*****New paper packs of the set Home Learning will be available to collect from the front of the school office from Monday 22nd February******
Dear Parents & Carers,
I have uploaded a second pack of learning below that will take us to 12th March 2021. These are also available to collect as a paper copy.
The paper copies are important as they also provide two CGP learning booklets for each child: one maths and one English. Some of our learning will come from these booklets. All resources are in a named envelope and will be available outside school from Monday 22nd February between 9am and 12pm.
I have included a daily English, maths, and topic/ other curriculum area tasks. In the booklet I have also included an example of a timetable you may want to use and Year 2 curriculum information.
I have also put together a list of useful websites that your children can use at home, these are games that we often use in class. Please click on the free links as we do not subscribe to play, and ensure children are supervised when using the internet.
Please continue to read at home each day, and remember children are constantly learning. I have attached a list of further activities children could try at the back of the home learning pack, as well as the links on this page.
We will be also be using 'Class Dojo' which is a fun, school based communication platform that teachers, children, and families can use every day to share learning. The simple app can be downloaded onto a smartphone or used through a web browser.
I will be uploading short videos, links and messages each day to support the learning and you can send me photos of learning that children complete each day via the app.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any guidance.
Take care and stay safe,

Home Learning Pack 1st June 2020
Dear Parents & Carers,
I have put together a list of useful websites that your children can use at home. These include games we play in class, and use in our IT lessons, as well as websites for extra ideas and resources. All links are free, either for all or after setting up a free user.
Every child recieved a Home Learning pack last week. Please encourage them to work through, completing a maths and English task each day. Nobody expects you to teach the full curriculum to your children, just ensure they keep practising and exploring skills we have been learning together. We do not want anyone to feel stressed or pressured in these uncertain times so keep it fun and do what you can each day.
I will keep this page updated with relevant resources and links. Please continue to read at home each day, and remember children are constantly learning. I have written down some simple ideas below of things that you and your children can do without the need for any resources.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further guidance.
National Children's Day Challenge
Sunday 17th May is National Children’s Day and this year the theme is ‘Small Steps, Big Learning’. This means thinking about the small steps they could take to help make happier families, stronger communities and a healthier and more connected planet.
I would like Year 2 to keep a journal/ list of all of the things that make them happy over the next week. It could be little things, such as your favourite lunch, or something someone at home says to you. It could be seeing a rainbow in someone’s window, or hearing the birds sing in the trees on their daily walk. Write down all of the things, big or small, that make you happy, maybe even draw a picture to go with it! Add to the list whenever you think of something.
Keep this list somewhere special. It could help you remember the happy things or you could use it to help you cheer someone up in your house when they are feeling a little bit down. Together we can use little things to make a big difference and remember all of the wonderful things around us!
You do not have to share this task with me, but if you did want to share your happiness list with me then, as always, please feel free to email me:

Learning from Home
Due to the announcement that schools will be closed until further notice, please find resources below to help your children continue their learning from home.
Learning should include daily reading, maths activities and writing activities, as well as a range of cross-curricular and topic learning. However, children have activities they could carry out themselves (without any resources) such as:
- Practising their number bonds to 10, 20 and 100.
- Writing out their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables (they could make a poster)
- Perfect perfection (copying out their favourite book to practise their handwriting).
- Watching Newsround and writing about one of the news stories.
- Reading a book and asking/ answering questions.
- Writing an alternative ending for your favourite book.
- Helping with the shopping and working out how much everything costs.
- Cook or bake something very simple together and write up the recipe / instructions.
- If you have any seeds plant something and keep a diary on it / do a daily drawing to track the growth. Otherwise, if you have any plants inside/outside (including herbs) keep a diary about how you can care for it over the coming weeks and the growth you see.
- Keep a diary and write a recount about each day (just a short description of the day).
