Good Morning Year 2!

Here's my lion picture ! I think that I will add some colour to it.


1 - Complete the next page of the handwriting booklet . Page 8 


2 - In our English lessons we learn about  different types of punctuation. Can you show your grown-up the actions for these. Capital letter , full stop , exclamation mark , question mark .

Remember questions need question marks , like this ?

Here are some questions.

What time does the party start?

How old is the dog?

When will it be dinner time?

Why are you sad?


  • Watch the clip below of an owl , this is a different type of owl called a Little Owl.
  • Take a page in your exercise book and see if you can think of some questions to ask about a Little Owl. Make a list of at least 8 questions (you don't need to write answers) Here is one to start you off. Don't forget the question mark at the end and use careful handwriting. 
  • Where do Little Owls live ?

Some useful question words

What    Where    Why    When   Which   How

4 - EXTRA If you have written the questions quickly then have a go at practising some other punctuation.

  • Write two sentences about the Little Owl using exclamation marks. !
  • Write two sentences about the Little Owl that need commas in a list.   ,
  • Here are some examples.
  • The Little owl has very beautiful feathers!
  • It has brown , white and grey feathers.

Maths 1 . Watch the telling the time programme.

A maths program about telling the time.

2 - Have a go at the time game below. Choose level 1 . These are the times you should know in Year 2.

If you know the other times , then have a go at level 2 . We have not started to learn these yet but you could practise with an adult at home. 


  • 3 - Now have a go at page 98 in your booklet. These questions are either adding or subtracting small numbers within 10. They may seem easy but remember not to make careless mistakes and check the sign each time. 




What animal is this part of the music about ?

Talk about it with your grown-up, see what ideas they have.

Time to listen to a different part of 'Carnival Of The Animals'


Check with a grown-up before you start this work and work with their support

1. Talk about the word waterproof and what it means.

(It is something that keeps water out. A plastic raincoat is an example of something that is waterproof)


2. Read this information. 

Owls do not have waterproof feathers but ducks do. The feathers on a duck are covered in a waxy oil that stops  them from soaking up water. If their feathers were not waterproof they would get waterlogged. This means that their feathers would soak up the water. They would not be able to move very well and it would be hard for them to find food. So having waterproof feathers is very important for a duck!


3. TASK  

Find out about some different materials in your house and whether they are waterproof or not waterproof. Collect them together first. You could test , 

  • tin foil
  • tissue
  • kitchen roll
  • paper
  • a piece of plastic bag
  • a cloth
  • cotton wool
  • a piece of fabric
  • or anything else you think would be good to test


4.  Now for testing time. Drop small drops of water slowly onto the different materials and see if they soak in or not. If they run off the material or just stay on the surface then they are waterproof. Make a table in your book like the on below to record what happens.


waterproof/not waterproof 

tick or cross

kitchen roll  
cotton wool  
tin foil
