Good morning Year 2! We are another day closer to all being together again. Please remember to try and complete as much work as you can at home to prepare you for when we return.

Here is your timetable for today…


I have training this morning so I will be unavailable for zoom calls however I will be available for the afternoon zoom session. If any of your children find Maths or English hard, please come on to the 2:15pm zoom session and I will be happy to help then.

Please read your spellings above. After you have done that, write them out twice. First with your right hand and then with your left hand. After you have done that, put them in an alphabetical order list. This means you need to write them out again in alphabetical order – starting with the first word which will be any because it starts with an a and a is the first letter of the alphabet.

English Starter

You are going to be the punctuation police again – you are getting very good at this. Re write the passage below and add the capital letters and full stops in the right pace. Remember some nouns need capital letters, these are called proper nouns.

In English today, you are going to be finding interesting facts from the Non-Chronological Report ‘The Mind Blowing Blue Whale’. Read the report below again and familiarise yourself with it.

After you have read it, I want you to write down 8 facts that you have learned from reading the text. You could use bullet points to order your facts. If you want to, you can use the internet and find more facts about the blue whale and write your own facts.

Maths Meetings


In Maths today, you are going to continue practising column addition but we are going to be doing this by completing word problems. Below, you will find a selection of word problems. Please read them and use column addition to find the answers – I want to see your working out.
