Year 2 video

Still image for this video
This video has kindly been created by the year 2 parents and children. Permission has been given to share it on the school website. Miss you all.

Examples of Home Learning

Please see Maya's super Stuck story.

Week beginning: 1.6.20

 

I hope you all had a break from home schooling and had a chance to enjoy the sunshine.

 

I have attached activities for each day of the week for the children to complete as part of their home learning this week. The colours show the level of priority. Green will indicate that this learning is essential and is part of a series of lessons which will impact on future learning. These take first priority. Amber will indicate that these are tasks set in isolation. These should be completed but are not part of a series of lessons. Red will indicate extension activities or additional challenges which are to be completed after all other learning.

 

Maths

White Rose Hub have provided a range of lessons with video clips to explain methods. These recap skills that the children have already been taught in school. The current focus is on multiplication and division. The videos remain free on the White Rose Hub website but they have now started to charge for the resources. I have posted the White Rose Hub resources under each day and these will match with the video clips. In addition, there is a link on the White Rose Hub website to BBC Bitesize where additional practise activities can be found.

 

In year 2, the children need to know their 2, 5 and 10x tables. The children begin to divide through sharing and making equal groups using practical objects and resources. They also need to be able to recognise odd and even numbers.

 

English

Monday: Read the story of the Elves and the Shoemaker (or listen to the audio version through the link in the resources). Complete the boxes to share your views of the story. Then answer the questions that Pepper asks you about the story you have read. Remember to look through the text again to help you find the answers.

 

Tuesday: Recap the story (perhaps using the audio version). Look at the words that Jas has picked out. Can you match the meanings? Look at the explanations of verbs, adjectives and nouns. Can you put each word under the correct heading? Finally become a designer for the elves and design them some new clothes.

 

Wednesday: Look at the letter that Mr and Mrs Cobbler have sent to the elves. Imagine that you are one of the elves. Write them a postcard back and tell them about all the adventures you have been on. Remember to keep to first person (I, we, my) and to write in past tense.

 

Thursday: Use the story mountain to plan your own story about elves that help people. There are some example ideas on the sheet. Think about the beginning, middle and ending of your story.

 

Friday: Use your plan to write your own story about elves helping people. Make sure you include a problem, how the elves help and a happy or sad ending in your story.

 

Amber- There are also some riddles at the end of the booklet for you to have a look at if you would like to. Can you solve the riddles and make up one of your own about an animal?

 

Science- Materials

At the end of the English resources for this week there is also a science experiment based on material properties. Can you help the elves to design an umbrella by testing different materials to see if they are strong and waterproof?

 

 

 There are also links to Joe Wicks PE youtube channel (live streamed at 9am on a school day), White Rose Hub maths, The Maths Factor and Pete McKee's Cartoon Workshop (which is updated every Wednesday).

 

I have also attached links to BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy. They both include activities which are updated daily and have videos to support learning. I would suggest that these are good resources to add to the learning activities that I have put on this page.

 

The activities and resources on Classroom Secrets Kids has also been updated with many activities on spelling, maths and reading. If you do not have a login, this remains free to sign up for.

 

If you need any help with your home learning or want to share something that you have done you can email me at dsmith@nortonfree.sheffield.sch.uk. Or if you would like to showcase some of the work you have been doing at home on the website please email me a picture of it.

Whilst we would like you to complete some reading, writing and maths with your child daily please also enable your child to access creative activities such as painting, drawing and constructing.

 

Further information about our current topics can be found on our knowledge organiser. These topics will be updated regularly.

Week beginning: 27.4.20

 

I have attached activities for each day of the week for the children to complete as part of their home learning this week. From Monday 27th April all learning set will have a key to prioritise learning. Green will indicate that this learning is essential and is part of a series of lessons which will impact on future learning. These take first priority. Amber will indicate that these are tasks set in isolation. These should be completed but are not part of a series of lessons. Red will indicate extension activities or additional challenges which are to be completed after all other learning.

 

Maths

White Rose Hub have provided a range of lessons with activities and video clips to explain methods. These recap skills that the children have already been taught in school. The current focus is on measurement (cm and m) and this will link with activities that I have posted below.

 

In year 2, the children need to be able to measure lengths in centimetres and metres. They also need to be able to compare lengths, order lengths and solve problems involving lengths.

 

English

Monday- Children to watch the short film ‘Dangle’ up to 1m 45s. Who is the man? What is he doing there? What do they think will happen when the man pulls the rope? Write a prediction about how they think the film will end. Watch the end of the film to see whether their prediction was correct.

 

Tuesday- Watch the short film ‘Dangle’ again. The man had a dilemma. Should he pull the rope or not? Think of reasons for and against pulling the rope. What would they do if they were in his position? Why?

 

Wednesday- Children use their ideas to write a letter to the man to persuade him to pull/not pull the rope (whichever they think he should do). Try to include your address, adjectives to persuade and a rhetorical question. For example- How would you feel if something terrible happens? What if you never find out what the rope does?

 

Thursday- Children to re-watch the video. How do they think the story will end? Act out the story so far as if they are the main character and then add their own scene. What will happen after the rope falls down to earth? If you’d prefer you could create a comic book strip to retell the story and decide on your ending.

 

Friday- Use the ideas from the drama/comic strip that they created to write their ending to the story. Focus on how the man felt when he realised what had happened. Try to describe the sounds he would hear and what he would do next.
