Week Beginning 25 January 2021 and before

smiley Welcome to Year 2!

2020-2021 frown 
 

 

Remote Learning,  Week beginning Monday 25th January 2021

 

You should have all received a curriculum newsletter at the end of last half term with the title 'Whose Earth is it Anyway?', a copy of which can be found on our 'letters' page which can be found on the 'Parents' tab. Please familiarise yourself with this as we will be trying to stick to our curriculum as much as possible. 

 

Please see below the key tasks for each subject.

 

We will do our best to provide you with some downloadable resources along with helpful websites and activities that don't require a computer- please encourage your child to complete the written aspects of the work (parents- you do enough already!) It is essential that this page is checked on a daily basis for updates. If your child is unable to work on a computer/ tablet at home then please inform their class teacher when they first call you  or call/email the school. Please also remember that you will be contacted via a withheld number when phone calls home are being made.

We love to see the work that you are completing at home, however please do not feel obliged to send it on a daily basis- instead choose some of your favourite pieces from the week to share. We will do our best to reply as quickly as possible, but please bear with us!

 

 

 

As always, thank you for your co-operation.

Mrs Allen, Miss Ellgood, Mrs Humphris & Mrs Blakeman

Year 2's Timetable

 

 If your child is finding home learning a challenge, it may benefit them to stick to a routine each day (even if it's just for part of it). 

If you are unable to print the activities, packs are available every Monday to collect from the office. Please let the office know if you would like to start collecting these.

Doodle

 

We will continue to set Doodle Maths, Doodle English and sometimes Doodle Spelling homework on a Friday. If you are having a go at Doodle Tables, please focus on 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s.

Let's earn some more Doodle certificates, Year 2!

 

 

Friday 29th January

Please be aware that although we are setting a full day of work each day, we do not want you to feel overwhelmed. Do not worry if you do not complete every activity each day, but please try to at least watch the videos and play some of the interactive games so that some of the learning has been accessed.

If you are unable to print the work, please contact the office and you may collect a pack- if you do this then you will still need to look at the website each day for guidance. Please only collect this work if it is needed, as I'm sure you will understand the office are also very busy at the moment. 

 

Subject Task and Online Resources
Maths

Please start your Maths learning with some quick mental arithmetic. If you have access to a PC/tablet, this should be using the 'daily 10' activity (see link) Please focus on level 1 or level 2- the idea is that your children are able to solve these problems quickly and fluently not for them to need a lot of support.  

Daily 10 - Mental Maths Challenge - Topmarks 

 

Today you are going to be looking at multiplying by 3 again. Take a look at the activity below that involves doing this on a number line, try and have a go at least 2 of the pages. 

Also see if you are ready to have a go at Hit The Button Times Tables and select ‘X3’... you could even have a go at ‘Hit the Question’ to challenge yourself. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button  

Extension: Use your knowledge of threes to help you solve these calculations- 

0x3= 

Double 3 = 

3x7= 

12x3= 

3groups of 9= 

3 multiplied by 3=

Spellings and Grammar 

 

Today we will be practising the year 2 spellings: 

told, both, old, and cold 

Download the activity for this or have a go at ‘look, cover, write, check’. 

When you have practised the spellings, put each of them into a sentence. Make sure you check your sentences after for correct punctuation and spelling, perhaps you could try varying your sentences by including a question mark (for a question) and an exclamation mark if you write a scary/exciting or shocking sentence. E.g. ‘Has anybody told you that it is cold in the Arctic?’ 

You may do more than one sentence for each spelling- perhaps you can try and include more than one of the spellings in some sentences.  

 

Science

Today we are going to learn a bit more about how animals survive in the polar regions. First watch the video about The Arctic and Antarctic again and write a list (remember to use commas) of some of the animals that are found in each.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1h-9TSu4wE&safe=true This short video may also be useful https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zrgygk7 

 

Look at the powerpoint or watch Miss Ellgood read through it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sClq6anVofQ

 

 You might want to check this video out again too  

Choose two animals from each region and answer the question ‘How does this animal survive in its habitat?’

Today we will be looking at counting in 3’s- this is not something that we have covered very much this year so we will be spending the rest of the week looking at it. Start your lesson with one of these videos, these are a great way to help you learn them (one of which is the video that you all filmed last half term). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjdScoq-C4A&safe=true  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWxPKnLtnus&safe=true  

Take a look at the activity below and practise counting on in 3’s using a number square, you may wish to complete your number square before having a go at the first part of the activity (completing the number sequences). 

Extension: Using a number sqaure or a strategy from Miss Ellgood’s video from Monday, have a go at answering these questions:

Today you are going to imagine that you are going on an expedition to the North Pole. Watch the video showing a good example and then complete the activity below (if you cannot print it write some sentences about what you would take with you).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9tF-ca7y2I 

Think about- 

*Food 

*Clothes 

*Equipment 

*A special item of your choice. 

 

You must use so or but in each of your sentences e.g. I will take a thick coat with me so that I can keep warm.’ 

I will take a tent but I will also need a sleeping back if I want to stay warm. 

 

PE

Let's warm up to some tiger songs today! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30RnZP4L78w

This week we are going to continue to complete the activities from this circuit below- you may have already started recording your results which is great!  You should spend just one minute (60 seconds) on each activity. 

Target aim (throw something into a hoop/ a different target...be creative!) See how many you get in. 

*Sit ups 

*Catches (beanbag/ball or whatever you have access to) this could be how many catches you can do by yourself or with someone else.  

*Shuttle runs (see how many times you can run from one marker to another (this can be done in a small space). Don’t forget to ‘pivot’ when you are turning. 

Just like last week, record how many you did of each (see optional table to record on below). Have you improved any of your scores since last time?  If you find something tricky, please spend a little bit longer working on this skill.  

At the end of the session make sure you cool down. This slows down breathing and your heart rate as well as returns your muscles to their normal length to avoid stiffness and sire muscles the next day.  Use these videos for your cool down.

English

Today we are going to learn some more about the Arctic and Antarctic. 

 Watch Miss Ellgood read the English  powerpoint ‘ (or download and read it yourself). You may have already watched this to help you with your Geography yesterday. 

 

Write some sentences about what the physical and human features are in the Arctic and Antarctic. Try to use ‘but’ or ‘and’ in some of your sentences E.g. The Arctic and the Antarctic have mountains.  

 

 

Don’t forget to check your sentences for correct spelling, capital letters and full stops. If you spot any mistakes then change it in a different colour pencil. ‘Arctic’ and ‘Antarctic’ are proper nouns because they are the name of a place, so they MUST have capital letters.  

Geography

If you missed yesterdays learning please complete the following first.

*To start our geography learning today, remind yourself about some world facts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wg-pFtvsvmo 

 

This week we are going to start our learning about the polar regions. 

What are polar regions? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5VRoGTF60s

 

Look at a map/ globe/ Google Earth and identify the arctic regions. https://earth.google.com/web/  

Listen to Miss Ellgood share some facts with you about the polar regions (or look at the powerpoint yourself).https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qvqaCYTIVY

 

Watch the videos below to learn more about the differences between the Arctic and The Antarctic.  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1h-9TSu4wE 

We have written some facts about the Arctic and The Antarctic BUT they are all muddled! Sort them out into which polar region they match (see below).   

 

Tuesday's Geography; building on Monday's.

Take a look at these facts about polar bears https://www.dkfindout.com/uk/animals-and-nature/bears/polar-bear/  and watch the short video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEFASpHL9nM&safe=true   Write 2 ways that polar bears can survive in the Arctic. 

 

The lives of polar bears have been put in danger due to humans not taking care of the Earth.  There is oil in the Arctic Ocean and the ice is melting. This stops the polar bears being able to catch the food they need to give them energy (seals). Watch the video again with a grown up and write down one way that you and your family could help to save the polar bears by leading a more environmentally friendly life.  

 

Watch the video about The Arctic and The Antarctic.  

We got a bit muddled with animal lives where, can you sort the animals depending on where they live?  See worksheet.

Choose some animals from the Arctic to draw to go on your collage tomorrow (you may also colour the pictures that are on the document below).

Spellings and Grammar 

 

Today we will be practising the year 2 spellings:   door, floor, poor, because and hold 

 

You can either download the activity for this or have a go at ‘look, cover, write, check’ as well as putting these spellings into a sentence.

 Make sure you check your sentences after for correct punctuation and spelling, perhaps you could try varying your sentences by including a question mark (for a question) and an exclamation mark if you write a scary/exciting or shocking sentence. E.g. ‘There was a gust of wind and the door slammed shut!’ 

Science

Today we will be looking at some more wild animals that might be found in the local environment. Look at the encyclopedia links to learn about how this animals survive and find food and then complete the activity below by cutting out the facts and matching them with the correct animal. If you can't print the activity, write some facts about badgers, rabbits and swans using the facts on the encyclopedia links.

R.E.

Today we are thinking about what believers (of religious traditions) teach us about getting on with each other? 

 

Muslims have to observe five pillars of Islam; 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9U8T8x1AhQ 

 

  • The declaration of faith 

  •  Praying 5 time a day; 

  •  Fasting for the full month of Ramadan 

  • Giving compulsory charity as fixed by Allah on saving only called Zakah once every year; 

  •  going to Makkah once in the life time to do Hajj in the month of Dhul Hajj, if financially affordable, 

 

Focusing on Hajj today and the aspect which teach people how we should interact with each other so that we could live together in peace: -During Hajj, Muslims wear special clothing called Ihram.

The purpose of this is to show equality and global citizenship; everyone is equal and. The world belongs to everyone and everyone has a responsibility for caring for it and everything that is in it.

Watch the story of The Messy Magpie again. Take a look at Miss Ellgood’s video reading through the WAGOLL (What A Good One Looks Like). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCdC2KaiNqI

Pretend that you are the Messy Magpie. Write a letter persuading the humans to start looking after their local environment by not throwing their rubbish on the floor. Make sure you use the conjunctions ‘because’ and ‘if’ to explain your reasons and extend your sentences. You should also try to use some of these key words: 

  • warn 

  •  damage 

  • mess litter 

  •  please  

  • important  

  • if  

  • help  

  • recycle 

  •  destroy  

After you have finished your writing, check that you have used capital letters, full stops (or exclamation marks) and finger spaces, Have your year 1 and 2 common word mat handy so that you are spelling these words correctly (see below).

Let’s warm up today with some of our favourite dinosaur songs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A89xj4c7pow&safe=true and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Imhi98dHa5w&safe=true  

This week we are going to continue to complete the activities from this circuit below- you may have already started recording your results which is great!  You should spend just one minute (60 seconds) on each activity. 

Target aim (throw something into a hoop/ a different target...be creative!) See how many you get in. 

*Sit ups 

*Catches (beanbag/ball or whatever you have access to) this could be how many catches you can do by yourself or with someone else.  

*Shuttle runs (see how many times you can run from one marker to another (this can be done in a small space). Don’t forget to ‘pivot’ when you are turning. 

Just like last week, record how many you did of each (see optional table to record on below). Have you improved any of your scores since last time?  If you find something tricky, please spend a little bit longer working on this skill.  

At the end of the session make sure you cool down. This slows down breathing and your heart rate as well as returns your muscles to their normal length to avoid stiffness and sire muscles the next day.  Use these videos for your cool down.

If your child has found this week’s work challenging, please just focus on them being able to recognise numbers and a number square quickly today instead. You could call a number out and get them to circle it or play ‘Helicopter  Rescue’ ‘Find a number’.

If they are ready to move on, do the activity below:  

 

Today we will be looking at adding ‘near 10’ to 2 digit numbers. 

 

Use your knowledge of adding 10 on a number square; when adding 9, remember that it is only one less than 10 so the easy way to do it would be to add 10 and take away 1. Similarly, when adding 11 we could do add 10 and then add one more.  Have a go at completing these calculations: 

24+9=   32+9=   51+9=   43+11=   72+11=   66+11=

Today we will be practising the year 2 spellings: 

Find, kind, mind, behind, child 

You can either download the activity for this or have a go at ‘look, cover, write, check’ as well as putting these spellings into a sentence. Make sure you check your sentences after for correct punctuation and spelling, perhaps you could try varying your sentences by including a question mark (for a question) and an exclamation mark if you write a scary/exciting or shocking sentence. E.g. ‘Can you help me find my keys?” 

 

Science

We are learning about the ocean habitat and animal adaptations. 

What is an ocean habitat? 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx882hv/articles/zsfkd2p 

 

We are learning about how some sea creature are adapted to their environment.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zs2jmp3 

 

 

A look at how fish are adapted to live in water, including the use of camouflage. At the Sea Life Centre in Brighton, there are sea creatures of different types, shapes and colours with one thing in common – they are all well adapted to life in water. One such adaptation is the use of camouflage. Some fish use a dull, plain colour to blend in with their background, while others, such as tropical fish, are brightly coloured to match the coral of their habitat. 

 

https://study.com/academy/lesson/ocean-animal-adaptations-lesson-for-kids.html 

This is a has some interesting short videos about the adaptions of several sea creatures.  The first few minutes of the videos tell you some good information e.g. The beginning part of this is about breathing in the ocean; whales blow holes and fishes gills. 

 After this it then asks you to subcribe but you don't need to do this to watch the short clips. I think these short videos tell us just enough very succinctly. 

 

Choose a few of these creature and draw a picture of them and write a sentence explaining what you have found out about how they are adapted to live in the ocean.

 

Also addition fun information about aquatic creatures can be watched on CBB Andy’s Aquatic Adventures.

If you have a number square (see attachment below or use the interactive number square http://www.mathszone.net/mw/number/100sq/index.html ) have a go at picking a range of 2-digit numbers and subtract 10 from them. Write down your number sentences ,e.g. 23-10=13. 

Now have a go at subtracting 10 from some other 2 digit numbers. Alternatively you could continue with your work using the number square activity from yesterday (see below).

 

Extension activity if you finish and have time: have a go at completing these number sequences, you may use your number square to help you: 

12, 22, 32 __, ___, __, __, __, __, __ 

45 __, ___, __, __, __,  

87, 77, 67, __, ___, ___, ___ 

54, 44, 34, __, ___, ___,

An adverb tells us more about a verb and often ends in the suffix –ly. For example, in the sentence ‘The man walked quickly’ the adverb ‘quickly’ tells us how the man is running. 

Look at the sentences below (or open the file) and re-write it using an interesting ‘said’ word and an adverb from the word bank (replace the hightlighed words). 

“At last,” he said “I have found my paradise.” 

 

“At last,” he cried joyfully. “I have found my paradise.” 

 

1.”POOH! There is nothing on this planet but mess!” He said. 

 

2.”Build me a rocket to reach the stars.” He said.

Warm up to ‘Fit Friday Favourites Video’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aH_q9AX9zwc  

A warm up prepares the body for physical activity in the following ways: 

Increases heart rate 

  1. Makes muscles and joints more flexible 

  1. Helps oxygen get to your muscles 

  1. Increases your body temperature 

 

Each week we are going to complete the activities from this circuit below. You should spend just one minute (60 seconds) on each activity. 

Target aim (throw something into a hoop/ a different target...be creative!) See how many you get in. 

*Sit ups 

*Catches (beanbag/ball or whatever you have access to) this could be how many catches you can do by yourself or with someone else.  

*Shuttle runs (see how many times you can run from one marker to another (this can be done in a small space). Don’t forget to ‘pivot’ when you are turning. 

Every week we would like you to record how many you did of each (see optional table to record on below) in hope that this improves each time. If you find something tricky, please spend a little bit longer working on this skill.  

At the and of the session make sure you cool down. This slows down breathing and your heart rate as well as returns your muscles to their normal length to avoid stiffness and sire muscles the next day.  Use these videos for your cool down.

Subject Task and Online Resources
Maths

Please start your Maths learning with some quick mental arithmetic. If you have access to a PC/tablet, this should be using the 'daily 10' activity (see link) Please focus on level 1 or level 2- the idea is that your children are able to solve these problems quickly and fluently not for them to need a lot of support. 

Daily 10 - Mental Maths Challenge - Topmarks

 

 

Today we will be looking at adding multiples of 10 to 2-digit numbers. 

First practise counting in tens using this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8CEOlAOGas&safe=true.  

Now write down your 10 times table (1x10=10, 2x10=20 etc). 

Have a go at the game 'Chopper Squad' and select '10 more or less.'

Chopper Squad More or Less - Mental Maths Game - 5 to 7 Year Olds (topmarks.co.uk)

The rule that we need to know when adding a multiple of ten is that the tens get bigger but the units stay the same! 

If you have a number square (see attachment below or use the interactive number square http://www.mathszone.net/mw/number/100sq/index.html ) have a go at picking a range of 2-digit numbers and add 10 to them. Write down your number sentences e.g. 23+10=33. 

 

When you are confident at adding and subtracting 10, have a go at adding or subtracting a different multiple of 10 to your numbers, e.g. 23+20= 43 or 23+50=73. 

 

There is an additional activity uploaded below if you wish to have a go.

in the story that we are looking at, Dinosaurs and all that rubbish, the authors use of the verb ‘said’ a lot. 

 Today we would like you to think about what words you could use instead to make some sentences more interesting! Eg shouted, cried, whispered, groaned. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zajin6nnUkk 

 

Check the words you have thought of using the Said word mat.

Maths

Please start your maths learning with some quick mental arithmetic (Daily 10 if you have access to it).  The purpose of this is to develop the children's abilities to do simple maths quickly in their heads and is an essential part of their maths lessons. 

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10  Please work through Level 1 first to develop your child's ability to do quick fire mental arithmetic.

 

Today we will continue looking at 2-digit numbers by comparing them. The instructions below can be found in the document titled ‘Greater than and Less than’ if you wish to complete the problems on a printed sheet.  

In year 2 you need to understand the symbols Greater than > (which points up the number line/ruler where the numbers get bigger) and Less Than <. The other important symbol is Equal To/the Same As =.  

Have a go at using these symbols in the game Greater Alligator where the alligator eats the biggest number.

Start with this game:

ttps://www.softschools.com/math/greater_than_less_than/alligator_greater_than_game/  

Using a number square (see attachment below or use the interactive number square http://www.mathszone.net/mw/number/100sq/index.html ) find a number that is: 

Greater (>) than 67 

Less (<) than 12 

Greater (>) than 30 but less (<) than 45 

Greater (>) than 18 but less (<) than 22 

Greater (>) than 41 but less (<) than 43 

Greater (>) than 91 but less (<) than 100 

Greater (>) than 38 but less (<) than 40 

Greater (>) than 56 but less (<) than 58 

 

Fill in the blanks using these symbols > < =. (Remember, the alligator eats the biggest number so this helps determine which way your symbol is facing.) 

23__40 

52__62 

15__50 

20__12 

100__10

Wednesday

Watch the video of ‘Dinosaurs and All That Rubbish’ again.

Have a go at telling your grown up everything that you can remember about the story! Then sequence the  story by putting the pictures (see below) in order. If you can’t print them off, simply draw your own pictures for each part of the story (try not to peek at the book too much!). Tomorrow and Friday you will be re-writing the story so you need to make sure that you know it well. 

 

Thursday and Friday

For these two days we would like you to re-write the story of ‘Dinosaurs and all that Rubbish’. Look at the pictures that you sequenced yesterday and use them to help you, you may write your sentences next to or underneath the pictures or write it on a different piece of paper.  

It is important that you take your time with your writing and remember to use: 

*Finger spaces 

*Capital letters 

*Full stops 

 

Use your year 1 and 2 common word mat to help you to correctly spell any key words. You should also remember to use your ‘Fred talk’ to sound new words out.  

 

Parents- of you have come across any tricky words in the book, you may write these down as a word bank for your child to use too.  

We like it when you notice your own mistakes- this is a really important part of learning. If you spot anything that is incorrect or something you could improve, change it with a different colour (if you have one).  

Maths

 

Starter Activity (Daily):

Please start your Maths learning with some quick mental arithmetic. If you have access to a PC/tablet, use Top Marks 'Daily 10' challenge (see link) Please begin working on the level 1 activities.  The timer aspect can be removed to manual to help you get started.

Now have a go at making the number 8 in as many ways possible. You can use your existing knowledge of number, a number square or practical equipment. If you finish this, try doing the number 10 and use your number bonds to help you.

 

Thursday

Have a look at the video below 'Part part whole model video'.

We would like you to have  a go at identifying two numbers that make a bigger number using a part part whole model (there is a template below or you can draw the models yourself). Try doing this with: 

A number below 10. 

A two-digit number below 20. 

A two-digit number below 50. 

Try using practical equipment for this by finding the large number and splitting it into two different parts.
