Children should also aim to read a ‘school book’ using Oxford Owl https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/books/free-ebooks/ for 10-20 minutes a day. Stories are also available on the website for children to listen to https://www.leveringtonprimary.co.uk/stories/ and https://www.booksfortopics.com/storytime-online.

Optional Writing Opportunities

 

For any children who are looking for extra activities or need a bit of inspiration for writing, the videos and activities found at https://www.literacyshed.com/nightzoo.html link with our new Nature Detectives theme and provide lots of exciting writing and art opportunities. 

Daily Maths

 

Use https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ to access video lessons. 

This week we are doing Summer Term - Week 4 (w/c 11th May) to revisit addition and subtraction using 2-digit numbers. Remember to draw lines and dots for the tens and ones or think about using cocktail sticks/straws and peas (or something similar).

Watch the video and listen carefully.

Complete as much of the worksheet (attached below) as you can - you need to try at least the first page but should try the second page wherever you can. Remember - there is no need to print these worksheets. Read the questions on screen and make a note of your answers in your home learning books or discuss with an adult. 

If you are finding the work too tricky, you can try Class 1's work instead. 

If you are looking for additional maths activities, White Rose also provide a Problem of the Day on varying topics. These are available from https://whiterosemaths.com/resources/classroom-resources/problems/ but are optional. 

The super hero times tables that we usually do every Friday are also available on the home learning section of the website. We give children 5 minutes to complete as many questions as possible. Children may want to take their time to firstly answer all of the questions correctly before trying to improve their time. They may also want to try the next super hero in the set. Again - these are optional should you be looking for additional activities. 

 

As well as the White Rose lessons, you could complete 5 minutes of either Numbots or Times Tables Rockstars too.

English Activity - Wednesday 25th March

 

Sunny is still in Australia living with the kangaroos and koalas! 

Can you make him a postcard telling him about what you've been doing at home?

You could take a photograph or draw a picture of where you are for the front of your postcard and write your message on the back.

Don't forget to include: 

  • Who you're writing to;
  • Where you're writing from;
  • Who you're with;
  • What the weather has been like;
  • What activities you've been doing;
  • What food you've been eating;
  • Who it's from.

You could also ask Sunny a question about what he's been doing in Australia. 

Try to use adjectives to describe where you are, what the weather has been like and what food you've been eating. Also try to use conjunctions such as and, but, so, because, if, when to extend your sentences. 

 

Draw a stamp and address the postcard to: 

The Outback Shack

Uluru

Under the hot sun

Australia

 

You can ask adults to help you send a photograph to Miss Gill at the email address at the top of the page!

Maths Activity - Wednesday 25th March

 

In Maths we have been learning about 2D shapes.

We started looking at vertical lines of symmetry where an image is reflected in a mirror line.

 

 

Talk about it/ Think about it ...

Annie has drawn a vertical line on each shape, but which ones show a line of symmetry? Which shapes have an accurate reflection either side of the line?  

 

 

Talk about it/ Think about it ...

True or false: 

 

 

Draw it...

Now, in your pink home learning book, try to draw these shapes with a ruler or straight edge. Draw the vertical mirror line. Can you reflect the shape in the mirror line to make the shapes symmetrical? Can you name the shape underneath once you have finished it by counting the sides and vertices? 

 

 

Extra...

You could try to draw your own symmetrical shapes, patterns or pictures. 

Look around the house and garden: which 2D shapes can you see? Do they have a vertical line of symmetry? Where would the line go? 

Topic Activity - Wednesday 25th March

Task

Use the worksheet above as a starting point to draw or write about the landscapes of Kenya and Africa. 

Use image searches online (with an adult) to find more ideas. 

Try to use as many adjectives as you can to describe the landscape and what you can see in the images above. Use the word bank below to help you. 

 

 

 

All of the images for African Landscapes have been purchased by the school from Plan Bee and will be removed from this website immediately after the school closure period. These are not intended to be copied or used other than for Class 2's home learning activities.
