How beautiful was the weather yesterday!
I can't believe that we are now in the last week of term! The second half of this year has been very strange but has also gone very fast. Sadly we are not in school together to share our last week and all the fun activities and performances that would normally be going on but you have proved yourselves to be absolute superstars, taking to home learning, being resilient and producing great pieces of week. I have been very proud.
Keep up all the hard work for our final week!
Have a great day,
Here are today's tasks...
Choose any category that you want to work on and a game to play.
We are going to finish our maths learning by focusing on telling the time. Again, as with money, this is a life skill. Use a watch or clock to help you where possible.
Look at the learning summary on O'clock and half past.
Now watch this video.
YEAR 2- SUMMER TERM- WEEK 11- LESSON 3
O'CLOCK AND HALF PAST
Afterwards I would like you to try the sheet attached below and check your work against the answers.
Remember, you can either print it, write the answers out or discuss them with a family member.
If your child finds the White Rose sheet fairly easy I have also attached an additional problem solving activity. As that suggests the questions are more tricky, take time and are to extend learning further. They get more difficult as you work through them. The answers are also provided to support you to review the work.
Today we will learn more about alliteration.
Alliteration is when words in sentences start with the same sound.
For example, Sammy the slippery snake came sliding.
Alliteration is used in both written and spoken English. You can find examples in poetry, advertising and events commentary. It is often used in newspaper headlines to grab the reader's attention.
Watch this video to find out more.
Now try the activities.
Antonio Vivaldi wrote The Four Seasons during the early Classical period.
It has four movements:
Each movement sounds different and represents the season it is named after.
For example, ‘Spring’ is full of energy, whereas ‘Winter’ sounds harsh and is in a minor key.
In this film, the music of Vivaldi inspires the Thunder Jam group to draw what they hear.
Now work through the activities.
Learn to draw a unicorn with Rob. The children that were in school last week really enjoyed drawing their dinosaurs and they turned out really well. They have requested a unicorn this week.
