Monday’s Learning (1st March)

We Got This Teamwork GIF by GIPHY Cares

Here we go Year 2! We are nearly there.

World Book Day (Thursday 4th March)

Just to let you know It is World Book Day On Thursday (4th March). As we are unable to be in school we would love for you to still have the same fun. Come dressed as your favourite book character for our zoom meeting so we can have a character parade and join in with our book quiz. Also take a look at our main page and take part in our Masked Reader competition. Watch the video and see if you can guess who is reading their book behind a mask. Make a list of who you think they all are and post it on seesaw. The person/people with the most correct guesses will win a prize! Remember to post your list by Wednesday this week though.

Todays learning


Today we are going to be looking at all the different graphemes for the ‘or’ sound. There are many different ways to represent this grapheme but some are more common than others. If you want a reminder of how to pronounce this grapheme watch the video below.


We are continuing with division today. You will need to make equal groups by sharing (dividing). Remember this is just the opposite to the multiplication we have been doing. Instead of finding out how many you have altogether you already know how many you have altogether and how many groups you have. Your job is to find out how many are in each group instead by sharing equally. The video below can give you further support.


This week we are going to be looking at and writing our own minibeast poems. Today we would like you to read different minibeast poems. Once you have read them we would like you to become a bug poem detective! We would like you to find and list all the different minibeast in the poems. Once you have found all of these we would like you to detect as many adjectives (describing words), verbs (action words) and adverbs (describing action) as you can. I wonder how many you can find? Happy hunting everyone.


Continuing with our topic of Wriggle and Crawl we are going to be looking at microhabitats today. We would like you to tell us what a microhabitat is and what type of living things use these as their homes. Once you have discovered this see if you can find two different microhabitats where you live. You might look in your garden, along the road you live in, in the park are maybe you could go for a walk with your family and find them along the way. Once you have found two different microhabitats use the enquiry sheet to draw and label them. Have fun hunting out those habitats!

Friday’s Learning (26th February).

Well we have made it to the end of another week for home learning. Well done Year 2 and thank you to your families for their continued support. One Week to go!

Spelling: We are continuing to look at the spelling pattern ‘c’ that makes the ‘s’ sound when it comes before ‘i, e and y’. Today we would like your help again. It seems I have got in a muddle and need help following this spelling pattern. Can you find the correct spelling for each word and then either write them on your own paper or colour the square that the correct spelling is in. Then we would like you to ask an adult to read out loud some sentences for you while you write them (no peeping). Remember you need to think about using this weeks spelling pattern correctly as well as including capital letters and full stops. You can then read the sentences yourself and correct any mistakes if need.

Mathematics: Today we are moving on to division. Division is the same as sharing into equal groups. There are lots of questions with pictures asking you to share them into equal groups. You might want to use your own counters such as pasta, toys, beads etc to help you work out each question and checked you have shared them equally. You can watch the video below for further support.

English: Today we would like you to finish re-writing the story of Th Very Hungry Caterpillar. Use the planning sheet to help you first. We are looking at using improved adjectives , verbs and adverbs again today. The video below shows you how to plan and share ideas for vocabulary choices, and then how to use the plan for your writing. Remember your planning sheet has each section you are improving included to also help.

Computing: We are looking at Algorithms today. An algorithm is just like giving instructions to make something work. You use algorithms all the time when you bake or follow instructions for games etc. In computing algorithms are used to make (give instructions) your games work and characters move around. We would like you to think of instructions (an algorithm) to direct someone in your family from one place in a room to another. EG from the fridge to the oven or from the backdoor to your shed. It is up to you where you direct your family member but remember they can only move when you tell them and they can only follow your direct instructions. A top tip- you might want to walk through your instructions first to check they work.

Thursday’s Learning (25th February)

Thursday GIF by Mypenleaks

Hello everyone. Fantastic work again yesterday, we really are so very proud of you all.

Here is Thursday’s Learning:

Spellings: Today we are looking at the spelling pattern ‘c’ that makes the ‘s’ sound when it comes before e, i, and y. We would like you to write these words out, match them to the pictures and then challenge yourselves to use as many as possible in sentences.

Mathematics: Today you are going to apply your 10 times table knowledge to help you answer questions. The questions are very similar to Tuesday and Wednesday’s work. You have some pictures to help your represent your multiplication equations including a bar model. The part with the 10’s in are the groups and the long bar at the top shows how much altogether. You also have some word problems to solve so remember work out what it is asking you to do from the information given to you ( it will be linked to the 10 times tables). You can watch the video below to support you further.

English: We are going to carry on re-writing the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. Plan your ideas first and then follow the story format to help you write your sentences. So today you will be using the days of the week from the story to start each sentences. Choose which fruit and food you would like the Very Hungry Caterpillar to munch on and then add them into your sentences. If you need support with this watch the video below to help with your planning and writing.

PSHE: Today we are looking at how we can stay healthy. We have already looked at what we can do to keep healthy but Jigsaw Joe our PSHE friend is have trouble keeping healthy. You task today is to see if you can help Jigsaw Joe be motivated to keep healthy!

Wednesday’s Learning (25th February).

Happy Wednesday everyone! Keep strong you are all amazing!

Here is todays learning:

Spelling: Today you are going to be looking at some more common exception words (word that do not always following our spelling rules). We would like you to read them, cover them up and write them (no peeping!) Once you have completed this see if you can use them correctly in each sentence. Then have some fun by writing them in bubble writing and colouring them in.

Mathematics: Today you are going to be applying your 5 times tables to help you answer questions. Instead at looking at lots of (X) 2 you will be looking at lots of(X) five instead and counting in fives not 2 today. Look at the 5 times table below to help as well.

5 Times Table | Five Times Table | DK Find Out

Use the White rose Hub video to support your learning and we will go through the question tomorrow on zoom for further support.

English: Today we are going to start re-writing the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. There are two parts to your English. Firstly we would like you to plan your writing. You can follow the first learning video below to help with this. We are asking you to think of adjectives, verbs and adverbs that you could add to the story and improve the sentences.

Once you have completed your planning you can use your fabulous new vocabulary to write the first part of the story. There are examples under your planning template and below is a video to help you and show you how to use your planning to write you sentences.

Design and Technology: Lets have some fun today! We would like you to create a lever that pulls The Very Hungry Caterpillar through different types of fruit so it looks like he is munching his way through them. We have included the few resources you will need and step by step instructions on how to make it. You may need some adult support with some parts.

Tuesday’s Learning (23rd February).

Happy Tuesday everyone! Well done for your first day back yesterday.

Today’s learning.

Phonics: We are continuing to look at the two different ways we say and spell the ‘oi’ grapheme. Today we would like you to read the phoneme spotter and then underline or write all words that include either the ‘oi’ or ‘oy’ grapheme. Remember you can check your answer by clicking on the link below on the Phonics Play website. As an extra challenge we would love to see some silly sentences being written using as many of the words you have found today.


Today we are looking at applying the 2 times tables.

2 times table with games at

You may be able to use your doubling knowledge from yesterday to help. Before you look at the worksheet you can watch the white Rose Hub learning video to support your understanding. Also you can use my maths video to help you answers each question on your sheet.

English: We are looking at adverbs today. Adverbs describe a verb (action word). The video below explains this further. For your task we would like you to firstly find some adverbs in sentences. You can either underline them or write them on your own paper. Then we would like to use the list of ‘how’ adverbs we have given you to complete the sentences linked to The Very Hungry Caterpillar story. Try to challenge yourself to use some adverbs you have not heard of or used before. Also remember your sentences will need to make sense. Finally we would like you to make a list of adverbs you think would be useful for your writing later in the week linked to our story.

Finally we are looking at Science today. Over the next few weeks we are going to be looking at habitats. Habitat means where animals including humans live and how it helps them to survive. Today we would like you to think about local habitats. These are the type of places we live in or live near. Read the information about the four different habitats and then sort the animals into there matching habitat. You do not need to print and cut out just list or draw each animal under each habitat heading. As an extra challenge you may want to go for a walk with your family and then draw a map of your local habitat. You may even see some animals you can include on your map.

Monday’s Learning (22nd February)

Welcome Back GIF by memecandy

Welcome back everyone. Hope you all had a lovely rest last week, you certainly deserved it!

So here we go! Your were all just so amazing last half term and we were so very proud of your continued aspirations and resilience. I know we can all carry on!

Our new topic for this half term is Wriggle and Crawl!

Image result for wriggle and crawl
Can you guess what this topic is all about?

Phonics: Today were are going to be looking at the 2 different graphemes that represent the ‘oi’ phoneme. To remind you of how to pronounce this phoneme you can watch the short video below before you start your task.

We would then like you to read aloud all the words with either the ‘oi’ or ‘oy’ grapheme in (use your robot arms to help you) and then sort them under the matching heading.

Mathematics: In maths today we are going to have a recap on making doubles. Doubles means when you add the same number together, EG 2 add another 2 or 3 add another 3. Below is a little song to help the remember your doubles.

You can also watch the white Rose Hub teaching video before you start your task for further support. We will go through your task during zoom today as well.

English: To start our wriggle and crawl topic off we are going to be looking at the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar this week.

Image result for the very hungry caterpillar

We would like you to read along with the story either independently or with an adult and then answer the questions on your worksheet. You may want to read through the story a few times to help you find the answers. Where possible see if you can answer in full sentences using your very neat handwriting.

RE: Last half term we learnt about who Guru Nanak was and what religion he is linked to. Today we are going to look at why he is special to Sikh people. Use the information on the sheet to help or watch the video ( link found on worksheet). Guru Nanak often thanked God for many things and people. We would also like you to think about who you would like to thank and why too.

Thursday’s Learning (11th February)

Hello everyone. Well we have nearly made it! Before We let you know about your learning for today we would just like to say we are so very proud of each and everyone of you. We have been so impressed with your aspirations and resilience you have shown over the last half term. You are all superstars! We would also like to send a massive thank you to your families for printing or writing out your work, supporting you with your learning, helping you come and join us on zoom and just for being there amazing selves. We really could not do this without you.

Digital Detox Day

Don’t forget tomorrow is digital detox day. We have uploaded some suggestions for you to follow if you choose on this blog so you do not have to go onto the blog at all tomorrow.


In phonics today we would like to become word detectives. Your mission is to find lots of phase 5 tricky words! First of all you have a picture and within this picture are lots of tricky words for you to find. Make sure you look carefully they are hidden very well! I think I have found 9. Next if possible we would love some help from your families. First of all we would like you to write out (spelt correctly) all the tricky words on the scavenger check list, on to bits of spare or scrap paper. Then ask a family member to hide them around the house. Your job is to find them, read them and then tick them off on your sheet or list them on paper as you find them. I wonder if you can find all of them?


In maths we are continuing with multiplication. Last week we briefly looked at arrays and we will be using them to day to help use represent multiplication. Remember array is just another way to show multiplication.

Image result for array

You can watch the white Rose Hub video to help support the start of your learning and then use my video to support you with the worksheet we are asking you to complete today. I wonder if you can spot who is lurking about in the background today!


For English today we would like you to bring together this weeks learning and write your own version of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We would like you to use your adjectives and keep the same structure as the story so you can split your writing up into smaller parts if this is easier. (goats arriving at the bridge, Goat taking it in turns to go across the bridge, the troll ends up in the water and the goats carry on to the nice green grass).


This week we have looked at different bridges around Great Britain. Today we would like you to design and if possible make your own bridge for a toy vehicle to travel over. When you design your bridge you will need to think about what materials you will use and how you will make it strong. If you look back at the pictures from yesterday, notice what shapes have been used in each design to help make it strong. Once you have thought about this draw your design. Finally make your bridge if you are able to and test it for strength using you chosen toy vehicle.

Wednesday’s Learning (10th February)

Christmas Smile GIF

Good Morning. We hope you had another enjoyable day in the snow. We have enjoyed seeing all your pictures. We are impressed with all the amazing snowmen and snow angels being created!

Wednesday’s Learning.


In phonics we are recapping on alternative ways to pronounce the ‘ee’ phoneme. We would like you to write a word for each picture using the correct ‘ee’ grapheme. If you would like a reminder of the different ways to pronounce the ‘ee’ phoneme then you can watch the Mr Thorn Video below.


For maths today we are continuing to look at representing pictures or statements using the multiplication symbol. Below is the White Rose Hub introduction video you might want to watch first to help support your learning.

I have also created 2 short videos (part 1 and 2) to help you when you are completing your worksheets today.


In English we would like you to retell the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have given you a story map you can follow to support this. You might want to think about how you would start your story. See if you can have a think before our zoom call today and you can share your ideas. We would also like you to use your adjectives from yesterday while retelling the story. For example: As the middle-sized, handsome goat slowly crossed the rickety bridge the ferocious Troll suddenly appeared. Finally when you are retelling the story it would be great for you to try and use expression in your voice. You might want to use speech and change your voice for each character.


In Geography we would like you to read the information on bridges and then as with the castle activity plot them onto a map of the Untied Kingdom. You can use the same map as the one you used for the castle task or use a blank map provided. If you are unable to use the map template then you can ask your child to point to the where each bridge is on the map as you open it from the blog.

Tuesday’s Learning (9th February)

Rolling Tian Tian GIF

Good morning Year 2. We hope everyone had fun in the snow yesterday. Well done for completing work as well yesterday, we were very impressed!

Here is your learning for today.


In phonics we are going to continue to look at the alternative ‘ar’ Grapheme again. Today we would like you to read the text and play phoneme spotter. See if you can circle, underline or list all the words that include an ‘ar’ grapheme. Remember you can check your answer on Phonics Play.


In Maths we are looking at using the multiplication symbol to represent equal groups today.

Image result for multiplication vocabulary ks1

Above are a variety of ways we can verbalise the use of the multiplication symbol and this might help with your learning today. Below is the normal white Rose Hub video to support your learning. Also included is a teaching video linked to most of the questions on todays worksheet. I have included similar examples for you to watch and pause if you want or need to.


In English today we would like you to describe that mean, ferocious Troll.

We have provided some vocabulary choices but obviously you can use your own brilliant ideas. Watch the video below to find out more and to support your learning. Watch out through I am not sure who is modelling your writing today!


In RE over this term we have looked at special books, festivals and prayer for some people. Today we are going to look at a special person for people who follow the religion of Sikhism. We would like you to read about this special person for Sikhs called Guru Nanak and then answer questions linked to what you have discovered.

Monday’s learning (8th February 2021)

Image result for monday snow gif

Good morning Year 2. We hope you had a brilliant weekend and enjoyed time in the snow. We are doing Phonics, Maths, English and Science today. Science includes going for a walk so hopefully the weather is okay to be able to do that at some point today.


We are looking at the alternative spellings for the /ar/ phoneme. Sort the words into the correct column after reading them and deciding which spelling is used for the /ar/ phoneme.

Miss Fretton will do a lesson on zoom this morning to get you ready for your phonics task.


We will discuss this a little more on the zoom call but today we are looking a little more at equal groups. We will be moving onto adding equal groups. Watch the video and be ready to go through the worksheet on zoom.


We are looking at bridges this week across our afternoon lessons. We start off with a story involving a bridge. ‘Three Billy Goats Gruff’ is a story involving problem solving in order to cross a bridge. We will use this story in our English lessons this week so we want you to read the story and answer the questions linked to it. There will be videos in the week to explain more.


In Science this week, we are looking at everyday materials and investigating how and why materials are used for certain objects. For example, a fence can be made of wood but can also be made of metal. Why? What properties does wood have that are different to metal? Which is better? We want you to go for a walk, either today or at some point this week, and find everyday objects and write down which material it is made out of. For example, if you see a fence, you would write down fence (draw it) and then write down the material that the fence is made out of. We will explain this more on zoom tomorrow.
