Monday 31st October

Hi 2W. I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are ready and able to continue with your learning activities. Please continue with your fairytale project and do a Maths activity if you can. Have you tried any of the activities that the specialist teachers have given you yet? Do let me know how you are getting on.

Literacy Learning – Fairytale Project

Keep practising your fairytale so that you get better and better, and so that you can answer the learning question:

• Can I tell a traditional tale orally?

Also try some of the activities I posted on here on Friday.

Mathematics Learning

Have a go at the Maths activities here. You’ll need to print out the sheets first – or you could just copy them out carefully.

Click on the links below the learning question to take you to an activity.

• Can I follow instructions to mark a position on a grid?
• Money grid
• Can I add 10 or a multiple of 10 to any two-digit number?

Remember to write a comment below to let me know how you’re getting on. Hopefully we’ll see each other again soon.

Take care,

Miss Kay

Friday 27th October

Hello, 2W. I hope that you and your families are all ok and that you are managing to find some time to carry out the learning activities that have been posted on the Y2 webpage and on here.

Literacy Learning – Fairytale Project

How are you getting on with your story S for the fairytale that you have chosen? You might want to think about using some story language to help tell the story, such as:

• Once upon a time
• One day
• then, next, after that
• soon, later
• suddenly, all of a sudden

Once you've completed your story S for the fairytale that you have chosen you need to start practising the story using actions and story language. I’m really looking forward to seeing you perform this for us back at school, so keep practising this over the next week. Remember, your learning question is:

• Can I tell a traditional tale orally?

As well as practising telling the story, try some of the activities below. You can choose which ones you like, but you only need to do one each day. Some of them might take longer than a day. It is better that they are done slowly and really well.

• Make a puppet to retell the story. (There are some ideas on Link & Learn for how this may be done.)
• Write a diary entry from one of the characters’ points of view.
• Produce a piece of artwork to show the story setting. This could be a collage, a painting, a drawing or other!
• Write a list of questions that you would like to ask one of the characters. Remember to use a question mark at the end of each question.

I’d like to see these when we come back to school, but it would be fantastic if I could see these before. Perhaps you could email me your diary entry or questions, a photograph of your artwork or a photograph of you and your puppet – maybe even in action performing the story!

Mathematics Learning

Click on the links below the learning question to take you to an activity.

LQ: Can I count in groups of 2, 5 or 10? Word Problem

LQ: Can I add 10 or a multiple of 10 to any two-digit number? Function Machines

Have you tried out the activities set by the specialist teachers yet?

ICT

Mr Mac has set you some great, fun typing activities so that you can get quicker at finding the letters on the keyboard. Click on one of the links below to take you to the website.

Dance Mat Typing

Keyboarding Games

He has also suggested some websites that you might like to use for fun learning games and finding out about things you are interested in:

Kaboose

Kidsknowit.com

Music

Mr Sharp has given you some songs to practise:

Rain rain

Rain rain, go away come again other day

Rain rain, go away come again other day!

He says to practise singing this song with the umbrella sheet (which you can colour in if you wish!). Firstly, sing the song keeping the beat by pointing at each umbrella and then sing it and catch the words. (Counting the rain drops near the umbrellas will help!)

Other songs to practise!

See-saw

See-saw up and down in the air and on the ground

Bounce High

Bounce high, bounce low bounce the ball the Shylow

Lucy Locket

Lucy Locket lost her pocket,

Katy Fisher found it,

Not a penny was there in it, only ribbons ‘round it.

When you sing these songs see if you can show the notes (high/low) in the air with your hand!

Colour in the pictures of the instruments.

PE

Miss Fiona has given you some wonderful PE ideas. Click here to find out what they are.

Most importantly, you need to stay safe at this time and you should not worry if you can not complete the activities. I look forward to seeing you all again soon. Take care.

Miss Kay

Wednesday 26th October

Good morning, 2W. I hope you are all well. As we are not able to be in school I am going to be posting our learning tasks here on our blog. Don’t worry if you can’t always get to a computer or the internet, lots of things can be done without.

Literacy Learning

While at home Y2 children are going to be doing a fairytale proj ect. This will help us when we are back in school and learning about other types of traditional tales. The types of activities will be familiar to you and you should be able to do most of these on your own. For some activities you will need to talk with an adult or maybe an older brother or sister.

Your learning question for the next few days is:

LQ: Can I tell a fairytale orally?

You should be able to answer this learning question when you have completed the activities below:

1. Read some fairytales either on your own or with an adult or an older brother or sister. You can use books from home or you can look at some stories online. Click on one of the links below to take you to some useful websites.

Fairy Tales

Little Red Riding Hood

C Beebies Fairy Tales

2. Talk about the fairytales. Explain which is your favourite and why.

3. Choose one fairytale that you will do your project on.

4. Make a story S for the fairytale you have chosen.

5. Add actions and learn the story so that you can perform it to the class when you return to school.

Mathematics Learning

1. Practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. Count forwards and backwards.

2. Now click on the learning question for an activity where you can practise using your counting skills:

If you have any questions or would like to tell me about your favourite fairytale, please write a comment.
