Today, as you have been used to doing, you will first need to visit the White Rose website for the video. The White Rose website link below will take you to the correct page for Year 2.
Watch the video slides – pause and rewind as you need to. Then, answer the questions on the activity sheets in your exercise book. The answers are there for you to check, too.
Previously, you watched a video about 'The Magic Faraway Tree' and it spoke about different lands at the top of the tree.
Today, you will create and describe a new land. You could use the senses to help you.
You will be completing this work on Purple Mash today so you will need to log in and find your 2do 'picture and text'.
You will need to include adjectives and expanded noun phrases in your sentences to describe your new land. Don't forget capital letters and full stops. Remember commas between adjectives too. Can you include any conjunctions?
Draw a picture of your land by clicking in the picture box and then the drawing tools will appear on the left.
As we’re all finding ourselves having to use computers and type a lot more, I thought it might help if we took a typing lesson this week.
Purple Mash has lots of activities which help us to learn to type and hopefully it will help you to become a little quicker too.
Go to your Purple Mash home page.
Then, follow the steps below.
Home, Top and Bottom Row Keys
I have put pictures below of what you should see on your screen as you follow the steps above.
Today, we’re starting with the ‘Home Row Keys’ (middle row letters).
There are three activities, ending in a ‘beat the clock’ game.
I will only set the 2do for the final game, but by practising each of these activities first, you’ll get better much quicker and begin to learn how to type properly.
You are able to alter the time to more or less minutes - it depends how you get on. Also, you might want to do some of the activities just the once, others more times. Can you beat your time? I know I kept wanting to beat mine!
Have fun learning to type!
