Welcome to the Year 2 Home Learning Page

On this page you will find ideas and resources for home learning. Please check in regularly for new udates.

We understand that some families do not have access to a printer, but there is also a range of suggestions for practical activities that do not require paper and pencil as well as many e-learning links for children to complete directly onto their tablet or computer. 

There is no expectation to complete everything that is provided, just choose what suits your child and your home resources the best. 

Staying Safe Online

Please be vigilant when  your children are accessing the internet for pleasure or for learning. Ensure parent controls are enabled as appropriate and please talk to your children about how to keep themselves safe and how to use the internet appropriately. 

There is a lot of information to be found at Internet Matters and at Thinkuknow

Watch the Jessie and Friends videos with your child on how to use the internet safely.

Week 2

Maths - don't forget to have some fun and apply these types of questions to everyday life so that your child becomes super competent and confident in using these skills! Cutting sandwiches, pizzas, sharing out items, pairing socks and similar activities will help embed their newly learnt maths skills smiley
English - Grammar and Punctuation - try to put these skills in to practice by writing factual accounts or stories. You could even write a diary! We would love to  see your stories -  email them to us and we can share them on the website smiley
English - Reading Comprehension. Read the account and then answer questions about it. The questions vary in the amount of challenge. Whenever you share books or hear your child read, asking them questions helps them to look and read for meaning and makes them more fluent and accomplished readers.
Science - Remember, exploring the garden, cooking, looking at how different materials in the house are suited for a particular purpose, growing plants and vegetables are all part of learning about science. Perhaps you and your child could make a fact file? Perhaps you could share with us any planting you may have done?
