IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR NEXT WEEK! 

You will have already received a letter from Miss Healey detailing the return to school arrangements for next week. We just wanted to remind you of a few extra things specific to Year 2.

*Please can your child  bring with them their blue home learning work books (or paper) that they’ve been using for their learning at home over the last eight weeks, so that we can collect them all in.

*It’s really important that the children bring a full water bottle (*water ONLY) with them every morning as our water fountains are obviously not in use at the moment.

* Please can you make sure that your child has their reading book and reading journal with them next week.

* Just a reminder that children need to wear full school uniform, including school shoes, not trainers. The classroom can become quite chilly though (due to needing to keep windows open for ventilation) so if you want to send them with an extra hoody/jumper in case they’re cold, that is absolutely fine.

* Our P.E sessions will be back to Thursdays and Fridays. Both sessions will be outside, so an outdoor kit and trainers is essential. If the children bring their kit in on Thursday, wear it on Thursday, then leave it in school on Thursday evening, then we know we have got it in school ready for Friday’s lesson. The children will then bring their kit home on Friday. 

* Finally, don’t forget that we are celebrating World Book Day on Friday  12th March– the children can come to school dressed as a book character for the day. 

We can’t wait to have the whole class back with us on Monday! 🎉 To celebrate, the Infant staff have made a special World Book Day video for you – we thought we’d read you a nice story… see if you can guess who each of the 9 masked readers are before the big reveal at the end?! Click on the link sent via Tapestry to reveal all!!! 😀😀😀😀

We are ready and waiting!! – CAE Moreton Hall

In today’s lesson we are going to continue coding on Espresso. We completed the first lesson of coding last term, which was Little Red Riding Hood. Today we are completing 2 lessons, ‘Key to the race’ and ‘Up in the air’. Don’t forget Espresso have redesigned their coding, so things look different. 

Please click on the link below. The login details: your username and password were sent securely via ParentMail w/c 04/01/21.

Click on Level 2, then click on ‘Different sorts of inputs’, click on the second lesson which is ‘Key to the race’. As things are different, please watch the short video that appears straight away. It explains what you have to do. You will be coding to make the animals hide and show. You will then get the animals to race. There are 6 stages within ‘Key to the race’. When you complete the first one and press Run (the green button which is now at the bottom of the screen), you are ready to move onto the second page of 6. Just click the arrow at the top where is says 1/6, then you’ll move onto 2/6 and so on.

Once you have completed ‘Key to race’, then please complete ‘Up in the air’ in the same way. Watch the video first. You will be turning the aeroplanes. There are 5 stages in ‘Up in the air’.

If you didn’t manage to have a go at the coding lesson last time (28th Jan), please start from Little Red Riding Hood, as the coding progresses in stages and it will be easier to follow and understand.

Let us know how you get on!

Today we are going to play some games to practise dividing by two.

The first one is called Mental Maths Train. Click on the link below. Click on the picture of the train and select the ÷ 2 button. In this game the division is presented in different ways e.g ‘What is 20 shared by 2?’ or ‘What is 12 divided by 2?’ or ‘Share 8 by 2.’ It is OK at these early stages for you to use your fingers to do for example 10 ÷ 2, by counting in 2’s until you get to 10 and see that it took 5 fingers, which is therefore the answer. Again as I have said before, the more divide by 2 calculations that you do, the more you will learn by heart.

I am looking forward to seeing your designs!

 

Tuesday 9th  February

English/Geography

WALT: design a form of transport for Coll

Today I would like you to think about designing a form of transport that would be suitable for life on Coll. Remember, there are no trains or big aeroplanes on Coll. There are no motorways or busy roads. Ideas could include a new tractor for a sheep farmer or a new fishing boat for the fisherfolk of Coll. You might even think about a new beach buggy for the tourists to explore Coll. Draw a picture of it and label all of the different parts and functions.

Phonics/Spelling

Please practise your spellings for the Grand Spelling Test.

Maths

WALT: draw pictograms where one symbol represents two, five or ten objects.

Today we are continuing our work on pictograms, but today we are moving on to where one symbol might represent 2, 5 or 10 objects, so you need to use your brilliant counting skills today!! Watch the video and complete the activity.

There are mastery sheets too if you are up for a challenge. Ask your grown up which one is suitable. There are three to choose from.

WALT: to weave using paper strips

Fabrics, including tartan are made by the process of weaving. Today we are going to learn to weave using paper strips. You will need to create yourself a loom first out of a piece of paper or cardboard. (This is called your warp.) Then you will need to cut out lots of strips to weave in and out (These are your weft.) There are some instructions below and a video if needed. Any paper or thin card, even newspaper or magazines or wallpaper could be used!

 

Image result for paper weaving

Top tip– make the weft strips longer than the width of the loom. This will make it easier for your weft pieces to be moved over and under the warp.

Enjoy making your paper weaving mat!!

WALT: write a postcard Image result for postcard Coll

Today you are going to imagine that you are on holiday on the Isle of Coll and that you are writing a postcard to Miss Healey. Tell her what you have seen on your holiday and what you have been doing. Things to think about could be: visiting the beaches, going on a boat trip, climbing the hills, visiting the bird sanctuary and spending the day on a farm. Don’t forget to describe some of the animals too!!! You can use the template below or use a piece of A4 paper.

Miss Greenwood has done an example of a postcard for you to read first, to hopefully inspire you with some ideas!!! She has also included some time openers that you may use. Don’t forget to use capital letters and full stops all the way through. 

Please bear in mind that tomorrow we would like the children to design the front of the postcard, so if you can do it on a separate piece of paper rather than in your blue book, the two pieces can be stuck together back to back to make a ‘real’ postcard!!!

Block Diagrams Activity Sheet

Art/ ICT

Please continue your weaving from yesterday. If you have the chance you might like to use Purple Mash to create a tartan style jumper. Log in to the Purple Mash website using the link below. The Username and Password were sent via Parentmail at the beginning of lockdown.

https://www.purplemash.com/#app/pap/clothes/jumper

Use the different colours and widths (change the width of your paintbrush using the triangle in the bottom left of the screen), to create your very own tartan. Start with thicker lines, then add thinner lines over the top or in between. You will notice the paintbrush appears as dots in a row. Keep drawing in a straight line horizontally to create lines across with equal distance, or draw vertically to join the dots up to create a straight line. Have fun! Take a screenshot/photo and send it on Tapestry. Here is an example that Mrs Kulczycki created for us:-

 

Friday 12th  February

Maths/ICT

WALT: create a block diagram of our own using ICT skills.

 You are going to create your own block diagram using the computer. Collect information from around your home. You might want to collect information about equipment in your pencil case, fruit in the fruit bowl, vehicles passing your house etc. 

I would like you to log on to the Purple Mash website using the link below. The Username and Password were sent via Parentmail at the beginning of lockdown. When you click on the link, a blank block diagram should appear (It may initially show a vertical bar chart. Please change to the block graph which is the icon at the top which looks like boxes on top of each other). I would like you to enter each object e,g If you are doing items in a pencil case, type in pen, felt pen, rubber etc into the chart on the left hand side of the screen, along with how many of those objects there are. As you do so, watch what happens to the blocks on the diagram. Each time you type in , the blocks start to build up!!! Don’t forget to give your block diagram a title by clicking on ‘title’ at the top of the page.

https://www.purplemash.com/#app/tools/2graph

Spend a few minutes talking about your block diagram with a grown up. Can you speak sentences using ‘more than’, ‘less than’, ‘the difference between’, the total of’…….

Here is an example we have created for you:-

Please take a screenshot/photo of your graph and send it on Tapestry or via e-mail.

Geography

Yesterday you wrote your postcards from the Isle of Coll. Today I would like you to design the front of the postcard. If you used the template from yesterday, or an A4 piece of paper, when you have finished your design cover today, you could stick it back to back with your writing and make a ‘proper’ postcard!!!

Try and make your design as colourful and bold as possible and include plenty of pictures!!

WALT: make tally charts   

Session 3: Handling data: 2 Tally charts, frequency tables and data collection sheets - OpenLearn - Open University - FSM_2

This week in maths we are moving on to looking at ways of representing information in charts, pictograms and block graphs. Today we will look at how to make tally charts. We did a little bit of this when we did our traffic survey in Shaw. Watch the video below. During the video the teacher will ask you to draw various tally charts. These can be done in your blue book or on a sheet of separate paper if you wish. At the end, the teacher asks you to make a tally chart of favourite fruit, but as there won’t be many people at home to ask, you might want to collect your own information e.g colours of lego bricks in a pot, different objects in a pencil case, colours of shoes in the shoe cupboard etc!!!

Geography

WALT: understand the difference between human and physical featuresPicture sorting activity to teach about physical vs. human-made features | Geography activities, Grade pictures, 3rd grade social studies

Last week you named some of the features on the Isle of Coll. Today I would like you first of all to watch a video showing the difference between human and physical features.

https://open.online.clickview.co.uk/libraries/categories/26204537/videos/7313653/physical-and-human-features

Then I would like you to look at the photographs of some of the features of Coll shown below and decide if they are physical or human. Draw or label the features in a chart of your own or use mine below if you wish. If you have access to a printer, you might want to cut the pictures out and stick them in the correct place on the chart.

PSHE- WorrySilly Billy: Amazon.co.uk: Browne, Anthony, Browne, Anthony: 8601404237713: Books

I know that we are living in very worrying times at the moment and you are all coping so brilliantly. Just spend 5 minutes talking to a grown up about things that are worrying you at the minute. Jot them down on a piece of paper if it helps. Then watch this Anthony Browne story about a little boy called Billy who worries about EVERYTHING!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHiW5ndFNQQ

Parents please note. The worry dolls talked about in this story come from the Central American country of Guatemala. They are made from tiny pieces of wood and scraps of cloth and thread. Long ago the children of Guatemala made these dolls and when they went to bed at night they would tell a worry to each one before placing them under their pillows and going to sleep.. To this day children in Guatemala trust their dolls to take away their fears as they sleep and this custom has now spread around the world.

I would then like you to make your own version of a worry doll to keep with you when you are feeling particularly worried about something. There are some ideas below, but please feel free to use your imagination and anything you can find at home is fine (peg, paper, twigs, old pencil, pipecleaners, lollipop sticks!! etc)

There is a free game connected to our Year 2 spelling patterns  When you open the link, you need to scroll down the page until you see the selection of colourful games. Choose whichever game has the ‘free’ red star badge across it. The game changes every few days so I cannot tell you in advance what it is going to be!!!

When the game loads click on the blue ‘PRACTICE‘ icon. There will be spelling questions to complete. Each time you get a question correct, it will let you play a little more of the game. Please note, not all of these words are the same as the ones in our test, but they all follow the same pattern as your spellings.

WALT: draw pictograms

Pictograms Block graphs Tally Chart Tables Bar Charts Presentations Worksheets | Math lesson plans elementary, Tally chart, Math lesson plans

Today you will be introduced to pictograms. Listen carefully to the video. There is no activity sheet to have alongside you today.

Parents, please note; at around 6:18 minutes in the video, the children will be asked to go on a walk to collect information about animals. If it is not convenient to do this, then feel free to collect information from around the house again, like on Monday. The important learning today is that the pictogram needs a key and symbols to represent the objects.

Also, from 6:22 minutes, the teacher talks about using pictures instead of symbols and he starts talking about ‘Who eats the most bananas?’ You do not need to draw another pictogram, but just emphasise the point that on a pictogram, symbols might be replaced with pictures.

PSHE -Express Yourself :Wonderful me!!Home — Wonderful Me

Now, Mrs K and I know how just wonderful you all are!! 💜💙💚But we would like you to think about how wonderful you are too!!! We are going to have a really positive lesson thinking about your amazing qualities that make you so very, very special. Watch this short video about Henry and Leslie.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2RlHM8xfmM

Then I would like you to complete one of the following activities. You could either make yourself a ‘Positivity Jar’…….using an empty jar or small box or container. You could decorate it if you can! Then fill your jar with little pieces of paper. On each strip of paper write something positive about yourself e.g I am funny, I am a good friend, I am a great dancer…..

WALT: name the countries of the United Kingdom and locate the Isle of Coll.

Today we are starting a new Geography unit of work all about a small Scottish island called the Isle of Coll. This is the island that the Katie Morag series of books by Mairi Hedderwick is based on. The stories have been made into a series of children’s programmes now showing on the BBC iPlayer.

To start with we will locate the Isle of Coll. First of all let’s have a look at a map of the United Kingdom. You will be familiar with this from Year 1. Use the display map below to locate the countries of the United Kingdom, then use the blank map below to label the countries. Finally use the close up display map of Scotland to locate the Isle of Coll and label Coll on your map too!

WALT: learn the facts for the 2 times table

Today we are going to consolidate the work we did yesterday and begin to learn the two times table by heart. Remember, lots of practice will be needed over the next few weeks! Parents note, this will take time and if your child needs to work them out by counting in twos, that is absolutely fine. Also, draw your child’s attention to the fact that our doubling skills from last week can help us with our answers to the two times table!!!

Listen to the 2 times table

WALT: describe what we can see on the Isle of Coll

Today I would like you to watch a short video made by a holiday visitor to the Isle of Coll. Think about all of the things you can see on the island and how it is so very different to our local area.

You only need to watch up to 5:06 minutes as then the visitor moves on to the neighbouring island of Tiree.

After you have watched the video make a brainstorm of as many things as you can remember. Write the words ‘The Isle of Coll’ in the middle of your page and surround it with pictures and words of all that you saw.

WALT: plan our own dragon story 10 Mythical Dragon Entities You Should Know About

Today we are going to plan a dragon story of our own. Think about the dragon stories we have heard this week. They have included castles, villages, mountains. lakes, princes, princesses, kings, castles and even caves!! Of course they have all included DRAGONS!!!!! Use the headings on the grid to help you plan your story or write the headings into your blue book. In the first top box draw your dragon, in the second top box think about the characters who are going to be in your story and use expanded noun phrases to describe them, in the third box think about where your story is going to take place-what you might see in this imaginary, magical land. Again use expanded noun phrases to describe what you can see. The three bottom boxes are for three pictures to show what happens in the beginning, the middle and the end of your story. If you want to draw more pictures to help you that is absolutely fine. I have included below my example to show you how to fill in the  top three boxes and then a blank example for you to use if you wish or you could plan it straight into your blue book.

REMINDERS AND GENERAL INFORMATION

Reading and Spellings

11.1.21 Year 2 Common Exception Words

Home Learning Zone - Whitehouse Primary School

As you know, in every year group, there are a list of words that the children are expected to be able to read and spell by the end of the year. The children will recognize these as they are displayed on the door of the Year 2 classroom!!! As part of your child’s weekly reading schedule please could you help them to learn to read these words. We are just concentrating on the READING of them first. Below there are a couple of examples of lists of these words for your reference to use in whichever way you would like.
