Remote Learning 8th-12th February

 
 
Welcome year 2 parents, carers and support bubble members to the final week of remote learning this half term! 
 
 
Thank you everyone who sent in both pieces of work last week. When we've been able to look at all of the writing and the maths, we will send feedback to your child.
 
 
 
Week beginning 8th February
 

If your child is working from home, we would like them to continue to do the following:

  • read with you every day
  • practise their handwriting every day
  • learn their spellings every day
  • complete an English and a Maths task every day
  • complete one Science task each week
  • complete one Curriculum task each week 
 

This week, we would like to see children's completed story writing (see Literacy Activities). Please email in photos of these to y2@elystjohns.cambs.sch.uk 
Please use this email to get in touch with the year 2 team for any help, support or guidance with any of the remote learning offer.
 
Please see the suggested timetable below for ideas of timings.
 


Literacy: 
This week's Literacy activity is to write a story based on Roald Dahl's short story, 'Jack and the Beanstalk', from his book, 'Revolting Rhymes'. 
 
Maths: This week's maths starts to look at division, starting with sharing. Please refer to the plan for activities, guidance and learning videos.
 
A Sentence a Day: Use this writing starter to keep your child writing at least one sentence per day, ensuring they use a capital letter to start and punctuation to end.
 
Spellings: See the attached document for this week's spellings for your child to learn. Little BirdsSpooky Spellings and Karate Cats are fun ways to practise spelling, punctuation and grammar.
 
Handwriting: We hope that your child's handwriting is becoming neater and clearer. Capital and lowercase letters should be well formed and appropriately-sized now. Your child should practise at least one join a day from the handwriting resource (e.g. this week could be: de, di, ds, du, dy).
 
CLIC: This is the second week of the current three-week plan. At the end of the week, please ask your child to complete a CLIC test and Learn It test (read the attached 'CLIC explained' help sheet for more information).
 
CLIC extra: This link takes you to the many jingles and songs to help your child learn their Learn Its. Hit the Button could also be used for recalling number facts. We have also uploaded calculation challenges to your child's Purple Mash account.
 
Class stories: Here are all the chapters read from James and the Giant Peach: 1-23-56-78-1011-1213-14, 14-1617-1818-1920-2122-2324-2525-26272829-3031-3233-3637 and 38-39
*NEW* Keeping with the Roald Dahl theme, here is The Enormous Crocodile read in two parts: Part 1 and Part 2.
 
Reading: We hope you've been able to have a look at the free e-books on Oxford Reading Tree. Once you've created a free account, your child will be able to read the books for their book band level. 
 
Reading Comprehension Task: Please see the task below. 
 
Purple Mash: Click on the '2Dos' icon where your child can work through the tasks that have been set for them which cover aspects of phonics, grammar and number facts. We are responding to all the work handed in so far and comments left for us - thank you everyone!
 
Curriculum: Attached is the Curriculum Menu with seven activities to choose from. These can be done in any order. Please do send us in photos of your child's learning - we'd love to see photos of completed tasks!
 
Science: Attached are the six Science lessons. We recommend completing the Science activities in order.
 
Fun exercises: Here are two new Just Dance videos to try for exercise breaks: Happy and Best Song Ever (previous ones: Waka WakaDynamite and That Power). The children just choose their player and they copy the moves. See also the Daily Walk Activities.
