Wednesday, 20th May

Hello Year 2, 

 

Today we are supposed to have lots of sunshine so make sure you get outside and get some fresh air. 

 

In maths we are moving on to multiplication. We have covered this in class so it should be familiar to you. It is always important to come back to the key operations again and again throughout the year.

 

In literacy we will continue with our homophone work from yesterday. Please look at the power point and then try the sheet. 

 

I would also like you to have a look at compound words for Phonics. Compound words are when two words come together to make another word, e.g. sun  and   flower  can become sunflower

 

Try to get outside if you can today. You might even like to do some exercise outside why the weather is so lovely (although maybe not when it is too hot!). You could kick a ball, skip, do some star jumps or run on the spot or go for a walk. 

 

Have a great day!

 

Mrs T

Main session

SUMMER: Week 5 Lesson 1

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 continue our homophone work. First, I would like you to look at the power point to review the meaning and see some examples. After that have a go at the sheet attached as a chance to practice.

PHONICS

 

Compound words are when two words come together to make another word, e.g. sun  and   flower  can become sunflower. Have a look at the picture sheet attached. How many compound words you can work out?Some are easier than others!

 

Here are 2 examples, can you work them out...

 

               

 

Look what the first picture is and then say it with each picture on the other side 

 

moonfly 

moonlight 

moondragon 

 

Think about which one could be right.

 

 

1. moonlight

2. bookcase

 

Can you work them all out. You DON'T need to print the sheet out. Just write the correct compound word for each picture row on a sheet of paper.

 

Good luck!
