Thursday 17th December.


Good morning Year 2, here are todays tasks for you.


Don't forget we be hosting Zoom meetings today to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Puffins can log in at 11am and Hedgehogs at 1pm. We can't wait to see you!


Can you design and make a Christmas card for someone special. Here are some ideas that may help inspire you.





Following on from last weeks Science lesson where we discussed the importance diet and nutrition. Can you plan your ideal Christmas dinner. Will you have a starter and pudding or just a main course? Try to remember the importance of having balanced meals. Draw your perfect Christmas dinner and then write a shopping list of the ingredients you will need for your meal. When we write lists we must include commas after each item, can you include commas in your list?

Good Morning Year 2, here are your activities for today. 


Now that we are all in isolation, we're not able to find out what cheeky antics Twinkle and Puffin are getting up to! We would like you to write a short story about how you think the elves must be feeling and what they might be getting up to at school without us!


Can you recreate the Nativity scene, if possible can you combine a range of techniques such as paint and collage? 


Now it's too soon to start tracking Santa, however why not take a look at the Norad Santa tracker website. In the library section you can explore different Christmas traditions from all over the world. Can you find out how Christmas is celebrated in Kenya or how Australians celebrate this magical time?


Pick a country and and create a fact file detailing their traditions, how does that country's festivities compare to your own traditions with your family?

Watch the pantomime and write a review. What was your favourite part? Who was your favourite character? Did you enjoy the storyline?
