Use the internet to find out some facts about Sankt Nikolaus and how children in Germany celebrate on 5/6th December. (Who was Sankt Nikolaus? What do children put outside their door on the evening of 5th December in Germany? What do they find in the morning? What is Sankt Nikolaus’s helper called?)
Today we had a go at a grammar, punctuation and spelling assessment. You could revise these concepts by trying these questions from a Year 2 paper:
Today in English we learned the story ‘King Midas and the golden touch’. We watched a clip, put the story main parts in order, then practiced retelling it. Below is the clip for you to watch and the story parts to put in order.
In maths, we carried on looking at column subtraction. You can watch the link below to learn a bit more then try some questions for yourself!
Research the Ancient Greeks homes, food, clothes and jobs. Find out what was similar to our life today and what was different.
Read the passage below from our book ‘Helping Hercules’, then answer the four questions.
Today we explored using magnets, found out about their poles and when magnets attract (pull together) and repel (pull apart). Research magnets and their poles. Try to create a diagram to show when magnets attract and repel.
We started by revisiting different ways to spell the ‘igh’ sound. Can you tell which words are spelled incorrectly? Write the correct spellings.
Then we looked at these homophones. Check you know what they mean and practise them.
Today we went over how to form our capital and lower case letters. In phonics, we were looking at the ‘igh’ sound so we also practised how we join letters which make that sound. Practise your handwriting at home.
In our maths meeting, we tried these questions all about ‘a half’. Try these questions.
