Good morning Year 2s! Thank you for sending in all your fabulous work yesterday, it was great to hear from so many of you! Your work for today is on Dojo under Class stories. Please get in touch if you need us and send your work through, we love to see it!
Have a lovely day 🙂
Good morning Year 2s! I hope you are all keeping safe and enjoying the work we are setting for you? Thank you for what you have sent in so far via email and Dojo, we are loving seeing what you have been up to!
Here is the home learning for today. The PowerPoint contains all the lessons and activities that you will be learning today. If you have any problems please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will do what we can to help.
Have a lovely day 🙂
Hello Yr 2. We are starting to get used to the website again and it has been lovely to see so many of you sending in your work through Dojo. We have also printed off paper packs which are at the Junior site if you prefer to use them.
Literacy. Take a look at the mind map below and read it carefully. You might need a bit of help with some words. Can you predict which animal we are learning about this term. No cheating from older siblings! Make a prediction and share it with us.
Maths-This is from Nrich and is an open ended problem with many possible answers. Please share your ideas with us.
Happy New Year to you all. Work will start to go on for you today, but it might take a bit of time to get back into using the website and transferring all our planned activities. As always we would love to hear from you on the Yr 2 Email or Dojo. We will be carrying on with multiplication and division in Maths and will become Explorers for topic so we promise it will be an exciting half term.
This term we will be learning about famous Arctic Explorers. Today we would like you to have a think about where you would like to explore if you could go anywhere and explain why. You could take a look at an atlas or world map to give you ideas. Please write it down and share it with us on Dojo or by Email. Can you use ’because’ in a sentence? Can you explain what attracts you to a certain place? We look forward to hearing your ideas.

Hi to all the Year 2s. We hope that you have had a lovely week’s break for half term. There has been lots of lovely sunny weather for you all to enjoy outside.
Here are the activities for the first week of this half term. The Literacy is a poetry pack with lots of different activities that can cover a fortnight but you choose how/when to use it. We have printed some packs out and they can be picked up from the Junior Site after 3 today.
HAPPY HALF TERM! We’d just like to say a massive thank you to you all, for emailing your lovely photos and videos of both work and what you have been up to in your free time! We have loved seeing you (virtually), reading your emails and hearing about your adventures. We think you have all done an amazing job, have a good rest and see you back online on the 1st of June.
Hello, what a superb week we are having with the warm weather. Here is a link to some outside activities from The Woodland Trust. They have lots more on their website. https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/blog/2020/04/nature-activities-for-kids-to-do-at-home-part-4/
Good Morning, we have enjoyed seeing your work. Lots of brilliant stories and science. We have given you an extra idea here of ‘seaside in a bottle’ – you could do it without the sand.
Good Morning. Some of you might have seen it is mental health awareness week and Mrs Richardson has put together some brilliant resources which you might find useful. The focus is kindness. https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52557800
Also we have heard some of you are enjoying Carol Vorderman’s free Maths lessons https://www.themathsfactor.com/
However you choose to spend your day, we do insist that if possible, you get outside and enjoy the warm weather. It has a huge impact on your well- being. Stay safe, be alert and have lots of fun!
Hello Yr 2. What superb weather we have had this weekend! It looks like it will stay sunny this week too. Here is this weeks activities but as always you know they are optional and we are always here on the end of an email if you have any questions. Here is a link to making a miniature book which we tried yesterday and a version by Axel Scheffler. You might recognise his name from some of your favourite books. https://www.bl.uk/childrens-books/activities/make-a-miniature-book
Happy Friday, it is nearly the weekend and we have printed new booklets for you that can be collected from the junior site. They are just inside the doorway so there is no need to have contact with anyone. Don’t worry if they run out as we will be printing more next week.
Next week you will be writing your own story based on Fantastic Mr Fox so you could be thinking what you will call your main character and who they are trying to outsmart?
We have also uploaded some egg experiments as an extra. The bouncing egg looks fun.
Hello Yr 2, it has been good to hear that many of you are getting to spend longer outdoors. We hope its another sunny one but if you get stuck for ideas we wanted to remind you about word art. You can create all sorts of images with words and send them to us or your family by email etc. https://wordart.com/create
Good Morning, what a beautiful day it was yesterday, we hope it’s another today. Here is an optional non-fiction reading comprehension about foxes. There is three different levels of comprehension and the answers are also there to self assess. We have also put up the link to Space Hangman which the children love but you do need Flash. You could play it on paper or make your own word search if you can’t play it online..
Good Morning Yr 2. Lets hope it is a sunny one and you can enjoy some outdoor fun. This weeks work is all on Monday so just scroll back and pick it up and use as it suits you. We will continue to put up bits and pieces each day and we are always an email away.
Here is a little of something extra incase you need a challenge. There are lots more on https://nrich.maths.org to keep you busy, just make sure you look at the age rating for the activity/investigation you choose and they usually have guidance and solutions on the left hand side incase you need them.
Watch the video below all the way through.
What do you see?
Play it again. You could pause it while you’re watching, if you like. And you might like to watch it again more than once.
Describe what you notice.
Each time the counters are moved, what is the same? What is different?
Imagine you are making a similar video but with twelve counters.
What would it look like?
We would love to see your ideas – you could make a video, or you could take photos, or you could draw pictures, or…
Week 11th May
Hello Yr 2, we hope you have had a lovely long weekend, and had chance to soak up some sunshine before a very much colder Sunday! We will continue to put up the weeks learning on a Monday. Do get in touch, we are always here and love to hear from you. We are pleased to share the free log in for all of Phonics Play that doesn’t use Flash.
Thursday 7th May 2020
Computing – If you used the Bee Bot app yesterday and gave them instructions to move you could now go onto trying this challenge of creating your own coding game:
Jacqui has made a couple of videos for you to watch and try.
If you make a bookmark or do the keepie uppie challenge remember to take a picture to send to us.
As it is VE Day tomorrow, here are a few extra fun activities:
Wednesday 6th May
Remember the B-Bots that we use in school? There is a picture of one below.
We have to clear their memory each time and programme them with a series of instructions to move in different directions and then off they go.
Use the direction cards to see if you can programme yourself to follow a series of instructions. You could also try doing this with a toy of some kind. You could also use the B-Bot picture below or create your own that you can move.
Can you make up some of your own instruction cards to try out on someone?
There is a Bee-Bot app (TTS Group) which you can download. You can then give the Bee-bots instructions online.
Tuesday 5th May
Hello Year 2s. We hope that you have got some time outside in between the showers. All the main work for this week is on yesterday’s post but here is an extra maths problem that you could work on too:
Good morning Year 2s. We hope that you have all had a good weekend. This week’s activities are below. Also look out for some extra daily challenges. Let us know how you get on.
Good morning Yr 2. Happy first of May! Some of you have asked about getting Espresso at home and we are pleased to say we now have a log in. We need to give it to you through email though so please just let us know if you would like the details. The children know the site very well.
Hello Yr 2. Thanks for keeping in touch and letting us know what you have been doing this week. We continue to be impressed through hearing about your achievements from learning to ride your bike, baking, gardening and your home learning. Please continue to share them by email. Today we have added some optional maths activities/games from White Rose. The pastoral section also has some new activities/information on so do take a look.
Good morning Yr 2, the weather was a bit wet yesterday but hopefully you managed to dodge the rain and get some fresh air. We have added this time capsule as an optional activity today. You don’t have to create one using the booklet, as you could make your own with an empty jar or bottle.
Well done for sending us all the different work you have been doing. You have been busy doing various activities including learning to tell the time, creating your mini cinemas and finding out about foxes.
If you want something additional to do please take a look at https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons There are some amazing lessons and challenges on there!
Good morning Yr 2. We hope you have had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed the warm weather. We will continue to put the weeks learning up on a Monday for you to access/use in a way that suits your circumstances. We have loved speaking to you all last week and please do get in touch with any queries.
We all love Oliver Jeffers and he is reading lots of his books on the link below-enjoy!
SUMMER TERM WEEK 1 BEGINNING 20TH APRIL.
Friday 24th April
Hello Year 2s. Well done for all the work you have been doing. We have enjoyed looking at what you have sent in to us. All this week’s work is on here below this post. Here’s an extra challenge for today:
Welcome back to all the Year 2 children. We hope you have had a good Easter and had a break from all the home learning you have been doing. This week we are going to trial posting the whole week’s work on the Monday. So, for example, a maths file goes up and in it there are 5 sessions for the week. These can then be done at whatever point suits you best e.g. one session a day or 2/3 at a time. Also, if you miss a day then it is easy to see what would have come in the session before.
Each day we will still send you a daily post including a small additional activity. We will also be reading and replying to your emails every day.
Thursday 23rd April
Good morning Year 2s. It’s been great to speak to some more of you on the phone. We are really impressed by all the work and different activities that you have been doing.
If you would like some more ideas, have a look under the Pastoral section of the home learning on the website.
All the weekly activities are posted below but if you would like a little extra to do then how about joining in (you could even add some actions) with this You Tube counting video:
Wednesday 22nd April
Hi Year 2s. Thank you for all the work that you have already sent in this week. If you look below on this page there are all the activities for this week. Also here is a little extra maths for today if you want to give it a go:
Tuesday 21st April
Hello Year 2s. Hope you are enjoying starting work on this week’s activities. All of these are below this post. We have already heard that some of you have started work on Fantastic Mr Fox and are brushing up on your time telling skills. It was lovely to get the chance to hear how some of you are getting on when we gave you a ring yesterday and we’re looking forward to getting in touch with the rest of you over this week.
If you would like a little extra to do here is a little challenge:
03.04.20 Friday– Happy holiday Yr 2, we are very pleased with how much you have achieved this past couple of weeks. It is time to take a break. We have put together some ideas for you, if you would like to use them. There are also resources on the pastoral part of the website for you to use. Well done, lots of you have registered for Oxford Owl and are accessing free books. We are waving goodbye to Sunny, Africa and safari and will start our new topic after Easter (April 20th). Make sure you remember his motto though… ‘Stay safe, stay together and watch out for jackals!’
02.04.20 Thursday – Hello Yr 2. Today is the last day of term before the Easter holiday. Over the break you will not get any typical learning online but we will put up some fun activities. Also, if you want some structure, you can go back over the last 2 weeks on here to see if you have missed anything. Please join Oxford Owl who are offering free online books so reading should still be done regularly. For today you might have some work to finish, so the art is optional. We have added the CE spelling list for Yr 2 too as this can be used in many ways such as bingo, handwriting and editing. For literacy look back to yesterday as the lesson can cover two days. You have more measuring in maths and a recap in phonics. Have a good day everyone.
01.04.20 – Good Morning Yr2. Here is todays work, don’t forget it’s April Fools Day! We would usually be doing PE today so I have included some outdoor activities but you can do other exercise instead.
And another brilliant safari in a box- we like the meerkat on lookout-Keep them coming!
Tuesday 31.03.20. Good morning Yr 2. Here are some activities for today. You may have plenty to get on with already but if you want something extra you could do the safari in a shoebox as it looks fun.
Monday 30th March- Hello Year 2s. We hope you have had a good weekend. There is a PowerPoint here today with the days activities on. Hopefully you can access it at home but if not let us know on the Yr2 email. There is some of our usual lessons and an art activity to go over the week. Have fun!
Friday 27th March – Hello Year 2s. We hope you have been enjoying this week of lovely weather. It could get a bit chilly at the weekend so best to get out there today! A few activities for today below then more to follow next week.
Thursday 26th March – Good morning Year 2s. It looks like it is another lovely day so I hope you get plenty of chances to get outside. Here’s also a few other home learning activities. Some maths (following on from yesterday) and a story writing activity to start off with. Have a look at the outdoor exploration activity and see what you can find.
Wednesday 25th March – Hello Year 2s! Hope you have all been getting a chance to enjoy this lovely weather. Some subtraction for maths and then a phonics recap from yesterday coming up today. Also carry on with the good work on your Home Learning Packs.
Tuesday 24th March – Good morning to all our Year 2 children. Here are your learning activities for today.
