Year 2

Hello,

 

If you are struggling to access Microsoft Teams through your phone or tablet, we have been sent this document which explains how your child can use their xbox or playstation in order to access Teams. I have also attached the document which was sent out in November, explaining how to log on and access the necessary parts of Microsoft Teams.

 

I hope this is helpful.

Good Morning Year 2,

 

It is the end of the week already! It feels like it has gone very fast, but with a lot happening. I hope you enjoy the learning which has been set today. Have a lovely weekend and I will see you at 9:30 Monday morning for our check-in and ready for our new week of online learning, which is going to be very strange to get used to at first.

 

Phonics- Today we will be focusing on the /sh/ sound again, but this time we will look at it when it is written as a ‘ci’. Please watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xis9zXVTjiw&feature=youtu.be to help you with this. There is an activity which can be completed to reinforce the sounds we have looked at this week where you have to add either, ti, ci or si into the words provided.

Literacy- Today, for Literacy, we will be writing the postcard you will have planned yesterday, by using pictures to create the adventure Beegu went on. Before you get on with your writing today, it might be worth using your story map to tell the adventure to an adult, before writing it down, so you have a better idea of what you need to write. I have included two templates which can be used, so if your child is struggling with template 1, have a go at using template 2, where they can complete the sentences which have already been started. I have also included an example which I have written myself.
Remember you are writing as if you are Beegu, so use the words I, me and my!

Maths- In Maths today we will have a go at adding 3 1-digit numbers together. Again, there is a video which explains the concept as well as the activity below, which can be found at https://vimeo.com/470178269 If the video is unable to play for some reason, please find the powerpoint below, which has the same content in it.

Topic- Over the last term, we have looked at and researched all about transport. Therefore, what I would like you to do today, is show me what you have learnt, by creating a spider diagram. I have included a template below, to show you how it could be set out. It could be drawn out or completed on the computer and be as creative and colourful as you like. Enjoy!

Good Morning Year 2,

 

I hope you enjoyed your first day of online learning today and are ready for today’s.

 

Phonics- We will be focusing on the /sh/ sound again, but this time we will look at it when it is written as a ‘si’. Please watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSzpBS6HIMY&feature=youtu.be to help you with this. There is an activity which can be completed to reinforce this sound where you have to write the missing word into the sentences provided. There is a word bank at the bottom of the activity to help you.

Literacy- Over the next couple of days in our Literacy lessons, we are going to write a postcard from Beegu to his parents, based on what he got up to when he was on Earth. Today we are going to plan this. Before we do, it might be worth recapping the story. https://www.slideshare.net/35chandos/beegu After you have read the story, can you create a story map (a set of pictures which are sequenced to create a story) based on some of the adventures of Beegu. I have included my own example below (one drawn as the children should be doing and the electronic copy is what I wanted it to look like). Once the story map has been created, the children could read their adventure to you, using their story map.

Maths- In Maths today we will carry on our work related number bonds, although we will extend this and look at the different fact families each calculation has. There is a video which explain to concept as well as the activity below, which can be found at https://vimeo.com/461736938 If the video is unable to play for some reason, please find the powerpoint below, which has the same content in it.

Science- In Science today we will look into the inventor John McAdam to finish off our topic on materials. We will look at what he invented and how this has changed our lives today. Below is a powerpoint which explains who he was and what he invented. The children can then complete either factfile 1 or factfile 2 based on John McAdam.

Good Morning Year 2,

 

I hope you are all well and ready for our learning today. Please find attached the work for today. Remember if you have any questions about any of the learning set, please email me at year2@stpeter.doncaster.sch.uk and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

 

Phonics- We will be focusing on the /sh/ sound, which is written as a ‘t’. Please look at the powerpoint to see if you can identify the words and write these in the phoneme frames. There is a video link you can use to watch a video related to this sound at the end of the powerpoint. Below the powerpoint there is an activity which can be completed to reinforce this sound where you have to write the word which matches to the picture. There is a word bank at the bottom of the activity to help you.

Literacy- Re-read the book of Beegu, using https://www.slideshare.net/35chandos/beegu Afterwards think about these questions; What happens? Where does Beegu go? What does she try and talk to? Who does she think is calling her? What does she want? Why? Who did she make friends with? What happened at the end? Afterwards have a go at the activity below, where there are different questions to answer based on the text. If your child is finding comprehension 1 too challenging, have a go at comprehension 2.

Maths- For Maths this week, we will recap some previously taught learning, related to addition and subtraction. Today’s activity relates to knowing your number bonds. There is a video which explain to concept as well as the activity below, which can be found at https://vimeo.com/462380184 If the video is unable to play for some reason, please find the powerpoint below, which has the same content in it.

RE- Our new RE topic is based on books. On Monday we started looking at the Bible in more detail and the different parts of it. I have included a powerpoint which consolidates the children’s learning on this. At the end of the powerpoint there is an activity the children can complete related to creating their own set of rules, based on the ten commandments.

Good Afternoon Year 2.

I hope you are all well. In relation to our learning this week, work will be put on here by first thing tomorrow morning, similar to how it worked last March. This will be for this week only! From Monday 11th January work will be assigned via Microsoft Teams. You have all been given an Office 365 account and you will find your username and password at the back of your child's reading record book. From this you will be able to access Microsoft Teams. I will also send out a timetable, giving you an idea of the upcoming work. Towards the end of this week, I will create a meeting for the class, so we can practise meeting virtually, as this is something we will be doing daily from next week. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact me via our class email year2@stpeter.doncaster.sch.uk and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as I can.

Keep safe!

 

 

Welcome to Year 2 2020/21

  • PE will take place on a Friday (I know I have had to change this already due to timetabling, sorry). At the moment we will only be doing outdoor PE, due to current circumstances. Please make sure your children have their PE kit on this day.
  • Spellings will be given on a Friday and will be tested on the following Friday (Spellings sheets do not need to be brought back to school).
  • A home learning menu will be given to children for this half-term. Children can complete the work at home, but please do not fetch it to school at the moment, due to current circumstances.
  • Reading books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday and we recommend children reading and changing them once a week.
  • Ongoing maths homework throughout the year will be to learn their 2, 5 and 10 times table as this is the expectation by the end of year 2. We will also test these regularly in classes throughout the year.

 

 

Thank you for your cooperation.
