Y2- Home Learning Friday 26th February

Y2- Here is the Home Learning for 26/2/21

Friday 26.2.21  

Next week’s optional project is DT: food. The second session will involve tasting fruit, and the penultimate session will involve making a fruit salad. If you would like to take part in this optional project, and you are doing your shopping before the weekend, you might like to pop some extra, or different, fruit into your shopping trolley. We have recommended that the children use up to four different pieces of fruit in their final fruit salad. If you don’t have access to additional fruit please don’t worry, whatever fruit that you usually have will work perfectly, or your child could just do the design sessions.

Today, you need to use your plan that you wrote on Wednesday and the first half of your diary entry that you wrote yesterday and write the second part of your diary entry about Scaredy Squirrel finding the perfect friend. Once you have finished writing it you need to read it out loud to check that it makes sense. Check that you have included the features of a diary in your writing. Edit and improve your writing where you need to.

On Friday, we are going to continue with our maths mystery. This will involve us using the skills that we have been learning over this term and a few from last term. Today this will involve calculating fractions and completing number patterns. 

The work will be differentiated by the amount of support which you give to your child and if your child uses apparatus/drawing methods/mental calculation to solve questions. 


Blue – will need support from an adult and may use apparatus/possibly a drawing method. 

Green – independent work, may use drawing or mental method. Maybe a little support. 

White – completely independent work and mostly mental methods used.
