There are 3 activities to choose from.
Activity 3 looks great! Here are some templates to help you if needed.
AND OF COURSE WE WOULD NEVER COPY WHAT GEORGE DID WITH ALL THE INGREDIENTS! WHY?

Week 12: 01 July 2020: Home learning
Can you believe that we are in week 12 of home learning!
It is simply amazing how well everyone has adapted to this.
Please let us know if you would be in the class Zoom meeting as soon as possible. We are working on a date and time and will let you know the details soon.
Have a go at this morning challenge to warm up your brains.
You have the usual 3 tasks to complete today.
LO: Extending sentences using connectives.
Complete the worksheets below.
Here is an example to help you.
If I could go into space, I would be lonely because none of my friends would be there.
Every now and then we will revisit some previous learning. Today, we are going to look at place value.
LO: revision of place value
There are quite a few activities here. You can have a go at all of them or maybe just 2 or 3 over a few days.
Let’s think about your transition to Year 3.
Before our Zoom meeting, we would like you to complete the attached booklet. If you aren’t able to print it out then you can write down all your favorite facts about being in Year 2.
We are hoping to get a message from your new teacher to show you during our meeting.
Then, choose one of these activities to complete ready for Year 3. The resources are all based on a superhero theme and include written and art activities that can be added to your classroom as a display. Here are some suggestions about how to use them:
- Superhero Profile – Ask children to complete this activity sheet. It asks them for a superhero name, their secret identity (their real name), their super powers (what subjects / activities they are good at), their weaknesses (things they would like to get better at) and ways that they are going to change the world (their hopes and dreams for the future).
- Superhero Shield Design – Challenge pupils to create a design to match their superhero character. Can they think of appropriate images to add to the design (to highlight their strengths / talents / interests)?
- Or, you can design your own Year 3 super hero.
Finally, here’s a short story for you to enjoy at the end of your learning.
