Year 2 Remote Learning 

Hi Year 2 and welcome to remote learning. Mrs Caunt and Mrs Haselden will be your 'Remote Teachers' this week :) 

Every morning we are going to set you up with some daily challenges for you to complete at home. Make sure to record your work in your remote learning books. We are also going to check in with you every afternoon to see how you are getting on with the work and to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to leave a comment in the guestbook about how you are getting on as we would love to hear from you all.

Tuesday 14th July

Good morning Hawks and Woodpeckers!

It's terrific Tuesday!

We had some fantastic Quangle Wangle and Crumpetty Tree pictures through yesterday so thank you for emailing them in. We have more Quangle Wangle fun today and I can't wait to see what you come up with this time.

Did any of you manage to design your own hat yesterday afternoon? I will have another design activity for you after lunch, so don't forget to check back for more fun.

Enjoy your morning Year 2!

Mrs Haselden


Maths activity

Warm up 

Keep up the great work with TT Rockstars.




Today's game is Strike it Out. It is a great game for mental addition. 

Watch the video below which shows two people playing the first few turns of a game.

What do you notice?
What do you want to ask?

Watch the video a second time.

Can you work out how to play the game?  
What do you think the rules might be? 
How might someone win the game?

The aim of the game:
The player who stops their opponent from being able to go wins the game.

How to play:

  • Start by drawing a number line from 0 to 20 like this:

0-20 number line

(You can find some of these number lines below) 

  • The first player chooses a number on the line and crosses it out. The same player then chooses a second number and crosses that out too. Finally, he or she circles the sum or difference of the two numbers and writes down the calculation.

For example, the first player's go could look like this:
first player's go: 3+8=11

  • The second player must start by crossing off the number that player 1 has just circled. He or she then chooses another number to cross out and then circles a third number which is the sum or difference of the two crossed-off numbers. Player 2 also writes down their calculation.

For example, once the second player has had a turn, the game could look like this:

player 2: 11+9=20

  • Play continues in this way with each player starting with the number that has just been circled.
  • Once a number has been used in a calculation, it cannot be used again.
  • The game ends when one player cannot make a calculation. The other player is the winner.

It's your turn!
Try playing the game against someone else a few times to get a feel for it.
Do you have any good ways of winning?

Now it's time to work together with a partner, rather than against them.
Try to create a string of calculations that uses as many numbers as possible on the 0-20 number line.
Is it possible to create a string of number sentences that uses all the numbers on the 0-20 number line? Why or why not?

What about the 1-20 number line? Is it possible to create a string of number sentences that uses all the numbers on the 1-20 number line? Why or why not?

English activity

Remember these of you in school will cover this in lesson. However, feel free to practise reading the verses 

★ Reading Challenge 1
You can watch a video of the poem being read by Griff Rhys Jones here:

Now that you’ve had a think, it’s time to read the first verse of the poem.

The Quangle Wangle’s Hat
On the top of the Crumpetty Tree
The Quangle Wangle sat,
But his face you could not see,
On account of his Beaver Hat.
For his Hat was a hundred and two feet wide,
With ribbons and bibbons on every side
And bells, and buttons, and loops, and lace,
So that nobody ever could see the face
Of the Quangle Wangle Quee.

★ Imagine
Draw the Quangle Wangle’s hat.

★ Reading Challenge 2
Now read some more verses:
The Quangle Wangle said
To himself on the Crumpetty Tree:
“Jam; and jelly; and bread;
Are the best of food for me!
But the longer I live on this Crumpetty Tree
The plainer than ever it seems to me
That very few people come this way
And that life on the whole is far from gay!”
Said the Quangle Wangle Quee.

But there came to the Crumpetty Tree,
Mr. and Mrs. Canary;
And they said, — “Did ever you see
Any spot so charmingly airy?
May we build a nest on your lovely Hat?
Mr. Quangle Wangle, grant us that!
O please let us come and build a nest
Of whatever material suits you best,
Mr. Quangle Wangle Quee!”

And besides, to the Crumpetty Tree
Came the Stork, the Duck, and the Owl;
The Snail, and the Bumble-Bee,
The Frog, and the Fimble Fowl;
(The Fimble Fowl, with a corkscrew leg;)
And all of them said: “We humbly beg,
We may build our homes on your lovely Hat:
Mr. Quangle Wangle, grant us that!
Mr. Quangle Wangle Quee!”
