Can you believe that we are in week 12 of home learning!

It is simply amazing how well everyone has adapted to this.

Please let us know if you would be in the class Zoom meeting as soon as possible. We are working on a date and time and will let you know the details soon.

Have a go at this morning challenge to warm up your brains.


You have the usual 3 tasks to complete today.

Task 1

LO: Extending sentences using connectives.

Complete the worksheets below.

Here is an example to help you.

If I could go into space, I would be lonely because none of my friends Space Space Research Transparent & PNG Clipart Free Download - YAWDwould be there.   



Task 2


Every now and then we will revisit some previous learning. Today, we are going to look at place value.

LO: revision of place value

There are quite a few activities here. You can have a go at all of them or maybe just 2 or 3 over a few days.

challenges  measurement

Task 3

Let’s think about your transition to Year 3.

Before our Zoom meeting, we would like you to complete the attached booklet. If you aren’t able to print it out then you can write down all your favorite facts about being in Year 2.


We are hoping to get a message from your new teacher to show you during our meeting.

Then, choose one of these activities to complete ready for Year 3.  The resources are all based on a superhero theme and include written and art activities that can be added to your classroom as a display. Here are some suggestions about how to use them:

  • Superhero Profile – Ask children to complete this activity sheet. It asks them for a superhero name, their secret identity (their real name), their super powers (what subjects / activities they are good at), their weaknesses (things they would like to get better at) and ways that they are going to change the world (their hopes and dreams for the future).
  • Superhero Shield Design – Challenge pupils to create a design to match their superhero character. Can they think of appropriate images to add to the design (to highlight their strengths / talents / interests)?
  • Or, you can design your own Year 3 super hero.






Finally, here’s a short story for you to enjoy at the end of your learning.

Happy Friday!

Your first task today is Love of Reading.

Find your favorite book, sit back and enjoy.

Here is a book review for you. Choose your favorite fiction and non fiction books to review.


Task 2

Revision of money

Here are a few activities. You can choose all the activities or one/two.

The first activity is for you to pretend to go shopping. You need to buy 2/3/4/ items and work out how much you have spent altogether.

An extra challenge would be to work out your change from £1, £2 and £5.




Good luck!

Task 3

Repeat pattern making

When thinking about shape in your designs, don’t just think about the shape of the end product.

Shapes can be used decoratively for a lot of products too.

Tessellation is when shapes fit together in a pattern with no gaps or overlaps.

A Fun Interactive Tessellation Tool - 123ICT 123ICT

The following short film gives an explanation of tessellation and shows it working, or not working, with different shapes.

Tessellating Capitals

I know that when doing symmetry we often have a look at CAPITAL LETTERS. We could try tessellating certain ones, deciding on good ones to try and those that would be no good.
A simple one to start with is the letter C – see what has happened when I’ve tried to tessellate them:


Slightly different …


Do you see how they are different?
Now try another one or two for yourself!

Capital F also seems a good one, but maybe it’s a little harder.


I decided to lay two of them down like this:


Then playing about with putting them together I got:


This I was quite happy with, so I thought that having shown you, you could try some for yourself.

Here are some sheets to help if you need them.



Please send us your tessellations.

Hello everyone!

Hope you have had a good week! Thanks very much for all your hard work.

It is my last week posting the Year 2 learning as Mrs Taylor and Mrs Freeman will be back setting you your three tasks from Monday! I’ve really enjoyed being back in Year 2 for a few weeks. Thank you!

Okay, here are the answers from yesterday’s learning:

Y2 – Reading – Thursday – ANSWERS

It’s our Love of Reading session today. I’d like you to sit down with a good book and enjoy reading together. You might share a book or your child may want to read independently. Talk about what you’re reading and ask some questions.

For maths, we’re doing the BBC challenges again. Remember to have a go at the Year 3 ones if you want a further challenge!

Finally, it’s another week of Andy Goldsworthy’s natural art challenges. Andy Goldsworthy Challenges – Week 3

If the weather’s bad, you can do some observational drawing of something natural: a banana, some flowers, a turnip, your brother. It is up to you! If you fancy doing something different, have a look at these arty videos for some inspiration.
