Hello everyone in Class 2...!
Week 2 of Home Learning will be slightly different to last week but it should still be easy to follow.
Each day, I will continue to set English and Maths activities for you to work through. In addition, all of the teachers will be posting a Topic Grid this week, for you to work from. The Topic Grid is the same for each class, so you can choose which activities you would like to complete. There will be instructions on the grid. This is to try to make it as easy as possible for you and your families to work together on the Home Learning tasks and I know you have enjoyed working in this way when I have made grids for Homework during our previous topics.
So, every day you will have an English and Maths task to complete, then it's up to you what you would like to work on from the grid.
I am looking forward to seeing some of the work that you produce.

Thank you for all of the lovely photographs and messages. You have been doing some super work and I am very proud of you all!
To finish off the second week of Home Learning, please complete your Easter work from yesterday.
Maths Activities are below. Have a go at the Problem of the Day - use this title in your book if that's how you are working. There are two levels of difficulty. Then work throught the Spring Code Breaker. You can use this title too if you are working in your Maths book. The Year 3 work can be found on page 9 of the Year 3 Easter Maths Booklet. The Year 4 work is also on page 9 of the Year 4 Easter Maths Booklet. If you would like to, you can then complete all or some of this booklet during the weekend and the Easter break.
We will be posting an optional Easter Learning project at the weekend to keep you busy during the next two weeks.

I am really loving looking at the wonderful pictures that you are sending of all of the activities you have been working on. You are all doing amazing work. Please keep them coming!
I have started to put together some recommendations from people in our class. I thought it would be easiest if I posted these on our main Home Learning Class 2 Space so have a look there for some brilliant ideas. Don't forget to let me know if you would like me to add yours by emailing Mrs Machell at email@example.com and she will forward them to me.'
For Maths tomorrow I have uploaded a photograph of Target Your Maths. Write the short date and the title in your Maths book. Your title is 'Target Your Maths - Addition and Subtraction Practice'. Choose either the Year 3 or Year 4 work, then select your level of challenge, either A (easiest), B (medium) or C (trickiest).
For English, over the next two days, I would like you to reflect on the Easter story and think about what Easter means to different groups of people. You could consider: What is the Christian meaning of Easter? What does Easter mean to you? How is Easter celebrated around the world? How is Easter celebrated in your house? Or you could answer a question of your own. You could then create a powerpoint or a non-chronological report or a poem or a piece of art/collage, make a leaflet or write and perform a rap. You can make it as easy or as difficult or as much fun as you like. Don't forget that you can send me pictures or videos of your work.

Wow! We are almost half way through the second week of Home Learning. In some ways it has gone really quickly but in other ways it feels like quite a while since we were all together. Thank you to those of you who have sent me pictures of what you have been doing. It's lovely to see them and they really do make me smile.
I wonder what else you have been doing to keep active? I have been on lots of walks and cycle rides (just one each day though!) with my family and I have been trying to get outside in the fresh air as much as possible. I know lots of children have been taking part in PE online such as with Joe Wicks or Max Whitlock, or listening to stories with authors like David Walliams and Oliver Jeffers. These are great activities to get involved with and I would love to know what else you have been doing and would recommend. I could post your ideas on our Class 2 space so that others can try them out. Let me know your favourites by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are your English and Maths Activities for Wednesday.
For English, I thought we could all practise using inverted commas, since this is one of the things that lots of us often find a bit more tricky. I have uploaded a Powerpoint for you to watch first which will help you to remember where to put all of the extra punctuation when marking speech with inverted commas. After you have watched the Powerpoint, go to either the Year 3 Easter Activity Booklet or the Year 4 Easter Activity Booklet, depending on which one you are working on, and complete 'Direct Speech Disaster'. Don't forget to rewrite each sentence in full, using correct punctuation. You will find this on page 9 of the Year 3 Booklet and page 10 of the Year 4 Booklet. If you would like some more practice with this, I have uploaded some 'Spot the Missing Speech' activity sheets which you could have a go at. You can use the title of the page to write in your English book.
For Maths, play one round of Times Tables Rock Stars then have a go at one of the Easter Maths Word Problems Activity Sheets. There are three different challenge levels: the one star sheet is the easiest and the three star sheet is the hardest. Write the short date in your Maths books and your title will be 'Problem Solving'.
Tuesday 31st March 2020
I hope you have all enjoyed making a start on some of the activities from the Topic grid. I am looking forward to seeing some of your finished creations.
Here are your English and Maths tasks for Tuesday...
For English, follow the instructions on the English Activities sheet. As I have said in the instructions, I have also added some extra, optional activities in case you would like to complete these. I have uploaded an easier and a trickier version of the Easter anagrams so that you can choose which one you would like to have a go at. If you decide to work through the 'Correct the Spellings' activity, you can choose whichever page you like but I'm sure just one will be plenty. Remember, these are extras....
For Maths, I have uploaded two Spring themed Activity Booklets. If you are working on the Year 3 booklet, please complete page 4, 'I Spy and Calculate'. If you are working on the Year 4 booklet, please also complete 'I Spy and Calculate', but you will find this on page 5.
I know that not everyone has access to a printer but if you do, you might like to have a go at the 'Colour by Calculations' (Year 3) or 'Colour by Roman Numerals' (Year 4) pages.
Monday 30th March 2020
Here are your English and Maths tasks for Monday 30th March.
For English, I have set Reading Comprehension based on the Easter story. There are three different levels of difficulty. You only need to choose one of the activities, depending on how much challenge you would like. Remember the long date and the title - Easter Story Reading Comprehension. Read the text carefully, then work your way through the questions. You might find it helpful to underline key words, phrases or information in the text as you go along. Remember to answer the questions in full sentences, using a capital letter and full stop, unless the question asks you to do something different. For example, if the questions says, 'Find and copy one word...', make sure you just copy the one word that you need. You should all be able to do this activity quite easily as we do these every week at school.
For Maths, please complete the first two pages of either the Year 3 or Year 4 Home Learning packs. Don’t forget to write the short date and the title. Year 3 title - Place Value. Year 4 title - Addition of 4-digit numbers.
You can always go on Times Tables Rock Stars or go to the Home Learning links page if you want something else to do afterwards.
