Thursday
Shared Reading. Choose a book, poem, comic, magazine or web article to read with a family member. This could be together, as a performance, even over the phone! This will help you become a fluent, clear reader.
 
Friday
(Reading and Writing activity) Choose something you have read this week - anything at all! Whether a book, magazine, poem etc - and write a review of it. What did you like? What didn't you like? What was your favourite part and why? Summarise the key events. Who do you think would enjoy reading this and why?
 
Something different? If you would like to try a different activity this week, why not write a letter to the character from the book? You could ask them how they felt at the end of the story or tell them about a similar adventure you had.
 
 
Writing
See the link to the Year 2 writing checklist. Your child's writing should aim to include as many of these things as possible.
Year 2 writing checklist
 
Monday
Write a recount about your weekend or your favourite day of last week. Did you enjoy the video from all of the staff showing you the school? Maybe you could write about what you saw and how it made you feel.
 
Don't forget when writing a recount to answer all of the questions on the question hand.

I love the picture for this week! We have hedgehogs visit our Forest School area at school. 

 
 
Thursday

Choose any animal and write a report about the life cycle of that animal. For example,

Emperor Penguins

Egg

Chick

(when does the chick hatch, what does it look like, how is it looked after, what does it eat)

Adult

(when is it an adult, what does it look like now, what does it eat now)

Friday
Please see Reading. Write a review about something you have read this week.
 
Maths

This week I will present the Maths work slightly differently. Don’t worry, as a lot of the work will be recapping skills we learned at school, with opportunity to refresh and practice these skills.

Under the work, I will also upload some new learning. This will be something we either haven’t touched on in school yet or only spent a short amount of time on. Where possible, I will link to extra resources/videos you can refer to. Remember, you are all Maths whizzes!

Still feel free to visit the Oxford Owl link below for lots of helpful information about Maths in Year 2.

Friday - Problem of the Day

New Learning

Reading Scales - This week the new learning will look at reading different scales. Take your time with these activities. Using rulers, measuring tapes, scales, water containers etc. are all fantastic practical ways to learn how to read scales!

Useful videos - https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b007zmy9/clips 

1. Reading Scales with the numbers given 

2. Reading scales on thermometres 

3. Reading scales in divisions of 2s, 5s and 10s. For this one, don't feel the need to complete it ALL. Look at each letter and what number it would be on the number line. This is tricky because some are missing. Just remember the space between each line on the number line will be EQUAL.

4. A few more activties. Some of these will be tricky so are good for a challenge.

Finally...a bit of fun!

DAILY EXERCISE.

Daily Exercise should be happening EVERYDAY, but this may take any form that suits you and your family. I love a walk in the woods with my dogs!
