Week beginning 1st June 2020

The most recent home-learning grid can be found below. These activities do not rely on technology - simply view on your mobile phone and take a screenshot. 



Monday 1st June


LO: To make a number.

The number of the week this week is 46

Use the challenge grid below and find the answers to the questions linked to 46.





Watch and join in with Mrs Farrar's spelling lesson for the sound 'ir'.


LO: To write a recount of what I have done during lockdown. 

Watch Miss Clough’s life in lockdown video on the year 2 page of the website.

Think about all of the things that you have done during lockdown, discuss these with a sibling or grown up then write your ideas in sentences. Try to expand your sentences using a range of conjunctions such as; when, if, but, because, so.

Here is an example of what you could write;

During lockdown, we have been playing in the paddling pool when it has been sunny. I have enjoyed spending more time at home but I have missed school.


HLO: To explore the difference between past and present.


Talk to a grown up and ask what school and life was like when they were your age.

Watch this clip which shows you what school was like for children in Victorian times (1837-1901)

Think about how this and how your grown up has described their life as a child compares to your life now and create either a poster using pictures to show the differences or make a video to show the differences.




Tuesday 2nd June



LO: To solve problems.

You have a tricky job today. Not only do you need to solve the problems, you need to find the information that we do not need - it is trying to trick us! Cross out the information that you do not need and show your working out to solve the problem. 




Challenge: Can you create your own word problem including a piece of information that we do not need?





LO: To use contractions.

Contractions are words which are created by joining two words together and using an apostrophe for the missing letters.
For example; can not in the contracted form is can’t and do not in the contracted form is don’t.

Can you create a contraction poster like the one below, thinking of your own contractions?




Challenge: Now try to put some of the contractions into sentences.



PELO: To complete Miss Roxby’s challenge.


Have a look on the school website for Miss Roxby’s challenge for this week. It is on the Health and Well-being tab on the Home Learning page.


See if a grown up or sibling could video you doing the challenge so that it can go on the year 2 gallery on the website for your friends to see!

Wednesday 3rd June



LO: To revise times tables.

Create your own multiplication wheels like the ones below. All of the numbers are multiplied by the number in the middle of the circle and your answer goes in the outside segment of the circle.




LO: To identify homophones.

Homophones are words that sounds the same but have different meanings.
For example, see and sea, their and there, through and threw.


Watch the video to help you understand what a homophone is.


Create a poster showing different homophones and draw a little picture next to each word to show the meaning. 




SLO: To explore the properties of materials.

Today we are going to investigate whether objects sink or float.

Find 10 different objects from around the house.

First, make a prediction as to whether you think they will sink or float.

I predict that ______________ will float/sink because ________________.

When making your prediction, think about the material that your object is made out of.

With a grown up, fill the sink or bath and test your objects one by one to see whether they sink or float. Take photos of each to show what happened.


The clip below shows you how you might carry out your own experiment.




Thursday 4th June



LO: To revise addition.

Play this game with a sibling or grown up. See who can get 4 in a row first.





LO: To use suffixes. 

A suffix is the part of a word at the end which is added to give the word a different meaning. For example; play with the suffix –ful becomes playful.

Draw a table split into 5 columns like the one below with each suffix at the top of the column; -ment, -ness, -ful, -less, -ly.


I have given you one example in each column to help.


Challenge: Now put your words with suffixes into sentences.






PSHELO: To think about what helps the environment and what harms the environment.

Today we would like you to create a poster to show what we should do to help the environment and what we need to stop doing to help the environment.

Here is an example of what you may create; 


Friday 5th June



LO: To revise all four operations.

Your challenge today is to create a ‘This is me’ poster all about yourself using number sentences. I have done the first 3 boxes of mine to show you an example.





LO: To extend sentences.


Think of an object – this can be anything at all.

You are then going to add bits to your sentence on each line like the one below. Mine is about a turtle and each time I add some extra information using the question at the side.




ALO: To create a seaside scene.


Using any kind of medium, you would like – paint, crayons, chalk etc. create a seaside scene.
