Year 2 Home Learning Tasks – Monday 18th May
Hi Year 2
We hope you had a great weekend.
If you were in school like normal, this week would of been our quiz week. It would be your chance to show off all of your amazing knowledge.
While it is disappointing to miss them, you can still show us your fantastic learning by commenting on the blog or emailing us your work.
Here are today’s learning activities.

You are going to be the teacher and do some marking.
Below are sentences that are missing capital letters and full stops.
Read the sentences then rewrite them so that they are correct.

This week we are going to be looking at letter writing.
Write a list, using bullets points, about what you need to include when writing a letter.
Are there any specific features in a letter you must include?
Have you written a letter before? Who to and why did you write the letter?
Sounds-Write Phonics (‘ed’ to a root word that ends with a y. Copy becomes copied so the ‘y’ becomes ‘i’ before the ending is added)

Write the following Year 2 Common Exception Words joined up at least six times? Remember to leave a finger space.
Tick your neatest formation and be proud of your handwriting.
For History today we are going to use a new BBC Bitesize online History lesson. It’s about Neil Armstrong and should remind you of your learning from our History lessons.
Watch the video/lesson and complete activity 1 and 2.
Please let us know how you got on with this style of lesson. Did you enjoy it? Was it useful? Was there anything you didn’t like about it?
Watch and listen to a wonderfully calming story.

Every morning, I wake up at exactly half past seven. The first thing I do is run down the stairs and eat my breakfast. Usually, I have a boiled egg with toast fingers. Next, I have a wash and brush my teeth. After that I put on my school uniform. Finally I give my mum and dad a goodbye kiss and walk to school.
