Monday

Today's home learning is from BBC Bitesize. All of the learning, videos and activities can be found at www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z7s22sg/year-2-and-p3-lessons.

 

Over the next three weeks The Museum of London will be live streaming a programme all about the Great Fire of London. You can find the link on www.museumoflondon.org.uk/schools/session-detail?id=1058. Each week you’ll take an interactive tour through part of our Fire! Fire! exhibition – an exciting display that marked the event's 350th anniversary – learning key facts and seeing a mix of real and replica objects that tell the story of the blaze. It's on for the next 3 Mondays 2:00- 2:30. Let me know if you watch and enjoy it!

 

English

Today's focus is to be able to identify action words and use them in sentences that use different tenses. Start by reading through the 'Learn' section and watch the short videos.

 

Activity 1: Writing homophone action words

Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings. There are lots of them! To practise them, click on the interactive box and play Small Town Superheroes. Go to the 'Steve' section and play the 'Homophones' mini game.

Once you've practised by playing the game, try the following:

  • Think of ten homophones. At least four of them should include action words.
  • Cut some paper into small pieces and write a homophone on each side. For example: Write and Right.
  • Show one side to somebody at home and see if they can guess how the other homophone is spelt.

Here are some words to get you started: write, buy, sun, be, to.

 

Activity 2: Writing some action words

See if you can write an alphabet of action words.

  • Create a list of all the letters of the alphabet.
  • Next to each letter, write one action word that begins with that letter.
  • Include the past, present and future tense of each word.

Here are some to start you off:
A - acted - acting - will act
B - bounced - bouncing - will bounce
C - crawled - crawling - will crawl
D - danced - dancing - will dance

Once you've finished, you could draw some illustrations next to some of your words.

 

Activity 3: let's describe dancing

Watch the short video called 'The Grasshopper Song'.

Did you notice how the grasshoppers, bees, spiders, centipedes and other minibeasts were all dancing?

Think about some of the words that were used to describe how they danced.

  • Write six sentences describing a dance that different minibeasts could do.
  • Make sure you include verbs such as: point, spread, lift, shake, jump or spring to start your sentences.
  • Try and include a range of tenses in your sentences.

Here are two examples to start you off:

  • The grasshoppers were dancing by jumping all over the green, crunchy leaves.
  • The spider crawled over the leaf with a spring in its step.

 

Maths

Today's focus is learning how to estimate and measure volume and capacity in litres. Start by reading through the 'Learn' section and watch the short video.

 

Activity 1

Litres activity cards

This worksheet from Twinkl will help you practise measuring in litres. See if you can complete all the questions.

Wider curriculum (Music)

In this lesson play an interactive game to learn about layering music, making a beat and creating your own song. 

 

In this game explore the different elements that make up a song, play or clap along with the music and make then listen back to your own version of songs.

 

Activity

Listen to the song I am a Robot in the game above. Sing the lyrics twice:

I am a robot
I go beep, beep, beep, bop

Then copy the beat using body percussion. For example:

  • Stamp your feet
  • Clap your hands
  • Pat your thighs

If you want you can sing the lyrics again and then try a different type of body percussion.
