Maths Home Learning – Thursday 3rd December

On Thursday we will be delivering two live Teams lessons again. The first will be Maths at 9:30am. This will be a session about telling the time to the nearest 5 minute interval (to the hour this time)

Your child should have received an invite to this session however if not you can ‘join’ the meeting through the Teams app.

Children will need paper and a pen handy for the session.

Following the lesson, the questions on the sheet below should be answered.  You do not need to print this sheet but the children will need to see it so they can work out their answers.  Try to encourage your child to use the picture of the annotated clock at the top of the sheet to help them.

Also have a look at what our cheeky elves have been up to today.  I think they are trying to remind us all to keep washing our hands.  What a mess they have made!

Both of the elves were named during this mornings meeting.  The elf in Miss Jones’ class is called Buddy and the elf in Miss Newport’s class is called Snowflake.  Two brilliant names for two cheeky elves!

We are all very proud of you Year 2,

Year 2 – Mrs Thomas’s Phonics group (Split Digraphs) – Wednesday 2nd December

Hi phonics group,

Today we will be continuing to practise reading and spelling words using the ‘u-e’ split digraph.

Below is a link to a fun online game. All you need to do is spell a ‘u-e’ word to match each picture that is shown. Good luck!

Top tip: If you are not sure what the picture in the game is showing you then click on the ‘list’ button and it will show you a selection of words to choose from.

How many of the 10 ‘u-e’ words did you spell correctly?

Year 2 Spelling activity – Wednesday 2nd December

Hi all,

Todays spelling activity is the ‘Dice Bingo’ game. Some of you have played this before but some of you haven’t so here are the instructions for how to play.

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

dice game – number words 1-10 dice game – number words 10-100

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

 This one is for Mrs Thomas, Mrs Horler and Mrs Fullerton’s groups.

 This one is for Miss Newport and Miss Jones’s groups.

 

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).

https://www.online-stopwatch.com/chance-games/roll-a-dice/

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!

If you need paper copies please contact the school office.
