Today we are going to plan our own story. By now, you should know the Lost and Found story really well! Perform the text map again, just to refresh it in your head. Now open the boxed up plan document. BOXED UP PLAN. In each box, you are going to write your own ideas. You could just make one or two changes to the Lost and Found story, or you could change it completely. Try to keep to the lost and found idea, where the main character meets someone who they think is lost, they try to find their home, then realise they were not lost after all! I have filled in a boxed-up plan for you to have a look at. You can even ‘magpie’ my ideas if you like! COMPLETED BOXED PLAN.
Here are the new spellings for this week. List 1. List 2. List 3. There are 3 different lists, choose the one that you think you need. If you didn’t do a spelling test on Friday, ask your grown up to test you on last week’s spellings. If you can’t remember what they were, here they are. List 1. List 2. List 3.

Remember to do 20 minutes reading. Try 'High on a Hill' or 'Wild Weather' on Oxford Owl, I really enjoyed them! High on a Hill is a rhyming story. Read it a few times until you can read it as fluently as if you were speaking. Wild Weather has some great facts about extreme weather. It also has some fantastic words that resemble the thing they are describing, such as SWOOSH! Can you find out what these words are called?

Have a super day everyone!  

Year 2 love story time!

In English today, we are having a go at using conjunctions in sentences. Click HERE to have a look at today's activity. If you have time, perform the text map again. Don't forget to do the actions! 

Topic

Last week we sorted pictures of toys into toys from the past and toys and toys from the present day. We discussed how they were made, what they were made from and which we preferred! Today, have a go at doing a time line of your life. Start from the day you were born up to today. Draw yourself, thinking about how you have changed and what you can do now that you couldn't do at each stage before. Next to the pictures, draw something you played with when you were each age. Do you still have any toys now that you had when you were a baby?

Don't forget to spend some time outside in the fresh air and don't work too hard! It doesn't matter if you don't get everything done, but do try to do 20 minutes of reading everyday and keep practising those times tables! Have a wonderful day.  

Wednesday 25th March

Today in English I would like you to start by using the text map to retell the story. Add in actions! If you can't remember all of it, use the story to help you. Story 

 

Next, we are going to have a go at starting sentences in different ways. You can start your sentences using the ‘ly’ words we talked about yesterday, such as: HAPPILY, SADLY, QUICKLY, SUDDENLY, STRANGELY. Or you could use a time connective, such as: ONE DAY, ONE NIGHT, ONE MORNING. You could add in EARLY or LATE: EARLY ONE MORNING, LATE ONE NIGHT.
You can also use place starters, for example: IN A DISTANT LAND, FAR, FAR AWAY, ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN.
Open the word document for today’s activity and have a go at choosing new starters for each sentence. Sentence Starters activity
When you have finished, have a go at writing your own ending for the story.

PURPLE MASH

We have also set 2 new 2dos on Purple Mash. Take a look if you have time - they don't have to be done today and the multiplication one can be done lots of times. Try to beat your own score! Remember - multiplication can be done in any order SO 5 x 6 = the same as 6 x 5 Good luck! 

Tuesday 24th March 

How did the PE with Joe Wicks go yesterday? Did you try it? Give it a go today.

 Here are today's activities. You don't need to go back and try to catch up with previous days. Just start each day afresh.

English is reading.  

We are looking at inference. Inference is using what you know to make a guess about what you don't know or “reading between the lines”. We need it when we are reading.  

Let’s practise today using a photo and/or a short text. You can find them here Photo  Text 

Remember, do as much or as little as you want. Continue the other activities and have fun learning. You don’t need to print all the pages off. Read them on your tablet, phone or computer and then put the date and answer them on a piece of paper or in an exercise book. If you do this, you don’t need to start a new page for each day, just write the next date underneath.

Here’s the link to the Jupiter Class Home Learning page so you can copy it and get straight to the page on your phone, tablet or computer.

Children (and parents please tell your child) - Don't worry if you find the work tricky, remember, you can leave that question, or all of them! Have a go and once we are back in school we'll have another look together. 

Keep reading, your own books or online at https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk

Keep writing. Maybe keep a diary, things you could include are: what you do; what you eat; how your garden is changing or funny things that happen.

For maths, keep counting, spotting shapes, measuring, counting coins, maybe make a pictogram to show the weather at the start of every day.
