Y2 Home Learning 2.3.21

Here is the Y2 work for 2.3.21

Thursday 4th March is World Book Day! If your child would like to dress up as a favourite book character for the live lesson on Thursday, they are more than welcome to, but there is no expectation that children do this. Please see the World Book Day blog (posted before Half Term) for more information about World Book Day. We are particularly excited about the potato book characters and  hearing about the children’s favourite books, in whatever way they would like to share them. 

If you have done any World Book Day activities and your child would like to share them with their peers during the live lesson on Thursday, please either email them to your child’s teacher prior to the lesson or remind your child to have it with them during the live lesson. We will spend a large proportion of the live lesson, on Thursday, celebrating all things to do with World Book Day. 

If you would like any photos related to World Book Day to be shared on the website, please email them, with permission, to your child’s class teacher by the end of the school day on Friday 5th March.

On Tuesday, you need to plan your diary entry. Your writing will be about one of the characters in the Cinderella story. You can choose which character you write about. It needs to be in past tense and first person, you need to pretend you are the character from the story. Your picture goes in the top box and your writing goes in the box underneath. If you normally do yellow, you need to verbally order the events to an adult. If you normally do blue, you need to record the main events in chronological order using the planning sheet with 8 event boxes. If you normally do green, you need to include time words in your plan. If you normally do white, then you need to plan your writing on the planning sheet with 12 event boxes, making sure your events are in chronological order.

Maths  - introduced in the live lesson 

On Tuesday, we will be learning how to draw pictograms. The children will need to think what data they want to add into their pictogram. E.g. Colours of lego bricks, tins in the cupboard, toys etc.

They will be making a pictogram with the actual objects and labelling the axes with the numbers and objects. They can then use this data to draw out their data collected into a pictogram on paper.  

If you missed the live lesson, the narrated PowerPoint can be found here:  

L.O. To be able to interpret and construct simple pictograms.
