Thank you Maddie for sending in your story. I am blown away with your handwriting and the creativity. You have a fantastic beginning and added lots of information about your character Maddie. The magic tree sounds fun and your story tells us to be kind and helpful. You have used verbs, adjectives and have a clear sequence in your story. I love your illustration too. Great job Maddie!
Thank you Amelia for sending the ending of your story. Your ending well planned and clever. All this time the solution was in Coco’s hands but she was too upset to realise. But at last she was free. Your story language and use of different sentences make your story really exciting to read. Well done for great story telling! Also, fantastic Maths learning about fractions. You can confidently find fractions of numbers and using a strategy to help you solve them.
Hello Y2! It is the last day of school for this half term. I want to say thank you to parents and yourselves for being so positive and determined to do the home learning during this crisis.

I want you to finish your story in the next two days. I am not adding any new challenges for writing. Focus on your story. Think about your story sequencing carefully; beginning - middle - problem - solution - ending. Read it back or get someone else to read and give you feedback. A good writer tries to improve their writing by proof reading and editing their sentences.
We have finished fractions unit. If you haven't managed to finish your Maths work, then please try to catch up. If you have caught up then use this link below to create your own fraction wall. Can you find all the fractions that are the same? E.g. 1/2 is same as 2/4. What other equivalent (same) fractions can you find?
Super spicy challenge:
Look at the shaded boxes out of the whole. Can you write the fractions that are exactly the same?
I know that 1/2 (shaded green) is same as 2/4 (shaded orange). Count how many equal parts are there altogether to write your fractions. If there are 10 parts and 5 is shaded (purple) I would write it as 5/10 or five tenths.
Did you manage to grow your cress seeds? We were investigating to find out - what do seeds need to grow into a healthy plant. Do you remember our conditions for the seeds?

Mental Health Awareness Week
It is mental health week this week. Mental health is important for every stage of life, from childhood, adolescence and through to adulthood. It is important we look after our mind as well as our body.
The theme this year is KINDNESS. What does this mean to you? When someone is having problems we can be kind to them to help them deal with difficulties. Think of a time when you felt really upset and you didn’t know what to do.
How do you think people around you have or could have shown kindness?
Today is Wellbeing Wednesday! Please look at the activity below.
It's book swap day today! Please pop to collect your books, and for those children who have finished reading the books from last week, can come in and exchange them for news ones.
Please re read yesterday's story and answer the following questions:
How is you story coming along? Have you included dialogue in your writing, using inverted commas for direct speech? Today, we are going to have a go at writing the ending of our story.
The tree's smile beamed like sunshine. The tree was happy to see it's nourished leaves swaying in the gentle breeze of the wind again. The proud tree asked Melanie to pick another fruit. Melanie tip toed and reached out as high as she could to pick the ripest, juiciest looking fruit that glistened like a ruby.
She took her first bite, the crunch of the ripe, juicy fruit echoed. Then, Melanie quickly ran down to the pond to see her reflection. She could see it at last. She was overjoyed with happiness.
"I am not invisible anymore," she shouted wildly. She thanked the tree, and ran back home to see her parents. She climbed the stairs to reach the 3rd floor. KNOCK! KNOCK! BANG! BANG! Her mum opened the door and asked angrily,
"Where have you been?"
Melanie smiled, and gave her mum a great big hug and said "Don't worry mum, I'm home now."
Since that day Melanie always found the time to go and see the giant tree in the park and took good care of it.
Have I got a clear sequence in my ending and my whole story? Can you go and ticked pink and green for growth my work? Have I written my story in past tense? Did I use adjectives, verbs adverbs?
Today, we are going to solve these word problems involving fractions. Use the same strategy we have been using by drawing a bar / boxes to share your number equally.
Today for handwriting, we are going to practice joining the cursive alphabet 'ng'. Watch the video below, and have a go at joining 'ng'. Remember to make sure your pencils are sharp and you are sitting properly.
Now I would like you to have a go at writing some words ending with the sound 'ng'.
Have a go at this fun spelling activity. Click on the link below:
Activity 1: Create homemade instruments with household items.
Today for music, I want you to create your own musical instrument using items found in your house.
Try creating shakers by using pasta and rice in empty bottles.
You could also try using bottles either with filled with varying degrees of water or empty and scraping them with spoons or twigs to make sounds, or just upturned pans and colanders.
Now have a go exploring different sounds and rhymes you can make with your musical instruments.
Activity 2: Make some music!
This is a fun activity for the whole family. One of my favorite song was from our Year 2 Assembly, when we sang 'You raised me up'. You can listen to it again, by clicking on the video below:
Have a go at singing this song with your family. You can even use homemade musical instruments to make background sounds.
A very good morning to my spectacular, splendid and stupendous Y2 class. Hope you had a good day of home learning yesterday and managed to complete the challenges. Let me know on Purplemash blogs if you are coming to book swap on Wednesday. Thank you to Amelia and Aaliyah for sending me their lovely pieces of home learning.
Aaliyah - what a fantastic innovation of your main character. I love your illustration of Pearl and the way you have explored her character in depth. Pearl likes playing finball! That was quite clever Aaliyah and great use of adjectives to describe Pearl. Your special tree can fulfill any wish? My wish is that, I want to be in class with Y2 and in topic lesson we are making fruit salad and enjoying altogether. You have a good start to your story and you set the scene and introduced your character by giving lots of information. You used different sentence starters, have a clear sequence and used past tense. Read back some of the sentences to see if you can add more detail. E.g. the school, where is it? What is she learning in the school? Is it an underwater school where she is perfecting her diving skills etc? You have used adverbs and time connectives really well and made the story very original. Also, great work in your Maths challenges. Keep it up Aailayh. I can't wait to read the rest of your story.
Amelia - the more I read your writing the more exciting it gets . What fantastic ideas you have thought of. I can see that you have worked with an adult to plan this carefully and managed to create a good story. You have used familiar story language and your use of adjectives (glorious melody, shiny golden path, verbs (wandering, floating, whistling) creates a picture in my head of what your character is going through. You also used inverted commas for speech. Some of your sentences are long though they are very creative. You can shorten some of those. I am so impressed at how hard you have worked in this story. Great job Amelia! I can't wait to find out how Coco will go back home.
Read this lovely story and find out what happens when James, Sally and Mark decide to play Hide and Seek. Look at the front cover. What do you think might happen? Make some predictions before reading. Once you have finished reading, can you retell the story in your own words to a sibling or an adult?
So today in our writing we will try to solve the problem that our character is in. Have you got to that bit yet?
My problem was that Melanie turned invisible and no one could see her. She couldn't even get in her house. Now I need to find a way to solve this problem.
Do you have any ideas on how I can make Melanie visible again? Remember she ate the fruit from the tree which made her invisible.
Here is my solution.
Melanie was upset. She didn't know what to do. Without delay, she darted back to the park where the giant tree stood tall. She pleaded,
'Please help me, I want to be seen again.'
There was no reply from the tree.
'My Mum must be getting worried, help me!' begged Melanie.
Suddenly, a loud voice beamed from the tree top.
'You ate my fruit without my permission, you must fulfill my wish.'
'What is your wish?', she asked.
'I want you to water my root till my leaves become as green as emerald and my skin become as smooth as marbles.'
Quickly, she ran down to the pond and fetched water for the tree. She fetched and she poured until her hands were tired. The great tree exclaimed,
'My leaves are shining like emerald and my skin sparkles like marbles, you have fulfilled my wish.' said the tree happily.
I want you to use dialogue in your problem today where characters are talking to each other. Remember to use inverted commas for direct speech.
"Please help me!" cried Melanie.
Complete the challenges using the strategy I showed you yesterday. Some challenges are asking you to find more than 1 part. So read the fractions carefully before answering. Remember to draw your bar / boxes to share your number equally.
Watch this video on BBC Bitesize. Why do you think Muslims fast in Ramadan? What is so special about this Islamic month? Create an information poster about Ramadan.
Rise and shine Year 2! Hope you all had a restful weekend. I will be making some calls this week to see how you are getting on with your home learning. It would be nice to hear from you and I can answer any questions you may have. I still have books for some children to collect this Wednesday. Please send in your work via email to Joan.
I have received lots of fantastic home learning from Mohammed. Well done Mohammed for uploading all your work on PurpleMash by yourself. Apologies for not putting them up on our blog earlier. I am so impressed at your presentation and how motivated you are to do the learning at home. Your fractions work look great and you are very confident in finding halves, thirds and quarters of shapes, objects and numbers. I love your ideas about the tree, you have put a lot of thought into it. Also, great map of our school and where to find trees and plants. It's very clear and detailed. Keep up the good work Mohammed!
Have a look at what Barbara is talking about in our assembly this week.
Read this funny book called 'The Day the Crayons Quit.'

2. Why wasn't the purple crayon happy?
3. What are the small things grey crayon suggested that Duncan can draw and why?
4. What is the reason for yellow and orange crayon arguing?
5. Why was the blue crayon short and tired?
6. Is there anything wrong in using pink crayon?
How is your story coming along? Today I want you to go over what you have done so far. Read it back. Have you got a beginning that introduces your character? Have you described the setting? Have you given extra information about your character? Is there a sequence in your story? Are things happening in order? Have you used noun phrases to describe and used conjunctions to add more detail in a sentence? Use a different colour pen to edit and improve your writing. use the checklist to help you.
capital letters and full stop.
story opener (Long ago, In a crowded city, Faraway in a town)
different sentence starters.
sequence (is it in order?)
noun phrases (adjectives)
verbs (doing words)

Please send in your story to me so I can have a look at it and give you tickled pink and green for growth.
If you were to get some money from someone and they asked you this:
Would you rather have 1/4 of £20 or 1/3 of £21?
What would you say to them and why?
Today we are going to use loops to complete a task when giving instructions. Instead of writing the same code again and again we could just use a loop block to command how many times we want our game character do certain actions. Use the pink repeat block to give command you can choose how many times you want the bee to carry out an action by selecting a number where the ? is. E.g. repeat 2 times - move forward.

Mental Health Awareness Week
It is mental health week this week. We need to look after our minds as well as our body. Mental health affects how you feel and behave.
The theme this year is KINDNESS. What does this mean to you? When someone is having problems we can be kind to them to help them deal with difficulties. Think of a time When you felt really upset and you didn’t know what to do.
How do you think people around you could have shown kindness?
Hola Y2! How are you all doing? It's the end of the week. Well done to all of you who shared their home learning with us this week. It is such a wonderful treat for us teachers. I received some great home learning from Amelia. What a lovely drawing of your fictional character Coco. I love the way you have explored Coco and her personality. Your description of the tree is great. You used varied sentences and noun phrases. You used conjunctions to add more detail. Your story has a good beginning and I like the way you related Coco's experience with what most of us are going through. You have thought about your ideas carefully and sequenced events well. I would buy your book if you publish it Amelia! Some great fractions learning too with neat presentation. Well done!
Have a read of the story below and answer some of the questions. What do you notice about the characters' name? Do you remember what its called when the words start with the same sound?
Have you made a start on your story? I would encourage you to read Amelia's story to see how she has made it her own. So far we have innovated our own character, special tree and a problem / a strange thing that happens to our character. My character Melanie turned invisible after eating the fruit from the tree. What will happen to your character? Today, I want you to finish off the middle of the story with the problem and start thinking about a solution. How are you going to solve the problem that your character is in? Here is the rest of my middle with the problem. Next week I will be focusing on a solution to get Melanie back to her true form.
Melanie started walking home from the park satisfied with the fruit she had devoured. But she didn't realise that she had turned invisible just yet. There was a man riding his bike who almost crashed into her. Melanie jumped out of the way as fast as she could. She thought the man was careless. But was he really? Soon, she reached her street. When she was walking on the pavement beside a shop, she took a glance at the shop window. Imagine her surprise when she couldn't see her own reflection. She was frightened and scared! So she took off as fast as a rocket till she reached her door. Knock! Knock! Bang! Bang! Her mum opened the door and looked around suspiciously. In the meantime, Melanie waved her arms and cried,
"Mum! Mum! Can you see me?"
Of course mum couldn't see Melanie standing there. Besides you can't see something that is invisible.
"That's strange" mumbled Mum as she closed the door leaving Melanie outside.
Complete these maths challenges below. Read the questions carefully.
We are going to make a simple map of our school playground and show location of plants and trees. Draw a little picture to show where you would find plants, trees in Virginia primary school. Use the google satellite picture below to help you.
Good morning Year 2! It's Shay here. I hope you had a good day of home learning yesterday. Well done to those children who came to collect their books. Pauline and Shyma were happy to see you. I have set some challenges on studyladder so please have a look. Pauline picked up some home learning from Zayna. Well done for completing those challenges. I like the way you used dienes to recognise tens and ones in a 2-digit number. Good job with your handwriting and answering questions from 'Tree of life'. Can you retell what happened in the story?
I want you listen to this story carefully. What do you think we can learn from the story? Remember the way you look (outer appearance) is not the most important thing, what matters is that how you are on the inside.
Yesterday Shyma asked you to have a think about the tree in your story. How did you get on? What was special about the tree? I thought of my tree idea and decided that it will have the power to make you invisible when you eat a fruit from it. What was your idea? Today your are going to write the middle of the story where your character discovers the tree.
I am going to share my beginning and middle with you:
In the middle of a bustling city, their stood a tall building. On the 3rd floor, there lived a young girl called Melanie with her family and her pet fish Goldie . Melanie was brave but kind. And she was bright but mischievous. She would not sit still for a moment. One sunny day, Melanie was bored sitting at home. Everyone was too busy for her. Her brother was playing with his lego and her parents were too busy gardening. Goldie was pretending to be asleep. So Melanie decided to take a walk to the park on her own.
She walked along the narrow path and watched the children play happily. Soon, she noticed a giant tree that towered over the park wall. It was old, wrinkly and crooked. So she dashed towards the tree to have a closer look. The tree had a strange looking fruit that she had never seen before. Her mouth watered! Melanie reached as far as she could with her fingers and picked a fruit. CRUNCH! CRUNCH! SLURP! SLURP! It was the most sweetest and juiciest fruit indeed. But before she could take another bite... she had vanished!
So that was my middle of the story and the problem (Melanie vanished). How will your character discover your special tree? What will happen to your character? Write a paragraph.
Use senses to describe what your character sees, feels, smells or hears. You need to describe the tree using adjectives. Add details using conjunctions; because, and, but, or, so, when, as soon as etc. Good luck!
Log on to studyladder and do the fractions challenges.
Physical Activity: Let’s Kid Fit Go!
Physical Challenge: Balancing a book relay.
Mark two bases. Starting base and the end base.
Aim is to balance the book from start to end without dropping the book. If the book drops, you complete 5 star jumps/ jumping jacks then continue from where you stopped.
Challenge a family member either side by side or by timing each other.
Bonjour Year 2! It's Shyma here. I hope you and your family are doing well, and keeping busy with the home learning. I am super impressed with all the fantastic work you have been sharing. It really puts a smile on my face, and makes me do the happy dance!
It was lovely seeing all the children and parents who came to our Book Swap last week. Please pop by today to collect your books, if you haven't done so already; and for those children who have finished reading the books from last week, you can come in to exchange them.
Thank you to Amelia for sharing these lovely photographs of your home learning. Well done for completing the fractions activities. I particularly love the way you have presented your work, and your colorful seed packet looks amazing. Now you can think about what seeds you would like to put in it.
Thank you to Jazmine for sharing these lovely photographs of your home learning, for literacy and numeracy. Well done for completing the fractions activity, and I love the way you have tried to draw most of the pictures to represent the fractions.
You have also made a lovely start on your story, and I am eager to find out what happens next!
Today, we are are going to continue to read the next couple of pages from the non fiction book about gardening. Some texts are quite small, so ask an adult to help you, if you can't read them. Try and find out the meaning of these topic words below, using the online dictionary - https://kids.wordsmyth.net/we/.
I hope you all have managed to write the beginning of your story.
Today you are going to have a go at creating your own special tree.
First, think about what is special about your tree. For example, can the tree talk; sing; dance; grow gold or even take you up to a magical land? What does the tree do when someone is passing by? How does the tree look? How tall is it? How old does the tree look? How do the leaves and branches look? Does it have any fruit or flowers?
Have ago at drawing your own special tree and write what is special around it. Look at the above example.
So far we have recapped on finding halves, thirds and quarters.
Remember the bottom number of the fraction is called denominator, which represents how many equal parts there are in total.
The top number of the fraction is called numerator, which represents how many parts shown by the denominator is taken.
Now we are going to have a go at some fractions where the numerator is greater than 1.
The above fraction represents ¾, meaning 3 slices out the total four slices is left.
What fraction does the colored area show? Write down the correct answer.
I want you to draw a fraction which represent the fractions listed below. You can draw any shape you like, as long as all the parts are equal and correctly shaded in.
Today for handwriting we are going to focus on words that begin with 'wh'. Look at the video below, which shows how you join the first two letters.
Now I would like you to have a go at writing the words below, beginning with 'wh'. Make sure your pencil is sharp and you are sitting properly,
Have a go at this fun spelling activity.
Ciao Y2! I hope you are all up and ready for today's learning. If you missed the book swap last week, try to come in this Wednesday to collect your books. Children that have got books already you may want to finish them all and bring them back next week Wednesday to exchange. Thank you Maddie and Aaliyah for sending their lovely pieces of home learning. It brightens up my day when I receive work from children. Maddie I love your poem, some great ideas. I like your illustration and the mind map of the new character Maddie. Well done!
Aaliyah, so many fantastic pieces of home learning. Well done on completing the fractions challenges. I like the way you explained your thoughts and justified your answers. You answered the reading questions carefully, finding evidence from the book. I like the similes you have used to compare two things. Good book review on Maya Angelou. Her story is really inspiring. Great job!
We are going to start reading this non-fiction book about gardening. Some texts are very small, ask your adults to help you if you can't read them. There are lots of topic words in the book. Try to find out their meaning using the online dictionary - https://kids.wordsmyth.net/we/
Did you come up with your new character? Today, I want you write the beginning of your story. Think about different story starters:
In a place far away,
Once upon a time,
In a crowded city,
Along a narrow river, there was a lovely town...
Remember to use story language from the tree of life. We don't want to talk about the tree just yet.
You need to introduce your character and use your mind map from yesterday to write the beginning paragraph.
Where is the setting?
Where does the character live?
His/ her hobbies?
Where is your character going? (Remember Agouti was walking in the forest)
This is the beginning of my story: Are there any ticked pink or green for growth?
in the middle of a bustling city, their stood a tall building. On the 3rd floor, there lived a young girl called melanie with her family and her pet fish Goldie . Melanie was brave but kind. And she was bright but mischievous. She would not sit still for a moment. One sunny day, Melanie was getting bored sitting at home. Everyone was too busy for her. Her brother was playing with his lego and her parents were too busy gardening. Goldie was pretending to be asleep. So Melanie decided to take a walk to the park on her own.
Tomorrow we will think of the tree in our story and how your main character discovers the tree.
So far we have recapped finding half and quarters. Do you think you can confidently find 1/2 and 1/4 of shapes, objects and numbers? Today, I want you to focus on recognising and finding one third 1/3. How many equal parts would you have, if you are splitting something in thirds? In the fraction 1/3, what does the 1 represent? What does the 3 represent?
As you can see there are three equal parts and 1 part is shaded. If I shade another part out of the whole circle, what would that be as a fraction? Have a go at the challenges below:
Design and Technology
Today, I want to have a go at making a seed packet. Seeds are sold in packets to protect them from being damaged.
Think about the questions below:
What shape is the packet?
How is the seed packet joined?
Will the packet keep the seeds dry?
Use the video to help you construct your seed net, then use folds and join sides. You can use any paper or gift wrap that you have in your house and if you don't have glue, you can use sellotape. Have a look at the seed packets below. Remember to write the instructions as you construct your seed packet.
Good morning children and parents. Hope you had a long restful weekend. Well done to those children who came to our book swap. It was nice to see some of you and catch up with you. I received some great home learning from Yamin and Amelia. Amelia, I love your drawing of your giant turtle. How fast is your turtle I wonder! In writing, make sure all your sentences start with a capital letter. Well done on your fractions challenges, you can confidently identity half and quarters. Yamin - I like your story map of the story. Did you manage to sequence the key parts of the story? What caused the flood? Fantastic learning on fractions and lovely presentation. Well done on answering the questions from 'Escape of the Giant Chicken'. Your answers are very detailed!
I really enjoyed this story because it shows the value of relationship and also show in ways human beings are destroying our earth. The trees sacrifice a lot for us human beings. If you were a tree how would you help everyone around you? I want you to have a go at writing a little poem that starts with:
If I were a tree...
Think about what tress do, how they grow, how they bear fruit and how they are useful to humans and animals. Your poem doesn't have to rhyme.
Here are my first two lines.
If I were a tree, I would grow as tall as a mountain and wave at the sun.
If I were a tree, I would have leaves as colourful as the rainbow in the bright blue sky.
If I were a tree..
In the next two weeks, we will plan and write our own version of the tree of life. We will change our main character and we are going to come up with different ideas for a tree. The tree in our story will have a special power. It could be anything that can help your main character and other people.
The tree could:
talk, sing, grow gold, open up to take you to a magical land, have an ocean / a beach inside, have a family living inside etc. Your main character could be a girl or a boy. We will change the setting from a forest to an urban city. e.g. - London.
Today, we are going to introduce our new character. Draw a picture of your chosen character and do a mind map of them. What is their name? Where does your character live? Who do they live with? What is their hobby? What is their personality like? Does your character have a pet? Do they have any siblings? Add as many information you can think of about your character.
We will continue with fractions this week. Do you remember what quarters mean? When we split something into 4 equal parts. If I had a pizza and I cut it into four equal slices and, I ate 2 slices from it, then how many quarters of the pizza did I eat? What would that look like as a fraction? Can you draw and show? Do you notice anything same or different to other fractions we have learnt? What other fraction is it equivalent to?
Remember to check that you have 4 equal groups when working out quarters of a fraction.
