Year 2 Home Learning Tasks – Thursday 2nd July
Hi Year 2!
Have a fantastic day!
Here are today’s activities…
English – Reading
Read the text ‘Annie and the Pirate King’ by Jenny Feely and answer the following questions in full sentences.
Annie grabbed the feather from the bag. She ran up to the sea monster and began to tickle it’s huge chin.
At first, the sea monster was surprised. It began to shake and quiver, then it opened its mouth and burst out laughing.
The Pirate King fell to the deck. Annie kept on tickling the sea monster. It laughed and laughed. It shook so much from laughing that the jewels began to fall out of it’s mouth.
Annie opened the box and ran around the ship catching the jewels as they fell.
As soon as Annie stopped tickling the giant sea monster, it raised its head high above the ship and roared a terrible roar. Then, with a gigantic splash, the sea monster threw itself back into the sea and was never seen again.
- What does ‘quiver’ mean?
- Why was the sea monster laughing?
- Why was the empty box useful?
- Can you think of four adjectives to describe the jewels?
- Can you think of a word to use instead of ‘terrible’ when describing the roar.

Good morning Miss Duncan and Miss Battams
Quiver means your body is shaking.
The sea monster was laughing because Annie was tickling him.
The empty box was useful because the jewels could go in it .
Four words are, shiny, bright, expensive and precious.
Another word instead of terrible is destroying.
The sea monster dived under the water, back to his giant palace so he could protect his precious jewels.
The huge beautiful palace was hidden behind lots of colourful weeds.
