Year 2 Monday 18 May 2020

To understand and use homophones. 
What is a homophone? Using the BBC Bitesize daily lesson here work through the activities and examples. You may choose to make a list of the different types of homophones first. Alternatively you may wait and see if your child can find them from Activity 1 first. 
I have also put a powerpoint and some activities on the Year 2 shared folder on HWB if you wish to complete these instead or as well as. The activities are-
two, too, to
where, wear, we're
I have also uploaded a mini spelling test activity where you read a sentence out with the word in- tell your child the word you want them to spell and they have to try to spell the correct version of the homophone. e.g. sun- the sun was shining- they should spell sun correctly. Then do the same with son- the man had a son- they should aim to spell this version of son correctly. 
To use written methods to subtract 
Recap the number line method where you count up from the smallest number to the biggest. Subtraction is often the most confusing method to teach out of addition and subtraction. If your child is more confident and shows a better understanding of the column method- traditional way then that's fine. Choose your own sums to practice with as some of you may be confident to try hundreds. You may also decide to try using word problems. I would especially encourage word problems for those who normally complete gold activities. Even the silver challenge can solve some word problems. For bronze I would stick to smaller numbers with only a small amount of jumps.  On the Year 2 shared folder on HWB are some examples of the number line and column method to help.

To learn about Rosa Parks
This can be accessed here I know it is coming away slightly from our nature topic but it is also important that the children learn about and know about the important people in History. Complete the activities on The BBC page, including asking questions about the past, seeing if you can answer them and also putting events in order. You may also wish to do something similar to your Martin Luther King work in terms of presenting your findings- a poem, a fact file, an animation, a video, an information page, a powerpoint etc.
