Mrs Toddington 

Hello 2GT Scroll down for today's activities. 


There is lots of talk in the media about homeschooling your children and how it should be done. There is no one right way to do this. I am finding my way with home schooling just like you all are.

My advice would be:

Have a go at the activities planned every day.(found below) 

Don't try to do too much. You don't have to do it all. Suggested 1- 1 and a half hours a day.

Make sure you do some excerise. Maybe Joe Wicks?

Use the suggested website page linked on the home page to play learning games etc.

Get in touch using the class email

Good Luck.

Mrs Grimshaw

Literacy 10.7.20


 Have a go at the spelling test attached. Good luck every one I hope you are not cheating ;)


Have a go at one question every day from the spelling and grammar questions below.

In this film-themed week, explore characters and settings from a completely different viewpoint. Enjoy some wild adventures, dramatic escapes and see everyday objects as you’ve never seen them before!

Warning! Alongside some of the clips viewed this week, there may appear advertisements for related film clips. Some of these are inappropriate and should be avoided. It is essential that parents monitor that children are remaining on the listed page only and are keeping safe online.

Today you are going to be introduced to some more small people via film. Find out all about the Borrowers in The Borrowers Trailer:

Talk about what you know about the Borrowers from this clip. Now watch and enjoy this television adaptation of a Borrower’s adventure Pod’s Adventure – The Borrowers – BBC One :

Think about what you have learnt about the borrower and how you might describe him.

Create an information poster of everything a borrower needs to be or be able to do. E.g. A BORROWER MUST BE …

 − small (or one of your words from your poster on day one)

 − not afraid of heights!

 − incredibly strong

 − brilliant at hiding

− as quiet as a mouse! etc.

Feel free to add as many features to your list as possible!

 You can use both clips to refer to for ideas.

Use colour and enlarged lettering to make your poster as attractive as possible


Literacy game of the week: Click the link below

This is an activity that you can save and share with your new teacher in year three. Take your time and do it carefully over the next two weeks.



TOPIC WORK-Geography



Friday 10th July   COMPASS DIRECTIONS.

1) Use compass directions to explain how to get from the starting point (blue circle) to the treasure.

2) Pretend you have hidden some treasure-don't tell anyone yet where it is. Now, write a set of instructions for someone else to find YOUR hidden treasure.

Remember to use compass directions-for example-5 steps North then 2 steps West.

We have been sorting animals into their groups (bird, fish,

mammal, amphibian, reptile or insect.

Then we grouped animals by what they eat-herbivores,

carnivores and omnivores.

During our investigations, we explored the poop (saltdough

mixture) left behind by different animals so see which group

they fit into.

After that we made and labelled our own animal stomachs.

As part of our science topic ANIMALS, we have had a visit from Andrew from Animals In-tuition. The children learnt about animal groups, diets, looking after each animal and handling with care. 


These are the class novels we have explored so far...


Autumn 1  Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus

Autumn 2 Snow Queen

Spring 1 Alice in Wonderland
