Year 2


Today we will be using everything we have learnt so far about 2D shapes to compare their properties.


In Key Stage One phonics is taught in phonics groups rather than classes. The phonics groups each work at a different ability level, therefore there are different phonics videos for each group. Your child will know who their phonics teacher is, but if you need clarification please message your child's class teacher on class dojo for confirmation. 

Please see the links below.

Mindfulness focuses on paying attention to the present moment (thoughts and feelings) as well as the world around you. This can improve mental wellbeing. The link below is to a guided deep breathing session in order to support relaxation and mental focus.


The children will still be in role as Tony today and they will be thinking about how he might be feeling at different points throughout his day and writing interesting feeling words to explain this. 

Shared reading 


Shared reading involves children joining in with the reading and comprehension of a text whilst guided and supported by an adult. The text can be read by an adult if it is tricky or the child can read it themselves. The reader should be encouraged to use expression in voice and note the features of the text e.g. the title, any illustrations, the author/ illustrator and the structure of the text. Shared reading aims to improve comprehension skills known as VIPERS (vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval of information and sequencing). During shared reading the children are encouraged to ask and answer comprehension questions either verbally or in written form and any feedback about the text should be encouraged and discussed.


Please see the links below for the shared reading text and tasks. 


R.E (Religious Education)


Today we are going to be learning more about Judaism. What can you remember from the lessons we have already done?

We began to explore the importance of Moses and Abraham to Judaism. We also looked at a special symbol for Jewish people- The Star of David. Afterwards, we focused on the place of worship for Jewish people (the Synagogue) and how they show their beliefs.


Today we are going to be recapping what we know about Synagogues and then we are going to explore other religious artefacts that are important to Jewish people. 

Task 1: 

Recap the information about the Synagogue, you could do this by watching the video link below or look at the PowerPoint resource below "Places of worship Jewish Synagogues".

Try this interactive labelling game on the link below (you may need to create a username and password to log in)

If you are having difficulty with the interactive game, you could try the paper version "Label the Synagogue" (see the resources below). 

Task 2: 
Now have a look at the "Jewish Symbols and Meanings" information (see resource below).

Can you write down the name of 3 Jewish symbols and draw a picture of them?
