Year 2 Wednesday 13 May 2020

Today you are going on a 'school trip' to...... your garden and local area! Don't forget to take a packed lunch and sun cream if needed. You don't need to wear your school uniform but a water bottle is advised ๐Ÿ™‚

First of all I want you to explore your surroundings- close your eyes first of all and think about-
What can you smell? 
What can you hear? 
What can you feel? 
How do you feel?

Then do the same with your eyes open and think about what you can see. Do you feel or smell anything different now that you can see? Can you hear anything different? 

If you can, go for a walk and do the same thing- what differences are there between your senses in your garden and where you have walked to?

Pay attention to any nature, in particular any bugs/ butterflies/ bees/ flowers/trees etc. You may choose to have a mini-beast hunt- remember to put the bugs back though! 

Learning opportunities- 
Keep a tally of how many types of flowers you see/ or how many butterflies you see/ how many worms you see etc. Create a graph of your choice showing your findings. 

How many different numbers can you make out of the natural resources around you- just like we did in PE with out bodies. What shapes can you make? How many different shapes can you see within nature?

Take photos of any nature you come across- have a go at editing the photos if you're allowed or simply try to snap the perfect picture that sums up what 'nature' means to you. You may choose to create a collage of all your favourite things you have found. 

You may choose to do some art work based on what you can see. A still life picture of a flower head or bug. You may do some bark rubbings/ pictures. 

Write a poem about nature and what you have experienced. Think about any similes/ metaphors/ rhyming/ alliteration you can use. 

Make a mandala or dream catcher using twigs/ leaves/ dried petals and any art resources you have. 

Take some time to enjoy the peace and quiet in your surroundings and do some yoga and meditation, thinking carefully about your breathing and focusing your attention to your body. Try to remember some of the activities you carried out with Mrs. Ryder.  Alternatively you may decide to carry out some fitness- a little more upbeat similar to Joe Wickes. 

Read a book quietly in your garden, absorbing the story line and characters, the words used to describe the setting and characters and draw your favourite scene/ create a character profile/ design a front cover. 

Enjoy yourselves! I look forward to hearing all about your day out of school!
