Good morning Year 2!

A few things before we start for the day:

  • Tomorrow, Mrs Oakley and Mrs Price will be visiting to deliver you some new activity books! We will be aiming to do most of the visits in the morning, but some of you (it is likely to be those who live a little further away from school) may be in the afternoon. We are so excited to see you all!
  • This week's zoom lessons will take place at the following times: Wednesday 9am, and Friday 12pm. Details will be sent out on Class Dojo and the school text service.
  • This week is National Schools Sports week! We will be participating in challenges and I will be giving out points for the children in their houses for PE activities - if grown ups would like to join in they are most welcome!
  • Remember, you do not need to print anything off, or rewrite the pages for the activities - just have your child write their answers down.

In today's lesson we will be looking into the differences between life in the UK and life in Kenya.

Using these activities, create a timeline for the day of a child in Kenya and a child in the UK.

Think about how you would feel living a day in Evangeline's life.

PE

Before we start, we need to think about the things we are valuing in sports. Read the 'Rainbow Games Values' which we will be honouring through our activities!
