Daily Learning Tasks

Monday 6th July 2020 


Hello and welcome to a new and exciting topic all about the English Civil War. Over the next two weeks, we shall be learning about our monarchy and parliament and how, for a relatively short period of time, England operated as a republic. 


Mr Marriott and Mrs Anderson have been teaching in school and are working in Y1 and with key worker children. Mrs Clarke has been working in Foundation Stage each afternoon but is still approving your blog posts and marking your Purple Mash work, but you may have to wait a little longer for a response.


As last week, the weekly timetable can be viewed so you can see what should be covered each day of the week. All PDFs and worksheets will be placed into your work folder at the start of the week. 



Please read daily, practise spellings twice a week, practise times tables twice a week either on Times Tables Rock Stars or Hit the Button (Times Tables). Please try to spend 10-20 minutes doing these activities.


Here are this week's activities:


English: We start the week learning about our monarch, Queen Elizabeth, by opening the PowerPoint: Introduction to the Queen. When you have read the PowerPoint, open the PDF: Queen True or False? and answer the questions to see what you remember. On Tuesday there is a PowerPoint called Parliament and at the end, there are some scenarios to talk about with your grown-up. On Wednesday, read the PowerPoint all about King Charles 1 and how his actions led to civil war. At the end there are some questions for you to think about and discuss with your grown-up. On Thursday, open the PowerPoint: Civil War to learn about the soldiers, their clothes and weapons. After that, open the PDF: Soldiers and their Armour to complete the descriptions of each type of soldier. You may print out the sheets or copy them onto paper. 


Maths: We are continuing to use White Rose Maths so you will find the PDF for the week in your work folder. This week we will be looking at the properties of 2D and 3D shapes.


DT: You can choose to make a Roundhead Helmet or a Cavalier Hat by opening and printing the PDFs Roundhead Helmet/Cavalier Hat. Follow the instructions carefully. 


Art: Design a Standard! Your challenge is to design a flag fit for an army. Look at the PDF: Design a Standard for some ideas. You could use 2Paint or paper or card. Remember to post on  the Blog if you can!


Geography: We are learning about co-ordinates. Co-ordinates help us to find places on a map. Find the letter along the bottom of the map then go straight up to the number on the map to find the location of the co-ordinate. Look at the PDF: Co-ordinates on a treasure Island. Can you complete the challenge?


Coding: Tick Tock Challenge. Are you chronologically challenged? Can you make the clock behave as it should do? Use your coding skills and logical thinking to make it happen. 


Music: For the next five weeks we shall be hearing the story of Treasure Island and learning some very entertaining pirate songs. This week you will be watching episodes 4 and 5 of the story and learning to sing the song Ben Gunn.


RE: After his crucifixion, Jesus appeared to the disciples and they continued to spread the word of God. Open the PowerPoint: Jesus' Disciples Reunite to find out what happened to them.


PSHE: Open the PDF No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Think about when you did something kind for someone else.

We hope by giving you some structured activities, that this is helping at this very challenging time. We are all on a steep learning curve!


Please remember...


  • The activities are for guidance and some structure
  • Some children will need more so there are lots of activities to explore on this web page
  • Home is not School. Please don't worry about 'keeping up'. Your child will be learning lots of important things by spending so much time with you.
  • Time spent reading, being read to, playing games and talking cannot be underestimated.


We have consolidated some other activities for home learning below

Y2@ Home-Resources . If you have any suggestions of how we can help further, the best way to let us know is through the comments box on your child's Purple Mash 2Do.



  • Read every day
  • Practise your spellings. You should be practising 10 a week. Decide with your grown-up when they will test you.
  • Parents: all children are Garage TEACHER SET  on Times Tables Rock Stars for x2, x3, x5 and x10. Let us know if this is too hard or too easy for your child through the comments box on Purple Mash.
