Striving to be the best we can!
Due to school closure, we have prepared some home learning for our year 2 children. We have created a Home Learning Task Sheet. This has lots of suggested activities that your child could complete during their time at home. We have also included some links to suggested online learning resources too.
In addition to the task sheet, we have also devised a Home Learning Timetable which offers a suggestion of how you might structure your child's learning at home. Please choose an activity from the Home Learning Task Sheet to fit into each slot of the suggested timetable.
We have also linked some useful resources and online links below which you could use to support your child's learning further.
Please ensure that you and your family take a break from home learning over the Easter Holidays. As you know, we should have had two weeks off of school so please take this time to relax, have fun and enjoy one another's company. To encourage you to do so, we have not set any home learning tasks to be completed during this time and do not expect to see any work over this period. Please make the most of the rest and pick up your home learning again on the 20th April 2020.
Home Learning - Weeks 3 and 4
We have prepared a new Home Learning Task Sheet with suggested ideas to help support your home learning following the Easter break. Again, these are only suggestions so please do adapt them to meet your needs. You may also still choose from the previous Home Learning Task Sheet or perhaps mix and match between the two - please do what suits you! These tasks will fit with the timetable that was uploaded originally if you have been following this structure.
Home Learning - Weeks 5 and 6
Please find below a new Home Learning Task sheet with some different ideas to help you with your home learning for the week commencing 4th May 2020.
We have prepared a new Home Learning Task Sheet with suggested ideas to help support your home learning next week and during the first week back after the May half term. Again, these are only suggestions so please do adapt them to meet your needs. You may also still choose from the previous Home Learning Task Sheet or perhaps mix and match between them - please do what suits you! These tasks will fit with the timetable that was uploaded originally if you have been following this structure.
Maths No Problem!
To support your child’s maths learning during school closures and ease the transition to school from home, we are now able to utilise the Maths No Problem Scheme through an online version called Parent Guides.
You will shortly be receiving an email from Maths No Problem! to invite you to the platform. From this, you will be able to create a new MNP Hub account. Once this has been created, you will be able to access Maths content for your child’s year group, along with help guides and lesson support. You will also have the option to receive further ongoing support (from Maths No Problem!) via email.
We would like you to focus on the following chapters. This work will be mainly revision for you child and will reinforce the learning we have already done.
Most chapters in Textbook 2A
Chapter 9 - 12 in Textbook 2B
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher via ClassDojo.
BBC Bitesize Lessons
In addition to the above home learning tasks, BBC Bitesize will also be launching online lessons beginning on the 20th April. This may provide a great alternative for some of you. This will be available via the link below.
Oak National Academy have also launched an online classroom in conjunction with the DfE. This has some great lessons for both maths and English, as well as covering the foundation subjects and is completely free to use.
Big Cat Reading Books
Here is a link to free Big Cat e-books which is the scheme that we follow in school. Your child should know the colour band that they are currently reading. After the book has been read, there is a comprehension quiz to complete too. In addition to this, please keep reading lots of books from home.

The website below is also a great one to access reading books on - it has over 7000 books available that the children can either read or listen to. They can choose a topic that interests them and then select books to read all about.
