Year 2 Home Learning

Welcome to the year 2 home learning page

We hope you are keeping yourselves and others safe in these unprecedented times. We recognise that these are anxious times for all and we don’t want to add to that anxiety by asking children to complete new learning.  Our recommendation is to spend as much time reading, talking, playing board games and having quality family time.

 

Online Learning

 

 

The Oak National Academy is an online learning resource created by teachers.  It will provide each year group with 3 lessons a day.

BBC Bitesize have also launched some fantastic daily lessons. There will be 3 lessons a day (English, Maths, Foundation.)

Weekly activities called 2Dos will be set for your child but there are many activities and games you can explore.

Activities will continue to be set on Mathletics for your child and certificates can still be earned.

Your child can challenge themselves to score more points or improve their accuracy and help their class in a battle.

Reading is great! Your child can read books, comics, newspapers or recipes. They can continue to complete online book quizzes on Accelerated Reader.

There are also lots of online reading resources available at the moment. Please take a look at:

Audible - https://stories.audible.com/start-listen

David Walliams - https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/

Oliver Jeffers - https://www.oliverjeffers.com/abookaday

Cbeebies - https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/shows/bedtime-stories

All pupils have login details for Mathletics, Purple Mash, Times Tables Rockstars and Accelerated Reader but please email Miss Pembroke if you would like a reminder of these. 

In addition to these online resources, we have added some suggested activities in the Files to Download section at the bottom of this page if you would like to try them. 

Keep Active

Fresh air works wonders! A daily walk (keeping distance from others of course) is a great way to recharge your mind and body. Look at nature. Create art using leaves and sticks. Or why not get in the garden and play with a ball or draw on paving slabs.  Please look at Mrs Holland 's super fitness ideas too! You might like to try some online workout clips. A local gym, CWOne (that Miss Pembroke's children attend) are going to create 3 workout videos per week for children to do in their homes, either on their own or involving a parent (there's no excuse for us to not get involved too!) They will also do a cooking session too which should be fun. There is a cost for this service. Also Joe Wicks has just announced he will be doing live PE sessions on his you tube channel at 9am Monday-Friday. Or perhaps at the end of the day you might like to try some yoga clips (such as cosmic kids on you tube) to help your child unwind, ready for bed.

Contact

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We would also love to hear about any work your child is completing at home or if you want to share any work or pictures with us via email.
