English & Maths Remote Learning (w.c. 25/1/21)

18 Jan 2021

Hello Giants,

Hope you have had a lovely weekend! We have an exciting week ahead, as we are starting a new book this week! You are going to love it - it's very, very funny :) In Maths, we are finishing up our work on Multiplication and Division. There's only 3 lessons left on those topics, so I have slotted in some Fluency sessions on our Maths Zoom days, as I know how much you enjoy showing off your skills in Fluency!

Happy learning,

Love Miss Daniel and Miss Richardson laugh
 

Reading/Phonics

You should have received a 'Personalised Learning' email to specify your child's reading level, and which Phonics programme would be best for them to follow at home. Please let me know if you haven't received this yet.

Use Oxford Owl to access reading books at your child's book band: 

Oxford Owl e-Book Library   (You will need to register for a free account)

Follow one of these programmes daily for Phonics learning:

Set 2 Lessons-  Read Write Inc - Features daily videos on a new sound.

Set 3 Sounds - Read Write Inc - Features daily videos on a new sound

Investigating Alternative Spellings - PhonicsPlay - Scroll down to Phase 5c and work through the 'Investigating Alternative Spellings' activities at your own pace. I'd recommend one activity per day e.g. a Phoneme Spotter one day, Word Sort the next day, Best Bet the next day. You can log in for free at the moment using the username and password on the PhonicsPlay homepage.

 

English: The Diary of a Killer Cat

This week, we are beginning work on our first 'proper' class novel - The Diary of a Killer Cat by Anne Fine. We'll read the book together in some English lessons and on Tuesday afternoons (Zoom class novel sessions Tuesday at 2:45pm), then use our English for reading, writing and spelling activities linked to the story. 


Task 1 (Monday) -  LO: To use the front cover to predict what might happen 
Zoom teaching input Monday 9:30am. Today, we will learn how to spot clues on a front cover to help us make a sensible prediction. We will write a few sentences to say what we think might happen, making sure we back up our ideas with clues from the cover.    Lesson 1 - Predictions    Video Link: Chapter 1


Task 2 (Tuesday) -  LO: To make inferences about a character
Zoom teaching input Tuesday 9:30am. 'Inference' means using clues in the text to give us ideas. Today, we will look at some clues about Tuffy (the main character) and think about what they tell us about him. Then, we will fill in the table to say what we have learned about him   Lesson 2 - Inference About Tuffy    Tuffy Characteristics Table
 

Task 3 (Wednesday) -  LO: To describe a character using evidence
Zoom teaching input during Class Novel session on Tuesday 2:45pm. Today, we are extending our learning on character descriptions from what we did in our fairytales work. This time, we are focusing on using the word 'because' to explain our thoughts on a character and back it up with evidence from the story. We are effectively taking our ideas from yesterday's work and putting it into full sentences.           Lesson 3 - Describing Tuffy with Evidence     Video Link: Chapter 2


Task 4 (Thursday) -  LO: To describe an event from different character's viewpoints
Zoom teaching input Thursday 9:30am. Today, we are learning how to put ourselves into a character's shoes and say what they think about an event in the story. We will also explore how different characters might speak differently to each other. This is one of my favourite lessons! :)    Lesson 4 - Viewpoints        Speech Bubbles Worksheet


Task 5 (Friday) -  LO: To add suffixes onto words ending in 'y'
No Zoom input for this lesson. As we have learned in class - 'y' is another unfriendly letter! He doesn't like to sit next to suffixes like 'es' and 'ed', so we have to swap him for an 'i' before we can add them on, e.g. cry/cries/cried. Read through the spelling rules lesson then choose one activity to practise (or more than one if you wish!). As always with spellings, you can just some words and put them into sentences afterwards if you like.  Lesson 5 - 'y' Spelling Rule   Activity 1 - Look Cover Write Check    Activity 2 - Wordsearch     Activity 3 - Board Game

Extra Learning Tasks (optional if you finish any activities in the week)

a) Before we read any more of the story, write your own Chapter 3. What do you think Tuffy might do next?

b) Have a go at writing your own diary on some days this week. Remember to start with the date, like we did for our Samuel Pepys' diaries! You could use this Diary Booklet Template if you like.

c) Choose a good part of another story and complete viewpoint speech bubbles for all of the characters.
 

Maths – Division and Revision

There's only 3 White Rose sessions left for this unit, so we will use our Zoom sessions on Tuesday and Friday to do a little bit of 'fluency' work revising things we learned before Christmas to keep in fresh in our minds! 


Task 1 (Monday) - LO: To know my odd and even numbers

No Zoom input for this lesson so use the video :)     Video      Worksheet      Answers     50 Grid  (for Q4)

Key Learning/Tips
- Children have already been taught that multiples of 2 end in 2, 4, 6, 8 or 0 and that we also call these 'even numbers'.
- We would use this rhyme to help children remember what odd and even numbers end in. 
- Remind them that ONLY the last digit can help you to decide, don't fall for the trick in 6b!
- If you don't any dice at home, use Google's Virtual Dice  :)



Task 2 (Tuesday) - LO: To remember how to add 2-digit numbers (fluency session)

Zoom teaching input Tuesday 11:00.  Today, we will have a little revision session on how to add up 2-digit numbers. On Zoom, we will go over how to draw our tens and ones, and how to use column method. If you can't make the Zoom, our Parents' Guide to Maths Methods will show you how we do it. Children should only need a brief reminder as we've done this lots in class! :)   [No video as revision session]    Question Sheet

Key Learning/Tips
- Your 'personalised learning' email will tell you which method your child is most confident with. 
- Please note: children do not need to know column method in Year 2, they simply need to add 2-digit numbers any way they feel confident with, so do not worry at all if this is not the method for them at this stage, let them stick to what they are comfortable with  :)

 

Task 3 (Wednesday) - LO: To divide by 5 in lots of ways
No Zoom input for this lesson so use the video :)     Video    Worksheet      Answers

Key Learning/Tips
- Remind children that 'x' number sentences always END in the biggest number and 'divides' always START with the biggest number. Children can use this to check their number sentences.
Virtual Tens and Ones may help with sharing out the big numbers in Q6. If you're sharing 50, share out 5 tens instead of 50 ones! You can also press the 'exchange button' (the one with the down arrow) to swap a ten stick into 10 ones if you need to break it up to share further. 

 

Task 4 (Thursday) - LO: To divide by 10 in lots of ways
No Zoom input for this lesson so use the video :)     Video    Worksheet      Answers

Key Learning/Tips
- Always check your groups at the end - are they all the same? If they're not, you might not have shared carefully.
- Remember, in arrays 'x' means "rows of"... for Q3, how many rows do you have and what's in each row?
- Q7 is very, very hard - don't panic if this is difficult, this is far beyond Year 2 expected level.

 

Task 5 (Friday) - LO: To remember how to subtract 2-digit numbers (fluency session)
Zoom teaching input Friday 9:30am.  Today, we will have another revision session - this time on how to subtract 2-digit numbers. On Zoom, we will go over how to draw our tens and ones, and how to use column subtraction. If you can't make the Zoom, our Parents' Guide to Maths Methods will show you how we do it. Children should only need a brief reminder as we've done this lots in class! :)   [No video as revision session]    Question Sheet

Key Learning/Tips
- Your 'personalised learning' email will tell you which method your child is most confident with. 
- If your child is struggling with regrouping at this stage, do not worry. This has only been covered briefly and we will be revisiting it later in the year.


Extra Learning Tasks (optional if you finish any activities in the week!)

a) Use these Food Division Challenge Cards to practise your division.

b) Practise making 'x' and 'divide' number families with these Spring Themed Division Sheets.

c) Complete some sheets from the Multiplication and Division Workbook.

d) Solve a set of Fluency number sentences at a level you're confident with (choose Red, Amber, Green or GO - or more if you want!)     Fluency 25.1.21         Parents' Guide to Methods
