Burley Primary School

W/C 23.3.2020

Attached below are the weekly spelling, science and forest learning tasks along with a topic web full of fun activities.

Please choose a day to see daily maths, English and reading tasks. Work will be uploaded the day before to allow you time to prepare before teaching your child. 


Forest learning

Week beginning 23rd March 

Here is an activity that you can do with your child outside in your own garden. However following government guidelines on the Coronavirus social distancing you should not go into public spaces to do this activity.

To find the scavenger hunt please follow the link below.

When your child takes part in Forest Learning activities at school they are told not to pick living leaves, plants or flowers as we do not want to encourage them to damage living plants. The children are taught to respect the natural world around them.



Year 2 Science

Week beginning Monday 23rd March

For science this week please help your child to observe a plant or tree in your garden or one that you can see from inside your house. Help your child to record what is currently happening to the tree, for example ‘I can see buds growing. There are no leaves on the tree.’ Your child will also need to draw a picture of the plant in its current state. In addition to this your child should record the weather and the temperature (using the temperature from an online weather report is fine). I have uploaded 2 pictures of an apple tree for you to use if you do not have a plant or tree of your own to record.  

You will then need to look at this same plant or tree once a week with your child and record any changes you notice.


Animals and their habitats

In class your child has been learning about animals and their habitats. To follow on from this please help them to select one animal and research why they are suited to their habitat. This could be done by using the Internet, book or observing any wildlife you have in your garden.

Extension – to select two animals that live in two different habitat and compare them.
