Maths - Lesson 3 - Subtract 2-digit numbers

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.


Continue your work from yesterday. I have put the same information below because you may have all got up to different stages yesterday.


This week, we will be using the BBC lessons for our home learning activities. Follow the link below.


First, watch the short video about question marks. 


Then follow the activities (there are three activities on the website but you do not need to do activity 3). 


Activity 1 - Later in this lesson we are going to watch a clip about 'The Magic Faraway Tree'. In the story there are four children called Joe, Beth, Franny and Rick. They love going to the Magic Faraway Tree because they always have so much fun there.

Write a question for each of the four children asking them something about the tree. You can do this verbally or you can write it down.

  • Use words like: what, did, does, have and where to start your questions.
  • Don't forget your question marks.


Activity 2 - Watch the video about The Magic Faraway Tree. 

What can you remember about The Magic Faraway Tree? Imagine you have been on an adventure there and you want to write a diary entry about it. You only need to write about one of the days you spent there. Remember to write in the past tense.


Watch the video again and make some notes about the things you want to include in your diary.


Your diary entry will need to include:

  • a greeting like 'Dear Diary' or 'To Diary'
  • a description of the tree (what it looked like, how it felt to be there)
  • who you met (what were their names and what did they look like)
  • what questions you asked whilst there (remember to include question marks)
  • information about what you did and how you felt
  • a closing like 'Got to go now' or 'time for me to go'


Have you challenged yourself to include most or all of the features above?


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


Topic - Art

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

In this lesson, we will be making insects using natural materials. You will need things like small twigs, leaves, petals and stones. Don't worry if you don't have access to any of these materials in your garden or on your daily walk, you could make your own insects out of any craft or recycled materials instead. 

Follow the link below to access the lesson.


It would be great to see your artwork. You might decide to spend longer on this activity or try it on a different day. Whenever you have completed your artwork, you can email a photo of it to year2@overseal.derbyshire.sch.uk
