Good morning Year 2 children and your parents!


I hope you all enjoyed your first week of learning from home and that you are all staying safe and well. Here is your tasks for today:



In your purple folder you should have a list of spellings with an indication of what the next set of spellings are. Please write these on the spelling grid and then practise them this week. To challenge yourself, why not practise writing the words in your spelling list in sentences.



We are now getting closer to Easter so I thought it would be a good idea to learn about this special time of the year. In your folders you should have a set of comprehension sheets. Please find the one about Easter (see picture below). Read the text and then answer the questions. As some of the answers to the questions can be found in the text you read it would be great to underline the information as you find it. Then get a grown up to mark your answers. There is another comprehension activity about Easter in your pack too so feel free to do this when you want to. Don't forget about the RWI lesson which is live at 10.30am each day too. It would be great to access this daily to keep learning your sounds and words. Use this link -


Reading comprehension


Today you are learning to draw 2D shapes. Use the presentation listed below (lesson 4) and then complete the 'Draw 2D Shapes' sheet which is in your purple folder. Once you have completed this, why not draw a picture using all the shapes you have learnt to draw. Then label the shapes. It would be great to see some of these on the Galileo class blog. You also have some mymaths activities set if you want extra maths to do today.

Over the past few weeks we have been learning about different nurses. We know that these nurses were special people who worked very hard to make people better. People who work in the hospitals today are very busy looking after patients. If you know someone who works in a hospital why not make them a card to say thank you for the amazing work they do, or make a poster to put in your window to say thank you to these incredible workers. You could also put your card or poster on the Galileo class blog to share with your friends and teachers.


Enjoy your day smiley
