This week we have focused on counting 2s, 5s and 10s fluently and Year 2s are learning to count in 3s., including forward and backwards. Here are the White Rose Home Learning Videos https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/week-4/
The worksheets are below.
More important than completing the worksheets are checking the children can actually count in 2s by themself (2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24), 5s and 10s.
Can they count in 10s from any number? Eg. 3, 13, 23, 33, 43,53,This resource will help https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/arrowCards/ - you can show them adding ten, how the ones don't change but the tens do.
We are focusing on reading lots of reports about animals, ready to write a report about animals in the next few weeks.

Writing is a key focus in terms of both handwriting, and being able to use their phonics to sound out words and spell them. Whilst at home, please aim to write at least one sentence a day about something you have done that day (you can also draw a picture). Below are some Phase 5 sentences you can read out loud to children and ask them to use their phonics to write.
First we ask them to count how many words are in the sentence they have heard. Then we remind them to start with a capital letter and sound out the first word if they need to. We remind them to use finger spaces and a full stop at the end. We let them have a go at writing the sentence on their own first of all, and then support them to rewrite it correctly using their phonics if there are any mistakes.
Science Topic: Animals including humans
I am trying not to give too many worksheets as I know not everyone has access to a printer
Below are some suggested learning activities under the learning objective. The most important thing is that children understand the learning rather than the work they do
- I can name different animals.
Draw different animals and label them. Challenge: can you draw some animals from the UK, some animals from Africa, some animals for Australia etc.
- I can give some examples of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish and birds.
Make a table showing the 5 animal groups (or a page per group) and draw some animals that fit into each category underneath.
- I can sort animals into omnivores, herbivores and carnivores
- I can label different parts of the body.
Draw a a picture of yourself and label different body parts (see sheet below)
- I know what the 5 senses are and what body parts are involved.
Draw something you can see, hear, smell, touch,and taste.
- I know animals need food, shelter and water to survive.
Can you draw animals with the things they need to survive? (e.g., a dog in a kennel with food and water, I lion under a tree (For shelter) near some water and antelope (food). Can you label the food, shelter and water?
