Spellings:

 

Please continue to work on the Year 2 High Frequency and Common Exception Words. Ask your child about the methods we use in school to help them to learn spellings: boxing up, adding a picture, writing in a sentence etc. 

 

Reading:

 

Please continue to listen to your child read their school reading book or any other books that you may have at home. You can also use the Oxford Owl website to find books to read in the Free eBook Library section.

 

Newsround has a good variety of news articles that the children enjoy reading, but please check their suitability first.

Start reading the text and then try and answer the questions. Don't forget to use the text to help you.

 

Writing

This week you could try any of the following ideas:

  • Imagine you have celebrated VE Day and write a diary entry describing the day. Use your senses to help you record your thoughts on an unforgettable day.
  • Come up with a list of items that you might need for your VE Day celebration.
  • Find out about rationing and what food was available at that time. Create a poster to show the different foods and what prices they were.

Art and DT

Why not make some bunting for your celebration...see if you can rope in other family members at home to help you!

Design and create your own VE Day banner to really show of your celebration. Make sure it is bright and bold.

Have a go at designing your own medal. You might even want to continue and make it. You could use clay, plasticine, salt dough or even cardboard. See what you can come up with.
