Hello Yellows,

Another week of learning is here. What can you do today to start the week?

1. Have you seen episode one of Through the Dragon’s Eye?

Friday 5th June: Y2 Merits UPDATED

You’ll find the video in this blog post. I will be sharing all ten episodes with you across the term. Mr Morgan and Jenny watched this as a child when they were at primary school! Jenny has sent you a message, make sure you REPLY to her!

2. Purple Mash

Another week of activities have been chosen for you. Login and click ‘2Dos’ to find out what has been set. To login, use your personal MyMaths details. They are the same! You will find the 2nd chapter of our fiction story, along with a quick questions quiz and conjunctions quiz. There is an art task about rock pools, and a PSHCE task where you need to write three wishes for the world today.

3. MyMaths

By the end of Year 2, you need to know your 2x tables, 5x tables and 10x tables. You also need to know the inverse division facts. This week you’ll find questions on the 2x tables and the 10x tables. You need to complete both, scoring over 70% in both, to win two merits.

4. Non-Fiction

Of course you can do MyMaths and Purple Mash later in the week if you’d like. Your task for today is to answer questions from non-fiction. Today’s non-fiction is a fact-file about beaches in the UK. Don’t copy the answers on Page 4! There is text on Pages 1 and 2, and a question sheet on Page 3. To change the page, click on the arrows at the bottom left of the sheet.

First of all, I want you to read what Jenny has written on the blog post from Friday 5th June: Y2 Merits Updated!

I wonder who will win the most merits this week? Will it be someone surprising?

You can win five merits over the week for making comments or replies on the website. On this blog post, I want you to choose your favourite word from the non-fiction text and explain why it is your favourite word from the text. I’ve done an example, scroll below!

• Mr Morgan says:

My favourite word is cleanest. I’ve chosen this word because it makes me cheerful to hear that beaches in the UK are some of the most clean in the world. Beaches are beautiful places and should look unspoilt.

• Vihansa says:

Good morning Mr Morgan, Today is the the ‘World Ocean day’.

• Mr Morgan says:

I didn’t know this! It’s important we keep the ocean clean too in order to look after the habitat for the living things that survive there.

• Vihansa says:

My favourite word is beach, because I love to play in the beach. I can wait to go to Sri Lanka and have fun in the beach.

• Mr Morgan says:

I bet the beaches in Sri Lanka are mesmeric!

(You might have to google that word)

• Vihansa says:

The meaning of the word ‘mesmeric’ is you give full attention to something and you can’t think of anything else.

• Dila says:

Hi Mr Morgan,
My favourite word is swimming because I enjoy swimming while I’m on holiday.

• Saule says:

Hello Mr Morgan,
My favourite word from the text is popular. I’ve chosen this word because in the UK are many popular beautiful beaches.

• Mr Morgan says:

It’s a word that has been in our word pot all year!

• Yi-Xuan says:

My favourite word is beach because I like to go to the beach in the summer holidays to have fun.

• Mr Morgan says:

Beaches are extremely fun places. I don’t know about you, but I like sandy beaches much better than any other types of beaches.

Hi Mr Morgan,
My favourite word is holiday. I love a good holiday!???

• Mr Morgan says:

We all love holidays! My favourite holiday when I was a child was in Canada.

• Albino says:

My favorite word is the beach, I look forward to summer every year. I’m crazy about playing on sandy beaches.

• Mr Morgan says:

I go crazy as well when the sand is nice! I will try to email you something special to do.

• Safiyyah says:

My favourite word is sand. I’ve chosen this word because you can make wonderful sandcastles.

• Mr Morgan says:

I wonder what the largest sandcastle ever built measured?

• Hi.
My favourite word is rock.
I like to pick up rocks, stones when I am going to the beach.
They all got funny shapes and colours.
The word rock sound solid.
Thank you
