Thank you all for the wonderful emails and messages Year Two. I have loved reading and replying to them, remember you can also upload your work on our class blog. I have enjoyed reading your spring poems and I was blown away by your rainbow posters. I am so proud to be your teacher and I have missed seeing your faces everyday. I hope you enjoy the work that I have set for you next week (30th March 2020).  Please keep the emails and messages coming, they brighten up my day!

Home Learning- Week Beginning 30th March 2020



We have already covered fractions but this is a great opportunity to embed your knowledge.

Start with lesson 6 


Remember to take your learning outside too, here are some ideas to get outside in your garden (not a park).

  • Practise counting in 2s, 5s, 3s and 10s.
  • Write a shopping list and add up how many items and add up the cost of some items.
  • Write the numbers 20-50 in words and digits.
  • Identify shapes around your home/garden
  • Look in different rooms and go on a number hunt. How many items can you find that have numbers on them? What is the largest number you can find? What is the smallest number you can find?
  • Chalk a large hundred square and practise forming your numbers



You do not have to do all of the activities below, you can upload what you do on our class blog or email me some pictures.

Remember not to rush your work!

  • Write your own version of The Little Red Hen, you can change the setting and the characters. I would like you to make a front cover for your book and a blurb. Remember that you need to include subordination, co-ordination and a range of punctuation.
  • Write an Acrostic Easter poem.
  • Make hot cross buns- Explain to the children that many Christians eat hot cross buns at Easter to remind them of the Easter story.

    With adult assistance, children to bake hot cross buns!

    Hot cross buns recipe:


1 tablespoon dried yeast

¼ cup caster sugar

1 cup (250mL) warm milk

4 cups plain flour

1 teaspoon all spice

60g butter, chopped

½ cup currants

½ cup sultanas

½ cup (125mL) warm water

1 egg, lightly beaten


Mixing bowl

Cling film

Piping bag/sandwich bag

Wire rack


1- Place yeast, sugar and milk in a small bowl, whisk until yeast dissolves.

2- Cover with plastic wrap, stand in a warm place for 10 minutes.

3- Sift flour, cinnamon and all spice into a large bowl and rub in butter.

4- Stir in yeast mixture, currants, sultanas, egg and water.

​​​​​​​5- Cover with plastic wrap and stand in a warm place for 1 hour or until mixture has doubled in size.

6- Grease a deep square tin with butter.

7- Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes.

9- Stand in warm place for 20 minutes or until dough has doubled in size.

10- Preheat oven to 180°C.

11- To prepare flour paste, combine flour and sugar in a bowl; gradually blend in enough water to form a thick smooth paste.

12- Spoon paste into a piping bag with a small plain tube or use a snap lock (sandwich) bag and cut off a tiny corner.

13- Pipe crosses onto buns, four long lines vertically and then horizontally across each row of buns.

14- Bake for 10 minutes then reduce heat to 160°C for about 20 minutes.

15- Turn onto a wire rack and allow buns to cool.

  • Write a set of instructions on how to make the hot cross buns (without looking at Miss Dance's)


Other activities 

  • Make a papier mâché egg and decorate it with pictures, symbols and words that represent the Christian meaning of Easter.

  • Draw a map of one of the rooms in your house. What symbols could you have? Where will you place items? Has your map got a key?
  • Fruit and vegetables- Draw pictures of fruit and vegetables in your home. Label the fruit and vegetables and place in alphabetical order. 
  • Look at the work of the artist: Lynn Flavell. How does she represent fruit and vegetables? Can you create a piece of artwork in the style of Lynn Flavell.
  • Seasons: Ask your child how many seasons we have. Can they name them? Ask them to look outside their window and see if they can name the season we are in at the moment. What can they see? Can they see any flowers? Or new buds? Can they draw a picture of what they can see using different materials?
