Thursday 28th January
Good morning Year 2! How is it Thursday already? I hope you are ready for another day of learning.
I really enjoyed reading your letters yesterday, you all did a fantastic job. Make sure you email them or go to the post office and post them. If you need any help with this, just let me know.
Start your day by singing along to the months of the year song below.
Your timetable for today…
Have a look at your spellings below. Please remind yourself of the rule and explain to someone in your family why you have to double the consonant. Remember you double the consonant if there is one vowel followed by one consonant. You then need to write your spellings down, write them down once with your left hand and then once with your right hand. I know you enjoy this activity. Why don’t you challenge your mum or dad to do the same?
Now, please spell your spellings out loud to someone in your family. Can you even challenge yourself and spell them backwards? See if you can manage 5!
To start our English lesson today you are going to complete something called ‘Bump up your sentence!’ You might be thinking what on earth is that but watch the video below and I will explain what you need to do.
The dog walked to the park.
The man drank his cup of tea.
Alfie sat on his bed.
|Write the sentence out.|
Write it again with adjectives.
Write it again with an adverb.
Write it again with a conjunction.
Today in English, you are going to create your own dwarf that could be the eighth member of the gang. You need to think of a name for your dwarf and start by drawing a picture of him. Have a look at mine below, his name is Jolly. Watch the video and I will explain what you need to do.
|In your writing, you need to include:|
– sentence of 3
– an exclamation sentence
For your Maths Meeting today, I would like you to try and find 10 different ways to make 20p. Then find 10 different ways to make 50p.
Today we are continuing with our learning on Money. I have uploaded two videos today. You need to watch the first video to learn more about the task that we are completing and then you need to watch the second video to work on the tasks. After you have completed that, I have included a challenge at the bottom. Maths is getting a little bit harder so make sure you ask me for help or let me know if you find it challenging.
Now watch the video to complete the tasks.
Have a go at the challenges below.
For your reading activity today, watch the video below and answer the questions. The questions are linked to VIPERS. Can you remember what VIPERS stands for? Vocabulary, Inference, Prediction, Explanation, Retrieval and Sequence.
For PE today, you will need something you can throw and you need to ask someone in your house to participate in the activities too.
You are going to have a competition with someone in your house. I want you to complete each of the activities below for as long as you can without stopping, see who can complete the activities for the longest.
|– star jumps |
– jogging on the spot
– high knees
– squat jumps
Throwing and catching
It might be a good idea to go into your garden to complete this activity or if you stay inside, use something soft like a cushion or a rolled up pair of socks. You are going to practise throwing and catching. Give yourself two minutes and see how many throws and catches you can complete with someone in your house. If you drop it, you need to start again. Then repeat the activity and see if you can beat your score.
When you have finished, go on toYoutube and complete some of your favourite just dances.
Well done Year 2!
Your learning for today is complete, once again you have worked unbelievable hard. Enjoy story time and the rest of your day. I look forward to receiving your work.
