Home-School Work (w.c. 21/6/21)

20 Jun 2021

Please find below a selection of work for week commencing Monday 21st June 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 continuing our work on our new class novel - Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl.

1. Understand the thoughts of a character
Read up to the end of Chapter 14 - Badger Has Doubts. In this chapter, Badger starts to feel a bit guilty about taking the food. Put yourself into Badger's shoes and help him to think of reasons for and against carrying on stealing from the farmers. The chapter will give you some ideas, then you can add some of your own, for example:

For - Well, I do quite fancy some delicious duck for my tea!     Against - We could get caught by the farmers!

Present your ideas in your book however you like. You could put them in a table with 'For' and 'Against', draw badger with thought bubbles around him, or write a list of ideas and colour code them for and against.

2. Write a persuasive argument for a character
Choose whether you think Badger should or shouldn't continue to take the food with Mr Fox. Then, imagine you have the chance to talk to him, and write an argument to persuade him to do what you think. You can use all your ideas from the last activity to help you, but this time we'll be writing in full sentences in our best writing. It's just like we did for our Rosa Parks arguments - make sure you give your own reasons, but also argue back to reasons from the other side! I'm excited to see who can be the most persuasive!

Red/Amber/Green Writing Targets and Example

3. Extra Learning Tasks (optional)
- Draw your own map of the underground tunnels the animals have used. Add on things like: Badger's home, Mr Fox's hideout, the chicken house, the turkey storehouse, the tunnels.
- Complete the 'What Happens to Badger?' activity in this booklet: label the events on the graph in order.

LO: To design a healthy meal plate

This week, we are designing healthy meal plates for us to make in school next week. Revise 'balanced diets' by watching this video: BBC Bitesize - What is a balanced diet? 

When you're done, create your design of a healthy meal plate. Make sure you include the right amount of the food groups and follow the ideas for how to make it suitable for our audience and purpose that we came up with last week:

Audience: Small children
- Cut into small pieces
- Not too hot
- Nothing too hard
- Keep things separate on the plate in case they are fussy eaters

Purpose: Be healthy and look attractive
- Use different food groups
- Cut into nice shapes
- Use colourful food
