Lesson 1 - Count sides and vertices on 2D shapes

Today, as you have been used to doing, you will first need to visit the White Rose website for the video. The White Rose website link below will take you to the correct page for Year 2.


Watch the video slides – pause and rewind as you need to. Then, answer the questions on the activity sheets in your exercise book. The answers are there for you to check, too.


You can also visit the BBC website, following the link below, for additional videos and activities on today's lesson if you would like further support with your learning.



This year, we have looked at different sentence types. Today, you will be reminded of how to recognise and use command sentences. 


Follow the BBC link below. Watch the short video and then try the quiz. 

This week, we will have a pirate theme to our writing! 


Now that you understand what command sentences are, I would like you to imagine you are the captain of a pirate ship and you need to give some orders (commands) to the other pirates.


Scrub the deck!

Load the cannons.


Write your own command sentences including imperative verbs and the correct punctuation. 


I have put a pirate jobs word mat below to help you if needed.


You can email your work to year2@overseal.derbyshire.sch.uk

Topic - Art


Today, we will be using Oak National Academy for our art lesson.


We will be studying a spectacular artist called Wassily Kandinsky. He was a Russian artist known for using lots of colours and shapes in his artwork. We will be recreating our own Kandinsky-inspired artwork. You will need some paints or colouring pencils for today’s lesson.


You can send your work to year2@overseal.derbyshire.sch.uk
