Practice writing some of our spelling words for year 2 in your book focusing on your handwriting. This week’s spellings are the stressed /er/ sound spelt with ‘or’ after w and also the spelling of the /or/ sound spelt ‘ar’ after w.
This week we will be following the BBC Bitesize daily lessons on www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zfmtpg8
Today's focus is a reading lesson with Funny Bones by Allan Ahlberg, focusing on being able to order events in the story and explain your opinion of the book.
Start by watching the video of the story.
There are 3 activities, you can choose to do as much or as little as you would like.
Activity 1: Match characters to what they said.
Activity 2: Explain your opinion.
Activity 3: Creating new ways to scare skeletons.
Today's maths is to keep up the practise of our arithmetic skills we have learnt so far in year 2. Have a go at answering these questions in your workbook. Don't forget to show your working out.
24 + 7 = 35 - 6 =
42 + 10 = 67- 30 =
4 x 5 = 7 x 2 =
30 ÷ 5 = 18 ÷ 2 =
Wider curriculum (Computing)
We will be look at creating patterns which is an important step before learning how to write or use algorithms (a specific sequence of instructions or rules).
In this activity I would like to spot and create patterns. You can use the patterns on the document or create your own.
Can you explain what colour will come next and why?
What shape will come next? Can you explain how you know?
Task: create your own patterns using shapes, simple pictures or even just colours. There must be a sequence or rule to your pattern for somebody else to follow.
Once you have created some of your own patterns, write simple instructions (an algorithm) on how to make your pattern. Use the key words first, then and repeat.
Challenge: can you write a simple algorithm (sequence of steps) for someone else in your house to follow to create your pattern?
Here are some more examples of patterns you could create and make:
