Maths - Lesson 2 - Use arrays

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.

Literacy - Homophones


It is important that we keep practising our spelling and apply new learning in our written work. We have looked at different homophones already this year but I would like us to revisit our learning to ensure we are really confident in our written work.


Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings. They also have different spellings.


Today, we will be using the BBC resources to support us.

First, follow the link below and watch the video 'What are homophones?'. Then complete the short quizzes.

Next, follow the link below and watch the video 'How to use their, they're and there'. Then complete the short quizzes.
After that, follow the link below and watch the video 'How to use to, too and two'. Then complete the short quizzes.
Finally, write your own sentences in your exercise book using their, they're, there, to, too and two correctly.

Topic - Science

Today, we will learn about how animals are classified (sorted) into different groups.

There are lots and lots of different animals all over the world. 

Each animal has been classified by scientists so it belongs to a group.

Discover some facts about each group by watching the video clips on the BBC website - follow the link below. 


Then complete the quiz.

After that, complete the sheet by sorting the animals into groups. You don't need to print this, you could draw and sort your own animals into groups in your exercise book or on a piece of paper. 

If you would like the sheet, click on the picture of the activity sheet on the website and it will open. 

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