Monday 8th June

Good morning Year 2 I heard that you are learning all about owls this week. Here is one that is saying hellooooo to you as you start a new week!

1. The Daily Three - Maths


Mental Maths - NUMBOTS: 

You did so well last week that we are having one more week of our daily Numbots challenge!  Have a go at moving up a level this week.  Remember to have your user name and password ready.  It is in home school pack and in the cover of your blue Home School book.


WHITE ROSE MATHS:  We are working from the alternative planning for Week 7.  Here is the link:



Today it would be great if you found a few items and you put price on them (not more than 40p each) then have a go at Playing shopkeepers when the video tells you to.  Then carry one working through today’s teaching.

At the bottom of the page I have attached the worksheets.


2. The Daily Three- Literacy


Today please answer the questions from Chapter 6 and 7: ‘The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark’. 

There is a set of questions for each group: Pink Group, Red Group and Yellow and Blue Group (at the bottom of the page)

As a reminder to help you if you cannot remember what happens in each chapter of the story, you can listen to each chapter of the story from

Week 6:

Monday - Chapter 6

Tuesday – Chapter 7


TODAY'S Phonics: 

Pine and Maple group:  The next sound we will be practicing again are the: ‘’ double letters which only make one sound but need to remember to use them in our spelling.  Click on the link to see how Mr Thorne does Phonics watch the both the videos all the way through.

Then watch it again pausing so that you can write words in your books.  There are lots this week just choose ten of them.  Practice each word 3 times


Holly Group: This week's sound is ‘ew’ as in brew or ‘ue’ as in Tuesday. 

Watch Mr Thorne does phonics with Geraldine for both sounds and choose the words from each to practice 3 times:

Ew -

Ue -


Oak Group: 

This week we are going to practice the spelling of words ending in ness which end in ‘y’ because the spelling then changes to an ‘i’ before the suffix.

Practice writing words 3 times ending in ness:  happiness, laziness, silliness, ugliness, emptiness

Here are a few more:


3.  The Daily Three – Creative Art and poetry


This week we are going to see if we can be creative and do some art as well as shape poetry all about owls and trees. 


Today we are going to make an owl picture using scraps of paper.  Have a good look at the type of owl you are going to choose!

You will need a piece of paper, scraps of paper (You can use any type of paper from: magazines, newspapers, old wrapping paper or whatever you find at home) and some scissors and glue.

You might then draw an owl with outstretched wings or sitting in a tree.

Here are a few I found:


I WOULD LIKE EVERYONE TO CREATE AN OWL COLLAGE PICTURE so we can put it on display!  Please put it on Class Dojo.
