Year 2 - Rabbits and Squirrels

Well we can hardly believe we're here on a Friday again - and this is the final Friday that we will be uploading work for the following week.  We hope you have found the weekly timetable and resources useful each week and we have certainly loved seeing your work uploaded to the Facebook page or through emails you have sent.  It's been great that the children who are at home have been doing the same learning as those children in school. 

Can we take this opportunity to thank you all for the hard work and effort you have put in to keep the home learning going - we know many of you have found it very challenging and we appreciate the hard work on your part as well as the children's effort too.

Our final week finishes off our term of Keeping Safe, Happy & Healthy with some lessons about Stranger Danger, Cycling Safety, Medicine Safety and spotting Dangers in the home.


We can't quite believe that we're here again - the weeks are whizzing by!  This week Purple Bubble have been learning about keeping safe around water and they enjoyed finding out about the brave sea rescue involving Grace Darling nearly 200 years ago.

Here are the resources needed for next week - all about fire safety.  We look forward to seeing your learning either on the Facebook page or via email.

Good afternoon everyone.  Well it's been a bit of a grotty week weather wise.  I'm glad we did our sun safety learning last week when it was actually bright and sunny!  This week we have looked at the importance of exercise to help us keep fit.  Hula-hooping has proved to be a very popular exercise here in the Year 2 bubble!

We have learnt that keeping active helps our heart and muscles become stronger, as well as exercise helping us feel happier and energised. 

Next week, we will be looking at safety around water.  During the summer, as lockdown measures ease we expect many families will spend time at beaches, near lakes and rivers etc.  We want to teach our children how to keep safe near these places.  Don't forget to upload your learning onto our Maun Community Facebook page or send us  an email using the address.

Keep up your reading on Bugclub too.

Happy Friday everyone - I hope you've had a lovely week in the sunshine, at least all our learning about sun safety has definitely been useful!

Here is the timetable and resources needed for next week (w/c 29th June).  Our focus for learning will be 'How exercise keeps us healthy'.

The Maths videos can be found on the Whiterose website - the link is on the timetable. For this week you need to access the videos in - Summer Term / Week 4 / w/c 11th May. 

Good Morning - when following the link for the maths home learning videos on Whiterose this week, please open up the Fractions videos under the tab for Summer Term - Week 7 - w/c 8th June.

Learning for w/c 22nd June.

Hello everyone - I hope you've enjoyed our week about Road Safety.  Next week's learning is all about keeping safe in the sun.  So here's hoping for nice sunny weather to make it relevant!  Thank you to those who continue to show your work on the Maun Community Facebook page - we'd always love to see more, or you can email your work to and we can get to see your learning that way.

Here are the CLIC challenges for Friday - the children should know which STEP

(top right corner of sheet) they are on.  But it doesn't matter if they want to work their way through all of them!

Learning for w/c 15th June.


Here is the timetable and resources for this week.  From speaking to a few parents last week, it seems that this is proving useful and many of you are finding it easier to plan your days for home learning.

This week we will begin to use the lovely new workbooks that have been sent home.  Please resist temptation to work through them at speed, the timetable will show clear instructions for which book / pages you need to access each day.  You can write straight into these books - they are for you to keep.  Remember, if your child is working from a year 1 workbook you will need to access the Hedgehogs and Badgers timetable to see what pages you need to complete each day.  This is on the Parent Support page.

There are handwriting videos on the Maun Community Facebook page to help you with formation of the curly caterpillar letters.  We also love to see your learning every week uploaded under the year 2 status on the Facebook page.

Don't forget to use the Take 5 link on the website to find our weekly mindfulness / breathing exercises.

Even though we can’t do our normal year 2 to year 3 transition, our links with Forest View are still strong and we are working together to make the transition smooth. Enjoy reading the PowerPoint below. 

Year 2 Transition Booklet

Weekly Learning for w/c 8th June.


We hope you found the timetable useful last week and were able to use it to help organise your week.  Here is the timetable for the week beginning Monday 8th June.  Below you will find the resources needed - you can either print these out if you are able to or you could make your own copy on to paper.

The key worker children who are in school will also be following a very similar timetable and completing some of the same work in class.

Hello - we hope you made a start to the Monday activities on our weekly timetable.  For Tuesday one of the activities is to listen to the story of Oliver's Vegetable by Vivian French.  Unfortunately, both Mrs Wright and Miss McGaw have their copies in school and are unable to make a video in time for Tuesday because we are also teaching in the key worker bubbles.  Here is a YouTube link to the story - you could use some of the vegetables either in your own soup recipe or in your vegetable dictionary.


Week beginning Monday 1st June

Below is a timetable for the whole week. This will help you structure your week with the school work. You can do a little bit each day. If any resources are needed, they are posted below. A photo of the timetable is below but you can open up the file to see it more clearly below. 


Friday CLIC Challenge

Friday 22nd May.


We have looked at different ways of writing the ‘or’ sound this week.

Practise your handwriting and spelling the words using al, aw & au.  Remember it is really important to look at the letter sizing - make sure tall letters are tall and if they have a tail , make sure it goes under your line.

Then look at the list of words in your handwriting – can you then draw and label your own pictures using the different words?  Can you put them into your own sentences using the conjunctions - and, because or but?

Thursday 21st May


Today we will revise the 3 alternative spellings for ‘or’ that we have looked at this week.

Using the pictures on the sheet, decide which spelling is correct and label each picture.


You can either print the sheet or draw your own and label correctly.  Try putting the words into sentences.

Wednesday 20th May

So far this week we’ve looked at ‘al’ and ‘aw’ for making the common ‘or’ sound.  Today we will look at the less used one of ‘au’.  This is used in words such as – autumn, August, haunted.

To begin with, have a go at this game. Using a dice (or an online dice on Google) see what you roll and what you need to read.  Can you spot any of the words you read in your any reading books this week?

Next, can you decide which of these ‘au’ words are real or nonsense words.  If you can print the sheet off, you can colour them in or you could make a list of real / nonsense words.  We would then like you to write some of the real ‘au’ words into your own sentences.  Another task could be to find out the meaning of these words and write the definitions to create your own 'au' dictionary page.

Tuesday 19th May

This week we are looking at alternative spellings of the phoneme ‘or’.  Yesterday we looked at the ‘al’ spelling.  Today we shall focus on the ‘aw’ spelling.

We see this version of ‘or’ in words such as – hawk, draw, awful, crawl.

Watch this video clip to see some more words -


Can you spot all the ‘aw’ words in this postcard?  Make a list of the words you find and then write them into you own sentences.

counting - Today count in 5s. Find all the multiples of 5 on a 100 square. What patterns do you notice? 
Learn Its - re-cap the calculations from yesterday. This will help you for yorFriday challenge. 
It’s Nothing new- coin multiplication. Look at the 2 digit numbers. Times each number by 1 then by 10. Can you see any patterns. For example - 1 x 34  10 x 34     1 x 23    10 x23


Calculations - add tens numbers


50 +90 =     60 +50 =       70 + 70=.        80+40=

keep telling the time. 

Telling the Time

At the beginning of lockdown, the first week we asked you to keep telling the time. Through talking to parents, some of you are still doing this. This is great, the best way to learn is to keep trying. Below are a few activities to help you.

1. Start with o'clock. Every time you see it is an o clock time, ask your child "What is the time?" Keep doing this until they get o clock. To challenge them you could ask them "What time will it be in one hours time?" of "What time was it an hour ago?"


2. Then move onto half past. The minute hand has moved half way around the clock face. Do the same thing again, every time it is half past, ask your child "What is the time?"


3. Then move onto quarter past, then quarter to.  


4. Talk to the children about the hands, hour hand - short hand, minute hand - long hand, second hand usually thinner and a different colour. 

How many seconds in a minute?

How many hours in a hour?

How many hours in a day? 

Keep asking these questions, until they go into their long term memory.  Eventually your child will be confident with telling the time.

Telling the time can be an ongoing activity, do this practically everyday so your child gets more confident. 



 Learning Pit

At school we talk to the children about being a persevering parrot 🦜 and not giving up when they find things challenging. In each class, we have a learning pit. We explain to the children that it is ok to be at the bottom of that learning pit. This is good learning. Slowly, with hard work and perseverance you will come out of the learning pit and you will feel fantastic when you are successful. This feeling will drive you on to do other challenging tasks. Use this learning pit with the children at home. Learning isn’t easy at the moment, but with a positive attitude and perseverance the children will get there! Happy learning. 

Learning pit

Monday 18th May.

We have now completed the word lists for the Year 2 Common Exception Words.  Over the next few weeks we will post a revision activity every Monday to complete.

Today we have 2 tasks.  (to print off if you can – or an adult could make a version for you)

  • Using the Fish sheet.  Choose 12 words each day.  Practise reading and spelling them – if you get the word correct you can colour in that section of the fish.  By the end of the week you should have a beautiful fish picture to help you remember these words.
  • We have looked at how to ‘box up’ a word.  Using the ‘Guess the Word’ sheets can you fill in the missing letters.  Remember the shapes of the boxes will help you know which type of letters you need.



This week’s spelling focus will be looking at alternative spellings of the ‘or’ phoneme.

We commonly use ‘or’ in words like – fork, short, corn.

This week we will look at the alternative spellings using – al, au & aw

Today we are looking at ‘al’.  This is the phoneme used in words such as – walk, stalk, ball, fall.  This digraph (2 letters making one sound) is often followed by another ‘l

Have a look at the story below – how many ‘al’ words can you spot?  Remember the ‘al’ needs to make the ‘or’ sound.

Make a list of the words you find and then put them into your own sentences.



There was once a very tall man called Mr Chalk who lived with his dog, called Fido. Every day, he put on his hat and coat in the hallway, picked up a ball and said,

‘Come on, Fido! It’s time for your walk.’

Fido and his owner always went the same way so that Mr Chalk could have a talk with his friend Bob at his flower stall in the market. On the way, as they passed the old castle walls, the rain started to fall in enormous splashy drops so they ran to the market hall as fast as they could.

6+8= ___      5+7= +____   5+8= ___    5+9=___   6+9=___      7+9= _____


It's Nothing New - Coin multiplication - The building blocks for coin multiplication come about by taking a given number (usually a 2d number) and then finding the 1st, 2nd, 5th, 10th and 20th multiples of the number. They can find these multiples by simply multiplying by 10, halving and doubling. This week, we are going to start with finding the first and 10th multiple.

Tuesday 12th May.

We are looking at the ‘shun’ suffix this week.  Today we will continue to look at the ‘tion’ spelling.

I’d like an adult to read out these words to you.  First clap the syllables in each word then have a go at spelling them.  Remember that they will all have the ‘tion’ suffix.

  • station
  • fiction
  • motion
  • nation
  • section
  • competition
  • lotion
  • direction
  • fraction.


Once you’ve got the correct spelling of each one.  Have a go at writing them out by ‘boxing up’ the words.  This is when we use boxes around the phonemes to show tall (ascenders), small and tail letters (descenders).

There is also a Boxing Up sheet for you to try.  You need to fit the words on the sheet into the correct box shapes.

CLIC - Maths Tuesday 12th May

Counting - Use Squiggleworth to help you partition 2d numbers. A challenge for you, if I partition the number can you put it back together again.

Monday 11th May.

Good morning everyone.  I hope you enjoyed the sunshine this weekend and the VE day celebrations, if you took part in any. 

We are now on the last set of Common Exception words to learn.  This final set has 13 words.  Remember to keep practising the other ones.  We will do some revision of the words over the coming weeks.

  1. climb
  2. most
  3. only
  4. both
  5. every
  6. after
  7. Mr
  8. Mrs
  9. everybody
  10. even


This week our spelling focus will be the suffix that sounds like ‘shun’.  This can be made using ‘tion’ / ‘sion’ and ‘cian’.  Its sounds like ‘shun’

This is a tricky one because it isn’t spelt how it sounds.  But there is a rule to help us.

The most common ‘shun’ suffix is ‘tion’.  This is the one will look at this week.

If the root word ends with 't' or 'te' / or if there is no definite root word then we use -tion: invent – invention, celebrate – celebration

Use the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check sheet to practice your spelling of these words.  You can either print these out or write your own versions out.

Wednesday 6th May

Today the focus for your handwriting is –

  • The long vowel sound ‘igh’ written as ‘y’, used in words such as – cry, fly, reply

  • Contractions.  Last week you used the apostrophe to show possession, but in the past, we have used the apostrophe to show missing letters in contracted words such as – can’t, I’ll, they’re.


Remember to use you words in sentences of your own.

Wednesday 6th May - Maths

We are continuing with work on Fact families. You will use some of knowledge from CLIC when you have thought about related facts, for example; 1+2=3,  10+20=30

2x table game

Tuesday 5th May.

Every day this week we will continue to give you a chance to practise spelling patterns and rules that we have already learnt in class this year.  Each day will consist of 2 handwriting sheets (either to print out or to copy yourself on lined paper). Once you have practised writing the words, we would like you to use them in your own sentences.  Can you spot the words in any books?  Can you write a story using as many of the words that you can?  Can you draw a picture containing as many of the words and label them all?   Don’t forget we’d love to see your work posted to the Year 2 thread on the Maun Community Facebook page.


Today the focus is –

‘le’ at the end of words as the ‘l’ sound when used in words such as - apple / table / bubble

  • This is the most common spelling so it’s the one you should try first if you’re unsure when spelling words.

‘el’ as the ‘l’ sound when used in words such as – camel / tunnel / squirrel

  • This one always follows the letters m, n, r, v, w
  • There are some exceptions to the rule – but it’s always best to follow the rules you know.

Here’s a video to recap the rule.

Maths - Tuesday

Since September we have learnt lots of different spelling rules and patterns.  Today we’d like you to practice handwriting some words using rules we have already learnt.  These rules are –

  • The soft ‘c’ sound.  When it makes a ‘s’ sound in words such as – icy, face, city.
  • Using silent ‘k’ and ‘g’ before an ‘n’ in words such as – know, knife, gnat, gnome.
  • The alternative ‘r’ sound using silent ‘w’ in words such as – write, wrote, wrong.
  • The letter ‘g’ making a ‘j’ sound in words such as – gem, giant, magic.


Use the handwriting sheets (either to print out or to copy yourself) and practice these words.  If you are writing them out onto paper, make sure you have lines as this will help you to stay neat.  Think carefully about the sizing of your letters and how they are formed.

Use the image below to remind you of the formation / sizing of the letters.

Once you have written the words choose some to put into your own sentences.  Remember your capital letters and full stops and may be try to use some conjunctions like – and, but & because.

Monday - CLIC

Remember an apostrophe is used to show when something belongs to someone or something.

Use the pictures to write a sentence about them – making sure you use a possessive apostrophe.  Don’t worry if you can’t print off the sheet, you can draw the pictures yourself to write a sentence for them. 

For example - The girl's dress is stripy.

Maths - White Rose 

see if you can find a half. Remember you need two equal parts.

Spelling Focus for w/c 27th April.  Possessive apostrophe.

Monday 27th April

An apostrophe is a punctuation mark that looks like this  ' It is used in different ways.  In class we have already learnt about using it in contracted words like – can’t isn’t, don’t.  This week we are looking at how to use an apostrophe to show possession.  We call this a possessive apostrophe as it shows that something belongs to someone or something.

For example –

The Queen’s crown was shiny.   (The crown belongs to the Queen)

Sally’s mum gave her some pocket money.  (Mum belongs to Sally)

At the pond, the toad jumped on the frog’s lilly-pad.  (the lilly-pad belongs to the frog)


Rewrite these sentences and put in where the apostrophe is needed to show possession.  You could then draw the pictures to go with them and come up with your own sentences.

Dans bike was broken.

The childrens assembly was about Harvest time.

I wore my sisters dress to a party.

The flowers petals blew away in the wind.

At the café, the waiter brought the mans soup to the table.

CLIC - Monday 27th April

Counting- I can understand numbers to 20. This week you can play with numbers to 20. Make your own number line from 0 - 20. Pick 2 numbers from your number line and compare them 

13 is greater than 11.             12 is less than 19.  Can you put the correct symbols in to show this? < or >.


Learn its - 

Try these calculations. How quickly can you solve them. 

7+4 =      8+4=     9+4=       8+3=        9+3=    

Can you see any patterns? Can you write out the fact family for each multiplication. You need to have 2 additions and 2 subtractions for each one.


It's Nothing New -

Add tens 30 +40=      60+20=      20+80=        10+50=

Can you make your own calculations up?

How many different ways can you make 80, only adding tens. Can you spot any patterns?


Addition -

I can add 10 to any 2 digit number.

43+10=       67+10=      21+10=     45+10=

Now write your own. Can you spot any patterns?

Maths - week beginning 27th April.

This week we are making equal groups. This work will lead into making simple fractions.

Could you rewrite this story neatly and illustrate it with pictures?

Could you write your own silly story using ‘ies’ words?


I know some ladies who ride ponies but the ponies keep stopping to eat berries! At least they don’t eat the lovely daisies. The ladies babies have to stay in the garden and enjoy the clear blue skies with their nappies. On the way back, the ladies found some pennies and saw some wild bunnies. Suddenly, two lorries came and scared them away. Maybe the bunnies were spies!

Measuring problems

Tuesday 21st April.

Today we will continue the spelling rule from yesterday for changing words ending in ‘y’ to a plural.   Do you remember the rules?  

Here’s a reminder rap!

Today’s focus is on the rule when we need to drop the ‘y’ change it for ‘i’ and add ‘es’.

Using the worksheet complete the ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check’ for words that this rule applies to.



look at the challenge cards below and see how many you can complete. Don’t forget to upload your photos of your work onto the Facebook post so we can see all your hard work. Go for it children, we are so proud of you all. 

Measuring Challenges Tuesday 21st April

Monday 20th April.

Welcome back after our Easter break.  We are back and raring to go with some new learning for this term.  This week we have another set of 10 Common Exception Words for you to learn.  We hope you’ve been continuing to learn and practise the 20 that we have already set you in previous weeks.

This week your 10 words are –

  1. fast
  2. last
  3. past
  4. father
  5. class
  6. grass
  7. pass
  8. plant
  9. path
  10. bath


 Spelling Focus for week of Monday 20th April.

This week we are looking at the spelling rule for changing words ending in ‘y’ into plurals. 
Such as toy – toys, key – keys, baby – babies, lorry – lorries.

There are 2 main rules to know.

Rule 1.

If the letter before the ‘y’ is a vowel (a,e,i,o,u) then you simply add an ‘s’ to make it a plural.  This happens in words like – toys, keys, monkeys, trays, boys etc.

Rule 2.

This rule is slightly trickier and will be the main focus this week. 

If the letter before the vowel is a consonant (all other letters of alphabet except vowels)  then you need to drop the ‘y’ and change it to ‘i’ then add ‘es’

This happens in words like – babies, families, stories, berries.

Watch the tutorial video on -

There is a quiz to do at the end.

Maths 20th April

New week, new learning. This week in maths we are going to do measuring so get those rulers ready!


1. use your cm ruler to draw lines at different lengths. See if you can draw lines counting in 2s, see how they get longer each time.

2. use your knowledge of times tables. Get an adult to give you a stable to solve, 4x2= then use your ruler to draw a line that length.

3. solve an addition problem. Fred needs two bits of string. He cuts one length at 20cm. He cuts the second length at 13cm. How many cms does he cut altogether?

4. draw Simple shapes using a ruler. Challenge yourself by making the sides 5cm long. Draw a square, triangle and hexagon. What else can you draw? 

happy measuring 😀

Friday 3rd April.

It’s our final homophone lesson, we’re finishing off with another day looking at their, there & they’re.

Watch the video and do the quiz -



their = belonging to someone

there = direction or position of something

they’re = contraction of they are


Now complete these sentences using the correct homophone. Don’t forget your neat handwriting.

Thursday 2nd April.

We’re still looking at homophones today, but we are focussing on their, there & they’re.

Watch the video on - 

and have a go at the activities on there too.

Complete these sentences choosing the correct homophone.

Wednesday 1st April.

For today's homophone learning, we would like you to read these sentences.  Then in your best handwriting write the sentences out - but make sure you choose the correct homophone to copy.

Tuesday 31st March.

Today we are continuing with homophones.

Look at the picture clues and words below.  Can you match the right homophone to the right clue.

Then use the homophones to write them in your own sentences.

This Week's Spelling Focus - w/c 30th March


This week our focus for spelling is – homophones.

We know that homophones are words that sound the same but have different spellings and meanings.  Words such as – sea/see, flour/flower,  sail/sale.


Monday 30th March.

Play the matching game on here and then see if you can write a list of as many homophones that you can remember.

Monday 30th March - Weekly Common Exception Words Spellings


Good morning everyone, we hope you had a lovey weekend.  Hopefully, you spent some time last week learning the 10 common exception words that you were set as well as the daily spelling focus on other words.  This week your 10 spellings are these words - 

1. old

2. cold

3. gold

4. hold

5. told

6. great

7. break

8. steak

9. pretty

10. beautiful


You can learn the words in as many fun ways that you can think of.  Mrs Wright saw a video the other day of someone who stuck words on the wall and the children had to shoot their Nerf Guns at the right word!  You could hide words around the garden and go on a word hunt, make a word-search  or try and spot as many as you can in a book.  Anything you can think of to help you spell them.

Look at the images of the jugs. Read the measurement under each jug and colour the jug to show the correct volume. Make sure you look at the scales carefully. They might not all be counting in ones. 

colour the jugs

How much is in each jug?

Maths - Capacity Tuesday

Yesterday you were sorting containers from smallest to largest. You may have even seen how many cups fill a container. Today, have a look at the side of a jug and you will see a scale there. When we measure liquid, we measure it in millilitres and litres. Using a jug read the measurements below and fill the jug up with water.

200ml,  600ml,  400ml,  800ml,  500ml


Can you pour in 550ml? 


If you have two jugs, pour water into both then add them up. How much have you got altogether?  300ml + 400ml = 700ml

Try:  200ml + 600ml=             700ml + 100ml =                 800ml + 700ml = 

Subtracting: If you have 800ml and you pour away 400ml how much have you got left?

Try: 700ml - 200ml =             900ml - 300ml =                         800ml - 500ml =

Capacity Problem

Daily English.


Everyday we will upload an English activity for you to do.  This will be usually linked to a spelling focus that we would have been teaching in class if we were in school.  These will be different words to the 10 common exception words that we will post each Monday.

The children will need to practise reading / spelling the words and do the daily activity.  They can then practise using the words in full sentences using capital letters and full stops with neat handwriting. 

Learn its Challenge 


Every Friday we do a Learn Its Challenge. The children have one minute to answer the following questions. They never get the whole set finished in a minute, the idea is they try and beat their score each week. Write out the calculations for the children. There are two challenges below, step 5 and step 6. Ask your child which one they do. 

They don't have to do them in order, just go for it. Happy Calculating! 

Step 5:

6 + 3 = 3 + 5 = 6 + 6 = 10 x 1 = 10 x 10 =
2 + 9 = 6 + 2 = 7 + 7 = 7 + 4 = 6 x 10 =
4 + 2 = 5 + 2 = 9 + 9 = 9 + 3 = 4 + 8 =
4 + 3 = 7 + 2 = 8 + 8 = 10 x 8 = 10 x 3 =
      5 x 10 = 2 x 10 =
      4 + 9 = 9 x 10 =
      10 x 7 = 3 + 8 = 
      4 x 10 =  



 Step 6:

6 + 6 = 8 x 10 = 4 + 9 = 9 x 5 =  8 + 9 = 
7 + 7 = 10 x 7 = 10 x 3 = 6 + 5 = 8 + 7 =
9 + 9 = 9 + 3 = 2 x 10 =  10 x 5 = 5 x 8 =
8 + 8 = 10 x 10 = 6 x 10 = 5 + 4 = 4 x 5 =
  4 + 7 = 8 + 3 = 5 x 2 = 7 + 6 =
  10 x 1 = 9 x 10 = 3 x 5 = 6 x 5 = 
  4 + 8 = 4 x 10 =  1 x 5 = 5 x 7 = 
  10 x 5 =   5 x 5 =  



Maths - Telling the time

Your day is probably set up into sections exercise, phonics, maths, free time, creative time etc. We would like you to take the opportunity to link telling the time to these activities. Start with o'clock and and half past the hour. What time are you starting your exercise? What time are you starting your phonics? Keep a time diary, draw a picture or write a sentence next to the time of what you are doing. Keep looking at the clock and telling the time.
