LO: I am learning to retell a traditional tale.
Today's English might take you a little longer than normal but please do it over today and tomorrow if you need more time . Remember to use your best handwriting in your story book and to take your time remembering to use capital letters, full stops, your word mats you have created, include adjectives and different sentence starters and even illustrations throughout the book on the pages to go with your writing.
Have fun creating your story books!
Please show us your books when you have finished creating them
LO: I am learning to identify British birds.
Following on from last week’s birdwatch, today we are going to be learning to identify a variety of British birds using your observational skills looking closely at their physical characteristics (size, colour, beak shape, feathers, claws etc).
Using the internet and books as a research tool, identify the following birds. Draw the following birds and label their names along with the characteristics that helped you identify it.
Websites such as https://www.birdspot.co.uk/bird-identification should be quite useful when identifying the birds.
Extension: As an extra challenge afterwards, you could classify these birds in any way you like. They could be sorted into groups based on their size, colour, diet, habitat or your own idea.

04.02.21 - Grammar (Year 2)
LO: I am learning to change words from singular to plural.
There is another rule that can help us change words from singular (one) to plural (more than one).
If a word ends in a f or fe then we need to take this off and add -ves.
So knife turns into knives.
Elf turns into elves.
Have a go at changing these words from singular to plural and try putting them in a sentence.
There are always words that don't fit into the rules! For example chiefs would just add an -s to be chiefs. If a word ends in ff we usually just add an -s. So cliff would be cliffs.
