Good Morning Year 2,
Here are your activities for today …
Log on to Classroom Secrets Kids. Year 2 > Spelling > Year 2 Spelling Game 4.
Today we would like you to have a think about homophones. Homophones are words that are pronounced the same but they have different spellings and different meanings. Today we would like you to look at: there, their and they’re. Discuss with an adult the different meanings. Practice spelling each word and write it in a sentence.
Hope your research went well yesterday and that you found it interesting. Warm up your brains with these questions: Think about the difference between city and countryside. Can you name any cities? Can you name places in the countryside? Why do you think people were evacuated from the city to the countryside? (You could try to locate these places on a map).
This week we were supposed to be going on our train ride trip where we were going to experience what it would have felt like to be an evacuee boarding the train and travelling to a new home. So obviously we can’t go on our trip but we can still imagine the train journey.
Today we would like you to imagine you were being evacuated and write a diary entry about the train journey. Here is a list of things to think about when you write your diary entry:
How you would feel leaving the city behind
How you felt in the busy train station
What you could see, hear and smell on the train journey.
How did the scenery change as you got near to the countryside.
Here is a short video to watch to help set the scene and give you some ideas what it would have been like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPs8hbksOg8
We have searched all over the internet and it is proving difficult to find video clips appropriate for KS1 children. Please feel free to look for anything online yourselves or maybe even just take this as a nice opportunity to discuss what happened with your child.

VE Day Activity
Today we would like you to do an art activity. You have a 2 activities to choose from:
Activity 1 - We know how much some of you enjoy making paper airplanes so we have attached a document containing the outline of a spitfire for you to make. You could even do some research on spitfires if you’re interested.
Activity 2 – Make (draw, paint, etc) a picture of a train full of evacuees heading to the countryside.
Remember to post pictures of what you have been doing on your Dojo portfolio!
