In Maths this week we have been practising finding the difference on a number line. Some children really enjoyed this method and I’m sure they would love to teach their families how to do it. In Literacy we have been learning how to write Chronological reports and how to use sub headings. In our Design and Technology this week we designed are own flags. With Mrs Davis we created our own masks.


Home Learning

For Home Learning this week I would like the children to complete the place value colouring activity. Please feel free to change the colours.

Support tips:

  • Encourage your child to solve the calculation first and then to colour it in on the hundred square.
  • Some children might prefer to solve all of the calculations first and then to start colouring them in.


Spellings this week are linked to our Phonics learning on prefixes/suffixes and some common exception words for year 2.

Spellings Group 1- wishes, foxes, unkind, uncover, dislike, bigger, biggest, slower, slowest nicest.

Spellings Group 2- princesses, guesses, disappear, invisible, happiest, funniest, even, everybody, half, again.

Times tables- Next week we will be practising the multiplication/division facts for the 2 x table.



If the children have their own recorders remember to bring them in.


Thank you for your continued support
