Greenmount -

a Pathway to Success

Monday, 18th May

Good Morning Year 2!

We hope you had a lovely weekend!

 

Phonics

As you did last week continue using Phonics Play to keep up your letters and sounds knowledge and tricky words fresh.

 

This week part of our focus will be compound words.  Two words that make sense on their own and when combined create a new word. 

 

For example - foot + ball = football

 

On the worksheets you have to match the pictures to create a compound word - circle the correct picture then write the word.

 

I thought it would be easy but some are a bit tricky!

 

English

It's Monday so that means it's spelling, punctuation and grammar!

 
Today you are going to concentrate on writing four sentences of each type -
 
A statement - a sentence that gives information.  Remember to end this sentence with a full stop.
 
A question - when you ask somebody something.  What punctuation do you put at the end of question?
 
A command - telling somebody to do something.  Depending on the kind of command it can end with a full stop or an exclamation mark.  A command usually starts with a verb - if you want to be polite you could start with please.
 
An exclamation - when something has shocked, excited, made you cross, made you happy - and of course we end it with an exclamation mark!
 
Please extend each sentence with a conjunction - and, or, but, when, because, if.
 
EVERY KIND OF SENTENCE MUST START WITH A CAPITAL LETTER.
 
Finally, the most important part of doing any writing is to read it and check it.
Your sentences will be based on the picture provided.
Don't forget you can upload your work to your portfolio on Class Dojo.

Main Activity =

Hope you got on OK with quarter past and quarter to times. Telling the time can be really tricky but the more you practice the easier it will become. Today you will be thinking about minutes past the hour (5 past, 10 past, quarter past, 20 past, 25 past, half past). Please sit down with an adult and look through the minutes past the hour PowerPoint. Practice reading and making these times.

Complete the attached worksheets (please ignore question 1 & 2 on page 3 as they are minutes to the hour times).
