Good Morning Butterfly Class!

Welcome back Butterfly Class! I hope you had a well-deserved rest from home schooling and managed to fit in lots of fun things last week. Looking forward to hearing all about it.

Hope you are ready to start again after your recharge. I’m looking forward to seeing your work once again on class dojo.

What you will need


WALT- interpret data.

1. Warm up your maths brains by writing 10 different questions that give you the answer 30. Don’t forget to try and use all 4 calculation signs and why not challenge yourself to include a word problem too.

2. Today’s lesson is all about recapping our learning from before half term, have you remembered how to tally, how to draw a pictogram and how to interpret one? Follow the video and work through the questions on the resource sheet when asked.

Video – Found under the resources section.

Questions worksheet – Found in the resources below


WALT – Spell words with the suffix -ful (a suffix is a group of letters that can be added to the end of a word to change the meaning)


  1. Can you read this list of words? What do you notice about the end of each word? painful, careful, useful, hopeful, beautiful, cheerful, thankful, wonderful, powerful, helpful If you said they all end in ‘ful’ well done.
  2. Rather than doing all your handwriting at once, why not try playing some of the games and doing the quiz below after a few lines.  You can find the handwriting sheet under today’s work. Remember, you can copy the words straight into a book if you would prefer.

WALA our sense of hearing

  1. We are starting a new block of work in science, finding out about our senses.

The first sense we will find out about is hearing. Do you know what part of our body we hear with? Can you point to it?

  1. Watch this clip on Espresso
  2. _sound/video_makes_sound_1.html Try to watch both parts.
  3. Now, if possible, go outside for a walk or into your garden. What can you hear?  There is a sheet you can write on in the resources section if you would like to use it. Try to sort the sounds into loud and quiet when you come back inside.
  4. Year 2 – As an extension of your science skills I’d like you to try a science test.

Ask your parents for a wooden spoon and a metal pan. Ask your adult to bang the spoon in the pan while you are standing near it. Now take 5 steps backwards and ask them to bang the pan and spoon again. Keep taking 5 steps and repeat hitting the spoon on the pan. What do you notice about the sound, the further away you get? Does it get louder or quieter? Why do you think this might be?
