Good morning Year 2!

Today on our timetable we have English, Maths, Science and Handwriting. I will feedback on your English work today.

We will have our class call at 2.40pm. I hope that you can all join us. We’ll read the next part of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to allow us to do some World Book Day activities on Thursday. The story tomorrow is a little longer, so please can we meet 5 minutes earlier so we’re not rushing.

As part of your return to school, Miss White has asked if everyone can complete and return this short task by Thursday. . . .

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 Purple. Then today I’d recommend that you read the book ‘Dinosaur Safari’.

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


In English today we are going to continue to at dialogue. Today we will read some sentences and put the speech marks in the correct place. Work your way through the examples on the PowerPoint presentation before you begin your task.

Today in maths we will be completing our work linked to pictograms. You will be interpreting pictograms.



In science today we will continue our work with materials. Today we will be looking at raw and synthetic materials. Work you way through the PowerPoint first to learn what raw and synthetic materials are.

You will then sort a collection of materials into raw and synthetic. Then I’d like you to write a couple of sentences explaining what raw materials are and a couple of sentences explaining what synthetic materials are.

Thank you for all your hard work.
