Year 2 Remote Learning Week Beginning 17th January 2022

Year 2 Remote Learning wk beginning 17th January 2022

Hi Year 2,

 

Here is your remote learning for this week if you are isolating, but remember, you don't have to complete any work at home if you feel poorly! Make sure your grown ups let the school office know if you are isolating. Mrs Large will check in with them via e-mail as soon as possible to check you are all ok, and to help you with your remote learning if needs be.

 

English

Please follow this link. You can complete one lesson per day (If you have already done some because you were isolating last week, please just continue from where you got to)https://classroom.thenational.academy/units/the-eagle-who-thought-he-was-a-chicken-characters-and-problems-b035

 

Maths

Your class are still focussing on measure this week. The first 2 sets of lessons here are the same as last week – so depending how long you have been isolating, you may have already completed some of them, and therefore you may need to begin part way through, or scroll down to the ‘Revision lessons 2’ section.

 

Measure

Here are some videos and activities for you to try.

Then have a go at the suggestions below. 

 

Here are some measuring activities you can do at home:

You can measure to compare things and see which is longer and which is shorter. If you have a ruler or a measuring tape that's great, but you can also use strips of paper, or something like cubes or building blocks or even toy cars etc. (e.g. the cereal box is 3 toy cars long but the bag of flour is only 2 toy cars long. This means the cereal box is longer than the bag of flour. The bag of flour is shorter.) 

It would be great if you could make a list of things around the house that are smaller than a metre, and a list of things that are bigger than a metre - you might need a grown up to show you roughly how big a meter is, and then estimate. 

 

 

Now try these revision lessons:

 

Maths Revision Lessons 1:
Here are some lessons revising concepts you learned earlier in the year:

Watch the video via the link and then scroll down to the bottom of this page for the worksheet. If you can print them off that’s great, but please don’t worry if you can’t. You can just write the answers on paper or a blank BGfL document. Please also note that the worksheet documents don't always upload in the correct order - make sure you are using the worksheet that matches the video lesson.

  1. Count objects to 100: https://vimeo.com/454750186 (first half of sheet - count objects to 100)
  2. Read and write numbers to 100:  https://vimeo.com/454750427 (second half of sheet – read and write numbers to 100)

History

  1. Aztec Gods
