Friday 8th January


Don't forget there are some learning packs that you can pick up from school from today, from the top car park. You will find your maths homework books in them, some new reading books and an English and Maths busy pack. These packs can be used for when you would like some extra Year 2 activities. Sometimes one of the daily class page activities might be to complete the next page in your homework book or to choose an activity from your busy packs.

  • 2.00 - 2.15 Meet me online to match some adjectives that describe the main characters of our story following today's English task.



Following on from our Teams meeting this morning, when we were thinking about adjectives and descriptions, today I would like you to think about some adjectives that you could use to describe these characters below.


  Mr Grinling

 Mrs Grinling






Think back to our work on Six Dinner Sid when we thought of adjectives to describe what he looked like and his character. Can you think about what our characters look like today as well as their personality.  You might like to click back to yesterdays' page and listen to the story again. Or if you click the link below you can read it for yourself!


 Who do you think these adjectives and descriptions describe?


useful      grumpy   great baker     cross    loves the sea      pesky


mischievous      varmint    round face      great baker      clever


Do you know what the word varmint means? 

It means an animal that is thought of as a pest e.g. a rat, pigeon, seagull, cockroach


TASK = Make a list of adjectives and phrases that describe the characters today. There is no limit to the amount needed but you will be using these next week so try to get at least 5 for each character. Remember you can describe their appearance too!


You can choose how to present your work -  list, table, draw and present your words around or you can use my template from the link above!



Can you use some of the words you have chosen to write a sentence bingo clue like the ones I use in our BINGO game today?













Balloon (Peace Out: Guided Meditation for Kids) | Cosmic Kids

In this Cosmic Kids guided relaxation, we find a balloon and it carries us to our favourite place, a place where we feel strong and happy.



Below there is a link to a set of games that I would like you to play today. There are 3 different types of games that will help you to practise your sorting, ordering and counting skills within the area of money!


This game today will help you set your own level of challenge because you can select the number or coins your play with or the range of value.  Set your own level, if you get them all correct try and challenge yourself and change the settings!  Good Luck and enjoy.




Yesterday it was sooooo cold, it was minus 6 degrees when I drove to school. The school grounds were beautiful and it looked like a winter wonderland here, really foggy, icy and crisp!


Today I would like you to go into your garden or go on a winter walk to spot the signs of winter.  Can you see where Jack Frost has been?
