Hello everyone, 


I hope the shoe lace lock down challenge is going well. If you are finding it hard (it is, so don't worry!) and keep practicing. 


There is so much baking going on at the moment and all of your creations look very tasty. 


Keep up the hard work Year 2!


Mrs T


Please find today's tasks below...



To start, go to Phonics Play and practice tricky words and speed sounds.

Now I would like you to think back to a few weeks ago where we reviewed the past tense. Below is a document where you need to turn the verbs into the past tense. Read through the spelling patterns at the top first to remind yourself of these.



You don't need to print the sheet, you can just write out the verbs in the past tense.







Practice your number bonds and doubles on Hit the Button.


Main session

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

Summer Week 3 Lesson 4: Add and subtract ones 

Many of you should find this fairly straight forward but take care to read the questions as it is easy to make mistakes when we think some questions are straightforward.

  • Please watch the video to support your understanding.
  • Try the sheet below.
  • Check your work against the answers (attached below).


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.




Today, we are having a grammar focus on nouns. 


A noun is a person, place or object. Nouns can be 'common nouns' or 'proper nouns'. 


proper noun is the name of a particular person, place, organisation, or thing. Proper nouns begin with a capital letter. Examples are ' Margaret', ' London', and 'the United Nations'.


common noun is the generic name for a person, place, or thing in a class or group. Unlike proper nouns, a common noun is not capitalised unless it either begins a sentence or appears in a title



Attached is a sheet to complete- I want you to try and think of an example of these nouns that start with each letter of the alphabet. You can start today and come back to these throughout the week. 



I have given you quite a variation of work today so these are optional additional tasks (but I think you will like them).
