Friday 22nd May 2020 

Happy Last Day of Term 5! 

Wow the days and weeks are flying by. 

Myself and Miss Cherry are missing you all lots. 

 

English: Please complete the reading comprehension 'Habitats'

Spend the afternoon doing something you enjoy to relax. Once again, myself and Miss Cherry are very proud of you all and your hard work during this challenging period of time. 

 

Please remember to keep practising spellings, especially the Year 2 High Frequency and Common Exception words, as well as your times tables. 

I have attached a downloadable PDF of the Year 2 High Frequency and Common Exception words. I have uploaded an activity booklet to help learn the next 200 High Frequency words, if you wish to use it. 

 

I hope you are keeping up your fantastic reading too. 

 

Have a good day and keep safe, 

Miss Scanlon and Miss Cherry 

Thursday 21st May 2020 

Morning Year 2! 

Nearly another week completed. 

 

For your English today please complete reading comprehension 'Sports' from your KS1 Reading Comprehension Book. 

 

For Maths please complete the 'Time' worksheet from your stapled worksheet packs. 

 

This afternoon it is going to be very sunny again so please enjoy some family time in the sunshine, have fun playing in the garden or spend some time reading one of your favourite books.

I have also attached another White Rose Problem of the Day below. 

 

 

 

Hope you have a lovely day, 

From Miss Scanlon and Miss Cherry 

Wednesday 20th May 

Good Morning Year 2, I hope you enjoyed the lovely weather yesterday! 

Thank you for your lovely birthday messages and photos/cards you made it. It was really lovely and made me smile laugh 

I had a great birthday with lots and lots of cake! 
 

English: Please complete the worksheet “Expanded Noun Phrases” and design your own superhero! 
Remember adjective comma adjective noun 

 

Maths: Please complete the 2 worksheets “Multiplying by 10” and “Dividing by 10”. 

Remember division is the inverse (opposite) of multiplication and you can use your times table knowledge to work out the answers quickly to division. 
For example we know 5 x 10 = 50 so 50 divided by 10 must be 5 because if you start with the biggest number when you are dividing in this case 50 and count in the number it’s asking you to divide by (10) then you will have 5 fingers held up by the time you get to 50. Dividing is the same as sharing in equal groups! 
So 50 divided by 10 is like Miss Scanlon saying “I have 50 pencils and need to put them into groups of 10 how many groups will I have?”.

 

Art: Learn How to Draw Queen Elizabeth I 

 


Hope you have another lovely day in the sunshine! 
From Miss Scanlon and Miss Cherry 

 

Maths Challenge of the Day 

 

It's my birthday! 

My birthday outing is going to pick up the Asda food shopping - but it does contain my birthday cake! 

 

Tuesday 19th May 2020 

 

Hope you are all keeping safe and well! 

The weather is lovely today so please get outside (if you can) and have some fun. 

Take your learning outside or just play and enjoy yourselves. 

 

Art: Draw a plant/flower/bug you can see in your garden or something you enjoy doing in your garden - it could be you in a paddling pool or kicking a ball. 

 

English: Write/draw a diary entry in your diaries about a day you have enjoyed most during Lockdown. 

 

Maths: Practice your times tables in the sunshine! Can you skip at the same time as saying your 2 times tables? Can you count in 5s every time you catch a ball? Can you hop and say your 10 times tables at the same time? 

I have also attached another White Rose problem of the day! 

 

Make the most of the sunshine and enjoy time with your families. 

Hope you are all keeping well and safe. 

 

From Miss Scanlon and Miss Cherry 

 

 

Monday 18th May 

The last day Miss Scanlon is 24! 

 

Challenge: If Miss Scanlon is 25 on 19th May 2020, what year was Miss Scanlon born? 

 

Maths: Please complete Summer Term: Week 1  - Lesson 1 'Finding 3 Quarters' from White Rose 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ 

Remember when finding fractions you can draw sharing circles to help. 

To find 3 quarters which looks like 3 over 4 as a fraction, you would draw 4 circles and count the amount shared in 3 of the circles. 

I have also attached the worksheet underneath to download. 

 

English: 

Please practice a new list of spellings and write sentences using each of the words.

Thursday 14th May 2020

 

Good Morning Year 2!

Each day I am getting more excited as it is getting closer and closer to my birthday. Now only 5 days to go! I’m hoping Mrs Scanlon is going to get me some balloons and a cake. Mrs Jarvis keeps laughing at me because I am convinced that 25 is a big birthday but she has told me I have to wait until I’m 30 for it to be a big birthday! 
 

I am continuously trying to find new ways to keep you excited about your learning from home as I know it can be really challenging to feel like you want to do it.
I have set your English work on purple mash today. The task is to read the first chapter of a book (on purple mash it’s set as a to do) then complete the 3 English tasks based on the first chapter and 1 Art task. 

If you enjoy doing this reading task let me know and I can set you chapter 2 tomorrow - each chapter has slightly different tasks. 
 

For todays maths I would like you to practice your 2s, 5s and 10s times tables and challenge yourself to learn your 3s. You can practice by creating a poster, writing the times table sentences out or playing on times table rockstars! 

This afternoon do something of your choice, some colouring, a board game, watch a film, relax! You have all been working so hard from home and I am very proud of all of you! 
 

Parents, thank you for your continuous support with all of the home learning. This is a very challenging time for everyone so please do not worry if your child does not seem as engaged with their learning. We are approaching 8 weeks without being in the classroom, as an adult my motivation is lacking and I feel frustrated about not being able to have my class in front of me to teach and it feels like mission impossible to have a real impact via the internet - although I promise I am really trying to make it as easy to access, meaningful and fun/engaging as possible! So I can only imagine how boring/confusing this must be for the children. 
The most important thing is that the children are happy and safe! Take the time to play board games, make posters, jigsaws, build, read, create, bake, watch films - all of these things are just as important as classroom learning. These are the things I look forward to the children telling me all about when we get back to school and are the things your children will remember from Lockdown 2020.  
Once again, thank you for all of your continuous support and I hope the work is helping to keep some structure but please do not worry if the children are not as engaged/motivated after 7 weeks this is to be expected and I am very proud of them all for the work they have been producing so far - my favourite part is seeing all of their individual hobbies and creativity. 
 

Hope you are all keeping safe, 

Miss Scanlon and Miss Cherry

Wednesday 13th May 2020

Morning Year 2 

 

English: Please complete the worksheet 'Where do you live?' from the stapled booklet of English worksheets.

Hope you had a lovely 3 day weekend.

 

English: Please write a list of adjectives to describe/compare the weather from Saturday and Sunday. 
Then use these adjectives to write sentences with expanded noun phrases. (Adjective comma adjective noun) 

For example:

It was a beautiful, hot day on Saturday, I went into the lovely, sunny garden to play. 
 

Maths: Please complete pages 17-19 in your KS1 Maths book

 

Topic/Art: Create a Tudor Rose! 
You can draw it, model it, build it, make it, paint it! 
However you want to create a Tudor Rose, it’s up to you! 
The Tudor Rose was created by putting the red rose of Lancaster and the white rose of York together. It joined the two families of Lancaster (The Tudors) and York together when King Henry VII and Elizabeth of York got married so that there would be no future wars between them over the throne of England. 
You could try and use Lego to create a Tudor Rose or cut up different shapes of coloured paper! 
Remember to email me your creations.

 

Have a great day, 

Missing you all. 
Miss Scanlon and Miss Cherry

Art Competition 

Can you use the art tool on purple mash (I have set as a task so that you can submit your entry) to create a picture of your favourite picture book/children’s book. I know Year 6 have done something similar and found it tricky to use and control the mouse to draw their pictures. 
For example: If your favourite book is the Gruffalo you might draw the Gruffalo and the mouse as clues to the title of the book. 
Entries need to be submitted by 5pm today, and then on Monday I will upload them with a number and the rest of the class (Via email to the school office on a downloadable form/just typed up/written down) & teachers will guess the names of the books based on the pictures.

Miss Scanlon and Miss Cherry 

 

Tuesday 28th April 2020

 

English:

From your English stapled worksheet pack please complete 'Be the Author'. You can write on the sheet or choose to cut out and stick the photos in your book to write underneath. 

Remember to use adjectives (describing words), expanding noun phrases (adjective, adjective noun e.g. fluffy, cute cat) and adverbs (words that describe how a verb is being done e.g. quickly, happily, elegantly). 

 

Key Vocabulary 

Adjective = describing word 

Noun = A name of a person, place or thing 

Verb = doing word 

Adverb = describes how the verb is being done 

Expanded noun phrases = 2 adjectives separated with a comma BEFORE a noun 

 

Maths:

From your Maths stapled worksheet pack please complete two worksheets called '2 Times Table - Multiplying' and '2 Times Table - Dividing'

Remember dividing by 2 is the same as halving. You can use your halving knowledge to work out the answers or you can draw TWO sharing circles and share the number you are trying to divide between the two circles EQUALLY. 

 

PSHE/Art: 

Being Grateful and Thankful 

Think about 3 things you are grateful for during Lockdown, 3 things you are missing and 3 things you can't wait to do when Lockdown is finished. 

You can choose to share these however you like. You could make a poster, draw pictures or write about it. 

I'd love to see your creations. 

I will share my poster of my 3 things at 3.30 under 'Miss Scanlon's Adventures'. 

 

Keep safe, 

Miss Scanlon and Miss Cherry 

 

 

Monday 27th April 2020

Good Morning Year 2 

 

English:

Please complete the reading comprehensions 'Amy Johnson' and 'Tim's Diary' from your 'KS1 English Comprehension Targeted Question book' 

 

Maths:

Please complete pages 14, 15, and 16 from your 'Key Stage One Maths Workout' Book on Division. Remember dividing by 2 is the same as halving. 

Remember to think about sharing circles e.g. if you are trying to work out 21 divided by 3 you would draw 3 sharing circles and share 21 dots between the circles and count how many dots are in 1 circle at the end. 

 

Science: Growth and changes in animals 

I have set 2 short tasks on Purple Mash for you to complete about the lifecycle of a butterfly and how animals grow and change throughout their lives. 

 

Thank you for sending me photos of your flags, I loved seeing them! 

Miss Scanlon and Miss Cherry 

 

Friday 24th April 2020

Happy FriYAY Year 2 

 

Maths: 

Please complete the worksheet ‘Subtracting Numbers’ (page 117). 
Remember when we subtract the number is getting SMALLER! 
Challenge: How many different words can you remember that mean the same as ‘subtract’? 
 

English: 

Please complete the worksheet ‘Analysing Text’ (page 82-83)

Remember it is not asking you to be super clever and make it extra hard for yourself by making up your own answers. WRITE EXACTLY WHAT IS WRITTEN IN THE TEXT! If they have used the word big, write big, don’t change it to ‘huge’. 
The answers are always in the text unless they ask what you think, however what you think should still relate to the text. 
FOR EXAMPLE: If the story was about Hansel and Gretel being lost in the woods and it asked you how they felt, you wouldn’t write that they were excited to go on a rollercoaster. 
 

Topic: 

King Henry VIII has challenged you to design a flag for his new boat. 
He wants the flag to show everyone how powerful and strong he is.
Think about the 4 flags of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland to give you some inspiration ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช 
King Henry VIII needs you to write a few sentences to explain to him why your flag represents his power and strength. 
Think wisely about what you draw and tell him because he might chop your head off if he doesn’t like it!!!

Thursday 23rd April 2020

Good Morning Year 2 

 

English: Please complete the Prefix worksheet and then try to write your own sentences using words with the prefix 'un'.

Challenge: How many different words can you think of that can you change the meaning of by using the prefix 'un'? 

 

Maths: Please complete the 'Adding Numbers' (page 113) worksheet. 

Remember 'cm' just means centimetre and does not change how you add - you just need to look at the numbers laugh

 

Art: 

The Tudors loved portraits, especially King Henry VIII. Since they did not have cameras or photographs it was the only way to show people what you looked like without visiting them. King Henry VIII married his fourth wive, Anne of Cleves, based on what her portrait looked like. 

Can you try and draw a portrait of yourself - you could use a memory or a photo to help you! Remember to make it fill the page and you could even draw a fancy frame around it to make it look real! 

 

I can't wait to see your portraits. Thank you for sending in your work and your lovely messages, it really brings a smile to my face. 

Looking forward to seeing you all, 

Miss Scanlon and Miss Cherry 

 

 

Wednesday 22nd April 2020

English: 

Please complete the Suffixes and Suffix Detective worksheets. 
Remember a suffix goes at the END of a word such as ing, ed, er, est, ful, ly, ness. 
 

Maths: 

Please complete the maths worksheet “Adding 2 Digit numbers and tens/Adding two 2 digit numbers”.

Remember to think about whether the ones column changes when you are adding just groups of ten. Use column addition to help you add two 2 digit numbers. Remember a group of 10 can not stay in the ones column and has to move into the tens column AND you always add the ones column first! 
 

ICT: https://www.barefootcomputing.org/homelearning?mc_cid=b8b438bf50&mc_eid=db659cad25

 

The website above has lots of great learning activities and interactive games based on computational skills such as debugging and coding. 

 

Tuesday 21st April 2020

 

English: Please complete the Reading comprehensions “No Teacher” and “The Enchanted Wood” from your KS1 English Comprehension book. 
 

Maths: Please complete pages 11, 12 and 13 on Multiplying (the same as your times tables) from your Key Stage One Maths Workout book. 
Remember even numbers are always in the 2 times table. 

Top Tips
0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 even numbers are really great! 
1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 all the odd numbers are mine!

Just like addition, multiplication can be done/written in any order so 8 x 2 is the same as 2 x 8.

Multiplication is the same as repeated addition so 3 x 2 is the same as 3 lots of 2 which would look like 2 + 2 + 2 as a repeated addition. So even if you don’t know a certain times tables you can work it out by writing it as a repeated addition. For example 4 x 7 is the same as 4 lots of 7 OR 7 lots of 4! So you could work out 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 OR 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4. 

Remember when you multiply/times anything by 1 the answer doesn’t change. 
1 x 3 = 3 

1 x 9 = 9 

1 x 6 = 6 

1 x 200 = 200

 

History:

Our new topic for this term is all about the Tudors and it is called “Off with her Head!”. 
Please create a poster or fact-file all about King Henry VIII. As always I love seeing your work so please email photos to the school office.

Your second task is to retell the Easter Story. You can do this in the form of writing a letter to your friend describing the events after watching the video on Purple Mash or you can just write it as a description using the key words on Purple Mash to help you. 

 

Your third task is maths based. Can you match the repeated addition sentences to the correct multiplication sentences. Remember 4 x 2 is the same as 4 lots of 2, e.g. 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 or 2 lots of 4, e.g. 4 + 4. 

 

Please remember to click complete/finish and submit/hand in ALL of your work today so that I can see it and mark it/reply with a comment! I will also try and share some of your work on the class page. You can also write me a comment in the hand in box when you have finished your work!

English and Maths with a difference today!

I have uploaded a video of me baking flapjacks ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
 

English task: To write a set of instructions using imperative verbs (bossy verbs) 

 

 

Maths task: Measuring and weighing (if you choose to make flapjacks too) or just listening to some of the maths questions in the video which I will also put underneath the videos in case they do not play for you. 
 

Safe to say I was made for teaching and not blogging but hope it makes you all smile... I laughed a lot at myself making it. 

 

If the videos do not work for you, have a look at a recipe for making flapjacks and see if you can rewrite the instructions so that they have imperative verbs. Remember imperative verbs always go at the beginning of a sentence and are telling you what to do e.g. Mix the ingredients. Weigh the sugar. Stir the mixture. Pour the flour into a mixing bowl.

Maths Questions 

 

1) Miss Scanlon has 16 pieces of flapjack. If Mrs Scanlon eats 1 piece, her brother eats 3 pieces and she leaves 5 pieces in school for Miss Cherry, how many pieces would she have left? 

 

2) Miss Scanlon uses 4 spoonfuls of golden syrup in her flapjack mix. Each spoonful is 15ml. How many ml does she use all together? 

Remember ml means millilitres. 

 

3) Miss Scanlon uses 125g of sugar. She needs to use double the amount of oats. How many grams of oats does Miss Scanlon need to weigh out? 

Remember to think about place value (hundreds, tens, ones column) and partitioning to help you double a larger number. 

125 = 1 group of hundreds (100), 2 groups of ten (20) and 5 groups of ones (5).

Good Morning Year 2! 

 

English: 

Please complete the reading comprehensions 'Get Well Soon' and 'A trip to the shop' from the 'KS1 English Comprehension Question Book'. 

I have also set a challenge for you on spag.com 

 

Maths:

Please complete pages 9 and 10 from the 'Key Stage One Maths Workout' book. 

It is important you use your knowledge of place value today... remember if you are taking away/subtracting 50 that is just the same as 5 groups of tens.

E.g. 74 - 50 = ? We know the ones column will stay the same because when you minus zero the number does not change, so we only need to look at the tens column which would be 7 (groups of  10) - 5 (groups of 10)! 

 

Geography:

The United Kingdom

Can you have a go at drawing a map of the United Kingdom with labels and the 4 flags. 

Challenge -> Can you label the capital cities! 

 

Have a good day, 

Miss Scanlon and Miss Cherry

English:

Can you please choose one of the writing frames (any of the photos with the lines underneath) to complete. Remember your capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, adjectives and expanded noun phrases. Take your time with your handwriting too! 

 

*Expanded noun phrases = adjective comma adjective noun e.g. beautiful, young princess 

 

Maths: 

Please complete the sheet from the stapled maths worksheet pack called 'Place Value'.

Remember to think about 'tens' and 'ones'. 

E.g. the number 47 has 4 tens and 7 ones. 

 

This afternoon take some time to write or draw in your diary. You could think about what you have enjoyed the most about being at home and what you have missed from school.  

 

I loved seeing some of your Peru fact files and posters yesterday - they looked great! 

Monday 30th March 

Good Morning Year 2, hope you all had a lovely weekend! 

I have tried something slightly different for today's learning.

Have a great day,

Miss you all lots 

Miss Scanlon and Miss Cherry

Learning at home………

 

Here are some suggestions of activities that we feel would be beneficial for the pupils to undertake:

 

Read! Read! Read! Please ensure that children are both read to heard read frequently. This can be reading anything ie, magazines, comics, newsround, recipes. The more children read (or are read to) the more words they know and the easier they learn. Whilst children reading independently can be beneficial, it is really important that an adult listens to thm read to check errors – this even applies in years 5 and 6. Please take the time to discuss the story/book, explain unknown words and then try and use them later in the week.

 

Practise number bonds (numbers that you add together to make 10, 20, 100, 1000 and any numbers in between!) Cbeebies/Numberblocks episodes are great for this. If you search number bonds online, there will be lots of activities online for this.

 

Counting – Please take every opportunity to count. Not just in ones (twos, fives, tens – any number)! You can do this in fun ways e.g through movement, cooking, tidying away.

 

Times tables – Please ensure children in Year 2 – 6 are practising these frequently. Knowing times tables has a huge impact on what they can do in Maths. Children who know them are generally better mathematicians. There are a range of games online.

 

Playboard games and card games – talk to them about strategy and logic. Any games that promote discussion, counting or other skills.

 

Cooking or any food preparation, particularly measuring and weighing. This is also a good opportunity to promote new words.

 

Drawing and writing – Take the opportunity for children to draw and/or write notes for others. They could write a story or a book for a younger sibling or relation. They could help you with a shopping list and/or write their own recipe.  They could do some research on the internet and make a non-fiction book or presentation on something they are interested in.

 

Reinforce common sequences e.g days of the week, months of the year. Can they tell you which moth/day comes before/after? Do they know when their birthday is? Can you teach them this?

 

Practical skills – tying shoe laces, buttons, cutting, threading, using a knife and fork. All of these things will help with their handwriting skills.

 

If you have a garden, encourage them to be active. Can they help get the garden ready for spring? Can you plant anything?

 

Keep them active with challenges – e.g how many star jumps in a minute, how long can they balance on one foot for, can they plank? Go Noodle is a good source for videos for children to keep active. Cosmic Yoga videos are available on YouTube.

 

Anything that adds to their wider general knowledge: countries of the world, flags, capital cities, rivers, languages, historical events, knowledge of the local area.

 

Can they make a family tree? How was life different for ancestors?

 

If you are watching films – pause them and discuss them. Why are characters doing certain things? Would you do the same?

Just Dance!
