Year 1 & 2 Home Learning
This page will detail activities that you can do with your child at home during any school closures. Each day we will upload a little more information about the activities for the day. Please let us know about any problems through the class email.
Please don't feel pressure to complete all daily tasks and study ladder tasks. Choose a few activities each day, with your child to complete. You can email us completed work to upload to our 'Home Learning Work' page.
Take care and keep working hard!

Our new topic is...
Dancing feet, step to the samba beat. Shake it, shimmy, hands in the air, wave your flags in the cool night air. Come join the party down in Rio, keeping the rhythm with your party shaker. Bright colours, patterns and feathers and making of a headdress or party mask. Meet magical creatures from Brazil’s myths and legends and create your own too. Be as fancy as you like. Let’s get down to Rio where football is king, and practise our skills.

You may want to continue to work on your personal target and aim to improve on your time.
Alternatively, you may like to challenge yourself and begin to learn a new times table.
Or you could be creative and draw a multiplication flower.
Children start this activity by drawing the centre of the flower, in which they write a number between 2 and 12. They then draw 12 petals around the centre, with each petal containing the numbers 1 through 12. The last step is to draw another set of 12 petals which contain the centre number multiplied by each petal in the inner circle.
D&T - Make colourful headdresses for a samba parade. Select and use a variety of different materials, beginning to explain their choices. Measure the size of their heads and make a simple card band to decorate with jewels, feathers, sparkling glitter and beads.
Encourage children to explain why they have chosen particular materials and embellishments. Do they want their headdresses to sway to the music, glitter in the light or stand out with vibrant colours?
