Greenmount -

a Pathway to Success

Thursday, 2nd July

Good Morning Year 2.

Here are your activities for today …  

 

Phonics

Looks like it's another day of rain - we need a break from it!  We need the sunshine to make an appearance.

 

Over the next few days we are going to do some revision.  Today, you are thinking about words that have the phoneme ai and the alternative spellings.

 

Go on a word hunt and complete the sheet investigating the different spellings of the ai phoneme.

 

English

I hope your ice cream shape poem went well yesterday.

Today and tomorrow you will be developing your own ideas to write your own shape poem. Firstly, you will need to pick something to write your shape poem about. I would like you to base your poem on your class’s current topic:

MRS CARR’S CLASS – RAINFOREST

MISS CROSSLEY’S CLASS – DESERT

MRS PARKINSON’S CLASS – ARCTIC

You can choose anything that links to your topic e.g. animal, plant etc.

Once you have chosen what you are going to write about you need to create a mind map of words and phrases to describe your chosen focus.

Then, draw an outline (like the ice cream outline you had yesterday) of your focus, draw lines inside the outline ready to write on and neatly cut it out.

You do not need to write your poem today as that will be your activity for tomorrow.  

 

Maths

Warm-up =  

Problem of the day.

Main Activity

I hope the practical sharing activity went well yesterday.

Today you will be practicing jottings to help you with division. You can use your practical skills from yesterday to help you with this activity.

I have attached an explanation of how to make these jottings however your child should already be familiar with how to do this.

Complete the worksheet.

 

Science

Can you remember which animal groups we have looked at so far?

We have looked at mammals, reptiles, fish, birds and amphibians. Can you remember the characteristics of these animals?

Today you have got a sorting activity to complete. Please find attached animal picture cards to be arranged under the correct headings. If you want to save on printing costs, you could arrange toy animals that you have at home instead.
