Year 2 Remote Learning W.B. 11.1.21

Hello from your Teachers! ~ 
 
Hello Year 2 children and families! We hope you are all well and keeping super busy at home.
Well done if you completed some of the tasks on the website last week! We hope you have found the beginning of our new project 'Polar Opposites' interesting. Did you manage to stop your ice cube from melting?
We hope you enjoy the online learning this week, there are lots of new 'chilly' activities to keep you busy. Remember to get outside and enjoy some of these frosty days too if you can!
 
This week we have a story video for you to watch called 'While we can't Hug' - a lovely story about two friends who find lots of ways to show each other how much they care without hugging. 
 
We would also like you to try to think of 3 things that have made you happy each day this week. It could be anything at all, perhaps going for a walk, drawing a beautiful picture or eating your favourite food for dinner! You could share your ideas with your family or friends, write them down or draw them. 
 
Have a wonderful week. ~ 
Monday 
 
English
 
Can you draw a penguin? They are going to go on a journey…

Click on the file below entitled 'English' to learn how to draw simple penguins. You could give your penguins different clothes, hats, glasses, beards and jewellery! 

Do you know what a passport is and why we need one? Do you have one in your house that you can look at? 

Do you know what this is?

Stoke Hill Infant and Nursery School

Stoke Hill

Devon

EX4 7DB

Can you practice writing your home address? Is it in your or your grown up’s passport?

Now you’re ready to create your very own penguin passport so they can go on their journey!

Download and print Slide 2 in the file below entitled 'English' and draw your penguin in the ‘photograph’ section. Give them a name, think about what your penguin’s signature would look like and make up an address.

Maths

Don't forget you can use things from around your house to help you with these sums. Do you have any dried pasta shells? Any sweets?

Do you still have the resources that were sent home in your parent-teacher meeting envelope? A 100 square might be useful! Or you could use the interactive beadstring - just click on the link below entitled 'interactive bead string'.

Spelling -
 
Today you'll need someone to read some words to you.
You will be trying to accurately spell some 'high frequency' words (attached below, they can also be found online).
 
Use the 'Have a Go' sheet (attached below) or a page in your Remote Learning book to record your spellings.
 
1) Listen to a word from the list then 'have a go' at writing it. You can 'have a go' two or three more times, if you are not sure. Do this for 10 words in total.
2) Check the spelling of your words.
 
If you have written the word incorrectly: write it clearly (maybe in a different colour) next to your try.
If you want to carry on: pick another 10 words and repeat.
Tuesday
 
English 
 
Now time for your penguin’s adventure!

Look at Maggie Li’s book ‘Big City Atlas’. You can see some pages of it if you click on the link below entitled ‘Big City Atlas’.

In her book, a penguin visits lots of different places in the world and writes about what he sees. Can you talk to your grown up about the place your penguin is going to visit? Do you know at least four facts about it?

Draw a map like the ones in the book for your chosen place. Can you write some facts about it?

If you’re stuck for ideas there is a link below entitled ‘Barnaby Bear’s travels’. Here you will find some videos where Barnaby Bear visits some lovely cities!

Please see the Powerpoint below entitled 'Maths - Tuesday'. The teaching, practice and mastery documents continue on from yesterday's lesson.

We will be doing the same as yesterday but with a different set of words.
You'll need someone to read some words to you.
You will be trying to accurately spell some 'common exception' words (attached below, they can also be found online).

Can you watch the lesson and complete the suggested activities? If you have time you could also look at the Powerpoint below entitled ‘Oceans of the World’.
 
Can you use this to label the 5 main oceans of the world on the world map? It is Slide 1 on the document below entitled ‘Project W.B. 11.01.21’.
 
Lesson 2The Antarctic Scientific Research Station.
 
Look at the ‘Discovering Antarctica’ website and find out about the lives and work of the scientists who work on Antarctica. Explore the link below entitled ‘Discovering Antarctica’.
 
Can you find out more about what the weather and environment is like? Why is it important that there are scientists in Antarctica?
 
There are lots of great pages to discover on the website. Some even have video clips and sound recordings. The link below entitled ‘Living in Antarctica’ is useful for finding out about the lives of the scientists that work there. Would you like to work there?
 
Can you use what you have learnt to draw a picture of the Scientific Research Station and write down at least 5 facts about it? It is Slide 2 on the document below entitled ‘Project W.B. 11.01.21’.
 
If you have time you could also look at the Powerpoint below entitled ‘The Antarctic’.
 
Lesson 3Plan a visit to Antarctica.
 
Imagine you are going on a trip to the Scientific Research Station based in Antarctica!!! You will be going for several months and will need to make sure you pack everything you need to last you. Will you need sun cream? …will you need a bucket and spade?
 
To help you, explore the links below entitled ‘Packing your bag’ and ‘What (not) to wear!’. You even get to dress one of the scientists!
 
Can you use what you have learnt to draw pictures or write a list of the things you think you’ll need to take on your trip with you? It is Slide 3 on the document below entitled ‘Project W.B. 11.01.21’.
R.E. -
This week we are starting our new unit in Religious Education.
 
Look out the window. What you see?
Look around the room. What do you see?
Have a look at the photo story below.
 
Did you see anything that’s been created by a human?
What kind of person made these things?
How do you know?
What clues do you have?
 
Can you think of any adjectives to describe the creators? Maybe they are imaginative, skilful….
 
What questions would you like to ask the creators of these objects?
 
In your Remote Learning book draw the creation and write down your question.
You could divide your page into 2 or 4 if you wanted to show more creations.
