Tuesday, 2nd June

Hi everyone, 

 

I hope you are well. 

 

It has been so lovely to see pictures that you have messaged on Dojo or added to your Portfolio of your Eid celebrations and getting out and about over half term on walks and on your bikes. 

 

Here are today's tasks...

MATHS

 

Warm-up  

Practice your 5 times table to help you with today's lesson.  

https://www.timestables.co.uk/5-times-table.html

 

Main session

SUMMER: Week 5 Lesson 4 The 5 times table

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

 

We will continue to focus on different sentence types. We are fantastic at writing questions and statements but sometimes find exclamations and commands a little tricky. Today we will review all sentence types. Please click on the link to view the videos.

When we write sentences, we always use a capital letter at the start. We also use capital letters for I and for proper nouns (the names of people, places, languages, days of the week and countries).

At the end of a sentence we put punctuation. The punctuation we use depends on the type of sentence. There are four types of sentences. They are: statements, commands, questions and exclamations.

 

Statement sentences

Statements are the most common type of sentence. They tell the reader a fact or idea about a single topic. These sentences usually end with a full stop.

For example: The cat walked over to the house.

 

Command sentences

Command sentences are used when you are telling someone to do something. Because they are telling someone to do something, they usually start with a bossy verb.

For example: Fetch me some biscuits.

 

Question sentences

These sentences always end with a question mark.

                                  

Exclamation sentences

These sentences always end with an exclamation mark.

                                  

 

 

Once you have watched the videos complete the activities:

1. Play the 'Small Town Superheroes' punctuation game.

2. Watch the story and write questions and statements.

3. Write some pirate sentences.

 

COMMON EXCEPTION WORDS

 

Below I have attached the full guess the word document. All of them are common exception words. See if you can guess what they are. You don't need to print the sheets out, you can just write your answers down on a piece of paper. You are all great at reading them but writing them down will help you to practice the spelling. If you find it really tricky you may want to use the common exception word mat to support you.

                                                       TOPIC- GEOGRAPHY

 

We are going to learn about another continent, Oceania- Australia. You will learn about the Northern Territory, the Great Barrier Reef and the weather and environment.

Australia is really far away - it's on the opposite side of the Earth to the UK. It is sunny and hot.

Kangaroos, koalas and lots of spiders and snakes live in Australia.

Alice Springs is a town in the centre of Australia, very far from the sea. It is found in an area of Australia called the Northern Territory.

 

                     

 

Oceania is a continent which is made up of Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and many other smaller islands.

Oceania is home to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the natural wonders of the world, and home to lots of ocean wildlife.

                       

 

Australia has lots of wide open space called the Outback. Watch this Go Jetters Funky Facts animation to find out more.

                            

Complete the activities:

1. Play the game about the Northern Territory.

2. Watch the video to learn how life compares for two children, in Manchester, UK (here!) and Townsville, Australia.

3. Play: Pirate Bunnies World Adventures.
