Home Learning Wednesday 10th June 2020

Good morning Year 2! Well done again if you finished your home learning tasks yesterday. We had some great work sent to us again. Keep it up!


We’d also like to say a big thank you to our parents for your continued support with your child’s education at home. Every little bit you do together at home really will make a difference and it will help your child to keep practising their learning skills for when they come back to school.

Have a wonderful Wednesday and enjoy your learning tasks! Don’t forget to let us see the amazing work you’ve been doing either by email yeartwo@lingsprimary.org.uk, or by leaving a comment on this blog post.

MIss Battams and Miss Duncan.




Today’s lesson is about using contractions in your writing.

This is where we can use an apostrophe in our words. For example cannot becomes can’t, I am becomes I’m, was not becomes wasn’t. This is a skill we have learnt in class previously.

  1. Watch the short video to remind yourself what contractions are and how they work.
  2. Complete activity 2. Fill in the contraction words. This is an interactive task online. If you cannot do it online use the photograph below to help you complete this activity.

3. Now have a go at Activity 1. Play the online game about contractions. When you open the game make sure you find Steve on the map and complete his contraction challenge as that is what we are learning about today. You might be able to play one of the other games later.

You will not be able to complete this task if you are unable to access the game online. Instead you could have a go at writing five sentences. Each sentence should have a different contraction so that you get lots of practice using them. Use the words below to write your sentences.

Example: have not   –  The baker said “I haven’t got any cakes left”.

  1. cannot
  2. was not
  3. I am
  4. did not
  5. could not



Today’s lesson is all about sharing and how this links to division. This is a skill we have practised in class previously.

  1. Watch the short video to remind you of sharing and how this links to division.
  2. Have a go at activity 1. This is a worksheet you can either download or you can use the photograph below to help you complete the task.

3. Have a go at Activity 3. Play the Karate Cats Maths game. Make sure you select Division as this is the skill we are practising today. You might be able to have a go at some of the other games later. You will not be able to complete this task if you cannot access the game online, but you could have a go at writing some of your own questions about division and sharing.



For phonics we would like you to practice writing out these sentences using your knowledge of common exception word spellings and your knowledge of sound spellings.  Ask an adult to read the sentences outloud to you. Repeat the sentence back to your adult and do this a few times to help the sentence stick in your mind. Look at how many words you need to complete each sentence. Then have a go at writing it. You also need to think about the correct punctuation, finger spaces and handwriting.

  1. I would like to see the sights in the night time. I could take a light so it looks brighter.
  2. My parents could take me to make a cake with a baker and play a game with a mate.
  3. My father took our baby to the park for a walk in the warm sunshine.
  4. I wanted to fly higher in the sky than a bird or an eagle.
  5. There was a path across my garden that I followed slowly because I didn’t know where it went to.



Last week was an historic week with Space X and NASA working together to launch a joint mission to the International Space Station (ISS). Together they sent two astronauts into space. It was the first time a private company had provided NASA with a rocket that could carry humans.

Watch the short video showing the launch of the rocket and then have a think about what it must be like going into space. What kind of person do you need to be? How would it make you feel? If you would like to go into space what or where would you choose to explore?

Have a go at writing a letter to NASA and Space X to tell them why you would make a great astronaut and what you would like to explore for them. Don’t forget to use punctuation, finger spaces and your phonetic sounds for spellings. You should also try to keep your handwriting neat.  It would also be great if you could use conjunctions to expand your writing and to explain you reasons. Try to convince them what a great astronaut you would make!



It is important to stay active and do a little exercise each day. You could log into the PE using the details below or have a go at the virtual games.

This weeks virtual games is all about football skills. Click on the video to see what you have to do. Don’t forget to let us know how you’ve got on! You can send your scores to PE@lingsprimary.org.uk and earn points for our school.



Yesterday we encouraged you to sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge. Can you read a little more of the first book you have chosen? It would be great if you could leave us a comment on the blog to tell us a little bit about one of the characters in your book. If you haven’t registered for the challenge yet, there is still plenty of time!
