Monday 23rd March

Good Morning Class 2!


I hope you all had a lovely weekend? It was so nice and sunny outside. Did you go out for a walk or bike ride? I went to the woods with my boys. It was very muddy!

Muddy puddles!

What are you doing today? Scroll down to find your home learning activities for today. Miss Renno has uploaded the English and there is some Maths and Computing from me. Finley, Lewis and I are going to start our day at 9am by tuning into Joe Wicks’ YouTube channel and joining in with his PE lesson! I hope you have a lovely day!


Love from Mrs Sothcott x



For your Mighty Writing today, we would like you to write a description of the harbour setting in The Snail and the Whale. Miss Renno explained what to do on Friday and gave you a Mighty Writing information sheet in your home learning pack.  You will also find an English book in your pack that you can do your writing in.  

In case you weren’t here on Friday, you can click on the document below to see a picture of the setting we would like you to describe.

Before you start, you might like to talk about the picture and note down some ideas. Remember, when we are writing a description it is important to use lots of adjectives!

When we do Mighty Writing in school, we usually turn off the lights and open the blinds right up to let in some natural light. We also put special candle lights on the tables and play some relaxing piano music. You might like to do the same at home! See if you can spend at least 20 minutes writing your description.  

Tomorrow, you will have a chance to edit and improve your Mighty Writing. So don’t worry if you run out of time today!


After you finish your writing tomorrow, we would really like to see it so ask your grown up to take a photo of it and email it to our class email address by Friday!

Harbour Scene

Word Mat - colour coded as usual

 Hello - it's Miss Renno here. If you aren't sure where to start your writing, use this to help you for the first few sentences.

The parts in (   ) are suggestions, you don't have to write exactly the same as me.


The _______(noisy) seagulls could see the busy harbour. They flew over the________________(fishing trawler), the ________________ (large green container ship) and ______________( the red ferry). They dodged the ___________

(red and white stripy lighthouse) as they darted towards the _________(choppy) sea. The snail with the itchy foot was _______________________________.


Then write about what they can hear and then what they can smell. 

Try your best, I'm sure it will be lovely. 





We have been learning about fractions in maths. Last week we all practised finding fractions of shapes. Year 1s were finding half and quarter and Year 2s were finding half, quarter, three quarters and thirds.

Click on the link below to watch this fun fractions song:



Year 1

Year 2

Follow the weblink and click on Lesson 1 to watch the video. It explains what a fraction is and will help you to understand the difference between the whole and the parts. 

Then click on the activity. Today, I only want you to have a go at questions 1-6.

Use the answer sheet to see how you got on. If you made a mistake, see if you can work out where you went wrong. Can you have another go? Remember you can use your maths book in your home learning pack to show your workings if you need to!



Last week we started talking about how to stay safe online. We talked about the different websites we like to use. Follow the weblink to the ThinkYouKnow Jessie and Friends website. This website aims to give 4-7 year olds the knowledge, skills and confidence to help them respond safely to risks they may encounter online. 

Last week we watched Episode 1 which explained how to stay safe when watching videos online.  You can watch this episode again if you like!

This week, I would like you to watch Episode 2: Sharing Pictures. Talk about what is happening in the video.
