Day 1 Class 2



Year 1: You will be revising the sounds ay, ai, oi, oy and ou today. I have found some fun activities for you to do. Make sure you read the instructions carefully.


Year 2: You will be recapping some Phase 5 sounds today. There are 3 activities for you to do including a drawing one. I can't wait to see your pictures!

If you have already completed these phonics activities then click on the link below. It will take you to a website with lots of online phonics lessons. Choose a sound that you find tricky or that you want to revise. You will need a pen and piece of paper!



Click on the link below and watch this video:

Now watch it again and talk about the following:


  • How is the girl feeling at the beginning of the video?
  • Where is she?
  • What does she find?
  • What happens to the girl?
  • How does the girl feel at the end of the video?
  • Why does she put the bubbles back on the beach?


You are going to create a storyboard to retell the Bubbles video. Click on the correct storyboard for your year group and print it off. If you don't have a printer at home, you can draw your own.

Here are some sound mats to help you to spell each word carefully:

If you have already completed this activity last term, have a go at this extension activity:



Watch the video 'Bubbles' again and talk about it together using the questions above. How does the story end? Do you think this is a good ending? What do you think might happen next? I would like you to have a go at writing the next part of the story.  Use the sound mats above to help you to spell each word carefully.

Maths: Money


Year 1: I can recognise and know the value of different coins.

Today we will be practising recognising coins. We did lots of learning about money and recognising coins before Christmas. You will need some coins for today's learning but if you do not have any at home, you can print off the 'Coins' document below to help you.


Activity 1

Look at some coins together. Pick up each coin, turn it over and look at the pictures on it.  Look at their different colours, shapes and sizes. What is similar and different about each coin? Can you sort the coins into piles? Now get one of each coin. Can you put them in order of how much they are worth?  How many 1p coins would you need to make 5p? How many 2p coins would you need to make 10p?


Activity 2

For this activity you need a selection of 1p and 2p coins only.  Take a small handful of coins and spread them out on the table. How much money do we have altogether? Count the coins carefully. Are they 1p or 2p coins? How could you count them? Is it easier to count all the 2p coins first and then the 1ps? Repeat with another handful. 

Now add a 5p to your group of coins. How much money do you have now? It is easiest to count the largest coin first so start with the 5p, then the 2ps , then the 1ps.

Now add a 10p as well and try counting up different combinations of coins.



Can you find five different ways to make 10p?



Year 2: I can use different combinations of coins to make an amount.

You will need some coins for today's learning. If you do not have any coins at home, you can use the 'Coins' document at the bottom of this page to help you.


Start by looking at all of the different coins. Look at their colours, shapes and sizes. How are they similar? How are they different? How much is each coin worth? Can you put them in order? How many 1p coins do you need to make £1? How many 10p coins do you need to make £1?


Today you are going to use different combinations of coins to make an amount. The first amount I would like you to make is 50p.

Write the following sentence on a piece of paper or a whiteboard: I can make 50p.

Now use some coins to make 50p. What is the most simple way? See if you can find four different ways to make 50p. Now write each of your different ways as an addition number sentence e.g. 20p + 10p +10p + 5p + 5p = 50p


Now try making each of the following amounts:





Remember, you must find four different ways to make each of the amounts and write each way you find as an addition number sentence.



Click on the World Map below and spend some time looking at it together. If you have a children's atlas at home you could also look at that together.  Can you read the names of each of the seven continents?  Can you name each of the oceans?  Can you find the United Kingdom? Which continent is it in? We looked at the United Kingdom on Google Earth last half term. Do you remember? We also found out some facts about the UK.

Click on the Power Point and spend some time looking through the slides. There is lots of information about the United Kingdom. I would like you to find out the following facts:


What are the four countries that make up the United Kingdom?

What are the capital cities of each of the countries?

What are the seas that surround the United Kingdom?


You will need these facts to help you with your learning tomorrow.
