Main Lesson
We have been learning about Fractions in school for the last couple of weeks so we are going to finish off that work this week.
Today we are going to count in fractions. This is our last fractions lesson.

In school, we used some post-it notes. We cut them all in half and then put down one half at a time so that we could count in halves.
You can do the same thing with quarters to help you to count in quarters and thirds to help you to count in thirds.

TALK THROUGH THIS POWERPOINT WITH AN ADULT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND ALL ABOUT NON-UNIT FRACTIONS. YOU DO NOT NEED TO WRITE IT OUT IN YOUR BOOKS. IT IS LIKE IN SCHOOL WHEN WE TALK ABOUT IT ON THE CARPET FIRST.

Here are your activities.

 6. PE


We have been doing lots of dancing as penguins this half term and today we are using a clip from the film ‘Happy Feet’ to help us.

You are going to create a dance based on ‘Happy Feet’ to ‘Boogie Wonderland’. You need to show good timing with the music and use speed, level and direction to develop your dance.


Listen to the beat of the music and count in 8s. Try to time your movements to the beats of the music.


What is the main mood or feeling you get from this dance?


Can you describe some of the different ways Mumble moves in the dance?
• shuffles
• taps
• stamps
• kicks
• slides
• turns

Try this dance to get going. Practise it without the music first and then put it together with the music. Have fun Year 2!

1. With hands on hips step behind step together (4 times – total 8 beats)
2. Turn in a large circle to the right – arms out (total 8 beats)
3. Turn in a large circle to the left – arms out (total 8 beats)

7. Prayer Service

A reading from the Gospel according to John

The sisters sent Jesus a message: “Lord, your dear friend is ill.”
When Jesus heard it, he said, “The final result of this illness will not be the death of Lazarus; this has happened in order to bring glory to God, and it will be the means by which the Son of God will receive glory.”
Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. Yet when he received the news that Lazarus was ill, he stayed where he was for two more days. Then he said to the disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.”
When Jesus arrived, he found that Lazarus had been buried four days before.

When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed in the house. Martha said to Jesus, “If you had been here, Lord, my brother would not have died! But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask him for.”

“Your brother will rise to life,” Jesus told her.
“I know,” she replied, “that he will rise to life on the last day.”
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me will live, even though they die; and all those who live and believe in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
“Yes, Lord!” she answered. “I do believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.”
Jesus saw her weeping, and he saw how the people who were with her were weeping also; his heart was touched, and he was deeply moved. “Where have you buried him?” he asked them.
“Come and see, Lord,” they answered.
Jesus wept. “See how much he loved him!” the people said.
But some of them said, “He gave sight to the blind man, didn't he? Could he not have kept Lazarus from dying?”
Deeply moved once more, Jesus went to the tomb, which was a cave with a stone placed at the entrance. “Take the stone away!” Jesus ordered.
Martha, the dead man's sister, answered, “There will be a bad smell, Lord. He has been buried four days!”
Jesus said to her, “Didn't I tell you that you would see God's glory if you believed?” They took the stone away. Jesus looked up and said, “I thank you, Father, that you listen to me. I know that you always listen to me, but I say this for the sake of the people here, so that they will believe that you sent me.” After he had said this, he called out in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” He came out, his hands and feet wrapped in grave clothes, and with a cloth round his face. “Untie him,” Jesus told them, “and let him go.”
Many of the people who had come to visit Mary saw what Jesus did, and they believed in him.

Jesus hears that his friend Lazarus who lives in Bethany is sick. Sadly, by the time Jesus gets there Lazarus is dead and has been buried for four days.

Jesus goes to the tomb and asks them to roll away the stone which was blocking the entrance. He tells Lazarus to come out of the tomb. Lazarus walks out, covered in the cloths that he was buried in.

How do you think Mary, Martha and the other people there feel when they see Lazarus walking out of the tomb?

Why do you think Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead? (So that the people believe that Jesus is the Son of God. To show that he brings life to those who believe in him.)

Unfortunately, sometimes, just like Lazarus in today’s gospel, people do get sick. When this happens, they go to the hospital where doctors and nurses work hard to care for them and try to make them better.

We are hearing a lot about people being sick and the coronavirus in the news at the moment. It can be really worrying. Lots of things have had to change, and that can make us feel sad, especially if we miss our friends and family who we can’t meet up with at the moment.

Jesus knows how we feel. He felt very sad and cried for his friend Lazarus who he loved.

We are all doing what we can to keep ourselves and other people fit and well. We are very grateful for all the doctors, nurses and everyone who is working so hard to care for those who are in need.

God gives life to us all. God created us and wants every single one of us to live a happy life, with all the things that we need to grow and be the best people we can be.

And Jesus came to show us how to live, how to treat others. How does Jesus ask us to treat others?

So this Lent, let’s think about what we can do to help the people that are most in need, here and around the world, so that all people can live their lives to the full. It might be hard, but even small things that we do can make a big difference.

What will you do this week to help make a big difference to the lives of other people, especially those who are in need?
