Good Morning Everyone!

                                                            Prudential GIF
I hope that you are all well and ready for today's activities. 
I hear that many of you are enjoying the '
Around the World' Project and you've already found lots of information about different places.  Remember, you can do the tasks in any order and you don't have to do them all if you don't have time. 

For those of you who are in school today, I hope that you have a lovely day with Mrs Matthews and Mrs Acheson! 

Collective Worship            

I hope that you enjoyed yesterday's colllective worship.  Let's join Mrs Acheson again for Collective Worship. We're all missing being together, but this is something that everybody can share, even if we're not all in school.  

Look on the News Page for this picture, to join in with Collective Worship.

Wake up and shake up! Start the day with some PE, or maybe have a PE session later in the day.
Click on the link below to choose from the selection of activities. 
You could do a morning routine with Joe Wicks, find a fun activity on GoNoodle or try something new like yoga:  https://www.harrogatessp.com/keeping-all-young-people-active/

You might like to do one of these activities, or maybe go for a walk, run or do some cycling. 

Try to read a variety of books at home each day.  Aim to spend at least twenty minutes reading. This can be reading a book aloud or sharing a book with an adult. It might be a book from your bookshelf, a book from school or an online text.  
Year 2 -You can do an AR quiz when you have finished your  book: https://ukhosted79.renlearn.co.uk/6706937/

Today, we are going to listen to a story that some of us have heard before.  We enjoyed it so much when we were learning about habitats, that you might like to read it again.‘Meercat Mail’ by Emily Gravett:
Click on the book to start the video.
Think about the places that Sunny visits.  Which place would be your favourite and why?
Pretend to be Sunny and complete a travel review about one of the places he visited
Here are some ideas about what you could include. Draw pictures of the place in your travel review. 
 You can create your own travel review or print one of these if you prefer:   -t-l-527650-meerkat-travel-reviews-writing-frames.pdf-  


Phonics and Spelling:
Can you make a  list of places from around the world, using the alphabet?
For each place, add an adjective (describing word) that starts with the same letter.
Here’s an example for A and B:  Amazing Africa, Beautiful Brazil
Do you remember that this is called 
alliteration?  Alliteration is when two, or more, words start with the same letter.

Also, please write the spellings for this week into your spelling log. 


2d shapes
Today, we are going to watch a clip to remind ourselves about 2d shapes:

Here are some flags from around the world.  Which shapes can you see in the flags? 
Look at some more  flags from around the world either in books or on the internet .https://www.worldometers.info/geography/flags-of-the-world/
Make a list any shapes you can see in the flags.

Practise your subtraction skills, using this game:
Keep practising your KIRFs target! 

Forest Schools:
How about building a den sometime during this week? Mrs Goss has suggested these super ideas for den building:  
-Forest school task sheet WC 15.6.20.pdf- 

Be kind and help others
Don’t forget to try to do something to help someone else each day. There are lots of things that you could do to be helpful.  Have a think about what you could do to help someone.  I was very pleased to hear that many of you helped with the washing up, after last week's baking activity.  Well done!  Maybe, you could send a message to someone far away, to let them know that you are thinking about them?

The Project for this week is called ‘All Around the World’  

You will be able to learn about countries and cities around the world and find out about different cultures and traditions, famous landmarks, food and clothing. Work on the project tasks throughout the week.  Choose the activities that interest you.   
Investigate Maps
Use an atlas or a map to locate countries that make up the UK.
Can you write the names of the countries in the UK?
Which seas surround the UK?
Look at a world map. 
Can you find and name the continents of the world?
Can you find and name some of the seas and oceans of the world?
● Flags- Take a look at flags from around the world https://www.worldometers.info/geography/flags-of-the-world/.
Which are your favourite flags? Why do you like them? Can you make your favourite flag? You could draw, paint, use collage or maybe use a computer drawing tool, such as 2Paint.
Can use find where your flag belongs on a map?
● Dance Around the World- Watch the following dances: Diwali Stick Dance, https://safeyoutube.net/w/HGi6
 Maypole Dancing https://safeyoutube.net/w/qHi6 and Spanish Flamenco Dancing https://safeyoutube.net/w/JHi6 .
Have a go at some of the moves used in these videos. You could ask an adult to record your dance, then you can see what you were doing well and what you could improve.
Can you create one of the costumes using items from your wardrobe? Perform the dance to a family member.
● Food Tasting Fun
Which fruit do you like?  Can you find out which country your favourite fruit comes from? 
If you have some fruit at home, ask an adult to cut one of the fruits open. Then have a go at sketching the inside of each fruit. Look closely at the patterns and shapes that you can see.
● Where in the World?
Have a discussion with an adult about your own family heritage.
Discuss your family traditions and where your family originates from.
This may be where you live now, or it could be somewhere completely different.
Can you create a poster or PowerPoint all about your family?
Can you include a map identifying the country that you are from? If this is different to where you live now, you could add both maps.
Speak the Language- There are lots of different ways to say hello around the world.
Learn how to say hello in Spanish, French, and Italian and some countries of your choice, using Google Translate. https://translate.google.co.uk/ Write ‘hello’ in the English box, then choose a country to find their ‘hello’ word.  You can click on the speaker button to hear the word.
Practise writing ‘hello’ using the colours of the flag for each country.
Famous Buildings Around the World
● The Bird’s Nest is the world’s largest steel structure and was built in China for the 2008 Olympic Games. It is made out of 26 miles of steel.
● Use strips of paper, card or wool to create your own bird nest style building. You might like to search for photos of the ‘Birds nest’ to help you with your design.
Here are some famous buildings in London:
The Shard                                       Big Ben                               The Gherkin
Can you find any other famous or interesting buildings around the world? 
This one is called The Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Can you find out which is the world’s tallest building?

Work hard, be kind and have a fun day. I will be back with you tomorrow!
Missing you all,
Love from Mrs Micklefield
