Home Learning in Year 2

Due to the closure of the school, we have put together a set of home learning activities to support children while they are at home.

Below you will find  a weekly folder. This will include a document outlining the children's tasks for that week and any additional resources they may need to complete them. We are asking that this work is completed in the children's Home Learning book, so that we can evidence what the children have done.    

In addition to this, your child can log into our school website, where they can access activities that have been set by us. Please see the inside of Home Learning books for more details. Set tasks will be visible on their homepage and they can also access the 'Activities' section for additional games and resources. We will be encouraging the children to complete a short blog entry on the school website every day, so that they can share their learning with us. This can be found at the bottom of the children's home page on the school website.


A message from all our staff!

We have created a special message for you all to let you know how proud we are of all your hard work. We cannot wait to see you all again! Enjoy!

After reading the story Not Now, Bernard!, we sequenced events and looked at how we can use time adverbials and adjectives to retell the story to engage the reader. We used boxing clever to orally rehearse the story using our best performance voices in preparation for writing our own version of the story



Year 2 are off to a fantastic start! We have been introduced to the Times Table Rockstars app and are using it to learn our times tables. Lots of us have improved our speed and accuracy already! Remember, you can log in at home to practice too. Rapid recall of these facts has a massive impact on children's learning in all areas of Maths, so keep up the good work Year 2!
