Week Beginning Monday 4th May

Good morning Year 2. I hope you had a lovely weekend.

English: Please refer to Day 1 on the Lancashire weekly plan for this week’s English. This week you will be learning about instructions.  

Maths: This week we will be measuring volume/capacity and temperature. Visit the link to see this activity and fast forward to 9 mins 8 secs ‘Capacity Puddles’.

Today, I would like you to collect different size containers from around your house (yoghurt pots, egg cups, jars, cartons, plastic bottles etc.) Estimate and order your containers from those that would hold the least to most liquid. Number your containers once you have ordered them. The next activity will work best outside on a day when the ground is dry. With chalk, draw a circle on the floor to estimate the size you think each puddle will be.  Carefully, fill each one of your containers with water to the top (try not to spill any). Find a space and pour the water onto the floor and allow it to spread. Place the container next to the puddle so you know which container made which puddle. You could measure the size of your puddle with a tape measure if you have one. Finally, look at the size of each puddle. Which container held the most? Which container held the least? Did you order the containers from least to most correctly at the beginning? Now order your containers from least to most.  

 

Topic: This week you will complete a fun STEM activity at home. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and something we are really embracing at school this year. 

You can choose to complete one of the challenges you have watched, open the attached file STEM Challenge Cards below this post or search for a different STEM activity online. With an adult read through and find a challenge that is achievable for you to do at home. Some are long and may take you a couple of days and others are short. You can work together with your brothers, sisters and parents and have fun as a family with these tasks. Take photos and videos of your achievements and email them to me including which number challenge you completed. I look forward to seeing what you create and posting them on our class page. Have fun! 

Take care

Miss Rigby

Good morning Year 2.

English: Please refer to Day 2 on the Lancashire weekly plan for this week’s English. Below this post I have attached the Gruffalo – Mouse Toast recipe to save you creating a log in. 

Maths: Today we will continue to learn about volume/capacity by comparing and reading scales. Watch the BBC Clip 

I have attached a booklet full of lots of volume and capacity questions. These activities include ordering and comparing, reading different scales, investigations and word problems. Complete as many of the activities as you can (this can be throughout the week). You do not need to print these pages, just write the answers in your home learning book.

Topic: Continue to complete your STEM Challenge. If you did a short challenge yesterday, then choose different challenge. Why not let someone else choose todays challenge. You could pick a colour ‘Blue’ for Science or ‘Orange’ for engineering. Then call a number between 1-22 and that’s the activity to complete.

Take care

Miss Rigby

Please find the Gruffalo – Mouse Toast recipe referred to on Day 2 of this weeks English. 

Good morning Year 2.

English: Please refer to Day 3 on the Lancashire weekly plan for this week’s English. If you have access to a printer, I have attached a writing template below to help you write your instructions/recipe.

Maths: Today we will be reading scales on a thermometer to measure temperature (how hot or how cold).

On the blue left side called ‘reading scales’, you should be able to play the top 5 games. The thermometer scales count in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s. Next, on the purple right side called ‘Difference’, select one set of thermometers. This time you will be finding the difference between the two temperatures. You can do this in two ways. Count on from one to the other or subtract. Remember the word difference is one of our take away words. If you would like to, I have attached an activity sheet for you to complete: 'How Hot, How Cold. 

NB: Parents if you find your child is finding anything tricky, firstly check that they recognise what the scale is reading in 1s, 2s, 5s or 10s including the markers without a number. Also check if any scale is in negative numbers. This is not a Year 2 requirement to work with negative numbers so you might want to change temperatures particularly on the difference activity to zero and above.

 

Topic: Continue to complete your STEM Challenge or have a go at another one. Keep sending me your pictures/videos but also what you thought about the challenge.

What did you think before you started?

Did you think it was going to be achievable or impossible?  

Did it work?

Did anything go wrong?

Did you have to change anything?

What problem solving did you have to do?

Was anything tricky?

Which part was most difficult and why?

Did you enjoy it?

What was your favourite part and why?

Who did you work with?

Would you recommend this challenge to your friends or family?

Take care

Miss Rigby

Print one of these, if possible, to help you write your recipes on Wednesday and Thursday. 

Good morning Year 2.

English: Please refer to Day 4 on the Lancashire weekly plan for this week’s English.   

Maths: Continue to complete some more of the capacity booklet from Tuesday, particularly the word problem activities on pages 18 & 19. I have also attached our Lancashire planning sheet. On page 2 you will find 3 boxes called ‘Using and Applying’, ‘Contextual/Real Life Learning’ and ‘Assessment’. Work together to solve any of the ‘Using and Applying’ problems. You could also work on your own to complete the ‘Assessment’ questions to see what you have learnt this week.
