Friday 23rd October

Good morning 2S,

It's our last day of home-learning before you get a break from your school work. I hope you've enjoyed doing it and I've had messages from parents telling me that they've been enjoying it, too!


If you get to the very end of today's tasks, you will find a surprise. Our lovely Miss Day in Reception has helped me to sort it out for you!


As usual, we're starting with Phonics.




Here are the answers:


Here's a puzzle activity for you to do.

For most of the sounds, you're looking for the initial sound of the word in the picture.

If there is a line, you're looking for a long vowel sound.

If there is a star, you're looking for a split digraph vowel sound.


Here are some examples:


Here's the activity and the answers (because it's quite tricky!)

You can also work out the missing split digraph words in these sentences:



In today's lesson, you will have a chance to practise lots of your skills, starting with your times tables.


Most of you still need to make sure that you can complete all of the 2x, 5x and 10x Silver Awards and 2x, 5x and 10x Gold Awards, completing each strip in under 1 minute 20 seconds.



I have also attached the 3x, 4x 9x and 11x tables for those who are further ahead on the scheme.

I would also like you to do a Year 2 Mental Arithmetic Test. The answers are on the last page so no peeping!



Here are your last two Victorian school days photograph tasks to do:


All that's left for you to do today is to write out a neat copy of the letter that you have written.

You will need to start with the address and try to remember how you started your letter last Friday, then copy out the paragraphs that you have written at home this week.

Don't forget to say who has written the letter at the end.


Read through mine for some extra reading practice before you start.


You can use any lined paper that you have at home. If you are lucky enough to have a printer, you can use the border like mine:



Please work through these tasks about Queen Victoria on the BBC website.

You can also do any extra research if you wish.


Write at least 5 facts about Queen Victoria.

You can decorate your work, too.





You have now finished all of this week's work.


If you would like to, please bring it in on Tuesday 3rd November. It would be great if you could separate it by subject so put all of the Maths together and all of the Reading together etc. I definitely can't wait to read your letters to Reception.


You will also need to bring in your blue Homework folders, your Yellow Spelling folders and your Reading books and Reading Records.



Don't forget that our Inspiration Day has been rearranged for Tuesday 3rd November too so it will be great to see as many of you as possible in Victorian clothes.


And now, as promised, here I am pretending that I haven't actually got an empty classroom:


Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

See you very soon.


Enjoy the holidays, particularly after your isolation ends on Tuesday.


Love from


Mrs Stansfield
