Yesterday you wrote a character description for one of the characters from Jack and the Beanstalk. Today we are going to edit and improve our descriptions.
I would like you to start today by reading carefully what you wrote yesterday. While you read it carefully, I would like you to think about the following things:
1. Have you remembered a full stop at the end of each sentence?
2. Have you remembered a capital letter at the beginning of each new sentence?
3. Have you used your tricky word mat and sound mat to help you spell words correctly?
4. Have you used lots of adjectives to describe?
5. Year 2s, I would also like you to have a go at using a simile. Watch my video from yesterday again to remind you what a simile is
Spend some time editing your writing. You might have to read it through two or three times! Remember you can use a green or another coloured pen to edit. Now see if you can add one or two more sentences. You could also draw a picture of your character in the box at the bottom of the page.
Today you are moving on to learning how to sequence events in chronological order. This means putting events from your daily routine in the order in which they happen. For example: First I get out of bed. Then I eat my breakfast. Next I brush my teeth. These events from my daily routine are in chronological order.
Click on the link below for today's lesson which includes a quiz, a video and a task. I have downloaded the task and you can find it below.
Today we will be thinking about telling and showing the time quarter past the hour. Click on the link below for your lesson. Watch the video then complete the activity. I have downloaded the activity and you can find it below. For an extra challenge see the extra activities below.
Yesterday you learnt that the letters 'tch' can make a 'ch' sound as in the word 'kitchen'. Today we are going to look at the same sound. Click on the phoneme spotter story below. I would like you to read it through (you will need an adult to help you) and underline or highlight the words with 'tch' in them. The answers are on the second page. Did you find them all?
Log onto our Class 2 Google Classroom at 2pm for a story with Mrs Sothcott. There is a link to the Google login page on our main Class 2 webpage. When you log in, make sure you click on 'Class 2' rather than your coloured reading group. Please join with your microphones turned off. I am looking forward to seeing you all then!
Spend at at least 15 minutes reading. You could log onto Bug Club and read one of your books on there or read one of your books from home.
