Good morning everyone!
So, it's the end of week 2 - well done for everything that you have achieved in the last few weeks!
Today, all I want you to concentrate on is Mathletics - I've made sure everyone has enough activities to keep them going, and girls, this is your time to shine!
Everything else today is going to be you beginning to look into your Holiday Project! Next term Year 2 are learning all about World War 2 and what it was like to be a child living in wartime. I've attached a document with some ideas, but as with your projects about the Victorians, feel free to use your imaginations!
Have a fantastic day,
Good morning folks!
I absolutely loved seeing everything you did yesterday! I've also loved seeing your Easter competition entries - if you have made one but have not yet sent it through, please make sure you do so by the end of today.
Today, we are finishing Book One! Wow, well done. Work through the last three reading activities on Slippers in School?, the Selfish Giant, and The Monkeys and the Crocodile.
Watch the video here and answer the following word problems!
Mr Sharma has got all the pencils he needs, but he also wants some paper. He has 3 packets of paper, and in each packet there are 10 pieces of paper.
How many pieces of paper is that in total?
There are 30 children in his class and each child will use 2 sheets of paper. How many pieces of paper is that?
How many packets of paper will he need?
Each packet of pencils will cost £2. Each pack of paper will cost £3. How much money will Mr Sharma spend?
Today we are going to combine music and PE. The following clips are set to a piece of classical music and have a dance to go with the music...and that music and dance are both themed around the 4 elements, Earth, Wind (although they call it 'air'), Fire, and Water! Choose the video that represents your school house and follow the dancer as best you can. If you would like an extra challenge, find a modern song that goes along with your house (I've included some examples for Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water here) and create your own dance!
Have a fantastic day.
It's April Fools day!
My favourite April Fool story is when the BBC made a TV clip on a very serious programme called Panorama and said that they had found trees that grow spaghetti! Spaghetti is really a type of pasta that people make with a dough, but they had draped it over some trees and told people that it was grown by putting a small bit of spaghetti in a tin of tomatoes and your spaghetti tree would grow. More recently, a train company said that they were opening a carriage on their trains - I'd like to be on that train!
I’m loving seeing you guys joining in with yoga! Hope you are finding it calming and focussing. I also loved how many photos I received of you looking at nature, or finding your stone and making minibeasts! They looked great.
Read the Flat Stanley story and the fact files on Animals.
Also try and find time to read with someone – an adult or child.
Find the pages in your Maths Workout books on Fractions – pages 17, 18, and 19. See if you can answer the questions on your own. If you struggle, see if there is a lesson video on the White Rose Maths page to help you.
Watch this video and choose one (or more, if you’d like) of these ideas to do:
I can't wait to see what you all get up to today!
p.s. Girls, we have 620 points, and the boys have 5,584! We need to get on and win this week!
Good morning Year 2!
In comprehension book 1, complete the comprehension activities on Sports and Habitats.
As with yesterday, look at the White Rose Maths - week 1 lesson 3 on finding a half. Follow the videos and activities.
Either look out of the window or if you are going on a walk today, look out for signs that spring season is beginning. I've added some examples and see how many you can see! Try to find a pebble, bring it home and give it a good wash, then turn it into a Minibeast – I’ve added some instructions below!
Have a great day - I can't wait to see how you get on!
Good morning Year 2!
Welcome to Week 2 in Year 2’s online classroom!
In our Mathletics competition, the boys got 10,167 points and the girls got 5,044 so this week’s winners of an extra 2 dojo’s per person were the boys!
This week, there is going to be a competition running all week – come on girls, let’s show the boys we can do it!
Complete the comprehension activities on Our Solar System and On The Farm. These activities are a little longer than last week’s activities – make sure that you read the text at least twice before looking at the questions, then check back in the text for the answers.
Open White Rose Maths by clicking here. Watch the video on Week 1 Lesson 2 – Recognise a Half and use the activity sheets attached (grown up’s, the answers are attached too!) as directed in the video. Any questions, please ask!
We always start our PSHE lessons with a little bit of calm time, so follow along with Jamie to calm and focus your mind.
Then, we’re going to think about our feelings. There has been lots of change in the last few weeks and it may have brought up some difficult feelings – so we are going to check in with how we are feeling and some ways that we can keep ourselves happy and calm. Answer these questions (if you would rather talk them through than write them do, feel free!). I have put my answers in too, so if you need any ideas, have a look.
1. How do you feel inside today?
2. Is there anything worrying you at the moment? If there is, can you do anything to change it?
3. What is your favourite thing to do at home?
4. What have you done during the time at home to help out?
5. What do you do, or what can you do, to help keep you happy and calm?
6. What is your favourite thing about each of the people you live with?
7. What is your favourite thing about you?
Get your body moving with some dancing!
I hope you all have great days and I can't wait to see what you get up to!
Good morning! What a week it has been - parents and carers, thank you so much for your part in helping these little brains expand, and little brain boxes, thank you for adapting to this new way of learning!
For maths today, we're going to have a competition! On Mathletics, we're going to see who arethe real Maths Champions - the boys or the girls. Whichever team has got the most points by 3pm today will win an extra 2 dojos - EACH! Let's see who has got what it takes...
For reading, try pages 13, 14 and 15. My RWI group will recognise something!
For PE, join in with PE with Joe, Zumba Kids or some Yoga - or all 3 if you would like.
Friday means Computing! Click here to go to the Hour of Code website. You are going to play Tynker - a game that will teach us some coding, and show us how some of our favourite games are made! You choose your character, and then follow the instructions on screen to show you what to do to create your own game.
In school, we run our annual Easter Egg competition, and we have decided to keep it up this year! The details are attached in a post below. I can't wait to see your entries!
I can't wait to see all of the awesome work that goes on today! And once we're finished...
Have a fantastic day Team Year 2!
Good morning Year 2! Thank you so much for all of the amazing work yesterday - a post is coming on the Class Dojo page showing off all of the super helping that you were doing. I'm so proud and I'm sure your grown ups at home are very grateful! I think I could do with a few helpers as fantastic as you guys around the house.
For our reading today, have a look at pages 10, 11 and 12 in Book 1. Remember to check what the question is asking of you!
For maths, complete page 8 of your workbook. If you are at all stuck with partitioning, have a look at this video to help.
Then, click here to go to the White Rose Maths page. Watch the video about making equal parts. You have a few options for how to do this activity:
1. If you are working from a phone or tablet, save the activity on the page (Get the Activity), and there will be an option in 'edit' mode to write on the document. If not, it could be printed, or you could write your answers onto paper. Grown up's - there is another document on the page showing the answers so that you can check you little one is on the right track!
Thursday afternoon means music! Your challenge for today is to choose a favourite song and perform it - that could be to your grown up or I'd love to see a video!
Get yourself moving! Follow along with this video which shows you a few different activities to get wiggling.
As I have said lots, I'm so impressed with how you're all doing at home - that's the grown ups too! Have a great day.
Good morning Year 2!
I am so impressed by the work I saw yesterday - not just with our learning, but also lots of children working hard to help out their grown ups.
Today, anyone showing how they have helped out at home will get Double Dojo's!
For our reading today complete pages 7, 8, and 9. Remember, read the text twice, then read the question carefully, thinking about where you might find that information. Then, find your answer.
1 dojo for this, and another for reading a book! This can be on your own, to an adult, or perhaps to a sibling, older or younger.
For maths today, complete pages 5, 6, and 7. Today we will be working on ordering numbers and then moving on to some addition. Some of the questions will need you to work on finding a missing number by counting on in 10's. For example,
10 + ...... = 100 will need you to count in 10's from 10 to 100. 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100. That's 9 tens, which is 90! 10 + 90 = 100.
Wednesday is our writing afternoon. Watch this video. Choose one of the following options:
Make sure you get moving today - join in with PE with Joe!
Have a fantastic day, I can't wait to hear what you get up to!
Mrs O :)
Winners of the day!
1st to submit work
Mathletics Gold Medallist
TT Rockstars headliner
Well done team, proud as always! Those of you not yet logged on, join us on Class Dojo to see more of our highlights!
Good morning Year 2!
Today is a beautiful day.
In comprehension book 1, complete pages 4, 5 and 6. You all did so amazingly well at pages 2 and 3 yesterday, so I think you need the challenge of a little more!
Find a few minutes to sit and read your book. I’m going to do the same – send me a photo of you enjoying a story. It’s due to be a beautiful day, so if you have a garden, why not take your book outside?
Maths today will have two parts. Firstly, complete pages 3 and 4 of the activity book.
Next, I need some help! Yesterday, I made some flapjacks. I need you guys to help figure out a few things. Choose your challenge level – green is easier, then orange, then red is the trickiest!
When I have sliced my flapjacks up, I have 4 rows of 5 flapjacks. How many flapjacks do I have altogether?
Mr Oakley and I ate 2 flapjacks each yesterday. How many do we have left?
We are going to have 2 flapjacks each day. How many days will they last?
Look around the room you are doing your work in. See how many plastic items you can count. I’m looking around my front room now and I can see lots - for example, the TV is made of plastic, and the cats' toy is too. Pick one of the items you can see, and choose a different material to make it from. Think about why that material would or would not work well, and create a poster or picture to show me.
Get yourself moving – copy the Blazer Fresh boys’ patterns!
Don't forget, we have TT Rockstars, Mathletics and Numbots too. Can you knock any of these guys off their throne?
I've seen lots of beautiful arts and crafts, some great family game ideas and lots of brilliant activities being done aside from what I've set - I'd love to see, and Dojo's will be on offer!
Have a fantastic day, I can't wait to hear from you all!
What a day!
So many amazing things went on! Daily winners are as follows:
TT Rockstars Headliner – Rosie!
Numbots Bot of the Day – Madison!
Mathletics Gold Medallist – David!
I am so impressed with everyone’s efforts.
Plenty of other highlights will be shared on the Class Dojo story page. Brilliant stuff!
Well, this is a very different Monday morning to usual...
I’m going to start the week with some yoga to stretch myself out and wake my brain up! Click here to join in.
Find your Comprehension book, and make sure that you have book 1 in front of you. Open it to page 2, and complete the reading activities on pages 2 and 3. Remember to send me a photo to earn your Dojo points! If you can’t find the answer, re-read the text, try to find any similar words, then re-read the question. If you are still stuck, feel free to send me a message.
Then find your maths workout book! Complete the activities on pages 1 and 2. They are all about showing numbers in different ways, and representing the tens and ones. As with the reading, if you finish this, send me a photo for your Dojo!
We always fit some phonics into our day - and the team behind our RWI lessons are creating a live phonics session on their Youtube channel, at different times throughout the day based on the different speed sound sets. Click here to find out more.
Also available to you are Mathletics, Times Tables Rockstars, and Numbots (which has exactly the same login as Rockstars, but is based on addition and subtraction). Daily champions of these games will get an extra Dojo!
Have a great day – any questions, please let me know!
Welcome to the University of Bath!
Hi, my name is Mrs Oakley, welcome to our class page.
This is where I will be posting our daily home learning tasks during school closure. Year 2 and I agreed this week that each task that is shown to me on Class Dojo will earn them 1 Dojo point, and if we hit our class target of 300 Dojo points in the first week, we will have a tasty treat in class. If we reach 320, we will have a movie afternoon. If we hit 340, we will have a tea party with cakes, biscuits, and hot chocolate! We love our hot chocolate in Year 2. There will also be a chocolatey reward for the person who earns the most points each week!
I'm going to include ideas for things to do with your child aside from the Maths and English focused work and would love to hear about what you all get up to during this time away from the school building.
Look after yourselves and each other,
