Year 2- Thursday 26th March

Good Morning Year 2 

We hope you are all really well and are ready for another day of learning. Make sure you take frequent breaks, and wash your hands regularly throughout the day. We hope you are enjoying your learning linked with the Enormous Crocodile. We are loving hearing from you and receiving all of your pictures.  Here are just a few from Callum, Aleiya and Ross. What a creative bunch of Year 2 children we have!

               

Remember we love to hear from you and see your work. Please ask your parents and do this using the link in the box below. Over the next few days we will endeavour to send out emails to each of you. These will also contain your Spelling Shed login codes. This is a platform similar to TT Rockstars but for spellings. Please keep an eye out for these and check your spam folders. 

Many thanks,

Year 2 Team 

Helpful Reminders

Don’t forget you can email us on year2@stmarksce.org.uk. We would love to hear from you if you have a question, need a password, need some help, want to show us your work or even just say hello! Please get your grown up’s permission before you email us. We look forward to hearing from you. We may not reply the same day!

Presentation – Please remember to do your very best work. Handwriting and presentation are as important at home as they are in school. You can complete your work in a book or if you need lined or squared paper you can get it here.

Note for parents: Hopefully your children will enjoy working through these activities and can do independently. We completely understand it may be difficult to complete all these tasks due to other family commitments or you are working from home, so please do not worry; complete what you can with your child. 

Ongoing Daily Activities

Here are the daily activities for you to complete each day. We have added a handwriting booklet that you could work through very gradually, not in one go. You can either print the booklet, or do this onto paper of your own at home. We look forward to seeing how amazing your handwriting will be when we see your work. The Common Exception Words should also be learnt gradually, by selecting 2 or 3 words a week that you should aim to learn along side your weekly spellings.

20 minutes of reading either a school book or a home book.

Practice your 2,5 and 1o times tables using TTRockstars, or a different method.

Practice your weekly spellings which will be provided below, and the Year 2 common exception words.

English

In English today, we will be writing a letter to try and persuade the Enormous Crocodile to be a nicer crocodile and to consider being friendlier to all of the little children. To do this we need to be polite to him, tell him what he is doing wrong and make suggestions about what he can do instead. We look forward to reading your letters and will get back to you to tell you how persuaded we are! Have fun!

Maths

Today in maths, we will be continuing to explore time, thinking specifically about durations of time. To help you, please use the flipchart provided to consider how we can work out the duration of time that has passed between different times, before having a go at the worksheet below. Remember to practice telling the time using a watch or clock throughout the day. Hopefully you are getting super confident with o’clock, half past and quarter past and to times now. Challenge yourself and try times with 5 minute intervals too! Remember ‘No way through isn’t true!’.

Resources you will need:

Maths worksheet- 26.03.20

Top tip: On the time that has passed column, you will need to draw where the minute hand started and then mark on where it finishes. You can then shade the amount of time that has passed. 

Art

Over this half term, our art work has involved looking at pattern and using our line and pencil work to add texture and detail to our drawings.  Today we will look at the work of Stephanie Troxell and how she shows detail and gives texture to her drawings, helping them to look both realistic and three dimensional.

Resources you will need:

shell templates

Look carefully at the pictures. Try to use shading and pattern to recreate your own. Remember you can use circles, dots, dashes and lines. 

PE-

Today would be our PE day in school, so it would be great to spend some time getting active! You may choose how to do this, however attached below is just one resource that you could use. Cosmic Kids is a YouTube channel that combines story telling with yoga, and is a fun way to get moving. Enjoy!
