Home-School Work (w.c. 12/7/21)

09 Jul 2021

Please find below a selection of work for week commencing Monday 12th July 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 writing our own non-chronological reports about India.

1. Write a caption to go with an image
A 'caption' is a small sentence to tell you what is happening in an image. Choose 3 or 4 images you would like to use in your India report - these could be photos, illustrations or diagrams. Think of a caption using formal language to explain what is in each image. You can then cut these out and arrange them onto a piece of paper to make your template for your report.

2. Write a non-chronological report about India
Use your plan from last week (I will email you a copy if needed). Write sentences to go in each of your 4 sections. Remember:

- Start each section with a subheading
- Use 'formal' language (e.g. science words) and not story language (e.g. 'once upon a time')
- Only use '!' for shocking facts. 
- Your job is to help people learn, not to entertain this time!

3. Create key features for an information text
Non-chronological reports like information books often have extra features to help the reader. Can you create at least one of these to go with your report?

Contents - If you used more than one page, you could create a contents page to tell readers which section is on which page.

Glossary - Underline or highlight important words in your report that people might not know the meaning of. Add a glossary at the end to say what the words mean. 

Fun fact boxes - You could add some boxes with random or interesting facts. Your box could say 'did you know?'

A quiz - Some information texts have quizzes at the end to see what people have learned. Can you make a quiz for yours?




In Maths this week, we are looking at measure and revising previous learning on measuring and comparing lengths.

Task 1  - LO: Measure length (recap)
Video    Worksheet 

Task 2  - LO: Measure length in cm
Video    Worksheet 

Task 3  - LO: Compare lengths

Video    Worksheet   


Wider Curriculum: Computing

LO: To make an animation appear near or far
In computing, we are continuing with our animations. We do this by adding frames (pictures) where the object has moved slightly in each one, so it looks like they're moving when we play them together. This week, we are learning:

- You can change the direction of your character using the 'flip' tool
- You can make your character appear to be running closing by making it slightly bigger each time it moves (use the '+' button)
- You can make your character appear to be running further away by making it slightly smaller each time it moves (use the '-' button)

Visit the iLearn2 Animation page and follow the link to the Junior Infant Tools Animation website (next to the first video). Can you create your own animation to show a character running around and trying to escape? Make sure your character runs in different directions, and near and far.
