Year 2 Home Learning


Good morning everyone,

A big thank you to all of our parents/carers and lovely children for all of your hard work last week! We appreciate it can be challenging to work and manage learning at home and we have been really impressed with how children have found time around their adults busy day to continue their learning. There are three more days of home learning so please keep up the amazing work and we will ensure we share this with the classes when we are back. We will be available for support via phone or email (year1/

How to Create Your First Google Classroom - EdTechTeam

If you have not already make sure you log on to Google Classroom this week. It is nice for the children to look at each others work and have some connection whilst at home. If you are having difficulties email with 'Google Classroom' in the subject heading. If you are finding it difficult to manage around work you could just take a quick picture on your phone and upload at a later stage. 


Click here for this week's home learning timetable. You can chose to follow it, or dip in and out as it suits you. Each day there will be a Maths, Literacy, PE, Topic and wellness session.

Literacy | Petersburn Primary School, LCSC & nursery
We loved reading your diary entries last week. This would be great to continue with remember to; use the past tense, use adjectives for details, use words to show the passing of time and don't forget those capital letters and full stops! We will share these on our literacy lessons on Thursday and Friday. 
We have links to other Great Fire of London writing activities this week. Look at the timetable to see what you could do! 

Please use the sound mat below to support your child with sounding out and spellings:
Here are your spellings for this week: 

Word Math Clipart

Please continue to practise the 2, 5 and 10 times tables daily and work on number bonds to 100 and 20.
You can use Timetable Rockstars. Timestable have always been an important part of home learning and children are expected to practice these regularly. This is an easy and fun way to do this! On Tuesday we will have a new battle between 9am and 3pm to see which class can collect the most points. Make sure you log in and join the battle! 

This week we are learning about money, there are some videos on the timetable to support your child's learning at home. If you are finding this is a little tricky you could start with looking closely at the coins in your purse, sorting the coins and looking at ways you could use coins to pay for an item e.g. If a teddy is 6p which coins could you use? How many different ways can you make 6p? Can you record this as an addition number sentence? 

Super Science | Whitestone Infant School

This week we are revising our work on Materials. Have a look at our timetable to see your activity!
You could watch this video to support your learning:
Explorify is a great website that is free to sign up to. There are lots of interesting activities and videos available. Sign up here:

Final FS2 Phonics Workshop

It is really important that you start your day with a phonics session. Follow the links below for your video of the day! 

Hall, Patti - 1st Grade / Reading

We cannot stress enough how important reading with your child each day is. We understand that with home learning, trying to fit everything in will be a challenging task in itself. Please can we ask that you prioritise reading every day, even if its just for 10 minutes. You can use Oxford Owl Ebooks for this. The link will be emailed in your password document. 

Hilldene Library are also offering a click and collect service if you need any reading books. 

We thank you for all your support and look forward to going back to class on Thursday. We look forward to seeing the children's work and thank you all again for your efforts in this difficult time. If you have any questions or concerns please do email and we will be happy to help. 

Many Thanks,
The Year Two Team
