Good morning Year 2,

It’s Thursday already – time flies when you’re having fun!

Today we are going to do English, Maths, Science and PE. We’ll  end the day with another chapter of our story.

I looking forward to seeing all your work again today. Today I will be giving you feedback on your science work.


In English we will continue with our work on contractions. Today you will look at some contractions in sentences. You need to find the two words that could be contracted in the sentences. Underline these words and then write them in the contracted form at the end of the sentence. You’ll then have a go at writing some contracted words in your own sentences. Watch the PowerPoint presentation first where I will recap our learning.

In maths today we will continue to work on multiplication. You’re all getting very good at this and definitely have a solid understanding. Today we will be working making array patterns.



In science we are going to continue our work on animals and humans. We have already looked at life cyles. We looked at the life cycle of a human and the life cycle of a butterfly. Today we are going to think about a humans body parts and their functions. Take a look here at the video clip before you complete the activity sheet.

Remember it’s important to keep our bodies active, so here is another fun Joe Wicks workout for you to take part in.


We’ll continue with our story ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. We’re up to Chapter 3. Today we’ll find out about Mr Wonka and the Indian Prince.

Thanks for all your hard work. Have a lovely evening!

Mrs Gourley 🙂
