Good Morning!

Super work yesterday Year 2! You are really blowing our socks off! Great work.

8:50 – 9.30

SPaG

Today we will be starting the day looking at Adjectives. You will need your Grammar, punctuation and Spellings book and you will need to turn to page 6.

An adjective is a describing word such as colour, size, etc. We use adjectives in a sentence to add more detail.

For example:

The dog went for a walk.

This sentence isn’t very detailed and it just tells me the key information. By adding adjectives we can make this sentence more interesting to read.

The white and black spotty dog went for a walk over the large, green park.

The adjectives in this sentence are white, black, large and green.

9.30-9.55

RWI

Your first task for today is to complete the RWI lesson for Set 3 sound ‘ow’. Click on the link below and select Set 3 sound ‘ow’ lesson.

Make sure you click on Set 3 sounds on the playlists and then on Set 3 speed sounds with Rosie. When you have finished watching the Set 3 sound video please feel free to watch the Set 3 spelling video too.

9.55-10.55

Maths

Today in Maths we are going to continue looking at division. You will need your yellow Maths book and the sheets (available on our class page).

First we are going to look at dividing into equal groups.

To divide cards into 8 equal groups we need to begin by counting how many we have. Next we need to begin by sharing the groups equally into the circles below.

So we have 9 altogether and we are sharing them by 3. So our maths story would look like 9÷3= 3.

Using the information we now have, we can answer the following questions:

How many do we have altogether? This is the total we start with. So we have 9 altogether.

How many groups do we have? This is the number we are dividing/ sharing by. So the answer is 3.

How many in each group? This is our answer after we have equally shared them out. So the answer is 3.

To check our answer we can use the inverse. Inverse means the opposite. The opposite maths function to divide is multiply.

So if we multiply our answer by the number of groups (the number we are dividing by) we should get the total we began with.

This would look like:

9 ÷ 3 = 3

Would become

3 x 3 =9

Now complete sheet 1 and then sheet 2 on our class page on the website. You can either answer them on the sheet or in your yellow book.

10.55 – 11.10

Break

11.35 – 12.25

English

In English today we are going to make a start on a ‘Talk for Writing’ piece of work. This will continue over the next few weeks. You will need your blue book.

Today, we want you to read the text ‘The Magical Teaching Box.’ The ‘Talk for Writing’ book is on our class page under today’s date.

The first activity we would like you to do is complete the tasks during the reading for the text.

Draw what you think the box looks like.

Next, draw or list what you think is in the box.

Then, draw your own evil that came out of the box.

Finally, write what you thought of the story.

When you have finished all of the activities in the text we want you to then draw your own Zeus and label the features.

Features of a character could be how Zeus looks or how he behaves.

For example:

Zeus is Strong.

First of all please watch the videos, by clicking on the link below, all about Chinese New Year.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/chinese-new-year

Today we would like you to learn about and have a go at Chinese writing. We would like you to copy the word on the PowerPoint on our class page all about the names of the year. Please do these in your blue books or on plain paper and make them so we can fit 4 on a page.

Next we would like you to use the alphabet that is attached and have a go at writing your own name in Chinese.

2.05 – 2.15

Another opportunity for us to read more of our favourite story.

2.15 – 2.45

Art – Finish the task from earlier.

2.45 – 3.05

We now have access to Bug Club. This allows you to read a variety of books at the correct book band you are on at school. We have allocated your book bands but once you have read all of the books within your current book band it will automatically move you up to the next one. We can’t wait to see how many book bands you move up.

Remember to start each story by using the read to me button and then read the story yourself. After each story make sure you answer the questions at the back of the book to help with your comprehension skills.

The link for Bug Club is:
