Thursday 7th Jan


Hello, Year 2!

I hope you had fun experimenting with the many different shades you can make with just a single pencil yesterday. It was fantastic to see your efforts on Tapestry.
It's a great skill to keep practising yes 


We look forward to seeing you on zoom later!



Here is your suggested timetable for the day


  • Watch the video ‘Using the x symbol’ on today’s page.
  • Complete the questions showing that you understand that the ‘x’ symbol means the same ‘groups of’.
  • Write the multiplication number sentence to match the pictures of groups.
  • Extension: Create your own number sentence using the ‘x’ symbol and draw the pictures to match.
  • Have a go at some of the problem solving and reasoning questions. Remember to explain your answer to show you really understand the question. This can be done verbally with someone in your house.


  • Head to Tapestry to find your group’s assigned phonics/SPaG activity.


  • Grab a healthy snack and get outside for some fresh air for a run around, a kick around or a bit of fresh air.


  • Time to finish writing your biography on Vincent van Gogh. Use your facts from Monday (or the planning sheet provided) to write facts under the subheadings:
  • Famous Paintings
  • Fun Facts
  • His Legacy

Remember: you don't have to write down all the facts! Pick the ones you find the most interesting.

  • Use the model biography to help you structure your biography as well as the features checklist.


  • Enjoy some lunch and get outside for fresh air.


  • Reread or listen to Miss Williams read ‘The Most Magnificent Thing’ focusing on how the characters might be feeling.
  • Look at the illustrations and write a list of emotions to match the pictures. Use the feelings wheel to help.
  • Can you explain why they might be feeling like that?


  • Have a discussion about what things we need and things we want in our life.
  • Sort the things into the table and see if your family agree.


  • Watch the video of Mrs Atkins describing how to draw texture using pencil on Tapestry.
  • Have a go at drawing the different textures on the sheet. Use your knowledge of line and shading from yesterday.
  • Go find some interesting textures and have a go at recreating them using just pencil.
