Year 2 Home Learning - Week 4

Hi All

We hope that you are well and that you are looking after your families well! Here are a few more ideas for you to keep you occupied. You can do as little or as much as you wish-as long as it is something daily! Don't forget to use Purple Mash and Bug Club. There is a spelling lesson followed by a week's worth of writing. Reading task is Bug Club.

Many thanks...miss you all.

Creative writing

There are several scenes that you can chose from for your creative writing. This can be done over the week. For example on Monday you can choose the setting and come up with some good vocabulary to describe it. You could put these into descriptive sentences using adjectives and noun phrases. Tuesday you can think about a couple of characters that might be in your story nad jot down some ideas. Wednesday describe the setting and what might happen in the stoyr. Think of a story opening leading up to a problem that might occur. On Thursday solve the problem and write the story ending. Friday copy it up into neat and illustrate it. Then email it to us!

White Rose Maths lessons

Continue this week to have a look at the lessons on White Rose maths website. Again you dont need to print the sheets out , you can just write the workings out and answers on any paper.  Make it practical as well. have a go at measuring different objects of you choice and then ordering them.
