Good Morning Year 2,
Hope the activities went well yesterday!
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 ‘Dragons Den’ 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: kind, break, prove, half, mind.
Today we will be continuing working on adjectives. First, can you tell someone what an adjective is?
We have attached an adjective board game for you to have a go at. Roll a dice. Say an adjective that has a similar meaning to the adjective you have landed on. You can play the game before or after you have done your activity.
In your activity today you need to circle the adjective in the sentences at the top of the page. Parents – If your child is struggling to identify adjectives please spend more time on this. You could write your own sentences and ask them to find the adjectives.
Warm up –
Practise counting in 2s, 5s, 3s and 10s.
Recall number doubles.
Practise 5 times tables – I have attached a ‘space race’ worksheet to help you. Set a timer and see how quickly you can complete the sheet. You could repeat this activity every now and then to see if you can beat your time.
Main Activity –
If your child still hasn’t mastered adding tens to a 2 digit number please keep this ticking over!
Today, you will be adding a 2 digit number to a 1 digit number. You will most probably be able to do this mentally. However, as we have discussed multiple times in school it is so important to check your answers – We don’t want to be getting the easy ones wrong do we?!
When you complete the worksheet I would like you first to add the two numbers mentally. Then, draw base ten (like we always do in school) to check your answers.
Parents - your child should be used to drawing base ten in school and should be able to explain how to do this. Why not give them the opportunity to teach you? I’m sure they’d enjoy showing off their skills!
If for some reason they are having a mind blank I have attached a document (trying!) to explain how we use the base ten. Hope it helps!!
