Maths

You will need the + and – calculation sheet from the website and a pencil today.  Don’t worry if you can’t print the sheet, you can copy one calculation at a time and answer it just as you would from the white board at school.

Answer as many of these calculations as you can.  Remember to think carefully about the different strategies that we have been using in school.  Counting on/back from the largest number, counting in steps of 10, using partition and recombine.  Please refer to the maths calculation strategy handout that was shared with all parents/carers at the start of the year. For the adding and subtracting of two 2-digit numbers you can also make use of the supporting videos located in the remote learning tab for year two under maths support.

For Thursdays maths lesson you will need to collect your mini-assessment booklet from school.  You could build this into your daily walk one day this week. They will be in the year 2 box by the front door.

English:

You will need the letter writing sheet and a pencil. You may also choose to use colouring pencils.

Watch the videos of Miss Green reading ‘The Snail and the Whale’. You will be writing a letter from the perspective of the snail. This means that you will have to use your imagination to pretend that you are on the whale’s tail and describe to the reader what you can see.

You will start by choosing three scenes or places from the story. You will draw these in detail in the three boxes at the top of the page. You will use these pictures to help to describe what you can see.

You must then choose who you will be writing your letter to. It may be a friend or someone in your family or in school.

Finally, you will write your letter. We will be looking to see:

• Exciting nouns, verbs and adjectives
• Time words, such as first, next, then, finally

You will need the ‘Alternative spelling- ai’ sheet and a pencil.

With an adult, work through these alternative spellings for the sound ‘ai’ and then fill in the gaps on the sheet.

Then choose at least 5 of the words to write in sentences.

Read independently for 20 minutes. This can either be a school book or a chosen book from home. When you have finished, share with an adult what you have read.

Topic- PSHE:

You will need the Goal setting sheet and a pencil/colouring pencils.

Our value this half term is Self-belief. You are going to work with an adult to decide on your ‘Big goal’. This may be something that you have found difficult and want to improve at or it may be something that you want to achieve.

An example of a ‘Big goal’ might be: I want to learn how to spell all of the Year 2 key words.

Another example may be: I want to learn how to complete the whole of the maths calculation strategies sheet.

Work through the worksheet. Set goals and deadlines for when you want to achieve your goal.
