Hello Year 2,
It was lovely to hear from some of you last week, keeping me up to date with the different activities that you have been completing at home; from earning Blue Peter Badges to keeping up with your Joe Wicks PE sessions. It was also wonderful to see what a great start you have made on our new Chilli Challenges too.
Don't forget to head over to the Chilli Challenge section of our Class page to access these new activities surrounding the topic Kenya in Africa. https://www.cloverlea.org.uk/chilli-challenge/
Please do continue to email me with the progress you are making with your home learning, as I love to hear from you all firstname.lastname@example.org
This week Evie, Alfie and I have enjoyed baking and hosting a bingo zoom call with some of our family in Ireland. It was great fun. What things have you been doing to stay in touch with your family and friends.
Have a wonderful week Year 2 and I hope to hear from you soon
This week for English I have added another Talk for Writing Unit called 'Year 2 Superheroes'. Please work through this unit at your own pace throughout the week.
In addition, you have the option of supplementing this work with the BBC Bitesize website
Wow! Well done Year 2, it looks like you are doing a fantastic job with your reading as I received another badge for our Readerpillar! Keep up the great work. Remember, it doesn't matter what you are reading, whether it is books from home, Epic!, Oxford Owls or another source of books as long as you are reading every day.
This week over on the BBC Bitesize website they are revisiting the theme of shapes, looking at the properties of different 2D and 3D shapes. Please feel free to head over to their website if you feel that these lessons will be beneficial to you.
However, as we have already covered this topic during our home learning sessions, I thought it might be a good idea to have a look at pictograms and collecting data as we only covered this topic briefly in school. BBC Bitesize have some helpful videos and information, which can be found here
Following this, I have added some different activities for you to complete over the week. Please complete these activities over the week at your own pace. Some of the links have more to complete than others, so please consider this when you are working through the different activities. The final sheet is called 'Making a Pictogram', this is an opportunity for you to collect data of you own, perhaps counting the different mini beasts or flowers you can find in your garden or asking your family members about their favourite foods.
Please see below the spellings for you to learn this week. This week we are look at the /ɜ/ sound spelt ‘or’ & the /ɔ/ sound spelt ‘ar’ after ‘w’.
Please remember to practice joining different letters when learning your spellings. Try to write a couple of sentences linked to the different words in your spellings. Remember to make your sentences as interesting as possible including exciting vocabulary.
Please see the two documents above for you to continue with the practice of the common exception words for Year 2.
Please continue to practice your times tables. You may use your Times Tables Rock star login to support you with this, but it is not essential. I have included another couple of daily practice booklets for you to use if you wish.
This week I have included an activity for you to complete, which encourages you to talk about all the positives that have come from this time. It may be a good idea to sit down with your family and talk about all the different things you have been able to do during our time at home. Have you learnt new skills, have you discovered new activities to try, have you been able to spend more time doing the things you enjoy?
In the Brogan household we have spent time together as a family; cooking, making, designing, helping each other and lots of exercise!
I hope you enjoy thinking about these things with your families. Please let me know some of the positives you have thought of
