Good morning Year 2 and welcome to the start of another week of home learning.
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.
- 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 something 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!
Just a reminder that World Book Day is due to take place virtually this Thursday 4th March.
We set you a half-term activity to create your own costume – Miss Kinsella instructed that your costume must be made of recycled materials, e.g. cardboard boxes, plastic bottles, paper, ect.
Get creative and have lots of fun!
Miss Duncan, Miss Battams, Miss Mann and the rest of the year 2 team.
Here are today’s home learning tasks.
Here is today’s Phonics task. We are recapping the sound and spelling patterns from last week.
Below is a video explaining the task.
Here is a copy of the grid.
As this Thursday is World Book Day and you know how much we love books in Year 2 we are going to explore a different story and author each day.
Today we are going to start with David Walliams and his brilliant book ‘The Bear Who Went Boo!’
Miss Duncan has read the story to you.
Listen to the story and answer the following questions in full sentences
- What does the little cub do?
- How do you infer the other animals feel?
- Where is the story set?
- Name three types of animals from the story?
- What is another word for ‘furious’?
Imagine you are David Walliams and you are writing the end of the story but this time something different happens.
In your ending of the story anything can happen.
What happened to the little cub ‘as he entered his snow cave’?
Use your imagination!
Remember to write your ending in full sentences with capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.
Try and use conjunctions and expanded nouns in your writing.
Is it a happy ending? cliff hanger? sad ending?
It is up to you!
Watch the following video and solve the problems below.
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.
- 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.
As we are spending much more time online, it is important we take time to think about how to stay safe when using your devices on the internet.
Look at the following question and talk to an adult at home about it. What should you do?
PSHE – Language of Learning
This week we are going to think about kindness. We talk about ‘kind hand and kind words’ at school.
We agree with what Roald Dahl said about kindness.
Draw around your hand.
On each finger, your thumb and the palm of your hand, draw or write the kindness you have shown people during the last few weeks.
Below are some examples. Remember you don’t have to do something big, little gestures can show kindness.
Here is an outline of a hand if you need a bigger space to write.
Reading and Story Time
For story time today please enjoy another wonderful story from today’s author David Walliams.
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.
Remember to leave us a comment on the blog to share your learning or you can email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing your work!
