Home-School Work (w.c. 10/5/21)

09 May 2021

Please find below a selection of work for week commencing Monday 10th May 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 - Homework can be found in the 'Homework' tab **



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 looking at the story of The Stone Cutter and getting ready to write our own versions next week.

Task 1 - LO: To predict what might happen next
Enjoy the first half of the story by watching this video of The Stone Cutter up until 3 minutes 13 seconds. Pause the video and think about what might happen next, once Yoshi has wished to become a cloud. Write a few sentences to predict what you think will happen.

Task 2 - LO: To understand the moral of the story
Watch the rest of the video and enjoy the rest of the story. Have a think about these questions:
- What did Yoshi become at the end of the story?
- Why did he want to become a stone cutter again?
- Do you think he will be happier as a stone cutter now?
- What do you think this story is trying to teach us?

Write a few sentences to describe what you think the moral (the 'lesson') of the story is. 


Task 3 - LO: To plan my own version of a story
Next week we are going to write our own versions of the story. See if you can think of a new sequence of 6 things that the main character wishes to be, with the sixth one being them wishing to become a human again. It might be helpful to think of your 5th wish first - what could be overpowered by a human? Maybe a tree being cut down, water being put into a bottle, or a vegetable being eaten? Plan out your ideas on a piece of plain paper or on this template.



This week in Maths, we are revising partitioning and looking at all the different ways that numbers can be represented in tens and ones.

Task 1  - LO: To represent numbers to 100
Video    Worksheet 

Task 2  - LO: To show tens and ones in a part whole model
Video    Worksheet 

Task 3  - LO: To order objects and numbers

Video    Worksheet   

Wider Curriculum: History

LO: To know what challenges Mary Seacole faced as a nurse 

Watch this video to learn about the start of Mary Seacole's journey to help in the Crimean War. You may want to watch Parts 2 and 3 if you have time :) When you're done, have a read of one of these information sheets to learn more (choose the reading level you prefer). Think about these questions:

- Why did Mary Seacole get turned away from Florence Nightingale's hospitals?
- Was she treated fairly?
- How did she show that she wouldn't give up?

When you've learned about her, use your knowledge to create your own Mary Seacole factfile
