Week Beginning: 6th July "True Colours"

This week we have put together some activities based on one of our favourite songs this year! True Colours!

All of the learning here has a theme of under the sea, rainbows and colours. Perhaps you could try some of these activities and show us your work on Purple Mash! 

Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick - True Colors (Lyrics)

Our favourite Year 2 assembly song to sing together!

The Day The Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt, Illustrated by Oliver Jeffers

Maths: Data Handling

This week, you need to try and complete a survey with the people around you to find out what the most popular colour of the rainbow is.

You should ask all of your friends and family what their favourite colour is and mark their answers on a tally, like the picture here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once you have asked lots of people for their responses, you are going to start to present your results in a bar chart. Show us how many people chose each colour and which one is the most popular!
