Hello Year 2!


I hope you are all having a great week. 


Mrs T



Here are today's tasks...



This is our last focus session on contractions. I hope you are now feeling much more confident with them. 


Please complete the 2nd page of the document attached below. You DO NOT need to do both pages. Also, you don't need to print the sheet out, just write the answers down. 









Please focus on sequencing  and counting in multiples numbers from 0 - 100 and 100 - 0. 



Main session

We will continue to look at money and will now include notes as well as coins. If you can, with permission and the help of a parent, try to look at real notes and coins. You can also look at this document to help you. 


I would then like you to try the sheets that I have attached below. I have put 2 sheets on today as they cover similar learning. The answers are also attached.



Remember, you can either print it, write the answers out or discuss them with a family member.



If your child finds the White Rose sheet fairly easy I have also attached an additional problem solving activity. As that suggests the questions are more tricky, take time and are to extend learning further. They get more difficult as you work through them. The answers are also provided to support you to review the work.




We have been sent this letter from Bury Council about sending letters or postcards to people who may be lonely or self isolating to bring a smile to their face. I thought this would be a lovely idea as it can't be nice for these people and I am sure it will really cheer them up.


This will be our literacy task for today and tomorrow. We will return to our work on Africa from next week. 


You may want to plan what to write today and write it tomorrow. You could also draw a picture (but not of yourself), maybe a rainbow. You can write it in the style of a letter or postcard. I have attached some postcard templates below which may be useful. You could write on one side and draw on the other. If you write a letter you could write it and add a drawing at the bottom. 


Please take a picture of your finished letter/postcard as I would love to see them. Details of where to take/send them are included below. 



Posting Positivity - Guidance for writing your letter


Bury Youth Cabinet together with Bury Grammar school are inviting children and young people to write letters to people in our communities that are isolated during the covid-19 pandemic. The idea is that we can help people to feel less alone in these strange times.


We have some guidelines for your letters:


  • Address your letter “Dear Friend”
  • Sign your letter with your first name and age if you wish but please DO NOT include your surname, address or school. We don’t want people that you don’t know being able to contact you.
  • You may wish to talk about things you have been doing in lockdown or could include a drawing or poem.
  • You may wish to remind the person you are writing to that they are not alone and you are thinking of them at this difficult time.
  • Please make sure that you do not include any personal information about specific clubs that you belong to or other personal details.
  • Once you have written your letter pop it in an envelope and you can post it in one of our boxes at Tesco Prestwich, Tesco Bury or Tesco Ramsbottom.
  • If you are unable to drop your letter at Tesco you can take a photograph of it and email it to


All letters will be collected and vetted by staff at Bury Council before being delivered to people who are isolated and would like to receive them both in residential care homes and those living on their own. Any letters that contain personal information or any inappropriate content will not be used.
