Science Challenge

Our last science challenge of the term is linked to the Summer term topic of Living Things and Their Habitats.

Have a look at this link to learn about food chains. Watch the video.

  • Food chains usually start with a plant. We call plants producers because the produce (make) their own food.
  • Consumers are living things that eat other things- they consume other things, they eat other things.
  • Prey is an animal that is hunted and eaten by another animal. Prey is eaten by a predator.
  • A predator is the animal that hunts or seeks out other animals to eat. Predators eat prey.

Next, follow this link to make your own food chains. Remember, the arrow means `is eaten by.’

In each chain you make, can you identify the producer and the consumers? which are predators and which are prey?

Keep up the super learning at home Year 2 . Mrs Sharples 🙂

Over the weekend we went to the zoo and saw lots of different monkeys.

Here are some facts about monkeys.

Monkeys can understand written numbers and can even count! It’s thought in rare cases some even understand multiplication.

Monkeys are found almost everywhere on Earth, except for Australia and Antarctica.

New World monkeys have a patch of bare skin on the tip of their tails that acts like a human fingertip. It is sensitive to touch and has a super grip.

The word of the week is MINDFUL!

To be mindful is to be attentive and aware of something. Focusing on the present!

Have a think about these questions this week:

Think of 5 things you are most grateful for in your life right now.

Close your eyes – what can you hear? smell? feel? taste? touch?

What emoji would you pick to describe how you feel today and why?

End of Year Challenge Time!

I’ve had a look back through the scores over for the last year and the highest score was a massive

65,584 points

achieved by Year 4 Green back in March 2020 just before Lockdown.

This weeks battle will run until Friday 17th July which is the last day of term, giving you two weeks to try and beat the score. The class that manages to beat or even come close to this score will receive a TT Rock Star pencil each on their return to school in September.

Let the final battle commence…….
