Friday 15th May 2020
Join in with Joe Wicks' workout this morning to wake you up!
Miss Walker's and Miss Howes' Groups: This week you have been working really hard to read the story 'Brer Rabbit's Trickbag'. Today we would like to open up the story again and remind yourself of what happened - you could tell it to your grown up or have another look at your storyboard! Now have a go at answering the 'Think back!' questions on page 65.
Remember to go back to the story and use it help you answer the questions!
Miss Rowland's Group: Log in to Oxford Owl and find the story ‘The Boss Dog of Blossom Street’. Read through the story with someone in your house, taking it in turns to read a page each.
When you have finished, complete the ‘After reading’ and ‘Book Quiz’ sections found on the inside cover of the book with a grown up in your house.
Miss Upton's, Mrs Hussain's and Miss Potter's Groups: Today we would like you to read the story 'Some Dogs Do'.
Once you have read the story, create a book review. Did you enjoy the book? Why? Who was your favourite character? Draw a picture of them and write a sentence to describe them underneath.
Follow the link and have a look at today's Pobble 365 picture 'Please look after this bear'. Why do you think the picture has been given this name?
Look at the sentence challenge, write out these sentences in your home learning book in your neatest handwriting (maybe try joining too) and fill in the gaps with the best words you can think of.
Now have a look at the 'Sick sentences!' They need help as they are so boring. Can you rewrite them and up level them to make them more exciting?
Miss Rowland's and Miss Higgins' Groups: This week you have worked so hard looking back at time. We have looked at o’clock, half past and both quarter past and quarter to - well done!
Here is a hip hop telling the time video - watch and see what you think! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65_c1CpfTjU
Today we are going to check our understanding of time from what we have learnt this week. We have set two worksheets practising recognising the time and then writing the correct times as well for o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. This is your chance to shine and show everything you have learnt this week- good luck!
Miss Howes' and Miss Walker's Groups: Log in to Espresso using the login details in your home learning book. Now follow these steps to find your activity: Key Stage 1 - Maths - Geometry - Videos. Now watch the video 'Guess the 2D Shape' and join in with Tom and Ruby's game.
Now go back and click on 'Activities'. Your activities for today are 'Name the 2D Shape' and 'Properties of 2D Shapes'.
Today we are going to do some PSHE focusing on looking at your future. What do you think you will be doing when you are at high school? When you are an adult?
Log in to Purple Mash and follow these steps: Key Stage 1 - Topics - PSHE - When I grow up. Watch the video of children explaining what they want to do when they grow up and have a think about yourself.
Now, complete the poster, explaining clearly what you want to do when you are older and why you want to do this in 5 sentences. Don’t forget to save it when you are finished!
Follow the link to remind yourself of our 'Sporty Spelling Challenge'! Then have a go at spelling these Year 2 words with actions:
Check in with animals at Edinburgh Zoo by having a look at their live webcams!
Have a lovely weekend Year 2. Remember to stay home and stay safe!

Thursday 14th May 2020
Follow the link to practise your yoga with Jamie and Popcorn the Dolphin!
Miss Walker's and Miss Howes' Groups: Log in to Oxford Owl and find the book we started yesterday 'Brer Rabbit's Trickbag'. Remind yourself of what has happened in the story so far and tell your grown up. Now, we would like you to read Chapters 3 and 4.
Brer Rabbit's Trickbag is a really long story - we are so proud of you for reading all of it! Today, we would like you to create a storyboard for Brer Rabbit's Trickbag. (Click on the link for a storyboard template.) See if you can retell the story in just six pictures!
Miss Rowland's Group: The text I have given you to read today has no title! Click on the link to open it, read the text and then give the text an appropriate title. What do you think it should be called?
When you have finished reading, fill in the extension box in your home learning book and verbally answer the 7 questions to an adult in your house.
Miss Upton's, Mrs Hussain's and Miss Potter's Groups: Today we would like you to read the story 'Clem and Crab'. When you have read the extract from the story, using what has happened, make a prediction about what you think might happen next.
TIP! A prediction means making a sensible guess.
Watch the clip ‘Bubbles’: https://www.literacyshed.com/bubbles.html
Watch the bubbles and think about the adventures the girl goes on. Today we would like you to draw 3 pictures of 3 different adventures you could go on with the magic bubbles.
- Where would you go?
- What would you do?
- What would you see?
As well as drawing 3 adventures, make sure you write underneath what you would do. Try and write it with sentence openers: first, then, next, after that. Can you think of any different sentence openers you could use?
Miss Rowland's and Miss Higgins' Groups: Today we are going to look at… can you guess? Quarter to!
Follow the link and watch the tutorial video to recap how to tell time to quarter to the hour.
Now is your chance to show you really understand ‘quarter to’. Remember the long/minute hand is on number 9 at quarter to the hour. The tricky thing with quarter to is remembering that the short/hour hand is showing you what hour it is going to, so you have to look on to see what hour it is nearly at - that is the one you say in your time!
Open your worksheet and have a go at recognising these times and then trying to draw them yourself too.
Miss Howes' and Miss Walker's Groups: Remind yourself of how to count in 2s by practising with this fun video! Follow the link and click on 'Summer Term - Week 4'. Now watch the video 'Lesson 4 - Compare number sentences'. Today you will be looking at 'greater than' and 'less than'!
When the page says 'Have a go!', pause the screen and have a go at the questions in your home learning book.
In Computing today we are going to look at ‘Debugging’. ‘Debugging’ is when you look at the algorithm (set of instructions) and fix the parts that are stopping the code from working. Go to the ‘Purple Mash’ website and log on using the log in details in your home learning book. Click on your ‘2Do’ section at the top and complete the ‘debugging’ activity, listening to the instructions for each section first.
Check in with today's Happy News on Newsround!

Miss Rowland's and Miss Higgins' Groups: Today we are moving onto reading the time 'quarter past'. Can you remember where the long minute hand points to for quarter past? Yes, on number 3. It is past the hour so when you look at the hour hand, look what hour it has gone past too.

Miss Upton's, Mrs Hussain's and Miss Potter's Groups: Today we would like you to read a new story called 'Bob goes Pop'. Before you read the story, have a look at the picture on the front cover below. Write a prediction about what you think might happen in the story and who Bob might be.
Once you have done that, we would like you to read a few pages of the story.
