Maths - Monday

Task 1:

You will need the speed challenge sheet, a pencil and a 1-minute timer.

Children in Year 2 are expected to know the multiplication facts in the 2X, 5X and 10X tables and the related division facts.  It is important that they know the facts off by heart as this will help them to carry out more complex mental calculations quickly.  Speed challenges area fun way of getting them to think quickly and improve their accuracy by trying to improve their score.  On the sheet you have 5 different speed challenges, 10 calculations in each.  Complete one set a day at the start of each maths session.  Challenge your child to improve their score each day.


Ask your adult to send the completed sheet at the end of the week.

NB: If your child completes all 10 calculations correctly in 1 minute challenge them tomorrow by including some from the 3X tables.


Task 2:

You will need the + and – calculation sheet from the website and a pencil today.  Don’t worry if you can’t print the sheet, you can copy one calculation at a time and answer it just as you would from the white board at school.

Answer as many of these calculations as you can.  Remember to think carefully about the different strategies that we have been using in school.  Counting on/back from the largest number, counting in steps of 10, using partition and recombine.  Please refer to the maths calculation strategy handout that was shared with all parents/carers at the start of the year. For the adding and subtracting of two 2-digit numbers you can also make use of the supporting videos located in the remote learning tab for year two under maths support.


Ask your adult to send your completed work into school using your class email address.

English – Monday (30 minutes)

You will need: A laptop/tablet/phone, a pencil and the storyboard sheet.

Watch the 2 short videos showing the beginning of ‘The Gruffalo’. 


Last week, we asked you to create a new character for the Gruffalo story. Today , you will use that new character instead of The Gruffalo in your story.

For example, when the mouse meets the Fox who invites him into his underground house, you will change what the mouse says to your character: ‘That’s terribly kind of you, but no, I’m going to have lunch with ______________.’


When describing your character, you will change ‘terrible tusks and terrible claws and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws’ to the features that you have created on your own character.

If you think of anything that you want to add to your character, make sure you add it to your picture from last week and label it.


NB: You may need more room for writing, if so, we suggest continuing your writing on a lined piece of paper.


Ask your adult to send a picture of your beginning to your class email address.

Science- Monday

You will need: laptop/tablet/phone and worksheet

Today we are going to be learning about food chains, how food chains use and produce energy and how animals use a food chain to survive. We will also be learning about producers (things that create energy), consumers (things and consume energy) and predators (things they hunt or prey on their food).

There are 2 power points that you need to read through. One for land animals and the other for sea animals. Once you have read the information use the worksheet to create your own food chain. There is an example of land animals and sea animals on the sheet. Try to include whether the animals are producers, consumers or predators and the names of each animals or plant that you use.

Ask your adult to send a picture of your beginning to your class email address.
