Snow Day Home Learning

Hello Year 2,

We hope that you are all well and enjoying the snow. Now, we know that some of you will love to complete some indoor learning activities as well as having lots of fun in the snow. Below are some excellent ways you can spend your day and they all match the learning in class too!


In maths, we have been learning about fractions. Together, we have been discovering how to find and recognise ½, ¼, ⅓ and ¾. Below is a link to lots of useful videos and top tips that you could view to help consolidate your learning around fractions.

BBC Bitesize - Fractions

When you have finished reading these, there are some short quizzes that you can complete with your family. You may even want to create a poster all about fractions and share it with your teacher when we are back at school.

You could also:

1. Gather some objects around your house (toys, pasta, pencils etc) and use them to calculate the following:

½ of 16 =

¼ of 24 =

⅓ of 18 =

¾ of 20 =

2. When playing outside, can you make different shapes with the snow? When you have made the shapes, can you split them into halves, quarters of even thirds?

3. Play Hit the Button to practise your time tables.


In our recent learning, we have been writing reports around Bengal tigers. You have all done a fantastic job with these reports and we thought you may want to create a mini version all about different mammals at home. Follow this link to learn more about mammals:

BBC Bitesize - What are Mammals?

After watching these videos and completing the quiz, could you write a report including:

How do we know if an animal is a mammal?

Which animals are mammals?

A 'did you know?' section

You could draw pictures to make your report look really appealing.

If you feel like you want to do some more creative writing, could you describe this picture:

Can you use expanded noun phrases, commas in a list, conjunctions and exclamation sentences to describe this picture?

You could also use it to write a story.

Creative Challenge

It's now time to get outside. Wrap up warm as you need to go outside and build a mammal (a Bengal tiger is one to remember) out of the snow. Take a picture and send it in to us!

We hope that you have a lovely day of learning and we are looking forward to hearing all about it when we are back at school,

Miss Wheldrick, Mr Nazir and Miss Rawson
