Key Workers!

Hi Year 2,

Sorry it has been a while. I hope you are all staying safe at home. It has been a pleasure seeing what some of you have been up to at home. It has made me think about how we can show support for the key workers who are keeping us safe and helping us in many different ways. On the school blog, you can see some children have been making key worker scarecrows and I wanted to challenge you to put your drawing and colouring skills to the test! I would love for you to pick a key worker and draw them however you like. Here are a list of just some key workers you could do:

doctor

nurse

scientist

police officer

firefighter

teacher

shopkeeper/ shop assistant

lorry drivers

waste collector

There are many more to choose, these are just examples. Pick your favourite to create, label your drawing and send them to the school email address.

Above are some example pictures. I look forward to seeing your drawings.

Good luck and stay safe,

Mr Connolly

 

The Seaside

Hello Year 2

This lovely weather has got me thinking about the beach and the seaside. This summer we were going to be learning about the seaside and the different oceans around the world.

I have found this short video that talks about our world and the 5 oceans. You might even remember some of the facts about Africa in the video that you learnt with Miss Johnstone.

I would like you to research on of the oceans in the video and write me a factfile about the different information that you have learnt about your ocean.

There is a tamplate below as well as some useful links to help you. Don’t forget to email your work to peelhall.primaryschool@salford.gov.uk so I can see the amazing work you are doing.

Here is Lenny’s factifle he has chosen to write about the animals in the Pacific ocean.

Healthy Eating

Hello Year 2

I hope you have all managed to have a nice week.

This week I have been looking over the work we did earlier this year on a balanced diet and the food pyramid.

I have been trying to keep a balanced diet at home and was wondering if you could design a healthy meal for you and your family to try at home.

Have a look at the food pyramid below to help you, remember for a balanced diet you need to inlcude food from all the different food groups on the pyramid.

Don’t forget to send me your ideas on the school email and I will have a look at them and get back to you.

I hope you all have a nice weekend and I hope to see you soon.

Great Fire of London diary

Hello Year 2

I hope you are all doing well and managing to enjoy this weeks sunny weather safely. Yesterday I watched a program on the Great Fire of London and it reminded me of all the fantastic diary entries we wrote when we studied this in our English lessons.

So this week I would like to hear what you have been getting up to whilst we have not been in school. It would be great to read a diary entry from you explaining what you and your families have been getting up to.

Once you are done don’t forget to send them to peelhall.primaryschool@salford.gov.uk and I will be able to read them and reply to you.

I look forward to reading what you have got up to. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Mr Bean

Hello from Mrs Whittaker…

Hi Year Two,

I hope you are all safe and well. I thought I’d share these photos of a family members newborn lambs. They are two weeks old and are being fed by bottle three times a day. I usually go to see them and help out with this.

The farm is extra busy as they can’t have as much help as usual due to lockdown, so they all have to help one another.

I’ve been helping out my elderly parents by getting their food shopping for them. Have you been helping your families? I know lots of you are great helpers in school.

Take care and hope to see you soon,

Mrs Whittaker

Materials at home

Hello Year 2

I hope you are all having a good week and are managing to stay safe at home.

As the weather has taken a turn for the worse this week, I have been doing some spring cleaning in my house and have found lots of different materials.

We looked at different types of materials before christmas and you were all very good at putting these different materials into different categories. So I was hoping you could help your grown ups at home and show me the different types of materials you have in your homes.

I have included a link to a short video to help recap what we learnt and I look forward to seeing what you find.

Hope to see you all soon.

Mr Bean

A letter from you?

Hi Year 2,

I hope you have been enjoying the lovely weather so far.

While at home I have been wondering what you have all been doing while at home. It has been delightful to see what some of you have been doing with your family! I have seen a lot of creativity.

I would love to read a letter about what you have done during your time at home staying safe. I have written my own letter below if you are interested in some of the things I have been doing:

Dear Year 2,

I have been missing our time together in the classroom and I have been trying to keep myself busy. I am writing to tell you some of the things I have been doing while staying at home.

I have been playing lots of board games including chess and scrabble to keep my brain busy and to have some fun at the same time. In addition to playing games I have watched a lot of Disney movies. As you know they are my favourite! Some of them were Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, the new Aladdin and the Toy Story movies. When I was shopping for food, I decided to get some ingredients to make a variety of smoothies. Some of the flavours were strawberry, raspberry and cocount. They were all very tasty and refeshing to drink. Everyday I have been playing with my dog Teddy in the back garden and I take him for walks so we both get the exercise we need. You can see some pictures of him below. I hope all of you are staying safe and I hope to find out what some of you have been up to as well.

I’ll write again next week,

Mr Connolly.

 

A fun week in the sun

Good afternoon everybody I hope you have all managed to enjoy the sun safely this week. I have been in school this week with some of our children and we would like to share the different activities that we have done with you in the sun.

During this week we have painted a rainbow out of different pebbles from the Early Years garden. We have also made made some biscuits and cakes, which we have enjoyed eating whilst we have watched our afternoon film. Yesterday we managed to wash all the bikes and trucks, although we all got a little wet completing this activity. To finish this week we have been playing in the mud kitchen making some exciting recipes for Mr Bean and Mrs Weedall to try.

We hope to see you all again very soon. Enjoy your weekend

Mr Bean, Mrs Weedall and Miss Bolton

Animals and their habitats

Good afternoon Year 2. I hope you are all managing to enjoy the lovely weather we have had this week safely.

Whilst I have been in school this week, I have been looking over some of the science work we did in the last week we were in school. If you remember, we were looking at the different things animals need to survive in the places they live. I was wondering if anyone could help me and design a habitat for some of these animals?

Remember they will need a place for their shelter, some water to keep them hydrated, food to give them energy and air so they can breath.

Once you have created your habitat, don’t forget to send it to the school email so I can see what you have created. I will put the ones I get on the blog for your friends to see.

Enjoy the rest of your week

Mr Bean

Habitats!

Hi Year 2!

I hope you are all continuing to stay safe. Our last Science topic was about habitats and it was interesting to know all of the different places where animals live and survive. Try discussing with your family and see if you can answer these questions.

  • Can you think of an animal that lives in each of these habitats?
  • Can you also explain why they live in that habitat?

Example: I know that snakes are cold-blooded animals so they need to live in warm habitats like a desert.

I wonder what you will think of. Stay safe and I will write again soon. 🙂
