Hi everyone!

We're now in our 4th week of online lessons and this week we're adding a couple of videos so you'll get to see your teachers! Literacy and numeracy lessons will continue in the same format but we will share some other activities with you. We hope you enjoy hearing from us!

 

Remember there are two literacy and numeracy tasks each day.

Literacy and numeracy 2 are available if you are  struggling with

literacy and numeracy 1. 

 

We can be contacted by email at y2homework@cottam.lancs.sch.uk if you have any queries about the home learning. Please feel free to email us with finished work that you have completed-this does not have to be every single piece of work. 

Happy learning!

Mrs Harrison and Mrs Cobos.

 

Thursday 28th January

Good morning everyone.

Well done to all of you who are working so hard on your lessons and activities at home. We hope you enjoyed the story time yesterday and we are already looking forward to sharing another book with you next week.

For the literacy 1 task today you will look at how a writer uses description in their writing ready to use your own description tomorrow and the literacy 2 task will enable you to write about the hat maker losing his hats to the monkeys.

We know some of you have already spotted habitats when you have been out and about after the science lesson last week. Today you will be looking at microhabitats, learning what they are and where you can find them.

Enjoy!

ART TEXTILES

ART TEXTILES

The children are extremely pleased with their finished textile pieces. They have worked very hard to create a background and then choose a theme as a basis of their work. Their cutting and arranging skills can be seen in the photos above. Some children had a go at sewing buttons and fabric onto theirs too. They have thought about layering the fabric to create a 3D effect. From jungle scenes to beaches, they all look amazing. Well done year 2!! 

Christmas party day!

Happy Hallowe'en- our amazing costumes and decorated pumpkins!

FOOD TECHNOLOGY

The children have thoroughly enjoyed this unit of work. They have prepared and made salads. They have found out about The Eatwell Plate and the importance of eating a variety of fruit and vegetables. The highlight for most children has been making their own fruit smoothie or fruit salad.

Hopefully, the children will continue to enjoy eating fruit and vegetables!
