St Peter's Catholic Primary School

Writing - Y2 w/c 2nd June

Every day you should do some writing work for about 
20 minutes. 

Please try to spend 5 minutes at the beginning of each writing session this week practising your spelling of these 5 Year 2 common exception words. 

This week’s words

  • because
  • beautiful
  • door
  • floor
  • poor

· Strategies you can use:

- Make a spelling pyramid for each word.

- Look, say, cover, write, check.

- Practise writing the words in sentences.

On Friday please ask a grown up to spend 5 minutes testing you on your words from the week. When your grown-up is testing you they should say the word in a sentence and then on its own. You then write your spelling word down. We would love to know how you get on!

 

Tuesday - SPaG
LO: To use the suffix –ly to turn adjectives into adverbs.

This week you are going to re-cap how to use the suffix –ly to turn an adjective into an adverb. 

  • Adverbs are used to give more detail about a verb.
  • ·A verb is a doing (action) word.
  • EXAMPLE: The wind blew (verb) wildly (adverb). Which is the verb and which is the adverb in this sentence? The boy ran quickly

  2. Then have a go at activities 1 and 2 which are linked below the video.
  3. Whilst completing the activities create a word-bank of –ly adverbs on a piece of paper or in your blue exercise book. Can you think of any others? You will be using this word bank to support your writing tomorrow.

 

Wednesday- Creative Writing

(Choose one of the following activities.)

·Using adverbs from the word bank you created yesterday, write a set of rules for your home school. For example:

3. If you wrote a poem or a story setting description- have you included interesting adjectives and conjunctions? If you haven’t can you add some? If you have can you think of an even better adjective to use?
