Phonics/SPaG

Use PhonicsPlay.co.uk - to practise the sound cards using 'Flashcards Time Trials'.

Review the /ur/ sound such as 'surf, turf'. Can you make a spider diagram and think of some more. 

There is another way to spell the /ur/ sound. When it follows a 'w'  the 'or' makes an /ur/ sound. 

Read these: world, worse, worth, work, worship, worm, word

Can you spell them? Then add them in a sentence. 

Extension: Add suffixes to create new words ( er, ed, ing)

English 

Watch the video below. 

This video is all about foxes. Today I would like you to create a fact file about foxes. 

You may need to do some research on foxes. There is some information below. 

In your fact file you could include these subheadings:

Appearance

Diet 

Habitat

Behaviour 

Fun Facts

 

Remember to draw pictures to make your fact file exciting. You can send it to Miss Trigg or Mr Patten on the Year 2 email address.

Facts about Foxes

The fox also has many similarities to a cat. They have vertical slit eyes and partially retractable claws. Foxes are excellent tree climbers, and they mark their territory by the scent of urine. They also hunt like a cat. They stalk their prey just like cats. They often play with their prey before they kill it. Foxes hunt mainly at night because they are nocturnal animals. 

Foxes are carnivores, which means they eat meat. Their diet includes rodentsrabbits, insects and small birds. If they live near a farm, they will raid the hen house and steal the chickens. The fox does not live in a pack. It lives and hunts alone. When a group of foxes are together it is called a “skulk.”

Maths 

 We looked at the word 'fraction' yesterday. Today we will be focusing on a different fraction. 

First, I would like you to write the 3x table out on a piece of paper, stop at 36. Start at 0, count 3 more, write your answer down, count 3 more and repeat!

Maths

Today we will be looking at thirds, splitting a group of objects or a number into 3 equal groups. You may want to make the total with objects and then split them into 3 groups.

What is 1/3 of 12?

What is 1/3 of 3?

What is 1/3 of 21?

What is 1/3 of 9?

What is 1/3 of 30?

What is 1/3 of 27?

 

Challenge!

What is 2/3 of 9?

What is 2/3 of 18?

 

TOP TIP: The top number (or first number) tell you how many groups to count. 

Design and Technology 

 

Today we will be focusing on Design and Technology. Today we are going to design our own 'Wacky Racer'

 

You are going to design a car, thinking about the colours, material and style you would like. Once you have designed your 'wacky racer' you need to label it and write a few sentences why you have chosen this particular design. 

You can use the sheet below, or design it on a blank piece of paper.
