Year 2 Spelling activity – Thursday 21st January

 

Hi Year 2. Today’s spelling activity is a colourful one. You will need 3 different coloured pens, crayons or felt tip pens to write your own Rainbow words.

First, write one of your ‘el’ spelling words in pencil. Next, draw around each letter 3 more times using a different coloured pencil. Do this for each of your spelling words. Do they look colourful?

 

Please email a photo of your work to ‘newdale.year2team@taw.org.uk’ or post on the school website year 2 homework blog. Thank you.

Year 2 Spelling activity – Tuesday 19th January

Hello Year 2. Today we are going to use a drawing of a flower to practise our ‘el’ spelling words.

Follow the instructions below to create your own word flower. Remember, if your flower has lots of petals then you can write your words more than once. When you have finished you might want to add colour to your flower to make it look more attractive.

 

Year 2 Spelling activity – Monday 18th January

 

Hi year 2,

Here is todays spelling activity. Unfortunately something went wrong when I printed out your spellings and all of the letters in each word got jumbled up! Can you help me by unscrambling each word so that it is spelt correctly? Remember that you only need to do the sheet that matches your number of spellings for this week. If you are unsure which one to do then just send us an email and we’ll remind you.

Good luck my helpers!

Year 2 Spelling activity – Thursday 14th January

Hi all,

Todays spelling activity is the ‘Dice Bingo’ game. Most of you will have played this before but here is a recap of how to play just in case you’ve forgotten.

1) Print off a bingo board for each player (each player’s board looks the same).

Remember to choose the board that matches your number of spellings for this week.

2)Take turns to roll the dice (if you don’t have a dice then I have attached a link below to an online one).

3)Whichever number you roll, you read the word next to that number on your board, highlight it or colour it in and then copy the word on the line underneath. It is then the next players turn.

4)If you roll a number that has been rolled before then read the next word along on the same line.

5)The winner is the first person to colour a line going either across or down. Remember to shout BINGO!

Please email a photo of your work to ‘newdale.year2team@taw.org.uk’ or post on the school website year 2 homework blog. We’d love to see who won!

 

Year 2 Spelling activity – Wednesday 13th January

  

Hi year 2.

Today’s spelling activity is a fun game of ‘Snakes and Ladders’…but with a twist! Play it like the normal Snakes and Ladders game (going up a ladder when you land at the bottom of it and going down a snake when you land on it’s head) but also, when you land on a space you have to:

  1. Read the word aloud.
  2. Say the word in a sentence.
  3. Cover it and then spell it aloud.

Wow, lots to do before the next player gets a turn!

Remember to chose the game board that matches your number of spellings for this week. Also, I’ve attached a link to an online dice if you need it.

Year 2 Spelling activity – Tuesday 12th January

 

Hi year 2,

Here is todays spelling activity. Can you find all of the homophone words in the wordsearch? Remember that you only need to do the wordsearch that matches your spellings for this week. If you are unsure which one to do then just send us an email and we’ll remind you.

Homophones wordsearch – 6 words Homophones wordsearch – 11 words Homophones wordsearch – 8 words

When you have found them all, have another go at ‘Look, cover, write, check’ like you did yesterday. Were you better today? Did you spell more right this time? If not, don’t worry, just keep trying.

 

Please email a photo of your work to ‘newdale.year2team@taw.org.uk’ or post on the school website year 2 homework blog. Thank you.

Year 2 Spelling activity – Monday 11th January

Hi all, today we are going to practise reading and spelling our homophone words.

First print and cut out the homophone word cards that match your spellings (or make your own if you prefer).

Homophones flashcards – 11 words Homophones flashcards – 8 words Homophones flashcards – 6 words

Game 1: Lay all of the cards out on a table face down…no peeping! Take turns with another member of your family to pick up a card and read it. If you read it correctly first time you get to keep it, if not, put it back on the table and better luck next time. The winner is the person with the most cards at the end.

Optional Game 2: Print/make 2 sets of cards. Lay them in two separate groups face down on the table and play the ‘Pairs’ game – choose one card from each set, if they match and you can read them, then you get to keep them. If they don’t match you have to put them back on the table. Winner is the person with the most sets.

Activity 1: ‘Look, cover, write, check’ – ask an adult to show you one of the flashcards for 5 seconds, they then hide the card while you write the word. Now check. Are you right? If you made a mistake, then be the teacher and correct it.

Remember to have fun while you learn!
