Home Learning

 

Please find the home learning for the week below. 

They are now organised into each day rather then by subject as hopefully this will find it easier to understand which task to do each day. 

 

Have fun and make sure you're continuing to send us your amazing pictures of your hard work.

Speech and Language resources 

Home Learning

Below are some useful links with activities/websites for you to explore with your children:

 

Newsround will also be on daily at 9:15am, 12:10pm and 4pm - we normally watch this after lunch so would be great to keep up this routine!

 

Below there are some useful checklists about the HFW and Common Exception Words that your children should be able to spell by the end of the Year. 

Please take this time to practise these spellings with your child. 

We welcome you to the Year 2 Information Page!

 

 

Throughout the Summer Term we will be looking at a new context called    'Go Green'

Within this context we will explore a variety of topics including comparing Monet and Van Gough. We will also be looking at David Attenborough and the impact he has had on the world. In Science we will be identifying plants, trees and leaves, dissecting these and drawing scientific diagrams. 

Trips in Year 2 

 

On Thursday 23rd January we went up to the Bridget Riley exhibition which was held at the Hayward Gallery. 

We were so lucky as we got to look around the exhibition at her lovely paintings and had a workshop with an artist. 

 

 

 

On the 11th March we went to Tillgate park. 

We toke part in an interactive workshop and learnt all about how animals adapt to their habitats.

Homework

Each week the children will receive spellings and times tables appropriate to their level. These will be in the children's homework books each week.

 

SPELLINGS: Your children will be given individualised Phonics group spellings. These will be stuck onto the homework sheet every week. If you require an additional copy of these, please speak to your class teacher.

 

The children must also participate in 30 minutes of online tasks via Reading Eggs or RM EasiMaths. 

 

Please click on the links to reach both of these sites.

Additional learning at home

 You can always carry on your learning, even when at home!  Make sure you read for 10 minutes each day and then record it in your yellow reading record books to show your teachers!

Maths is also all around you!  Can you count the steps in your house?  Add together door numbers?  Measure and weigh food/items when cooking?

Always practise your 2,5, and 10 times tables too!
