PSHE RWI Maths Break Times Tables Practise English Lunch Computing Story Time Computing Reading

Good Morning!

Super work yesterday Year 2. You sure know how to put a smile on our faces with all of your beautiful work.


8:50 – 9.30



Over the last few weeks in PSHE we have been learning about keeping safe. We have looked at online safety as well as how to cross the road safely. Can anyone remember the important steps you must take when you cross the road?


Today we will be learning about how to stay safe at home and how to stay safe around medicine. Now more than ever, we are spending long periods of time at home, where there are substances which are dangerous to us. We are sure that your parents and guardians have already told you about these items, such as bleach and washing powder. It is incredibly important that we do not touch or mess with hazardous items, as they can be harmful to us. We will also be learning about medicine, who can give it to us and when we should take it. In the resources section of the class webpage there is a PowerPoint all about medicines and harmful substances which we would like you to read. Once you have read it, we would like you to create a poster all about keeping safe around medicine and harmful substances. The poster must include important facts and colourful pictures. We are excited to see what you created so please send them over to us on class dojo.





Your task for today is to complete the RWI lesson for Set 3 sound ‘i-e’. Click on the link below and select Set 3 sound ‘i-e’ lesson.

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





Today in Maths we are going to continue looking at fractions. We are still concentrating on halves, thirds and quarters.

When looking at a fraction remember:

The denominator (the number on the bottom) is the number of parts which make a whole.

So, ¼ we have 4 parts which make a whole.

The numerator (the number on the top) is how many parts of the whole we have.

So, ¼ we have 1 out of 4. 1 part of the 4 parts.

If we were looking at finding a fraction of a shape, first we need to see how many parts the shape is split into. This is the denominator (the bottom number)

If the shape is split into 4 we have 4 equal parts that make the whole shape.

If we have to shade in 2/4 of the shape. The numerator (the number on the top) shows us we need to shade in 2 parts out of the 4 parts.

We have attached a PowerPoint on our class page which we will be using in the online lesson.

Our activity for today is on the class page. We would like you to either print out or make your own spinner using fractions. You could always use a dice and each number could be a different fraction.

The fraction you land on is the fraction of the shapes on the next page you need to shade in.


10.55 – 11.10



11.10 – 11.35

Times table Practise


Today we would like you to go to the link below and play ‘Mental Maths Train. Remember to concentrate on your 2, 5 and 10 times tables and that you are confident before moving on to any of the other ones.


11.35 – 12.25



In English today we are going to continue looking at diary entries. Today we are going to look at writing our own diary entry pretending we are a pirate, argh!

Last week we looked at all of the different sentence types we could use in our diary entry from exclamation to statements. We also looked at writing our own diary entry from what happened the day before.

Today we are going to plan our diary entry based on a day in a life of a pirate. There is an example with some fabulous ideas on our class page.


When looking at the diary entry example we need to look at the introduction, how did the diary entry start?


We can see that this pirate has started theirs from when they woke up and how they woke up, by the crew singing rude sea shanties on the deck. How would you wake up as a pirate?

We then need to look into what happened.


Here the pirate talks about scrubbing the deck. We would also like you to describe how you are feeling. So if I was scrubbing the deck I would feel frustrated as it was dirty and I had only cleaned it yesterday.

Look how this pirate has used time conjunctions at the start of each sentence. A time conjunction is a word describing the time something is happening. This can be first, next, then, last, etc. How many time conjunctions can you think of?


Once you have planned your first idea of what happened and how you felt we would then like you to write another thing that happened and how you felt then.


For example:

The captain shouted at us on the big, cold deck for not being scary enough. I am really scared of the captain. He makes me want to cry with fear. He shouts so loud.


You are then going to write your ending. This pirate has described what they did last and where they are writing the diary entry from.



Finally can you list the time conjunctions and adjective you could use in your diary entry ready to write it on Wednesday.


12.25 – 1.25



1.25 – 2.05 (this task will continue at 2.20)



Today in computing we are going to continue looking at algorithms.

Algorithms are instructions. We have already practised writing them and had a go at following them to make sure they worked.


Today we would like you to go on the link below:


This takes you to a game where we are going to create algorithms to get a character from one place to another.



We need to get the character from the green arrow to the red sign. You do this by dragging the correct instruction from the menu to the instruction section.



Once you have the instructions complete press ‘Run Program’ and see if you were right.



2.05 – 2.15

Mrs Hodgetts Reads

As part of ‘National Story Telling Week’ Mrs Hodgetts is going to treat you to one of her favourite stories. Get comfy and enjoy the story.



2.15 – 2.45



2.45 – 3.05

Home Reader


We now have access to Bug Club. This allows you to read a variety of books at the correct book band you are on at school. We have allocated your book bands but once you have read all of the books within your current book band it will automatically move you up to the next one. We can’t wait to see how many book bands you move up.

Remember to start each story by using the read to me button and then read the story yourself. After each story make sure you answer the questions at the back of the book to help with your comprehension skills.
