English week 11/05/20

This week, as well as doing our spelling and comprehension activities, we will be doing some instruction reading and writing activities based on out topic bees and especially recipes using honey! You can choose to make the recipes after the children have done the activities and we have made sure the ingredients are easy to come by (no flour!) But it is entirely up to you if they are made or not. A video outlining one of the recipes will be posted later on in the week. We hope you enjoy all these English activities this week and support them by watching the "How do bees make honey" videos in the topic section.

Monday 11th May

Please note that spellings for the children who do phonics with Mrs MB and Mrs Evans are in the support activities along with phonics activities for this week.


Spellings for this week are- words ending in tion











Try the Look/ say/ cover/ write activity that goes with this and also the quiz below...





Parents: In year 2, the types of spellings and spelling patterns that children are expected to know continues to increase. As well as further ‘common exception words’ (words that don’t follow the usual rules but are used regularly), there is a whole series of spelling patterns and rules for children to learn. Teachers often find that getting children to learn spellings is one thing, but then getting them to use them in their everyday writing is another. One of the methods which works well is ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write,Check’ – as the title suggests, children are encouraged to look at the word, say it out loud, cover it up,have a go at writing it and then check if it is correct. Having two or three tries means they can correct any errors. The words on this list focus on words that end with ‘tion’. This /shuhn/ sound can be spelled
in several ways (magician, tension) but at this stage children start with the most common spelling.
Now if you have time go onto the BBC bitesize Small Town superheroes game and play the section TRICKY WORD ENDINGS to practise word endings you may have already met in year 2.

Reading Comprehension

Have a look at the powerpoint to learn all about bees and answer the questions below using the powerpoint. You can either print out the answer sheet or answer them on your own paper.

Please note- there is an easier version of this comprehension in support activities under writing.

The Imperative Verbs Song

Listen to this song about imperative verbs... Can you make up some commands of your own to sing in it?

If you have time you can make a list of all the imperative (bossy) verbs you may meet tomorrow in the recipe.  I have started you off with some...





Can you think of any more?

Today we are going to watch a video on how to make Honey joys! Watch carefully and read the instructions as it goes along. After this you can either go to the powerpoint and put it in the correct order or go to the worksheet and sequence the method by cutting and sticking in the right order on paper (if you have a printer) or simply number them in order on paper if you don't,.  Happy watching!

If you have the ingredients you can then have a go at making them! They are really yummy!

Make sure you make them with an adult because the oven is hot.

Honey can be used to sweeten many recipes instead of using sugar as it is much healthier. Today you can read a couple of Smoothie recipes. My recipe contains honey to make it nice and sweet!smiley

Notice how I have used Imperative verbs (bossy verbs) to start each sentence of the method. 

Now using the smoothie sheet write down your own recipe for a smoothie. You can use mine to help you. Remember, you don't have to use the same ingredients as me. Then, when you have finished writing if you have the ingredients you can ask an adult to help you make it or just draw a picture of what it would look like!

We can't wait to see some pictures! 

Please note there is an easier version of the smoothie recipe sheet in support activities (writing)


Have a look at Mrs Evans making a smoothie in the video section!
