Year 2 - Matterhorn
I'm missing you as the days go by. I hope you're keeping up with your learning. Remember to take it step by step and to give yourself a break in between each activity. Please remember you have your home learning packs to work through, and to read as much as you can. Hopefully it won't be too long before I see you again.

Orion and the Dark
Here is a video of the story: Orion and the Dark
Think about the dark as a setting. How would Orion describe it? How do you feel about it?
1. Create an image of the dark by drawing or painting.
2. Brainstorm a list of adjectives to describe the dark. Label you image.
What does it look like? How does it sound? How does it feel?
Fill in the adjectives to describe the dark using your five senses:
3. Annotate your image with sentences describing the dark. Can you write 2A sentences to describe the dark?

Geography Activity: Under the Canopy
Listen to the sounds of the rainforest.
1. What sounds can you identify?
2. Can you sort the sounds into groups? e.g. birds, animals, natural sounds.
3. What is a canopy?
Living in the canopy means you can’t see a lot of what’s going on – there are a lot of leaves in the way, so some animals rely heavily on sound. This means they need to listen to sounds to help them around the rainforest.
They call to each other and can recognise when another of their species is calling back. For example, birds know the difference between their tweeting sounds and another bird's tweeting sounds.
Here are some websites to help you choose your animal to research:
