Hello Year 2!


I hope you are having a good week. 


Here are today's tasks...




Continue to practice your times tables. Remember by the end of Year 2 children should know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables and their related division facts when given in any order. If your child is confident with these they should move on to their 3 and then 4 times tables.


Main session

SUMMER: Week 4 Lesson 2

Complete the lesson on the White Rose hub website (see links below)



  • Please watch the video to support your understanding.
  • Try the sheet which will be sent to you on Class Dojo.

White Rose Hub initially offered all documents for free but now only offer the videos. We have subscribed as a school so we will still have access to the sheets but I will be adding these and the answer document to our class story each day as it is not a public site. 

  • Check your work against the answers (added to class story).


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 spent time looking ta plants; their parts and labelling them and what they need to grow. I have also seen some lovely plant pictures on Purple Mash. Today we will begin to look at evergreen and deciduous trees; what those terms mean and some examples of them. 


This video looks at the differences. There are also lots of videos on the BBC page underneath it that cover work we have just been doing that you may wish to watch. 


Next I'd like you to watch the 'Types of Trees' video.


I know you all love a song to help learn facts. It is a song but it isn't as good as the continents or oceans songs- sorry! 


I would then like you to complete the activity sheets below. The song lyrics for the video are also there as they may help you. 

  • Complete activity 1 (the answers are there to check against afterwards)
  • If you did well in that you may like to try activity sheet 2 which is a little more tricky as the answers aren't in the video, it is asking you to apply the new knowledge. 


You do not need to print the sheets out. You could screen shot and write on if you use an iPad or just number each tree and write E or D next to it. 







Today I'd like us to link literacy to our science work. You have 2 options to choose from, or you can do both. 


1. Create a poster/fact file explaining what evergreen and deciduous trees are. (What are the differences? What does each do? How do they look/how do you identify which is which?) 

You might draw an example tree for each or what a leaf could look like and then explain they key details about each (remember to use the word 'because')


2. Complete the comprehension about these trees which is based on the song. The sheet and the answers to check against are below.
