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!

Easter Family Fun

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to say a huge well done for making it to the end of term and all of the hard work you have been doing at home. The Den staff are all so proud of you!

We will not be setting formal work for the next two weeks but feel free to choose from any of the family fun activities below:

  • Have an egg hunt around your house or garden.
  • Base some Easter cookies or cakes- see Evie’s photographs for inspiration!
  • Hold an egg race against your family- who is the winner?
  • Watch an Easter film (e.g Hop).
  • Build a Den inside or outside.
  • Have some egg-speriments (egg experiments) how high can you drop an egg without it smashing? What can you find around your house to protect it from damage?
  • Eat chocolate!

As ever, don’t forget to save your photographs to the school blog- we love to see what you are getting up to.

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!
