Bonjour Year 2👋
How are you all? I hope everyone is enjoying the home learning activities. I have been thoroughly impressed by the work I have seen on PurpleMash. Keep up the wonderful efforts!
As we enter the month of May, I have a new quote of the month to share. Although we are missing the classroom very much, we must take inspiration from Percy. I am very proud of you all, please continue to persevere whilst learning at home.
As these weekly blogs develop I am still trying to understand what works best for everyone, so I have made some small changes/additions to the activities starting with spelling!
Weekly spellings will now look very similar to those you usually receive for homework. The table below lists the words for you to look, say, cover, write and check. Do not worry if you cannot print it out, just copy them down onto a piece of paper!
NUMBER OF THE WEEK
Just like we do in class, what can you tell me about the number…
Is it odd or even? Can you make this number using coins? What is 10 more? How about 10 less? Can you use 55 in a multiplication number sentence? What does it look like in word format?

I haven't forgotten Year 2! This week I have a bit of a riddle for you.. The answer will be revealed in next weeks blog.
Week 2 brain teaser answer:
Some of you may have realised I tricked you. There are actually two possible answers.
The hexagon has 6 sides and 6 vertices. The pentagon has 5 sides and 5 vertices. The square has 4 sides and 4 vertices. Therefore, the next shape in the pattern must have one less side/vertex than the square… A TRIANGLE. Your answer could have been A or B.
That is all for now. Take care Year 2,
Miss McKenna ❤️
