Year 2C is taught by Mrs Macdonald
Hello Year 2,
We hope that you have enjoyed the activities that we have given you to do over the past couple of weeks.
Here are some activities that you might like to do during the Easter holidays.
- Continue to read as much as you can. Try to get experience of different text types including poetry.
- Visit Spelling Play via Phonics Play for Phase 6 activities and for revising spelling patterns. After Easter we will be looking at where and how to use apostrophes.
- Continue to practise 2x, 5x and 10x tables and learn division facts too. You could play TTRockstars or visit www.topmarks to play maths games.
- Have a look around for some signs of spring. You could draw pictures or take photos of something that interests you.
- Practise telling the time. This is an area we will be working on after Easter.
- Have a look in your homes for examples of common 2D and 3D shapes. Make a list of what you find also looking at how many faces, sides and corners there are.
- If you have any spare boxes you could create a model of something.
- Finally, remember to enjoy some exercise every day.
We hope you all have a lovely Easter and we will have some new activities ready for you on Monday 20th April. Please contact us if you have any queries.
Best wishes, Mrs Penny, Miss Sowman and Mrs Macdonald

Computing – As we have now finished our Computing work on online safety we were just about to move on to Stop Frame Animation or Stop Motion. Here is a link that will briefly explain what Stop Frame Animation is:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVjMFU11hVA (Remember our online safety rules: check with an adult first or watch with an adult).
We were going to use the Animate It Lite app (it’s free!) so ask an adult if they can download it for you. Some of you may already have some stop frame software that you know how to use. If you use Animate It Lite then the Animate It website (https://animate-it.com/) has lots of useful tips, ideas and resources.
What you create is up to you but we have included some examples to give you some ideas.
Using paper shapes – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xo2ioUYugMA
Using plasticine/playdough – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kA2XrXeHSRg
Drawing – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPjMI4Pk_Ls
In addition, you could animate real people, Lego, dolls, dinosaurs, toys…pretty much anything you can think of!
There is no deadline to this, just enjoy exploring and creating!

English – Research and write down some facts about the life and works of Quentin Blake.
Art – Following on from yesterday’s history, we would like you to have a go at creating a self-portrait in the style of Quentin Blake. You can watch this video to help you.
You don’t need to use a dip pen and ink as shown in the video, you can just use a black pen. It is up to you whether you then colour your self-portrait or leave it black and white. You can focus on drawing just your head and shoulders or you might like to draw yourself from head to toe.
Maths – Complete one of the Buying Easter Egg money sheets.
English – Create an Easter acrostic poem. Remember to carefully join your letters. You could draw a picture to go with it.

English – Watch the Cinquain PowerPoint and create your own Easter cinquain poem.
Science – Research and make a list of different things that change once they are heated. For example, if you toast a piece of bread can it be changed back to how it was before it was toasted? If you boil an egg can it be changed back to how it was before it was boiled? You could melt some chocolate and mix in some shredded wheat or another cereal of your choice to make a chocolate nest to put in your Easter basket.
Maths – Complete one of the Easter subtraction worksheets .
