We want you to use your writing targets, so we will be looking to see if you are using:
Full stops and capital letters.
The wider range of conjunctions to help extend ideas.
Adjectives and adverbs in your writing.
Use different sentence types.

Main Activity:

Create a ‘Who am I?’ game based on 3D shapes, like we have completed in school. Choose a shape (but do not tell anyone), in your book, write down all the properties to describe that shape. You may then want to share this game with another family member and see if they can work out which shape you are thinking of.

Reading

Today for guided reading use the picture, ‘The Witch’ and what you read yesterday to predict what you think might happen next to the Witch in the story.

Think about what she has done and what she might do next. Will there be any consequences for her?
I would like you to record this in your literacy book or on JIT5. That way the teachers can see your answers and award you stars on j2stars.

Phonics

Ask a family member to test you on 10 spellings using the common exception word sheet in your pack. Once you have finished look at the words you have spelt incorrectly. Can you think of any tricks to help you remember them? Practice writing these words in full sentences using your writing targets. These sentences can be in your literacy book or on JIT5. You may want to create your own songs or poems to help you remember how to spell them.

 

Tuesday 7th April

Good morning Year 2!

Here are your activities for today, remember to check your J2e stars!

Literacy:

Using the same image as yesterday, write key words that come to mind when you look at the dragon. What can you smell? Hear? Touch? Taste? Feel? You need to add all the ideas around the picture or in a table as you need to use these in the next lesson. 

See if you can create a table in your book or even on J2e5:

Maths:

Problem of the Day:

 

5 a day:

Complete 5 ‘3D shape’ questions using the link below.

https://uk.ixl.com/math/year-2/select-three-dimensional-shapes
 

Main activity:

Go on a hunt around your house and collect different objects. Begin by naming what 3D shape they are and then create a picture using the different objects you have collected.
For example: a candle = cylinder, a book = cuboid. You may try and create a castle or a tree with the objects you have collected.

Guided Reading:

For your guided reading activity today start by reading the story starter for ‘The Witch’.

The witch hadn’t slept for three nights. The first night she’d spent deep in thought, plotting. The second she’d spent stooped over her cauldron, muttering evil incantations as she prepared the foul and odorous brew. On the third night, the deed had been done. Without a glimmer of remorse, she took flight once again, glancing back over her shoulder at the wreckage she’d left behind. A merciless cackle escaped her chapped lips…

What do you think the Witch’s house looks like? Use what you have read to help you draw a picture of the Witch’s lair. Your work can be done in your literacy book or on Jit5. That way the teachers can see your answers and award you stars on j2stars.

Phonics:

The sound of the day is ‘i-e’. What are the alternative spellings for this split digraph? You can use your phonics mats to help you. Now look around your house and write down as many things you can find that have an alternative ‘i-e’. Then put these words into sentences in your Literacy book or on J2e5.

Challenge Activity:

See above.

Hello Year 2, Miss Knight here! We have received some amazing work so far this week, we are really impressed. Check out Year 2’s ‘Curriculum Journey’ page on the Grove website to see the fantastic work you have all been completing at home.

Literacy: This week we have been looking at ‘The sound collector’ by Roger McGough. So far this week you have brainstormed things in your house you could taste and used adjectives to describe them and completed an activity on rhyming words. Today, we would now like you to write your own ‘The taste collector’ poem in the style of Roger McGough. Use the words you brainstormed on Tuesday to help you and challenge yourself to use rhyming words. You could write your poem either in your Literacy book or on J2e. Once you have written the poem, you may want to add pictures. We would love to see these on your BGFL account so we can give you J2stars.

Here is an example:
Miss Knight called this morning,
Dressed all in orange and grey,
Put every taste in her bag,
And carried them away.

The sweetness of the berries,
The ripeness of the grape.
The sugary taste in my mouth.
Makes me want to bake.

Morning Year 2, Miss Bennett here, I hope you are all well.


Literacy:  Read ‘The sound collector’ by Roger McGough or you can listen to the poem at https://clpe.org.uk/poetryline/poems/sound-collector


A stranger called this morning,
dressed all in black and grey,
put every sound into a bag,
and carried them away.


The whistling of the kettle,
the turning of the lock.
The purring of the kitten,
the ticking of the clock.


The popping of the toaster,
the crunching of the flakes,
when you spread the marmalade,
the scraping noise it makes.


The hissing of the frying pan,
the ticking of the grill.
The bubbling of the bathtub,
as it starts to fill.


The drumming of the raindrops,
on the windowpane.
When you do the washing-up,
the gurgle of the drain.


The crying of the baby,
the squeaking of the chair.
The swishing of the curtain,
the creaking of the stair.


A stranger called this morning,
he didn't leave his name.
Left us only silence,
life will never be the same.


After you have read the poem I would like you to create a picture on J2e5. What do you think the sound collector looks like?

Then I would like you to draw a bag and collect sounds from around your own house and draw them into the bag.   We will be awarding stars on J2stars for children who complete their homework.

Maths:  Spend 10 minutes on J2blast and practise your multiplications.

Using your 100 square provided, write as many addition and subtraction inverse number sentences as you can.
For example; 45 + 55 = 100, 100 – 55 = 45 and 55 + 44 = 100
You may want to challenge yourself further and complete multiplication and division inverse number sentences too.

Guided Reading:
