Thursday

English

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

 

Today's focus is correctly write the days of the week in order and use them in writing.

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

 

Activity 1

Try the interactive activity and see if you can complete the spelling to put the days of the week in the correct order.

 

Activity 2: What have you done in the last week?

Think about some of the things you've done over the past week. This could be things you've seen, things you've heard or even school work you've done.

  • Take a piece of paper and fold it in to four sections.
  • Label each section with a different day of the week - don't forget your capital letters.
  • In each section, write four things you did on that day.
  • Circle/highlight the verbs that you use.

Here is an example:
Monday
I walked the dog with my parents.
I completed some English school work.
I played a fun game.
I read a funny story.

 

Activity 3: Creating a diary

Let's create a diary that outlines the things you've done over the past week. If you can't remember what you did, you can include things you would have liked to do.

You can also include some of the things you mentioned in the activity above.

  • Write the first day of the week as a heading and then write a two or three sentences explaining what you did on that day. Try and include some interesting verbs in there too.
  • Try to use conjunctions like and, because and when in each of your sentences.
  • Once you've written your first diary entry, write the next day and continue until you have all seven days.

Here is an example:

Monday - On Monday, I went for a run in the morning with my parents because I like to stay healthy. When I got home, I did some English work. At the end of the day, I read a book about a monster and then went to bed.

 

Maths

Today's focus is learning the 5 times table by counting in fives and looking at arrays and number patterns and it is from BBC Bitesize on www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhn6pg8

 

Start by watching the video and listen to the song all about the 5 times tables and work through some of the examples.

 

Activity 1:

Draw an array for each multiplication fact in the 5 times table.

  • What do you notice about the arrays you have drawn?

  • How are they the same? How are they different?

Practise counting up and down in fives from 0 to 60.

 

Activity 2

Now, have a look at these four different representations of 5s.

Think about how you would show each one as:

1. an array

2. a repeated addition

3. a multiplication

 

Activity 3

Have a go at the 5 times table interactive activity and see if you can get all the questions right.

 

Wider curriculum (Computing)

Read through the information on the website, watch the videos and then have a go at the 2 different activities. You'll need an adult to help you with these activities.
