Good morning Year 2. I hope you all have a lovely weekend and are ready to start week 11 of home learning.Thank you for uploading your amazing Plop stories. I was so impressed with your writing. You should have received an individual comment about your writing. If you haven't yet uploaded, it's not too late.

 

 

If you have any questions, I will answer them after 3.30. Have a lovely week.

Mrs Morrison

Week beginning 29th June

 

Monday 29th June 2020

 

Time to think: Do something that makes you happy today.

 

Literacy

Please practise list 32 spellings today. I have attached 2 different worksheets for each stage similar to the ones we used to put in your yellow spelling book. These are below and also in Google Classroom.

 

Read your book for 20 minutes. Ask a grown up to think of 3 questions and write down the answers using words from the text to support your answer.

Example

The Robot and the Bluebird by David Lucas.

There once was a Robot with a broken heart.

They did their best to fix him, but it wasn’t any good.

So he was sent to sit on the scrapheap, with all the other old machines. He tried talking to them – he said, “My heart was broken, you know,” but they didn’t answer.

So he lay down and looked up at the sky. He lay there through the long, dark nights and the empty days.

 

1. How do you think the Robot feels?

I think he feels sad because it says his heart was broken

 

2. Did the other Robots talk to him?

No because it says when he tried talking to them they didn’t answer.

 

Maths

Topic

We are going to start finding out about the rainforest over the next few weeks and will be comparing Daintree Rainforest in Australia with Manchester. To start this, I would like you to find out where in the world rainforests are. I have attached a map of the world below. On the map there are sections showing you where rainforests are on different continents. If you can't print it, please write the names of the countries down after finding them. Use an atlas, world map or Google Maps / Earth to find out the name of the country where they are located. Can you find out the name of any of these rainforests?

The Lonely Beast (I have attached the questions as a paper copy too)

Friday 3rd July 

 

Time to think: Think of something you are looking forward to.

 

Literacy - 

This week some of you will have chosen to read The Lonely Beast as your reading comprehension task. You may have noticed it is written by Chris Judge the same author who wrote The Great Explorer. When I was reading it, I noticed lots of similarities between The Great Explorer and The Lonely Beast. I wonder if you did too. Your task today is to think about the similarities and differences between the two books. Think about both the words and the pictures.

 

If you didn’t read it yesterday, here is the link to the story The Lonely Beast. Click here

Here is a link to the Great Explorer to remind you of the story. Click here.

 

Please complete the activity below and also in Google Classroom.

 

Maths: As it is Friday, please ask a grown up to test you on your number bonds or times tables. I have attached the resources once again for you to use. Please let me know if your child needs moving up on TTRS.
