Week 2 - 30th March 2020
For Literacy this week, please write a letter to an elderly relative or neighbour who is currently at home during this time. You might want to ask them questions about how they are and what they are doing and provide details about certain activities you have been doing.
If you do not know/ have an elderly relative or neighbour, please write your letter to my elderly neighbour Peter. He is in isolation right now and feeling a bit lonely, so I know that your letters will brighten his day immensely. You may take a picture of your letter and send this to me, which I will then print off and give to my neighbour.
Your letter should include:
Full stops and Capital letters.
Commas to separate items in a list.
Time connectives: First, Next, After that.
CHALLENGE: include co-ordinating conjunctions: but, and, or, so.
I have attached a plan of how you should structure your letter day by day.
Additional note to parents:
Due to the nature of virtual learning, it is not necessary for you to send Maths & Literacy work back to be me to be marked. If you wish to send an email at the end of the week summarising how your child coped with the assigned work, then please feel free to do so.
Any further queries, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Best wishes and I hope you are all keeping safe and sane (parents).
For English this week, you will need to write a dairy entry for each day of the week (Monday – Friday). This might be best written at the end of your day as an after-dinner activity, so that you can reflect on what you have achieved that day.
Your diary entry should include:
Time connectives, such as: meanwhile, first, last, next, then, finally, eventually, last evening, after a while, soon, afterwards
Written in the past tense: use of ‘ed’ suffix endings to show past tense.
Adverbs to describe your verbs. Eg. Slowly, quickly, hurriedly, excitedly, happily.
Year 2 common exception words to be spelt correctly (please use your Year 2 common exception word mat).
Full stops and Capital letters!
CHALLENGE: Use commas to separate items in a list.
I have attached an example of what your diary entry could look like.
I look forward to reading these entries and see what exciting projects and activities you have got up to!
Your spellings are in the activity column!
