 Write the complete scale in your homework book.












William Shakespeare – The Tempest


A violent storm was raging over the island. Palm trees bent and swayed like dancers in the howling gale that tore off their branches and sent them tumbling through the air.

Not five paces from the bank of violets where Titania lay asleep, a group of Athenians had gathered in secret to rehearse a play that they meant to perform for Duke Theseus after his wedding. One of the actors, a weaver called Bottom, was behind a tree waiting to appear when he heard his cue.

“I’ll show them how it’s done!” Bottom said to himself. “When the Duke sees what a fine actor I am, he’ll give me a purse of gold, or my name’s not Nick Bottom!”

Miss White says that 23 + 36 = 59

Use the inverse to prove her correct or incorrect.

William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire and was baptised a few days later on 26 April 1564. His father, John Shakespeare, was a glove maker and wool merchant and his mother, Mary Arden, was the daughter of a well-to-do landowner from Wilmcote, South Warwickshire. It is likely Shakespeare was educated at the local King Edward VI Grammar School in Stratford.

Happy Easter!

Thank you for all your support this term. We hope that you have a lovely Easter Holiday and we look forward to seeing you in the Summer Term. 

We have uploaded the homework map and it is stuck in your child's homework map. 


If you would like to do any additional work with your child, we have some suggestions that will support them over the coming term. 


All the arithmetic practice you can do! addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, multiplication facts, division facts. 

If you are working on subtraction, which is a particular challenge in our year group at the moment, it is not necessary for children to do subtractions that involve taking more ones away than there are in the first number e.g. 33 - 17. 

35 - 22 = 13

30 - 20 = 10

5 - 2 = 3

10 + 3 = 13



Handwriting - your child needs to write on the line consistently and capital letters and lower case letters need to be easily distinguished from one another.

Reading - please read as much as possible with your child. Ask and answer questions with them.

Year 2 Homework – due in Monday 19th March 2018

Next week, the children will have a chance to share their project homework if they haven't already.

We are also making vehicles next week as egg transporters. We have asked the children to think about what they could make this out of and to bring it in next week. This can be as simple as an empty cereal box or large plastic bottle. We'll make it work!



This week, we have been working hard on using partitioning to help us add and subtract two digit numbers.

For example, 25 + 32 would be partitioned into tens + tens and ones + ones before adding the two answers:

20 + 30 = 50

5 + 2 = 7

50 + 7 = 57

Use this method to answer the questions below:

What Do Chickens Look Like?

Chickens are small, two-legged birds. They are flightless, which means that although they have wings, they are not able to fly very far or high. They have a strong beak and claws which they use to scratch and search for food in the ground. They have a thick covering of feathers which allows them to stay warm. Male chickens (cockerels) have a red ‘comb’ on their head and an extra sharp claw on the back of their legs.


What does ‘flightless’ mean?


What do male chickens (cockerels) have on their heads?

Why do bees sting?

A honeybee will not often sting, except when it is stepped on or handled roughly.

If a bee is buzzing around you, it may smell perfume or soap and think the smell is

nectar or food. The bee will check you out to see if it can find the nectar, but if you

stand very still, it will realise there is no nectar and go away.


Why should you be careful when handling bees?


What should you do if a honeybee buzzes around you?

European Day of Languages T-Shirt Competition (OPTIONAL)

On Tuesday, we celebrated the European Day of Languages. As part of this, the children were informed of a T-Shirt competition that they may wish to take part in. Please follow the link below if you would like to find out more.

There is also a template attached if you would like to have a go. It is also okay just to do it on A4 paper.


1. Please keep in mind that the design should be about languages, not countries. So please don't use flags or similar.

2. You can use up to 3 colours.

3. Keep in mind that we need a simple design that is not too complex or that has small details. This will increase printing quality.

4. Keep in mind that the maximum printing surface is 30 cm x 30 cm


Year 2 Homework – due in Monday 25th September 2017



In our grammar lessons this week, we have been learning about verbs. The children have identified imperative verbs in sentences and in recipes.

For your homework, you need to use imperative verbs to write a set of instructions for your teacher. You might want to tell your teacher how to make the perfect cup of tea or even how to bake your favourite biscuit or meal.


Remember to start each sentence with an imperative verb e.g.

  1. Fill the kettle with cold water.
  2. Plug the kettle into a socket.
  3. Turn the kettle on.

Make sure you set your instructions out clearly with one on each line.
