Monday

Welcome back from half term, I hope you have enjoyed your time these last 2 weeks. I'd love to hear what you have been up to. Don't forget we have our class email where you can ask any questions or send across photos/ videos of learning you have been doing to year2@stmartinscofe.com.

 

This week we will be following the BBC Bitesize daily lessons on www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z7s22sg/year-2-and-p3-lessons/1

 

English

Today's focus is to build your knowledge of word endings and develop your vocabulary.

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

 

Start by playing the 'Tricky Word Endings mini game on Small Twon Superheroes.

 

Activity 1

  • Get your favourite book. If you can't find one, speak to an adult and ask them to find a piece of reading material that's appropriate (it could be an article from a newspaper or magazine).
  • Look at the words in the book and see how many words you can spot that use the following endings: er, ed, es, ll and ly.
  • Try and find five words for each word ending.

If you can't get hold of any reading material, just think of words that use those endings yourself.

Here are some examples:

Er Ed Es Ll Ly
runner fixed changes call softly
offer interested oranges tell partly

 

Activity 2: Finding out about rubbish

Watch the video about what happens to our rubbish.

Were there many words you were unfamiliar with in that video?

  • Try writing the words that were unfamiliar to you.
  • Once you've completed your list, quiz someone in your house about them and see if they know what they mean.
  • Then write three sentences using at least one of the words from your list. For example, if one of your words was environment, your sentence could be: The environment will be damaged if people don't recycle.

Once you've written your sentences, circle the words that use the following word endings: er, ed, es, ll or ly.

 

Activity 3: Writing sentences containing word endings

When you go shopping, you will notice that food and drink comes in lots of different packaging.

Have a look online or in your kitchen and try listing items you have in to the following sections:

Cardboard Box Plastic Box Plastic Bottle Glass Jar Tin Can
Breakfast cereal Butter Orange squash Jam Baked beans

The first row has been filled in for you. See how many items you can find for each material around your home.

  • Once you've completed your list, pick five items from your list and write a sentence for them.
  • Make sure you use at least two of the following word endings in each of your sentences: er, ed, es, ll, or ly.
  • Use capital letters and punctuation correctly.
  • Use the joining word 'and' to say whether the item can be recycled or not.

For example: Baked beans are tightly packed into a tin can and when the can is empty it can be recycled.

 

Maths

Today's focus is revisiting how to recognise a unit fraction as one equal part of a whole.

Start by watching the video all about unit fractions from Bitesize.

 

Activity 1: Let's get moving

Join in the Super Movers video and get moving whilst learning about fractions!

 

Activity 2

Try the unit fraction worksheet from Twinkl. There are 3 different activities to have a go at.

 

Activity 3

Try to the fractions worksheet from HeadStart Primary.

 

Wider curriculum (History)

Today's focus is learning about the life, actions and achievements of Elizabeth Fry.

Start by reading through the information and watching the video explaining all about her life and why she is famous.

 

Activity 1: Asking questions about the past.

A great way to learn about the past is to ask questions.

Think of some questions you would like to ask about Elizabeth Fry and keep them to use in activity 2.

 

Activity 2: True stories

In the film an actor plays Elizabeth Fry talking about her life.

Are you able to answer any of your questions from activity 1?

 

Activity 3: Put the events in order

Can you remember the actions of Elizabeth Fry?

Try to put the cards in the right order in the interactive activity.
