Year 2 Home Learning Guidance

Please see below for ideas for your child’s home learning should they receive a positive covid test result and feel well enough to continue learning at home. Please note that online lessons are not running as teachers will be teaching lessons in the classroom to the rest of the class.

Complete their weekly spellings. Games such as Pictionary, scribble draw and roll and spell are fun ways to practice. Your children should be experts at these games by now ☺️
Practice times tables using TopMarks ‘Hit the Button’ game. This is also a useful game for number bond facts and doubling/halving.
Read daily and record in diaries. Remember your child can read online books on Bug Club which has handy, readym-made comprehension quizzes.
Play ‘Karate Cats.’ This is a grammar, punctuation and spelling game on the BBC Bitesize website. 🐈‍ 🥋
Your child’s logins are located in their diary. If you do not have access to this, please send an email to the Y2 email address.

Many thanks,

The Year 2 Team

☠️ Year 2 Pirate Day ☠️

Year 2 have had lots of fun today! This morning, we carried out a range of activities including a treasure hunt around school (map reading focus), making our own Pirate Passports and creating our own plot/wanted posters for our pirate characters.

In Science, we carried out an investigation looking at materials. We built pirate ships from cardboard, lollipop sticks, cellophane, paper towels and foil. We discussed which materials we thought would float, sink and/or absorb water.
