Good morning 2S,

How did you get on with your Science investigation yesterday? I hope you found it fun! I'm sure you'll love the Art work that I've planned for you for this afternoon, too.


Work hard on your Maths and English this morning. You're all great at calculations and I'm sure you'll be interested in finding out about living on the International Space Station. Would you like to be an astronaut when you grow up? If not, what would you like to be?


Start with Joe Wicks by following this link

and try to include some extra physical activity as well. If we were at school, Wednesday would be a P.E. day and of course, you'd have your play times and lunch time too.      There are lots of ideas on this page

or have you looked through the Playground games ideas yet? Here's the link: 

Danny Herman hopes that your parents will remember some of these games from their childhoods too.

Spelling work

How did you get on yesterday with to, two and too? Which one is the number? 


I always remember that two and twenty both start with tw.


When you say 'too' you can make the oo sound long as in 'I'm too hot!'

Remember that it also means the same as 'as well' as in 'I'll have a side salad with my lunch too.'


In Yorkshire, people often get confused with they (people) and there (place). We need to say them clearly and also write them correctly.


For each of these sentences, decide if it is they (people) or there (place).


Here are the answers:

To make life even more confusing, there are three homophones: there, their and they're.


Here they are being used correctly in sentences:


I'll set you a quick task at the start of tomorrow's work to see if you can use these homophones correctly. I know that they're tricky, but they're so important.



Here's the Powerpoint about living on the ISS.

Use the PowerPoint to make your notes. Retrieve the information carefully, making sure that you copy spellings correctly. 


How did you get on with the addition work yesterday? I'll bet you were whizzy! Did you do lots of questions on the Mental Maths Train Game? It's great practice for you.

Let's start today's work with a Flashback as usual. Don't forget to press 'Play' quickly and then click to reveal the answers, but only when you're ready.

Here are today's worksheets. When it says use Base 10, you can count back for the first two and then use column subtraction after that.

Here's today's Problems of the Day:

Before you play today's game, take a look at this vocabulary poster:


These are the options you'll need to select today:



Topic Work:

Today in topic we are going to be doing some art work.

I have a couple of suggestions for you. You can choose one of them or have a go at both - it's up to you! 

The first idea is to make cardboard aliens; I’m sure you will enjoy making them.


Materials required to make Cardboard Tube Aliens:

  • Cardboard Tube
  • Coloured craft paper in a bright colour like green.
  • Black and white craft paper (If you haven't got coloured paper, just use felt tips or paint.)
  • Coloured pom-poms
  • Googly eyes or you could just use paper
  • Pipe cleaner or lollipop sticks
  • Glue and scissors



Here’s the second idea:      A Paper Plate Flying Saucer

Resources you will need:

  • 2 paper plates
  • 1 small plastic cup
  • Silver paint or tinfoil
  • Craft jewels or shiny sweet wrappers
  • Glue or selotape
  • Newspaper
  • String for hanging

I'd love to see photos of your flying saucers, too.


Have fun!


See you tomorrow

Love from

Mrs Stansfield xxx
