Happy happy Friday Year 2!

We’ve survived another week! Thank you for all your hard work this week. Everyone is working hard and learning lots. Keep it up! Today we will be doing Reading Comprehension, Maths, RE (Art), Computing and Handwriting. I will be feedback on Maths today.

Remember we are going to meet together using Google Classroom at 2.45 pm this afternoon. I’m really looking forward to seeing you. It will be Collective Worship this afternoon. Please remember that we need to be calm and still during Collective Worship so please no teddies, drinks or snacks!

Spellings and Mental Maths

Please ask an adult to test you on this weeks spellings and mental maths. SPELLINGS 22.1.21

These are your new spellings to learn ready for next Friday SPELLINGS 29.1.21


Please keep reading. Try to read a little bit every day. Remember you can login into Oxford Owl using the username and passwords y2smst. Once you’ve logged in, I would recommend that you click on the level at the right hand side. Move it down to the Book Band level Turquoise. Then today I’d recommend that you read the book ‘Super Coldo’.

Please don’t worry if you’re reading something else at home – keep reading that!

Reading Comprehension

Today we will think about everything we have heard so far in the story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. You need to read a collection of statements from the story and cut and stick them into the correct order. Read them all carefully before you begin!



In maths today you will solve some subtraction problems using the new strategy you have learnt this week. Please show all your working out. If you need to remind yourself of the strategy, the video link is below.


RE (Art)

In RE today you will design your very own Bible Cover. You can think carefully about a title for your Bible. You may want to think about what a Bible is. Your Bible will be for children so it needs to be illustrated well. You may want to illustrate your favorite story, you could split the page up into 2, 3 or 4 smaller boxes to enable you to draw more illustrations. The choice is yours! Good luck and have fun! 🙂

Hello Year 2.

During computing today, we are going to use the internet to find some information. First, use this Y2 What is the Internet PowerPoint to help you answer these questions:

  • What is the internet?
  • Where is the information on the internet?

Now, take some time to look at this website What do you notice about how the website is set out?

Using the information from the website, can you answer these questions about apple ants?

  1. What do apple ants eat?
  2. Where do apple ants live?
  3. What puts apple ants in danger?
  4. What do you do with apple ants when you make a green apple pie?

Do you think apple ants are real? Which sentences from the website make you think they are not real? Does this mean we can trust all of the information we see on the internet? I look forward to seeing your work. Mr. Patterson.


We will be looking at another letter today. It is the letter ‘e’

Have a wonderful weekend Year 2! Make sure you have lots of fun and get lots of rest!

Mrs Gourley! 🙂
