Hello Year 2! Here is a breakdown of what we will be doing in school this week for those of you who may be working from home (or for those of you who like to do a little extra!).
This week we are looking at alternative graphemes for the ‘igh’ sound. Below are some videos to help you. Don’t forget, you can always use the BBC bitesize website for a recap of phase 2 or 3 if these are too tricky.
Here are this weeks spellings using the ‘igh’ alternatives and some common exception words.
pie, lie, tie, bike, time, prize, come, some, do, when
This week we are practising adding 10 to 2 digit numbers. Step by step-
Write the number sentence
Underline the tens digits
Add the tens and copy the ones
Here are some examples of questions you could try.
This week we are starting to write our own version of Rapunzel. In school we have changed the witch into an ogre and it will be a princess saving the prince this time! Here is an example of a story map we did in school to help you at home. Have a go at writing your own versions (remembering to use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops).
In science, have a look at this video on what is inside our bodies.
Draw and label a diagram of the human body with these organs:
heart, lungs, stomach, intestines, liver and brain

A special goodbye for Zuzanna and Dheeraj, who are moving to away with their families before September. I know all your Priory friends will join me in wishing you both all the luck in the world. Keep trying hard and you will shine brightly in your new schools! We are all very sad to see you both go!
Thank you for being such superstars this year! It’s been a strange year but I am so proud of all of you! Stay safe and have a wonderful summer holiday. Don’t forget to complete the ‘Destination September’ activities if you get chance!
