Hi Year Two!

Tomorrow ,Friday 8th May is the 75th Anniversary of VE day !


1. Handwriting

Complete page 31 in the handwriting booklet. This also includes some phonics/spelling work so is very good practise. 

2. Spelling test

Have a practise of the spellings for this week and then ask a grown-up to test you. The words for this week are,

should        would         could        great       break       steak       grass

            pass              class

There are only 9 words so your grown-up could choose a word from last week and check that you've remembered how to spell it.




No writing needed.

Before you start can you summarise the first 2 chapters and explain to your grown-up what has happened in the story up to this point ?

Listen to and follow chapter 3. Choose 3 words that you would like clarifying. Discuss them with your grown-up.


Read and follow Chapter 3. Ask a grown-up to find the right place. It is on 8 mins 27 seconds.

Some VE day activities to choose from.

  1.  Design a poster similar to the one in the video.
  2. Use lego to make a VE day model , such as a flag , or an aeroplane etc.
  3.  Draw around something round like a small plate and make a design for a VE day celebration medal.
  4.  Or design a coin that celebrates VE day.
  5.  Make some VE day bunting or some Union Jack flags to put in your window.
  6.  Lots of people had parties planned for VE day but these cannot go ahead because of the lockdown.  However if you were having a party, what food would you like to have? Create a menu showing the different food for your imaginary VE Day party. 
  7. Make a fact sheet about VE day.
  8.  You might have heard of Captain Tom who raised nearly thirty three million pounds for the NHS by walking around his garden. Last week he turned 100 years old! He was in the British Army during World War 2. You could find out about his life and make a fact sheet all about him.
  9.  Use an atlas or an online map to look at Europe. Make a list of all the countries that are in Europe today. 
  10.  I really like the last two videos. The first one is some children from another school singing some popular songs from the time of World War 2 and the second one is a song all about being a child during World War 2. Have a listen and join in!
