Happy Easter Year 2 🐰

You have all worked so hard in your first two weeks of home schooling. We have been so impressed with the photos and work that you have shared with us this week ⭐

It is now the Easter holidays (Yay!) and we think that you all deserve a well-earned break so we won’t be setting you daily Maths and Literacy activities. However, please keep up with practising/recapping your spellings over the last half term (You will find these in your homework book) and aim to read at least three times a week. Don’t forget you can access lots of free e-books using Oxford Owl.                        https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/

Mrs Horler and Miss Rouse will be launching new Times Tables Rock Stars battles, so keep an eye out!

We know that this break from school is going to be slightly different so we have created a list of fun activities that you can do –  without needing to leave your home! Please also feel free to look back on any of the Literacy and Maths activities (particularly online and PurpleMash games) that you have been set over the past couple of weeks – I am sure that you would enjoy playing some of these games again! Remember, there is no obligation to complete these, we just thought they may be useful to have…and fun for the whole family!

Year 2 Home Learning – Friday 3rd April 2020

Hello Year 2!

Here are some activity ideas for you to complete today:

We would usually  do our spelling test today in school so ask an adult to do this for you at home.  You could then email your score to your teacher!

For your last lesson on fractions we would like you to complete the work on equivalence of a half and two quarters.  The video to watch can be found here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ and the worksheet to complete is here:

Maths – Friday 3rd April

Today’s literacy activity is a reading one.

First of all read this eBook called The Bear Who Came To Babysit

https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/the-bear-who-came-to-babysit-ebook-t-e-2548928

(If you cannot access the Ebook from the link above then the text can be read here) The Bear who came to babysit

Then use the text to help you to answer these questions.  If you don’t have a printer you could write the answers out on a piece of paper or in your homework book.

questions

Finally, on Purple Mash we have set you a 2do about your ambition.  What is your ambition? What would you like to achieve?

We have also set some Times Tables games for you to play on Purple Mash.  Or you could challenge Miss Rouse or Mrs Horler to a times tables battle on Times Tables Rock Stars. I wonder who will win?

Please keep up your hard work for one more day – it is the Easter Holidays soon!

We hop you have a wonderful day,

Miss Newport and Miss Jones 😊

Year 2 Home Learning Thursday 2nd April

Happy Thursday! Here are some activity ideas for you to complete today:

For spellings we would like you to create a word rainbow! Write your spellings out in as many different colours as you can.  Share your pictures on the blog!

Well done for all of your hard work on fractions this week.  We have enjoyed seeing your Maths blog posts – please keep them coming! Today’s White Rose lesson is about non-unit fractions.  The video to watch can be found here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ and the worksheet to complete is here:

Thursday – Non-unit fractions

Today’s literacy activity is an adverb quiz found on purple mash.  Remember that an adverb is used to describe a verb ( a doing word).  For example, She quickly ran to see what was making the strange noise, the baby cried loudly when he woke up.  As an extension activity, could you write your own sentences with adverbs in them?

And finally, we would like you to make an Easter poster or poem.  This activity can also be found on Purple Mash.

Keep up the hard work everyone, we are very proud of you all!

Year 2 Home Learning- Wednesday 1st April

Here are some activity ideas for today 😊

For spellings we would like you to play pictionary with a family member. Take it in turns to draw one of your spellings and write down which of the jumping orange words it is.

For Maths, we would like you to continue with the White Rose work looking at fractions. See snippet below for today’s activity. You have all been working so hard on these activities and it’s been great to see your work on the school blog.

Today’s literacy activity can be found on Purple Mash. For this activity you will have to select and match nouns and adjectives. Remember adjectives are describing words like huge, scary and terrifying but nouns are people, places or things. e.g. pencil, school and Paris. If you would like an extension after this, maybe you could describe the picture below using expanded noun phrases with more than one adjective in the sentence?  E.g. The huge, brave lion sat happily on top of the shiny, yellow campervan.

And finally, your afternoon activity is your choice! Maybe you could make chocolate Easter Nests! Or perhaps you could make an Easter card for someone special? Alternatively, we have set an Easter research activity on Purple Mash that you may like to complete.

Best wishes,

Miss Newport and Miss Jones 😊
