Good morning Year 2,
Welcome to Week 8 of Home Learning, (our final week). We hope that you have had a wonderful weekend and that you are ready to get going with your learning this week.
We can't wait to see you back at school next week.
Here is an outline of the learning for this week:
Maths: Our Online lessons will focus on money this week, adding amounts and using a variety of coins. We will also solve money problems.
Additional Support: On the Home Learning page there is a new section named Maths Revision. Here you will find videos and activities to support your child recapping key skills from their Autumn Term learning. The sheets to accompany the videos do not need to be printed, your child can complete their work in their exercise book.
This week’s revision focus is number and place value. You can find additional activities that have been set on PurpleMash to support your learning of maths.
English: The online grammar lesson this week will focus on ”homophones ”, the other lesson is on “Reading comprehension” with a focus on vocabulary and inference skills. There are Grammar 2dos on purple mash related to these and challenges on the Year 2 Home page. There are reading comprehensions on purple mash. On Thursday 4thMarch it is World Book Day, children are encouraged to spend this day completing activities based around books that they enjoy and join the World Book Day lessons on the video centre.
