Good morning Y2! Hope you are all well. Just to let you know that school is closed this Thursday and Friday, so I won't be putting anything on the blog. I will set you some challenges on studyladder and purplemash that you could do over the next few days.
However, I can't wait to see you this afternoon. I will be getting your books ready in the morning so be there. Did you manage to figure out who's who from the baby photos yesterday? It was a bit tricky. I only recognized about 7 of them. Maddie has listed the baby photos and I think Maddie you did a great job.

Draw a picture of yourself riding an animal that turned into a giant. Once you have finished, can you orally re-tell the story to someone else?
How did you get on with similes? Today we are going write a little description of the forest after the flooding had stopped. How does the forest look now? How are the children and villagers feel having lots of tress filled with different fruit? What would they smell? What would they do when they see so many different trees? Would they race to the trees to gobble up the fruit? Remember to use adjectives and verbs to show and not tell.
I have started my description with:
After spending days and nights in the tallest mountains Agouti, Macounima and the villagers hurried back to the forest. When they approached the dry land, they were all...
Yesterday you found half of shapes, objects and numbers. Let's move onto finding quarters. What does that remind you of? Are you thinking about the clock or a pizza? How many equal slices do you need to cut your pizza into to make it into quarters?
What does the 1 represent? What does the 4 represent? Quarter mean to split something into 4 equal pieces. Have a go at the challenges below.
