Wk beginning 30.3.20 Home learning week 2
I hope you are all well and enjoying the home learning tasks so far. I'm missing you all so much and would like to see any pictures of your work.
This week we are writing our final piece, an animal poem with repeated phrases. There is a planning video on the English Education City work for this week to help you. Please find below a planning sheet to plan your poem and a success criteria so you know what to include in your poem when you write it.
This is the second week on telling the time to the nearest five minutes. The activities are still on Education City and there are some Focus Maths activities below. Please continue with TT Rockstars and Hit the Button for times tables and number bonds.
The spelling list is below and the focus is ful, ness and ly suffixes. There is a suffix game on the English Education City work for this week too.
The focus for this week is food chains. There is a short video and activities below. Also this week I would like you to design and then build you own animal sculpture using recycled materials from around the house. Please send me pictures of your sculptures and I'll put them on the website.
Have a great week my amazing Team Two Superstars! Missing you all and can't wait to see your fantastic work.
Love Mrs Bagshaw xxx
Wednesday 25th March Update
Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and getting on ok with your home learning. I'm missing you all so much and can't wait to find out what you've been up to.
The Joe Wicks workout is very good on YouTube at 9am in the morning, I managed to complete most of it today!!!
David Walliams is reading a story at 11am every day which I'm sure you will enjoy. You can access it at any time, not just 11am. I've added the link to that below.
Carol Vorderman's 'The Maths Factor' website has been made available free of charge for all children learning at home. You can register online but it has been very popular so it may take you a while. I've added a link below too.
Keep up the good work at home and lots of love to you all.

I hope you are all well and managing at this very difficult time. I am thinking of you all and missing the children so much.
Here is an outline of the work for this week:
The main focus this week is telling time to the nearest five minutes. (This is the focus for two weeks so don't worry if you child takes a long time to learn this skill.) I've put some games on Education City starting by telling the time to the hour, then half hour, then quarter past and to the hour and finally telling the time to the nearest five minutes. There is also a time game towards the bottom of this class page.
Alongside time, the children can continue to work on their times tables (2, 5, 10), number bonds (10 and 20) and addition and subtraction facts within 20. You can use dice or dominos to practise these skills to give you child a break from their computer or Ipad.
We are into the second week of our English poetry unit. During week two we practise the grammar needed to use when writing our poem next week. The skills this week are using capital letters for names, places, days of the week etc and using expanded noun phrases ( a soft, fluffy kitten - two adjectives before the noun). I have put games on Education City to support learning these skills. To get your child off the computer, they could look for capitals letters and expanded noun phrases in books or any other print you have around the house.
I have attached a spelling list for this week's spellings. The new spelling focus this week is apostrophes for belonging (Ben's ball, Kate's cat- the ball that belongs to Ben etc). There are some games on Education City and also look in books at home to find any possessive apostrophes.
The focus this week is finding animals in the environment so you could have an animal hunt in your garden at varies times of the day. After that the children will need to learn about carnivores, herbivore and omnivores. I have added some resources below as well as adding some games to Education City. There is also a full range of Topic personalised learning tasks on the second page of the Year Two Self Isolation learning from home letter further down this page.
Thank you for all your support at this difficult time. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to contact me with any worries or concerns. I will answer all messages as soon as possible.
Stay safe and lots of love to you all.
