Monday Week beg 13th July
So here we go for the last week of English. Well done for all your hard work at home. We appreciate how hard it has been learning at home.
You have practised so many skills that will help you in year 3.
I have referenced the year 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 ‘Common exception words’ for every day this week. You can decide which spellings to look at. Don’t be afraid to look back over year1 or 2 to double check these important words.
I know you have been working on these throughout your home learning but I have attached the full lists so that you can continue to use them this week and dip in and out of them over the summer holiday too. Some parents have expressed an interest in year 3 work also so I have included the year 3 and 4 spelling list if you wish to look at these too.
Remember when practising your spellings you must look, cover, write and then check.
Common exception words
You can look at 1 and 2 or 3 and 4 common exception words.

One thing teachers really like to see in writing is detail and description. I know I have said this before but it is a skill that requires work and nurturing!
So this week I will put a photo up each day and you can write sentences to describe what you see.
The sentences must include adjectives, adverbs and conjunctions!!
The fierce, black and white cat quickly chased the small, scared vole around leafy, green garden so that it could enjoy the thrill of the catch.
Mild – 2 sentences
Medium - 3 sentences
Hot – 4 or more sentences (huge high five for aiming high!)
Keep practising those mental maths skills. Today work adding different coins – how many sums can you write in 5 minutes?
Measuring in kg
Today we are going to learn about weighing in kg. There are some great resources and lots of information on the BBC page, follow the link:
There is a sheet you can have a go at in our resources section. You don’t need to print it, you could look at the sheet on your screen and write the answers in your book.
Here are some other challenges:
Find something in your kitchen that weighs MORE than 1kg.
Can you find some tins in your food cupboard? How heavy are they? Can you put them in order, lightest to heaviest? Are they heavier or lighter than 1kg? Check on the label!
Do you have weighing scales in your house (not kitchen scales – they’ll be useful tomorrow though. I mean the kind of scales to weigh people). If so, guess how much you weigh then step on the scales and see how close you were!
As we begin our last week of the year it would be a good opportunity to look back at the memories we made and have shared in the Maple class.
We have been at home for a number of months but its important to remember that we had a great time for the 6 months we shared.
What were your memories? What did you enjoy the most? What made you laugh?
What did you enjoy learning?
Use the sheet in resources to print or as a guide for your thoughts and discussion.
In September we will return to school again with all the familiar faces once again and with you now, a little older and ready for year 3.
Let's remember the good times and look forward to making many more.
