Week beginning 20th April

 

Wednesday22nd April

Good morning, Year 2, how is everyone today? What have you all been up to?

 

Look at the beans now! To carry on with the next part of our project, we are going to find what plants need to grow.

 

I am going to keep the plants in different conditions and see what happens to them.

 

I will keep two on the windowsill where they will get lots of light, but I will only water one of them. I will put the other two in a cupboard where they will get no light. I will only water one of them.

 

These are the different plants:

Plant A – water and light

Plant B – no water, will be in light

Plant C – water, no light

Plant D – no water, no light

What do you predict will happen to each plant? Can you send me your predictions?

 

 

 

Monday 20th April

Good morning everybody, I have had a good look at all the resources that have been made available this morning and have put together a suggested schedule for the week. The lessons don’t have to be done in any particular order in the day, but Maths and English lessons should follow the daily order. Please remember, none of this is compulsory, you and the children can dip in and out of it as you like.

 

The three websites that you will need to access are:

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons

https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/schedule/#

 

For all of these, just select Year 2 and the relevant week or date.

 

I am suggesting the 2 week White Rose Hub home learning scheme for Maths. This is on fractions, which we started to cover before school closed. The children may be familiar with some elements, but it is a tricky topic, so it will be good for them to consolidate and develop their learning further. They are fine to have a go at the Maths lessons on BBC Bitesize and the Oak Academy sites as well if they wish.

 

You will notice that there are two English-based lessons on most days. This is because one will focus on reading and the other on grammar, punctuation or writing – this is what we usually do in school. The BBC Bitesize English sessions are quite long – please don’t worry about children completing all three activities that are set, although if they want to, that’s great.

 

Please let me know how you get on and if you have any issues accessing the resources. I will also set some activities on Mathletics, Purple Mash and Bug Club to tie in with the activities this week – again, not compulsory!

Sunday 19th April

Good afternoon, Year 2!

Now that the Easter holidays are over, we are back to normal tomorrow (well, as normal as we can be!), so I will be setting work on Purple Mash and Mathletics and giving you other challenges.

BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy (both backed by the government) will be posting daily lessons in maths, English and other subjects from tomorrow, so I think we should all have a look at them in the morning and give them a try tomorrow.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zn9447h

https://www.thenational.academy/

None of the resources are available yet, so I can't ask you to do anything specific until I see them tomorrow, but I'm hoping they will be really useful.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what you've all been up to and hearing from you again - missing you all lots.

See you in the morning!

Week beginning 13th April 2020

 

Good morning Year 2, how are you all? I hope everyone had a nice Easter weekend.

Gracie helped me to plant the beans in compost ready for the next part of our science project. I have captioned each picture. Can you turn them into a piece of writing - either a recount telling what happened or a set of instructions?

You will need to remember to use the correct tense (past tense for a recount, present tense for instructions), time words (first, next, then, after that, finally), and bossy words if you’re writing instructions. Try to include an introduction (it’s good to ask a question in your introduction) and a conclusion.

Week Beginning 30th March 2020

 

Friday 3rd April

 

Good morning all! 

 

Today we should officially be breaking up for the Easter holidays so instead of posting daily activities, I will be giving you a list of ideas to keep you occupied and entertained over the next two weeks.

 

To start with, this is a great idea from Liverpool Museums to create your own museum or art gallery exhibitions at home and share them on social media. It would be great to see some from Dovecot!
https://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/my-home-my-museum

 

Whizz, Pop, Bang! is an online science magazine for children. You can pay for a subscription, but there are also lots of fabulous free resources that you can find here:
https://www.whizzpopbang.com/free-resources/

 

Phonics Play is a website we use often in school and membership is completely free at the moment. Activities are ordered by Phases under the Resources section. The site has been redesigned so that it is mobile and tablet friendly. Join here:
https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/

 

Remember, ictgames.com has lots of maths and spelling activities as does https://pages.sumdog.com/ which is free to all parents at the moment.

 

You will find lots of moving and learning ideas here:
https://tagtiv8.com/move-learn-home/

 

Don't forget, we still have Mathletics, Reading Eggs, Bug Club and Epic Books as well, so you should have plenty to keep you busy!

 

Please keep in touch, I'll post more ideas throughout the day.

 

Thursday 2nd April

Hello everybody, I had some wifi issues this morning, but everything seems to be okay now.

How are you all?

Our Purple Mash display boards are filling up nicely - I hope you're all having a look at them.

Remember to keep going on Bug Club, Epic Books and Reading Eggs as well as reading your own books and don't forget all the great maths and spelling games on ictgames.com. You may also want to go on DK Kids which has got lots of information about every topic you can think of! www.dkfindout.com/uk/

Well done to Jack, Kristoffe and Olivia for completing Mathletics activities.

There has been no change with the broad beans yet. I'll post a picture as soon as there is.

Please keep me up to date with what you have been doing - it really cheers me up.

 

Wednesday 1st April

 

Good morning, everybody. Happy April Fool's Day!

For the rest of the week, your Maths activity will be set on Mathletics each day for you.

 

For English, I would like you to choose a subject that interests you and spend a few days researching it either by finding information online or in books (don't forget, there are lots of non-fiction books on Epic Books). It can be a topic that we have looked at in class such as The Great Fire of London or The World or any other topics such as Space, Dinosaurs or Animals.  Once you have enough information, write about your chosen subject, either in your work books or on a leaflet template on Purple Mash. 

 

I have started the Science activity for us to do together. I will post pictures of what I have done so far and will post updates each day. Using the sheets in the Home Learning Pack, can you draw and label one of the cups with the broad bean in?

 

Geography - we have looked at maps of the world, but now can you find some maps of our local area? Google maps is a good site to use for this. Can you draw a map of your route from your house to school?

 

There are lots of books set for you on Bug Club and we have managed to keep Reading Eggs for another month so keep seeing how many eggs you can collect.

 

If you haven't been doing them already, Joe Wicks is doing a PE session for kids each day on You Tube - give it a try or make up your own PE lesson based on what you have been doing with Amy.
https://www.thebodycoach.com/blog/pe-with-joe-1254.html

 

Don't forget about the free resources on Twinkl - there is a great Topic and Events calendar full of interesting information and activities to keep you busy!

 

Tuesday 31st March

Today's activities:

Monday 30th March

Good morning everyone, how was your weekend?

Today's challenges are:

Maths
Complete the Giving Change activity you have been set on Purple Mash. You will need to work out how much change is needed first, then select the correct coins to give.
Even though this is subtraction, the best method to use is to count on using a number line. I have attached some pictures to Class Dojo to demonstrate.
As you do the activity, use your workbook to draw your number lines out to help you. You may be able to do some mentally (abstract).

English
Complete the suffixes activity you have been set on Purple Mash. Then, using any of the writing prompts you got in your learning packs, write the best story you can. Try to include some of the words from the activity.
Think about spelling (you should be getting good at that!), handwriting and vocabulary.


Reading
Read the book you have been set on Bug Club (only use the Read to Me option if that's what you usually do in class!) and answer the questions.

Science

I am going to do the activity in the Home Learning packs and post photos each day so we can all follow it together. Please read through the pack and tell me what equipment I will need and what I need to do to start. You can either write in your books and send me a picture, or type your answers directly onto Class Dojo for me.

Please carry on with the spelling and times table activities and the other challenges I set you last week. Who is going to be first to post a video of a new dance they have learnt????

I can't wait to hear from you all!

Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome to Year 2! 1

Feeling very strange about not seeing my gorgeous class tomorrow, but hope you all have a good week.

 

Home Learning

Twinkl, a website that teachers use a lot for resources, are giving parents free membership for a month. You will find lots of interactive resources and activity ideas on there.

This link tells you more about it and how to join:

Once you join, search for Year 2 interactive learning links (or open the file attached) and you will get a list of daily activities to do for Reading, Writing, Maths, Science and Topic.

 

Let me know how you get on.

I am really looking forward to getting to know the amazing children in my class this year. We will be very busy getting ready for KS1 SATs, but we will be having lots of fun along the way, I hope.

 

We will keep you updated with what we are doing on Class Dojo, so if you haven't joined yet, please do. It would be lovely for you to share pictures of activities the children have done at home on there too. Also, look out for us on Twitter and Instagram. 

 

Reading will be huge focus for the whole school this year, so please try to read with your child as often as you can. This can include their school reading books, but also books of the children's own choice. Reading your child a bedtime story is also a great way to end the day. Research shows that children who read at home and are read to by adults at home go on to do significantly better in all areas of life - it really is so important.

 

Year 2 homework will be project-based and given out each half term, along with weekly spellings.

 

PE is every Thursday, so please ensure your child has a PE kit in school.

 

Please feel free to speak to me at any time if you have any questions or concerns. Here's to a great year!
