# 31 March

Tuesday 31 March 2020

Happy Tuesday, Year 2! We hope you’ve had your breakfast and you are ready for today’s learning.

Here are your daily physical and mindfulness activities for you to try.

Physical activity: #ThisisPE has just been launched by Yorkshire Sport Foundation to support parents and carers to teach some PE at home and we love this first video based on tennis skills.  Videos will be posted at 1pm on a Monday, Wednesday and a Friday. You don’t need sports equipment – all the videos will use items that you can find around the home.

Mindfulness activity: Each day we take about 20,000 breaths. Try this flower breathing exercise to bring attention to your breathing.

Lexia

There’s even more Lexia success to announce – Olivia, Betsy and Ralph have achieved their next level.

Based on the fluency text from yesterday, here are some words with definitions.

spill – where a liquid goes over the edge of a container

broth – a kind of soup

tablecloth – a cover for a table

disgusting – something not very nice

loud – not quiet

chew – to use your teeth to break up food in your mouth

Did you spot the rhyming pattern in the poem?

Firstly, spend ten minutes on Lexia (if you can access this at home).

Today, we are looking at another image from Pobble365 titled Animal Town.

1.What jobs might the animals in the picture do in Animal Town?

2.How might Animal Town be different to a human town?

3.What problems could happen in Animal Town?

4.Would animals be better off without humans?

Challenge: If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?

A face is a flat or curved surface on a 3D shape.

An edge is where two faces meet.

A vertex is a corner where edges meet. The plural is vertices
