Year 2 Home Learning – Monday 30th November

Hi Year 2

We hope you have a wonderful day!

Here are today’s learning activities.


English – Reading

Reread the following text.

Silently a group of orphans sleep in an orphanage.
Quietly, the window shutters open and in crawls a mysterious creature.  He doesn’t look too friendly at first but we soon see what his plan is.
This is the Dreamgiver and by cracking his dream eggs he makes sure the childrens’ nights are pleasurable. He creates the dreams by cracking the eggs onto stories, posters and ballet shoes.


Answer the following questions:

  1. Why is he described as ‘mysterious’?
  2. Why do you think the Dreamgiver does what he does?
  3. Why do you think dreams are in eggs?
  4. Why does it all happened at night?
  5. What do you think happens if an egg smashes?


English – Writing

Watch the short film stopping at 3:14.

Even though you might be tempted to, don’t watch all of it. It will spoil your work for the rest of the week.


If you could be transported into a book, which book and why?

Write your response in full sentences.

*what happens in the book so what happens to you?

    1. I think he is mysterious because nobody knows him and seen him.
    2.The Dreamgiver makes the kids happy.
    3.I think dream are in eggs because every child has a dream egg.
    4. because at night the kids sleep and dream.
    5 then the dreams get mixed up.

    I would like to be transported to Charlie and the chocolate factory. I would meet Charlie and eat a lot of chocolate. this is a story book.
    46 is wrong 10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55,60

    I would like to be transported in to cave boy and the egg. I will meet cave boy and dad and will go and hunt for fish for dinner together.
    The answer is wrong. Because there is no 46

      Well done Jeshurun!

    1.He is described as mysterious because no one ever seen him
    2.The Dreamgiver does it because he likes it
    3.If the dream were not in eggs they would be lost
    4.It happened at night so children can have nice dreams
    5.If an egg was smashed over something not so nice it would give bad dreams.

    I would love to be transported into fiction book “Welcome to Santa’s toy shop”. I would meet Santa and elfs and reindeer. I could help preparing present and delivering them to all children around the world to make them happy.

    10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60
    I’ll not say the number 46 when counting in 5s

    1) because we didn`t know who was he.
    2) because he wants to makes orphans happy.
    3)because they cant get out of the egg
    4) because when the children sleep they cant see.
    5) I think dreams from egg will fly away.

    I would like to be in Harry Potter book
    I would be a wizard and Harry Potter’s best friend.

    I will not say 46 when I will count in 5s
    10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60

      Well done!

      I think you would be an amazing wizard. Harry Potter is one of my favourite book series.
      Good choice!

      Miss Duncan
