# Monday

## Good morning Troughton class!

I hope you have had a lovely weekend enjoying the sunshine! I played a bit of badminton in the garden which was fun until I accidentally hit the shuttlecock over the fence! Oops!

It is our last week of online learning and your last week in Year 2!

Well done for continuing to do your online learning, you are fabulous and I am so super-duper proud of you!!!
Keep sending me your emails: troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

Today I have a short reading comprehension for you to have a go at! Read all of the text first, then read the questions and check back in the text to find the answers!

## Maths: Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups

This week we will continue recapping some of our learning. For today and tomorrow’s learning we will recap our fraction learning.

A fraction is a part of a whole, for example ½

The numerator (top number) tells you how many parts of the whole you have or need to show.
The denominator (bottom number) tells you how many parts make up the whole.

Red and Orange groups:

Look at the fraction wall, it shows you how many of each fraction makes up the whole.
Use the fraction wall to solve the questions asking you how many parts of different fraction amounts make a whole.

Yellow and Green groups:

Look at the fraction diagrams, how much are they showing?
How many parts are there altogether? How many are shaded blue?
If there are 4 parts and 2 are shaded blue the fraction would be 2/4 as 2 parts out of 4 are shaded.

Join the fraction diagrams to the written fraction amounts.

## Maths: Blue group

Today we are going to be comparing numbers. We are going to read numbers in tens and ones like we did last week and find the largest or the smallest. Then we are going to use equal to (=), more than (>) and less than (<) to compare numbers. Do you remember when we did this a few weeks ago?

## Literacy: Blue and Red groups

Today we are going to revise some of the grammar we have been learning this year. This means look aback at what we have already learnt.

We have learnt so much!

• naming words (nouns) and special naming words that all need a capital letter
• different sentences
• statements which start with a capital letter and end with a full stop. This is a dog.
• questions which start with a capital letter and ends with a question mark (?)
• sentences which show how people are feeling start with a capital letter and end with an exclamation mark.
• Doing words (verbs)
• Plurals (more than one)
• Prefixes (-ed -ing) and suffixes (un)

Now try the worksheet to see how you do.

## Literacy: Orange, Yellow and Green groups

Conjunctions are words we use to join sentences.

The conjunction and, but and or are used to join sentences.

I like the chocolate cake and I ate a big slice.

I like the chocolate but I was too full to eat any more.

I sometimes like chocolate cake or I sometimes like fruit.

Two other conjunctions are so and because.

Put the chairs on the table so I can sweep the floor.

I don’t eat cabbage because I don’t like it.

Watch the videos to find out about conjunctions.

## Science

In our Science learning we have looked at different animal groups. Can you remember the name of the 6 animal groups?

Today we are going to group the animals in a different way.

Different animals eat different types of foods.
We can group animals by the different types of food they eat.
Some animals are carnivores, some are herbivores and some are omnivores.

Carnivores eat meat.

Herbivores eat plants.

Omnivores eat meat and plants.

Watch the video to find out what more about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.

Now I would like you to complete your worksheet to show me what you have learnt.
