Year 2 Friday 15th May 2020

To create your own quiz 
Think about your favourite film or story. Create a quiz for somebody else to answer. You may choose to just do it on a chapter or small section of the book/ film or you may choose to do it for the whole book/ film. Write out the questions for somebody to answer. 

Bronze- 5 questions
Silver- 8 questions
Gold- 10 questions 

Friday's Maths consist of our online Learn its and Clic tests, however I will be adding paper versions onto the Y2 shared folder on HWB instead
Clic tests- the children should have no more than 10-15 minutes maximum to complete these. They can do workings out if need be on the sheet or on a separate sheet. Just a reminder- question 1 is for them to partition the number- so what is the value of each? e.g 36- 3=30 6=6. A lot of the children assume it is halving the number because of the way it is laid out! 
Learn its- these are timed at 30 seconds. The children are used to this so please ensure it is only 30 seconds! The learn its are to develop their quick recall and the sums given are the number facts that the children should be confident with to answer rapidly. You may decide to give your child 1 minute and see how many they can complete as there are new levels on there. 
SAFE- the children haven't yet completed these but they involve other maths covered in school aside from basic number. The children have covered these areas so should be able to answer some. Again I would say no more than 10-15 minutes.  I would now try to reduce this time to 5-10 minutes 

Bronze- Clic 1/ Learn its 1 / SAFE 1
Silver- Clic 2/ Learn its 2/ SAFE 2 
Gold- Clic 3/ Learn its 3/ SAFE 3 

You are of course welcome to complete all of these challenges if you wish! 

Below are your new spellings to practice throughout the week. Your child knows which colour they are. Remember to get tested before your new words again next Friday. When you practise your spellings, use what you know from school-

Look, say, cover, write, check
Spellamadoodle- draw a squiggly line and write each of your spellings along the line
Pyramids- build a pyramid starting with the first letter, adding a letter each time e.g. then
Sentences- write sentences including your spelling word

Remember if you aren't sure what the word means- use a dictionary to help you 
I have also added onto the Y2 shared folder on HWB, the list of High Frequency words that the children should be familiar with, or increasingly familiar with for reading and spelling. This is something you should also look at throughout this time and even add in to the spelling lists if you wish. I have also added the Y3/4 high frequency words list to the folder, it is not expected that your child can read and write every one of these words, but if they are mostly confident with the Y2 ones then please move onto this list. 

Complete some of the Joe Wickes daily lessons. You may decide to compete 2 of them and also do some yoga/ meditation. Once you have completed your workout, have a go at creating your own and getting a family member to complete it with you. You may decide to carry out the workouts you created before. Alternatively, you could create an obstacle course for someone to complete- healthy and safety approved of course!!
