Friday 24th April 2020
Your tasks for today are as follows…
Maths: problem solving
Continue to spend about 10 minutes working on your times tables on TTRS or hit the button in order to keep your fluency with them up.
Have a go at the Friday maths challenge available on the link below (Summer Term Week 1). Remember that some problem solving activities require perseverance! Keep working on the problems, even if you can’t find the answer immediately.
I have another maths challenge for you to keep those fantastic brains of yours working at full capacity! Use the decimal numbers on the right below (0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.8, 1.2, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7) to make each of the circles in the image on the right add up to 3.0. You can only use each of the decimal numbers once.
English: spellings and reading
Continue to work on your spellings as needed.
For your main English task today, I would like you to spend a good portion of time reading a book, either a physical copy or one available to you on Epic! or Oxford Owl. Reading develops your ideas for writing stories, your vocabulary, your spelling and it is amazing for our minds at all times, especially when lots is going on in the news. We read a lot during the day when we are in school and I am so proud to have a class who loves reading like you all do! So, find a comfy spot somewhere (make sure you have sun cream on if you are in the sun today as it is meant to be very hot!), find your book, and lose yourself in it! Try to read for at least an hour today.
Don’t forget, if you have younger siblings, you could continue your reading buddy time with them whilst you can’t read with your usual Year 2 buddy. I’m sure it would be so helpful to your parents if you took the time to help a younger sibling with their reading and it will help you both too.
I’d love to see some photos tweeted of you reading or helping a younger sibling with their reading. Remember that we can only see tweets from accounts that aren’t protected, so make sure your parents are aware of this before tweeting us.
Well-being: spot the fruit challenge
To keep your minds healthy and positive, remember to complete your daily well-being activity where possible. For today’s well-being activity, I have a challenge for you and your families! Can you identify the fruit item in each of the eleven sentences below? I will post the answers on Monday.
Example: Did you see a man go by? The answer is mango!
