Good morning Y2! I hope the weather hasn't dampened your mood. I will be making calls this week to speak to you at some point and Pauline would like to make some calls too. There will be a book swap this Thursday but I won't be in but Pauline will be there to give you books. I will be in next week Thursday for our book swap. I have created another blog on Purplemash. It is titled 'Questions for Shay', if you would like to ask me anything please do so.
This is the start of the chapter where Grandma gets the marvellous medicine. Today, I want you to write the conversation between Grandma and George as he enters the room with the medicine bottle. Remember we are not writing the whole chapter today. We will write little section each day. Your focus today is to use direct speech for Grandma and George using inverted commas. You will stop your writing where George is about feed Grandma her medicine.
Use the verbs to show who is speaking.
Today we will focus on dividing numbers using equal groups. If you have counters or any small objects, you can use them to count in groups.
Design and Technology (food)
I want you to make a healthy snack using fruit. Use the slides below to help you. Remember to write the instructions clearly. Think about how we can be safe by washing our fruit, washing our hands and using sharp equipment with the help of an adult.
Hello and a very good morning to you all. I hope you had a nice weekend. I would like to mention that, I know some of you haven't been able to go to the beach just yet, but hopefully you can when things are better and when your parents, carers feel it is safe for you to do so. Today's reading is all about the word 'no'.
Aseeya had a lovely day out with her family at the beach. The pictures are great Aseeya. I am sure you had a fun day of splashing in the sea and playing in the sand.
Thank you Mohammed for sharing your work. I like your lego fighter jet you have made. Fantastic maths learning yet again where you are using drawings to help you with your answers. You have done the challenges and used your facts for 10 times table to work out tricky multiplication number sentences. Good sentences for dialogues between Grandma and George. Excellent effort Mohammed!
Do you like to hear 'no' when you have asked for something? How do you feel when this happens? Do you think parents, teachers, friends say 'no' to you just because they want to or they may have other reasons for it? Have a read of this story and see what we can understand about the word 'no'.
We have been thinking about the things could happen to Grandma. Today, I want you to use the pictures below to write super sentences for each picture using exciting verbs and adjectives. Use time connectives to show the order.
Verbs: bulged, puffed, swelled, expanded, shot up, tossed, sprang, blew, crashed, ascended, exploded, flew, float, plummeted
Time connectives: first, soon, then, next, meanwhile, before, afterwards, just then, suddenly, several moments later, without warning
As soon as George poured the marvellous mixture into her puckered up mouth her eyes bulged out of her sockets.
This week we will revisit division. Multiplication and division are the opposite operations. When we multiply numbers they get bigger and when we divide the numbers get smaller. Multiplication is repeated addition and division is repeated subtraction. Today we will focus on dividing amounts by sharing.
Look at the diagram below. What do you think this is showing. Can you come up with another diagram that shows 24 divided by 3?
