Home Learning Week 11

Hello Year 2,

Great news everyone you reached 150 books on GetEpic!!! Look at our new badge.


I hope you all had a nice weekend.


Over the next few weeks, school will be having our own sock Olympics. Keep checking the school blog for more information.  It sounds like great fun.


Remember to get in touch to share all the good work you have been doing at home.

Have a good week.


This week’s activities are:




Watch RWI speed sound sessions - If your child has watched all of the sounds and now knows them confidently, please move onto the next set of speed sounds.

RWI Phonics lessons at home
Free Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons on
Facebook and YouTube for children to watch at home; three short Speed Sound lessons every day.

  • Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30 am (Mrs Wright's and Mrs Atherton's RWI groups)
  • Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00 am (Mrs Kubiak’s RWI group)

If you normally complete Set 3 Speed sounds please have a look at your complex speed sounds chart and choose a sound to revise. You should be able to confidently say and spell words using that sound and include them in your sentences.


Reading and Writing

Continue with books on Bug Club.

This week's Get Epic book is ‘Nonnie and I’. Click on the link below and type in the code ewr5265,


The activities to complete are:-

  • Complete the quiz at the end.
  • Write a diary entry for how the girl feels after her first day back at school. Although she was nervous at first, she has made friends with another child called Adanna. Remember that diary entries are personal and have loads of emotive language as the person expresses their feelings. Try to include interesting adjectives, similes, exclamation sentences, words with apostrophes for contraction and remain in the past tense throughout.
  • Write a postcard from Nonnie imagining she has gone travelling around Africa with a herd of giraffes. In the story, the author chose not to give Nonnie a speaking part, so now you can imagine she is able to write and you’re writing a postcard to the girl to keep in touch and let her know what you’re doing and that you’re fine, like a good friend does. Try to include a variety of conjunctions, adverbs, question sentences and words with apostrophes for contraction.
  • Complete a giraffes Fact file

If you would like some additional activities to complete you can continue working through the English lessons on the Oak National Academy or you may wish to work on some BBC Bitesize Daily activities.


In maths, please continue using the White Rose Daily lessons. This week we are learning about measure. I am aware some of you will have already covered this content earlier in the lockdown period. If this is the case, there are alternative lessons to complete.

  • Measure length
  • Compare lengths
  • Four operations with length
  • Compare mass
  • Friday maths challenge

There is a short clip on each lesson and an activity sheets below.


Play maths games on Education City

Remember for any extra maths activities, play some games through top marks website or watch some Jack Hartman maths videos on YouTube.

Come and See (RE)

TOPIC Reconciliation


LEARNING FOCUS 6:      Sign of peace

Jesus has one rule, love God and one another.  In John’s gospel Jesus says,

“My commandment is this; love one another, just as I love you.”                                                Based on John 15: 12

When people go to Mass, just after they have all said the Our Father prayer, they give each other a Sign of Peace to show they follow Jesus’ rule by wanting to be friends with one another and prepare for Holy Communion.  During a community celebration of Reconciliation, we also offer each other a Sign of Peace to show that we are forgiven and that we want to live in love and peace with each other.


Can you describe how Christians follow Jesus’ rule ‘to love God and to love one another’? Describe the consequences of what might happen if you didn’t follow this rule.


Can you using the first letter of the word PEACE make up a prayer or a poem; include reasons why peace is important for Christians?
