Year 2 – Monday’s Home Learning

Year 2 Home learning for Monday 29th June – Sports theme

Subject focus What we need to learn: How we might learn it:
English  Reading To use my reading skills to solve problems and answer questions. This week we will have a look at a mystery we need to solve! Each day you will get a clue and by Thursday you will have solved the mystery! The full PDF is also attached so Mums and Dads can read through the whole document to help you, but each day we will attach that day’s clue to the planning sheet. Today you need to read the problem/story starter below and the first clue to find out something about the person who has taken the missing medal.
Writing To write sentences which include clauses.

This week is all about ‘Sport’. 

Today we would like you to tell us about your favourite sport. It could be a sport that you take part in or one that you enjoy watching. 

  1. Draw a picture which links to that sport.
  2. Write some sentences to tell us what your favourite sport is and why it is your favourite. You will need to use clauses to make your sentences longer such as ‘because’.
Maths To use and apply knowledge of number and logic. Below you will find some Maths practice questions. Some are calculations (sums), others are problems to solve. Do the ones you are confident with first, leave the harder ones until last. Don’t forget to use strategies like column method, blank number line, jottings, arrays, drawing Dienes or mental knowledge. Check your work. Always ask yourself – Does my answer make sense?
Other:  To understand similarities and differences between the UK and another country.

This year 2020, was meant to be an Olympic year. Sadly the Olympics have been postponed until 2021. However, we are still going to find out some things about the Olympic host city (Tokyo) and country (Japan).

A PowerPoint file should have been emailed to a grown up to accompany this week’s learning. A link is also available on the school website (the file is called All about Japan).

Have a look through the information. There are some questions below. Show your teachers what you have found out about Japan.

Remember to email your child’s class teacher to let them know how you’ve got on. We’d love to see examples of what you’ve been up to.
