Hello lovely Matterhorn,
Welcome to another week of home learning. I hope you had a wonderful weekend enjoying the beautiful sunshine and you are all keeping safe!
This week we will be continuing Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman. We will continue to learn about and read the time in maths. If you’ve done some fantastic work or activity, send me a picture of it and I will upload it on our class page under the star of the week for everyone to see!
Please email me if you need anything, want to send work, or even just want to let me know how you are getting on! I would love to hear from you all.

New free website details emailed to parents sometime this week.
Sign in to TT Rockstars to practice your times tables and play fun games! Look in your emails for details!
By the end of Year 2 you should be able to count in steps of 2, 3, and 5 from 0, and in tens from any number, forward and backward.
You can you make 'groups of' using small objects around the house to count out loud.
You can also play this game and click on the tables you'd like to practice.
Weekly Project: PSHEDiscuss the different routes you take when you walk to school. If you don't walk to school, how do you travel and why? Why is walking to school a good idea?
Some benefits of walking and physical exercise include:
It lowers the risk of illnesses
It strengthens the heart, bones and muscles
It keeps the brain active
It helps people to live longer
Find your heart and place your hand on your chest. See if you can feel your heartbeat. Another spot you can find it is on your wrist.
Can you count how many times your heart beats in 1 minute?
Next, do some exercises like jogging on the spot, spotty dogs and star jumps. Here's a video you could do:
How do you feel after the exercise? Your heart may be beating faster and you may be out of breath.
Now count your heartbeat again!
We know we are doing physical exercise when our heartbeat rises. How much physical exercise should you do to stay fit and healthy? You should do 60 minutes of physical activity every day. This means anything that gets the heart beating faster than usual.
Why is physical exercise important to remain healthy?
Do we need to be outside to have exercise?
Do we need to use equipment to raise our heartbeat?
Sort the pictures of hobbies and activities into physical exercise and those
that would not accelerate the heartbeat.
Think about your perfect weekend and evaluate whether there is a good range of activities.
Is there enough physical exercise over your weekend?
Do you think you get enough exercise daily?
How can you get more?
