Year 2 Home Learning Summer 2

Week One


Listen (or read if you have the book) to The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl using this YouTube link.  The audio version is just under 22 minutes long. You could listen to in parts.   You could also read along with the reader!

The Magic Finger

Complete the question booklet. This could be spread out over the week or even two weeks.

You don’t need to print these questions if you don’t have printer access, you or an adult could copy them onto paper. Children working lower than the secure level could answer these verbally to an adult. This will be excellent written comprehension practise for everyone else.

Write a character description for one of the characters you have met in so far in The Magic Finger. What do they look like? What are they like? What do they like to do?


Continue to follow White Rose every day and practise times tables.


Write 3 things that you could do to help you feel better when you are worried about something.

Draw a problem or worry you may have. What will you do to help get rid of it?

Create your own Yoga sequence. You can use the poster attached for pose ideas or use others that you may know.

Can you teach your sequence to someone in your family?


What is the life cycle of a human? Discuss with someone at home and create your own timeline. You can use the template suggested or create your own. Try and include some sentences to describe the changes.

See PowerPoint attached for lots of detail and information on each stage.

There is a ‘2do’ template for this set on Purple Mash which you could use rather than using paper.

Think about when you were a baby and compare this to now you are a child. What can you now do? What has changed?

What will be different when you are a teenager, adult, or an elderly person? You can choose how you present this work.


This should be a discussion with a parent, parents please use these questions to lead the discussion. You may think of other things to also discuss. There is a PowerPoint attached which we would have used in school. You can use the final page to print for your scroll template if you wish or create your own.

  • What is an agreement or promise?
  • Can you think of any you have made?
  • What should happen when you make an agreement or promise?
  • Should You keep it?
  • How would you feel if someone broke their promise or agreement to you?
  • How could you help yourself to remember the promise you have made so you don’t break it?
Using a promise you may have already made or make a new one now, create a scroll saying what your promise is and sign it!
