Good Morning Year 2, please see the activities below we would like you to do today. Remember you can take photos or use your exercise book.

We hope you have fun!

English

LO: I can write for different purposes.

Activity:

Watch Rosie’s new set 3 sound on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

Today we are going to pretend to be Shirley and write a diary entry of her time at the beach so far. A diary entry is always written in the 1st person, which means we need to write “I” when describing what Shirley was doing.
For example, the beginning of my diary entry would include: “Today I went to the beach with my mum and dad. They were being so boring! They said I wasn’t allowed to swim but all they wanted to do was sit and do boring things like read the newspaper and knit. Boring! I left them to it and had a great time on my own instead. I went on this fantastic adventure!”

Try and set the scene of your (Shirley’s) day out at the beach and describe everything that she got up to in the story.

Write this straight into your home learning book. You might like to draw a picture to go with it too!

Maths

LO: I can find a non-unit fraction of a shape

Activity

Yesterday we looked at unit fractions. ¼ is a unit fraction because the numerator is 1.

Remember the Numerator is the number at the top, the denominator shows how many equal parts there are and is below the line.

 2/3 and ¾ are non-unit fractions. What do you notice about the numerators?

Split your page into two and create a table. With these headings:

Sort these fractions into the correct section on table.

Using your paper shapes can you fold, draw the lines on to show the fractions and shade the following:

  • ¾  of a square
  • 2/3 of a rectangle
  • 2/4  of a circle
  • 2/2  of a square
  • ¾ of a rectangle
  • 3/3 of a circle

Looking for more: Looking at your circle that you have shaded 2/4 . What other fraction is equivalent (same as) 2/4?

Resources:

Paper cut into shapes; 2 square, 2 rectangles, 2 circles.

Connected Curriculum (RE)

LO: I can describe how Mother Teresa put her beliefs into action.

Activity:

Last week we thought about giving and how we can be more giving to others in need. Some people have shown their care to others in a very specific way. Today, we would like you to listen to the story of Mother Teresa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzH13X88kbM

This is a story of someone who cared in an exceptional way and was good at helping others to care too. Mother Teresa was a great encourager. It was her beliefs that inspired her to do the things she did. Who has encouraged you today? Who have you encouraged? We would like you to talk to your grown up about these questions and then draw a picture on paper/in your workbook showing someone you have encouraged or has encouraged you and write a couple of sentences to explain this.

Resources:

Workbook and pencil/paper.

Stay safe, best wishes from Mrs Bunce, Miss Collins, Miss Friend and Mrs Smith xxx
