Ola Year 2, hope you had a good sleep. How did you get on with Monday’s home learning? I hope you managed to write that letter for me. I received Thanzil and Zak’s letter. It was really helpful and funny. Thanzil suggested that I put ice on the floor, so it can sleep without being too hot. Good idea Thanzil! Zak, you had some doubts about the surprise visitor didn’t you? Also, I won’t be taking my bed, backyard with me when I make the journey to South Pole.. haha :-)
Did you perform the poem ‘In Praise of Penguins’ for your family? I like the poem because it is funny and has lots of facts and some topic words. Today I want you to answer the questions in your homework book. Some are really tricky but you have to read them carefully to understand what the question is asking you. So good luck!
I am so impressed with some of your learning on studyladder. Also those of you that are using studyladder everyday please take breaks in between because we don’t want you to spend too long staring at the screen. I am giving you few challenges for today. You can ask your adults to sit with you to go through them. Some you will be able to do it independently and some you may need some support. If you find these challenges too tricky then go on studyladder and carry on with the challenges you are doing.
Meet Sarah Fosse. She is an Artist, who lives in London. She uses bright colours and unique style to paint landmarks in London. Have a look at her paintings with transport vehicles. What do you notice? Look at the lines she uses. What is odd about them? What technique do you think she uses? Have a go at sketching any of her painting. You don’t need to do an actual painting but you can use a pencil to try to replicate her work. I know that you will get it wrong and it may look really messy but have a go again and remember we need to have a growth mindset when we do something. :-)
Can you believe it! I had to take a picture to show you. The penguin wouldn’t leave me alone. It follows me everywhere. What should I do? Can you write me a letter to give me some advice on what to do? Remember to start your letter with - Dear Shay on the left corner and on the right corner you can put the address of our school and the date.

You need to write in 2nd person and let me know about your thoughts and feelings after hearing this news. I am looking forward to read your letters. You can use your homework books to write them.
However I am excited to see some of your transport vehicles today, so please do upload them on Purplemash or send it in an email to Joan. I can see Hayat’s, which she managed to upload in her own Purplemash folder. Well done Hayat! It looks great.
