Welcome back Year 2!


1 - We are going to start with some handwriting. Complete page 21 in your handwriting booklet. This practises writing words that we use a lot in our writing and practises joining the letters. Trace the word and copy it 3 times  neatly and carefully.

2 -Before the Easter holidays we learnt about the suffixes ful and less.Today we are going to remind ourselves of the suffix ly

Often when we add ly to a word it makes an adverb. An adverb describes the verb or the action.  Look at the examples.

She reads slowly.  

They looked carefully.

The monster roared loudly.


 Now watch the little song about making words with the suffix ly.


A funny little song about words ending in the suffix - ly

3 -  Now take a page in your exercise book and make a suffix ly poster by changing the words below.

Look at the example below to show you how to set your work out. 

If a word ends in y , remember to change it to i and then add ly.  EXAMPLE happy ---happily


Words to change

proud     sad        loud      brave        soft      quick       slow       quiet      neat      polite      sudden       angry      smooth     easy     lazy     clear

4 - This week we will be reading the traditional story , Jack and the beanstalk. Today I would like you you to listen and watch this version of the story . Watch out for any words ending in the suffix ly as you listen.Talk about the characters and the settings(where the story takes place.)


Everyday this week we are going to start our maths lessons with a quick starter on the whiteboard ,(see below.)We will go over lots of the different maths questions that we have learnt about in Year 2.


Have a go at the questions in your exercise book. Remember if you need to  - DRAW TO BE SURE!


After you have had a go at the questions click on the star to check your answers. Don't worry if you have forgotten  what to do , look at the questions and talk about them with your grown-up.


Maths starter

Main part of maths lesson.

Before the Easter holidays we started some work on measuring length in centimetres  cm   and metres m .


100cm = 1m 

so there are 100 centimetres in 1 metre.

Below is some measuring work for you to have a go at. You don't need to print this off you can work through it and jot your answers in your exercise book. You will be using the maths signs

  <    >    =

Remember the large part of the sign goes to the bigger number.

So  45 cm  >   20 cm      45 cm is greater than 20 cm

       1 m <  2m          1 metre is less than 2 m

       1m = 100cm      1 metre is the same as 100 centimetres.


Click the link below for the questions.

Make sure you do questions 1,2,3 and 4.

Questions 5 and 6 are trickier so maybe work through with an adult helping if you need to.

Question 7 is a challenge question. Can you work out what to do? Talk about it with your adult.


You can also check your answers by clicking on the second link.



Topic / Science

Our new topic this half term is called 'The wonderful world of plants'.

1. Think about everything you already know about plants. Discuss your ideas with a grown-up and ask them to jot down all of your ideas.


2. Now watch the two short science clips by clicking on the links below to remind you about plants, the different parts of a plant and why they are living things.


3. We are going to recap the parts of plant. Take a page in your exercise book and draw a picture of a flower with its roots.   Can you remember the different parts? Can you label your picture?  There is a picture below to help you if you're not sure what to do.

roots     stem    leaf   flower   petal   bud

Write  some sentences about the different parts.


4. If you have an outside space , go outside with an adult and see how many different plants you can find. Remember to think about the trees and grass! You might have plants inside your house too. Talk about them and what you notice.


It's time for a story.

At the end of the school day every class in our school settles down to listen to a story. Over the next couple of weeks I'm going to read  James and the giant peach by Roald Dahl.

You might have a copy of this book at home so you will be able to follow the text in your copy.

I hope you enjoy it!
