Making learning irresistible

Home Learning Week Beginning 20th April 2020

Friday 24th April

 It's Friday again children! We are so proud of how you are all coping with the home learning. Well done!

Today's lessons are maths, literacy and Design Technology.

Have a safe and happy weekend.

Mrs Lewthwaite and Miss Wilson

Design Technology

At school we tasted different breads and fillings. It's now time to design and make your sandwich. You can do this anytime over the weekend and it might be a good idea if you ask an adult to help you prepare lunch for the whole family. 

Try and be creative and use some of the fillings we tried in school, such as tuna and sweetcorn, chicken curry or cheese savoury and try to use some different breads too, such as pitta, wraps or baguette. 

Please take a photo of your sandwich and stick it into your home learning book.


Thursday 23rd April

Happy Thursday Year 2!

I hope you all enjoyed completing the Earth Day activities yesterday! I've really enjoyed having phone calls with some of you over the past few days and I can't wait to speak to more of you over the next week or so. We've got some Literacy, Maths and Topic for you to do today so keep smiling and keep working hard!

I also want to share this half term's Living and Learning statement with you for you to reflect on for the next few days and over the weekend, when thinking about your home learning. It states that we should be "Generous for the good of others, and they take pride in their own work." So please make sure you are sharing kind words and actions, and think about if you are proud of your home learning work. You should try and keep the same standards at home as you do in school :) 

Keep smiling!

We are still focusing on time for the next couple of days, but today we are focusing on comparing durations of time. Think about how you can compare different parts of the day, for example, does it take you longer to brush your teeth than ittakes you to get dressed?

Complete the tasks below in your home learning books please.


Chronological understanding: Toy’s in the late 20th Century

A century is a hundred years long. The 20th Century started in 1901 and ended in 2000. In this lesson we will look at toys that were played with from 1950’s to 2000. These are toys your parents and grandparents may have played with.

Please use the links below to research online and complete the tasks on the document.

Wednesday 22nd April

Good morning Year 2!

Today is a super exciting day as it is World Earth Day, so we've created a little something for you to work on for most of the day! Below is a document with lots of different activities on, and what we would like you do to is try and complete a task from each colour group if you can! If you can't quite do an activity all 5 colours, then try and do activities from at least 3 colour groups. 

Make the most of the sunshine today and be thankful for the beautiful Earth that we live on!

Tuesday 21st April

Welcome to another sunny day … I hope!

Please try and add something to the Purple Mash blog today, if you haven't already done so. Todays lessons are Maths, Literacy and RE.


Try and complete these tasks in your home learning books please. When you've finished, you could try and challenge yourself with the push it below!


Monday 20th April

Good morning Year 2!

It's the start of another Home Learning week and we all should be ready and raring to learn! Please find your tasks for today below!

Make sure you're keeping fit as well (I'm loving Joe Wicks PE lessons in the mornings!)

We are still looking at time this week so I hope you did your activities last week. Today we are looking at Hours and Days! Remember to use the Teaching Clock that Mrs Lewthwaite gave you last week (I've put the link below for you with the activities).

Teaching Clock


What are Microhabitats? 

Please read the PowerPoint on Microhabitats before completing the activity. Last week you should have done some exploring for habitats in your gardens and around the area near your homes. This week, we are looking a little closer at smaller habitats called Microhabitats. Many minibeasts live in microhabitats, so I would like you to try and find a microhabitat and then create a tally chart for the amount of insects you see! (Use the minibeasts survey example below to help you.)

I also want you to think about the question in the PowerPoint. Do all minibeasts like living in the same habitats? Write the answer you come up with in your home learning book.
