Week 2


Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all well and keeping safe. Well done to the children who have done all of their activities on Purple Mash from last week. Keep up the hard work everyone!

This week I would like you all to have to have a go at the following activities;

PE: 9.00 PE with Joe Wicks (Daily)


I will be completing the sessions along with you – don’t worry! See if you can spot the difference each day.

If you miss these, you can watch the videos afterwards on his YT channel

RWI (Daily)

10am Set 2 sounds

10.30 Set 3 sounds (This is a good recap for children who have finished RWI)

English (Daily)

This week I would like you to begin a diary of your time in self isolation (you could start this at the back of your project book)

 Can you

  • Write in past tense?
  • Use the words ‘I’, ‘my’, ’we’ and ‘our’?
  • Write about the important events in the order they happened?
  • Describe your feelings?
  • Use ‘next’, ‘first’ and ‘then’


I will keep one too and we can share our experiences when we are all back at school together.

Please make sure you read for 15 minutes each day. You might want to read your diary entry to a family member.

Maths (Daily) - chose an activity each day

  • Find some numbers around the house and chose 5 to order ascendingly and descending
  • Practise playing shops and using money to find totals and change
  • Recognise each coin
  • Make a number bond game to 20, challenge yourself to 30 or even 50
  • Play the doubles game on HIT THE BUTTON https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button


Science (Weekly)
Create a poster about HABITATS!

Watch this you tube clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrSWYE37MJs

Now watch it again and think about:

•           What is a habitat?

•           What must a habitat provide for the animals?

Explore these 4 habitats:

Polar Habitat:   https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx882hv/articles/z3sr4wx

Ocean Habitat: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx882hv/articles/zsfkd2p

Woodland Habitat: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx882hv/articles/zc42xnb

Rainforest Habitat: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx882hv/articles/zxdsvcw

You may use the internet to explore habitats further.

Make sure your poster has:

An eye catching bold title

  • Use neat writing
  • Include 4 different types of habitat
  • Use punctuation (Capital letters, full stops, ?, !)
  • Include drawings/diagrams
  • Tell the reader what a habitat is and what it needs to provide.



Who is Samuel Pepys?
Samuel Pepys was an eyewitness during the Great Fire of London.
This week you are going to be History detectives and find out all about him.
Make a fact file to show me everything you know.


I have assigned activities on purple mash to support this learning. It is under 2Dos.

Any questions please do not hesitate to ask through DOJO’s

If you are not set up to Year 2 class DOJO please send your email address to g.humphreys@stannesrc.oldham.sch.uk

Thank you for your continued support,

Stay safe,

Mrs Maders
