Welcome to the Year 2

Good morning Year 2!

A nice idea for this week...

House of Dance will be streaming live on their House of Dance LTD Facebook page each day this week at the following times:


2:00 - 2:30pm KS1

2:30 - 3:00pm KS2


There are also pre-recorded sessions on their YouTube channel should you wish to use those as well:


Good Morning Year 2 and a Happy Thursday!

I hope you are all getting on ok this week with your work. We've had some lovely work sent to us by e-mail which has really cheered us up. Keep up the good work everybody. We are very proud of you all!

This week's theme for your windows is 'sunshine'. Has anybody made one yet? Maybe you could have a go! If anyone would like to send us a picture of their rainbow or their sunshine, we would love to put them on our website to make it look beautiful!

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

Dear Parents and Children

You will now have received your ‘Home Learning Pack’ . This pack includes:

  • An exercise book
  • A pencil and a pen
  • A ‘Maths No Problem’ Workbook
  • A handwriting book
  • Reading Books

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. 


We will provide ten  ‘Words of the Week’ to learn during the course of the week.


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.

* bath     * people     * because    *every   * hour   

* water     * find        *great          * move     * again




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.

Write out the following words onto some cards/pieces of paper. 

Play a matching pairs game. You will need a partner so ask a parent or sibling if they would like to help you. Turn all of the cards face down in front of you. Take it in turns to turn over 2 cards. You must find the past tense and the present tense of the word to make a matching pair. For example 'try' and 'tried' would make a pair. If you do not find a matching pair, you must turn the cards back over. If you find a matching pair, you can keep the cards. The winner is the player with the most cards at the end of the game!
