Home Learning Platform

Good morning Year 2!

I certainly didn’t think we’d be doing Home Learning again! Never mind, it’s not for too long so we’ll try to make the most of it and enjoy it as much as possible! 🙂

We will be starting each day with a Google Classroom. They will begin this morning at 9.15 am. If you have any trouble with your login and passwords please contact Miss Green at school.

The timetable for today is; Google Classroom, English, Maths, French and PE.

Like the last time, each day I will feedback on one piece of your work in detail. Today I will feedback on English work. Please email all of your work to me at our class email address 


Today in English you will write a paragraph describing Grandma from ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’. You will need to think about all of the expanded noun phrases that we created in English on Thursday last week. Remember these described her; hair, nose, eyes, teeth, mouth, skin, smile and personality.

It would probably be useful for your to listen once again to Chapter 1 from the story. Here is a link to Chapter 1 if you don’t have this story at home.

To help you write your description of Grandma work your way through the Powerpoint presentation that I ahve put together for you.

This week in maths we are going to be spending some time looking at 3D shapes, thinking about their names and their properties.

First though, I have a warm up activity for you linked to doubles. Read Hungry Horace’s story …
