch with explanations and then there is a task which can be printed and completed or the questions can be answered in your workbooks.
Also, we would like you to start thinking about time. Your challenge is to design and make (if possible) a clock. Here a few examples:
If you can, get an adult to test you with different times at o'clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to each hour. Are you able to show the time on the clock? If you are feeling adventurous, have a go at times using 5 minutes steps, such as 10 past 3 or 25 to 4. (This could be a challenge!!!)
We would like you to keep a diary for each day of the week, discussing all the things that you have done during that day. It wolud be amazing if you could include drawing/photos of you doing different things. Please make sure you include:
- Full sentences that begin with a capital letter and end in a full stop.
- Your neatest handwriting.
-A variety of punctuation such as commas.
-The challenge is to include an exclamation using a !
Geography- We would like to do some research about one of the countries of the United Kingdom (or another country if you are feeling adventurous!) The sort of things we want you to look for include:
-The capital city.
-The number of people who live there.
-Interesting historical events.
-Any other languages spoken
-Any other information you find interesting.
Once you have gathered this information, we would like you to create a poster/fact file about your chosen country, using lots of colour and pictures. Also, have a go at drawing the country's flag (Good luck if you chose Wales!)
Computing- Use this link: https://scratch.mit.edu/
This will take you to Scratch, which we have use in many of our computing lessons. We would like to try and remember the different things we have done this year and make your own versions.
-Can you remember how to move the sprite around the screen?
-Can you use the pen tool and create shapes?
-Can you change what your sprite looks like?
-Can you use different backgrounds and different sprites?
-Can you use more than one sprite at a time.
There is also an app called Scratch Jr, which can be downloaded to tablets/phones from the app store/google play store. This is a simpler version of scratch that we have on our iPads at school.
If all this is still not enough to quench your thirst for learning. This link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z7s22sg/year-2-and-p3-lessons/1 has daily activities that are aimed at Year 2 children.
We hope you enjoy these tasks. If you have any questions, we are available on Class Dojo. We would also love to see any examples of the work you have produced.
Stay safe and see you soon.
The Year 2 team x
Hello lovely families,
Last week we sent home two weeks worth of work. Additionally, on the parent section of this website there is a Lancashire County Council document that contains lots of different activities and websites for you to try at home with your children. There has also been numerous activities that have been widely circulated that you can try. We hope you find these useful. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us on Dojo. We would also love to see any pictures of the activities that you have been up to during this time.
Our thoughts are with everyone at this time.
Miss Hickson and Mr Hobley
