Monday

Today we would like you to:

  • Get active! There are so many fun ways to do this. Remember to look in our resources section – you will see some fun clips, including some of our favourite Go Noodle dances. Running around outside, making an obstacle course, dancing, or Joe Wicks workouts are also great fun!
  • Read for at least 20 minutes. Remember there are lots of different reading books online as well as actual books, which are also great! We are adding new books to Bug Club each week. Don’t forget, you can also find books on the Oxford Reading tree website.
  • Practise your spellings.  Remember to LOOK, COVER, WRITE, CHECK to practise your spellings.

 

 

Phonics

This week we would like ALL children in Maple class to take time and look at the phonics.

It is important that you can see the different way that the sounds are written and become familiar with which words fit which pattern.

or

sort

short

horse

sport

fork

snort

 

aw

saw

law

dawn

crawl

paw

yawn

 

Spellings

Remember this is for the majority of the class.

These words have been taken from the year 1 and year 2 list of ‘Common Exception’ words.

 

last

many

mind

money

most

move

Mr

Mrs

old

only

 

If your child is spelling these words correctly then put a couple of these words in a sentence and dictate it. Then check the spelling

For example - She ran a bath for her child after a busy day.

 

English

Jack and the beanstalk story if you would like to read again. https://www.storynory.com/jack-and-the-beanstalk/

We ended last week by describing a setting. Description is something that can turn a rather dull sentence into a much more interesting informative one. A sentence with good detailed description can help build a good picture in the readers head. Description is something we have worked on throughout the year in different forms so this is not new to the Maple class but something we can build upon. Description can be built up with adjectives, adverbs, noun phrases and metaphors just to name some. Look below at how two sentences can be written but how one of the sentences gives so much more detail.

  • Jack walked to the market.
  • Jack walked slowly along the dusty, mud track to the market pulling his old cow behind him.

 

Can you improve these sentences today?

Jack’s mother was cross.

The giant was big and strong.

Jack sat at the table.

He climbed the beanstalk.

He felt scared.

 

 

Monday Maths

Warm up – Odd and even.

Ask someone in your house to call out a number. Jump up if it’s even, curl up in a ball if it’s odd.

Multiplying

Year 2 are aiming to multiply by 2, 5 and 10. Some children are ready to try 3s or 4s too.

We can multiply by counting in steps of the number we are multiplying. We may also use coins to help us if we are multiplying by 2, 5 or 10.

Use counting skills, coins, draw peas on a plate to work out the following:

Mild

Medium

Spicy

2 x 2

5 x 5

3 x 6

4 x 2

7 x 5

4 x 3

3 x 2

Learning Theme

There are lots of different types of plants, but today we’re going to focus on sunflowers for a very special reason! Look on the link below to find out more about the Sunflower campaign.

https://www.norfolk.police.uk/news/latest-news/20-04-2020/sunflower-campaign-supports-frontline-services

What a lovely idea to display real or painted/collage/coloured in sunflowers to show our appreciation of front line and emergency services workers. Have some fun today either using the template below, or drawing/making your own sunflowers. If you want to be more scientific today, maybe draw a labelled diagram of a sunflower. Don’t forget to display it in your window or front garden!
