Hello, I hope you have all had a nice weekend!
Here are your activities for this week:
This week we will be learning about fractions for the first time so to help you with this use this website and click on week 1 (we will do week 2 next week so please don’t rush through this!)
You should see:
Lesson 1: Equal parts
Lesson 2 and 3: Half
Lesson 4 and 5: Quarter
Do one lesson every day looking at the video first and then the activity sheet afterwards (use the answer sheet to check and mark your answers).
Handwriting and spelling practise (don't forget to join!):
This week I want you to write a diary every day telling me what you have done - don't forget the date and your beautiful handwriting!
Here is a checklist of what to include and an example to help you:
Read the text and then answer the questions - there are 5 to do in total (one a day).
If your child does phonics then please use this website instead. Ask your child which set sounds they do and there is a new video every day for them to watch and interact with just like we would teach it in school.
Mrs Collier - Set 1
Miss Sharples - Set 2
Mrs Vickers/Mrs Holden - Set 2/3
Miss Ebdon - Set 3
Also, you can pick an e-book to match the sound that they are doing too for them to read at home!
Mrs Collier - Red ditties/Red band
Miss Sharples - Red band/support with green books
Mrs Vickers/Mrs Holden - Orange band / Pink
Miss Ebdon - Blue band / Yellow
Hopefully you have learnt lots about materials already from your learning packs so you are now going to have a go at an experiment!
I want you to make predictions about which material would be the most absorbent and why?
Then find out the answer!
Here is a list of free websites you can use to help with your children! I highly recommend the Joe Wicks and Read Write Inc one :)
A structured time table I found that you can use every day 😀 - the children love the website Go Noodle!
TT Rockstars Challenge Task
Friday 27th March 2020
It's my brother's birthday today so I've decided I'm going to bake some brownies - you know how much I love chocolate
I want you to bake/cook something today with an adult (using anything you have got in your houses). It could even be something as simple as making some toast! When you have done this I want you to write some instructions telling me the steps of what you did.
Don't forget to use adverbs of time for each step: First, Second....
and imperative verbs which are bossy - like me!

I hope you have all been enjoying the sun! I miss you all very much and hope to see you soon!
For today's task I have split it into two groups because some children weren't in when we did this lesson and I want to give them the opportunity to have a go now :)
Group 1) If you weren't in school then you are going to draw a self-portrait of yourself today!
Use this guidance to help:
TIP: Use a mirror to look at yourself.
Group 2) You have already done a self-portrait so your task is to try and draw a portrait of the Queen today! Remember to use the steps above to help.
Good luck and have fun! I can't wait to see them all when you're back in school!

Today you are going on a shape hunt! For every 2D and 3D shape you see in your house and/or garden make a tally chart (see video to remind yourself of a tally chart).
Extra challenge: Can you name all of the shapes?

Good morning Year 2!
I miss you all already!
As promised, I will be setting a task for you to do every day on our website page so keep an eye out!
First task to complete:
Pick 5 words from our Year 2 Spellings and write a sentence using each one (5 sentences in total).
Also, I have sent you all a challenge on TT Rockstars for you to complete in your own time - let’s see who can beat me! 😀
