Year 2 Home Learning

Week 1

Reading

The expectation is that you will be reading on a daily basis and that this should still be recorded in your reading record. We look forward to seeing what books you have read.

A Reading Journal of activities is attached for you to complete one each day. You can either print out the activities or use them for inspiration.

You also have KS1 English Comprehension books to work through. During this first week, we would like you to complete one activity each day.

Spelling

Please practise spelling the Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words (everyday words). Remember to check your quiz from Christmas to see which words you still need to practise.

Writing

This week you are going to write a story. Break your story down so that you write the beginning on one day, then the middle on the next day and finally your ending on the next day.

We would like you to log-on to Pobble. This website posts a new image each day to inspire children’s writing.

Find ‘Cinderella – March 15th.

Create a story from this image, focusing on using story language (once upon a time, suddenly, at that moment etc) and descriptive language (adjectives).

Remember:

  • Use the Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words (everyday words) document to spell these correctly in your writing.
  • Edit your work – does it make sense? Have you used capital letters and full stops?

Maths

 

Each day, we would like you to work your way through the KS1 Maths SAT Buster 10-Minute Tests. During this first week, we would like you to complete one activity each day. Mark your work with an adult. Complete any corrections. (Please note that we haven’t covered time and shape yet so your child may need your support with these specific questions).

 Don’t forget that you can use resources to help you if you need to. Some examples might be:

  • Instead of Base 10 materials you could use pasta or bricks – longer pieces to represent a ten and something smaller to represent a one. You can always draw these out to help you answer questions too.
  • Strips or circles of paper to help you to visualise fractions – you could fold them, cut them or shade them.
  • Using real money to help you count totals.
  • Create your own number square as an additional activity if this would help you or find one here.
  • Using an analogue clock to practise reading the time.
  • You could use pieces of cereal to represent multiples of 2, 3, 5 or 10 when calculating your times tables.
  • See if you can find real-life examples of shapes in your house that may help you to answer some questions, e.g. a can for a cylinder, an apple for a sphere.

 Please see the Maths games links on our main Year 2 page for further Maths games that will help support our work on money, time and arithmetic – times tables, number bonds, doubles and halves.

Science

We would like you to revise our work on 'Habitats and the Environment' using these great videos and interactive games on the BBC Bitesize website.

From your online learning, we would like you to:

  • Create a poster about the different habitats that you can find in the world
  • Create a fact file for an animal that lives in one of these habitats (include information about its food chain and how it is adapted (suited) to live in that habitat)
  • Make quizzes for class mates to answer

Twinkl which has lots of examples of fact files which you could print or use as inspiration

Project

Please find details of this here: Nelson Mandela project.

PE and Mindfulness

There are lots of websites and Youtube channels which will give you fun ideas and activities to stay fit and healthy over this period. We have recommended a few below:
