Good Morning Year 2!

Happy Friday!laugh


I’m so excited to see some of you come back to school for a few days over the next couple of weeks!


If you aren’t in school, don’t worry, I’ll continue to upload the home learning as usual on the class page so you can take part in the activities. For those who are coming back to school, the days you aren’t here then you can also complete the class page work just like you usually wouldblush


I hope you all have a lovely weekend,

Miss Hill




WRITING: Write a book review about the story ‘Prince Cinders’. You can create your own in your exercise books or use the template below!  


EXTRA CHALLENGE: You may also want to complete another activity from the tasks yesterday!



MATHS: Multiplication Blocks – calculate the answers for each x table question, add the three numbers together and write your answer in the bear (or in your exercise books)



Extension (optional activity) – Multiplication and Division Word Problems



RE: Pentecost – Watch the two videos below…

Discuss with an adult - How did the Holy Spirit change the disciples on the Day of Pentecost? What do you think were the three most important changes that happened to the disciples in this story?  


Picture your answers and draw three small pictures to show the changes that happened to the disciples. Can you explain why you chose these three drawings? Write a sentence or 2 about the changes to go with the pictures.


Here are some ideas that might help you:

1. The Holy Spirit made the disciples very brave inside and helped them as they told people all about Jesus.

2. The Holy Spirit gave the disciples miraculous powers to heal people.

3. The Holy Spirit made the disciples full of God’s love and made them want to share this with others.
