Good Morning Year 2!

Let's start the day with a cheerful song! Oh look, I've used a word with a suffix!!!! I love dancing to this song!


1 - Complete page 22 of the handwriting booklet. Like yesterday, you  are going to practise words that we use a lot in our writing and  practise joining the letters in the words. Trace each word and copy each word 3 times, neatly and carefully. Make sure that you use a sharp pencil.


2 - Yesterday we looked at a version of the traditional story Jack and the beanstalk . Today we are going to listen to a different version and in this version we can also follow the text in the book as it is being read.  This story has a lot more detail and uses lots of effective and interesting words. I wonder which version you will prefer? 

Before you start listening and following the story get a new page of your exercise book infront of you and see if you can do the ed challenge. Can you write a list of 20 words form the story that have the suffix ed at the end ?You can keep pausing the story as you listen.

I will start you off. On the very first page I heard , found and read these words ending in in ed. So I've started my list.

Click on the story below and start the challenge!


Here is today's starter. Have a go in your exercise book , remember to DRAW TO BE SURE if you need to. After you have had a go click on the star to check the answers.

Main maths lesson

Today we are going to recap on partitioning the same number in different ways. Look at the examples underneath to help you remember how to do this. 


The number I am going to partition is 52. I've made 52 using tens and ones and I've also drawn the tens and ones. I have got 5 tens and 2 ones. 50 + 2 = 52 or 52 = 50 + 2

Look at how I've partitioned 52 in different ways. I've used my drawing of 52 each time to help me. I have always got 52 but each time I have partitioned or split the number in different ways. Can you see a pattern? I can also draw part - part - whole models to show different ways of partitioning 52.


Choose one of these 2 digit numbers.


45          63         74          55

On a page in your exercise book show different ways of partitioning  the number you have chosen.

Put your chosen number at the top of your page.

Draw the tens and ones to help you.

I would also like you to try and draw some part - part - whole models. 


Art / topic

1. Watch the short clip  all the way through to show you how to draw a sunflower step by step.


2. Then play it again and draw your own sunflower at the same time , make it quite big. You can keep pausing it as you draw.

3. You could also colour it, in correct sunflower colours of course! It would be lovely to have lots of photographs of your sunflowers so that I can put them altogether.


For this experiment all you will need is the tops  from 2 or 3 carrots. Try and set this experiment up over the next few days so that you can make some careful observations. Remember an observation is when you look carefully and notice what is happening.

All you need to do is place the carrot tops in a plate with a few centimetres of water and put them in a sunny spot. Check the water everyday and top it up so that it doesn't dry out. 

After a few days you should start to notice some changes. You could draw some pictures to show the changes that happen. What do you think will happen ?




Make sure a grown-up helps you with the carrot tops!

Story time

It's time for the next chapter of our story , James and the giant peach by Roald Dahl. Before you listen can you name the characters that we have met so far ?
