Please check on V School and children's reading records for any new home learning or links to online learning. It is very important that children continue their learning at home by practising skills that they are learning in school. 

Please send children's work to the following email address 

A member of the Year 2 team will reply. We will be checking this address at least once a week. 

Thank you so much to parents who have sent emails in. Children love to share achievements with their class.

 home learning expectations


It is so important that you read a little every day. 


This half term children should be accessing:-

 Spelling Shed


TT Rockstars


Children practise using these games in school and need to practise at least 3 times a week at home. This is so important for building fluency in their spelling and number skills. 


 Please make sure that a grown up signs your reading record so that you can get Dojos!

Remember this could be:

Reading comprehension - extra tasks

There are some 60 second reads - reading comprehensions  - in the shared folder and some children will be receiving paper copies of these as well.  Others will take home their RWI book to read. 

Maths - review your learning

In the Maths file at the bottom of this page there are some Parent booklets for the units that we have been learning in Year 2.  Some Year 1 work books are in here as well as the Year 2 workbooks.

Please also continue to practise counting in 2s, 5s, 10s and practise your 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

It is also REALLY IMPORTANT to practise adding 2 small numbers together and practising your number bonds to 10 and 20. You could also practise number bonds to 100

Continue to log onto Numbots, TT ROCKSTARS and 1 MINUTE MATHS to help with your fluency in Maths - your speed in answering questions will help you all the way through school.

spelling and writing

Spelling Shed  - this will have on it words that you need to be able to spell correctly by the end of Year 2. It is great for your  confidence if you know these words and can spell them so please practise and enjoy the games.

RWInc Spellings - You will have spellings stuck in your book that are given and tested each Friday. These are linked to the sounds that you are learning and the book you are reading.

Speaking and listening

Ask your child about the trip to Clitheroe Castle and their learning in school and remind them to speak in full sentences and can they use the word "because" , "so", "but" in their sentence?

Remember to be very clear when you give instructions.
