Good morning Year 2! We hope you are all well. We have really been enjoying reading all of your emails and seeing all of your hard work at home - you are doing a fantastic job!

Here is your work for today.

 

Reading

Watch the video again of our story. Here are a list of words that you might not know the meaning of from the story:

  • perched
  • tended
  • brazen
  • baffled
  • concocting
  • devoured
  • industrious

 

Use a dictionary or type ‘Google dictionary’ and then find out what these words mean. Write the word down and then what it means. Here is an example:

Perched - sit on the edge of something

 

English

Now choose 4 of the words you found the meanings of and write four sentences using them. Think about what they mean and make sure your sentences make sense.

For example:

I was baffled when I was doing my new Maths work.

I devoured my lunch because I was very hungry and it was delicious!

Here are some ideas to help you think about what your boat could look like: 

When you have finished, ask yourself these questions:

Did it turn out how you wanted?

What are you happy with?

What would you improve?

 

We would love to see your boats! Email your photos to year2teacher@girlingtonprimary.co.uk
