Hi Class 2!
I hope you are all staying safe and well. I am missing you so much!
We are now starting our Summer Term Topic which is:
Within this topic, we will look at how we grow and change as people and also how animals grow and change. You can have lots of fun investigating how you and members of your close family have changed the older you have become. Also, what we need as humans to survive. I have tried to incorporate activities that you will enjoy doing with your family and what all the family can get involved in. They should be done alongside your daily activities which I hope you are all still carrying out.
It would be fantastic to see your completed activities on Padlet. I really am enjoying looking at all the lovely work you are doing, along with the different ways you are helping around the home and the new experiences you are having.
I have some more ideas for activities for you to carry out and complete in a few weeks’ time which will look at what you can do to help yourself grow strong and healthy. Until then, keep posting on Padlet, enjoy the special time you have at home, and stay safe.
Look at different stages of growth in a human.
· Find different pictures of you and your family members at different stages of development.
· Discuss with your family the differences between being a baby, toddler, child, teenager, adult and even being elderly. Is there anything that remains the same? You might want to consider looks, what support is needed to survive and stay healthy etc.
My first memory!
· Write about the very first memory you have as a small child and illustrate your writing.
· What was a member of your family’s first memory, can they tell you about it?
Animals and their babies
· Research the different names of animal babies and their parents eg: puppy/dog, lamb/sheep, cub/lion etc.
· Make a matching game to play with your family where you have to match the baby to the parent.
Babies that do and don’t look like their parents
· Make a list of animals that look like their parent and a list of animals that don’t look like their parent.
· Research more examples to add to your lists.
What do I need to survive?
Pretend that you are going to live on a desert island for a short while on your own. What would you pack in your suitcase?
· Draw a suitcase with the items you would pack.
· Put a red circle around the things that you NEED to survive.
· Put a blue circle around the things that would make your stay more comfortable.
Draw a bar graph
· Draw a bar graph to show the different ages of people in your family.
· Include other people in your family, for example: cousins, aunties, uncles and grandparents.
