Good morning Y2. Hope you had a good day of home learning yesterday. Those of you are consistently doing the work from our blogs and recording them in your books, please send your work in. It is lovely to see Tayyibah, Mohammed and Jazmine share their work today.
Thank you Tayyibah for sharing your home learning with us. We are drooling over your oats and fruit smoothie! You have have written the instructions really clearly and love the way you prepared all of your ingredients before hand. I am sure it was delicious! I am definitely going to use your instructions to make a smoothie. Well done on completing the frog life cycle and finding evidence from George's Marvelous Medicine to write the sentences using conjunctions. Great job!
Well done Mohammed for sharing your work on Purplemash. I can see you have enjoyed the measuring activity and used symbols to compare and order them. Well done on completing the reading and Literacy challenges, your frog life cycle looks brilliant. Keep up the fantastic work!
Thank you Jazmine for sending some of your work. You did a brief description of Grandma and did one of the Maths challenges on capacity. I would like you to spend more time reading through the challenges from our blog and try your best and take your time when you are completing a task. I am looking forward to seeing more home learning from you. Good effort Jazmine.
Read this story which is set in New York City. It is a state in America. Find out what Sally is up to on a cloudy day while she is stuck at home.
Today, we are going to hot seat the two characters from the story, George and Grandma . You can pretend to be Grandma or George and get someone to ask you questions. Make sure you are using expression when you are answering the questions.
Can you come up with some more exciting questions to ask? Once you have got the questions ready, ask someone to hot seat you on a chair. Be ready to reply in the voice of either George or Grandma. You can even dress up as Grandma or George to make it fun.
;How did you get on with finding capacity and volume of different jars and containers? Do you understand what it means when we say 'capacity' of something? What about volume?
Today we are going to use standard units for measuring capacity. Last week we used centimetres and metres which was the metric unit for measuring length. If someone asked you to give them 100cm of milk, would you be able to get it? Of course not, because we are not measuring length and we can't measure something like milk using a ruler or measuring tape. It would get really messy!
We use the standard units; millilitres (ml) and litres (l) for measuring capacity. Look at the measuring jug, which is something you can use to measure capacity and volume.
Look at jug carefully, what can you see? Can you see the standard unit millilitres (ml) right at the top? What do you think is the capacity of this jug?
If I fill this jug with water half way, how many millilitres of water will it be holding?
I am sure your parents have fed you medicine like that with a small spoon. How many millilitres of medicine do you think the spoon can hold? Do you think it will be; 100 millilitres, 50 millilitres, 10 millilitres or 5 millilitres?
Today, I want you to create your own healthy plate. Think about why we need different types of food for our body.
Can you figure out the different food groups? Why should we have a balanced diet? What is the harm of eating too much sugar? Use the pictures of the food to draw your own plate. Take your time and label the food you have chosen. You can also write sentences under your healthy plate to explain why you have chosen certain food.
