Y2 Home Learning Monday 1.2.21

Here is the blog for Monday 1.2.21

Monday 1.2.21  


We will be doing Guided Reading on Thursday. We have attached the text (A Tale of Two Feathers) today, so that your child reads it, or so that you can read it with your child, before the session.  

For the live maths lesson your child will need some practical apparatus to use for sharing/division of numbers. This can be dried pasta, pebbles, bricks etc. 


Phonics - part of the live lesson 

We will deliver a short phonics lesson, in the live lesson.   

If you missed the live lesson, the PowerPoint video is here:  

After the live lesson you can play any game on Phonics Play related to the sound:  oy (toy for a boy). Username: Thrapston Password: Thrapston  


English  - introduced in the live lesson 

LO: To be able to use subordinating conjunctions in a sentence.  

Yellow: Verbally say sentences. 

Blue: Use because in a sentence. 

Blue: Use full stops and capital letters.  

Green: Use a variety of subordinate conjunctions. 

White: Check your sentences make sense.  

In Monday’s English lesson, we will be revisiting subordinating conjunctions. The children can either use the pictures or think of their own ideas when thinking of sentences. If your child normally does yellow, then they need to verbally say sentences out loud. If your child normally does blue, they need to use the subordinate conjunction ‘because’ in a sentence. If your child normally does green, they need to use a variety of subordinate conjunctions including ‘if’, ‘that’, ‘because’ and ‘when’ in sentences. If they normally do white, then they need to check that the sentence make sense and that they are using the correct subordinate conjunction in their sentence.

Maths  - introduced in the live lesson 

On Monday we will be using practical apparatus to learn about division. We will start this week by looking at division as sharing into groups and will then move onto other methods of calculation. 

The blue and green questions should be calculated by grouping the practical apparatus which you have at home. This can be shown with a photo and the children can write their answers on the sheets.  

(If the children have calculated mentally could they please show their understanding of the groups by making their apparatus show the groups.) 

For white activity today, the children will be investigating numbers and seeing how many different equal groups the number can be made into. They will show their answers as a division statement. They can use practical apparatus or known facts to figure these out.  

If you missed the live lesson, the narrated PowerPoint can be found here:  


LO: To be able to practically calculate division statements by sharing into equal groups. 

Use practical apparatus and grouping to solve ÷ 10 and 2. (Blue) 

Use practical apparatus and grouping to solve÷ 10, 2, 5, 3. (green) 

Investigate different ways to divide the numbers into equal groups. (White) 



This week we are continuing our local area study. In this lesson, we will be learning about different map symbols and what they mean. After this, we will discuss which symbols can be found on a map of Thrapston to tell us what there is to do in our local area.  


Here is a link for the PowerPoint for today’s lesson:


To be able to recognise the symbols used on an Ordnance Survey map.  

Match the symbol to its meaning. (Blue) 

Write which symbols are in your town. (Green) 

Write about which symbols are in your town and why they are important. (White) 


Morning PowerPoint  

A quick activity, that would usually be on the board in the morning, to kick-start the day.   


10 Minute Maths 

There are a few quick maths questions to recap or introduce new topics. We usually do this three times a week to kick-start the afternoon.
