Good morning Class 2!

Morning from Mrs Pilgrim


This week we have been writing the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Spend some time reading what you have written so far. Have you remembered each part of the story? Check your story map. Have you missed anything out? You should have written up to the part of the story where Jack is escaping from the castle. If you haven't quite got there yet, then carry on from where you got to.

When you are ready to write the end of your story, click on the video below to watch me write my first few sentences:

Now it's your turn! I have attached the usual resources below for you to print and use if you need them. Year 2s, remember your extra challenge? I asked you to try and change a small part of the story. Have you already changed something? If not, you could have a go today. Maybe you could change how the story ends.



Year 1:


Today you will be learning how to write o'clock and half past times in words. Click on the link below for today's lesson which includes a quiz, a video and an independent task. I have provided you with a follow up activity to complete as well. Good luck!

Year 2:


Today you will be learning about duration of time in minutes. Duration of time means how long something lasts for. For example, it takes me 20 minutes to drive to school. The duration is 20 minutes. If I leave home at 7:30 am what time do I get to school? Email me your answers!


First of all let's remind ourselves of some important information:

  • How many hours are there in a whole day (day and night)? 24 hours
  • How many hours are there in a day? 12 hours
  • How many hours are there in a night? 12 hours
  • How many minutes are there in an hour? 60 minutes

This will help you with your learning today if you know this information. 


Now click on the link below for today's lesson which includes a video and an independent task. Use a paper clock or a real clock to help you. You might like to try the quiz but this is up to you! I have also provided a follow up task for you to complete. Good luck!


Year 1:

Today we are going to learn that the letters 'wr' can make a 'r' sound in some words. Click on the video below for your phonics lesson:

Now have a go at the activity below:

Year 2:

Today we are going to continue learning to spell common exception words (tricky words). First have another look at the Year 1 and 2 Common Exception Word List.

Yesterday we learnt some mnemonics to help us remember how to spell some words. Today we are going to use mnemonics to help us learn how to spell some different common exception words. Click on the Power Point below:

Do you find the mnemonics helpful?

Look back at the word list of year 1 and 2 common exception words. Which of these words do you already know how to spell? Which words do you need to practice? Choose one of the words that you do not know. Make a poster to help you remember how to spell this word. Here is my poster for the word 'people' to give you an idea. I have used lots of the strategies we have used before in school: a mnemonic, pyramid word build, rainbow writing, word shape picture.

If you finish your poster quickly, you could have a go at making one for another word! 

Guided Reading with Blue Group at 2 pm


Mrs Pilgrim will be live in Google Classroom at 2 pm to read with the blue group. Today we will be reading Horribilly: Gloopy Food which Mrs Pilgrim has added to your Bug Club accounts. Please have it open and ready for our session. Don't forget once you've logged into Google Classroom you need to find the Blue Group space. Click into it then click on the video camera icon at 2 pm. See you there!
