I hope you are having a good week so far and are ready for another day of learning.
Please watch today’s videos on RWI YouTube channel. They will show at 9.30am and will be available for 24 hours.
If you are in Miss Barnett’s group and Mrs Beech’s group you will need to watch the set 2 speed sounds, word time and spelling videos.
If you are in Miss Meakin’s group you will need to watch the set 3 speed sounds, word time and spelling videos. When you have completed this lesson, try the reading longer words lesson.
I have attached the link below. Just scroll down to find the videos you need.
Year 2 Reading
Let’s start by warming up by counting in 2s:
Today our learning is all about comparing sentences. We have used the < (less than), > (more than) and = (equal) signs to compare numbers before. Today we are going to be using those signs to compare maths sentences.
Click on the video clip and listen carefully to your learning for today. https://vimeo.com/497920660
Make equal groups grouping
Yesterday you learnt how to make equal groups by sharing. Today you are learning how to make equal groups by grouping. When we make equal groups by grouping we know how many are in each group but not how many groups there are altogether. We start with the total amount and share them into groups of an amount.
If there is a picture with the total we can sometimes circle the groups of an amount and see how many groups it made altogether.
Watch the video in the link below to learn how to make equal groups by grouping:
Once again, remember you can use some items you have at home to practically work out the answers if you need to.
Let’s practise our learning from yesterday.
Yesterday, we learnt how to use symbols to compare numbers.
So, if we look at these numbers 6 and 3.
I know 6 is more than 3 or 6 is greater than 3 so I can use this symbol > to write the number sentence: 6 > 3
Look at these numbers 5 and 10.
I know 5 is less than 10 or 5 is less than 10 so I can use this symbol < to write the number sentence: 5 < 10
Look at these numbers 6 and six.
I know that the number 6 is the same as the number word six or 6 is equal to six so I can use this symbol = to write the number sentence 6 = six
If you are still unsure, watch the video from yesterday to help you.
Now try the worksheet to practise your learning.
Today we are going to look at rhyming words. Rhyming words have the same sound but not always the same letters.
Watch the video to find out all about rhyming words. After the video scroll down because there are two activities to see if you can find rhyming words.
See if you can match rhyming words. Open up rhyming words activity and complete.
Now you are going to think of a rhyming word so you can write your own poem.

The wise man and the foolish man,
This week we are learning about a story of two men. One man built his house on a rock, the other man built his house on top of sand.
When it rained what do you think happened?
The man who built his house on a rock was called wise, wise means that he was clever and thought things through. The man who built his house on the sand was called foolish, why do you think he was foolish? Today I have two tasks for you to do:
Task 1 is a song: I want you to watch and join in with the song about the wise man and the foolish man here: https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/media/video/2017-01-110-the-wise-man-and-the-foolish-man?lang=eng
Task 2 is an experiment: I want you to make 2 houses out of lego, sticks, duplo, play-dough, whatever you have at home that is waterproof. Take them outside and put one house on top of a rock and the other on sand if you have it, if not use soil. You could put them in your bath or in a tray if you don’t have a garden. Use the watering can or hose to pour water over the top. What happens? What would you use to build your house on top of? I can’t wait to see what it looks like.
The World Around Me: Our Goals - To learn what to do if we come across difficulties.
For our PSHE learning today we are going to be thinking about how to overcome difficulties.
When we want to do something in our life there can be things that make it tricky for us to reach our goals.
Today’s learning is about trying to think more positively about what we can do when facing difficulties.
Look through the power point and answer the questions. Then you will complete a worksheet identifying something you find difficult and thinking of things you CAN do to make this easier for you.
