Good Morning Year 2,
Hope the activities went well yesterday!
The weather has been beautiful over the last couple of days – I hope you are all managing to get out in your gardens to enjoy the sunshine.
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 ‘Picnic on Pluto’ 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: hold, path, busy, poor, told.
Today you will be focusing on comprehension.
Please see the attached worksheet. Look at the picture and discuss what you can see and what is happening before you start answering the questions.
Warm up –
Count in 2s, 5s, 3s and 10s. Quick recall of number bonds to 10 and 20.
2, 5 and 10 times tables.
If you are struggling with any of these warm up activities, you should ensure you focus on them alongside the provided activities.
Main Activity –
Today you will be focusing on adding multiples of ten to a 2 digit number.
Parents please discuss with your child that there is no need to count on fingers to calculate the answers to these types of questions. They can simply count in tens to calculate the answer. Help them recognise that the tens digit changes but the ones doesn’t.
Practise some questions together first e.g. 34+10, 63+30, 21+50 …
Then complete attached worksheet independently.
Remember to keep practicing how to tell the time Year 2! You were doing amazingly well with the constant practice at school. You should aim to spend at least 15 minutes on this every day.
As we always do Science on a Thursday, we have set you a science activity to do at home today. At school we had only just started our science topic on plants. We have been looking at the different parts of a plant (roots, stem, flower, leaves) and the job that each of these parts do.
Before you start your science activity, why not impress your mum or dad by telling them everything that you already know about plants.
Your activity for today is to go for a walk around your garden. What plants and flowers can you see? Can you name them? Count how many of each flower there are. Then draw a picture of each flower you can see, name them and label the different parts. Enjoy the fresh air!
Have a lovely day!
Miss C and Mrs P
