Please find below a selection of work for week commencing Monday 28th June if you are unable to be in school due to self-isolation or other Covid-19 related reasons:

** PLEASE NOTE - This is only work for children who are off school, which mirrors what we are completing in class. This is not the homework for the week - Homework can be found in the 'Homework' tab **

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. I'd recommend one activity per day e.g. a Phoneme Spotter one day, Word Sort the next day, Best Bet the next day. You can log in for free at the moment using the username and password on the PhonicsPlay homepage.

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 continuing our work on our new class novel - Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl.

1. Understand how an author builds up tension
Read up to the end of Chapter 16 - The WomanIn this chapter, Roald Dahl tries to make us feel scared that Mr Fox is going to get caught... Have you noticed how he describes everything the woman is doing really slowly and in lots of detail? The longer it lasts, the more nervous we feel! 

Write a list of phrases that Roald Dahl uses in this chapter to build tension (make you feel nervous they'll get caught). Two examples to get you started could be ''the woman paused, looking left to right" and "she stopped right in front of them". 

2. Think of your own tension-building phrases
Can you think of some more phrases of your own that could build tension? Imagine you are hiding somewhere and you're worried you're going to get caught. What would make you feel nervous? e.g. I heard footsteps getting closer and closer. 

3. Write your own version of the chapter
Can you rewrite the chapter using some of your own phrases? You might want to stick with 'the woman' coming into the storehouse, or you might choose something else, e.g. a predator comes in and you're hiding from them. 




In Maths this week, we are learning how to tell the time.

Task 1  - LO: O'clock and half past
Video    Worksheet

Video    Worksheet

Video    Worksheet   


Wider Curriculum: Art

LO: To understand how abstract art is subjective
In art, we are learning about Barbara Hepworth. Watch this video for a short introduction to her work. Hepworth was very famous for creating abstract sculptures. This means it might not look like something realistic, but it represents something in shape. Have a look at this sheet containing some images of Hepworth's famous sculptures. What do you see in the sculpture? Next to each image, write down what you think the sculpture is showing. Ask your family - do they think the same?
