Wednesday 22nd April 2020 Wicklewood Primary School Swift class Year 2

Hello Marvelous Swift Class!

Wow lots of amazing work on Purple Mash, I have enjoyed looking at it all. Thank you for all of your Great Fire of London work, the fire pictures were super! Don’t forget to hand in you work or save it. I add little comments and stickers to your finished work which you can read. Your work is stored in your ‘Done 2dos folder’.
From Miss Harvey 😊

Read, Write, Inc.

Your child will need to practise their phonics daily.

Please access the ‘Read Write Inc Phonics Lessons at Home Page’ on YouTube at

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ/featured for a daily phonics lesson.

Parents should first watch the 3 minute ‘Parent Video: Introduction to Daily Read Write Inc. Phonics Lesson’. There are many other helpful Read Write Inc videos on this page for parents and on the Oxford Owl website.

The sound your child will need to focus on will depend on their RWI group before the school closure. Today’s phonic lessons are:

English – spelling

I would like you to practise adding the suffix -ness to create nouns.

Here are the spellings to practise this: kind, kindness, sad, sadness, good, goodness, weak, weakness, foolish, foolishness, dark, darkness

If you need a little bit more help watch ‘Adding suffixes –ness and -er to make nouns’ video on espresso.

Practise writing your spellings down using a pencil or outdoors! Can you use each of your spellings in a sentence? Don’t forget capital letter and punctuation.


See separate activities to practise multiplication and division. This includes a reminder, two levels of practice sheet (write answers in home school sharing book, exercise book or a notebook), guidance if you get a bit stuck and a few questions to check your understanding. All the answers are provided so that you can ‘tick or fix’ your work with an adult.

Can I count in my 5s? A bit stuck

Can I create division and multiplication fact families? Mild

Can I solve multiplication and division fact family problems? Hot

Music and DT

I challenge you to make a musical instrument using objects/ rubbish you can find at home. How many different ways can you play your instrument? Does it make a high or low sound?
