Welcome to the Year 2


Home Learning Page


Here is a lovely little activity to have a go at if you fancy it! Anna has very kindly written a set of instructions to help you make a lovely African necklace, like the ones we learned about in school. You can find the document below in the Files to Download section.

Happy bead making and send us your pictures!


We do hope that you have all had a wonderful half term and that you have managed to get out and about a little bit and enjoy this glorious weather. We have been enjoying lots of barbeques and pottering in the garden and have discovered some lovely country walks too :)

Below you will find another week of home learning. If you have any questions, then please get in touch or if you would like to share any images of your work or photos you may have, then please also send them along. You will find our email addresses below. Take care, enjoy the sunshine and make sure you are drinking lots of water and wearing your suncream!

Remember we are just an email away if you need us at all!

Some ideas for this week...

Here's great idea to stay active at home for the

whole month of May! 


Classroom Secrets Kids

Classroom Secrets Kids is a brand new website from Classroom Secrets, a resource used by teachers and is packed full of fun and engaging and activities for children linked to the National Curriculum. 

PLEASE NOTE: This website does require a parent to sign up but everything is currently free to access. 


Please explore the following areas of the Year 2 area, using the drop down options.  These are areas of the Curriculum we have covered in class and would be useful for the children to recap. 

  • GPS (Grammar Punctuation and Spelling)
  • Maths 
  • Phonics
  • Reading 
    • try a reading comprehension quiz
  • Spelling  



Open the Book (New Lesson Added!)

If you are missing our Wednesday Open the Book assemblies, Rev Blunt has put together a video for this week's assembly



House of Dance

House of Dance have decided to put together a super cool fun timetable of all things HOD once a day. This will be LIVE on theHOUSE OF DANCE LTD Facebook page and directly brought to you by one of the HOD crew. Each day there will be something different from dance, drama, singing and not to forget some super fun challenges to keep the children entertained and active. 

Join along via Facebook, Monday - Friday 2-2:30pm for KS1

HOD also have pre-recorded sessions on their YouTube channel should you wish to use those as well.



Chester Zoo

Chester Zoo will be live again this Friday on their Facebook page. 


***Please scroll to the bottom of the page for

this week's learning*** 



Dear Parents and Children

Home learning will be provided on this page for each day of the week.

The suggested home learning for each day will comprise:

  • A Maths Activity (suggested time 30 minutes)
  • An English Activity (suggested time 30 minutes)
  • Daily Reading
  • Spellings (suggested time 15 mins)

Also please choose one or two tasks from the Year 2 Wider Curriculum Grid to complete each week. This can be found in the 'Files to Download' section below. 


Words of the Week

Please learn the following Year 2 words for the week. You could ask a parent/helper to test you each Friday like we do in school.

here           hear         see          sea          bare

bear           one          won         sun          son





Reading is the most important thing that you can do whilst you are at home :)

You should have been provided with some extra reading books to practise over the period of the school closure (however long that may be).

Please apply the same rules as we have in school and only read one school book per week. Children need to build familiarity with a book to help them to become fluent readers. Regular practise of the same book will ensure this.

Please of course continue to supplement your child’s reading with your own books and encourage lots of reading for pleasure :) 

For more books to read at home Oxford Owl offer a free e-book library. Books can be selected by book band colour. This is an excellent resource for home learning in the coming weeks.
