Hello Year 2,
I hope you are all well.
If you want to enter the Super Bear competition please make sure you send me your drawing by 3pm today. I have received lots of great bears so far.
Have a great day.
Here are today's tasks...
Now that we have been reviewing our 2, 5 and 10 times tables I would like you to continue to work on these on Hit the Button or if you are getting really confident at them try the corresponding division facts instead.
SUMMER: Week 6 Lesson 2 Sharing
Complete the lesson on the White Rose hub website (see links below)
Your times table knowledge and the corresponding division facts will really support the next few lessons. Times tables and their division facts will help in many areas of maths which is why we spend lots of time in them. Make sure that you know them in any order and can recall them rapidly.
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.
Our final focus on sentence types is exclamations.
An exclamation mark looks like this: !
They are used to show surprise, shock or fear when we write statements. For example: I cannot believe it!
Another way exclamation marks can be used is at the end of a command, for example: Stop!
We can also use an exclamation mark to write an exclamation sentence. These sentences must start with what or how and include a verb. For example: What an amazing pirate you are!
Watch the video and try the activities.
After that I would like you to apply your knowledge on different sentence types to the picture (I have also attached it below). You don't need to print it, just write your sentences out.
A statement - a sentence that gives information. Remember to end this sentence with a full stop.
A question - when you ask somebody something. What punctuation do you put at the end of question?
A command - telling somebody to do something. Depending on the kind of command it can end with a full stop or an exclamation mark. A command usually starts with a verb - if you want to be polite you could start with please.
An exclamation - when something has shocked, excited, made you cross, made you happy - and of course we end it with an exclamation mark!
Please extend each sentence with a conjunction - and, or, but, when, because, if.
EVERY KIND OF SENTENCE MUST START WITH A CAPITAL LETTER.
Finally, the most important part of doing any writing is to read it and check it.
Your sentences will be based on the picture provided.
We were going to have a look at habitats today as this is something that we would have been learning about in class this half term.
What is a habitat?
A habitat is where animals and plants live.
Let's explore the different habitats further by watching the clips, follow the link.
The plants and animals in each habitat need each other to survive.
Most animals and plants live in habitats which they are suited for.
Each habitats provides for the basic needs of different animals and plants which live there.
For example: a fish lives in a pond or ocean habitat and wouldn't survive in a rainforest!
Have a go at the activities.
