Friday 22nd May
Complete the ‘Friday Challenge’ below. The most suitable questions for Year 2 are 1, 2 & 3. But why don’t you work with your family on the rest of the problems?
If you can’t print out the sheet, you should be able to answer all questions in your workbooks.
Over the next week our work will be based around the poem ‘The Sound Collector’. Activities will involve comprehension, skills teaching and practise, culminating in writing some stanzas of your own.
Here is the link to the text:
Watch the video of Roger McGough performing his poem, ‘The Sound Collector’.
Today, we would like you to perform your version on the poem. To do this, you could: read your poem aloud like Roger McGough, create actions for your poem while someone else reads it, memorise your poem and recite it.
Don’t forget to send your performances to us, as we would love to see them!
Watch the short video below explaining the different sounds that the ‘-ed’ endings make.
Now, play the sorting game below to practise recognising -ed endings.
It’s PE Friday! Have a go and the challenge cards below. Also, don’t forget that there are lots of others things that you can do to stay fit and healthy. You could:
create your own obstacle course
go for a nature walk

Have a lovely half-term!
