Year2- Caterpillars & Butterflies (20.05.20)


Yesterday, I retold the story of ‘Winnie and Wilbur stay at home.’ My sentences were a bit scrambled, but you did a great job at correcting them for me. Today, I would like you to retell the story in your own words. I want you to do a better job than me. Using the pictures below write your own sentences that re-tell the story. If you think you are clever enough, try adding the conjunction ‘and’ to join two sentences together.
e.g. Winnie was doing her spelling and Wilbur had to help her.


Yesterday, you all showed me that you were experts at positional language. Today, I am going to give you an extra challenge… I would like you to use the recent knowledge you gained of 1/2’s 1/4 and 3/4’s to help Ruby choose which ride to go on. Here is some of the vocabulary you should expect to see…. clockwise, anti-clockwise, quarter turn, half turn, full turn.

1. Ruby is trying to decide what ride to go on at the fair. She’d decided on the pirate ship but suddenly changed her mind. She does a quarter turn clockwise. What ride does she choose?

2. Ruby has just gotten off the merry-go-round and decides to turn a half turn clockwise. What ride does she choose now?

3.Ruby is trying to decide what ride to go next. She’d decided on the pirate ship again, but changed her mind again. She does a three quarter turn anti-clockwise. What ride did she decide to go on now?

4. Ruby is looking at the tea-cups and
anticlockwise. She goes on the merry-go-round. What size turn did she make?

If you find this easy, can you try one of your own. See if I can work out which ride you put Ruby on.

Remember to send your work to Y2upload.

    • Hi Khadija! Hope you’re well and staying safe 😊

      Remember clockwise is to the right, anti-clockwise is to the left.
      If you are turning 1/4 clockwise it is 1 turn to the right….

      Give them another go for me please and try the English challenge.
      Also, make sure to complete your work on the other blogs.

    • Good try Khadija but have another go at the sentences. Remember to look at the picture, say the sentence, write it. Don’t forget to extend your two sentences by using the word ‘and’ .

    • I love that you are trying Sumaya… could you have another go at Q1, Q3 and Q4.
      If it helps try and move the your device around so you can see where Ruby is.

      I love your take on the story Ibraheem- Great sentences and use of the ‘and’ conjunction.
