Year Two

Friday 9th July 2021

Good Morning Year 2! Your last day of home learning. I am so excited to have you all back in school on Monday. It would be great to see you on Merit worship this morning but here are your tasks for today. A huge shout out to Isobel, Milana, Layla, Anna, Kaleb. Nylah, Sarah, Henry, Mahrahaza and Alice for completing all of your tasks yesterday. Please keep this up today!

Maths

First up is the flashback 4 - this is a great way to remember learning we have covered earlier in the year. Today we are going to move on to non unit fractions. These are fractions where the numerator is not 1. Watch the video here https://vimeo.com/521323710 and then do the activity sheet below.

English

Below you will see three short tasks. These are editing challenges. In the first one find 5 capital letter and full stop mistakes. In the second, five spelling mistakes of those common words we need to know how to spell. Finally, the third one is a bit boring. Can you take my four sentences for the film and improve them. 

Guided Reading

Today is our reading for pleasure day. This is where you choose any book you want to read. You could find a comic or a new book on GetEpic.com 

Our code is arr5646 and just pick year 2 as the name. 

Phonics

Miss Breen’s group – Today you will be learning a new sound, your new sound will be the split digraph ‘u_e’. Work through the PowerPoint and complete the activities, if you click the sound button you will hear my voice talking you through each slide.

Mrs George’s group – Please use this time to practice your spellings on spelling shed and give yourself a mini test. Please let me know how well you all do!

Friendship Breakdowns 

Watch the different clips of relationship breakdowns in these films. Can you make a list of adjectives for how we feel? They might be first emotions or secondary such as anger. How do we react in our actions? Finally, what can we do to repair these breakdowns? Let me know if you any more films where they have a fall out.

Guided Reading

Today you are answering mixed questions based on Chapter 2 of Hodgeheg. You will be using your retrieval, inference, prediction and vocabulary skills. 

Science

Today we are going to look at a different habitat called microhabitats. You will find these habitats all over the world and you will probably find them in your local habitat as well. Microhabitats are home to mini beasts – I would like you to read the information on the PowerPoint and then survey a microhabitat that you have seen. You may find a microhabitat in your garden, we have things such as under a leaf, under a rock, in short grass, inside rotting wood or in or on the soil. 

Your task is to find a microhabitat and draw a picture of the microhabitat you have found as well as write a sentence to describe it. Once you have drawn your habitat then I would like you to survey it by writing a list of what mini beasts and how many mini beasts you have found in that habitat.

Wednesday 7th July 2021 - Virtual Transition Morning

Good morning Year 2 (soon to be Year 3) This morning you will have the chance to meet virtually with Miss McDermott at 9,30 and 11.30am. She will text out the Google Meet link. It will be a chance to ask questions and she will set you a transition morning challenge. Do not worry if you cannot make it, we know Mum's and Dad's are working from home etc. We have planned a transition morning for when you return next week. Plus below I have added her task in the file list. It is to find three things in your house that represent you!

Today we are going to be moving on from our learning about local habitats to learning about world habitats. There are four different world habitats the ocean, the Arctic, tropical rainforest and the desert. I would like you to choose one of these to research. 

I would like you to research what your habitat looks like, the plants and animals that live there as well as what the weather may be like or any other information you find out. Use the worksheet to record your findings. There are many different ways to research, you may use books, the internet and videos to find out different information about your chosen habitat.

 

Another amazing day of work to the home learning account - shout outs to Henry, Sarah, Mahrahaza, Max, Kaleb, Layla, Nylah, Isabelle, Daniel and Alfie.

Geography

This week we are going to be describing and comparing geographical similarities and differences of Bradford, North Pole and India. I would like you to look at the images provided and sort them into the correct part of the table as to whether those relate to Bradford, North Pole or India.

Once you have sorted the images, I would like you to write some comparative sentences all about the different areas. An example of a sentence might be: In Bradford, the weather is very different to the North Pole and India because we have four seasons whereas in the North Pole they only have winter and summer and in India they have 5 seasons which are the same as ours but they have a monsoon season. I would like you to write at least 5 sentences to compare the different areas.

Hello Y2 home learners! How are you all today? Please find all your work for today below. Any problems or finished work should be shared with home learning (homelearning@stfrancisbrad.co.uk) Have a great day!

Maths

Your first job is the flashback 4 - this is a great way to remember learning we have covered earlier in the year. Today we are going to move on to recognising a third. We have already looked at a half and a quarter in school. The main points to be clear about that a third is three equal parts and it is bigger than a quarter but smaller than a half.

Watch the video here https://vimeo.com/521322409  and then do the activity sheet below. 

English

Last week we did the first two plot points of Feast. Today we are going to move on to the third plot point where things begin to change for Winston. Below is the video (just 1 minute) which are writing about today. Then Miss Burgess has added three videos where she talks you through your writing just like in class, following the same structures you are used to but without your friends to share ideas with. You will have your thinking side (a sheet is attached below if you want) and a writing side.

RE

Last week you learnt about Peter and the man who could not walk. Today you are going to continue to think about Peter by learning the story of how Peter escapes from prison. I would like you to read the story as well as watch the video to gain a deeper understanding of the story. Click here to watch the video of ‘Peter Escapes’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzM9aFqkw6s

Once you have read the story and watched the video, I would like you to imagine that you are an artist and someone has asked you to paint just ONE picture of this story. Choose a part of the story to draw/paint and explain why you have chosen this part of the story.
