Hi Year 2, 

 

Ramadan Mubarak! 

 

I hope that you all had a lovely weekend and were able to enjoy the lovely weather. Saturday was hot!

 

For this week we will continue with our fraction work and today you will be counting in fractions. This is building on the fraction work you have already completed. If your child finds the fraction 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. The main focus is the White Rose Hub sheet as this continues our learning in class. 

 

For literacy we shall look at the grammar feature alliteration. 

 

I have been so impressed at the amazing work that you have been sending me. I have begun to add it to the 'Our amazing work!' link. I will continue to add your work to this so that you can see all the fabulous home learning you are doing. I am very proud- keep it up Year 2! Click on this link to take you to the page.

Take care and stay safe,

This term, we are going to begin introducing some new concepts to the children, but at a much slower rate than we would if we were in school. 

 

I am trying my best best to set activities that the children can do independently, but don't forget that in school we would be there to support them and we would adapt the activities if they were too easy or too tricky so please just try your best.

Remember, you can either print it, write the answers out or discuss them with a family member.

Literacy

I thought we would focus on some grammar today to ease us back in on a Monday.

 

Today we will look at the grammar feature alliteration. This is something that will be familiar to you as we have looked at this in class.  

 

Alliteration is when words start with the same sound. Watch this video to find out more (click on the link below)

  • Watch the video
  • Complete Activity 2 and 3

 

Activity 2: Using alliteration in sentences

Can you write some sentences using alliteration about SPRING. Remember to use description and alliteration. Here is an example (alliteration shown in bold and black).

-Beautiful butterflies fly gracefully in my gorgeous garden.

See how many you can write. Try to aim for at least three sentences.

 

Activity 3: Complete the alliteration

Have a go at the activity/quiz on the link above and see if you can fill in the missing alliteration.
