Hi Year 2

Happy New Year to you and your families!

For the time being we will be doing our learning online. Try your best to do the activities below.

My friend is thinking of opening a cafe to sell yummy cakes to the people of Great Yarmouth. She wants to offer her customers some offers to entice more people to come to the cafe. As she is very busy cooking all of the cakes, I told her Year 2 would help her with the prices of her offers. Do you think you can help?

Here are the prices of the cakes if they are part of the offer:

Victoria sponge = 63p
Scone = 34 p
Cupcake = 56 p
Shortbread = 28 p
Biscuit = 15 p
Gingerbread = 49 p
Chocolate Oatie = 42 p

For these challenges, you will need to find the costs of the cakes and add them together to find the total price.

Challenge 1

Please work out your answer using the partitioning method we have learnt in school.

  1. Scone + Chocolate Oatie =
  2. Cupcake + Victoria Sponge =
  3. Biscuit + Scone =
  4. Chocolate Oatie + Victoria Sponge =
  5. Scone + Victoria sponge =
  6. Biscuit + Chocolate Oatie =

Challenge 2

Please work out your answer using the partitioning method we have learnt in school.

  1. Victoria Sponge + Shortbread =
  2. Gingerbread + Chocolate Oatie =
  3. Cupcake + Biscuit =
  4. Scone + Shortbread =
  5. Scone + Cupcake =
  6. Chocolate Oatie + Shortbread =

Challenge 3

Can you come up with 6 of your own offers using 3 different cakes each time.

E.g. Scone + Gingerbread + Biscuit =



Before the Christmas holiday, we were looking at Health during the Roman era. Today, we are looking at the contributions of Hippocrates, who was a doctor during the Roman era who played a significant part in how health was seen. Read below to find out about Hippocrates:


Can you down facts you have learnt about Hippocrates into sentences?

You could even find research your own interesting facts on Hippocrates using in the internet, but make sure you write ‘Hippocrates facts for kids’ when searching!



Can you draw a picture of Hippocrates that we are going to use when writing about Hippocrates? Make sure you use your pencil lightly to start with so any mistakes you make can’t be seen!

Have fun!




Plans for next term…

Next term, we will continue to look at how health has changed over time, by looking at health in the Middle Ages. We will be researching significant individuals who have made contributions to health and how they compare to the ways we look at health in the present day. We will also be looking at how religion played an important part in people’s health and will be doing some work with the Minster.

We will continue to discover new genres of music and how these make us feel and will be looking at different art genres and the effects these have on people.

Let’s hope it’s another great term!




Autumn Term

What a great first term back at St. George’s year 2 have had. The children have settled back brilliantly and are working very hard.

We started the term looking at our concept, health. We explored why eating a balanced diet, exercising and good hygiene is so important for our health and the children wrote an information text to educate others. We received a letter from Joe Wicks and we wrote a letter back explaining what our favourite exercise is and why we need to exercise.

After learning about health from the present day, we took a step back in history to the Roman era to see how things have changed since. We had a day at Medical School, where each child had a patient complaining of head pain. As we were Romans, we performed a surgery called trepanning, where we had to drill a hole in the patient’ skull. No need to panic, the patients were balloons and no body got hurt in the process! Next, we found out about the Roman’s hygiene habits, which took us to the Roman Baths. We had to become archaeologists for the day when we received a phone call, after a discovery had been made. After some digging, we found what was believed to be Roman tiles from a Roman bath! We looked at how the Romans found ways of getting clean water and discovered that still today, Africa hasn’t got easy access to clean water. This gave us a chance to begin our study on Africa and we were shocked to learn about how different health is in Africa!

Alongside this, we have also been looking at how Music  and Art can change our emotions and the way we feel. This also lead to us visiting the elderly people at Vincent Court to spread some joy by sining a few Christmas songs!

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
