Welcome back Year 2!
I hope that you all had a lovely break! What a week of glorious sunshine we had! I am sure that your Runner beans must be 10 feet tall at this stage. I hope that you are all well-rested and ready for this half-term of learning!
This half-term our blog will be slightly different as I am back in the classroom with the children who are attending school. We will still have our daily class blog and I will upload your English and Maths activities there. You will see that we have 2 new blogs where you will find your Religion and Curriculum learning for the week. This week in RE you will be focusing on our school’s patron saint – St. Paul VI. Our Curriculum focus for this week is ‘Viewpoints’. There are many activities uploaded here and I would like you to try one of them a day.
We will have a special Celebration Blog each Friday where I will share all your fantastic learning and the beautiful photographs you email me. Please continue to share your wonderful learning with me! I love hearing from you and seeing how you are doing with the learning activities set! I will endeavour to answer your emails as quickly as I can. You know where to find me … firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a wonderful day!

In the early hours of the morning, when then sun was barely peeking its head over the trees that surrounded the lagoon, he lay there. Waiting.
The vast creature slid through the water like a partially submerged submarine, the majority of its bulk hidden beneath the green-tinged water.
It was a calm morning, and so the shiny surface of the lagoon reflected its surroundings like a window; a window that showed the true beauty of nature for those who looked into it. However, despite its beauty and serenity, the atmosphere in this place could suddenly change. Power, panic and noise could put an end to the peace. The vast creature waited… He had seen something…
Answer the following questions below.
What is the creature in the lagoon?
What is a lagoon?
What is the creature waiting for?
In what way is the surface of the lagoon like a window?
What other creatures might there be in the lagoon?
What makes this animal dangerous, do you think?
Imagine you can see all of the animal. Draw what it would look like out of the water?
