You might need help from an adult to complete some of these tasks. Others you will be able to do by yourself. 



Please practice your Year 1 and 2 common exception words at home. You should have these from a previous post on our Class Dojo page. You can test yourself each day and see how many you can get right out of 10! Try to beat your high score on how many you can write correctly. As an extension, see if you can write them in a sentence. This will help you with your longer pieces of writing.  



Please read your reading books at home everyday. You can access stories on Oxford Owl as well as following the Read Write Inc. YouTube videos that have been posted on the Class Dojo. Write a book review or a few sentences if you finish a book. Tell us about your favourite part, your favourite character etc. We would love to see a photo/video of you doing some reading. Maybe you would like to perform some stories like Julia Donaldson:




Possible ideas: 

  • Write a diary of what you do at home. 
  • Write a poem about African animals. 
  • Write a short story about a day as a lion. What do you see? What do you eat? How do you feel? 
  • Research endangered African animals.
  • Create a poster about the 7 continents. What makes each continent special/different? 
  • Learn these song! Can you think of actions for each continent/ocean?
  • Write a set of instructions for how to make Chapati Za Ngozi (which is a Kenyan soft-layered bread!) You will have to research this. 
  • Make a treasure map with a set of instructions for someone in your family to find a watering hole in the savannah. You could have this treasure hunt around your home.


Please practice your multiplication tables everyday. These should be the 2, 5 and 10 timestables. Use Timetable Rockstars to help you do this- try to get a new high score! 


Create your own maths challenges to complete, for example: 

  • Create your own adding, subtraction, multiplying and dividing questions and answer them. 
  • Go on a shape hunt around your home. Can you try to draw these? 
  • Measure objects around your home. What is the tallest and smallest thing in your house?
