I am very much looking forward to seeing you on Friday, for our circle time and some fun games. Although it is not the end of year I had planned, it will be lovely to see you all. Even with the weather, I managed to get out on my bike yesterday for a few miles, before the rain came down!

*Please do not worry about printing off your activities. You can either copy them into your home learning book, or just write down the answers if this is easier for you.*

RE- During this time of the year, we would be looking at the sacrament of reconciliation. The friends of Jesus asked him about forgiving people who had hurt them.  Peter thought it would be good to forgive them seven times and that would be quite hard to do.  Peter was surprised when Jesus told him that you have to keep on forgiving, but he did say that the person who had done wrong should say sorry and really mean it.

 

Peter came to Jesus and asked, ‘If my friend keeps hurting me, how many times do I have to forgive him/her? Seven times?

‘No, not seven times,’ answered Jesus, ‘but seventy times seven.’                                             

Based on Matthew 18: 21-22.

 

Draw around your hands and write as many words as you can think of related to friendship and forgiveness.

Year 2's Home Learning

Good Afternoon Year 2,

 

I hope you are safe and enjoying your time at home. I know a lot of you are missing school and so am I! I can’t believe it has been closed for 6 weeks now, it has been too long since we were enjoying our learning together. However, I do enjoy the pictures and videos you have been sending in, it is lovely to see you enjoying the learning you have been completing at home. Remember if you want to send me any pictures of the home learning you have been completing, email me on year2@stpeter.doncaster.sch.uk. I have attached next weeks home learning activities below. If you have any queries about this, please don’t hesitate to contact me by email.

A lovely video of the Easter Story by Alice Giannini

Still image for this video

Happy Easter Everyone!

I hope you are all continuing to keep yourselves safe and well. It feels very strange that this is the end of term and that it is a Bank Holiday weekend. I would normally be looking forward to going to the coast at some point soon, but I’m sure I’ll have time for that when it is safe to do so.

 

As this would have been our Easter holidays, I am not setting the usual amount of work to complete. Instead, I have included some suggestive activities you may wish to complete.

Remember to enjoy this time with your families and take care of yourselves!
 

Stay safe Year 2,
Mr Ward.

Year 2's Home Learning

Good Morning Year 2,

 

What a lovely day, today,

All the clouds have gone away.

The sun is shining in the sky,

As the birds are flying by. 

 

It is lovely to see the sun shining today, hopefully this will carry on throughout the week. I hope you have managed to complete some of your home learning so far and are enjoying the activities set. As well as completing the home learning activities, remember to enjoy this precious time with your families and make the most of the lovely weather, be this in your garden, or through your daily exercise. Remember, if you have any pictures of you completing your home learning, you can always send the pictures through and I will post them on the webpage, so we can share our learning experiences.

 

Stay safe and take care, I hope to see you all soon,

Mr Ward.

WritingWith it being the run up to Easter, I thought it would be nice to link our writing and                 RE together this week. Therefore, for writing this week, can you retell the Easter                   Story in your own words. I have attached a powerpoint to help remind you of the                       sequence in which it happens. Remember this can be completed over the week, so on                one day you can read and remind yourself of the story; on another day you could                        plan it by drawing pictures of what happens; and then on another day, you could write                your own version of the story.

Maths- For Maths this week we will continue on our fractions unit. I have attached the work                below. If you go to https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ there are                      videos and answers for the work provided.

                *Please do not worry about printing off your activities. You can either copy them into your home learning book, or                    just write down the answers if this is easier for you.*   

Science- Go into the garden or look outside your windows, draw a picture of a flower and label                the key parts of it using the words, flower, stem, leaves and roots. Do the same for                  a tree and then label it using the words, leaves, branches, trunk and roots.

 

Art/DT- Again, with it being the run up to Easter, can you design your own cross for                              Jesus? Afterwards, you can either decorate or make your cross? Remember you can                send me your designs if you would like and will try and post them on the webpage.

Good Afternoon Year 2,

I hope you are all keeping yourselves safe and well! It feels very different planning via the webpage, rather than planning to be in front of you all tomorrow morning, but these are the current circumstances we are in at the minute and we have to try and make the best out of it. I do wish I were seeing all of your smiling faces tomorrow, rather than looking at my laptop screen. 

 

I have uploaded next weeks work, I hope it all makes sense. Remember if you do have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me via email at year2@stpeter.doncaster.sch.uk

 

Finally don't forget I have created an account for everyone to access Numbots and Times tables rockstars (an online maths programme) so you can test out your maths knowledge. If you want to find out your login details just email me and I will send them to you.
