Hello Year 2

I hope you are all well and keeping safe. I will be teaching in school this week so it will be strange being in our classroom without you!

Here is the learning for this week, any problems then get in touch through Purple Mash.

Mrs Marsden.


I’m not going to set any new work on MyMaths this week as I can see that there are quite a few of you who haven’t completed the ones already set. Try and complete some of these older tasks – every little bit helps!


Continue working through the Oak National Academy lessons.


Practise your mental maths skills on this fun game:

You can play any of the following– number bonds, halves, doubles, times tables (x2, x5, x10)


If you’d like a challenge you could have a go at this game.

Click on 0-10, 0-20, 0-50, 0-100, depending on the level of difficulty you would like. To make the game easier, you can click on ‘show divisions’. Clue – think about what each division means – if you are playing 0-20, and the division is in the middle, then that line will be 10. You can use this to help you place your number; so 12 would be after the middle, 9 would be just before. You can always use a number line to help you.  


Remember to keep practising on Numbots and Times Table Rock Stars.



Go to and practise any of the Phase 5 games.


We are looking at a ‘contractions’ this week. A contraction is where there are two words that have been joined together with some of the letters being taken out and replaced with an apostrophe. For example, can not becomes can’t (the n and the o have been replaced by the ‘ ).

In addition please practise the list of words and the Common Exception Words at



There are a number of fun activities in this booklet on Superheroes, choose 1-2 per day.

Y2-Superheroes Talk for Writing

It would be great if you could recap the different sentence types. I know you’ve done this previously but it always helps to go over things, especially as it’s been so long since we were together.


The karate kats are here to help you with your grammar, punctuation and spelling.



Listen to the story ‘Cake’ and have a go at answering the questions.
