Good morning Year 2! You’ve made it to the end of the week, well done!
We are looking forward to seeing you all back in school soon, but for now we need to keep trying our best with our home learning. There is a little bit of information here that it is important you read, just to refresh yourself on home learning.
1. We will continue to have our live zoom register at 10.20am. Please use the link you used before as this has not changed. If you need this resending, please email us. It is essential you attend this live zoom each morning so that you can say hello to your teachers and friends, and also to find out a little more about the day’s learning. Please bring a paper and soemthing to write with so you can take part in any live learning.
2. It is important you send us your completed work for us to check. You can take a photo of your completed work and email this to us. We can then provide you with individual feedback on your work, and offer any help or support needed. If we do not see your completed work, we are unable to offer praise or help to further your learning with that task. All work should be emailed to:
3. You can also email this address during the day if you need and guidance with the tasks or have any questions about the learning, and we will then be able to help you complete the task. Remember, you can also leave comments on the blog by scrolling down to the bottom of the page. These could be answers to the tasks or questions on the daily blog or you could share your ideas about the learning. We look forward to seeing your work!
Have a great day, and enjoy your home learning!
Miss Battams, Miss Duncan and the rest of the year 2 team.
Look at a text about a famous person talking about their dream job. What was it? Why did they want to do it? What did they have to do to get the job? What kind of skills or characteristics did they need?
Using only four sentences can you summarise the main information from the text? Watch the video below to read the text and to hear it read out to you.
Thinking about all the work you have done on your dream job this week, can you write a piece explaning what your dream job is and why? You need to include what skills and character features you would need, what tasks you would need to complete as part of your job and what you might need to do and learn to be able to do your dream job. Explain how you might feel doing this job. You may want to revisit the text about Miss Battams dream job on Monday’s blog post to see how this should be written.
Your piece should be written in full sentences, with correct punctuation and conjunctions to explain your ideas. You should use phonics to help with your spellings and your work should be presented neatly. In Year 2, we would expect this written piece to be a minimum of half a side of A4 paper. This piece should not be written in just two or three sentences.
Watch the videos below to help with your phonics learning.
Here is your speed read for today.
Watch the following video and then solve the problems on the worksheet.
PSHE / Online Safety
Take a look at this question. Can you think about what you should do and why if this happened to you when you were online?
Write your answer in a full sentence. You can leave your answer in the comments section at the bottom of this blog post to share your ideas with your friends.
Handwriting and Spellings
It is important we continue to practice our handwriting to help us to form our letters correctly. We should also practice spelling our Year 2 words to help us with our reading and writing. You can use these letter formations we use in school to help you form your letters correctly when you practise your spellings. You do not need to copy this alphabet out.
Remember, you should be practising writing these words down on paper and not typing them into the blog comments as this will not help develop your handwriting skills.
1. Warm up your fingers before you start!
Wiggle your fingers up high, down low, to the side and in front of you.
Stretch your fingers out like fireworks twelve times.
2. Can you write the following KS1 words at least four times? Remember to leave a finger space between each one.
3. Tick your neatest formation and be proud of your handwriting.
Reading and Story Time
Here is today’s story read by Miss Battams. It is called The Runaway Iceberg.
We have an online log in which will link to some ebooks that follow our reading scheme in school. These books will allow your child to practice their phonics skills. It is a free resource. You will need to register for a free parent account to access the books. This does not take long to do and is very easy.
Follow this link to log in: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/?selLanguage=en&mode=hub
Go to Oxford Owl for Home and click on enter site. This will give you the option to choose a book recommended for your age or you can choose a book from the colour you read at school. These are all free to read and it would be great if you could read one to someone at home.
