Create an information booklet/ persuasive leaflet to describe a safari holiday in Africa.
Research and write interesting facts about the animals that visitors might encounter on the safari and describe the habitats where the animals live. Use persuasive language and images to encourage people to go on the safari holiday and have 'the trip of a life time!'
Challenge yourself to tell the time on an analogue clock.
First learn to tell the time to the hour and half hour.
Next learn quarter past and quarter to the hour.
If you are confident with the above, learn how to tell the time to the 5 minutes.

How many minutes are in an hour?
How many hours in a day?
Use this interactive clock to help you learn to tell the time:
During Science this term, Year 2 will be learning about animals and their habitats. We will be identifying that most living things live in habitats to which they are suited and describe how different habitats provide for the basic needs of different kinds of animals and plants, and how they depend on each other.
Research animals and their habitats and create a diorama (3D model/ scene) of one of the habitats that you have found out about, including the animals that live there.
Examples of habitats: rainforest, ocean, woodland, jungle etc.
Please find out about the country Bulgaria and present your information in an interesting and creative way.
If you enjoy singing and would like to learn a new song, follow the below link to visit the Sing Up at Home page. There will be a new song uploaded with a performance track and backing track each week and pointers and tips of how to sing the song successfully.

Our class Christmas tree
We have been creating Christmas tree decorations and sewing Christmas stockings to decorate our class Christmas tree.
The First World War ended on 11th November 1918 at 11 a.m. The eleventh hour, of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. Remembrance Day is a memorial day, on which people remember those who have died during wars.
Poppies are worn on Remembrance Day because they are the flowers which grew on the battlefields after the First World War ended.
On 11th November, Year 2 created poppy fields using watercolours, acrylic paint and mixed media. They also wrote poppy poems and illustrated them in their topic books.
Did you know?
Remembrance Day is sometimes called Armistice Day.

Here is a message from our local library;
I am delighted to announce that we have just launched a new Summer Reading Challenge website especially for children in Cheshire West and Chester. It includes:
And of course there’s also the national Silly Squad website where children can join to read books and get online rewards for doing so at www.sillysquad.org.uk.
We’re still working hard to get our libraries open as soon as possible. Storyhouse is reopening this Saturday, followed by Ellesmere Port, Neston, Northwich and Winsford libraries on the 13 July with revised opening hours. A further five libraries will be reviewed two weeks later. The Summer Reading Challenge will be almost entirely online this year.
In year 2 we are starting to think more deeply about texts we read and answer some questions to show our understanding.
Remember please read every night at home and ask an adult to sign your red reading diary.
Can you answer some questions and explain why and how some things happen in a story?
Can you predict what might happen later in the book and give a good reason why you think that?
Can you tell someone your own opinion about what you are reading?
Have you joined the local library ? Below is the link to the library. Take a look, go and visit and join up !!
Please make sure that you read each day at home.
