Good morning Galileo class,
I hope you have had a love half term with your families and enjoyed time outside with this lovely sunny weather. It's the start of another exciting half term for us and we are going to be diving under the sea to learn lots of new things! Please watch the video to learn a little bit more about our plans for the next seven weeks of learning.
Please continue to learn/revise the sounds by joining in with the Read, Write Inc. lesson. Please watch the Set 3 sounds lesson, this is now available from 9.30am daily. There are also new videos to watch which will be helpful if your child is confident with the sounds. There is a video focusing on reading longer words and another reading Red Words.
Here is the link to the Read, Write Inc. video link and also some information of what Red Words are. This information sheet also mentions another activity called 'Read and Hold a Sentence', this isn't relevant for Year 2 children.

Today you are going to start learning about explorers who loved to find out about the sea! You have a comprehension sheet in your current home learning pack called 'Deep Sea Explorers'. Read the information about the explorers and then answer the questions. I wonder what you will learn about deep sea divers! I have included the sheets just in case you can't find them in your folder.
Your maths lesson today involves you reviewing what you have already learnt about position and movement. Before the holidays you learnt lots of words to describe movement. Use the presentation lesson 5 to remind you of what you have learnt. Your challenge today is to complete an investigation where you look at grids and describe how to get to the object. There is a word list to download if you think this will help. After you have completed the investigation, there are some blank grids so you can draw your own two objects and get someone in your house to describe all the ways of getting from one object to the other. Listen really carefully to make sure they don't make any mistakes, sometimes mum and dads get it wrong too!
This week there's lots of new topic work to choose from including Art, Science and Geography. There are also some resources which you may find helpful which will help children to understand about coronavirus and social distancing in a lovely child friendly way.
