Good Morning Year 2!

I hope you are all wellsmiley


It's finally the weekend! Hopefully we will get a little bit of sunshine over the next couple of days! It's been very wet and miserable this week! I hope you have all enjoyed this week's home learning tasks - don't forget about our class blog on Purple Mash! 


Have a great weekend everyone and keep safe,

Miss Hill 



WRITING: Write a non-chronological report about Dinosaurs. Use the checklist below and the subheadings to help you…


Title: Dinosaurs


Make sure you separate your report into paragraphs:


  1. Introduction
  2. Choose a dinosaur and write a paragraph about your favourite dinosaur – you may also want to do some additional research to help!
  3. Fossils – what are fossils? How are they formed? (I have included some extra information below to help you)
  4. Conclusion – summarise your report (E.g. I hope you have learnt lots about Dinosaurs and enjoyed reading my report)

MATHS: Symmetry

*For this activity you will either need to be able to print the worksheet out or have square paper which you can use to copy/draw out the shapes (I have tried to think of an alternative way to do this task without square paper/printing but you would need the squares for accuracy and it is one of the areas of maths not yet covered in our home learning)


If you aren't able to do the task above then there is a task below 'describing movement' which can be done instead of or as well as....smiley


EXTENSION: Recap – Describing Movement

READING: x1 reading book (15mins daily reading)


TT ROCKSTARS: x15mins practise each day.

Hello everyone! How are you?smiley


I have included an RE task in today’s home learning and will set a new RE task weekly – you don’t have to finish this today, but at some point over the next week see if you are able to give it a go J I have broken the tasks down into smaller chunks to make it a little easier so we shall work on this bit by bit over the next couple of weeks.


Have a super day,

Miss Hill



Firstly, I'd like you to have a little look at the link below. Today, the Duchess of Cambridge will lead an online assembly for the Oak National Academy. The theme of the Duchess’ assembly is ‘spread a little kindness’. I have included the link below that you will need! A recording of the assembly will be available to view on the Oak National Academy website following the eventlaugh

PURPLE MASH: Grammar - Using commas to separate items in a list.


MATHS: 3D Shapes - Complete the table below. Draw and label different real life objects that match the different 3D Shapes.  Use the ‘real life object’ cards to give you some ideas.

ENGLISH: Commas in a list (either print the worksheet below or copy and complete the sentences in your exercise books).    

RE: Christianity


Concept: Holy Spirit - How did the Holy Spirit change the disciples after the Day of Pentecost?


Look at the four pictures below:


What is the one thing all of these pictures need? They all need wind.


Discuss: What does the wind do in each picture? Perhaps it creates movement or gives energy.


Can you draw some pictures of different things that need wind and label them. You can use some of my examples or think of some of your own.
