Welcome To Year 2
*NEW MATHS WORK*
White Rose Maths, the scheme we follow in class, has produced some home learning packs. They include a video introduction plus an activity. The first week begins just where we finished in class, with fractions.
*NEW PURPLE MASH ACTIVITIES*
I have set some online activites to be done via Purple Mash. Remember, these can be found if you click on the 2Dos icon.
TRY A SCAVENGER HUNT! Here are some ideas for indoor or outdoor scavenger hunts.
Here are some resources that can be used to support your child with learning at home:
All children have access to the Lexia reading programme. A letter was sent home recently with your child's login details.
https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/ This website has a variety of reading books available to read online for free. To make searching for a book easier, I have set up a class login. To access this, go to the website and at the top of the page, click on the My Class Login button which looks like this . The username is stjyear2 and the password is year2. Alternatively, you can register as a parent. The parents' section also has ideas for supporting your child and links to maths games.
Comprehension The Twinkl website is currently free to access and has some reading skills powerpoints to work through.
SPELLING AND GRAMMAR
https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/member-only/InteractiveResources.htm This site has a variety of games and has also opened up free access for all. You can log in by entering the username march20 and the password home. Phase 5 and Phase 6 are the most useful for Year 2.

fractions; time; data; measure. As well as practising what we have learned in class, it would be helpful to introduce your child to these areas through the website.
Khanacademy.org You can sign up for free to this website for free learning videos, activities and quizzes on different maths concepts. It is an American site so is divided into "grades" but try the early maths or 3rd grade parts of the site.

All pupils were sent home with their login details for the Purple Mash site. They are familiar with using this site for Computing at school but I have also shown them some different maths, drawing and spelling activities that can be done on there. I will be setting the children some activities through the function, which they have used before.
I will continue to update this page with different activities.
Spring Term 2020!
Our topic for this term will be "Significant people and events from the history". We will be learning about the Great Fire of London and Florence Nightingale.
Please see our Spring Term Newsletter for more information.
Homework will continue to be given out on Fridays and is due in by the following Thursday. It will consist of spellings to learn plus one other piece of Maths or English work
This term our PE lesson will be on Thursdays. We will be doing gymnastics so children will just need their shorts and T-shirt. Please could all earrings be removed before school if your child is not able to take them out themselves.
