Year 2

Home Learning

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. 

Easter Holidays!

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.

Home Learning 18/5/20 & 1/6/20

 

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. 

Home Learning 18.5.20 / 1.6.20

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 1 - Numbers to 100

Chapter 2 - Addition and Subtraction

Chapter 3 - Multiplication of 2, 5 and 10

Chapter 4 - Multiplication and Division of 2, 5 and 10

Chapter 5 - Length

Chapter 7 - Temperature

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher via ClassDojo.

Here is a link  to free Big Cat e-books which is the scheme that we follow in school.

Reminders and useful information

PE - This term we have an indoor PE on a Monday and outdoor PE on a Friday. All children will need school shorts and t-shirt for indoor PE and trainers and a jumper for outdoor PE.

 

Homework - The children will receive a homework menu at the start of each term. The children will be required to complete their homework in their homework books and return it on a Wednesday. Homework books will then be handed out again on Friday ready to complete the task for the following week.

 

Reading - Please listen to your child read and help us to encourage the love of reading. Each class has a reward chart with prizes to encourage the children to read as much as possible. Children can change their books as regularly as they are reading so please put your books in the basket to be changed any day of the week.

 

Times Tables - In year 2, we will be focusing on the 10, 5, 2 and 3 times tables. Please practise these with your children at home. We will be testing the children on these throughout the year. Your child will also receive a login for Timestable Rockstars, a fun and competitive way of practising too!

 

Spellings - The children are working hard to learn how to spell the common exception words for year 2. Please see a list of these at the bottom of the page and in your child's homework book. We will be sending a selection of these words home on a regular basis to support your child. These will be words that we have focused on in school so they should be familiar to your child. 

 

The year 2 team thank you for your continued support.
