We hope you have had a lovely, restful weekend. Hopefully you have your new pack for learning over the next 2 weeks.
Week 5 Home Learning
Here is a copy of the timetable for this week. You also have this in your pack. You will notice that there is no maths lesson for today. This is so we can have a focused reading lesson. Maths for today is to set up TTRockstars!
As there is no taught maths lesson today, please start the day by trying your TTRockstars logins.
There is a TTRockstars information letter for parents in your pack; this has a sticker stating login details for your child. The parent guide explains the different modes that your child can play.
TTRockstars is for learning times table facts by heart, including the division facts too. We have set the tables for Year 2 so that every week, they will just be focusing on one times table and after a few weeks this will change to two and then all the times tables for Year 2. Remember, we only expect children to know their x2, x5, x 10 and x3 tables by the end of Year 2.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any problems. We hope you enjoy playing and learning your times tables!
9:30: Please join us for a drama lesson. All children will need is their imaginations! We will be going on an adventure to create a 5 part story. This will form the basis of our writing for this week. There are no teaching slides to accompany this lesson.
11:00am: Reading Lesson.
Today we will read ‘The Sea of Tranquility’ by Mark Haddon. Please find attached a copy of the story. This is to look at after the lesson. Mrs Lace will be sharing and discussing the story with the children on the meet.
Children will then be completing the Lesson 1 activity from their packs. Please note: The Lesson 2 activity is for completion on Friday.
1pm Spelling: We will have a spelling test based on last week’s ey ending words followed by an introduction of the new spellings: Words beginning wr.
9:30 English: Today we will begin to write the story we made up in the drama lesson on Monday.
Here are the lesson slides if you are unable to join us.
11am Maths: Today we start a new topic on statistics. The majority of the work will be completing the White Rose Maths booklets although we have included some squared paper so that children can create their own tables and charts if they wish to do so.
Today’s lesson is all about tally charts:
There are then two videos. The first is an activity and the second matches the first task in the booklet- Make Tally Charts. Please complete pages 2-5 today.
1pm Science: Today we will carry out our mopping up spills investigation. Here are the teaching slides:
