Good Morning Year 2,
Hope you had a lovely weekend and that you are ready to get back into your home learning!
We just wanted to take this opportunity to direct you to a couple of websites offering reading materials that may be suitable for your child. It is so important that the children keep up with their reading in order to continue progressing. We hope these websites will help with that.
https://collins.co.uk/pages/big-cat-ebooks - This seems to be a fantastic resource. Follow the instructions on the webpage to sign up for free. It allows you access to reading books for every colour band.
Here are your activities for today…
Go onto the Phonics Play website. You can access this on a tablet using the address new.phonicsplay.co.uk username: march20 password: home
Click on phase 5 on the menu that appears at the left hand side of the screen. Practice phonemes and tricky words using ‘phonics flashcards speed trial’ and ‘tricky word trucks’. Then, play the ‘Buried Treasure’ game.
Please see the 5 common exception words below for you to practice reading, writing and putting into a sentence.
Your words for today are: water, find, great, move, again.
Today your focus will be on adjectives. Can you remember what an adjective is? Remember an adjective is a describing word.
Let’s start off with a game of adjective I spy. Think of an object that you can see and describe it using adjectives so that whoever you are playing with can guess what you are describing. E.g. I spy with my little eye something that is green … (Remember you will probably need to use more than one adjective for your partner to guess what you are describing).
Specifically, you will be looking at expanded noun phrases e.g. The fluffy, white cat or The friendly, brown dog. This is when we have a phrase containing adjectives and a noun. Can you spot which words are nouns and which words are adjectives? Parents please feel free to write your own examples and see if your child can point out the noun/adjective.
I have attached a worksheet for you to have a go at. Work your way through the activities. Each one builds on itself to help you become more independent at using expanded noun phrases. Don’t forget to use a comma between your adjectives!
Warm up –
Practise counting in 2s, 5s, 3s and 10s.
Recall number bonds to 20.
Practise 2 times tables – I have attached a ‘space race’ worksheet to help you. Set a timer and see how quickly you can complete the sheet. You could repeat this activity every now and then to see if you can beat your time.
Main Activity –
Today I would like you to continue adding and subtracting multiples of 10 to a 2 digit number. It is important that you are confident doing this before we move our learning on. If you feel you have mastered this, move onto adding multiples of ten to 3 digit numbers. If you do move on to 3 digit numbers, remember to make sure you are writing them correctly.
I have also attached a worksheet requiring you to fill in the missing numbers on a 100 square. Due to the set up of a 100 square this will help you to consolidate adding and subtracting multiples of ten.
Parents – Please check that your child understands the set up of a 100 square before setting them off on this activity. It is important that they understand the numbers go downwards in tens. We have discussed this in school but it could be worth reminding them.
