Self-Isolation work

Week beginning 21st September

Please see below for an outline of the planning, skills and activities that will be taught in Year 2 this week.


Number Bonds

- Children will be revising their number bonds to 10 and 20. You can use 'hit the button' online to help with this.

- They will then be using their knowledge of these number bonds to help them calculate related facts


if 8 + 2 = 10 then 80 + 20 = 100

- They will be using their knowledge of number bonds to quickly add 3 single digit numbers mentally.

eg. if they were to have the calculation 8 + 3 + 2 = ?

They would first look for the number bond 8 + 2 = 10 before adding the 3 to make 13.



- Children will practise adding the suffix -ly to an adjective to create an adverb.

- They will be using the bank of adverbs they have created to modify the verb in a sentence.


If they were given the sentence (verb in bold): The fierce lion hunted its prey.

They would add an appropriate adverb before the verb in the sentence to create:

The fierce lion sneakily hunted its prey.
