Remote Learning Week 1



We have pretty much covered all the maths subjects in Year 2. We were just going over all topics in preparation for the SATs. If you were in on the last day I enclosed in your homework books some statistical work and a SATs reasoning paper.

I would suggest that generally you try to teach your child how to tell the time to the minute. There are some great free apps such as interactive telling the time lite. Maybe get them to tell you the correct time on their daily work timetable. It may encourage them if they can tell you when it's time for a break!

This week White Rose maths have prepared a series of 5 brand new maths lessons. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child complete the activity successfully. You just need to go on click on year 2 and there is a lesson and downloadable worksheet. It's all about fractions this week. If you struggle to access that I attach the following;


Monday                            Practical - equal parts

Tuesday                            Worksheet - equal parts

Wednesday                      Worksheet -Recognise one half

Thursday                            Worksheet - Find one half

Friday                                  Worksheet - Recognise one quarter



 Jack and the Beanstalk

Monday: Share and enjoy the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.  You can use the power point below. Then your child can cut out and use the stick puppets to retell the story to you.

Tuesday: Share the story again or retell it using the stick puppets.  You could use your own version of the story if you have a copy at home.  Cut up the sequencing cards to sequence the events of the story correctly.  Decide how many pictures you wish to sequence.

Wednesday: Write sentences to go with each picture.  Remembering to use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.  check the spelling of your tricky words against the tricky word mat.

Thursday: Continue writing the sentences to go with each picture until the story is completed.  Check your work using the sentence checker - capital letters, finger spaces, full stops. 

Friday: Share the story.  chat with your child about having a magic bean.  What would they do with it? What would it grow into?  What sort of magical land would it take them to?  Complete the If I had a magic bean writing frame.  Check punctuation and spelling of tricky words.


Please find the resources for this week below.  Included in the resources is a word search and a wanted poster to extend your child if you wish.  There is also a word mat to help with story writing.

If your child wants to do more they can do the fact file planning sheet and then turn it into a booklet about their particular animal. Have a good first week. Any issues please contact me on my E mail
