Morning Year 2, 

 

I hope you all had a great day yesterday. 

 

Today we will continue our maths by reviewing bonds to 100. In Literacy we will learn about homophones (where 2 words sound the same but mean different things) and for geography we will discover the continent of Asia. 

 

Here are today's tasks...

MATHS

Main session

SUMMER: Week 4 Lesson 4

Complete the lesson on the White Rose hub website (see links below)

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/

 

 

  • Please watch the video to support your understanding.
  • Try the sheet which will be sent to you on Class Dojo.

White Rose Hub initially offered all documents for free but now only offer the videos. We have subscribed as a school so we will still have access to the sheets but I will be adding these and the answer document to our class story each day as it is not a public site. 

  • Check your work against the answers (added to class story).

 

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

 

CHALLENGE

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.

LITERACY

 

Today we will learn about homophones. This is something that we would cover in literacy and phonics. We have discussed this a little in class.

 

Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meaning. We will learn about these and put them into practice by:

 

  • watching a video to help refresh your knowledge of homophones

  • completing three activities

Activity 1: Identifying homophones

Play the Homophones mini game on Small Town Superheroes. Use the yellow arrows to navigate to the 'Steve' section to find the 'Homophones' game.

                                    

 

Activity 2: Let's find homophones    

Homophones are everywhere!

Make a list of all the homophones you can think of.

If you're struggling to think of some, you could always look through some of your favourite books at home and see how many you can spot.

Here are some to start your list off:

  • here - hear
  • son - sun
  • bass - base

 

Activity 3: Let's write some sentences

Watch this short video that introduces you to the story Nelly the Monster Sitter by Kes Gray.

 

                                   

 

What did you think about Nelly the Monster Sitter?

Using the following sentence starters, write your opinion of the story. Try and include lots off detail about what happened and what you thought of it.

  • My favourite part was _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  • I thought the book was funny because _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  • I didn't like when _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  • The story would have been better if _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Once you're finished, circle all the times you've used homophones.

GEOGRAPHY

 

It is important to learn about different places around the world. In our continent work last year we learned that there was a continent called Asia. Today, we will learn about Shanghai - its culture, buildings and transport including an introduction to the country of China and the wider continent of Asia.

 

We will...

  • watch an animation about Shanghai - its culture, buildings and transport

  • watch an animation about the Great Wall of China

  • watch an animation about the Dead Sea

  • learn a list of key words to help describe places

  • Complete 2 activities to build on the knowledge

Activity 1

Do you remember what we saw in Shanghai?

Drag the things that Freya and Mike saw in Shanghai onto the picture.

 

Activity 2

Play Pirate Bunnies: World Adventures

Are you ready for an adventure?

Hop on Captain Carrot’s ship and explore the UK and the rest of the world with the Pirate Bunnies!

You can earn treasure by completing quests.
