Task 1 Riddles
Today we are going to be reading some riddles. A riddle is a set of clues that you use to work out an answer. Our riddles are all about animals. Read through the riddles and solve them. Discuss with a grown up how you worked out the answer.
Today is your turn to write your own animal riddles. Think about how you can describe the animal without making it too easy. Use what you have learnt about habitats to help you with your clues.
Today we are going to use the conjunction but in our writing. You are going to make a comparison in your riddle like this; I move faster than a snail but slower than a cat. I have more than two legs but less than five. Also think about how we can make our riddles more detailed by using amazing adjectives.

Please read the book animal magic and then complete the tasks after you have read the book. Write down some of the interesting facts you found out about the animals in the book.
Animals live in habitats all around the world. Can you label the map of the world locating the seven continents (Use the song we have learnt to help you do this) which of these are hot or cold? Can you add some animals to each continent? You could draw them on or write the animal’s name. Can you draw the equator onto the map? Write a sentence describing the weather in each of the continents that you have placed the animals in.
If you do not have a printer then you can draw the continents and animals onto a sheet of paper.
There are 2 options for Y2 Maths this week. If you have computer or tablet access, you can use the Maths No Problem website. If you are working from a phone, please use the Multiplication & Division pack and write down the calculations.
