Week 12

Hello Year Two,

How are you? We hope that you’ve had lovely weekends.

You will find two new overviews this week. One for Oak National Academy and one which follows our school focus text which this week is called ‘Greta and the Giants’.  I hope that you enjoy listening to this text and have fun with your home learning. We have really enjoyed seeing your learning this week and are so impressed with all of your efforts.

Well done Year Two we are very proud of you.




Listen to 'Great and the Giants' read by Mrs Maccabee.

Read the non-fiction pages to learn more about Greta Thunberg and answer these comprehension questions.



Practise writing questions to learn more about Greta Thunberg. Click on the website link on the overview to remind yourself of the key features first.

In the story the Giants were cutting down more and more of the forest, harming the environment. Can you help Greta by writing a letter to them to ask them to stop and to explain to them how they are harming the environment. You can use your own paper and decorate your letter or you can use the letter writing paper from here.


Practice your spellings. Try one or two a day


This week we are learning about how facts are related. Have a go at the Bitesize links from the overview and try activites 1 and 2. Then try these related facts on the sheet. Don't forget to look at each number sentence by checking it makes sense. Remember you can also check your ideas by using your mental maths skills or by drawing 10's and 1's pictures if it helps.  If you need a reminder of how to use these drawings  look at the 'Solving word problems' video under Year 2 in the Video Resource Center.

Finally you can continue to practise addition and subtraction facts using the 'Top Marks' website on the overview and challenge yourself to move onto multiplication and division too.


June 8th is World Ocean Day. Visit the website link on the overview to learn more and use your sketching skills to draw some of the beautiful ocean creatures you can see in the rock pooling video.


The BBC Ten Pieces site is a fantastic resource helping children to experience music, orchestras and to develop their reponses. This week use the music to create a great 3 D sculpture. See the overview for details.


You've learned about the continents of the word but can you name their surrounding oceans and seas? Use an Atlas or Google Earth to learn more and fill in this blank map.

Finally listen to Chapter Two of George's Marvellous Medicine. What will George do this week?
