Following on from our lesson this morning, today I would like you to use your Geography skills to create a map that shows both human and physical features of an island.
Your map can be any design you like but it must be an island - remember an island has water all the way around!
Think about which human and physical features you can draw on your island and how you will show this on your map and in your key. Today in our lesson we thought about how symbols are used on maps to show features. Your map will need to use symbols too.
There are some examples of maps below.
It's time to get your air guitar out!
Well done for completing the maths investigation yesterday. We all came to the same answer and worked out that 6 letter names were the most common in Year 2.
Look at these sentences and decide if your tally chart and pictogram can help you to answer them. True or False
Can you write 2 true or false statements about your data?
If you would like some extra work today for your maths - dip into your maths homework book or your busy maths pack.
Today we are going to investigate syllables.
Syllables are the beats of words. Be careful not to confuse this with the phonemes of a word. Phonemes are the smallest unit of sound we can hear in a word and these help us with spelling.
Syllables can also help us with spelling too as we can break down words into their different syllables (beats) and spell out each part.
Watch the video below to explain further! I hope you like it, it made me laugh! There is also a funky song which talks about the number of syllables in different words.
Today your task is to find 1, 2, 3 and 4 syllable words and maybe even think of some 5 syllable words. You might just be able to look around your home and find ideas e.g.
Kitchen = 2 syllables television = 4 syllables
or you might read your reading book and sort the words as you read.
You might decide to make a list, a table, brainstorm the words or write them out and show their syllable parts like my examples above.
Challenge - How many syllables are there in the word;
