Good morning Year 2,

I hope that everyone has had a good rest over the weekend and is looking forward to another fun filled week of learning! Today we will be doing English, Maths, RE, Handwriting and we’ll end with our story. I will feedback on the RE work 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.


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 ‘Dragon Hunter’.

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


In English we will be learning about exclamations. Please work your way through the PowerPoint presentation before you complete the independent task




In maths today we will be recapping the subtraction skills that we learnt before Easter. You will need to have access to your tens and ones to help you today. Watch the video first where I remind you of the strategy before you work through the task.

Can I politely ask parents and helpers not to show your child the more formal written method that you would have been taught in school. The stage that the children are at now is crucial for their understanding in what they are doing and the size of the numbers they are working with. This will definitely support their understanding and development as they go into Key Stage 2 and start working with hundreds, thousands and also decimals. Thank you!



In RE today we are continuing our work with Gospels. Today we will think about what happens when we listen to the Gospels at church.

Please watch the video before you work through the PowerPoint and then watch it again afterwards.

Listening to the Gospels PowerPoint

For your task, you will make an information poster explaining to someone who hasn’t been to church before what we do when we listen to the Gospels.

Listen to the Gospels Pictures


In handwriting today we will be learning to write the letter ‘n’


Today we will listen to Chapter 7 of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’.

I hope that you all have a lovely Monday!

Mrs Gourley 🙂
