Lesson 2 - Make equal groups (Sharing)

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.


Reading comprehension


Today, you will be reading extracts from the book Cake written by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. You will learn how to decide if a statement is true or false and to explain what words mean. 


First, watch singer Ashley Roberts read an extract from Cake and think about the given questions.

Then, watch Ashley read another extract from Cake and think about the given questions. 

After that, complete the activities. 


Activity 1 - Read extract 1 and then read the statements in the table and decide whether each statement is true or false.

Activity 2 - Read extract 2 and then read the sentences and answer the questions.

Activity 3 - Read extract 2 again. Write another verse for Cake to sing on his way to the party.

Topic - RE

Special Places


Today, we will be considering what makes a place so special to people.

Read and work through the power points below and complete the two activities. 


Activity 1 - Can you think of a place that is special to you? It might be an outside place or inside a building. Draw and label your special place either on the 'Your Special Place' sheet provided below or in your exercise book.


Activity 2 - Think about places of worship and how they are special to people. What qualities might a place of worship have? Either using one of the 'Making a Word Cloud' sheets provided below or in your exercise book, write the words so that they form the shape of a building. You can choose the shape of the building; it doesn't have to be like any particular place of worship you have seen.
