Today's task is to practice one of year 2's spelling rules. Practise writing some of the words in your book focussing on your handwriting. This week's spellings are the sound /u/ spelt with 'o'. Once your practised writing them, choose 5 of the words and put them each into a sentence. If it is possible, send me a photo of your work, I'd love to see how carefully you can practise your handwriting!
Make sure your letters are all the same size, tall letters touch the top line and descender letters go underneath the line.
Today's task in to practise the key arithmetic skills we have worked so hard to learn in year 2.
Answer these questions and prove your answers by showing your working out in your workbooks.

As part of our topic learning about Kenya we have found out lots of different interesting facts about their way of life and compared them with our lives in England. One of the last few areas of Kenyan life we are yet to learn about is the different food they eat.
Using the internet, research different food that they commonly eat in Kenya. Compare it with food that you usually eat. What is similar and what is different?
