  Click on the middle picture to listen to the Dr Who music, which was composed by a lady called Delia Derbeyshire
Then, when the clip has finished, click on the <- back arrow  to get back to this page.

How about travelling in THIS vehicle?!   Would you join Dr Who to be transported in a Police Box....?  It looks a bit dangerous to me!

Well, you've made it to Friday again, Class 2. What a busy week! 
I hope that you have all enjoyed being travellers this week.  I have certainly enjoyed looking at all the pictures of your fantastic work. 
Excellent information and story writing, this week. Thankyou for working so hard. I hope you all have a lovely weekend.  You're all superstars!

Take a look at our 
Transport Gallery  to see what everyone has been doing!

If you're in school today, have a fun Friday with Mrs Acheson and Mrs Wicks.

Try to spend at least twenty minutes reading. This can be reading a book aloud or sharing a book with an adult. 
Year 2 -You can do an AR quiz when you have finished your  book: https://ukhosted79.renlearn.co.uk/6706937/

I hope you are enjoying reading your books about travelling and transport.
Reading and Writing:

Discussion ideas:
• What is the moral of the story?  What message  is it trying to teach?
• Imagine that the bear and elk fell into the river and managed to both climb out.
   What might happen next?

Here are two activites  about the film for you to do.  First of all, think about adjectives that describe the characters, then think about what bear and elk might be saying to each other.



Year 1 and Year 2

First watch this short video clip and do the activity questions on the page.

Click on the picture to begin

Then, please do these tasks, to help you to learn about predicting capacity and using a measuring jug to read capacity. 
With an adult, gather a selection of different sized containers.  jugs, bowls, cups  and a measuring jug.                                                                        
Can you predict which will hold the most/least water. Pour cups of water to see which holds the most/least.
For objects that are similar in size, predict how much water it will hold and then use a measuring jug to read the capacity.
Can you order the capacity of some of the containers by using < (less than) > greater than,  and = (equal to)
Bucket > egg cup
cup  <  washing up bowl
Can you write down some of you measurements?  Remember, capacity is measured in ml (millilitres) and l (litres)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Maths Challenges:  
Also, for those of you who would like to do a maths challenge.  Have a go at these questions:

Answers to yesterday's challenge:



Which exercise activity are you going to do today?
You might like to do one of the activities below, or maybe go for a walk, run or do some cycling. 


Be kind and help others
Have you done anything to help someone else today?  Try to do a kind act for someone else. It might be to help with something or it might be to do something to cheer up another person.  A friendly wave and smile through the window can mean a lot to someone who is lonely.

Transport Learning Project
This week you will be learning more about transport.  You might find out  about different typs of transport, transport in the past or the science behind transport.  You could also learn about road safety and how to be safe around water. 

Wacky Wheels- Can you investigate bicycles from the past to the present?                                                                            

How have they changed? 
Make a timeline of drawings of bikes through time
Have a look at the powerpoint slides below, to see lots of pictures and information about bicycles from the past.
The powerpoint might go into your downloads file.  Open the powerpoint into ‘slideshow’ so that you see everything.

Can you create a design for a bike in the future?

   Transport Through Time!-  
Look through these slides to find out what changes have taken place. 
Make sure you open the powerpoint into ‘slideshow’ so that you see everything.

-How Has Transport Changed.ppt-  

-History of transport.pptx- 
 Pictures showing the first cars -History of the car.pdf-  

 Pictures showing early space travel -History of space travel-V299535281.pptx-  

Activities that you might like to do:
Create a timeline of transport from the past to the present.
Find out about the first aeroplanes. Who was the first person to fly in one?
Find out about the first trains?  Who invented the first train?
 You could make a poster or fact file. 

Create a booklet about different forms of transport. You can choose which form of transport to write about:
You might want to do some more fact finding about rockets?
How about sports cars and racing cars?
Maybe, you are interested in sea travel – ships, submarine, boats, yachts? Perhaps trains or tractors?

Transport around the world Do all countries have the same types of transport? Investigate different forms of travel across the world.  Here’s a slide show for you to start your fact finding:

Maybe you could make a poster or a report about the transport used in a different country.

Moving Models-
Find some junk modelling around the house and a make a model car that moves.
If you prefer, you could make a model car from lego or a different construction kit.
Test it out in the garden or during your daily walk.
Does the car move faster or slower on a ramp? Why/why not?

Float your Boat!

Using a variety of materials to make boats out of junk e.g. wood, plastic , paper,  polystyrene etc.
Make a prediction about whether or not they will float and then test them to see which floats the longest. Can you write a report about which boat floated for the longest and why?
Brilliant Boats
  • Use tinfoil to create a simple boat design.
  • Try testing it by seeing how many coins it will hold.
  • What shape makes the best boat?
  • Don’t forget to recycle the tinfoil after using it!
Thankyou for working so hard again this week.  I'll be back with you on Monday!
Missing you all,
Love from Mrs Micklefield
