Welcome to Class 2

My Style Homework - Summer Term 2021

 

This term, we have been studying homes and habitats including environmental changes. As part of this, we have become aware of some species of plants and animals that are ‘endangered’ (meaning threatened with extinction).

Your task is to create a fact file about a plant or an animal that is endangered. I would like you to include information about:

  • The animal or plant (such as its habitat, diet, biology etc)
  • The threats (why is it endangered?)
  • What people can do to help.

You can research your chosen species using books or the internet – the WWF website has a wealth of information.

Your work should be presented neatly, clearly and preferably colourfully. Please see the example on the Class 2 page.

Your work should be handed in after half term on Monday 7th June (that gives you 2 weeks to complete your work). I can’t wait to see your amazing fact files!

Here are some websites that you may find helpful for your research.

See below for an example of what a fact file might look like.

 

 

Class 2 enjoyed learning about healthy foods and cooking a delicious meal: Vegetable cobbler with cheese and basil biscuit!

Science Week in Class 2: dissecting flowers!

Science Week in Class 2: exploring different types of rocks!

Easter Maths (Optional)

There is no requirement to complete these maths activities, but they here as an option if you would like to practice your maths skills during the Easter holiday.

 

Reading regularly through the holiday would also be great to keep your reading skills tip-top!

 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter break!

Class 2 have made some amazing collages of Viking Longships

PE Kit

 

Please can I remind all parents that Class 2 pupils need their PE kit in school all week, Monday to Friday. This is because we do not have a 'set' day for PE. We do all PE outside, it is therefore weather dependent.

Thank you.

All of the staff at Denton School are looking forward to welcoming the children back on Monday 8th March.

 

If your child is feeling a little anxious about returning to school, reading this lovely story about Sammy Sloth might help (see pdf below). 

 

I can't wait to see you all!

Half Term

 

You all deserve a well-earned rest over half term!

But if you are looking for something to keep you entertained, try out some of these science-based activities!

Leader in Me.

On a daily basis, the children try to demonstrate our core values within school. As we aim to practise them so often, they become good habits that we can use not only in school but also at home too. 

 

  • Habit 1: Be Proactive (You’re in Charge)
  • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood(Listen Before You Talk)
  • Habit 6: Synergise (Together Is Better)
  • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)

 

Growth Mindset

 

This year we will be helping the children to develop a Growth Mindset. This aims to increase their resilience, perseverance and independence in their learning. Further information can be found by following the link below.

British Values
Homework
