English

 

This week we will be following the BBC Bitesize daily lessons on www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zkbfy9q.

 

Today's focus is forming letters correctly and using alliteration in writing.

There are 3 activities, you can choose to do as much or as little as you would like.

 

Activity 1: Creating caterpillar letters.

Watch the video on forming letters c, f, g, a, q and o.

Practice writing them making sure you are starting and ending in the correct places.

 

 

Activity 2: Using alliteration in sentences

Watch the video about alliteration first.

 

What do you know about caterpillars? See if you can write some sentences about them. Remember to use description and alliteration. Here is an example (alliteration shown in bold).

-Beautiful butterflies fly gracefully in my gorgeous garden.

 

See how many you can write. Try to aim for at least three sentences.

 

Activity 3: Complete the alliteration.

Have a go at the activity on the website and see if you can fill in the missing alliteration.

 

 

Maths

Watch the video for Comparing lengths: Week 2 lesson 1 on www.whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/

 

Complete the questions to go with it.

Here are some additional games you could play to practise your measuring skills.

Wider curriculum (History)

We will carry on looking at answering our topic question ‘How would my life have been different if I had been born in the 1930s?

 

Today’s question is ‘Why did life change in 1939?

World War 2 started in 1939 and changed life dramatically for millions of people.

 

Can you find out how the lives of children changed during WW2? Why did children have to leave their homes? Where did many go?

Here are some videos and websites that are useful.

Hands on History - A Day in the Life of a 10 Year-old Evacuee

There are different learning tasks for you to choose from:

 

  • Choose what you would pack in your suitcase if you were being evacuated. What essentials would you need? What important things from home would you take as memories?
  • Look at and play games that were played during the war
  • Make/ junk model key things you would have taken with you – name tag, gas mask box.
  • Build a model of an Anderson Shelter or an air raid shelter.
  • Speak to or interview family members or friends who lived through the war.

 

Note for parents

In school we would focus just on the experience of children and home life during the war and not the politics or the conflict between countries. You can choose how much or little you would like your child to know about this time in history.
