Year 2 Reading

This week the text we will be finding out about harbours. Do you know what a harbour is? 

I would like you to read the text first to find out about Harbours.

When you have done that, you can start skimming and scanning!

Use your Ninja eyes to spot the words on the worksheet. Do any of the words appear more than once.

Remember to keep hold of the Harbours reading sheet because you will need it every day this week.

Maths

Year 1

This week we are going to be looking at numbers to 50. We are going to start by looking at counting to 50 by making 10s.

In school we have practised making bundles of 10 straws and we have looked at sticks of 10.

Can you remember?

Today I would like you to watch the video carefully. At the end of the video, it asks you to practise making 5 groups of 10. Ask your grown up if there is anything in the house to do this with. You could use pencils, pasta, buttons anything at all.

If you do not have enough to make 5 bundles of 10 then see if you can make 3 groups of 10. When you have made the groups of 10, send me a photo. I would love to see them.

There is also a worksheet to complete.

Year 2

Today you are going to learn about tally charts! Tally charts are a good way to keep track of how many of something you have!  Today you have 2 learning videos to teach you all about tally charts! Watch the first one and join in to learn how to make a tally!

Do you understand tally charts now?
One of the most important things to remember is to strike through on the 5th one when you’re counting like this: ||||

Watch your next learning video to see how to use and make tally charts!

When you get onto your challenge you could even use sweets! I had a go using some chocolate beans!

First I put the beans on a plate, then I wrote the colours on my chart and grouped the beans into the same colour groups. I then chose a colour and counted how many there were and recorded the tally and the total.
I’m looking forward to seeing your tally chart examples!

Blue group

Today we are going to think about numbers to 20.

We are going to see if you can remember how we can count objects more easily by making groups of 10 and counting on.

I would like you to watch this video and then complete the independent activity on the video. I have attached the sheet for you if you need it. Don’t forget to try the quiz after the video to test your learning.

Literacy

Year 1 and Blue group: Today we are going to look at special naming words.

Naming words are called nouns. Naming words tell us the names of things.

Watch this video on this link to learn about nouns: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/zpd8ng8

You can try the activity to highlight the common and proper nouns too.

Special naming words have capital letters.

Names of people are special naming words.   Mrs Hill

Days of the week are also special naming words.   Monday   Tuesday

Special naming words are called proper nouns.

Do you know the days of the week? Here is a video of a days of the week song.

 

Today I would like you to answer the questions about a school timetable. All the answers will be a day of the week so remember it needs to start with a capital letter because it is a proper noun.

Blue group – I would like you add a capital letter to the days of the week and then write the days of the week in order.

Year 2: Today we are going to learn some more about contractions.  Can you remember what a contraction is?

If something contracts it gets smaller.

Contractions are words that are smaller because:

·         a letter or letters are missed out

·         an apostrophe goes in place of the missing letter or letters.

Watch this video to find out more about contractions:

Here is a video showing you how two words go together to make a contraction:

This is an apostrophe:

Look at these examples:

I am sorry                         I’m sorry

I have lost my book.          I’ve lost my book.

 

There are lots of contractions with not.

That is not right                  That isn’t right.

They have not arrived.          They haven’t arrived.

The of not is missed out. 

Today I would like you to write the contractions with not and write sentences using contractions.

Remember your apostrophes where the missing letter or letters would be when you are writing the contractions.

Science

What is a food chain? Have you got any ideas?

A food chain shows how each animal gets its food.

Here is an example of a food chain:

Grass is eaten by the grasshopper who is eaten by the mouse who is eaten by the owl.

Watch this clip to learn more about food chains:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx882hv/articles/z3c2xnb

You can try the quiz after you watch the video clip too!

Next, take a look at the power point to help you learn more about food chains!

As you work through the power point it will ask you to sort cards into a food chain, you can find the cards needed for this activity below.

Your main learning activity is to construct (make) a food chain using the cards provided on your worksheets.
