Good Morning


I hope you are all keeping well and the work below all makes sense. Just let me know if you need anything.


Take Care and see you at registrations.

9:00 - 9:30 - Phonics - 'o' (Miss Oh No)


Look at the PPT about the 'o' grapheme that makes the long O sound. The CEWs go no so have an open long O vowel. Read the words on the PowerPoint. Read the common words that have this grapheme in the PowerPoint. Notice the position of the o grapheme.

Look at the flashcard video and count how many phonemes are in each word.

Watch the ‘Oh Miss Oh No’ video. Polo is a pink monster who is in love with Miss Oh No! Make the Miss Oh No (surprised hands in the air) action each time they hear an o word. Can yourecall all of the ‘o’ words in the video?

Imagine that you are Polo. Write a letter to Miss Oh No to tell her what he has sung in the song. Include as many o words as possible.

Tell Me a Story – Campfire Stories


Start the game with one person around the campfire and they speak a sentence. The next person adds a sentence to begin a story and then you continue around the campfire one person to another, one sentence at a time. You will be quite amused by the various directions the story might take.


Twenty Questions.

With this game one person is designated as the “thinker” and thinks of a subject (person, place or thing); the rest of the players ask one “yes or no” question at a time.

After the thinker answers with a “yes” or “no”, the “guesser” has one chance to guess the subject.

Each player around the campfire takes a turn until someone guesses correctly or 20 questions have been exhausted.

Meeting ID: 959 5574 2158

Passcode: year2​

I have attached a word document with all the information on too.


Pease complete science work in your home learning book and remember to take a photo and send it to Mrs Bennett. Mrs Bennett will pass it on to me. Any questions, please just get in touch.

This term our science topic is Living things and their habitats.


Science helps us to understand our amazing world. We can understand more about the world by being curious and asking questions.

Asking questions is a super science skill!


Today we are learning:

To be able to identify and name a variety of plants and animals in their habitats, including micro-habitats.



Deep thinking time –

Which habitats do you know of on our amazing planet Earth?


What does habitat mean?

It’s a place where an animal or plants live. The habitat provides the basic needs of the animals and plants so they can survive – shelter, food and water.


Watch this short clip and name as many habitats as you can.


Habitats include desert, coastal, pond, polar, woodland, rainforest and urban.


Within a habitat there are different micro-habitats e.g. in a woodland – in the leaf litter, on the bark of trees, on the leaves. These micro-habitats have different conditions e.g. light or dark, damp or dry. These conditions affect which plants and animals live there.



·         Choose one habitat from the list below to research.

·         Watch the video; complete the activity and the quiz by following the attached link.

·         Draw a picture of the habitat and the animals and plants that live there. Label your drawing.

·         Write a couple of sentences to explain why an animal or plant is suited to that habitat

·         Write one question about the habitat, an animal or plant that lives there. (Who?What?Why?Where?How?)



For example:

Polar habitats are cold, windy and covered in snow. A seal has lots of fat to keep it warm. Lichen plants survive by taking water from the ice.  

Question: How does a penguin keep warm?



What is an urban habitat?

What is a desert habitat?

What is a coastal habitat?

What is a pond habitat?

What is a polar habitat?

What is a woodland habitat?

What is a rainforest habitat?

Extension Activity

Purple mash -  Purple Mash by 2Simple

Explore your local habitat. How many different plants and animals can you name? Draw a picture or use purple mash or even take a photograph. Label it with as many local plants and animals that you can. Don’t forget to send Mrs Bennett your work. 

1:20 - 2:15 - Maths - 5 times table


Learning Objective: To be able to recall the 5 times-table.


Daily ten is great for practising arithmetic. Choose a level that you find comfortable doing but isn't too easy or hard (level 2 should be ok). Select addition or subtraction and choose how long you want to answer the questions. If you are finding it is too quick or too slow, adjust as you need to. Write the question in your book and answer them as quickly as you can.

Here are some different question ideas. Please don't feel like you have to do them all, I'm trying to find a range of ideas. You could even draw your own 5 -times-table house with your own 5x calculations and answers.
