Autumn 2

Thursday 16th December 2021


Good Morning Year 2,

Unfortunately another day of home learning. I hope you enjoyed doing the activities yesterday.

Only 9 more sleeps until Christmas, if you have an advent calendar I wonder what you got when you opened the door this morning- I got a chocolate star!


Follow the links again below to access your work for today. I look forward to seeing how you got on when we get back to school.




Click on the link above. You will need a pencil and a piece of paper for this activity. Otherwise, you can Fred talk your answer! Each word has the first sound missing. Click on the picture to hear the word. Choose the set of special friends that completes the word and then on your paper write the word. e.g. The first word is __ip, clicking on the picture you hear the sound 'sh' write the word ship.  Repeat for each of the other words.




Continuing with our topic of money. Todays activity is to recognise and sort coins of different value. choose the sorting label and choose 2 coins. Sort the coins correctly into their boxes. Once you have completed that click on the ordering label and choose the 1p-20p, then try 1p-50p and finally Any 6 coins. 



Today follow Jamie on a special Christmas adventure in the snow. You will feel calm and relaxed after all of your deep breaths!




We have learned a lot about the lifecycle of humans and the essential 3 things they need to survive. Can you remember what they are??


Today you are going to learn about the importance of a healthy diet. Look at the PPT below then have fun designing a healthy meal with snacks and a drink.  


Healthy Eating

A healthy balanced meal

Enjoy your Thursday and we will be back on tomorrow with more activities for you to do!

Guided Reading


We have watched The Snowman already and looked at poems about snowmen and Winter. Listen to the story of The Snowman by clicking the link below and then answer the RIC questions.

Hi Year 2,

We are sorry that you are not in school again today as it would be our Christmas party day. Perhaps you can get dressed up at home and practise your dance moves to some Christmassy music! I'm sure Eddy the elf will be dancing somewhere!


I have added some links below to activities that you can try throughout the day.



On Phonics Play choose Phase 3 and click on Picnic on Pluto. Select Phase 3 and press the start button. Choose Phase 3 again and pick a sound to revise e.g. 'ur'. Decide if the words are real or fake. You can repeat the activity for different sounds if you would like.



We have come to the end of our addition and subtraction unit in maths. In the new year we will start to learn about money so here is a game to choose coins that add up to the amount needed to buy a toy. Have a go and see how you get on.

Click on the 'mixed coins' label and select up to 20p. Choose the coins needed to pay for the toy.



We all love doing yoga and thinking about our wellbeing so grab a water bottle and take part in Jamie's magical  adventure with Joybob the polar bear!




Here is the story of how Rudolph became such a famous reindeer. Enjoy!


Check back tomorrow

Hi everyone, 

We're really sorry that we can't be in school with you today but we have no hot water or heating.  Eddie the elf says that it's too cold for us to be in.


I hope he's not making a mess of the classrooms!!!  cheeky


Check out the links for games and activities that you can do on your phones, tablets and computers.


Check back tomorrow for some more things to do.

Adding 3 numbers


It's all go this week in Year 2.

We've finshed alot of our topics like the Great Fire of London, your child should have brought home their book that they can keep. 

We finished our music lesson this week with a performance of the song that we have been learning on Charanga, called Ho Ho Ho! 


We had a visit from Rudy the Reading Elf, who brought us a special Christmas book to read - The dinosaur who pooped Christmas! (Mrs McGregor was a little bit green when reading it blush)


We had a visit from the Byker Fire and Rescue Crew on Thursday.  Eddie the Elf managed to hide his way on the the appliance!



Eddie wasn't the only one to have an amazing time learning about the applience and all the other things that the fire fighters do as well as putting out fires. 


DID  YOU KNOW..  Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue has a Fire Boat on the River Tyne and that each appliance has a water rescue kit?









We even got to have a go at the hoses!

Can you spot yourself in the photos?

Thank you to our friends at TWFR for helping us today.


See you soon



What an exciting week we've had....!


On Tuesday we went to the Northen Stage to see The Sorcerer's Apprentice.


We had an amazing time.  The show was 2 hours and 40 minutes long!  But we sat woderfully, right next to the stage!




We have also been carying on with our sewing of the fire engines - today we stuffed them.


Last week was a busy week with Odd Sock Day and Children in Need (otherwise known by our children as Pudsey Bear Day)


Thanks to all that put in a great effort.

Sewing on a Friday!!!

In DT this half term we are learning how to sew.  This week we have been trying the back stitch.


- it's not as easy as we make it look! heart

Concentrating hard

This half term we will be having PE on a Wednesday afternoon.  Please send your children into school in sensible footwear.


Our theme this term is 'dance' and making our own groovy moves!  smiley
