Good morning Year 2! Well done for reaching the end of your second week of learning at home. We’ve really enjoyed seeing your work again. Watch out for a special post a bit later to celebrate all your hard work!
MIss Battams and Miss Duncan 🙂
Here are today’s learning activities:
Reading – Read the famous poem below.
What do you notice about the poem? Why do you think the author chose to write this poem in the way he has? What do you think of the poem and why?
Writing – Write a story about the picture below. It should include a setting description, some information about your characters, expanded nouns, conjunctions (so, but, because, and, or, if , when) verbs (running) and adverbs (quickly). Remember to try to stick to past tense or present tense endings for your word endings and sentences. You should use as much interesting and exciting vocabulary as you can to hook your reader into your story.
Expanded noun: describing an object, person, place – I entered the gloomy forest
Conjunctions: Joins two sentences together to make a longer sentence with more information – The wood was gloomy but I wasn’t frightened.
Verb: Action word that tells you what is happening – I was running through the forest.
Adverb: Tells you how the verb is being done – I crept silently
Review Read the following Year 2 words – eye, move, clothes, last, pass
Read the words: pension, passion, session
Write the words: suspension, expression, extension
Speed read: How many of these words can you read in a minute? They all have one of the two spelling patterns from this week.
Position, mention, location, television, passion, description, station, session, opposition, direction, pension, detention
Basic Skills: Have a go at the times tables below. How can you re-write some of them to make them easier to solve? We’ll give you a clue it starts with the letter C!
Challenge: Can you write these as division number sentences?
Something a little different today! Can you complete this maths scavenger hunt? Remember to share what you found with us either in the comments or by email. We can’t wait to see what you find.
Warm up: Wiggle your fingers up high, down low, to the side and in front of you.
Stretch your fingers out like fireworks seven times.
Can you write the following Year 2 words joined up? Remember to leave a finger space.
Tick your neatest formation and be proud of your handwriting.
Can you make an Easter card? This could be for somebody at home or maybe for a member of your family you can’t visit at the moment. There are lots of great ideas online or you may have a few of your own. Here’s a few simple ideas to get you started. You don’t have to have lots of craft resources at home for this task. Whilst you are doing this, try to think about why Easter is a time of celebration to Christians.
To maintain your healthy lifestyle we would like you to do some form of exercise every day.
