Mrs Stevenson x
 
Good morning 3rd June, 2020.
In your mathematics work today we will be looking at related mathematical facts. This means the other maths facts we can work out from a simple number bond.
For example, 
we know that 5+4=9 so from this we can say 50+40=90.What makes these facts different is one is adding ones and the other is adding tens.
Watch the video then complete the activity. On the activity sheet it mentions base 10.This is equipment we use in school(tens ans ones) so you can use jottings to represent them.
https://resources.whiterosemaths.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Year-2-Week-3-1.pdf
Watch the video, it's lesson 3.

RIC today is lesson 3 of Esio Trot
For your writing today I would like you to research and find out what a tortoise needs to be happy and healthy.What should a tortoise's habitat be like?Write sentences to explain what they like to eat, where they like to sleep and some interesting facts.Here is a you tube link to get you started.

English work for today 1.6.20
Good morning everyone!
1st June, 2020.
Welcome back to home learning.I hope you are all well and are ready for your daily work to start again.
This week in RIC we are going to start reading a Roald Dahl text called Esio Trot.Some of you might have read it before, this is good.If not that's fine too! We will be looking at the text in close detail through our RIC lessons.

In maths we will be looking at number bond fact families.
Watch this video  of lesson 1 and then complete the activity.
https://resources.whiterosemaths.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Year-2-Week-3-1.pdf

For your other English activity today I would like you to complete the homophones activity. The word homophone means same sound. Homophones are words that sound the same but we write them differently and they have different meanings.
For example see and sea, where, were, wear and we're.
Try and find the right homophone to complete each sentence. The answers are provided for your parents to guide you. Try not to peek!

Remember to try to send me some photographs of your work this week.
Love from Mrs Stevenson x

Good morning!
Here is your work for today - 22.5.20
Lesson 1 week 2 compare lengths. Watch the video clip then complete the activity.
https://resources.whiterosemaths.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Year-2-1.pdf

In reading I thought we could strt finding out some background information about an author we would be looking at had we been in school. The author is Roald Dahl.

Your sentence work is about using conjunctions to join two parts of a sentence. A sentence has a clause. Each clause contains a sentence and verb. When there are two separate clauses in one sentence they are joined by a conjunction. This sounds complicated but it really isn't. Look at the activity sheet and it will become clearer.

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Stevenson

Good morning 21.5.20
I hope you are all well today.Watch the video then complete the activity. Here is the link.It is lesson four.
https://resources.whiterosemaths.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Year-2.pdf

For reading today I have uploaded a 60 second read. This is a short extract to read to develop your reading fluency. The aim is to read the extract quite a few times and each time you read it, it should get easier and your fluency will improve.  There are some quick questions to follow too.

Finally there is a spelling, punctuation and grammar activity mat for you to complete.

Remember to always write neatly and keep your work clearly presented.

I look forward to seeing some of it when you send me some photographs.

Have a lovely day,

Love Mrs Stevenson x
Good Morning! 20.5.20
I hope you are all well and are still trying hard to do some of your work each day. You are all doing so well and I am always proud of every effort you make to complete your work.

Today I have given you a reading booklet called 'Secret of the Seas'  which I think you will enjoy.

In sentence work, and with the importance of handwashing at the moment, your activity is to write some instructions/command sentences using bossy verbs about how to properly wash your hands.

Remember a command is a type of sentence and should start with a bossy verb. an example of this would be;
Turn the tap on. In this sentence the word 'turn' is the bossy verb as it gives the command.

Follow the video link here to watch a clip about washing your hands before you write your commands.
https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-body/best-way-to-wash-your-hands/

In maths it is a measure lesson today.Watch the video and then complete the activity.

Good morning everyone.I hope you all had a good weekend.
In today's activities I have included some work on functions of sentences. We have worked on this a lot in claas but here are a few reminders to support you.
There are four main sentence types that we learn about in Year 2. A question sentence, a command sentence, a statement and an exclamation sentence.

Statement - gives a fact
Question - asks a question and needs a question mark
Command - starts with a bossy verb
Exclamation sentence - must begin with what or how and have a !
I have included the answers for parents but no peeking at them!
There is a lovely reading RIC for you today about garden birds and a little hedgehog. I have two hedgehogs in my garden at the moment and they come out every night and make very strage noises during the daytime.

I hope you enjoy your work today and keep emailing me to stay in touch.

Try the second reading comprehension about the rainforest.

Safe Internet Use
Tuesday 31st March
Good afternoon.
A note for parents and carers,
Under current circumstances, your child is being asked to access their learning from home. As you can imagine this means that children will be using and will have access to devices more than ever. Please make sure your child has all the appropriate settings on their devices in order to keep them safe online. I have added a document with some links to sites that parents can use to explain safe internet use  and make sure children are protected online.  
Fantastic work !

Well done Lydia, Maryam and Tristan.

Monday 30th March
Good morning everyone and I hope you are all staying safe and well.
Today I am going to give you some times tables practise and some activities to support your spelling of common exception words. I don't expect you to complete all of these activities this week but you can pick and choose different ones to do over the next few weeks. 

Please use the message board to keep in touch.Send me a message and I will reply.
Rainforest Reading Comprehension RIC

Try to read and complete this RIC activity. There will be a second part to this activity to follow.

Friday 27th March
Good morning year 2 and I hope you are all well. I hope you are all managing to do a little school work each day. Here are a few reminders of what you should try to do for a short time each day.

Reading
You should aim to read for a short time each day. You can readanything you wish.Read your school reading book, your favourite book, some non-fiction texts or a comic. You can read to your parents, your younger siblings or to yourself.Any reading is worthwhile.You can also count the reading activities/comprehension that I have included on the web page as your daily reading.I will also be adding some RIC's for you to try at home too.

Spelling
On the webpage is a link to the common exception words for year 2.Practise a few of these words daily.Look for patterns in the words to help you to learn them.

Maths
You should aim to spend a short amount of time daily on TTRockstars. Remember, not too much screen time.
Look out for fluency activities that I post too!

Finally, remember to have some fun! I know things are tricky at the moment but having some fun family time can be educational too.Play board games, I spy, card games are great for developing basic addition skills. Do a jigsaw, sketch, draw or paint. It's Friday today and the weekend tomorrow, have a break and I will post again on Monday.
I miss you all and look forward to seeing you all very soon.

 
Thursday 26th March
Evening all and I hope you are all still well. Here is a link to the White Rose Home Learning Activity page for Year 2.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/
This will help your child to revise what we have already covered in our maths lessons.
Alfie B's Mum BBC Supermovers

I think watching the videos will be great for Alfie. I don't think he needs to record anything because it will just help him to revise what we have already covered in class.

Welcome to Amethyst's page.
This page will be updated daily to support you and your child in the event of a school closure. There will be a variety of website links, activities, challenges provided to help you to support your child with continued learning. We have included our email contacts should you wish to ask us any questions about your child's work. If you want to send us photographs of your child's work or any completed activities, all that we ask, for safeguarding reasons, is that the photographs don't show any of the children's faces.

Reading- some useful tips!

You should try to aim to read with your child daily. This could be using any reading material at all such as books, comics, ebooks or school reading books. Whilst your child is reading, explore any new words(vocabulary) as they came across it and look up words together in a dictionary to explore new word meanings.

Discuss characters
It is important that your child understands who the main characters are in a text. Before, during and after reading discuss the characters by asking such questions as;

Before reading
Who do you think the character is on the front cover of your book?
Does the blurb tell you anything about the character?

During reading
Can you predict what you think the character of....... might do next?
How does the character of...... change as the story continues?

After reading
What kind of character do you feel ......... is?
