Good afternoon all. We will start our online learning tomorrow and all lessons will be accessed via google meet. You should already be members of the Year 2 2021-22 meet space (It’s the Year 1 meet space renamed!). If you have any problems, please let us know. Packs are either being sent home with siblings or being delivered to you this afternoon/evening. The resources should all be in the correct order.
Wednesday 22nd September
English power point story. Please read this before the lesson if you haven’t already.
We are going to use the sheet in the pack to retell the story. Please use the success criteria below. In Year 2 we expect all the children to include everything on the going for green list and encourage them to go for gold (for a double tick!)
Maths video to watch after our lesson before completing p38 in booklets.
Art videos to watch before the Google meet session at 1pm.
Please note: Children in school on Monday have already watched these but may still like to watch them again.
Your task is to design your own food plate collage and then make it with the resources in your pack (and some other bits you have at home!) Here are some from last year!
Thursday 23rd September
English- Mr Wolf’s Pancakes
I will be sharing this story as part of the lesson. Here it is again to enjoy or to watch if you are unable to join.
We will then write sentences to compare the two stories.
Maths video to watch after our lesson. Please then complete p 42 in your workbook.
History- Suitcase lesson
Please join me at 1pm to have a look at the objects and artefacts in the suitcase. We will use our detective skills to work out what they are and who they might belong to.
Friday 24th September
English- To plan our own alternative version of The Little Red Hen.
Please join me at 9:30 for this lesson. We will think of lots of ideas for our own stories. There is a plan in your pack and some ideas for what your character might want to make. Next week we will start our stories!
Maths- This is a revision lesson on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s from Year 1. Please join me at 11am for some activities.
Here are some videos to support the activities in the booklet. We will continue with this objective next Monday so don’t worry if you don’t complete all of the activities.
Spellings- air. There are some activities in your pack to support learning of the alternative ways to spell words with an air sound.

This week in Year 2, we started our new topic “Be Healthy”. We talked about what we need to do to keep our bodies healthy. We thought about what we typically eat and drink in a day and if we choose ‘5 a day’. We have sent home a 5 a day chart; please can children complete these and bring them back to school for a ‘Be Healthy’ dojo! Children also have their homework books with an activity to complete.
In English this week we have been using our senses to help us generate vocabulary for poetry. We particularly enjoyed using our senses to write a poem about different fruits! Here we are tasting fruits; can you guess who was tasting something sour?!
This week in science we were sorting pictures of food into groups. The children came up with their own ideas about how to sort them. The ideas included healthy/ not healthy, sweet/not sweet, like/dislike and junk food/ not junk food. This links into the work we are doing on the eat well guide.
This week in maths we have been partitioning 2 digit numbers. We used part whole models to show how to partition a number into tens and ones.
We have thought about different ways to partition numbers. For example:
36 = 30 + 6
36 = 20 + 16
36 = 10 + 26
We used this activity in class to practise partitioning 2 digit numbers into tens and ones. Choose the TU numbers option.
On Friday afternoons, the children have started taking part in different activities. This half term the children will take part in:
- a cooking session
- a farm session
- 2 computing sessions
- 2 extra PE sessions

What a fantastic start we have had in Year 2!
We have been so impressed with how well the children have settled into their new classes and how quickly they have got used to their new routines.
We have enjoyed finding out about our class animals. We are all excited about being Year 2 foxes and squirrels!
This week we have been thinking about class rules, the learning hives and how we learn.
We have set ourselves some targets for the year linked to our learning hive. We created some wonderful personal art work.
In topic this week, we shared our holiday stories and used maps to find the places we have been to.
In maths this week we have started to learn more about the place value of numbers. We have shown what we know about numbers by drawing them in tens and ones, using a part whole model, writing the number one more and one less and also writing any interesting facts. We have practised writing numbers using both numerals and words. Today we looked at some different ways of representing 2-digit numbers using tens frames, base 10, straws and place value counters. Can your child show you how to represent a 2-digit number using these?
In English we wrote letters to Farsley Fox and Farsley Squirrel telling them about where we have been in the world and where we would like to go. We did a great job! We learned about using capital letters for proper nouns and using question words and question marks. The children used the question words on the wall.
We have done some amazing reading already too. We have used the reading dogs to help us answer different types of questions.
Can your child remember any of the characters?
You should also have received a paper copy of our September Newsletter with lots of other information about Year 2 and what is happening this half term. Here is a PDF copy too!
Thank you for your support so far. We are looking forward to a really great year!
The Year 2 Team.

We had a great time at Sports’ Day and the fun has continued this week with a skip-a-thon, more work in our Bee Books and some multiplication revision in maths.
Here we are skipping. The children recorded their scores for how many skips in 30 seconds. We did this for a range of skips and finished with a class skip off! Well done to our class skipping champions!
Next week we look forward to meeting Miss Ellis and Mrs Begum as we go up to Year 3.

Thank you to everyone who came to support our Sports’ Day yesterday. We hope you enjoyed it. The children certainly did!

Good morning. Here are the resources to support some home learning for those children who are still isolating this week. There are two more pages of the bee book to complete this week, Making Honey and Why are Bees Important? If you haven’t already labelled the bee, here is a powerpoint to support:
Task: to write an explanation about how bees make honey.
Watch this video clip and look at the flow chart below to find out how bees make their delicious honey.
Here are the teaching slides and resources to print.
Why are bees important?
Over the next few days, we are going to be learning about why bees are so important. First we are going to do some reading and research. After that, we will write a report about what we have learnt.
Task: to write a report in your bee book about why bees are important, why they are in danger and how we can help the bees.
Listen to this story:
Listen to the story and follow the recipe to make your own delicious biscuits.
Final 2 pages to complete next week- Index and Glossary
If children will be in school for the week beginning 19th July, please bring your Bee Book back to school and we will complete these sections in school.
There is a blank page in your bee book. What would you like to create a page about?
Here are some ideas:
- Did you know facts
- Other types of bees
- Bee Pollination
We will be doing some revision lessons in school on multiplication and division to get ready for Year 3. Please can you complete any relevant sections in your CGP books or spend time working through Mathletics and TTRockstars. Please email teachers if you would like any further support or guidance.
