Thursday

English

   

 

This week we will be following the BBC Bitesize daily lessons on www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znbx6v4

 

Today's focus is to be able to use some description and join ideas in sentences using conjunctions like 'and', 'because' and 'if'.

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

 

Activity 1: Let's watch Barnaby

 

After watching the video, explain to somebody at home what an allotment is.

  • Make sure you include lots of describing words
  • you can watch the video again and make notes, if it helps
  • see if you can talk for 40 seconds to somebody, describing what an allotment is.

Ready, steady, go!

 

Activity 2: Creating a magical plant

Imagine you could create a magical plant. What would it be?

Try to consider the following things:

  • what would be magical about your plant?
  • would something magical grow on it?
  • what does your magical plant look like?
  • does the magical plant have a name?

Write six sentences about your magical creation.

Remember to include lots of describing words as well as including joining words like, 'and', 'but', 'because', 'if', and 'when' Also, try and use words like 'the best', 'the fastest', 'the most beautiful', 'the weirdest'.

Here is an example. My magical plant is called Chocolato because it grows delicious chocolate bars instead of leaves. When you break a chocolate off it, another one grows straight away. Chocolato is the most unusual plant ever. If you are really good, beautiful chocolate flowers might grow. But you have to be careful or you might get tummy-ache if you eat too much.

 

Activity 3: Use your imagination

Choose four people that you know - these could be friends or family - and list all the things that each person really loves.

Then think of a magical plant for each person. For example, if one of your friends really loves football, you could have a tree that is covered in lots of footballs.

Draw each magic plant - making sure you include notes to describe features of the tree.

Maths

Today's maths lesson focuses problem solving. You can find the video for the lesson Summer Week 2 lesson 3 on www.whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/

 

Once you have watched the video, have a go at the questions on today's worksheet. Record the answers in your maths workbook.
