Comprehension RWI Maths Break Time Times Tables English Lunch Newsround RE Story Time RE Reading


Good Morning Year 2. Well done for another day of home learning yesterday, you’re all doing an amazing job.

8:50 – 9:30



We will be starting our day off with comprehension so you will need your CGP comprehension book 2 for this activity. When you complete a comprehension there are some basic skills that we would like you to remember, they are:

  1. Make sure you read the text twice.
  2. Read everything on the page, including titles and subheadings.
  3. Look back at the text when answering the questions as it will help you find the answer.
  4. Ask an adult to explain the meaning of new or unfamiliar words.


We would like you to read the ‘Camping Trip’ on page 9 and answer the questions.  If you have time we would also like you to read ‘Tea with Aunty Mabel’ on page 10 and answer the questions, don’t worry if you don’t manage to complete both before RWI that’s fine.


9:30 – 9:55



Today in RWI we would like you to complete the lesson for set 3 sound ‘oa’. Click on the link below and select the Set 3 sound ‘oa’ lesson.

RWI Lesson

Make sure you click on Set 3 sounds on the playlist and then on Set 2 speed sounds with Rose. When you have finished watching the Set 3 sound video please feel free to watch the Set 3 spelling video too.


9:55 – 10:55



In Maths today we will starting a new topic all about time. We will begin the lesson by recapping what we already know and I will be asking you to tell me the time that is represented on the clock that I will be holding.


The picture of the clock below shows one o’clock. We know that it is one o’clock because the small hand which represents the hours is pointing to the number one and the big hand that represents the minutes is point to the 12.



On the clock below we know that the time is half past one, we know this because the small hand which represents the hour is pointing just past the one and the big hand that represents the minutes is pointing at the six.




We will spend some time recapping o’clock, half past and quarter past the hour before completing the time activity in the resources section of the class webpage. For those of you who feel confident with telling the time to o’clock and half past we would like you to complete the quarter to and quarter past activity. Those of you who would like to keep practising telling the time to o’clock and half past please download that activity sheet.

Times Tables


For the next 25 minutes we would like you to practise your times tables by logging onto Times Tables Rock Stars. The aim of Times Tables Rock Stars is to improve fluency and accuracy, so don’t worry if the questions feel like they are coming at you quickly, the more you practise the more fluent and quicker you will become. If you cannot find your log in then please drop us a message on class dojo and we will send it over to you.

11:35 – 12:25



In our English lesson we will be continuing with our Talk for Writing unit called The Magical Teaching Box. By now you should be very familiar with the text as you have read it multiple times, but if you would like to read it before our online lesson at 11:35 then you can.

We will be working on page 11 together which is about matching a word to its meaning. Often when we are reading we encounter new words and we do not know their meaning, one way of understand what a word means is to read the whole sentence to see if it gives us any clues. For example:


The gingerbread man fled away from the house as quickly as he could.


The word fled may not be a word we are that familiar with but by looking at the whole sentence

we can work out that the word fled means to run away or escape.


Another way of finding out the meaning of a word is to use a dictionary, if you have one at home please use it for this lesson. We can also use the online dictionary in the link below:


Online Dictionary


Once we have matched all of the words we would like you to put each of them into a new sentence, you will be able to find examples of this on page 11 in your booklet.



In your booklet you will have enough space to write 6 of the words into your own sentences, you will have to use your blue book to write the other sentences. We would then like you to go back to page 10 of the Talk for Writing booklet and put all the words into alphabetical order.

We would like you to catch up with the daily news so please click on the link below and watch Newsround to see what has been going on in the world.



1:30 – 2:05



Last week in RE we were learning all about the Seder Meal and the significance of each of the items on the plate. We found out that the meal is eaten by Jewish people during the festival of Passover.


Today we will be learning more about Moses and his role in freeing the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. In the resources section on the class webpage you will find a PowerPoint all about Moses and Passover which we would like you to read. Once you have read the PowerPoint we would like you to download the sequencing cards from the resources section, you will need to read each scene, cut them out and put them into the correct order.


2:05 – 2:20
