Good morning Year 2, 


I hope you are all keeping well. 


Mrs T



Here are today's tasks...



>Continue to try either your number bonds or times tables on 'Hit the button'.


>Summer term Week 1- Lesson 3: Measure length


Today we are moving onto measures. 



Click on the following link to access it.


  • 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.


>CHALLENGE:  If your child finds the measures 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.


The main focus is the White Rose Hub sheet as this continues our learning in class. 


For today and tomorrow lets re-visit our tenses which we use in our writing. Lots of us will say them correctly without thinking but when it comes to writing we have to think about our word choices. Today we will remind ourselves about how the tenses work and tomorrow we will focus on the spelling. 


Past, present or future?

When you are writing, you can use words that show if the events have already happened, are happening now or will happen in the future.

  • The past tense is used for things that have already happened.

'He was sticky.'

  • The present tense is used when something is happening now or when something happens regularly.

'He is sticky.'

  • The future tense is used to talk about things that haven't happened yet.

'He will be sticky.

Watch the video and try the quiz.



Click on the following link to watch thew video extract from the book 'Daisy and the trouble with life'. 


I would like you to try activity 1 and 3 today.


Activity 1: Answer questions about the story

See if you can answer these questions

  1. Look at the beginning of the extract. What does Daisy thinks being grounded means?

  2. Where were Daisy’s trainers?

  3. According to the text, who is Gabby?

  4. What did they dig last Saturday?

  5. What is the cat called?

  6. Did the cat do what Daisy wanted it to?

  7. Which animal does Gabby think they should have magicked the cat into?

  8. What two things are Gabby and Daisy going to try next?


Activity 3: Predicting what might happen

Read this other extract from 'Daisy and the Trouble with Life' then do the activity below it.

My mum says if I keep frowning and the wind changes, my face will stay that way. Well, she should have thought of that before she grounded me. It’s totally her fault I can’t go out to play with Gabby and it’s totally her fault I’m having to frown so much.

I mean, just think. If it had been windy this morning when I opened the front door, my face might have turned into the worst frowning face in the world. For ever!

And who would have been to blame?

It wouldn’t have been me.

It wouldn’t have been Gabby.

It would have been Mum! It would have been totally all Mum’s fault. And our front door’s.

OOH dear . . . I need to go some-where again. Back in a minute!

Where do you think Daisy is actually going?

Use the start of the sentences below and see if you can come up with some ideas of where she might be going. Remember, she is grounded.

  • She might be _ _ _ _ _ _

  • She could be _ _ _ _ _ _

  • Maybe she is _ _ _ _ _ _

  • What if she is _ _ _ _ _ _
