Home Learning for w/c 20.04.20

Please find below an overview of activities that we hope the children will be able to enjoy.

English activities

Reading Comprehension – The Enormous Turnip. There are 3 different levels of text for children to choose from, then answer the questions.

Creative writing lesson 1 – Story plan.  What changes to The Enormous Turnip story could you make?  See the notes for ideas of how you could plan your own version of this story, then draw a story map.

Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar - task: Noun Phrases and Compound Nouns (A).  Remember a compound word is a word made up from two separate words e.g. foot + ball = football.

Creative writing lesson 2 – Using your story plan, write up your own story based on The Enormous Turnip. See the note for a checklist of what you need to include.

Handwriting – use the resource for guidance on the cursive joins.  Practise 2 lines of these before writing our each word 5 times in your green book.

Please see further resources below to support these activities:

Maths activities

As we have already covered all of the Year 2 objectives for maths, the activities have been chosen to practise skills and deepen understanding.

Money, Measurement and Addition and Subtraction recap – please begin each activity with a title so we know which one you are doing, and write your answers in the green book.   Where applicable we would like all children to attempt the ‘Mastery’ tasks, and those that would like to challenge themselves can then answer the ‘Mastery with Greater Depth’.

Answers for these tasks are also included below. 

Times Tables and My Maths activities are detailed in the overview.

The children are used to working in maths books with squared paper – if they would like to draw some vertical lines on their pages to help with presentation then please feel free to do so.

Other curriculum areas

Please use your judgement as to what to put in the book as it may not always be necessary / appropriate. Remember you can email photos to us, which would be lovely to share with the children and look back on when we are back at school and celebrating all their hard work!

Science & Geography activity - Please find below further information about this task and also some fact sheets that your child might find useful.  Also included is the West Park Tree Trail leaflet containing a lot of information.  You can also of course use the internet or books at home for this research.
