We have read The Snowman so today we would like you to listen to The Snowman and the Snowdog. Once you have listened to it go and tell someone in your house what the story was about and whether you liked it better than The Snowman or not and why. Can you think of 2 reasons?

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.


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 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

Maths Magic - 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! 

Adding 3 digits

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


This week we have been learning all about the religious festival of Hanukkah in our R.E. lesson. We sequenced the story and learned about the importance of this festival to Jews. 



This week we have had lots of fun in Maths doing practical work using base 10. We have also been counting forwards and backwards and exercising to music in our starters. Click on the links below to join in with some of our favourites!



We have had a very exciting day today as our friends from Byker Fire Station came to visit us in their fire truck. We have been learning all about The Great Fire of London this half term so it was an amazing way to end our topic. The showed us some tools and equipment, let us squirt water out of the hose and told us what to do if there was a fire. I'm sure you will agree from our faces in the pictures that we had a fantastic morning!

Fun with the Fire fighters!
