Good morning Year 2!
We are looking forward to seeing you all back in school soon, but for now we need to keep trying our best with our home learning. There is a little bit of information here that it is important you read, just to refresh yourself on home learning.
1. We will continue to have our live zoom register at 10.20am. Please use the link you used before as this has not changed. If you need this resending, please email us. It is essential you attend this live zoom each morning so that you can say hello to your teachers and friends, and also to find out a little more about the day’s learning. Please bring a paper and soemthing to write with so you can take part in any live learning.
2. It is important you send us your completed work for us to check. You can take a photo of your completed work and email this to us. We can then provide you with individual feedback on your work, and offer any help or support needed. If we do not see your completed work, we are unable to offer praise or help to further your learning with that task. All work should be emailed to:
3. You can also email this address during the day if you need and guidance with the tasks or have any questions about the learning, and we will then be able to help you complete the task. Remember, you can also leave comments on the blog by scrolling down to the bottom of the page. These could be answers to the tasks or questions on the daily blog or you could share your ideas about the learning. We look forward to seeing your work!
Have a great day, and enjoy your home learning!
Miss Battams, Miss Duncan and the rest of the year 2 team.
Read the job advert in the video below. You can also listen to it being read out to you. When you have read the job advert, you should answer the comprehension questions. Your answers should be in full sentences with the correct punctuation and you should use evidence from the text in your answers.
Draw a simple outline of a person. Around the outside of your person, you need to write down all the tasks you need to complete the job you chose on Monday. You can use yesterday’s spider diagram to help you.
On the inside of your person, write down all the charcteristics that a person needs to do that job.
You now need to write three sentences that link the two different ideas together.
For example: A nurse needs to be caring so that they can look after people.
A nurse needs to be hardworking so she can work as part of a team.
A nurse needs to be trustworthy so patients will tell them what is wrong.
Watch the videos below to help you with your phonics learning.
Today we are looking at finding the half of a shape.

Watch this short powerpoint video and listen as Miss Battams explains your task for today.
Handwriting and Spellings
It is important we continue to practice our handwriting to help us to form our letters correctly. We should also practice spelling our Year 2 words to help us with our reading and writing. You can use these letter formations we use in school to help you form your letters correctly when you practise your spellings. You do not need to copy this alphabet out.
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.
1. Warm up your fingers before you start!
Wiggle your fingers up high, down low, to the side and in front of you.
Stretch your fingers out like fireworks twelve times.
2. Can you write the following KS1 words at least four times? Remember to leave a finger space between each one.
3. Tick your neatest formation and be proud of your handwriting.
Reading and Story Time
Here is today’s story read by Miss Battams. The short story is called The Boy Who Cried Wolf and is a fable. This means it is a story with a message to learn.
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 will need to register for a free parent account to access the books. This does not take long to do and is very easy.
