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.
- 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 something 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 Duncan, Miss Battams, Miss Mann and the rest of the year 2 team.
Here are today’s home learning tasks.
Here is Miss Mann explaining today’s phonics task. Please pause or rewatch anything if needed.
Here is Miss Mann explaining todays reading task. Todays reading and writing task is based on a poem called ‘On the Ning Nang Nong’ by Spike Milligan.
Once you have watched the video, create a spider diagram answering these four questions:
- What do you notice about the poem?
- What silly words can you hear?
- What do you like about the poem?
- What do you not like about the poem?
Here is Miss Mann with todays writing task. We are completing another task based on the poem ‘On the Ning Nang Nong’ by Spike Milligan.
For todays writing task, we want you to re-write a small chunk of the poem. You do not have to change every word but try to have a go at finding new rhyming words that fit into the poem.
You can challenge yourself by changing the object/animal and the rhyming word. This is all explained in the video.
Try to write out the whole poem on paper if you can!
Be as creative as you like. We cannot wait to see your poems, do not forget to email us your work!
Here is Miss Mann explaining today’s maths work. We are still working on 1/4, but we are moving on from shapes.
Complete the part whole models below. For a challenge, some of the models only have the part given. Draw out counters to help you if needed. Pause and rewatch the video to help if needed.
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.
- 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.
Here is Miss Mann explaining todays science lesson. We are looking at food chains.
Watch the video for more information.
Here is the reading to help with today’s task.

Use the reading to help answer these questions, as stated in the video you must answer in full sentences.
All living things need……….. to survive.
