Hi Year 2!

I can’t believe today is the second to last day.

Not long to go before the summer holidays. Keep it up!

Here are today’s activities…


English – 

Today you are going to write a letter to the Year One children who are going into Year 2 in September.

Some of them are excited and some of them are nervous.

What would you tell them about Year 2?

What are the features you need to remember when writing a letter?

Review – read the following common exception words: for, as, move, door, sugar

Solve the following problems.



Warm up: Wiggle your fingers up high, down low, to the side and in front of you.
Stretch your fingers out like fireworks nine times.

Can you write the following Common Exception Words joined up at least six times? Remember to leave a finger space.
* for
* as
* move

Tick your neatest formation and be proud of your handwriting.



Today we are going to explore ‘Pointillism’.

Look at the examples before.

Instead of colouring in, the artists have used different sized dots.

Draw/sketch anything you like and use dots to add colour.



This is one of the new books in my collection.

I hope you like it.

We look forward to seeing your work!

    Dear Year 1,

    Well where do i start for Year 2, it has been exciting and now you have to start doing real work.

    As you are getting older there is no fruit in year 2, so you will have to bring your own fruit in which is your responsibility.

    You will be doing a lot more writing and more maths.

    Have fun with art and learn about online safety.

    Well i hope this help you and prepares you for year 2.

    Goodbye, best of luck in Year 2

    From Zion.
