Home learning Tasks Tuesday 31st March

Good morning year 2!

Hope you are all doing well and still working hard. Today I’m going to have a go at baking some cookies whilst you do your tasks. I can enjoy them this afternoon when I take a look at your work and comments. Enjoy your home learning today and keep smiling!

Miss Battams 🙂

Here are today’s learning activities:

Reading – Complete the comprehension task  “Our Solar System” in your white English comprehension book. Remember to have a go yourself first before asking for help. You can do this! 🙂

Writing – Would you like to explore the Solar System? Can you write a piece to explain why you would or wouldn’t like to go into space. Your writing should have punctuation, finger spaces and you should try to use the conjunctions because, but, so that, to extend your writing and explain your answers. Remember it should be written in full sentences.

Sounds-Write Phonics
Review – Read these Year 2 words: path, bath, parents, wild, hold 
Read the words: option, caution, position
Write the words: location, operation, competition
Dictation: Get somebody to read out loud the following sentence and have a go at writing it using your phonic sounds and spellings to help you.

There was a secret operation at an unknown location. You must use caution to find the position.


Basic Skills: Which times tables would you find these numbers in? Remember some can be in more than one! How do you know? Can you spot any patterns that will help you?


Challenge: Can you write the whole multiplication sentence to show how you get to the numbers you were given?

Maths Task: Complete one of the maths practice papers in our home learning pack. Remember you should have a go first before you get any help. There is nothing we haven’t learnt in class this year so be confident and show your family how much you can do.

Warm up: Wiggle your fingers up high, down low, to the side and in front of you.
Stretch your fingers out like fireworks seven times.
Can you write the following letters joined up? Remember to leave a finger space.
* tt
* ll
* rr
* ee
Tick your neatest formation and be proud of your handwriting.

To maintain your healthy lifestyle we would like you to do some form of exercise every day.
