Greenmount -

a Pathway to Success

Wednesday, 3rd June

Good Morning Year 2!

Here are your activities for today …

 

Phonics

As ever, keep having a go at Speed Trial and Tricky word trucks - keeps your phonics fresh!

 

This week our focus will be prefixes - can you remember where these go?

 

Check out Magical Matching https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/6/magical-matching

There is also a work sheet for you to do concentrating on the prefix 'dis'.

 

English

Today, you are going to continue with your letter from the Rainforest, Desert or North or South Poles.

 

I have written the next part of my pretend journey to London.  Get your grown up to read it to you - it will give you an idea of the sort of detail you need to include in your letter about your first day.

 

Part three incoming tomorrow!

 

 

Maths

Warm-up =

Times tables  - Hit the Button.

Please see the attached worksheet with some sums on. Some of them are correct and some are incorrect. Today to warm up your brains you need to pretend to be the teacher and mark the work. If you think the sum is incorrect, you must work out what the correct answer would be.

Main Activity =

I hope you enjoyed your 2D shape hunt yesterday and managed to find something to match each of the shapes.

First I would like you start off by doing another shape spelling test to see if you can beat your score from the other day. Remember if there are any that you get incorrect use the look, cover, write, check method to practice. Here is a reminder of the spelling words: circle, square, rectangle, triangle, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, trapezium, rhombus, heptagon.

Today I would like you to start thinking about symmetry. We haven’t covered symmetry yet in year 2 but you may have heard it mentioned before. Do you know what symmetry means?

Here is a short video to explain symmetry: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/ztpyr82

Today you will be investigating the lines of symmetry in 2D shapes. A good way to do this is by folding paper shapes. If the shape folds perfectly in half and looks the same on each side then the fold line is the line of symmetry. Remember, some shapes have more than one line of symmetry, can you find out how many lines of symmetry each shape has?

For this folding activity, you can either draw around shapes, cut them out and fold them or you can cut out the shapes on the attached worksheet and fold them. We would love to see your symmetry work on your dojo portfolios!

Here are some symmetry games that you might want to have a go at after completing your folding activity:
