Year 2 Home Learning – Wednesday 3rd February

Good morning Year 2!

It’s another day of home learning.

We’ve seen some great work that has been emailed to us, and we’d love to see more.

Remember we have a zoom register at 10.20am every morning. It is important you log in to this on time so that we can say good morning to each other, complete an online activity as well as explaining our work for the day. A link for this has been sent to the parent email you have registered at school. Please email us at the Year 2 email address if you need a new link sending to you.
Please bring paper and a pencil/pen to the zoom register.

Please remember to comment on the blog when you have completed your tasks, and to email us your completed work so we can see what you have been doing and support you if needed. Work can be emailed to
Have a great day and we will be waiting for you when we can all go back to school together!

Miss Duncan, Miss Battams and the rest of the Year 2 team.


Here is today’s home learning tasks

English – Reading

Read the letter that has been provided. The text for you to read is in the video and it will also be read out to you.

Have a go at answering these questions about the text. Remember your answers should be in full sentences.

How do you think Hermia is feeling when she writes the letter and why?

How do you think her Dad will feel reading this letter and why?

What do you think might happen next after Egeus gets this letter?

How do you think Demetrius would feel if he knew what Hermia had written?




English – Writing

Take a look at the four characters from the play. We have learnt that they all have links to each other.

Can you think about how each of the characters would be feeling and why and what each of the characters would be thinking and why. Use the grid to help you record this for each character. There is an example for you on the grid in red.

You should use what you have learnt from the texts this week to help you. You can find these texts on the blog posts from earlier in the week. You may want to have a go at acting out these characters to show what they are thinking and feeling before writing about them. You could send us pictures of you in role as the chracters if you wish.

Watch the video below to hear the instructions repeated.


Here is your phonics lesson for today. The video has been split into four parts just like our lessons are in school. Remember you can pause the video at anytime to give yourself time to work on the tasks.

Warm up: Wiggle your fingers up high, down low, to the side and in front of you.
Stretch your fingers out like fireworks twelve times.
Can you write the following KS1 words at least four times? Remember to leave a finger space.

* clothes


* class


Tick your neatest formation and be proud of your handwriting. Remember, you should be practising writing these words down on paper and not typing them into the blog comments as this will not help develop your handwriting skills.
You can use these letter formations to help you write your letters correctly. This is the Kinetic Letters font that we teach in school.



For RE this term we have been looking at the religion of Islam and some of the importnat parts of life as a Muslim. It is very important we learn to understand other people’s religions and beliefs, even if they are different ot our own.

Use this link to watch two short videos about Hajj. They are from CBBC’s Newsround prgoramme. Both clips are on the same link.

Watch the video below as it will give you a little more information about Hajj and Mecca. You then need to create a poster to encourage people to visit Mecca. You should make it bright and colourful and include many facts about Hajj.



Today’s story is from Mrs Jacox. It is about a little girl who is looking for the good mood she has lost. The story is called The Good Mood Hunt. You’ll notice Mrs Jacox has a special visitor listening to her story.

You will need to click on the link to download it to open the story        The Good Mood Hunt

Our moods and the way we are feeling can change lots especially when things are a little bit different like they are at the moment and that’s normal. We all have days when we feel sad, grumpy, scared, happy, excited and many other moods, and it is important to remember that it is ok to have any of these feelings. We have learnt in school about talking to an adult you trust if you are feeling sad, worried or frightened but, adults also love to hear when you are feeling great too.


Online Reading

We have an online log in which will link to some ebooks that follow our reading scheme in school. These books will allow your child to practice their phonics skills. It is a free resource. You may need to register for a free parent account to access the books.

Follow this link to log in:
Go to Oxford Owl for Home and click on enter site.
This will give you the option to choose a book recommended for your age or you can choose a book from the colour you read at school.
These are all free to read and it would be great if you could read one to someone at home.

Remember to leave us a comment on the blog to share your learning or you can email it to me at
We look forward to seeing your work!

    I feel brave whilst doing scary stuff.

      What kind of things do you think are scary? I think going on rollercoasters is always scary. Even though I love them I still have to find the courage to go on them.
