Today, Wednesday and Thursday your focus will be using your research from last week to create a non-fiction book. 

 

You are going to be an author, editor and publisher!

 

Here is a list of things that you will need to include in your book to make sure it is a quality text that your grown ups will want to buy!

 

Front Cover - Title, Name of Author (that's you!) and a fantastic illustration or picture that will make people want to buy it!

 

Back Cover - Blurb, picture and definitely a price!  Better the book, higher the price!

 

Contents Page - the list at the beginning of the book showing what is in each section and what page to find it on - makes it easier for the reader to find the information they want.

 

First Page - Introduction (that will be the sub-heading of the page) - what's this book about - include an illustration, picture or photograph.

 

The following pages - use your research - give each page a sub-heading and include pictures, maps, photographs and illustrations.  Also, get those fantastic facts in there - put them in a cloud or a flash to make them stand out!  The more attractive and eye-catching your book is, more people will want to buy it and read it. A non-fiction text is not like a story it doesn't have to be in a particular order to make sense.

 

Glossary - this is the mini dictionary at the end of an information book - telling the reader the meaning of tricky words or words relating to the subject that people might not have come across before.  In the text they are usually in bold or underlined so that the reader knows they can look them up in the glossary.

 

REMEMBER THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF BEING A GOOD WRITER IS READING AND CHECKING WHAT YOU HAVE WRITTEN - that it makes sense and the speeling is correct! 

 

Can't wait to see the finished product!

 

Maths

Warm-up =

Log on to Classroom Secrets Kids. Year 2 > Maths > Maths Games > Year 2 Count in 3s Game.  

Main Activity =

Start off by answering these time fact questions -

How many seconds are in 1 minute? How many minutes are in 1 hour? How many hours are in 1 day? How many days are in a week? How many days are in 2 weeks? How many weeks are in 1 year? How many days are in a year? How many months are in a year? Name the days of the week. Name the months of the year.

Today you will be thinking about minutes to the hour (5 to, 10 to, quarter to, 20 to, 25 to). It would be best to practice these times before moving on the worksheets as they are tricky times to understand.

Here is a game you might want to play once you have finished your worksheet (play level 2):
