Day 2 Class 2



Year 1: You will be revising some of the Phase 5 sounds we have done this term today in a matching activity. You will also need to be able to spot real and alien words so get those magnifying glasses out for some good Phonics detective work!


Year 2: You will be continuing to recap some Phase 5 sounds today and also reading some tricky words. There are 3 activities for you to do today including a matching game. You will need scissors for the game to cut out your word and picture cards. Enjoy!

If you have already completed these phonics activities then follow the link below. It will take you to a website with some online phonics lessons. Choose a sound that you would like to revise and click on that lesson. You will need a pen and paper!



Yesterday we watched the video 'Bubbles' and created a storyboard to retell the story in order. If you didn't finish your storyboard yesterday, you can finish it today.


Today we are going to think about the middle of the story, where the girl floats away on a bubble.

Watch the video again and pause it when the girl floats away on the bubble:

Imagine you could float away on a bubble. Where would you float to? What might you see? How would it feel? Talk about these questions together.

Now you are going to do some writing about your bubble adventure. 


Year 1: Write a sentence with a capital letter and a full stop to answer each question on the sheet below. Remember to use your sound mats from yesterday to help you!

Year 2: I have written the first sentence of your bubble adventure story and I would like you to carry on. Try to write at least 5 sentences. Remember to use capital letters, full stops and adjectives to describe.
If you have already completed the 'Bubble' story writing activity then I would like you to spend some time reading. You can choose any book you have at home. Find somewhere comfortable to sit and try to spend at least 20 minutes reading. You might be able to read some of your book by yourself or you might want a grown up to help you. If you read by yourself, ask your grown up to ask you some questions at the end about what you have read.



Year 1: I can count coins to make an amount.

Yesterday you looked at all of the different coins and put them in order of how much they are worth. Start today by doing the same activity. If you do not have any coins at home you can use the 'Coin' sheet from yesterday to look at each coin.

Today I would like you to use different coins to make some amounts.  You can choose if you would like to make amounts up to 10p, 20p, 50p or £1. Click on the Bakery Price List below and use your coins to buy each of the items from the bakery. You could record your answers as an addition number sentence e.g. 10p + 2p = 12p

Challenge: Can you buy each item using the fewest coins possible?


Year 2:

I can add numbers to find the total.

I can count coins to make an amount.


Yesterday we practised using different combinations of coins to make amounts. Today we are going to practice this some more and also practice adding two numbers together to find the total. Click on the Shop Price List document below. Firstly, I would like you to use some coins to make each of the amounts. Can you make each amount using the fewest amount of coins? Keep practising this until you become really confident at counting different coins. Your grown up could make up some extra amounts for you.

When you are feeling confident with counting coins to make the amounts I would like you to have a go at the challenge!


Challenge: Choose two of the items to buy from the shop. How much money are they altogether? How will you work this out? You will need to do an addition calculation.

First write the number sentence: 45p + 53p =

Then have a think. Which strategy could you use to solve this? You might want to represent each number by drawing the tens and ones and then adding them together. You might want to draw an empty number line and add on that way.

When you have found the total, count out the coins that you need to pay.

Now have a go at buying two more items from the shop.



Yesterday you had a look at a map of the world. You also looked at a Power Point all about the United Kingdom. Did you manage to find out the facts that I listed? I asked you to find out:

What are the four countries of the United Kingdom?

What are the capital cities of each of the countries?

What are the names of the seas that surround the United Kingdom?


Click on the map of the United Kingdom below and have a look again at the countries, capital cities and seas. 

Now click on the blank map of the UK. I would like you to label the map with the following:


  • The four countries of the UK and their capital cities
  • The seas that surround the UK


Year 1 children should copy the names of the countries and cities from the coloured map to the blank map.

Year 2 children should try and label their map from memory and then use the coloured map to check you have put your labels in the correct place.


When you have finished labelling, you can colour in your map carefully using light green for the land and light blue for the sea.
