Home-School Work (w.c. 15/3/21)

12 Mar 2021

Please find below a selection of work for week commencing Monday 15th March if you are unable to be in school due to self-isolation or other Covid-19 related reasons:

** PLEASE NOTE - This is only work for children who are off school, which mirrors what we are completing in class. This is not the homework for the week - no homework until after Easter! **



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)


Continue to follow your child's current programme 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

Read Longer Words - Read Write Inc - The next step from Set 3, applying our knowledge of sounds to work out longer words.

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.

Phase 6 Spelling Rules - PhonicsPlay - These games allow practice of the more complex spelling rules for Year 2, and are the next step from the Alternative Spellings work. You can go through these games at your own pace. 



This week, we are continuing with our poetry work by having fun with limericks! We'll look at how they're structured and use our phonics to explore rhyming words, to help us get ready to write our own.

Task 1 - LO: To understand the features of a limerick  
Watch this video to learn what a limerick is and how they are structured. Then, write a few sentences to say what you have learned about them. You could use these sentence starters:

Limericks are....        They have...      Some of the words...

When you read them, it sounds...


Task 2 - LO: To plan my own limerick
Have a read through this Powerpoint to learn a bit more about limericks. Then use this planning sheet to prepare some rhyming words. Choose what you want to write about (e.g. a cat) and something else to fit in your poem (e.g. he's playing with a ball). Use List A to come up with rhymes for your object (e.g. cat, mat, hat) and List B to come up with rhymes for the extra detail (e.g. ball, call, hall). 

Task 3 - LO: To write my own limerick with rhyming words
Today, have a go at writing your own limerick! Try to stick to the structure and the rhythm - if it sounds like it 'doesn't fit', tweak it a little until it sounds right. 



This week, we are revising key skills in addition and subtraction. 

Task 1  - LO: To add and subtract tens

Task 2  - LO: To subtract 2 digit numbers

Wider Curriculum: Art

LO: To use mixed media to represent water

We have been studying 'Water Lilies' by Claude Monet. Last week, we experimented with colour mixing to form different shades of blue for the water, and using white markings to represent the reflection of the light.

This week's task - have a go at recreating 'Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lilies' (below). Use the skills we learnt last week to represent the water and the lilies, then consider how you will form the bridge. You can use whatever media you have at home. In school, we will be using wax resist by forming the bridge and the key features in crayon then overlaying with watercolour paint for the water. You could use this tutorial to help.
