Dear Children of Class 2,
As you are not going to be in school for a bit, I am going to give you lots of fun tasks to do during the time you are not at school (as promised). These are not compulsory, it is not like homework where you have to do it, it is just a few ideas linked to things we have learnt this term and things you will be learning next term. If you have any problems get a parent to message me on ClassDojo.
Year 2, you do have your CGP books on SPAG, Maths and Reading to be getting on with also.
I have also put lots of bonus things on Purple Mash for you to be getting on with. Your logins are in your home school diaries.
Have fun – any problems or questions let me know.
Task 1: Spellings on PurpleMash (game). I will upload these with the date that they would have been set.
Task 2: Read every day with an adult. You could start your own reading journal where you log each time you read and words that you struggled with.
Task 3: Children are expected to learn all of their Common Exception Words for their year group. Please find below the Year 1 and 2, and the Year 3 and 4 Common Exception words.
Here are some fun ways you could start to learn any of the CEW you find tricky.
• Bingo –make a bingo board game with the words that you are trying to read and play a game of bingo.
• Hide the words around your house and have a scavenger hunt to find them.
• Word hunt – find the word you are learning as many times as you can in leaflets, magazines or newspapers.
• Make a memory pairs game (match two CEW together).
• Blue tack words to a wall, throw a ball at the word and say it.
• How many times can you write the word in 1 minute?
• Mix up the letters in the word. Can you word out which word is which?
• Make the words in playdough or lego if you have it.
Task 4: This is a great website full of interesting videos, pictures and ideas to help you get writing! This is one I think would be particularly good for our class: https://www.literacyshed.com/origins.html There is a video and underneath are some great ideas for comprehension and for your own writing. Obviously these are just ideas and are not compulsory.
Task 5: This is another great website that gives you one picture per day, and underneath that picture there is some great writing opportunities: http://www.pobble365.com/
Task 6 check out this website: https://www.storylineonline.net/library/ This is a great website which has famous people reading you stories! It is free and you just have to click on a book that looks interesting.
Task 1: Y3 https://myminimaths.co.uk/year-3-mini-maths/ This website is tricky to get your head around but it gives you a day by day sheet to work on, plus videos to help you with your learning and problems to solve.
(These can be done by printing off, but if you do not have a printer you can look at them on an ipad and write the answers on paper).
Task 3: Learn your times tables! Year 2: You should already know your 2, 5 and 10s but if you do not then these can be leant by using ‘Hit the button’, or by making fun posters! If you already know these then your 3s and 4s are next on the list!
Year 3: You should know your 2,4,5,8,10,11 times tables already, however why not start learning your 3,6,9 times tables?
Some fun ways to learn x tables below:
Task 1: a fun experiment about the importance of washing your hands https://www.mumstrife.com/food/washing-hands/
Task 2: Our next topic will be ‘The Human Body’ below are some fun ways to start your learning early! Some of them are from American websites so some of the ingredients have odd names, but you can substitute these for things we find in the shops.
