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 to understand how to correctly form one-armed robot letters and use them when writing labels and descriptive sentences.
One-armed robot letters are: b, h, k, m, n, pandr.
They always start by going straight down, up and over. Most of these letters have a curve, except for the letter k.
There are 3 activities, you can choose to do as much or as little as you would like.
Activity 1: Finding one-armed robot letters
Take a piece of paper and draw seven big boxes.
Activity 2: Making a poster
Imagine you're making a poster for a missing monster.
Here are some examples:
Seven long, pointy fingers.
Thick, greasy, blue hair.
Once you've finished, read through your labels and circle or highlight all the one-armed robot letters.
Activity 3: Writing sentences about the monster
Use your poster from activity two to write a paragraph describing your monster. You have already labelled your drawing so you can use these labels to create sentences. Try to create five sentence all together.
Today's focus is learning the 2 times table by counting in twos and looking at arrays and number patterns and it is from BBC Bitesize on www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zrf8jhv
Start by watching the video and listen to the song all about the 2 times tables and work through some of the examples.
Draw an array for each multiplication fact in the 2 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 twos from 0 to 24.
Have a go at the 2x table interactive activity and see if you can get all the questions right.
Activity 3: Karate Cats
Play the multiplication and division level of Karate Cats Maths - can you collect a cool new costume for your cats?
Don't forget you can practise your times tables on Times Table Rockstars!
Wider curriculum (Science)
Today's lesson is from BBC Bitesize and you will learn all about the basic forces of push, pull and twist.
Watch through the different videos explaining the different forces.
Activity 1: Match up the forces
Drag and drop to match the images to the type of forces they are showing on the interactive game.
Activity 2: Push, pull or twist?
Go round your home and see if you can find any examples where you need to push, pull or twist something.
