Week beginning 8th June 2020
Hi Year 2,
Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Each day I will see you on TEAMS for our English and Maths lessons. The resources for these will be found on the Files section on TEAMS as usual.
This week on the website you will find:
Comprehension – This week’s comprehension is focusing on inference questions. Inference questions ask what the meaning of things are. The passages I have included are from some lovely books we have read or will be reading in the Summer Term.
Science – This week’s Science is learning about bulbs and seeds. There is a pdf powerpoint and an activity sheet. I have also attached an adult guidance for those who want to know about the best plants to grow at home quickly.
DT – At the moment it is so important to stay fit and healthy on the outside and on the inside. One of the best things you could do to keep healthy is to have a good diet. This week is the start of a DT unit on Where Our Food Comes From where you will be learning where fruit and vegetables come from.
Have a great week everyone!
We hope you have had a good half term in the sunshine. The following work is set for this week. Live lessons continue on TEAMS at the usual times.
Work set for next week – beginning 18th May 2020
Work for week beginning 11th May 2020
Work for week beginning 4th May 2020
Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend. Well done for last week, our first week of online learning through Microsoft TEAMS. You were absolute stars and have adapted to it really quickly, so proud of you all.
This week we will continue to do English and Maths on TEAMS. We are starting a new story this week, one that I haven’t read to you before so I look forward to reading that to you at the start of the week.
A little reminder when we are saving our work on TEAMS you do the following:
Click on the document – edit – save as (your name) – save to (your folder) then you can write down your work.
This will ensure you all start with a fresh sheet.
Comprehension – 1 per day.
I have found some wonderful comprehension sheets this week all about different animals and their habitats. This relates to our Science topic. The sheets are adapted: 1 star, 2 stars, 3 stars. You should know which comprehension sheet is yours, if not start at 1 star and move through.
This week you are looking at local habitats eg, pond habitats, coastal habitats, urban habitats. You need to read through the PowerPoint information and then complete the activities. The worksheet says to visit a local habitat, and because you are stuck at home I suggest going for a little walk around your home or sit in the garden to complete them.
This week you are looking at what school was like in the Victorian era. I have uploaded a PowerPoint for you to read through and a writing frame where you can write in your own words what school was like for those children.
Maybe you can do some role play at home and pretend you are a teacher in the Victorian era. Would you have the same rules as our school?
I look forward to seeing you all on TEAMS this week!
Love Miss Wenham
Hi Year 2,
I hope you had a lovely Easter and ate lots and lots of chocolate! I bet you’ve been enjoying playing in the garden with this gorgeous sunshine. It’s still a very strange feeling not coming into school, I miss you all and miss hearing all your wonderful stories. Can’t wait to be reunited with you all.
Did you have your own NASA day? Have you discovered a new talent? Have you developed a new hobby? I would love to hear and see what you have been up to! Don’t forget to email Mrs O’Neill with all of your photos so I can see them!
This week is very exciting as we are going to be learning online together. You’ll be able to see and hear me through TEAMS for our English and Maths sessions. We are doing a story this week that I know you all love! It’s been sitting in the book corner all year, I wonder if you can guess what it is? In Maths we will carry on where we left with multiplication using arrays.
Work for week of 20th April 2020
PREVIOUS WORK SET PRIOR TO EASTER HOLIDAYS
We are starting a new topic: Living things and their Habitats. This week you have a powerpoint to read through and then a couple of activities to go with in.
We are starting a new topic as well! The Victorians. This week you will be having a look at some important dates in the Victorian era and ordering them in chronological order.
I imagine you are reading lots at home, I have found some comprehension activities related to the Victorians so I hope you are enjoy those.
Have a great week everyone! I look forward to online lessons and hearing all your wonderful ideas.
Stay safe and take care.
Lots of love and hugs Miss Wenham
Please find activities for you to complete over the next week.
Guidelines for you from Miss Wenham
Reading – 60 second reading guidance
Handwriting – use your handwriting book that was sent home. Each activity could be done for a couple of day to really make sure you’ve cracked the correct joining methods.
Remember to sit properly at your table, straight back, tuck your chair under, sharp pencil and book at a slight angle.
My activity booklet – complete at your own speed.
Maths -Disraeli maths sheets. Children complete the level they are currently working at.
Happy Wednesday Year 2!!
Hope you are all well, staying safe and enjoying your home school experience!
What a strange week and half it’s been! I’d love to know what you’ve been up to and what your new daily schooling looks like! I’ve seen a few of you at school which has been lovely, I know some of you have already moved up in Disraeli Club this week or last and happy to see lots of you are enjoying the Spring weather and enjoying lunch in the garden or helping your parents with the gardening. I am super proud of you all for managing in these strange times!
Remember I was telling you at school that my diary lets me know about themed days, we had National Puppy Day, Do Nothing Day and National Napping Day. Well I want to let you know what is coming up!!
As well as it being Wednesday it is also April Fools’ Day! Can you write a story where the main character plays the funniest trick on their friend?
On Friday 3rd, as well as being my Dad’s birthday, it is National Find a Rainbow Day. This is the perfect day to go for a walk with your family to find rainbows in people’s windows. Don’t forget to take a piece of paper with you as you can use tallies to count how many you see. You could compare this to how many each of your family members found too. Then, when you’re home make a bar chart. Can you ask your family questions about the bar chart for them to answer?
Next Friday, the 10th April, it’s National Sibling Day. This is the day to be super nice to your brothers or sisters. Give them a compliment, get them a drink, write a poem about them, paint them a picture, let them choose the film to watch, share your snack. Whatever it is, let them know how much you love them! If you haven’t got a sibling, could you call a cousin or another family member to let them know you’re thinking of them?
Enjoy the rest of your week, thinking of you all!
Love Miss Wenham xx
Work for week of 30th March 2020
