Today in English, we are going to begin to look at how to write in the past tense! Remember from yesterday, that when we talk about the past, we are talking about something that has already happened?

 

One way we can talk/write about the past is by adding +ed to the end of words. Have a little look at the pictures below.

 

Today I want you to finish this worksheet +ed to the end of the words and then writing some of your own sentences.

Here is your extension activity. Remember when you are writing your sentences Year 2 that you remember your:

Our reading today links in with our science. Please listen to the audiobook, read along if you can!  

Maths:

 

Today in maths we are going to carrying on looking at halves and quarters. You will need to do is sort the following shapes into halves/quarters.

 

More shapes here if you want to sort these into halves and quarters as well. 

Science:

 

In science today we are going to look at the suitability of materials.

 

Suitability means is something right use, for example, you wouldn’t make a house out of hay, because the Big Bad Wolf might blow it down! But you could build it out of brick because bricks are stronger.

 

Brick is a suitable material to build a house with.

Can you please complete this worksheet - tell me what the object is made from and what makes it suitable for its use! 

 

For example: a blanket is made from fabric because it is comfortable and soft laugh

RE:

 

In Jesus’ time, children were not thought to be special. So, when people brought their children to Jesus, other adults tried to stop them sad

 

But Jesus told them not to stop the children coming to see him, instead Jesus welcomed the children.

 

In R.E today we are going to learn about how Jesus always loved children, and then think about who in our lives always has time for us. Who can we always count on? 

 

Firstly, can you watch the video, it tells you a very important story about Jesus. 

Now, I need you to think of five people who you can always count on, these can be family, friends, teachers, anyone you like! It just has to be someone that you know you can always turn to if you ever needed anything. I want you to draw a hand/ use the template below and write these five names on each of the fingers. I then want you to colour and decorate your hand as best you can! yesblush

 

I have added some photos below to help you with ideas, but these do not have names on the fingers so just be careful you do not copy these surprise

Your task is to cut out and stick your new words next to their correct meaning.

Have a go at these tricker words if you want to challenge yourself – you will probably need to look up what these mean either in a dictionary or on the Internet! If you can think of some brilliant sentences with our new words in that is great, have them ready for tomorrow’s Zoom and we can share these with the rest of the class.

P.E

 

Today in P.E I would like you to do some yoga! Yoga is really good for balance, strength, and posture it is even good for our mind, helping our concentration and making us feel calm. Please watch the YouTube video and join in as best you can!

Religious Education:

 

Today we will look at who was Jesus’ friend and then reflect on our own friendships. Friendships are very important, friends can help us when we need it, can listen to us when we have something to say and can share lots of fun/ important memories with.

 

Before we begin, can you think about who was Jesus friends with? Can you remember any of their names?

 

Have a read through these pictures to find out!

 

Now, can you have a little think about your friends in your life? What do you think makes a good friend? What do you think makes a bad friend? Who are your friends?

 

Complete this activity, drawing a picture of your friend/friends and writing in the boxes why they are such a good friend to you!

Mindfulness:

 

It is a tricky time at the moment no so you need to have time to do some mindfulness activities. I have attached some beautiful pictures for you to colour in if you would like to use these. If you would like to draw something on your own, feel free! It would be nice to see what you have produced in our next Zoom session smiley

Good morning Year 2, we missed you in school yesterday, but here is a big cheesy grin from all of us to you.

Welcome to your second day of online learning blush I hope you are all doing well, and I can’t wait to see you all on Zoom at 9:45 for our lesson. In the meantime, do have a look at the videos and resources on here.

 

Here is your EMA for this morning:

 

Can you answer these four additions? 

 

5 + 8

10 + 7

7 + 11

23 + 11

 

We have been looking at addition in class and using our jottings to help us. Look at the photo if you need help with this. Use your jottings to help you complete these additions. 

English Activity

 

We started our Great Fire of London topic on Monday in class surprise looking at how London has changed from 1666. We have learnt a lot about what London used to be like, dark, dirty and probably quite scary! Yesterday, you should have created your own fact file on the Great Fire of London, I cannot wait to hear what you have all found out!

 

Today we are going to start reading our first book of our topic! How exciting, this book is called The Great Fire of London. I had prepared a video for you all where I read the book, but unfortunately, the file is too big to be uploaded onto this page! So please look through the pictures of the book, try and read it yourself, or get a grown-up to read it to you and have a little think about the questions it asks. 

 

 

We are now going to write some lists of things we found in our book, and we are going to include commas. Commas are used in lists to separate ideas. BUT to make it trickier, we always put an ‘and’ between our last two items.

 

Here are some examples: 

 

1) I went to the shop and I bought a banana, an apple, some cheese AND some milk. 

2) I love reading books, going to school AND playing with my friends. 

 

Can you now complete this worksheet, finishing the sentences using your commas in your list.

 

Other useful websites for learning about commas (this also has a quiz on it, if you wanted to test your knowledge) https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z8x6cj6/articles/zxvcrdm

 

Maths Activity

 

This week we are still learning to tell the time! Firstly, can you go and watch your telling the time song to help with your learning.

 

Today we are learning about how to tell the time to quarter to the hour and quarter past the hour.

 

 

For this activity, can you draw lines and match the clock face with the correct time.

Next, use a ruler and draw the hands on these clocks. Use a ruler if you can and remember - the minute hand is looooonnnngggg and the hour hand is short.

Science

 

This afternoon we are starting our new topic in science: materials! laugh Before we go any further, can you think about what a material is?enlightened

 

First, I want you to watch the materials song to help you with your learning. 

After watching that I want you to think about what a material is? Can you spot any different materials in the room that you’re sat in? There might be lots and lots of different materials that you can find.

 

Your afternoon task for today is to sort all these different objects out into what they're made from....their material! Can you cut and stick the images under the correct headings. If you do not have a printer, do not worry! You can draw these pictures, or even have a think of some of your own. Enjoy Year 2 yes

Good afternoon Year 2, 

 

We hope you've had a good morning and you've enjoyed the activities. Don't worry if you didn't manage to finish we've left the activities below so you can carry on with them if you need to laugh.

 

Afternoon Activities 

 

 

So our very exciting topic for this half-term is THE GREAT FIRE OF LONDON! 

 

This afternoon you're going to become historian explorers and find out lots of facts about exactly what happened in 1666! 

 

 

Look below for a short cartoon to tell you more about it:

 

 

 

The Great Fire of London 1666

This afternoon we'd like you to find out as many interesting facts about THE GREAT FIRE OF LONDON as you can! The internet is great for finding out lots of information! 

 

When you've found out some facts we'd like you to create a list of facts like the one below:

 

You can add pictures to your fact page and make it really bright and colourful! Maybe you might like to show your work in your zoom lesson tomorrow! 

 

Have a look at this really fun Great Fire of London game too, it will help you with your learning: http://www.fireoflondon.org.uk/game/

 

Have fun everyone! 

laugh

Good morning Year 2 laugh

 

We're sad that you can't be in school at the moment but we know that you're going to make us so proud by working as hard as you can at home angel.

 

We will put up lots of fun learning activities everyday on this page, both morning and afternoon so keep checking yes

 

 

Here's your EMA (Early morning activity) for this morning:

 

How many different ways can you make the number 10? 

 

What numbers can you add together to make 10?

Maybe you can add several numbers to make 10...?

Can you subtract to get to the number 10?

Can you use your times tables to make 10?

Can you divide into two equal groups so each group has 10?

 

 

English Activity

 

This week we're learning to write a recount in chronological order. 

Remember, a recount is when we talk/write about something that we have already done.

We have to write our recount in chronological order so that it makes sense (what we did first, next etc!) 

 

Today, we'd like you to think about using conjunctions in sentences. 

Conjunctions are joining words that STRETCH sentences to add more detail.

 

The conjunctions we've looked at in class so far are: and, but, because, or, so. 

 

These are the conjunctions we'd like you to use today: 

 

 

Here is the activity we'd like you to complete: 

 

Can you copy these sentences and use the correct conjunctions in each sentence so that it makes sense?

 

Here's another challenge for you to do, if you're up for it...

 

This time you need to get rid of the full stop at the end of the first sentence and replace it with a conjunction! 

 

Choose from:         and     but       because     so

 

Here's an example:          It snowed yesterday. I got wrapped up and went for a walk.

                                           It snowed yesterday so I got wrapped up and went for a walk. 

 

Maybe you can write you own sentences using some of the different conjunctions on the rainbow fan above! 

 

 

  Super work guys! Now for Maths laugh
