Year 2


Today we are going to continue to practise subtracting two 2-digit numbers. If you gain confidence with this today then try the prove it and use it activities. 


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 a guided mindfulness session aimed at children in order to support relaxation and mental focus.


Today we are going to get one step closer to writing our poem about winter for the bear. We are going to use our ideas from yesterday and turn these into sentences, You will need your work from yesterday to help you. 


  • Observe or handle evidence to ask questions and find answers to questions about the past.
  • Use artefacts, pictures, stories, online sources and databases to find out about the past.


Let's find out some facts about dinosaurs in the past. Today we are going to research one or more dinosaurs to find out their length, weight, height and a fun fact. 

We will then present the information we've researched. You could make a short film of the chosen dinosaur, a dinosaur PowerPoint or a poster of the dinosaur with these facts around the outside edge. (An example one is attached below) Can you use information in books, the internet, posters or magazines to research something from the past?


  • First, choose the dinosaur you would like to learn more about. The dinosaur’s pictures below are also attached as a PDF below. 
  • Find out the length, weight, height and a fun fact about your dinosaur. You could use the internet if supervised, look in a dinosaur book if you have one at home or use the information fact cards attached below. 
  • Here are some dinosaur websites with facts to help you.

  • You could make a short film of the chosen dinosaur, a dinosaur PowerPoint or a poster of the dinosaur with these facts around the outside edge. (See Triceratops example below)


Year 2 (Optional)- Can you find a dinosaur which is smaller in length than your dinosaur? Can you work out the difference between their lengths? e.g. An Apatosaurus is 12m longer than a Stegosaurus.  


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.
