Phonics

cry

 

 

I have found a fun quiz type activity online (link below) where the Maple children will need to look closely at the words and to think about some of the spelling pattern rules they have been looking at then decide on the correct spelling.

Reading comprehension today.

 

You will be reading ‘Deep Sea Explorers’. (This is in the resources section.)

Please note that there are different ‘chilli’ level question pages (mild, medium and hot). Remember to stretch yourself and write full sentences as answers when the question requires it. We would be doing this in school.

 

Once you have had fun answering the questions then go through the answer page and check your answers and correct where you need to. This ‘review and improve skill’ is an important part of writing. Mistakes are how we learn!

Maths

Warm up

To get your brain ready for maths, can you do some quick coin adding? Get some coins and see how many additions you can do in 5 minutes? Eg 10p + 5p + 2p.

Times Tables, focus on 10s

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zk89d6f

Some children will find the 10s really easy by now, so choose the level of challenge that is right for you! The spicy challenge today looks at numbers greater than 100, as well as missing number problems.

What do you notice?

 

  • You may want to put the questions on to a fun board game template or make your own. There are lots of fun games online too in which you can practise tables.
  • Remember year 2s are expected to know not only how to count in 10s, but also how to recall times tables and division facts. If you want to extend yourself because you are super confident at 10s, why not work on a different times table number today? Or solve some divisions?

 

This afternoon we will be enjoying our 'History' learning about Toys.

 

We are going to find out about toys from the past.

 

Maple children, if you haven't already, we would like you to ask parents/older family members about what toys they had as children? Today, try to find out what material different toys from the past were made from, you could ask your grandparents!

 

Can you research toys from the past using books/internet.

 

 

Write and draw what you find out or use the 'Venn diagram' activity pdf (in resources section) to sort toys used now and toys from the past. What do you notice about the material the toys are made from now compared with older toys?
