Moving on up!
Tuesday 14th July 2020
Following on from yesterday, today for English you will be adding another section to your information leaflets for the new year 2 children. Think about what is different in year 2 compared to year 1.
For maths, we would like you to continue to work on using arrays to help you create multiplication calculations. Print or copy by hand the worksheet from below and follow the link within the PowerPoint to access today's session.
Log on to Purple Mash to complete your reading comprehension task.
Yesterday you read the story about the 'Cautious Caterpillar'. Today we would reflect on the story in more detail. Re-read the story and then follow the PowerPoint 'Spread your wings' and think about how you are feeling about moving to a new year group and classroom.
Finally, we would like you to think about year 2 and all of the memories you have from it. Complete the sheet 'My school year memory page' with some of these memories.
Have a good day everyone!
Fun in the sun
Tuesday 7th July 2020
Following on from yesterday's learning in English, we would like you to think about water safety because swimming in pools and at beaches is another way people enjoy the sun. Today we would like you to write a short section about water safety in the leaflet that you started yesterday. On the final slide you will find the success criteria for writing in year 2. Check that you have remembered to use the relevant ones in your writing. Once you have finished, draw a picture to go with it.
In maths, you will be ordering different lengths. Follow the link below for the session. You will also need the worksheet (below) which you can print or copy by hand.
On Purple Mash, you will find today's reading and comprehension activities when you log in.
For your science session, you will be designing two different types of paper aeroplanes, one today and one tomorrow. Watch the Youtube video to help you do this. On the PowerPoint you will also find slides with folding instructions. Keep your aeroplane in a safe place ready for tomorrow's session.
Next, we would like you to create a windmill. Follow the instructions on the PowerPoint and take care when cutting. Once you have done this, find a small box that you can decorate with sand colours. Make a hole in the middle to push the stick of the windmill through. Place you windmill outside and watch it turn with the wind.
Finally, imagine you stumble upon your ideal deserted island whilst you are on holiday. What would it look like? What things would you take with you so that you can enjoy your time alone? Follow the PowerPoint and use the sheet to design and label your ideal desert island.
Today's story is set in the Malaysian jungle. Can you identify where Malaysia is on the world map? Listen to the story by following the link within the PowerPoint.
Remember you can upload any work that you would like to share on our Purple Mash blog. Have fun!
Find your brave
Tuesday 30th June 2020
In today's English session you will continue to work on the story 'The Firework Maker's Daughter'. Making inferences is the skill that you will be working on. Follow the link to access the lesson. Remember to pause the video when you need to.
Yesterday, you worked on finding three quarters. Today you will move on to counting in fractions. Click on the link for the session 'Summer Term Week 1 - Lesson 2 - Count in fractions'. You will need the worksheet below.
On Purple Mash you will find the second chapter and activities for this week's book.
Read the story of 'Beegu' on the PowerPoint. Can you help Beegu find her way home by drawing a map? Follow the prompts on the PowerPoint. You can use the sheet with the background or use some plain paper.
Hopefully, once Beegu uses your map, she will find her way home. What will it look like? What geographical features might you see? Mountains, seas etc. are examples of geographical features. Once you have thought of what Beegu's home will look like, we would like you to create a landscape and colour it in. If you have paint at home, you could it to paint your landscape instead.
Have a good day everyone!
Tuesday 23rd June 2020
In today's English session, you will be listening to chapter 2 of Philip Pullman's 'The Firework Maker's Daughter'. The skill you will learn is retrieving information from the text.
Your maths session moves onto recognising a third. The lesson you will need, once you have clicked on the link and scrolled down is 'Week 2 - Lesson 1 - Recognise a third'. Below is the worksheet that you can either print or copy.
Yesterday in D.T. you designed and made a logo for your shield and in art you drew a superhero or two. Today, you will be designing a shield (follow day 2 on the PowerPoint) for your logo to go on and continuing with drawing another superhero. As an extra challenge we want you imagine yourself as a superhero and draw a costume that you might wear as a superhero. Think about the special qualities you would also have.
Remember you can share your work on our class blog.
Have a good day everyone
Tuesday 16th June 2020
Good morning, everyone!
In your English session, you will be making inferences from the story 'The Firework Maker's Daughter'. When we make inferences from a text, we guess what the answer could be based on clues from the text, like a detective would to solve a mystery. As usual you need your pencil and some paper to write on before you start.
You will be moving on to learning about fractions in maths. For this session, click on the link within the PowerPoint and have a copy of the worksheet ready before you begin. You can either print it or create your own by copying the one below. For today's lesson, once you have accessed the link, scroll all the way down and click on 'Week 1' first, then 'Lesson 1 - Make equal parts'.
For the next few days until Thursday, we would like you to work on making your own sun catcher. For today's session, download and follow the slides for 'Day 1'. You will also need the sheet 'Design a sun catcher' or you can make your own one.
Log on to Purple Mash and complete the second task for this week's story.
Yesterday you reflected on the things you have been missing and those that you are looking forward to. You will be moving on to thinking about feelings today. There are 3 main points we want you to take from the session 'HUK Back to School - Tuesday', which are:
1) We may experience lots of different feelings.
2) We may not feel the same things at the same time.
3) Some days will be better than others.
Use the example on the slide to make your own grid so that you can complete today's task.
Have a successful day learning and don't forget to upload any work you would like to share on our blog.
For our English lesson today, please click on the link below and watch and follow the lesson. To get started you need to press on the 'Start lesson' tab. Before you start you will need a pencil and some paper to write on. The lesson is about a story written by Philip Pullman called 'The Firework Maker's Daughter'. Once you have finished you can upload a picture of your work onto the Purple Mash blog under the 'Welcome Back' post.
You will begin your maths lesson by finding the missing numbers as quickly as you can on the first slide. You will then learn about comparing numbers and amounts using the mathematical symbol '>' which means 'more than'. Complete the activity on paper and if you're ready for a challenge compare the 3-digit numbers. Don't forget to upload your work on our blog under 'Welcome Back'.
Draw a self portrait for your art lesson and explore how you have been feeling during this different time. It is OK not to feel OK! The PowerPoint will explain more.
Follow the link to the BBC Bitesize website for a science session about the different parts of a plant. There is a link to an activity that you can print. If you do not have access to a printer, you can draw and label your own plant.
