a Pathway to Success

Friday, 27th March

Good Morning Year 2,

Wow – Friday already! This week has flown by!

Here are your activities for today…


Go onto the Phonics Play website. You can access this on a tablet using the address         username: march20   password: home

Click on phase 5 on the menu that appears at the left hand side of the screen. Practice phonemes and tricky words using ‘phonics flashcards speed trial’ and ‘tricky word trucks’. Then, play the ‘Buried Treasure’ game.

Please see the 5 common exception words below for you to practice reading, writing and putting into a sentence.

Your words for today are: bath, people, because, every, hour.



We have attached a document containing a few pictures. Choose any one of the pictures and write a short story about it. Once you have written your story remember to check it using the proofreading skills you worked on earlier this week.

Be creative!

Parents, to achieve the best results please discuss the picture with your child before they start writing. Discuss what and who they can see in the picture. Help them to develop a story idea.



Warm up – 

Practise counting in 2s, 5s, 3s and 10s. I have thought of a slightly more exciting way for you to practice this. Write the multiples of 2 on pieces of paper. Ask someone to hide them around your garden or house. Then it is your task to find all of the numbers and put them in the correct order. Repeat with 5s, 3s and 10s.

Main Activity –

I hope adding tens to a 2 digit number went well yesterday! If you feel like you need to keep working on this please do carry on.

Today will be very similar to yesterday but instead of adding you will be subtracting multiples of ten from a 2 digit number.

Parents please help your child count backwards in tens to aid them with this task. It might be helpful to use a 100 square if your child is struggling with this. There is an interactive one online that you can use. Here is the link -  Again, remind them that the tens digit changes but the ones doesn’t.

Practise some questions together first e.g. 54-10, 68-30, 95-50 …

Then complete attached worksheet independently.


Have a lovely day and weekend!

Speak again on Monday 😊
