Good morning 2S and welcome back to the first day of our new half-term.

Have you had a good holiday? Many of you will also have celebrated Eid, too. I know that your celebrations will not have been the same as they would normally be, but I hope that you still managed to enjoy them.The weather has certainly been kind to us, hasn't it?


I'm back in school now as some of the Year 6 children are here. I don't know when Year 2 will be able to return, but I will be continuing to set your daily tasks on line.


Let's get started with today's tasks, starting with a Joe Wicks workout:

I did it every day in the holidays, as well, did you?



Just before the holidays we did lots of work on plurals. I hope you can still remember the rules:


And the rule that matches the spellings that you're about to be tested on:

It's time for your spelling test now. Remember that your score will be out of 20 because you will need to write both the singular and the plural of each noun.


Your new spellings are the days of the week and the months of the year.

These will link to our work in English and Topic about the seasons.


In English, for the next four weeks, we’re going to be focusing on poetry. Each week, we will look at a different season.

This week, we are starting with Spring.


Our first poem is called ‘Spring is here!’ and we will be learning about rhyming words.


Before we look at the poem, start with these interactive activities:



Here is our first Spring poem: 'Spring is here!

Don't scroll down until you've decided what the missing words should be!

Can you write your own pairs of rhyming couplets using words from your list?

Here are my examples:

I fell from the tree when I swung on the rope,

So I had to have a bath with bubbles and soap.


For my wife I bought a diamond ring,

But just wrapped it up with paper and string!













As always, I'd like you to start your Maths session with a Flashback. Over the next two weeks these will be testing you on time, measurement and fractions - all things that you have done before, but things that are so important. There will also be a 2D or 3D shape in the top right hand corner - can you name them?

I'm sure that you will whiz through today's video, but before you do think really carefully about these questions, as these are the ones that some people get caught out by. What number or symbol is needed in each gap?

___ x 10 = 10

100 ÷ 10 = ___

10 x 0 = ___

10 __ 10 = 1

10 __ 10 = 100

Year 2 - Week 6 - Lesson 1 - The 10 times-table

This is "Year 2 - Week 6 - Lesson 1 - The 10 times-table" by White Rose Maths on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

Check your answers:

1 x 10 = 10

100 ÷ 10 = 10

10 x 0 = 0

10 ÷  10 = 1 

10 x 10 = 100


Here are the worksheets:

I'm sure you've whizzed through those sheets so here is a full page of problems for you to do:


This week we are going to look at a story by one of my favourite authors, Julia Donaldson. I am sure that you will have heard lots of stories written by her before. One of my favourites is The Gruffalo! Here is your task:



I know that you have all heard of Jesus, but what do you already know about him? 


Jesus lived more than 2000 years ago but he is still remembered by millions of people today because of the things he did during his life and what happened after his death.

Today, we are going to read the story of his life. Please click on the presentation below:


Can you put these events from Jesus' life in order? You can use the presentation to help you or to check it afterwards.

Click below if you can print these out.


There's a great song to link with this week's work on Spring in this Wow and Wonder folder. It's called: 'It's a Spring Thing'.


You'll also love 'Everywhere Around Me' in the same folder. This links with our RE work on Creation that we did just before the holidays.


I hope you've had a great first day back.

See you tomorrow.

Love from 

Mrs Stansfield
