Dear Year Two,

 I hope you are enjoying your week. it feels much colder today, but we have been very lucky to have had so much sunshine over the last few weeks.

 

 Today for your English, you are continuing with your 'Elves and the Shoemaker' work. You are going to explore words and do the word classes with Jas. I hope you enjoy designing clothes for the elves, please email me your designs. Don’t forget to label the clothes and use amazing adjectives, eg: soft, long trousers etc.

 

 In Maths you are doing grouping work, as with yesterday make sure that each group has the same number of objects. You can use objects to help you understand this clearly.

 

 Are you enjoying other activities too? I did the Science experiment with objects in my house and the material that was the most stretchy was Blu Tac! I wonder what your results were?

 

 I hope you have a wonderful day,

 

Best Wishes from Miss Dargie

Home Learning for week beginning Monday 1st June.

 

I hope you have all had a wonderful half term. Welcome to term 6!

 

Your home learning continues to be set out so that you have your English and Maths work first and then there are other suggested activities that you can do once you have finished these subjects, if you have time. Remember to spend an absolute maximum of one hour on English and one hour of Maths a day as this is the time we would spend on these subjects in school. Please do your home learning as is suitable for your family circumstances. We appreciate that everyone is doing their best. 

 

As Monday is an Inset day the work this week is set from Tuesday- Friday.

 

English: 

We are going to do the ‘Talk for writing’ Elves and the Shoemaker story this week and next week. The link for this is:

https://www.talk4writing.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Y2-Emma-Elves.pdf

 

I would like you to work on these activities at your own pace. The furthest I would like you to go with this booklet this week is the postcard writing. Don’t worry if you don’t get as far as that I would prefer that you spent time working on each section carefully. You will then have time to spend on your instructional writing and story writing next week. You can write the answers in your English book as you do not need to print the booklet.

This is a suggested plan for English this week:  

Tuesday: Read:The Elves and the Shoemaker’ story and write the answers to ‘Share the story.' Please add detail to your answers. Start to learn your spellings, watch the ‘Bitesize English’ and if time put these spellings into sentences so you use them in the right context.

Wednesday: Write the answers to Pepper’s Questions.

Thursday: Exploring words with Jas, word classes with Jas. Design clothes for the elves. Don’t forget to label the clothes and use amazing adjectives, eg: A green, pointy hat etc.

Friday: Write a postcard from the elves. You could use the template on page 13 or you could fold a piece of A4 paper in half. You could draw a picture of the elves on one side. You can then draw a line down the middle of the other side and write your message on the left and the address on the right side, like a real postcard. You could make up an address for Mr and Mrs Cobbler, for example: Mr and Mrs Cobbler

The shop name:                                                    The Shoe Shop  

The shop number and road:                                    10 Highstreet,

The town:                                                                Hildenborough,

The county:                                                               Kent.

The postcode:                                                             TN11 9AE

 

They can be real or imaginary places.

 

 

 

Reading:

Please continue with Collins Connect and Rising Stars https://my.risingstars-uk.com/Default.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2f     You may also have your own books at home that you are enjoying reading. Please continue to read fiction and non-fiction.

 

Spellings:

 

Please start learning your spellings every Monday and ask an adult to test you the following Monday. This week our spellings are homophones and near homophones. We did work on homophones in class, but we did not learn these as our spellings.

 

  1. there
  2. their
  3. they’re
  4. here
  5. hear
  6. see
  7. sea
  8. to
  9. too

10.two

 

You can talk to an adult about how you would use each of these spellings, to make sure you understand the context in which each of these spellings is used. There are three Bitesize clips that you can watch that relate to our spellings. The link for these are: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zqhpk2p

 

 

This is the link to Phonics Play:

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/    

 You may still enjoy playing the games in ‘Phase 6.’

 

Handwriting:

Please do at least six words a day, writing each one out three times. Please work on our weekly spelling words as well as days of the week, topic words and compound words. It is always worth revisiting the days of the week as you will use these when you date your work. Please do the joined or single letter words depending on your handwriting. The handwriting sheets are in the block below this letter. If you are able to complete the three sheets this week, that would be brilliant!

 

 

Maths: 

We are continuing with White Rose Maths this week. We are working on week 6, w/c 1st June.  

 

The link for the videos for the lessons is:

 

 https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/

 

Please access the worksheets below on our class page. This is revision work on the ten times table, sharing, grouping and odd and even numbers. We have done the White Rose worksheets on these, so I have made worksheets relevant to each lesson. All the questions are different to the ones you have done before. Please complete these as they will consolidate your understanding of these areas. (We would have done this revision had we been in school.) If you finish these quickly please do some online learning.

If you feel you need more practice please do practical work as follows: On Tuesday 10x table card games, On Wednesday and Thursday, keep doing practical sharing and grouping with objects. On Friday, get different numbers of objects and split them to investigate if they are odd or even. The more practical work you do when you are working on your maths, the easier you will find it to understand, consolidate and remember your learning.

 

You can also use this online learning:

Diagnostic Questions:   https://diagnosticquestions.com/Account/Login

Sumdog.com: https://pages.sumdog.com/

TimesTables Rockstars:    https://play.ttrockstars.com/ 

 

P.E:

Please continue with Joe Wicks workouts or a form of exercise every day.

You can also use two websites for ideas:

https://www.kentschoolgames.com/stayhomestayactive

http://yourschoolgames.com/

 

 

These are some further activities you can do: 

You can also do some of the further activities from last week before half term if you did not do them and would like to do them. (This is below our photographs on this page.)

  

Science:

We are continuing our Science work on ‘Every Day Materials.’ Did you enjoy looking at objects and the materials they were made from?

 

 This week you are going to find out how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching by changing the shape of objects.

 

Your Learning objective is: I can explain how the shapes of objects made from some materials can be changed.

 

You will demonstrate four ways to change the shape of some objects by squashing, bending, stretching and twisting them. These are a suggestion of objects you may wish to use:

Play dough (or flour mixed with some water to make a dough), pipe cleaners, tea towel, socks, elastic band, drinking straw, sponge, flannel. You may think of other objects too! Please choose these objects with an adult so you only choose objects THAT ARE SAFE for you to squash, squeeze, bend and twist!

 

To SQUASH an object: Push both hands together,

To STRETCH an object: Pull your hands slowly and gently apart.

To BEND an object: Hold both ends of an object and bring the ends inwards together.

To TWIST an object: Twist your hands in opposite directions.

 

I hope you enjoy this experiment. You can record your results in a table, I have made a template below or you could draw your own table. You may prefer to take photographs of the objects and the different shapes you have made with them by squashing, bending, twisting and squashing them.

 

Extension: Can you find three objects that you can’t change the shape of? Talk about why the shape of these objects can’t be changed.

 

 

Art:

I would like you to do the Oak National Academy lesson: ‘To Create Shadow Art.’. This fits in well with our topic on materials as they talk about materials that are opaque translucent and transparent.

The link for this lesson is:

https://www.thenational.academy/year-2/foundation/to-create-shadow-art-year-2-wk5-5#slide-2

 

I hope you enjoy making your shadow pictures. Perhaps you could make your own shadows using different body shapes when you are outside on a sunny day!

 

Music:

I hope you are enjoying learning a new song every week. You can do this on the ‘Sing up’ website.

https://www.singup.org/singupathome/   

 

PHSE:

Find a plain piece of paper. Draw a picture of yourself in the middle of the page. Around it. I would like you to draw or write all the things you feel you have done well with, or have really enjoyed, during lockdown. What are your achievements? What have you enjoyed doing the most? Is there anything you are really proud of? Perhaps you have made something, baked something or learnt a new skill. Ask your family too, I am sure they have also noticed some amazing things you have done. Perhaps there is something that you couldn’t do before that you can do now. Have you helped people? I think you will be really proud of what you have done when you start to record it.

 

You may also like to continue reading the stories and poems from 'The Book of Hopes.' This is the link to it: 

https://literacytrust.org.uk/family-zone/9-12/book-hopes/

 

History:

Last term we studied Florence Nightingale. There is a video on BBC Bitesize about her if you would like a reminder about her. The link for this is:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zns9nrd/articles/znsct39

 

We are going to learn about Mary Seacole. She was also a very important nurse that lived during the time of the Crimean war.  This week you are going to design a topic cover for you work about her.

This is the link to the BBC Bitesize video that explains who she was: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zns9nrd/articles/zjsxcqt

There is an activity that you can do after the video too.

Once you have watched the video, you can design your topic cover. Draw her in the type of clothes she would have worn. Use the information in the video to choose which other illustrations you would like to add to your design. These are two photographs of her that will help you with your drawing.

 

 

These are a selection of activities and do not all need to be completed.

 

Please email our class 2 email if you have any questions. If you send photographs of your child’s home learning that you are happy for me to add to the website please write ‘photos for the website’ in your email. 

 

Thank you for your continued support with your child’s home learning.

Keep safe and well,

 

Best wishes from Miss Dargie

Tuesday 2nd June

 

Dear Year Two,

 I hope you are still enjoying the sunshine. Welcome back to Term 6. Thank you for all your hard work in Term 5. I hope you enjoyed your learning.

 Today for English you are going to start your ‘Talk for Writing’ about ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ story and write the answers to ‘Share the story.' Remember to add detail to your answers where you can. You can also start to learn your spellings, there are ‘Bitesize’ clips you can watch with these.

 In your Maths you are going to revise your 10 times table. You may have time to do some ‘Diagnostic Questions’ or ‘Sumdog’ afterwards.

 Our additional activities include Science, Art PSHE and History. If you have time, I wonder which you will choose today?

 I am teaching full time in school, so from now on, I will answer emails as soon as I am able to.

 I hope you have a lovely day,

Best Wishes from Miss Dargie

Monday 1st June

 

Dear Year Two,

 I hope you have had a wonderful half term. We have had a busy week. We have been tidying up our garden and we have had some lovely walks.

 I uploaded this week’s work on our class page on Friday. You will see that you are going to be doing some work on ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ story for English. In our Maths we are revising the ten times table and division work. Our new History work is about a very important nurse called Mary Seacole. We are continuing our ‘Everyday Materials’ Science work and you have some Art and PSHE work if you have time to do these. You may also like to add to your ‘lockdown’ diary from time to time. I am sure you will really enjoy looking back at it when you are older. As today is an inset day I have set work starting from tomorrow.

 Please write to our class email, it is always great to hear from you. I answer your emails as soon as I am able to. I hope to see you soon,

Have a lovely day,

Best Wishes from Miss Dargie

Wednesday 3rd June

 

Dear Year Two,

 I hope you are all enjoying the week. Today won't be as hot as it was yesterday, but I hope you enjoy some time outside.

 Today for your English, you will be answering Pepper's questions in 'The Elves and the Shoemaker' story. Please try to use full sentences for your answers. You also have some drawings to do as part of this activity.

 In your Maths you are going to be making groups by sharing. Remember to make all the sets equal in size. If you finish quickly you can do Sumdog or Diagnostic Questions as I have put some new activities on these for this week.

 I hope you enjoy your other activities today. Perhaps you will choose one I have suggested or choose activities of your own.

I hope you have a lovely day,

Best wishes from Miss Dargie

Home Learning for week beginning Monday 18th  May.

 

Well done for continuing to work on your home learning. It is hard to believe that this is the last week of term 5. I hope I will see you all very soon. Thank you for keeping in touch and for letting me know how you are getting on.

 

Your home learning continues to be set out so that you have your English and Maths work first and then there are other suggested activities that you can do once you have finished these subjects, if you have time. Remember to spend an absolute maximum of one hour on English and one hour of Maths a day as this is the time we would spend on these subjects in school. Please do your home learning as is suitable for your family circumstances. We appreciate that everyone is doing their best. 

 

English: 

 

This week we are going to do a variety of activities:

 

Monday: Grammar: You are going to do a Bitesize lesson on ‘Using Conjunctions to join sentences.’

I have made a worksheet to help you with the written part of the lesson. It is below the weekly plan. You can print the worksheet out or work directly from the website as the content is the same.

 

The link for the lesson (which is dated 12th May on the website) is: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6rvbdm

Conjunctions join sentences and they are words such as ‘because,’ ‘when,’  ‘and,’  ‘if’ and ‘but.’

 

 

 

Tuesday and Thursday: Reading Comprehensions (Although we are not taking the SATs this year, this is excellent reading comprehension practice for you.)

 

Tuesday: Please do the first SATS reading comprehension: ‘Little Cousin Clare.’

Thursday: Please do the second reading comprehension ‘Lunchbox: The Story of Your Food.’

 

Both these reading comprehensions are in the same booklet. The link for these is:

https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/711236/STA187960e_2018_ks1_English_reading_Paper1_reading_prompt_and_answer_booklet.pdf.pdf

 

 

The answers to the reading comprehensions are in this booklet:

https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/711258/STA187963e_2018_ks1_English_reading_test_mark_schemes.pdf.pdf

 

The answers to ‘Little Cousin Clare’ are on pages 9-13

The answers to ‘Lunchbox: The Story of Your Food’ are on pages 14-16

 

You do not have to print these out. You could read the comprehensions on your screen and write the answers in your writing book.

 

Wednesday: Grammar: Compound words. Please see the worksheet below to complete this activity. You don’t have to print this sheet off. You could look at it on your screen and write the answers in your writing book.

 

Thursday: See Tuesday,

 

Friday: Diary Writing: Please continue with your lockdown diary. Write what you have done in the last week, since you last wrote your diary. What have been your favourite activities? Where have you been for your walks? What have you seen? Is there anything you have achieved this week that you are particularly proud of? You could add the books you have been reading, games you have played.

 

Reading:

Please continue with Collins Connect and Rising Stars https://my.risingstars-uk.com/Default.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2f     You may also have your own books at home that you are enjoying reading. Please continue to read fiction and non-fiction.

 

Spellings:

 

Please start learning your spellings every Monday and ask an adult to test you the following Monday. This week our spellings are contractions. The last two words in the list are Common Exception words.

 

  1. can’t
  2. didn’t
  3. hasn’t
  4. couldn’t
  5. it’s
  6. wouldn’t
  7. shouldn’t
  8. wasn’t
  9. Mr

10.Mrs

 

We did some work on contractions in the Spring Term, but didn’t learn them as spellings. Can you say which letter/letters are missing from the words if they were written out as two words without the apostrophe? For example can’t = can not. You may be able to include some of these contractions in your writing this week. Also see if you can find any of them in your reading too! Maybe you can find some that aren’t in our list! Remember we are looking for apostrophes for contraction rather than apostrophes for possession.

Please access the worksheets below on our class page. This is revision work on multiplication sentences, arrays and the two and five times tables. We have done the White Rose worksheets on these, so I have made worksheets relevant to each lesson. All the questions are different to the ones you have done before. Please complete these as they will consolidate your understanding of these areas. (We would have done this revision had we been in school.) Remember to use objects to help you with these calculations. When you are doing your times tables remember 5x2 means five sets of two: 6x2 means six sets of 2 etc. You will have the a challenge on Friday, but you may want to use this time to finish your learning on adding or subtracting with exchanging from last week.

You can also do some of the further activities from last week if you did not do them and would like to do them. (Last week’s home learning page is below our photographs on this page.)

  

Science:

We are continuing our Science work on ‘Every Day Materials.’ Did you enjoy looking for different materials in the environment last week?

LO: I can compare the suitability of different everyday materials.

You are going to identify and compare the suitability of a variety of everyday materials, including wood, metal, plastic, glass, brick, rock, paper and cardboard for particular uses, by exploring the purposes of different objects.

 

Using these material properties:

Hard, soft;           rough, smooth;     bendy, not bendy;     stretchy, stiff;       shiny, dull;

 

waterproof, not waterproof;       absorbent, not absorbent;        transparent, opaque; 

 

reflective, non reflective

 

Look at objects in your house, for example a window. Why are window panes made from glass? What is it about glass that makes it a good material for a window pane? (eg transparent, smooth, waterproof) Why wouldn’t other materials be so suitable?

 

You could look at objects such as a mirror, kitchen rolls, a towel, a table, radiators. taps, a kettle, an umbrella, a book, plasticine etc.

 

Activity: Draw an object. Label it with the material(s) it is made from. Label the property of each material eg a towel:    cotton,  soft,  absorbent. You may be able to draw 5 more objects and label them in the similar way.

 

 

 

Art:

Can you make an insect using natural materials? Please follow this link to a lesson on the ‘Oak National Academy’ that will show you how you can do this.

https://www.thenational.academy/year-2/foundation/to-make-insects-using-natural-materials-year-2-wk4-5

 

Other Art ideas are in the section below about making rainbows.

 

 

Music:

I hope you are enjoying learning a new song every week. You can do this on the ‘Sing up’ website.

https://www.singup.org/singupathome/   

 

 

History:

We are completing our work on Florence Nightingale. If you follow the link please read the section, ‘Florence after the Crimean War’ and ‘How Florence is remembered.’

https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/discover/history/general-history/florence-nightingale/

Florence Nightingale told everyone how important it was to make sure hospitals were clean, staff were trained and patients had clean clothing and good food so they got better. As a result of her work hospitals greatly improved.

 

Florence Nightingale was the first woman to be awarded British Order of Merit in 1907. She was 87 when she received it from King Edward VII . She was awarded it in recognition of her service in the Crimean War and for furthering British medicine.

Can you design a certificate for Florence Nightingale to go with her ‘Order of Merit’ badge? (The photo is like the award she would have received.)

An example of this: This  ‘Order of Merit is Presented to Florence Nightingale in recognition of her service in the Crimean war and for her outstanding contribution to British Medicine.’ Presented by King Edward VII, 1907.

You can decorate your certificate to make it look really special. My wording is just an example but you can decide what you would like to write.

 

Rainbows:

 

How many different ways can you make a rainbow?

Ideas:

  1. Blow bubbles and look at all their rainbow colours.
  2. Make a colourful meal.
  3. Use an old magazine to cut out different coloured squares and make a mosaic rainbow.
  4. With an adult squirt water on a sunny day and see the rainbow colours in the water.
  5. A.  Using wax crayons get a piece of card approximately 10cmx10cm.

      B. Colour 10 strips with different colour, 1cm in width, until you have coloured   

          all of the card.

C. Colour thickly over the top of it with a black wax crayon.

D .Using a sharp pencil scratch a picture into it, this will reveal the colours

     underneath.

  1. Finger paint a rainbow with the tips of your fingers to make a dot effect

rainbow.

       7. Use natural materials (or materials/objects in your home} to make a rainbow.

 

 

These are a selection of activities and do not all need to be completed.

 

Please email our class 2 email if you have any questions. If you send photographs of your child’s home learning that you are happy for me to add to the website please write ‘photos for the website’ in your email.

Home Learning for week beginning Monday 11th  May.

 

Thank you for continuing with your home learning, you are all doing so well. I enjoy receiving your emails and photographs of your activities. 

 

Last week’s home learning page is under the section of photographs on our web page in case you wanted to refer to it.

 

As with last week, I have set out your home learning so that you have your English and Maths work first and then there are other suggested activities that you can do once you have finished these subjects, if you have time. Remember to spend an absolute maximum of one hour on English and one hour of Maths a day as this is the time we would spend on these subjects in school. Please do your home learning as is suitable for your family circumstances. We appreciate that everyone is doing their best. 

 

English: 

Diary writing over three days:

 

In my letter to the class on 8th May, I talked about living history; you are going to be part of living history! I would like you to write a ‘lockdown diary’ that you can keep and look back on when you are older. The lockdown is something that has not happened in living memory before (and hopefully will never happen again) so you can write your own piece of history!

You could turn your English book upside down and start on the last page of your writing book, working towards the middle of your book or you may decide to use your own book or paper for this work.

Remember we learnt about Samuel Pepys and how he wrote about the Fire of London? He told us what was happening in London at the time and how he felt. His diary and other people’s accounts and drawings have helped us learn so much about the events of the fire today.

You can write your own diary. These are the types of things you can include: Your name, who you are living in lockdown with. What have you been doing in lockdown? What are your favourite activities? You could include games you have played, books you are reading, your favourite television programmes, baking you have done, art activities etc. You could write why people have been making rainbows and include a rainbow in your diary. What has been hard about lockdown? What are you looking forward to doing after lockdown? How are you contacting other people during lockdown; are you using the telephone, Zoom, Skype? How do the people you know feel about lockdown? What do you see when you go out for your daily exercise?

Remember to use descriptions and use sentences accurately. You may include photos and drawings too. You will really enjoy looking back at this when you are older. I have a diary of a Summer holiday that I wrote when I was eight years old. It is fun reading about what I did and how I felt at the time. It has also helped me to remember things that I might have forgotten.

 

You can decide how you split your diary writing up over the three days. You may choose different areas of the lockdown for different days. It is up to you.

.

I would suggest that you write your diary on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and do Hamilton English on Tuesday (lesson 4, week 6)  and Thursday (lesson 5, week 6)

 

Hamilton English:

We are continuing with the Hamilton Trust English two days this week. Please do ONLY LESSONS 4 and 5 of week 6 this week. (We have covered the work in lessons 1-3 already)

Spellings:

 

Please start learning your spellings every Monday and ask an adult to test you the following Monday. This week our spellings are words ending (or containing)  -tion:

 

  1.  station
  2.  fiction
  3.  motion
  4.  national
  5.  section
  6.  addition
  7.  subtraction
  8.  potion
  9.  option
  10. introduction

 

You could look up the meanings of some of the words that you want to check. Perhaps you would like to put these words into sentences.

 

The website Phonics Play is currently free. This is the link to it:

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/    You may enjoy playing some of the interactive games in Phase 6. All these games are relevant to our learning, so don’t worry about the message about them on the website. It also recommends a website spellingplay.co.uk which you can use for interactive games. These are games you may wish to play for reinforcing your general phonics knowledge and they are fun to play too!

You can also do some of the further activities from last week if you did not do them and would like to do them.

 

Blue Peter:

I enjoyed watching Blue Peter on Thursday. Why don’t you try and get a Blue Peter badge? If you have some already you may be working towards your next one. The details of how to do this are on the Blue Peter website:

 https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/findoutmore/blue-peter-apply-for-a-blue-badge?collection=blue-peter-badges

 

Science:

We are continuing our Science work on ‘Every Day Materials.’ Did you enjoy your material hunt last week if you had time to do it?

LO: I can identify and group the uses of everyday materials. I can record my observations.

This week I would like you to do your Science if you go out for a walk. I would like to look for three different materials : metal, wood, and rock. Can you spot what they are used for?  eg in the metal section you may have cars, door handles, bicycles. Please take a device that you could take photos with. You may decide to look for three different materials to the ones I have suggested, such as glass, plastic and brick. Talk to the adult you are with. Why do you think these materials have been used for their purpose? Would another material have worked for the same use? (For example some fences are wood and some are metal.)

 

This could then be the end of the activity or when you get home you could group the photos together for example on a word document or you could do drawings or write what you have seen on three sheets of paper each labelled with the three materials you have chosen to look for.

 

 

Art:

There are two activities on Oak National Academy I think you will really enjoy. These are:

 

To investigate the colours. This gives you ideas to collect different coloured natural materials and make them into a colourful collage.

The link for this lesson is:

 https://www.thenational.academy/year-2/foundation/to-investigate-the-colours-year-2-wk1-5#slide-2

 

The second lesson is helping you to make a self portrait using natural materials and this is the link to the lesson:

 

https://www.thenational.academy/year-2/foundation/to-make-a-self-portrait-using-natural-or-recycled-materials-year-2-wk3-5

 

I hope you enjoy doing these, they should be fun. If you don’t have access to an outside space you could make these pictures with objects that you have inside your home.

 

 

 

Music:

I hope you are enjoying learning a new song every week. You can do this on the ‘Sing up’ website.

https://www.singup.org/singupathome/   

 

History:

We are continuing with our work on Florence Nightingale. If you follow the link please read the section, ‘Why was Florence Nightingale the lady with the lamp?’

https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/discover/history/general-history/florence-nightingale/

 

Please write in your topic book why she was given that name.

 

You may then wish to make your own Florence Nightingale lamp. You will need glue, scissors, Sellotape, baking paper and string wool or a strip of card to make the handle at the top. You could also use a battery tea light if you want to light it up (or a small torch lit up inside it will work too) if you have one.

This is the link to the demonstration video:

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=how+to+make+a+florence+nightingale+lamp&&view=detail&mid=FB72EDBF63576EBC6AABFB72EDBF63576EBC6AAB&&FORM=VRDGAR&ru=%2Fvideos%2Fsearch%3Fq%

 

Make a shop:

Make your own shop, using your toys or items that you would like to have in your shop. Price your items up to £1, but most prices ranging from 10p to 50p to start with. Make price tags for each item and design a name for your shop. Ask members of your family to take it in turns to be the shop keeper or customer with you and buy and sell the items. You will need a selection of coins for this and you could make your own £5 and £10 notes! You can add up how much your shopping costs and the change you will need. You may be able to pay using the right amount in coins too. As you get more confident with using different coins and notes you can increase your shop prices.

One day you could have a half price sale, so you work out half the price of everything. Another day you could say 10p off everything etc. You could even double your prices another day! You can use pen and paper to add up the shopping or work it out using your mental maths skills. I hope you have fun with this activity.

 

 These are a selection of activities and do not all need to be completed.

 

Please email our class 2 email if you have any questions. If you send photographs of your child’s home learning that you are happy for me to add to the website please write ‘photos for the website’ in your email. 

 

Thank you for your continued support with your child’s home learning, keep well.

I hope you had a relaxing bank holiday weekend,

Best wishes from Miss Dargie

Home Learning for week beginning Monday 4th May.

 

Thank you for continuing to work so hard with your home learning. It has been lovely to receive your emails and photographs of your activities. 

 

Last week’s home learning page is under the section of photographs on our web page in case you wanted to refer back to it.

 

As with last week, I have set out your home learning so that you have your English and Maths work first and then there are other suggested activities that you can do once you have finished these subjects, if you have time. Remember to spend an absolute maximum of one hour on English and one hour of Maths a day as this is the time we would spend on these subjects in school. Please do your home learning as is suitable for your family circumstances. We appreciate that everyone is doing their best. 

 

English: 

We are continuing with the Hamilton Trust English. Please do week 5 this week.

The link for this website is:

https://www.hamilton-trust.org.uk/blog/learning-home-packs/

 

This week you will be doing some work about the story, ‘The Paper Bag Princess’ on Monday and Tuesday, then you have some poetry work on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

 

Reading:

Please continue with Collins Connect and Rising Stars https://my.risingstars-uk.com/Default.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2f     You may also have your own books at home that you are enjoying reading. Please continue to read fiction and non-fiction.

 

Spellings:

 

Please start learning your spellings every Monday and ask an adult to test you the following Monday. This week our spellings are the suffixes -less and -ly:

 

  1.  badly
  2.  hopeless
  3.  penniless
  4.  happily
  5.  lovely
  6.  joyless
  7.  slowly
  8.  quickly
  9.  careless
  10. .fearless

 

The suffix -less usually means there is less of something.

 

The suffix –ly usually describes how something is done or how
something happens.

 

The root word doesn't always stay the same. To add a suffix to a word of more than one syllable ending in –y with a consonant before it, you change the ‘y’ to ‘i’ and add the suffix. This means happy + ly becomes happily and penny + ly becomes penniless.

 

Remember the vowels are:  a,e,i,o,u and all the other letters are consonants.

These are some further activities you can do: 

You can also do some of the further activities from last week if you did not do them and would like to do them.

 

Science:

We are starting our topic work on Everyday Materials.

LO: I can suggest materials that objects are made from.

I would like you to go on a ‘Material hunt’ around you house, you could also go outside if you have a garden.

Please divide two pieces of paper into quarters, label each section with one of these words:

wood, plastic, glass, metal, rock, brick, paper, cardboard.

Have a look and write down/draw items in the right box that are made from that material eg if your table is made from wood, write it in the wood section. If it is metal and glass, you can write it in both sections.

Have a think why objects are made from certain materials eg why isn’t a table made from paper?

 

 

Art:

You may enjoy this art lesson from the Oak online Academy. It is to make texture rubbings from around your house. This is the link:

https://www.thenational.academy/year-2/foundation/to-go-on-a-texture-treasure-hunt-year-2-wk2-5

 

There are so many beautiful flowers and blossom trees out at the moment. Can you draw or paint some Spring flowers or a blossom tree? You may be able to do this outside or find a photograph of some flowers or a blossom tree that you would like to use.

 

‘Imagine’ work:  Linked to our science topic on Materials you could design a picture of objects and material they wouldn’t be made from eg,

Imagine,,, a chair made from jelly. Then draw a chair made from jelly!  Imagine a car made of glass etc. You can have some fun and use your imagination!

 

 

Music:

I hope you are enjoying learning a new song every week. You can do this on the ‘Sing up’ website.

https://www.singup.org/singupathome/   

 

History:

We are continuing with our work on Florence Nightingale. If you follow the link please read the fourth and fifth section: The Crimean War, Florence Nightingale to the Rescue!

https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/discover/history/general-history/florence-nightingale/

 In the Crimean war section I would like to describe what the hospital was like in Scutari when Florence Nightingale first got there. You can imagine you are Florence Nightingale and write it like a diary entry of what she found there, or you could do it like a spider map you could write Scutari hospital then put labels around it like rats running everywhere, soldiers sleeping on the floor etc.

Then you can do the same for how Florence Nightingale changed the hospital by reading the section: ‘Florence Nightingale to the rescue!’

Alternatively you could draw and label a before (when the hospital was dirty) and after (when the hospital was clean) picture of the hospital.

 

DT:

Design your own board game that you can play with your family. You can choose a theme that you really like: football, superheros, fairies, the sea, space, unicorns etc and base your design around that theme. I would suggest a track like game where you have to move from the start to the finish, You could number the squares but on some put ‘miss a turn’, ‘go back 2 spaces’, ‘go forward two spaces’ etc. This will mean it is the luck of the game depending on which square each player lands on as to whether they will win or not. I would suggest the size of an A3 piece of paper so you can spread your design out and so you have enough room for your players to put the counters on the squares. Maybe decide the size of the counters/ player pieces you are going to use before you play the game. You will need about 50 squares if you are going to use one dice to play the game. You can add a wonderful finish based on your theme, for example a football game to finish at the goal, a space game finishing at the stars etc. Don’t forget to name your game and enjoy playing it!

 

 These are a selection of activities and do not all need to be completed.

 

Please email our class 2 email if you have any questions. If you send photographs of your child’s home learning that you are happy for me to add to the website please write ‘photos for the website’ in your email. 

 

Thank you for your continued support with your child’s home learning, keep well,

Best wishes from Miss Dargie

Maths: 

We are continuing with White Rose Maths on Monday and Friday, then we are doing practical learning and number work the rest of the week. As we have covered most of week 2 already we will re-join White Rose Maths for the full week’s work beginning on May 4th. These are the maths lessons for this week:

 

Monday:

Whiterose Maths w/c 27th April Lesson 4

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/

 

Tuesday:

Measuring activity: You will need to use squared paper to help with this activity. Our Learning objective: To draw 2-D shapes accurately in cm.

  1. Draw a square, each side 5cm in length

Now draw 2 bigger squares and two smaller squares and label the length of their sides.

  1. Draw a rectangle, the two long sides should be 8cm in length, the two shorter sides 4cm in length.

Now draw two bigger rectangles (so the long sides are greater than 8cm and the short sides are greater than 4cm) and two smaller rectangles (so the long sides are shorter than 8cm and the shorter sides are shorter than 4cm.)

Challenge: Can you draw some different sized triangles and measure their sides to the nearest cm? You could draw some hexagons too. You may find it easier to draw the vertices first then join them with a ruler and measure them.

 

Wednesday:

LO: To estimate 1-100. Please complete the activity sheet in the word document below  ‘Estimate 1-100.’ You can draw lines in your book so you do not have to print it.

Once you have done this find your metre stick that you made last week. If you have not already done so please market in 10cm intervals, 10cm, 20cm, 30cm etc up to 100cm. (You can then look at your worksheet to see if you have written the numbers in the right place.) Using your metre stick, I then want you to choose some objects in your house that you want to measure (below 1 metre.) Estimate which 10cm mark you think it will be closest too eg 20cm, measure it and record what your answer is eg box: estimate= 20cm, measurement = 30cm, bookcase: estimate 80cm, measurement 90cm etc. You could draw 3 columns in your maths book, at the top of each write: Object, Estimate, Measurement, then record your answers below.

If you have spare time please do some Times Tables Rockstars.

 

 Thursday:

Please complete the work : LO: To reason about addition and subtraction. You can write the answers in your book you do not need to print it. There are different number challenges in this work for you to try.

If you have spare time please do either Sumdog.com or Diagnostic questions.

What would you do to improve your puppet? What would you do differently next time?

 

Science:

To complete our work on habitats, we are looking at food chains, so we can see how different animals obtain their food in the environment that they live in. You can draw a food chain that is on this link:

 https://www.dkfindout.com/uk/animals-and-nature/food-chains/what-is-food-chain/

If you click on each word it will give you information about each part of the food chain, so you can add some of this detail if you would like to.

 

Art:

To link in with our English work you could paint an under the sea picture. On one day you could do the background on your picture, using blues and greens. You could then draw the sea creatures with a different medium such as pens, pencils or crayons, then cut them out and stick them on to your sea picture.

 

Music:

The ‘Sing up’ website has a new song that launches every Monday that you can learn. You can watch the video where you are taught the song and then you can sing the whole song. You may wish to do this with your family. The link for this website is:

https://www.singup.org/singupathome/   

 

Please also keep listening and singing along to music that you enjoy at home. Music is so powerful; it will make you feel really happy. If you have made your own musical instrument play along with that too!

 

History:

Florence Nightingale: The founder of modern nursing and the lady with the lamp.  If you follow the link please read the first three sections: facts about Florence Nightingale, Who was Florence Nightingale? What did she do?

https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/discover/history/general-history/florence-nightingale/

Write a fact page using this information. You can choose how to present this. You could write her name in the middle with the information like labels around it or you could do small drawings with your facts too.

 

Junk Modelling:  

Can you make a junk model of an animal, to link in with our Science work about animals? You can do any animal that you would like to and decorate it with paints, stick coloured paper on it etc. Use any materials that you have at home.

 

Baking:

Can you bake or do some cooking with an adult? It would be wonderful if you could help to weigh out ingredients so you are using grammes. Before you start, find out how many grammes there are in a kilogramme. You could also hold food packets of different weights (their weights are written on the outsides of the packets) so you get a good idea of how heavy different weights are eg 100g, 250g. We will be doing weights in maths later on so this will give you a head start!

 

These are a selection of activities and do not all need to be completed.

Please email our class 2 email if you have any questions. If you send photographs of your child’s home learning that you are happy for me to add to the website please write ‘photos for the website’ in your email. 

Thank you for all your support with your child’s home learning, keep well,

Best wishes from Miss Dargie
