Home Learning 2
Hello, 2W. I hope that you and your families are all ok and that you are managing to find some time to carry out the learning activities that have been posted on the Y2 webpage and on here.
Literacy Learning – Fairytale Project
How are you getting on with your story S for the fairytale that you have chosen? You might want to think about using some story language to help tell the story, such as:
- Once upon a time
- One day
- then, next, after that
- soon, later
- suddenly, all of a sudden
Once you've completed your story S for the fairytale that you have chosen you need to start practising the story using actions and story language. I’m really looking forward to seeing you perform this for us back at school, so keep practising this over the next week. Remember, your learning question is:
- Can I tell a traditional tale orally?
As well as practising telling the story, try some of the activities below. You can choose which ones you like, but you only need to do one each day. Some of them might take longer than a day. It is better that they are done slowly and really well.
- Make a puppet to retell the story. (There are some ideas on Link & Learn for how this may be done.)
- Write a diary entry from one of the characters’ points of view.
- Produce a piece of artwork to show the story setting. This could be a collage, a painting, a drawing or other!
- Write a list of questions that you would like to ask one of the characters. Remember to use a question mark at the end of each question.
I’d like to see these when we come back to school, but it would be fantastic if I could see these before. Perhaps you could email me your diary entry or questions, a photograph of your artwork or a photograph of you and your puppet – maybe even in action performing the story!

Have you tried out the activities set by the specialist teachers yet?
Mr Mac has set you some great, fun typing activities so that you can get quicker at finding the letters on the keyboard. Click on one of the links below to take you to the website.
He has also suggested some websites that you might like to use for fun learning games and finding out about things you are interested in:
Mr Sharp has given you some songs to practise:
Rain rain, go away come again other day
Rain rain, go away come again other day!
He says to practise singing this song with the umbrella sheet (which you can colour in if you wish!). Firstly, sing the song keeping the beat by pointing at each umbrella and then sing it and catch the words. (Counting the rain drops near the umbrellas will help!)
Other songs to practise!
See-saw up and down in the air and on the ground
Bounce high, bounce low bounce the ball the Shylow
Lucy Locket lost her pocket,
Katy Fisher found it,
Not a penny was there in it, only ribbons ‘round it.
When you sing these songs see if you can show the notes (high/low) in the air with your hand!
Colour in the pictures of the instruments.
Miss Fiona has given you some wonderful PE ideas. Click here to find out what they are.
Remember, if you have any questions please ask mum or dad to email me, or post a comment on here. If you can, it would be wonderful to see some of the outcomes of your learning tasks, so you could email these too.
Most importantly, you need to stay safe at this time and you should not worry if you can not complete the activities. I look forward to seeing you all again soon. Take care.
