Wednesday 17th June

Happy Wednesday, Year 2!



Philosophical question: If your nose runs and your feet smell, what do your eyes do?


Here is today's suggested timetable:

Suggested times 


9 – 9:30

 Joe Wicks PE session 

9:30 – 10:30


  • Recap your number bonds to 10 and 20. Can someone test you on them? How quickly can you answer?

Example: 6 and what makes 20? (14) Or challenge yourself with an inverse question, 20 take away what equals 17? (3)

  • Write the number bond number sentence to match the picture.
  • Solve the word problem by using your number bond knowledge.
  • Fill in the circles with numbers so that each side adds up to 20.

Example: 5 + 5 + 10 = 20 and 10 + 3 + 7 =20 and 7 + 8 + 5 = 20

10:30 – 10:45


Get outside in the garden for a kick around, run around or a bit of fresh air. 

10:45 – 11:10

 SPaG - Unit 9 (p31) words ending in -el 

  • Complete the dots and dashes of all the -el words. How many sounds do they have?  
  • Word changes – can you remove the suffix to find the root words? 

11:10 – 12:00


  •  Watch today’s writing video to see the next few pages of the book. 
  • Jim-Lad and the Jolley Rogers are leaving Dull-on-Sea then, but he came and gave Matilda a note before they left.  
  • What do you think the note said? You are going to be writing your ideas on the scroll or your own tea-stained piece of paper. 

12:00 – 1:00


Go outside for a bit of fresh air and play a game! 

1:00 – 1:30


  • Read or listen again to Chapter 17 ‘An Invitation from Moon-Face and Silky’.
  • Write your own invitation to a friend, inviting them to something.

 1:30 – 3:00


  • We are thinking more closely about the materials for our ship today. As we make it over the next few weeks, we will need a range of materials. 
  • In the table I have put the different parts of the ship that we will need to make and next to it you need to write the material you would use. 
  • Underneath there is a bigger box to write why you would use that material. 


 End of the day 

Enjoy spending some down time with your family.
