Hello year 2! I hope you are all well.


Here are your learning activities for today. Don't forget to log on to your live group sessions with me this morning for English and Maths.



We are going to carry on looking at Dougal's Deep Sea Diary today. We will be practicing using expanded noun phrases to describe what Dougal saw when he went diving and found the treasure.


  • Can you remember 3 different things that Dougal saw inside the treasure chest?


We are going to use this picture to write from today.


An expanded noun phrase includes adjectives and nouns. A noun is a person, place or thing. An adjective is a describing word that usually describes the noun.


Task 1

In the treasure chest, Dougal found 2 crowns, some golden coins and an map.

  • For each of the 3 things, write down 3 adjectives that could describe them. These can be written in your literacy book.


Task 2

We are going to use these adjectives to write some expanded noun phrases. 

Expanded noun phrases are usually written     adjective, adjective noun.


I would like you to write some sentences describing what Dougal saw when he found the treasure chest. 

Here are some examples to get you started:

 Dougal saw some small, golden coins.

 He saw an old, hand-drawn map.


Make sure for each sentence you use capital letters, finger spaces and a full stop. Remember to think carefully about the size of your letters and your handwriting.


In today's lesson we will be carrying on looking at money. Today's focus is counting money in pence.


Maths warm up

Practice counting in 2s, 5s and 10s using our physical warm up actions.


Counting pence

When you are counting coins, always look whether it is a 1p, 2p, 5p or 10p coin. Use your skills of counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to help you.  Complete the worksheet in your packs counting the coins in the jar.
