Year 2

As from next week the children's remote learning will be ready to access on a Monday morning for the week. 

Unfortunately due to the short notice we have not had a chance to create a full planning grid of lessons for you this week but below are some activities and ideas for your child to carry out to keep their learning going.


Reading Eggs - don't forget to access the spelling  lessons as well as the reading lessons.


You should all have your logins but if you need them resent, please email me and I will get them to you. 


Phonics - The children all bought home spellings at the end of last term to practise. This week year 2s have been learning about contraction words.  e.g. haven't have not, I'll I will etc. Have a go at turning the two words into a contraction and contractions back into two words. 

can not, did not, it is, I will, they are, I have, could not, will not, they have, let us

can't, didn't, it's, i'll, they're, I've, couldn't, won't, they've, let's

What other words can you think of? Put contractions words into sentences.

Spellings for next week will be

because, would, should, can't, I'll, they're, can't, couldn't, won't, didn't


Literacy - On Monday I introduced our new topic Polar Regions. The children were going to do some research online to find out about the Arctic and Antarctica and some of the animals that live there. Go on to and get your children to write down three facts about, polar bears and penguins. 


Maths- This week we would have been continuing our work on multiplication. By the end of year 2 the children need to know their 2, 5, and 10 X tables and the division facts to go with them. e.g. 5X2=10, 10÷5=2. 

Have a go at the 2X table maths wheel sheet at the bottom of this document. So multiply the 2 to the numbers around it and write the answers in the outer wheel.

Make your own wheel to practise the 5X table and the 10X table. 


PE - In school the children would have been learning rugby skills so, if you need to warm up, have a go at some throwing and catching and running! If not go on some lovely winter walks and enjoy our local landscape.
