Welcome to the Class Page for Year 2 2020/21
Hello to our wonderful Year 2 and their families!
If you are currently learning from home, this is where we will add our links and activities each week. They will be closely linked to what we are covering in class but designed to be accessible at home. You don't have to do everything, just enjoying doing what you can together.
Your English homework, Maths homework and spellings will still be posted on Seesaw every Monday afternoon. Below are the links for Numbots and reading at home but you will also find them on Seesaw:
We are currently trialling the use of Read Theory with Year 2, which you can find a link for below:
We hope that this is a useful resource to support your child's reading at home but the texts can be tricky. If you are finding that this is too difficult for your child, please do not feel that you have to continue with it. We are currently in the process of finding a similar resource that is more appropriate for KS1 children.
It would be lovely if you could share your work with us via Seesaw or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can take a look on Twitter @AshKnotty to see what we've been up to in class each week too!
Take care and keep smiling!

Week Beginning 12th October 2020
If you are isolating at home this week, please find your work below:
Our sounds in phonics this week are all split digraphs: a-e, e-e, i-e, o-e, u-e. The split digraph is found in words such as make, toe or true. For a clearer explanation of what this means, there is a parent help link below. The website refers to this as "the magic e" but we have not been using this language in school. Click here for the link.
In Maths, children will be learning about time. They will be learning to tell the time to the hour and half past. The work below is from the Oak Academy which provides lesson videos with work related to this subject. You can upload photos or screenshots of this work to SeeSaw when it is complete.
In History this week, children will be learning about chronology of Kings and Queens. There is a worksheet below with Kings and Queens that need to be cut out and stuck in order - the dates that they ruled are underneath their pictures.
Week Beginning 5th October 2020

This week's phonics sounds are ir, ue, aw, wh and ph. Please find below some links to phonics games and some worksheets related to these sounds. In school, we study one sound per day alongside daily practice of high frequency words. There will be a link to a high frequency word booklet for your child to use but please do not feel that you must complete the full booklet. 2-3 pages per week would be plenty.
In Maths this week, we are learning about numbers to 100. The class work focuses on ordering numbers and using number bonds to 10, 20 and 100. The worksheets below are related to this class work.
In History lessons, children will be studying Kings and Queens. There are some worksheets available for them to continue this study at home. We have also provided helpful links to games and websites that will support your child's e-learning at home.
