Good morning Year 2! I hope you are all okay and are managing to enjoy some of this great weather we are having! I have another set of challenges for you from me, Mrs Beaumont and Mrs Midgley! We are all loving the work we have seen on the Facebook page so keep showig us what you've been up to!
We are living in a very important part of history right now and in the future I’m sure everyone will think back and remember this. It would be great if you could start to write a diary about what you’ve been doing and how you're feeling during the day. You don’t need to fill this in every day but it might be nice to add to it a couple of times a week.
In 2040 when you’re all 27 you might look back and read about what you did when we were all superheroes fighting this virus!
Phonics and Spellings:
Can you get your parents to give you a spelling test like we normally do on a Friday. See how many you can get right!
Practice using money!
If you can use real coins to add up some amounts of money or work out change then have a go! Set up a shop in your room or outside and test your parents!
If you can’t do that have a look at some of these interactive games.
The units of music we have looked at so far this year are African, rock and reggae. The next unit we were going to look at links to friendships.
Your first music challenge is to listen to ‘You’ve Got a Friend In Me’ from Toy Story and ‘Count On Me’ by Bruno Mars. Can you list all the instruments you can hear in both – remember that voices are instruments too! And can you clap the pulse to both songs?
Good luck and have a wonderful day!
Good Morning Year Two! Mrs Burton, Mrs Midgley and I have loved seeing all of your wonderful work at home so far. Please reply to this post with any photos or comments from today. We can't wait to see how you get on. Here are your latest set of challenges:
Have a ‘phonics disco’. Write words containing this week’s sounds (ar, ou/ow, er) on different pieces of paper and place them around the room. Play some music and have a grown up stop the music every now and then. When the music stops, read the word you are nearest to. Make sure you help your grown up tidy up afterwards and recycle the paper.
Watch the BBC Super Movers video about syllables and join in with the actions on https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-english-syllables-with-joe-tracini/znt4nrd.
Play the interactive syllables game on https://www.roomrecess.com/mobile/SyllableSlurp/play.html
Who has the most syllables in their name in your family? Who has the least? Don’t forget your pets!
Can you practice your measuring skills? Use a ruler to see if you can find an object in your house which is 10cm long? 20cm long? 30cm long?
Can you carefully draw some lines of different lengths and challenge a grown up to measure them. Can they do the same for you?
Create an obstacle course in your house or garden. Try to include something to climb over, climb under, jump off, throw, dodge and a turn. We would love to see some photos of these.
Hello Year 2! Here are some further challenges to keep you busy....should you choose to accept! 💪 ⭐️
English- Can you write a description of the alien character in the photo below? Think about looks, personality, likes and dislikes, etc. Use your imagination!
Maths- In class, the children complete their ‘Learn Its’ sheet each week. In Year 2, we see how many questions we can answer on the sheet in only one minute! Following the link below, see if you can spot your child’s current level/steps- they may be able to tell you the level they have been working on in class (or simply choose a sheet and have a go if they’ve forgotten! It doesn’t matter!) How many can you complete in one minute? Can you answer the remaining questions at your own pace? These are displayed as a PDF and could be printed, or simply copy out the questions.
(Or see also the year 2 section of our school website)
Phonics/spelling- Please continue to practice this week’s spellings.
Can you write us a list of 10 ‘real’ and 10 ‘nonsense’ words containing the sound ‘er’? For instance, ‘ladder’ and ‘fiffer’!
Physical- Choreograph a dance to your favourite song!
Or, leading on from our work on World Down Syndrome day, share with your family any Makaton signing you have learnt, or investigate Makaton signing to your favourite songs. See here for example Katy Perry’s Roar video with Makaton signing on YouTube. (Use YouTube only with an adult).
Well done everyone so far
