Year 2

Thursday 26th March

Good morning Year 2. I'm sure that all of you that have gardens to play in have been enjoying the lovely sunshine over the last two days. I think it's going to get a bit cooler but hopefully the warm sun will be back again soon.

I have given you some maths and English for tomorrow...the English is story writing, but if you have been writing with Jane Consodine and the super sentence stackers you can do that instead. 

If you look at the link below you will see that I have given you a picture with a ferocious looking dinosaur to write a story about. Don't forget you can photograph your work and ask mum or dad to email it to me if you would like to show it off. Perhaps I might even be able to post a good one on here so that your friends can see it too. 

Have a good Thursday,

Thursday's English and maths work

Wednesday 25th March

Hello Year 2,

I hope that you are all well. I' ve been busy all day looking online for things that you can do to keep learning. I hope that you are doing some. I had a go at some of the BBC teach supermovers maths dances but I got rather out of puff. I have suggested to Mr Smith that he learns Mr Pumpernickel's dance so he can do it for us when we are all back at school one day. Have a look at the dance and try to imagine Mr Smith doing it!

Wednesday is always grammar and spelling day in year 2 so your English work is all about using subordinating conjunctions - can you remember them? They are on the worksheet attached. I have also put some handwriting sheets which are also useful to help with your spelling. Don't try to do all the sheets at once. Take your time and do one a day...or even half a day.

In maths  we are moving from addtion to subtraction

Maths tasks for 25th March

 I have looked on Youtube and found

It teaches you about subtraction and will be useful for the next couple of day's work.


New ideas for maths

Before you begin your maths activities why not go on line to BBC teach supermovers...there are lots of maths songs and dances there.

I suggest counting with John Farnworth, number bonds with Martin Dougan and money with Mr Pumpernickel for this week and next.

Recommendations for some online English teaching

Dear Year 2

I have just found something on Youtube called:

Jane Considine – Super sentence Stackers

Every day Jane is going to teach some writing. She seems to be a lovely, friendly lady who will show you how to write really good sentences and give you the opportunity to share your writing with other people.

You are also welcome to send me some of the writing …take a photo and attach it to an email.

For the children in Mrs Wilkinson and Mrs Petrou’s phonics group

Ruth Miskin Training -

There will be phonic lessons each day, teaching  Set 1, Set 2 and Set 3 sounds. Each lesson remains there for 24 hours, but then will disappear.

You definitely don’t need to do the Set 1 sounds and probably not the set 2 sounds, but you might find the set 3 sounds useful to practise.

I haven't included links to these but they are easily found on Youtube if you search for the names

Year 2 Closure Work  March 2020


Home learning booklet 

This is the space where I will be publishing work for each day. Please don't forget to use the work that I sent you after parents evening as this is really useful for reinforcing all that we have covered in Y2 so far. If you don't already have this pack you can get a free login to Twinkl and download it directly from there. Look for Key Stage 1 SATs survival. There are two maths ones, one grammar one and one for reading.

If your child finds the work overly challenging it is fine to access the work for Year 1 (or if they find it too easy they might want to try some Year 3 activities) but it's best to stick to the Year 2 work if you can.

Keep learning and even more importantly, keep strong and healthy.

Mrs Trott
