Good Morning!

Another great day of smashing work Year 2. Thank you parents and carers for working so hard with them at home.

8:50 – 9.30

PSHE- Express Yourself

As you are all aware this week is children’s mental health week and with schools being partially closed your mental health is more important than ever. We are all aware of how important it is to look after our physical health by exercising and eating well but we don’t always think about our mental health. One way of looking after our mental health is to express and share how we are feeling. Today we will be expressing ourselves in a creative way. We would like you to take part in the smiling challenge. You need to draw a huge smiling face on a piece of paper and write down all the reasons and things that make you smile and laugh. We cannot wait to see what you all create.

9.30-9.55

RWI

Your first task for today is to complete the RWI lesson for Set 3 sound ‘o-e’. Click on the link below and select Set 3 sound ‘o-e’ 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 fractions. We are still concentrating on halves, thirds and quarters. You will need your Maths Workout book and we are completing pages 17 and 18.

When looking at a fraction remember:

The denominator (the number on the bottom) is the number of parts which make a whole.

So, ¼ we have 4 parts which make a whole.

The numerator (the number on the top) is how many parts of the whole we have.

So, ¼ we have 1 out of 4. 1 part of the 4 parts.

To solve some of these questions we will need to be able to split a shape into quarters.

To split a shape into quarters we need to split it into 4 equal parts. Quarter means 4. 4 parts make the whole. We then need to shade the area.

So, if we have to shade in ¾ of the shape. The numerator (number on the top) tells us to shade in 3 parts and the denominator (number on the bottom) tells us out of 4.

We will also need to find a fraction of objects.

For example, if we have to find 1/3 of an object we need to simply divide by 3 (the denominator tells me how many parts in the whole) and then shade in 1 part (the numerator tells me this).

So, to find 1/3 of 6 we need to split it into 3 equal groups

This we would leave us with 2 per group.

1x3= 3

So 1/3 of 6 is 2.

10.55 – 11.10

Break

11.10 – 11.35

Times table Practise

Today we would like you to go to the link below and play ‘Super Maths Bowling’. This game can be played with more than one player so get someone at home to have a go with you. Remember to concentrate on your 2, 5 and 10 times tables and that you are confident before moving on to any of the other ones.

11.35 – 12.25

English

Today in English you will need your blue exercise book. We are going to use our diary plan from yesterday to write our own diary entry.

First let’s recap our plan and read the diary of a pirate example. Each part is broken down on our class page.

To start our diary entry first we need to write the date in the top right and miss 2 lines and write Dear diary on the left hand side. Each part is a new paragraph so remember to leave a line in between each idea.

Now to begin our introduction. Your introduction needs to state how you were woken up on the ship and say and how you got out of bed. Remember to use I, me, we, when writing a diary entry, as it is from your point of view. It’s in the first person.

For example:

Remember to use adjectives (describing words) in your writing to give lots of details.

Once we have written the introduction you now need to begin to write about what happened first. Remember to start your paragraph with a time conjunction such as first, or in the morning, this will tell us when it happened. We also need to make sure we write how we were feeling at that time. Use lots of adjectives (describing words).

We then move on to our final paragraph of what happened and how you felt. Again you need to use adjectives to describe what happened and how you were feeling. To start this paragraph you could use the time connective next, finally, soon after that, in the afternoon. It is up to you.

It’s now time to move on to the final paragraph all about the last thing you did, where you are writing your diary entry from and how you are feeling at the end of the day.

Remember to sign it off with your pirate name.

12.25 – 1.25

PE

It is that time of week again where we join Joe for one of his high intensity PE lessons. It is week 5 of home learning so by now you would be thinking that we’ve all gotten used to the fast paced workouts and know all of the exercises, we are sure that when we say we find the lessons just as challenging as the first week you will all agree. Click on the link below to join the lesson, have fun and get fit.

Joe Wicks Lesson

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.
