Please complete the Year 2 Summer Term week 3 revision unit this week – addition and subtraction and finally, a Friday Maths Challenge! If you can’t print sheets, don’t worry- you could ask your child to orally go through answers with you or use the home learning book to record answers. From this week onwards, the White Rose Home Learning runs in line with the BBC Bitesize Home Learning Page. This means that every day, there’s a learning video on the White Rose web page to watch and a link to that day’s BBC Bitesize page for more information and even more lesson content. There are activities set on Education City for this unit. plus keep practising your times tables on TT Rock Stars! There are no new assigned Mathletics activities for this unit because pupils have already completed them earlier in the year.



Linking with our plants topic, we would like you to read Jack and the Beanstalk this week and then map out the story. Next week you will be writing the story! 


Task 1. Reading Comprehension. Read the story which is attached below and complete the reading comprehension questions attached to the story. Choose from the 2 star or 3 star level for the story and comprehension. You should be able to read most, if not all of the story aloud to your grown-ups!


Task 2. Story Mapping: Complete the story mapping activity which is also attached below. This will help you to remember what happens in the story and in what order. When it comes to writing our story next week, you can use this resource to support you with your writing!


Creative Time

Choose at least one to complete through the week. You can do all of the activities below if you choose. Our new topic this half term is all about growing and observing plants.



Do some observational drawings/sketches of plants, by using real plants in your garden or in the house or by using photos of plants. You could colour them carefully or leave them as pencil sketches. Remember to use light pencil strokes when you sketch that can be rubbed out rather than pressing really hard.

Look very carefully at the plant as you draw, using the questions below to help you to look at the detail:

• What shape are the leaves?

• Is the stem thin or thick?

• Does it have flowers?

• What colour and shape are the flowers?



Sing along to the song ‘Little Seed’ which is all about what a seed needs to grow well and what it might grow into! The words and music are saved in this week’s attached resources. Perhaps you could make up your own verse too? As always, we’d love to hear you singing along so do feel free to send us in your recordings!



There isn’t a Science lesson this week other than to keep up with watering your seeds/plants and entering any growth measurements in your measurement table from last week’s resources If you haven’t managed to plant anything yet!


Remember that it is not expected that you complete all of the activities above. Do what you can, when you can. We are here to support you. The most important thing is that all children feel loved and safe in a time like this and we continue to look after their physical and mental health. Have fun and stay safe!

VE Day Activities


On Friday, people all over the UK and in other countries will turn their thoughts and attention to the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. This is a really important day in our country's History. Back in 1945, the 8th of May marked the end of World War II. Since then, every year on the 8th of May people have celebrated this special day and are thankful for the end of the war. 


So, down below are lots of different activities for you to try that will help you learn all about VE Day. There is a little idea planner that shows all the different activities available for you to do to help you decide what you would like to do.


Once you've completed them, don't forget to send emails so Mrs Hogg and I can see all the super things you've been up to and the fantastic learning you've done all about VE Day.
