## Wednesday Reading Y2

Maths

Year 1 and Blue group

Today we are going to measure length. We are going to use objects.

When we measure, we have to make sure that the objects we are using are all the same size. We also need to line the objects up side by side so we do not leave spaces between the objects.

Look at this picture. We are measuring the length of the pencil using paper clips. All the paper clips are the same and there are no gaps between each one.

Tell your grown up how long the pencil is.

Did you say 5? Well done! The pencil is 5 paper clips long.

Now watch the video to find out more about measuring length. You are going to be measuring with objects you can find in your home. Watch the video. At the end you are going to measure different things and you are going to find different things to measure with?  See what you can find. You can record your maths learning on the activity sheet I have attached.

Here is a reminder of some 3-D shapes and their names:

For your maths learning today you are learning how to count edges on a 3-D shape.
Here is a reminder of some 3-D shapes and their names:

A cube

Maybe you can find some 3-D shapes in your home to practise counting the edges. Let me know what shapes you find and how many edges they have!

Use the interactive tools on the link below to practise counting the edges on a cube and a tetrahedron.

If you click the faces it will count them up for you! Click and drag the shape to find the sides you haven’t counted yet.

Watch the video below to learn how to count edges. Make sure you pause the video when asked and have a go at the activities.

Now you are ready to complete your learning!

Literacy

Yesterday we looked at the facts Rabbit found out about grey wolves from his information book.

Today you are going to find more facts about wolves so we can write our information tomorrow.

You will need to watch some videos and read about wolves then write down what you have found out. You can write notes. You do not need to write sentences. Notes are for you so you can remember what you want to write tomorrow.

You are going to find out:

• what grey wolves look like (appearance)
• what they eat
• where they live (habitat)
• interesting facts about wolves

I have made a video to help you with this learning.

Keep your notes because you will need them tomorrow.

Blue group: Today I would like you to write sentences about what a wolf looks like. You can use your labelling sheet to help you.

I might write:

A wolf has big ears.

Art

This week we are going to be looking at sculpture, in particular junk modelling.

You are going to inventing, designing and making your very own animal. It can look like whatever you want it to look like. It can be big or small.

You are going to use junk materials to make your animal, such as boxes, tubes, lids. If you do not have enough boxes or materials to do this, you can make a collage with bits of materials or draw/paint your very own animal.

Your animal needs to be able to survive in its environment. It might need to hide from predators so it might need to camouflage itself.

When you invent and design your animal. Draw it first. That way you can make see what junk materials you are going to need. Think about these questions:

How does it travel?

Where will the head and eyes go?

Will it have ears?

What other features will it have?

Here is my design.

When you have designed your animal then you can make it. This is my animal.

Can you see I have used a box for the body, toilet rolls for the legs and a yoghurt carton for the head and egg box for the eyes? Ask a grown up what you can use to help you make your very own animal.

Have fun with it and don’t forget to send me a picture of your junk model animals.

Story time
