Tuesday

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 understanding how to use conjunctions in sentences

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

 

Start by watching the video about conjunctions. Can you remember the conjunctions we have learnt about in school?

Activity 1: Finding the conjunctions

 

Take a look at the sentence below and mark whether a coordinating conjunction is used. Use a tick if the sentence contains one and a cross if it doesn't. The first two have been done for you.

  • We need to go now if we want to be on time. 
  • The dog loved running really fast on the field. 
  • Because you're were well behaved, you can have a reward.
  • See how high you can jump in the air.
  • That cat is always eating because it's always hungry.
  • It's been raining all day long.
  • When I get home, I'm going to have some food and play my games.
  • I jumped even higher than the last person.
  • If I see you, I will say hello.

 

Activity 2: Highlight the conjunctions

Try the interactive activity and see if you can highlight all the conjunctions.

 

Activity 3: Let's write some instructions

Do you remember the story about Nelly the monster sitter in yesterday's lesson?
You can watch the video again if needed, then have a go at the activity below.

 

Imagine you are teaching someone how to be a Monster Sitter. Write a list of equipment a Monster Sitter will need and then write some instructions outlining what they must do.

You'll need to:

  • Make sure your instructions are clear by numbering them.
  • Use capital letters at the start of each sentence and a full stop at the end.
  • Use multiple conjunctions in your instructions. These can be and, because, if and when. For example: You will need to cook the monster its food because it will be hungry. If you don't cook its food, it will get grumpy.

 

 

Maths

Today's focus is revisiting how to use an array to see the commutativity of multiplication facts ( for example 3 x 5 is the same as 5 x 3) and it is from BBC Bitesize on www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zrf8jhv

 

Start by watching the video on repeated addition and multiplication: describing arrays, and look at all the different examples of arrays on the website.

 

Activity 1:

 

  1. Can you draw an array to show 3 x 4?

  2. Which other multiplication fact does it show?

  3. Does it help you calculate 4 x 3?

 

Remember

An array is a rectangular diagram to show a multiplication fact. It always has rows and columns and shows that multiplication is commutative.

 

Activity 2:Make an array activity

Try the interactive activity to see if you can answer the question by making your own array.

 

Activity 3:Worksheet:using arrays

Try answering the questions on the worksheet all about arrays.

Wider curriculum (Geography)

 

Today's lesson is from BBC Bitesize and you will learn all about Australia including the Northern Territory, the Great Barrier Reef and the wider continent of Oceania.

 

Start by watching the different videos all about Australia by watching the videos and reading the key information. Once you have learnt all about Australia have a go at these activities.

 

Activity 1: Do you remember what we saw in the Northern Territory?

On the interactive game, drag the things that Freya and Sara saw in Australia onto the picture in the game.

 

Activity 2: Living on opposite sides of the world?

Watch the short film in activity 2 to find out what life is like for two children living on opposite sides of the world.

After watching the film have a go at answering the following questions:

  • Write a list of the different geographical features in Townsville in Australia and Mossley in Greater Manchester. Do you see hills, rocks, beach, sea?

  • How is the environment similar or different where you live?
