Continue to follow your child's current programme for Phonics learning:

Set 2 Lessons-  Read Write Inc - Features daily videos on a new sound.

Set 3 Sounds - Read Write Inc - Features daily videos on a new sound

Read Longer Words - Read Write Inc - The next step from Set 3, applying our knowledge of sounds to work out longer words.

Investigating Alternative Spellings - PhonicsPlay - Scroll down to Phase 5c and work through the 'Investigating Alternative Spellings' activities at your own pace.

Phase 6 Spelling Rules - PhonicsPlay - These games allow practice of the more complex spelling rules for Year 2, and are the next step from the Alternative Spellings work. You can go through these games at your own pace. 



This week, we are finishing our Stone Cutter stories off with a blurb and a front cover, then reviewing what we thought of the story.

Task 1 - LO: To design my own front cover for The Stone Cutter
Think back to when we analysed the front cover of 'The Diary of a Killer Cat'. The front cover needs to be much more than just a picture. Have a go at creating a front cover for your version of the story. Try to:
Include the title, author and illustrator's names
Give a small clue (but no spoilers!) about what will happen
- Give clues that it is a story from Japanese culture
- Add some quotes from 'book reviews': what quotes might persuade people to read it?

Task 2 - LO: To write an exciting blurb for a story
The job of a blurb is to give enough information to interest the readers and make them want to find out what happens. Make sure you don't tell them too much of the story though - no spoilers! Can you write a blurb for your version of The Stone Cutter? See if you can:
- Use '...' to add mystery.
- Ask a question, e.g. 'Will the stone cutter ever be content?'


Task 3 - LO: To write a book review
To finish off, we are writing book reviews of The Stone Cutter. Complete this template or write your own :)



This week in Maths, we are trying to learn more efficient mental methods for adding and subtracting multiples of ten, using our knowledge of place value. This should mean we don't need to use column method for problems like 37 + 30, as we know we are just adding 3 tens.

Task 1  - LO: To find ten more and ten less

Task 2  - LO: To add and subtract tens

Task 3  - LO: To know number bonds to 100

Wider Curriculum: Computing

LO: To create digital art by manipulating pixels 

Last week, we learned about how digital images are created simply by changing the colour of pixels on your drawing. We practised using different tools and explored what happens if we changed the number of pixels on our page - the more pixels you use, the less obvious the square are! 

Using the skills we learned last week, use the Pixilart website to create a digital image of a place that is special to you. Try to use a range of different tools and choose the amount of pixels you prefer for your canvas. We'll use these for ideas when we start our 'special places' unit in RE after half term :)
