Year 2 Home Learning – Week Commencing 20th April

Hello Year 2! We hope you have had a good Easter and have managed to enjoy lots of fun and chocolate.  Mrs Norris, Mrs Anstey, Miss Croot and Miss Nice have been missing you all and we hope we can see you again soon.

Here are some activities for you to do at home this week.  We will add more ideas each Friday while we are away from school.

Reading – Reading is the most important thing to keep doing over this time away from school. Try to read a little bit every day and select lots of different texts to read.  This might be books at home or websites about things that interest you.  We have been very fortunate and now have access to Scholastic Reading Library online allowing you to access lots of different books on their website.  We would like you to try hard to login to this at least three times in the week.  We have sent an email of instructions to your grown ups and they can also read about it here.

Writing  – This is Professor Plum have a careful look around all of the picture and tell someone at home what you think is happening.  What might he be thinking? What do you think he is making and why?  Click on the link below the picure then to find the writing activities to do this week. Don’t forget to think carefully about your spelling, capital letters and full stops, conjunctions and amazing adjectives!

Maths – We can see that lots of you are using Times Table Rockstars and Numbots reguarly and some of you have even challenged the teachers.  We have started some more inter class tournaments so let’s see which Year 2 class comes out on top this week. The last winners were class 2AA so 2MN and 2NC need to try extra hard this week.  Keep using these online games to help you with your maths.

This week we would like you to try using these online videos and resources from White Rose.  Listen carefully to the video and then have a go at the activities.  The answers are also there for your grown ups to look at if find something a bit tricky.  These are areas of maths that we have already covered in school quite recently, so you should be able to remember what to do.

Science –

Boat Building

You will need:

  • Washing up bowl or sink to fill with water
  • Sheets of paper of tin foil
  • Paperclips or tape to hold you boat together (if you want).
  • Pennies, marbles, small plastic toys, or anything else waterproof to test out your boat.

Try folding your paper or foil in different ways, which shapes make the best boat? How many objects did your best boat hold? Does paper or foil work better?

Creative – Can you create a home or lair for one of your favourite toys using things at home?  Maybe you could make it with sheets or towels or empty cereal boxes? Think carefully about what they will need at home during lockdown as most of them won’t be able to go out! Maybe you could decorate it to make it look more homely and exciting. Have fun!



Topic –

Visit the new bbc iplayer bitesize daily lessons a few times.

Choose what interests you and record your learning in any way that you like.



And…..don’t forget to stay active. Maybe make up your own dance routine or excercise along with Joe Wicks in the morning!
