Hello Year 2,
I hope you are all well and enjoying your home learning.
I am amazing by the work I have seen on the blog and the photos emailed to me.
We are all so proud of you!
Here are today’s learning activities:
Look at the picture in your learning pack (ship in stormy weather).
What can you see? How would you describe this picture? What adjectives and adverbs would you use to describe it?
Write a short description of what you can see in the picture using the words you came up with.
Review all previously learnt sounds and reading the following words: Sadness, madness, hardness, prove, improve
Read the words: Adding the suffix -ness. High-ness , Cold-ness , Dark-ness
Write the words: Happi-ness Loneli-ness Sick-ness
Dictation: Her highness was filled with loneliness as she sat in the darkness.
Basic Skills – Can you recall the ten times table up to 12×10?
Extension – Can you do it out of order?
Can you answer these questions about fractions?
- ‘Mia has £6 and wants to give half to her little sister. How much does her sister get?’
- ‘There are 20 children on the playground. A quarter of them go inside for lunch. How many are left on the playground?’
- ‘A Science lesson takes 33 minutes. A third of the lesson was on an experiment. How long did it take to complete the experiment? How long was left of the lesson once the experiment was over?’
Can you answer the question in a full sentence instead of just writing a number?
What did you do to find the total?
Warm up: Wiggle your fingers up high, down low, to the side and in front of you.
Stretch your fingers out like fireworks twelve times.
Can you write the following letters joined up? Remember to leave a finger space.
Tick your best one.
Look at yourself in a mirror or at a picture of yourself.
What facial features do you notice?
Where are they on your face?
Draw the outline of your face then one straight line down the middle and one across.
Can you add your facial features and draw a self-portrait?
Can you remember where your ears are in relation to your eyes?
Extension – add colour but make sure it’s appropriate. I don’t think anyone has green ears!
