Marpool Primary School

Believe, Achieve, Succeed

Year 2

Welcome to Wingnut and Elder Base!

 This week, we have been:

  • Planning our own versions of The Magic Brush by changing some of the characters.


  • Looking at four-fact families for numbers bonds to 20.


  • Locating North and South America on a map, globe and Google Earth.


  • Learning that adding grey to different colours makes new tones.


  • Practising our 'Around the World' dance routines!

To support us at home, you might: 

  • Read at home at least three times each week. 'Three Reads' will be counted each Friday. Talk about the book (and ask questions) afterwards to check understanding.


  • Play a number bonds game with a partner. Your partner will say a number between one and 20; you say the number that you add to it to make 20 - eg. person 1 "18", person 2 "2".


  • Talk about the continents of North American and South America!  Can you use these words? Northern Hemisphere, Southern Hemisphere, equator, continent, country.


  • Spellings - Have a go at these spellings in readiness for next week. 

sugar , Christmas , find , most 

Hungry For More? Can you say and write the spelling words in sentences?


Home Learning and Spellings will run Wednesday to Wednesday each week.


Don't forget, you can share your Home Learning with us on SeeSaw!
