Merhaba Y2! How are you getting on with the home learning this week? Have you got a timetable to structure your day? Remember there is no book swap today. The new book swap day is Thursday. Please come in from 2pm. Also, we would love to see your home learning that you are doing so please try to send in your work to Joan.
Do you like mini-beasts? They are all around us. What are the new bugs you have learned about? How do they help gardeners?
Your task is to draw a picture of Praying Mantis, Ladybug and a Spined soldier bug and write a fact for each of them.
Watch the animation of the first few pages from George's Marvelous Medicine. Stop the video at 1.07 minutes. Watch it again up to 1.07 minutes. Can you figure out what is happening in the story? Do you recognise the characters?
I want you to have a go at writing 5-6 sentences to summarize what you think has happened up to 1.07 minutes in that animation.
I have done the first few sentences:
There was a quiet village by the side of a hill, where a little boy called George, who lived with his family.
George lived in a house with his parents and Grandma.
One day his mother...
Have a go at this quick measuring activity.
So far we have used rulers to measure small objects like pens, scissors, toys etc. How do you think we could measure things that are taller and bigger; for example: your height or your bed? We can use a ruler but we may have to mark where the ruler ends and measure again and again till we reach the end, which can be really difficult and confusing.
In class you have seen Shay use a stick in Maths which is called a metre stick. Most of you are taller than a metre stick. The rulers we use in our class are 30cm (centimetres). But a metre stick is 100cm (centimetres).
It's easier to use a metre stick when we are measuring something that is longer. Watch this video to help you.
Which is longer a ruler or a metre stick? Of course it's the meter stick which is longer because 100cm is more than 30cm.
Fact: 100cm (centimetres) = 1 m (metre)
How many 30cm rulers do you think we might need to make 1 m (metre)?
30cm +30cm+30cm= 90cm
Does that make a metre?
Remember we need 100cm to make 1 metre. So we need 3 rulers and another 10cm.
90cm + 10cm = 100cm
Can you find things in your house that are longer / shorter than 1 metre?
Today I want you to have at go at joining oo, ou and u from other letters. Watch the video and then practice.
Can you write sentences with the words you have practiced?
The moon is round.
You should read everyday.
