Thursday

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

 

Each subject has 3 activities, feel free to complete as much or a little as you would like to do.

 

English

Today's focus is to be able to identify describing words (adjectives) and use them in your writing. Start by reading through the 'Learn' section and watch the short video.

 

Activity 1

Describing words make your writing more interesting by adding more information. Fill in two describing words that you can use to describe the following things:

  • A _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ banana
  • A _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ cake
  • A _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ bed
  • A _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ball
  • My _ _ _ _ _ and _ _ _ _ _ sister/brother/friend

 

Activity 2: Let's describe what we see

Start by watching the short video about the Kokuma Dance Company.

Write five sentences describing the dance.

  • Make sure you use capital letters and punctuation correctly.
  • Include at least one adjective per sentence.
  • See if you can include the joining word and to link your ideas together.

Here is an example: The dancers moved very quickly and they looked like they were having fun.

Once you've written five sentences, you could try performing the dance yourself.

 

Activity 3: Let's advertise

 

Imagine you are a sports instructor who is creating a TV or radio advert for a sporting activity. It could be dancing, football, netball or anything else.

  • Choose a sport and come up with a sports instructor name.
    For example, if you choose dancing and your name is Daryl, you could use the name Dancing Daryl.
  • Think about when and where your activity will take place. For example, your sports activity could take place every week in the park.
  • Come up with a snappy jingle that links to the sport you've chosen. A jingle is a short statement that can be easily remembered.
    For example, Get up, get moving and get happy with Dancing Daryl.
  • Write four sentences that describe why people should take part in your sport. Make sure you include plenty of describing words. For example: Dancing is a quick and fun way of getting exercise.

Once you've done all of the above things, it's time to perform your advert.

  • Perform your jingle
  • Explain who you are and what activity you're promoting.
  • Read out your sentences that describe why people should take part.

You can even ask someone at your home to record your advert for you.

 

Maths

Today's focus is learning how to complete patterns made from 2D and 3D shapes.

Start by reading through the 'Learn' section and watch the short videos.

 

Activity 1: Patterns of 2D shapes

Activity 2: Making patterns with 2D shapes

Wider curriculum (Design and Technology)

Today's focus is to learn the basics of repeat pattern making.

Start by reading through the 'Learn' section and watch the 2 short videos.

 

Activity 1

Have a go at completing the tessellation in the interactive activity on the BBC Bitesize page.

 

Activity 2

Let's experiment with tessellation.

Using the worksheet from Twinkl, think about each shape and whether or not you think they will tessellate or fit together without gaps.

Once you have written your answer and explanation, try drawing out the shapes to test your answer and see if you are correct.
