Good morning Year 2, I hope you are all ok and looking after yourselves!
You are working so incredibly hard with your tasks, I am very impressed with you. Your maths knowledge is brilliant and today we will be building on our understanding of pictograms by using our 2, 5 and 10 times tables to solve questions! In English, we are looking at poetry and I would like you to find different examples of vocabulary from the volcano poem I have written for you. Finally, for History, you will be exploring Samuel Pepys' diary and the different sources that can help tell us about the Great Fire! I hope you have a brilliant day and enjoy your lessons.
Please also find time to log onto www.getepic.com/students today and read a book! I am monitoring your reading online every day and loving the variety of books you are choosing to read! I will be giving out reading awards for the children who are reading regularly
Below are your lessons for today. Remember to email your work to Year2_Home@st-john.lancs.sch.uk or put it on our school blog.

Putting our times tables into practice using pictograms! I think you will enjoy this lesson. Please watch the learn screen below.
Then, I would like you to answer the questions from the worksheets in your red book. If you wish to print them, that is also fine.
L.O. To identify the features of a poem.
Please read through the slides below, which explain and give examples of the features we will be finding in the volcano poem today. We will be looking for adjectives, verbs, alliteration, onomatopoeia and adverbs!
I would now like you to read the poem below which I have written to describe a volcano erupting! It has adjectives, verbs, alliteration, onomatopoeia and adverbs in it.
In your writing book, please put your date and L.O. Then, I would like you to write down examples of the vocabulary that you can find in the poem like a list under the following subheadings. P.S. Adverbs are a challenge, if you would like to have a go at finding them, that would be super! Please present your work like this:
violent, powerful, ……..
violent volcano, …..
At the end of this week, we will be writing our very own Great Fire of London poem, so keep these vocabulary choices in mind!
L.O. Finding out about Samuel Pepys and his diary.
