Greenmount -

a Pathway to Success

Thursday, 21st May

Good Morning Year 2!

What a beautiful day it was yesterday! We hope you all managed to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. We hope you are all continuing to work hard and cope with the work that we have been setting for you. Next week is half term which means you’ll get a week off from us giving you any work. So you need one last big push on these last 2 days of work and then you can take it easy for a week.

 

Phonics

Same routine as Tuesday and Wednesday - daily practise on Phonics Play - Tricky word trucks and Speed Trial - all of Phase 5. 

Last day of compound words - complete the sheet provided.

 

English

Today, you can continue with your non-fiction book.  Don't worry if you don't complete it this week - you can always finish it next week if you get fed up during half term!

 

Maths

Warm-up =

Name the days of the week / months of the year in order as quick as you can.

Recall number bonds to 20.

Main Activity =

Today we have set you some challenge questions to complete based on telling the time.

If you haven’t quite understood all of the times yet, there is no pressure to move on! Please work at your own pace 😊 For those of you who need some more practice on this topic we have attached 2 worksheets similar to yesterdays for you to work through.

 

Science

Last week we started looking at ways we can group animals and began by grouping them based on what they eat.

We can also group animals based on the type of animal they are e.g. mammal, reptile, amphibian, fish, bird etc and this is what we will be focusing on over the next few weeks.

Today we would like you to research what characteristics an animal must have to fall into the mammal category and research specific animals that fall into that category. Try to also consider whether each animal is carnivore, omnivore or herbivore. You could present your findings on a poster or use your computing skills to put something together. Keep all of your research together as the next few science lessons will build on each other. We have put some links below to start you off with your research. Remember to post you work on your portfolio – we are looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
