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.

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 writing our biographies on Florence Nightingale. 

Task 1 - LO: I can use more interesting time vocabulary  
For our holiday recounts, we looked at using time conjunctions e.g. first, next, then, to start our sentences. This time, we are writing about a whole lifetime, not just a day, so we need more interesting time vocabulary. It's really important we don't repeat ourselves. Can you think of as many different ways as possible to say these phrases? The first is done for you as an example:

When she was young...   (e.g. When she was little... When she was a child... As a little girl... When she was at school)
As she got older...
When she was an adult...
When she got to the hospital...
After the war...


Task 2 - LO: Write the introduction of a biography
Begin by creating an information box with key facts e.g. date of birth, date of death, job. Then, start writing about the important parts of her life in order - use your planning sheet to help you (I will email this to parents if children are off). Stop when she become a nurse. Think about:

- When and where was she born?
- Where did she move to?
- What did she do as a child?
- Why did she want to become a nurse?


Task 3 - LO: To complete my biography
Finish youe biography by using your planning sheet to write about the rest of Florence Nightingale's life. Think about:

- What were the hospitals like when she got there?
- How did she make a difference?
- What did she do after the war finished?
- What do we remember her for today?

Try to round off your work with a nice 'finishing sentence' that brings things back to today, e.g. "We will always remember how Florence NIghtingale changed nursing and that's why Nightingale hospitals were named after her last year."

Wider Curriculum: DT

LO: To find out about a product to help with my design

For our Design and Technology project this half term, we will be designing and making a woven basket. This week, we need to do some product research. Use the internet or look through some catalogues to find out about baskets. You might even have some at home to look at! What kind of things are they used for? (e.g. picnics, storage in homes)  Who uses them? What kind of colours do different people like? (e.g. a basket for a baby's bedroom might be in pale colours) 

Create a page for your research - it can have pictures, labels, sentences and anything else you find useful!
