Hello Year 2!


Here are today's tasks...



Continuing with more contraction work.



Have a go at the questions on the powerpoint. 

e.g. I'll ... what was it before? ... I will









Please focus on sequencing  and simple sequencing numbers from 0 - 100 and 100 - 0. 



Main session- MONEY

We are going to move on to looking at money. In Year 1 your learnt the value of different coins and how they look. Firstly, I would like you to remind yourself of the value of the coins. If you can, sit with a parent or brother/sister and with permission get some coins to look at. It is much easier to see the coins in real life than in a picture. 


Have a look at the key vocabulary and the coins and notes. 


You can click on these links below to go to Espresso to watch some videos to remind you about the different coins. 

You may need to put in the username and password that you used on Monday.

username: student18273

password: thomas


You can then play on these games if you want to.



Afterwards I would like you to try the sheet attached below and check your work against the answers.


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.




For our literacy work we will continue to look at Africa. Today I would like you to choose one African country and create a fact file or mind map about that country. You may like to choose one of the countries mentioned in yesterday's videos. 


Here is the link again to those videos. 


You may want to think about:

  • Country name
  • Largest city
  • Population (number of people who live there)
  • Currency
  • Language spoken
  • Famous landmarks (you may like to draw some)
  • Famous people from there
  • Any other facts 





Forces are pushes and pulls in a particular direction.

Watch this animation where Seymour Science and friends look at basic forces.


All forces move something.

Push - moves something away from you eg. a swing in a playground

Pull - moves something towards you eg. closing a door

Twist - moves something either away from or towards you eg. opening or closing a bottle

The harder you apply one of these forces, the further the object will move.


Activity 1

Match up the forces

Drag and drop to match the images to the type of force they are showing.


Activity 2

Push, pull or twist?

Go around your home and ask your children if they can find any examples where they need to push, pull or twist something.
