Good morning Class 2!


Good morning Class 2!

I hope you all had a good Wednesday. Did you enjoy the marble paper art? We really enjoyed it in school and got very messy. Here are some pictures of us doing it and our art:

We have our whole class story today at 2 pm so I will be live in Google Classroom then. I hope to see lots of you then!


Have a lovely day!


Love Mrs Pilgrim x


This is our last lesson on Jack and the Beanstalk. Today we are going to look at the Giant's rhyme: Fe, Fi, Fo, Fum. Let's sing the Fe, Fi, Fo, Fum song to remind us of the rhyme. Click below to watch Mrs Miller singing the song. Join in if you can!

Now let's read the Giant's rhyme from the story:
Today we are going to practice our neat handwriting by copying out the Giant Rhyme. You will need a sharp pencil, a copy of the giant rhyme and some handwriting paper (below) or lined paper.
There is some handwriting paper below for you to print and write on. Year 1s, click on the Year 1 document and print page 2. Year 2s, click on the Year 2 document and print page 2.
You might like to print off this letter formation mat. It will help you to check that you are starting each letter in the right place and forming it correctly.
Now you are ready to start your handwriting! Click on the video below to watch me handwrite the rhyme. If you are in Year 1, click on the first video and we will concentrate on forming each letter correctly. If you are in Year 2, you can choose to watch either video. Choose the first video if you want to practice forming each letter correctly. Choose the second video if you would like to have a go at joined up handwriting.



I have found a really good interactive clock that you might like to use on your laptop or tablet if you haven't got a clock or paper clock. Click on the link below:


Year 1:


Now you have learnt all about telling the time to o’clock and half past, today you are going to use this knowledge to help you add on hours and half hours to times. For example I start eating my lunch at half past 12. It takes me half an hour to eat my lunch. Use a clock to help you solve this. Remember for an hour the minute hand goes all the way/the whole way round the clock, but for half an hour the minute hand only goes half way round the clock. Watch my short video for a quick reminder.

Year 1 adding hours and half hours

Now click on the below link which is today’s lesson which includes a quiz, a video and an independent task. I have provided the worksheet that goes with the independent task. As the lady reads each word problem out pause the video and solve it using a clock to help you. Then press play and move on. Once you have finished the lady will show you the answers. Your follow up task today is to practise telling the time to o’clock and half past. I have added a list of times in the follow up task sheet below which I would like you to try and make. Send me some pictures of you making these times so I can see how you’re getting on.

Year 2:


Today you are carrying on learning to find the duration of time and using this to help you find out start times and finish times. Today this will be in hours and minutes. Click on the link below for today’s lesson, which includes a quiz, a video and an independent task. I have provided you with the worksheet for the independent task. Pause the video while you have a go at the independent task using a clock to help you. The lady will then go through the answers on the video.

When you have finished click on the link below to play a game to practise what you have learnt this week.


Let's start today by practising recognising our Phase 2-5 sounds. Click on the Power Point below and say each sound carefully.  You should all recognise all of these but it's good to practise them! If there are any that you find tricky, write them down ready to practise tomorrow.

Yesterday, Year 1s learnt that the letters 'wr' can make a 'r' sound in some words. Year 2s, you have learnt this grapheme before but we are going to practise it again today. Click on the Power Point below to remind you of some of the 'wr' words we learnt yesterday:

Have a go at this 'wr' wordsearch. Read each of the 'wr' words carefully and see if you can find where they are hiding:



Today in French you are going to listen to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk in French and then learn some words from the story in French.


Watch the video below.

Jack and the Beanstalk in French

Now watch my video to learn some of the words from the story in French. I have also added the word cards for you to look at too and print out if you want to. You might like to verbally retell the story but adding in some of the French words if you can! If you can, video yourself doing it as I'd love to hear your French. Enjoy!

Whole class story 2 pm


Join Mrs Pilgrim in Google Classroom at 2 pm for a story! Don't forget to join with your microphones turned off!



Before half term Mrs Miller taught you all the songs from Jack and the Beanstalk the musical. We thought that today you might like to go through all of them and perform a mini musical. When we're all back at school we can do it all together. Below are all the links to Mrs Miller's videos. Enjoy!
