# Year 2 Home Learning – Wednesday 25th March

Wednesday 25th March 2020

Hello Year 2,

I hope you had another wonderful day at home. I was at school today and the weather was beautiful. We were able to spend sometime on the school field. It was lovely and warm.

Here are today’s learning activities:

English

Independently complete the Key Stage 1 English reading paper.

Once finished look through the paper.

Did you answer all the questions?

Did you find any of them challenging?

Which ones and why?

Sounds-Write Phonics

Review all previously learnt sounds and reading the following words – amazement, involvement, assortment, prove, improve.

Maths

Basic Skills – Can you recall the five times table up to 12×5?

Extension – Can you do it out of order?

Can you remember what the fraction ‘a third’ looks like?

What does it mean?  ‘_ equal parts of a whole’.

Look at the pictures below.

Do they represent a third? How do you know? If it is not a third what fraction is it. Prove it!

Handwriting

Warm up: Wiggle your fingers up high, down low, to the side and in front of you.

Stretch your fingers out like fireworks eleven times.

Can you write the following letters joined up? Remember to leave a finger space.

-uo

-ua

-up

-ut

Science

What does ‘living’ ‘no longer living’ and ‘never lived’ mean to you?

Can you think of any examples we have looked at in school during our Science lessons?

Look around your home and, if possible, outside in your garden or outside space.

Can you find any objects that are ‘living’, ‘no longer living’ and ‘never lived’?

How do you know?

Can you draw then, label them and write your responses.

Story

Can you listen to a story?

Relax, get comfortable and show off your amazing listening skills.

Keep going everyone!

We know it’s different and that can sometimes be worrying but we are so proud of you and how resilient you’re being!

Hi
There is no need to email over the reading paper.
Just let us know anything he was successful at and anything he found challenging.
We can add any activities to further support children for next week.

Keep up the good work.

Great job Oscar for completing this. Hopefully it wasn’t too challenging. Just shows how much you’ve done this year as we’ve learnt about everything in the paper. Keep it up! Miss Battams 🙂

Maths
1/3
3 equal amownts of a whole
FROM ELLioT.,

1. “yes because it has 3 equal groups from a circle”
2. “no its 2/3 (supported with this one)”
3. “no its 1/2”
4. “no its a 1/2 because 3 is coloured in 3 are not and there is 6 altogether.”
5. “it is a 1/3 because two of them are not coloured in. One of them is.”

“Living means that you are alive and eat food and plants eat soil and water.”
“No longer living means its dead and and will never come back to life.”
“Never lived means that its never been alive.”

Living Things:
Fish
Snails
Worms
Grass

No longer living
Chair leg because it was wood from a tree
Plants that you have picked

Never lived
Metal
Glass
String

Elliot is going to draw some things he has found and I’ll email it over to you later. 😊

Today we started with PE with Joe again…its getting harder. Then we did some maths- fractions. Then we had art where we made princesses from toilet rolls. We then did the science tasks, we went out side and found bugs, picked flowers and stones and wrote which ones were living, once lived and never lived. We also created a science experiment with milk food colouring and dish soap. And we have just finished the English paper- only 1 wrong and done the handwriting.

Hello Miss Duncan,

I am back to my school work, which i have missed out as i have not been able to use my mummy’s laptop.

Plus i have been in hospital ad i am now home recovering well. Mum is making me still do school work with my bad arm. Some of the words i am typing is with one finger.

Hope you had a lovely Easter and you are staying safe.

Maths

Can you remember what the fraction ‘a third’ looks like? 1/3
What does it mean? 3 equal parts of a whole.
Do they represent a third? YES, How do you know? BECAUSE THERE IS TWO AND ONE IS COVERED UP, If it is not a third what fraction is it. IT COULD EITHER BE A HALF OR 2/3.

Science

What does ‘living’ IF A LEAF IS ON A TREE IT IS LIVING, ‘no longer living’ IF A LEAF HAS FALLEN OFF A TREE AND IT HAS GONE ALL CRISPY AND BROWN THAT MEANS IT IS NO LONGER LIVING. and ‘never lived’ A ROCK HAS NEVER LIVED.

Can you think of any examples we have looked at in school during our Science lessons? YES, YOU HAD A CANDLE AND TRAPPED THE AIR AND THE FIRE WENT AWAY.

Look around your home and, if possible, outside in your garden or outside space.

Can you find any objects that are ‘living’, ‘no longer living’ and ‘never lived’?

How do you know?

YES

OUR PALM TREE IS LIVING

A WORM THAT WAS ON THE GROUND PASSED OUT AND IS NOW NO LONGER LIVING.

CHILDREN’S PLAY HOUSE WHICH IS IN OUR GARDEN HAS NEVER LIVED.
