Greenmount -

a Pathway to Success

Thursday, 14th May

Good Morning Year 2!

Hope you are all well and continuing to work hard.

 

Phonics

Throughout the week, if you can, go onto Phonics Play and access the Speed Trial game for phonemes, digraphs and trigraphs up to Phase 5 - remember the alternative sounds if they have them.

For example - ea can make the sound ea for read, ea for bread.  Also play the Tricky Word Truck game to help you with reading and spelling all words up to Phase 5.  Challenge yourself to beat your time each day.

 

Continuing the work of suffixes, today you have an activity investigating these suffixes - ful, ly, ment, ness and less.  Most of the time you just add the suffix without changing the root word but sometimes you may need to apply the change rules!

 

English

 

Today we want you to continue with your research of the world area for your class but also find two amazing facts about it.

 

I have found out a couple of amazing facts - there is NO LAND at the North Pole, it is covered in a thick layer of ice!  If you want to find a meteorite go to Antarctica!

 

Well, who knew?!

 

Keep your research safe - you'll need it next week.

 

Maths

Warm-up =

Click on the following link – work through the 3 times tables activities.

Main Activity =

Hope the activity went well yesterday. Remember to keep practicing your recall of the days of the week and months of the year if you found them at all tricky.

Today you will be refreshing your memory of o’clock and half past times. Can you remember what the minute hand points to for o’clock / half past times? First practice reading and making o’clock and half past times with somebody in your house. You can either use a toy clock if you have one or click on the following link https://www.visnos.com/demos/clock .

Please complete the attached worksheet drawing hands on the clocks and writing the times. Remember to think carefully about the length of your hands – one hand should be shorter than the other.

As this should just be a recap rather than new learning we have also attached some challenge questions for you to complete. Try to do this activity independently and check your answers with an adult once you are finished.

 

Science

You will now start thinking about different ways that we can group animals.

First, we will start by grouping animals based on what they eat. We can group them into carnivores, omnivores and herbivores. Research what each of these terms means. There is a PowerPoint for you to run through before completing the activity and a nice video on the following link. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv/articles/z96vb9q

Complete the sorting activity. You might be best making a larger Venn diagram so you can fit all of the animals in opposed to using the one provided on the worksheet.
