Good morning everyone. How are you feeling this morning? I am looking forward to seeing you today at our book swap. If you need new reading books or home learning books to do your work in then please come along. Hope you will enjoy today's' home learning and complete them by giving your best shot.
I have received more learning from children yesterday. This is wonderful Y2. You are encouraging each other to do your home learning and being role models. Thank you Yahya C, Stela, Tayyibah, Mohammed and Hannah for your lovely pieces of home learning.
Yahya C I am so pleased to see you trying your best in your home learning. Your presentation and handwriting is fantastic. I see that you have worked with mum to complete most of your learning from the blog. You have learnt to measure length and height using standard units and ordered and compared them using symbols. You have drawn great pictures of George and Grandma and, came up with lots of interesting ideas. I do agree with what you said, I think she might be a witch with magical powers. I know Grandma disgusts you with her choice of food but I guess we have to respect her choices haha. Well done on your capacity activities, I like how you experimented finding capacity using pens. Have a go at filling water in different containers and see if you can measure them with a measuring cup if you have one. Great job Yahya!
Tayyibah, you have been working hard at home. I like the healthy plate you have created and identified all the food groups. You have explored some of the negative affects of eating food that are high in sugar. Well done on maths challenges, you can confidently read scales when measuring capacity . Great effort!
Well done Amelia for sharing your Literacy home learning. You found lots of nouns and noun phrases from the book Ginger the Giraffe. I like how you have answered the questions from the hot seating. Some really good ideas Amelia. Keep it up!
Thank you Hannah for sharing some of the home learning you have been doing at home. I assume you have created the hot seating of George using cardboard. Looks fantastic Hannah! Also, I can see that you are doing some activity in maths for time and fractions. I am looking forward to see more home learning from you.
Mohammed, What a fantastic piece of Science learning. I like your healthy plate which has lots of protein and fruit and vegetables. What do you think bread and potato provide for our body? You are really confident in finding capacity of different containers using standard unit ml. Well done Mohammed!
Stela, Alice was really impressed with your maths work yesterday and how you managed to find the capacity of the cylinders some of which had different increments . Well done.
Choose the book 'A village Full of Vegetables' and complete the activities on there.
George's Marvellous Medicine
We have finished reading chapter 1. Can you retell in your own words what has happened so far? Today we are going to start chapter 2, which is called The Marvellous Plan. What do you think this might be?
Read the first page from chapter 2. George really dislikes her, doesn't he? He is thinking of some ideas to teach her a lesson. What could he do? The illustration shows some of the things he is thinking about. Have you got any other funny ideas that George could use. You can have a go at drawing an illustration to show what would happen.
WARNING: Remember this is a fiction book that means it is made up story by Roald Dahl. We can be really creative with these ideas but we certainly do not want to do this to anyone in real life.
Spend few minutes playing this measuring capacity game.
Today we are going to use litres (l) for measuring capacity. We don't have to only use millilitres (ml) because sometimes we may have large containers that would hold lot more water. It will be really difficult and it will take a lot of time to measure how much water it is holding in ml.
We use litres for measuring capacity of something that is bigger than a small spoon or a small bottle or a jug. Just like we used metre stick and measuring tape to measure a wall or a bed instead of using a small ruler.
Fact: 1000 millilitres = 1 litre
5ml 10ml 50ml 100ml 200ml 300ml 500ml 700ml 1000ml
one thousand millilitres is same as one litre
Which of these items would hold more or less than 1 litre?
Look around your house, can you find any liquid items like soft drinks, soap, toothpaste, milk, gel, perfume, washing liquid? Your task is to find anything that has the capacity of more than or less than 1 litre. You can take a picture of you sorting items and send them to us.
I want you to create a mind map of how we can keep ourselves healthy. Does it only mean to eat healthy food? m? Think about exercises, sleep, human hygiene. Think about how we can keep different parts of our body healthy (teeth, eyes, heart, hair). Draw a picture of yourself and around it draw and label the things you could do to keep your body healthy.
