Year 2 - Home Learning 27.03.2020

We have nearly completed our first week of home learning!  Please see below the activities for tomorrow. It would be lovely to see some of the stories the children have written – you are more than welcome to email these across to me if you like.

Here is a link to the Oxford Owl website:  You can create a free account and gain access to lots of e-books online.  You can select which book band is suitable for your child to read. Use the colour of their school reading book to help.

I hope you all have a good day tomorrow.

L.O: To problem solve.

I have attached some reasoning and problem solving tasks linked to odd and even numbers.

Tip for the addition of odd and even numbers.  Sometimes children can find it tricky to start these problems.  I would recommend writing down single digit numbers (0-9) and then have a go at adding them to see what the answers are and whether they can be divided equally into two groups. This will help them see what possible numbers Jermaine could have used.


30 mins

 L.O: To edit my work

If you haven’t finished then take some time to keep writing.

Read through the story you have written. Read it out loud so you can hear any parts that do not make sense– edit where needed.

You could also read your work backwards (like we do in class!).  This will help you spot any words that do not look like they are spelt correctly.  Use your sound mat and common exception word mat to edit.  You could also check some spellings with an adult if you can.

Write a title for your story.

Draw an illustration if you have time!


15 mins

Read your reading book.

Think about a characters feelings – how are they feeling throughout the book?  How do you know this?  Why are they feeling this way?  


45 mins

L.O: To explore what friendship, peace and forgiveness mean to me.

Talk about what the above mean to you. Draw a picture to show this.  Write a sentence to explain: Friendship to me is when….

Golden Time!

30 mins

It is that time of the week where we would usually enjoy Golden Time.

Choose something fun to do (check with an adult first!). You could do some colouring in the garden, play a board game, play on a scooter or bike etc.

Enjoy year 2 :-)
