Practise your spellings on Spelling Shed.

For the next few weeks we will be focussing on the year 2 Common Exception Words. The expectation is that by the end of year 2 children are able to read and spell these. I have attached a copy of these, and set assignments to on Spelling Shed that will not expire until the end of the year. I have also attached a document that includes a range of strategies for practising spellings, so that you can do some on spelling shed and some by hand.

I would recommend you try writing all of these words over the next week, to check which ones you find most tricky.



15 mins

Read your reading book (or one from Oxford Owl).  Re-read any parts that don’t quite make sense.



30 mins

L.O: To describe.

Today we will be looking at all of the different animals we might find in the New Forest. Draw some into your home learning book and write a sentence to describe them. Are they nocturnal? Do they live in the trees? What do they look like?



1 Hour

L.O: To compare continents

Look through your continent fact files that we have been working on.

I would like you to choose 2 of them and compare them. Use the attached venn diagram to help you compare.

Do they have any similarities?

What are their differences?

You could look them up on google maps too, to see where they are in relation to each other and other continents.
