Virtual Learning Activities

Thursday 2nd April 2020

Good morning All. I am extremely proud of all the work you are doing, well done. I do look forward to looking at what you have done and reading your messages. I hope you have been able to get outside for a daily walk or some exercise.Keep going, it is nearly the end of the week.


Please see below your activities for today:


Handwriting: Practise writing out the letters ‘f and e’ and ‘f and r’ joined together.  Then think of words where these letters are written next to each other and write these out too. Remember to use cursive handwriting. (10 minutes)

Reading Comprehension: Read a short story that you enjoy. Then choose 4 words from the story and find the definitions for each word. Why don’t you challenge yourself and find synonyms for these words too.

English: Choose one of the pictures below and use it as a stimulus for writing a story, poem or settings description. Use adjectives and have a go at including similes too; don’t forget your punctuation! (35 minutes)

Science: In your first term of Year 2 we learnt about food groups. Revise your learning by completing the ‘Food Group’ activity on Purple Mash.

Art: Pretend you are an interior designer. Choose a character from one of your favourite books and design what their bedroom looks like. Can you explain why you have designed it in this way?


Remember to read for 15 minutes and get plenty of exercise.


Have a wonderful day!
