Learning Tasks – 6th May

Good morning Year 2.

Maths

Today I would like you to practise your sharing number sentences. This is the opposite of what you were doing when you practised your times tables before.

Hopefully from the work this week, you have found that there are lots ways to solve dividing problems. Today’s goal is to become quicker at solving dividing problems mentally.

To do this you could use the techniques you have been using for multiplication, with the number sentence rearranged, or you can use this board game instead. You can play with any number of players. All you need is a regular 6 sided dice.

A blank one if you would like to choose your own number sentences

General

Today I would like you to have a go doing some origami (paper folding). This is a good finger strength building skill. You might want to use these in your animations or just to make for fun. I have included some of the simpler instructions that I could find. If you search ‘origami dinosaur’ you can find many more.

Writing

Another spelling activity today. I would like you to practise another commonly misspelt grapheme, the /ee/ sound.

Test yourself on some of these to work out which grapheme you find tricky (ea, e_e, y, ie, ey). Then choose a dinosaur name (I have listed a few you might want to choose below) and see how many words you can come up with, that use your grapheme, from the letters included.

  • Triceratops
  • Edmontosaurus
  • Eomamenchisaurus
  • Yingshanosaurus
  • Leaellynasaura

If you are finding it tricky to make words for your pattern, try choosing two of the dinosaur names to give you the letters you need.
