Home Learning W/B 22nd February 2021

Hi everyone! 
I hope you all had a lovely week off school and enjoyed relaxing and playing at home! 
I had a lovely week because I went on lots of walks but I also had lots of 'lazy days' at home and I watched movies and did lots of house-work! 
 
Last week we celebrated 'Pancake Tuesday' (I had lots of pancakes!!), then it was 'Ash Wednesday' which is the start of Lent. Lent is the time when we give thanks and prepare ourselves for Easter! During Lent we can give up something or do something extra to help those in need - just like Jesus gave up his life on Earth for us. I know all of you will be trying to do extra things at home to help your parents and families during these unusual times! 
 
Get ready to celebrate World Book Day next week!  Find out all about the Book Bingo here: Book Bingo video 
If you complete all the bingo activities you will be entered into a competition in school... there will be prizes!! The Book Bingo ticket is below!
 
                                                                      World Book Day
 
 
I am excited for this new Half Term because I have got some very exciting topics to teach you and hopefully we will all be back in school together very soon! 
 
Have a great week! 
From Miss Corkill
Monday

English: Today I would like you to complete the reading comprehensions below. 
 
Spellings: This Half Term I am going to introduce you to a new daily time-table for you to follow to practise your spellings. Each week you will complete the same carousel of activities.

Come and See: Please see the document below with teaching steps and the activity I would like you to complete. 
Tuesday
 
Maths: First complete the 'flashback 4' activity. Then watch the video and complete the worksheet below. 
 
English: 

conjunction is a word that links two words or phrases together, such as ‘and’, ‘but’, 'or' and ’so'. In Year 2, your child begins to use these words to make longer sentences, such as ‘James bought a bat and ball’ or ‘Joe wanted to buy some sweets but he did not have enough money to buy them’.

Your child will learn how to use different conjunctions to express different meanings. For example, ‘Tom brought his boots and so did Ali’ compared to ‘Tom brought his boots but Ali forgot’.

 

Today I would like you to look at the document below. It has a range of activities for you to complete to help you use 'so', 'and', 'but' and 'or'. It will also help you choose the correct conjunction so that your sentences make sense. I want you to complete the tasks onto paper so you can practise writing in full sentences and ensuring your handwriting is neat too! 

History: This Half Term we are learning about a very special, significant person called 'Florence Nightingale'. There is a picture of her below.  
Today I want you to research facts about her. You can record your facts in any way (for example: typed up or written out; a spider diagram or an information poster). 
 
Questions I want to you to answer? 
 
- Who is Florence Nightingale? 
- Is she still alive? 
- Why is she famous? 
Wednesday 
 
 
Maths: First complete the 'flashback 4' activity. Then watch the video and complete the worksheet below. 
 
English: Today I would like you to continue looking at conjunctions. 
First I would like you to watch the videos and read the information on the page below. 
 
 
Once you have watched the video I would like you to write 5 sentences using the conjunctions: 
- and 
- but 
-so
- or 
- because 
 
Remember I want you to add lots of detail to your writing and I want you to continue to try your best with your handwriting! Remember you can log onto letter- join to practise your handwriting. 
French: This again is another fun activity for you to complete, if you wish! 
 
First watch the songs and colours video below! Then complete the 'colour by numbers' worksheet. 
 
 
Computing: Last week you should have received your 'code.org' log ins. Today I would like you to complete your code.org work. 
 
Your child has been on code.org before so they should know what to do! This course is a course we use throughout the year. Each level gets progressively harder so there is not a specific level I want your child to try and reach or complete today!
Every task they complete automatically saves, so they can work through the programme at their own level. I would like the children to play this for around 30-40 minutes. When they log out it will automatically save their work, ready for when they next log on. 
Thursday
 
 
Maths: First complete the 'flashback 4' activity. Then watch the video and complete the worksheet below. 
 
English: 
In Year 2, children are expected to use subordinating conjunctions to join clauses.
For example: I will go out to play if it stops raining.
 
Clause - Clauses are the building blocks of English sentences. A main clause is a group of words that contain a subject (the noun or pronoun) and a verb (the action word). Subordinate clauses do not normally make sense on their own.
 
Simple sentence - A simple sentence is a sentence that only contains one main clause. For instance, the above example ‘I will go out to play.’ is also a simple sentence as it is made of one clause.
 
Complex sentence - A complex sentence is where a main clause is joined together with a subordinate clause using a subordinating conjunction.
For example: Louisa had a surprise birthday party when she was seven.
 
 
Today I would like you to complete the two worksheets below to help you become more familiar with what a complex sentence looks like! 
Science: This week we are thinking about how we 'Look after our Pets'. Some of you my already be experts at this if you have pets at home and you will know what different animals need to stay healthy and happy. If you do not have any pets at home - do not worry! I have got a website for you to explore and also a power-point to read! you can also google extra information if you need to! 
 
 
I would like you to go onto the website above and read the information below! Then I would like you to choose one animal that people may have as a pet. I want you to then create a poster about how to look after that animal. You can draw pictures on your poster too! 
Friday
 
Maths: First complete the 'flashback 4' activity. Then watch the video and complete the worksheet below. 
 
English: We are looking at using conjunctions to turn simple sentences into complex sentences. 
 
 
In Year 2, children are expected to use subordinating conjunctions to join clauses.
For example: I will go out to play if it stops raining.
 
Clause - Clauses are the building blocks of English sentences. A main clause is a group of words that contain a subject (the noun or pronoun) and a verb (the action word). Subordinate clauses do not normally make sense on their own.
 
Simple sentence - A simple sentence is a sentence that only contains one main clause. For instance, the above example ‘I will go out to play.’ is also a simple sentence as it is made of one clause.
 
Complex sentence - A complex sentence is where a main clause is joined together with a subordinate clause using a subordinating conjunction.
For example: Louisa had a surprise birthday party when she was seven.
 
Today I would like you to complete the worksheet below. You need to add a subordinating conjunction to the simple sentences to make them complex! 
PE: I thought as a way to end our first week back into learning from home it would be nice if we completed a calm Yoga session!

Music: Listen to the song called 'I'm OK'. Then click on the document below to see some fun activities you can do that link to the song!
