Year 2


Our learning focus today is to compare 3D shapes by thinking about how their properties are similar and different. 


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 shows a calming fire burning with the sounds of the logs crackling.

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.

Today we would like you to complete your plan for your letter to Mum. Its important to plan to make sure we collect all of ideas down in an organised way so that it's easier when we start to write.
