Wednesday, 3rd June

Hello everyone, 

 

I hope you got on okay with yesterday's work. 

 

The sun continues to shine so please try and get some fresh air. You all continue to amaze me with your excellent attitude and effort with your work but it is also so lovely to see all the other things you have been doing including planting, playing outside, biking and going on walks to name but a few. Keep it up!

 

I hope you all have a great day!

 

Here are today's tasks...

MATHS

 

Warm-up  

Practice your 10 times table to help you with today's lesson.  

https://www.timestables.co.uk/10-times-table.html

 

Main session

SUMMER: Week 6 Lesson 1 The 10 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 focus on command sentences as these are ones we sometimes get a little confused over. When thinking about these become the Head Teacher or the boss as you are giving instructions or telling someone to do something. Like all sentences, they always start with a capital letter. Command sentences usually end with a full stop, but they can also use exclamation marks too.

Commands usually start with an imperative verb, also known as a bossy verb. There are lots of different bossy verbs. Some examples of bossy verbs are: get, bring, pick, take, move, cook plus loads more.

 

They are called bossy verbs because they are verbs that tell someone to do something. For example: Fetch me some biscuits.

Watch this short video to find out more.

Then try the activities:

1) Spot the imperative verbs. 

2) Write pirate commands.

3) Choose a job where you give commands. 

 

 

COMMON EXCEPTION WORDS

 

Today I want you to become the teacher and spot the spelling mistakes. The sheet is attached below.

       

You don't need to print the sheet out. You can identify the words and write Mr Whoop's spelling list on a piece of paper.

TOPIC- MUSIC

 

In school we were learning to play the ocarina and you were all doing brilliantly. Mrs Gheelan was very impressed. Today we will look at instruments that you can make at home. You might even be able to come up with different ideas than what they suggest. If you make some music I would love to see it, take a video and add it to Class Dojo. 

 

YolanDa Brown shows you how to make make music from objects found in the kitchen.

Watch the video and see how the children create a jar xylophone using glass jars, food colouring, a wooden spoon and water.
