Try this cool Science investigation so the children can understand how the wings of a plane work. This is linked to our topic (The sky is never the limit).
You will see that the shape of the wing allows the paper to lift when the air from the hairdryer is switched on, just like a plane wing!
PE Challenge in Partnership with the Total 14 Football Academy!
Craig from Total 14 has today set an online challenge to his Academy players which includes White Rock children as he comes in to provide us with our football coaching.
There are 20 football teams that Craig has described only by using emojis. He has not given us the answers yet - so between us do you reckon that we can crack the 20 and send them to Craig before anybody else can?
To help you out, I reckon 14 is New York Red Bulls...
Chat to family, FaceTime your friends and see how many you can get.
Email me your ideas firstname.lastname@example.org.
Feel free to design any others and send them to me and I'll see if I can guess them!
Good Luck from Mr Leaman!

Sunflowers, with their bright petals and strong stems, are well known for being 'happy' flowers. We would like to challenge all Year 2 children to plant a sunflower seed on Friday 27th March and watch them grow.
If you don't have sunflower seeds you can you plant another type of seed and share photos and measurements showing how your plant is growing. Maybe you could plant a seed from an apple, avocado or grape that you have eaten.
It will be fantastic to share photos and measurements every Friday so think carefully about where you plant your seed and what it needs to grow.
We look forward to seeing how they grow.

Why not try this fun Science Experiment...all you need should be available around your home!
Explanation - All liquids have a 'surface tension' which means they can hold a certain amount of weight before they collapse and an object sinks (this is why it can hold the paper boat). When you add washing up liquid to your finger it weakens the surface tension behind the boat and therefore the boat slides forward!
23.03.20 Computing - Technology in Our Homes
Hello. For this task you will need your green book and a pencil.
Joe Wicks will be running live PE lessons at 9am every morning. He is planning to get the nation moving. Have fun Year 2.
20.03.20 - Dance
In Dance, we have been exploring linking different types of jumps to create a dance. Below is the information we used in class to help. Can you use this to try to create a dance on your own? We call this a solo dance. You could get someone at home to film you and then email it to me, Mrs Tyson – email@example.com I would love to see your dances and smiling faces! Enjoy creating your solo dances and I look forward to seeing some of them.
17.03.20 - White Rose Maths - Flashback 4
Below are three powerpoint documents which you may have seen on the whiteboard in class for early morning work. There is a different page each day designed to help your child remember what they have previously learned in their Maths lesson. There will be some Maths images and some calculations to solve, your child is familiar with solving these problems but may need some support to read some of the questions.
