We are now back in sync with the White Rose Maths. This week it is Summer Week 2 w/c 27th April and you will be finding halves and quarters.
Year 2 Maths
We are back on-track with our White Rose Maths. Please feel free to recap measurement with your child before beginning the new week’s lessons. If they have forgotten the measurement lessons due to the jump back to fractions, allow them the time to look back at ‘Summer 1 Week 1’, as this week’s lesson move on quickly to the next topic of problem solving in lesson 4.
Remember if you don’t have a printer at home you can write answers on paper. You can also use different real objects to help you, I’ve seen photos of you using all kinds of things you find around the home as counters, pasta, smarties, coins, keep being inventive, keep making maths fun!
Year 1 Phonics
Our focus this week is 'ore' saying /or/.
Year 2 Phonics
Monday’s lesson completes the focus of ‘el’ say /l/, while the remainder of the week’s focus is ‘al’ and ‘il’ say /l/.
Below are this week's activities for English. Remember to complete the spelling lesson first and a spell check on Friday. I have included a writing task that can be done throughout the week, little by little, or over two days.
Year 1 Spelling
This week’s spellings are words with the ‘or’ and ‘ore’ spelling. Watch the powerpoint and then complete the ‘Find the Missing Word’ activity sheet.
Year 2 Spelling
This week, our spellings are looking at how to spell words that end in ‘tion’. I have uploaded a folder with a variety of activities that can support the learning of the spellings but they are not mandatory.
Year 1 Grammar
This week I would like you to look at adding -ed to a word to make new words. I do not expect you to complete all the worksheets, but they do give a variety of ways of adding -ed to make new words.
- #Lesson Presentation Suffixes -ed.ppt
- Activity Sheet Adding -ed.pdf
- Activity Sheet Sorting ed Sounds.pdf
Year 2 Grammar
This week I would like you to look at apostrophes for possession. The folder below has a poster, PowerPoint presentation and four activity worksheets. I do not expect you to complete all the worksheets, but they do give a variety of ways of looking at apostrophes for possession.
Good news, we are able to access Bug Club again!
I would like you to read ‘Adventure Kids: Run in the Rainforest’. Ensure you complete the frontpage activities and the ‘Hotspots’. This will develop understanding around the text and improve reading skills. The last page has additional activities you may want to complete too.
Remember to choose which chilli challenge you want to complete, these are indicated by the number of stars at the bottom of the sheets.
Answer the question, ‘What is a rainforest?’
Here is a Rainforest PowerPoint to help you get started.
This can be completed over the whole week or within two ‘lessons’.
Using research, making notes, creating a draft, and then writing a final piece with illustrations.
You can include
- comparing them to other wooded areas (woods, forest etc.)
- where they are found
- the habitats within them
- the animals found there
- and any other research you come across
You can present it as a poster, booklet or report, and can use a computer or paper to complete it. I look forward to seeing what you create.
Create a description or fact file for an animal that lives in a rainforest. This can include its appearance, how it moves, and where it lives within the rainforest.
Try to include:
- Possessive apostrophes e.g. The monkey’s tail is useful for climbing.
- Expanded noun phrases e.g. Its long, agile tongue helps it catch its prey.
- Interesting verbs e.g. It looks (burrows, forages, rummages) for food in the mud.
- Some of your spellings/ phonics focus words from this week
This week you are going to be scientists by observing plants. Observation is a key skill that scientists use to ensure they understand what is happening around them and helps them make conclusions on what they have seen. Work through the Power Point and observe the flowers and trees in your garden/ local area. There are some questions and tasks you can do while out, which are in the PowerPoint.
As well as the suggestion below, you might enjoy the Lego challenge (30 Day Lego Bible Challenge - Something to Read & Build Each Day), or if you are a keen artist, there is also a competition you might like to enter. Mrs. Watkins has put the details on the ‘Class Pages’ page of the website.
This week’s activity.
Here is another animation of the story of the Holy Spirit.
Watch out for the wind and fire in the story. Can you think of examples of ways in which wind and fire help people?
Think about sailing boats, light, heat. Make a poster to describe how powerful wind and fire can be.
