Year 2

Welcome to the Home learning page for Year 2.

We have uploaded a grid that closely matches English lessons  that we would have been teaching in school after the holidays.  These are ideas for learning and each one may have taken longer than one session to complete in school. For example we would have planned a story, written the beginning, middle and end on separate days and had a day to proofread and make corrections to provide a full weeks worth of learning. Of course, we would also love it if you could listen to your child read as often as possible, practise the comprehension skills and listen to a range of stories together.

The White Rose Maths is an excellent source for supporting you in teaching maths at home. Follow the link below  to find daily maths lessons and accompany sheets. We have now provided all the Year 2 children with their own username and password for TTRockstars. This is a fun, educational  maths games which will help your child practise the multiplication and division facts at speed for the times tables we have been practising. These two activities would be more than enough on a daily basis however there are also additional workbooks provided under the maths heading.

In the grid of activities we hope that you can see we have tried to provide fun, engaging activities for all other areas of the curriculum that do not require worksheets.

Phonics activities for the children at Phase 6 phonics are uploaded separately. Children could also use Phonicsplay to practise their phonics skills.

In these very strange times we recognise that you are doing you best, many of you trying to help children learn and work at home at the same time. Do your best to keep the basics going whilst giving your child some routine and remember that little and often each day is better than your child working for a ‘full school day’. Many ‘life skills’ can also be taught so a day of baking, gardening etc is just as valuable in providing learning experiences for your child.

We look forward to seeing work that your child is proud of and of course to be there to answer any questions that you may have now that you can contact us through the email below.

Best wishes and keep safe,

Mrs  Butler and Mrs Stefaniuk
