Festive Forest Fun!

We have been feeling all festive in The Den.

Miss Taylor set us a challenge of making an Evergreen Star Wreath!

Yesterday we collected various evergreens from around Forest School inclusing Holly, Ivy and other ferns.

It was so wet yesterday we had to let them dry out and make the wreaths today.

What do you think?!?

We love them- well done Denners!

E-safety Top Tip – Internet connected devices

Has your child written their Christmas list yet?

I’m sure they have included a few Internet connected devices, such as:

  • smart speakers, for example Google Home and Amazon Echo
  • wearables, for example a Fitbit and an Apple Watch
  • toys with voice or image recognition, for example Hello Barbie™ and Furby Connect
  • robots, drones and other mechanical toys, controlled via an app, such as Dash and Dot.

All of these items would make great Christmas gifts and are useful to have around the home.  However, many parents don’t realise that internet connected devices have the same risks as devices like smartphones and tablets. These risks can be more likely to happen if the devices aren’t used or set up properly.

For ideas and tips about how to keep your family safe with internet connected devices, visit the NSPCC website.

Friday home learning – Maths

Your child should have received an invite to this session however if not you can ‘join’ the meeting through the Teams app.

Children will need paper and a pen handy for the session.

Following the lesson, the questions on the sheet below should be answered.  You do not need to print this sheet but the children will need to see it so they can work out their answers.

**Please note – we do not expect your child to complete all 5 sheets.  Choose one or two sheets to suit their ability.  The stars at the top of the sheet show the difficulty, with 1 star being the easiest and 5 stars being the hardest**

Year 2 Topic/Literacy Learning: Friday 4th December

On Friday we will be delivering two live Teams lessons again. The first will be Maths at 9:30am. Then Literacy/Topic will be at 11am. This will be a session comparing how Christmas is different in Australia to here in the UK.

Your child should have received an invite to this session however if not you can ‘join’ the meeting through the Teams app.

Children will need paper and a pen handy for the session.

Following the lesson, the children will need to complete their postcard from Australia to home.  You do not need to print this sheet but the children will need to see it so they can work out how to write and present their postcard.

After completing your postcard writing, could you draw a postcard picture on the reverse side to show an Australian Christmas scene? Please see examples below!

To finish off this week’s learning, we thought you might like to share the sequel to ‘The Day The Crayons Quit’. It’s all about postcards sent to Duncan from the crayons so fits perfectly with today’s learning.

Keep up the hard work everyone! The Year 2 team are very proud of you this week!

See you tomorrow,

Miss Newport, Miss Jones, Mrs Thomas and Mrs Horler 😊
