Good Morning!

Another brilliant day yesterday Year 2! It is so lovely to see all of the hard work you are completing at home.


8:50 - 9:30



Today in SPaG we will be learning all about contracted words, contracted words are used and written in everyday English. They are short words that are made by putting two words together. The letters that are removed are replaced with an apostrophe, for example:


Original word

Contracted word

I am


Do not


Has not



We would like you complete the apostrophe for missing letters activity on page 16 of your KS1 Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling workbook. When you have finished that task please could you turn the words below into contracted words, remember to use an apostrophe in place of the missing letters.


He has

She has

We are

Can not

Will not





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


9:55 - 10:55



Today in Maths we will subtracting a 2-digit number from another 2-digit number using the column method. The example below shows how to lay out the question using the column style, remember that when you are writing these in your Maths books to only put one number in each square. The examples below do not require any exchanging which means that the numbers at the top are bigger so the number below can be taken from them.

Some subtractions will require you to exchange, this happens when the number on the bottom is bigger than the one at the top. You will need to ask your neighbour if you can exchange a ten.

We would like you to answer questions 1 – 8 which do not require any exchanging. If you are finding these easy then please move on to the questions 9 – 16 which require



  1. 67 – 33 =
  2. 89 – 46 =
  3. 74 – 12 =
  4. 55 – 23 =
  5. 59 – 38 =
  6. 99 – 45 =
  7. 36 – 28 =
  8. 75 – 11 =
  9. 36 – 17 =
  10. 53 – 36 =
  11. 47 – 29 =
  12. 82 – 25 =
  13. 44 – 17 =
  14. 86 – 79 =
  15. 60 – 28 =
  16. 52 – 33 =


When you are exchanging remember that if the number on the floor is bigger you need to go next door!

In English today you will need your Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling book and turn to page 5.Folloing yesterdays lesson looking at verbs, today we are going to be looking at ing' verbs. Remember a verb is a word used to describe an action, it is a 'doing' word. 

Ing verbs show that something is happening or was happening.


For example:

I am playing with the basketball.

Playing is our ing verb showing what is happening now.


We have been learning all about China. 

Learning is our ing verb becuase it tells us what was happening.


Once you have completed Page 5, we would then like you to write sentences using the following words turning them into ing verbs:
