Wednesday 21st October
Good Morning 2S on this lovely Wednesday morning which marks the half-way point in our strange week. How did you get on yesterday? I hope you enjoyed the gymnastics activities - they were my favourite!
Here are today's tasks:
First of all practise your spellings and perhaps even your joined up handwriting:
(This list is the Advanced list.)
In this story, you will find words that all contain the long e sound but the words contain different graphemes: /ee/, /ea/ and the e_e split digraph. Can you list them all?
We've looked at four of the vowel split digraphs now so here's a game for you to play:
From our work so far this week, how many words can you remember? Which will be your longest list? (We'll be looking at the u_e split digraph in more detail tomorrow.)
Today in Maths we're looking at 10 more and 10 less. Some of you are already really confident with this and will be able to move quickly through this and do the tasks. Others will need to do more talking about the 100 square.
Talk through these with an adult:
Now do these on your own:
Talk through this with an adult:
Here are today's activity sheets:
Your letter to a Reception Child must be looking great by now.
The next areas of school that I would like you to think about are their playground and the school grounds. They love exploring the school grounds when they do Adventure Friday.
Make some notes about these pictures before you start writing.
Here's my WAGOLL paragraph to read before you write your own:
Think carefully about your Capital Letters (CL) and Full Stops (FS). You may need to end your sentences with question marks (?) or exclamation marks (!), too.
Do you need any other punctuation such as commas (if you have included a list) or apostrophes (in words like don't)? Check your spelling, too.
Here are two more Victorian photographs with information that you must read. Reread it until you can read it fluently. Check with an adult if there is anything that you do not understand.
The questions will make you use your inference skills: they will make you think and also give you a chance to write your own opinion (what you believe is right or wrong).
Learning for Life:
Linked to Black History Month, we have been looking at DIVERSITY. This also links closely with the work that you did yesterday about RESPECT.
Last week we shared the story of 'The Smeds and the Smoos' by Julia Donaldson. It certainly gave us lots to talk about, especially the views of the grandparents at the start of the story.
I'm sure you'd like to listen to it again!
Did you know that the opposite of RESPECT is DISRESPECT?
So if you are not respectful to others, then you are disrespectful.
Read through these scenarios. You could even act them out. Decide if each one is showing RESPECT or DISRESPECT and how this is shown.
If you were in school, we would have a weekly outdoor P.E. lesson.
Here's a video to give you ideas that you can try out in your garden (or indoors if the weather is poor or you can't go out.)
Well, that's everything for today. I'm sure you have done your very best to make me and your parents proud.
I'll be back with more work for you tomorrow.
Bye for now,
Mrs Stansfield x
