Good Morning!

Super day yesterday Year 2. Great job!

8:50 – 9.30

Comprehension

This morning we would like you to get your comprehension book out and complete page 15 ‘Reindeer’ and page 16 ‘The Tower of London.’

Remember in class we read the text twice before looking at the questions. Once you have read the text twice move on to the questions and highlight or underline the answers in the text.

9.30-9.55

RWI

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

In Maths today we are continuing with our new unit of ‘Shape.’

Today we are going to continue looking at 2D shapes and their properties. We are going to concentrate on regular and irregular shapes.

Regular shapes have sides that are all equal and angles that are all equal.

An angle is the area of a turn. When we are talking about angles in regular shapes we are looking at the angle within the shape from one side to the next.

For example, a square has 4 equal sides and 4 angles that are equal.

.

An irregular shape has sides and angles of any length and size.

For example, a rectangle is an irregular shape as it has 2 sides which are longer than the others. The sides are not the same size.

We would like you to click on the worksheet on our class page and read the clue and draw the shape to match. Remember to use your ruler.

Once you have finished, if you have time, draw your own regular and irregular shapes.

10.55 – 11.10

11.35 – 12.25

English

In English today you will need your Grammar, punctuation and spelling book. We will be working through page 9 together. It is all about staying in the same tense.

We going to look at past and simple present tense.

First we are going to look at present tense.

Tell the person at home about some of the things you do every morning before school.

E.g. I get up.

I walk downstairs.

What verbs did you use in the sentences you said aloud to your partner?

Remember a verb is an action/ doing word.

In my examples the verbs are get and walk.

These verbs are in the present tense. You use present
tense verbs to talk about the things you do now and on a regular basis. The simple present tense is used to describe something which is true at this moment in time.

Now let’s have a look at past tense.

Talk to the person at home about the things you did last weekend.

E.g. I listened to my favourite music

I played in the garden.

They are using the simple past tense. Simple past tense tells us something that has already happened and is in the past.

The verb (action/ doing word) ends in ed (most past tense verbs end in ed) and is telling us something that has already happened.

In my examples the past tense verbs are listened and played.

Let’s have a look at the changes between simply past and present tense.

 Simple Present Tense Verbs Simple Past Tense Verbs brush walk play brushed walked played

We would now like you to have a go at the two worksheets on our class page. Complete page one first which is all about sorting the sentences into past and present and then move on to page two which is all about writing the sentences using the correct tense.

12.25 – 1.25

Lunch

1.25 – 2.05 (this task will continue at 2.20)

Computing

This afternoon we well be continuing with algorithms in computing. Remember an algorithm is a set of instructions.

Today we are going to use the link below.

This game is all about getting a puppy called Pixel home. You have to create algorithms to get him home. The higher the level the harder the task to get him home.

2.05 – 2.15

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

2.15 – 2.45

Computing – 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.
