Maths - Lesson 2 - Compare number sentences

Today, as you have been used to doing, you will first need to visit the White Rose website for the video slides and worksheets. 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.

Literacy - Instructions


This week, our literacy unit is instructions.

In this lesson, we will be learning about adverbs of time and manner. You will find out when and how to use these and will be learning how to add them to the start of instructions. You will need a piece of paper, a pencil and your work from yesterday.


Follow the link below to access the lesson. 


It’s really important that we keep practising our writing. Try really hard today to form letters accurately and on the line. Don't forget to join too! smiley

Topic - Music


I know how much you enjoy music Year 2 so hopefully you will find this music lesson fun!


Today you will be learning about rhythm and body percussion. 

First, watch the video to learn about body percussion and then try activity 1 - making your own sounds.

Next, try activity 2 - watch the video to see how to play the Forbidden Rhythm game. This is a game that helps children develop a sense of pulse as a group - you could try this with your family! 

Finally, try activity 3. If you find activity 3 a little tricky, you could use the Bring the Noise: Play It interactive tool to sing, play or clap along with different songs and make up your own versions. Remember to think about the rhythm! 


Enjoy and have fun!
