Thursday 26th March
Hello year 2-How are you all? I have sent you all a message on our school seesaw so use your password and log on so you can send me some messages.
Lots of you will be working your way through your work packs now. Remember the key to success with home learning is 'little and often'
I will keep updating this year 2 page with further work that you can do. I will also put this work on the seesaw app. Remember to practise your spellings and handwriting everyday and to use all of the things we have learnt in class to help you with your Maths and English work.
I will be posting more work shortly so keep an eye on the seesaw app and website.
See you all soon

We were doing shape in class before we closed and you were all fantastic at counting the sides and vertices. Can you now try learning the names and properties of 3D shapes. Have a look at the following resources and complete them in your home learning books. Message me on seesaw if you have any questions or problems.
Friday 3rd April
Well done to those of you who have accessed seesaw and completed lots of online learning. If you haven't don't worry- your log in details are in the pack that was provided to you.
After the Easter break I will be posting more activities for children to complete. We will be finishing off our shape learning with 3D shapes and then moving onto money.
I would like to wish you all a Happy Easter and hope you're staying safe and well.

Home learning week beginning 29th June...
Dear Parents and Carers I hope you are all keeping well. Here is this week's work to keep you all busy for those that need it. I am going to ask for children to carry on with the Rivers and Rosa Parks tasks set last week as they could potentially take longer to do.
For Maths please complete Maths No Problem workbook pages 177-179 which involves solving word problems related to length. Pupils could even have a try at measuring objects around the house with rulers or tape measures (whatever is available). Pupils should be able to compare lengths and say which length is longer/shorter.
For English activities for week 6 of the English Mastery booklet https://www.englishmastery.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Pupil_English_Year-2-Workbook-WK6-8-V2.pdf Please feel free to go back and complete any weeks that you have yet to complete.
For Science children can pick a living plant or animal and produce a habitat fact file sheet.
Children's art week runs from 29th June- 19th July so I will post several links to Art and Craft ideas that can be done with the children indoors and outdoors.
I will post extra Maths and English activities for those pupils that require it. Please remember the oxford owl website has a wide range of free e-books for pupils to access and read. Pupils can also practice the year 1,2 and 3 common exception words. Please do not hesitate to email me on email@example.com if there are any problems. I hope everyone is safe and well. The last two weeks work will focus on transition and getting the children ready for their return to school into Year 3. Stay safe and keep smiling from Mrs Woods xxx
