Year 2 Learning from Home
Hi Year 2,
It’s me again! I am missing everyone lots and hope that you are all staying safe and having fun. I am uploading your homework for another week but you will be pleased to read that today is a bank holiday. That means you can have today off homework if you wish.
Please complete what you can. I suggest completing one piece of writing/sound work and one piece of maths/topic work per day. A maximum 30 minutes sitting down to focus on a piece of work. Easier said than done! If you don’t get everything completed, remember that there is always next week. If you feel that you need more homework, please send me an email.
This week marks a new topic called ‘Ready Steady Go’. I have added a topic sheet of the learning objectives for the final 6 weeks of the Summer Term. This week is an introduction into thinking about places in our locality and ways to keep active. There is also a labelling activity on parts of the body. Each part of the body is very important in order to keep active. Without one part working well, things become harder to do.
This week’s challenge is a design challenge. I would love to see your designs – please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Some parents are sending me other completed activities and that is great to see too. Thank you!

Lots of you enjoyed the music making challenge last week. Here are videos of 2 music stars, Alex and Bella, performing with their instruments. Nathan Carter may need new recruits for his band.

Hello Year 2,
I hope you enjoyed a day off from homework last Friday. Please see your activities below for this week's homework. Today marks a new week of our topic 'Flash Bang Boom' and this week the focus is on sound. As always, you need to revise your spellings and tables every day, complete your Friday test and try to do some reading every day.
Thank you to the parents who emailed me with your Boggle word challenge last week. Well done to all the pupils who got placed and received certificates for the number of words they made. You know who you are! But a special mention must go to Seth who smashed the record and made 113 words using 12 letters. Congratulations on your 1st place award! I just love to see your work and photographs each week, it means a lot. Check out the slideshow of photographs from last week. You were all amazing! If you didn't email last week, please try to send a quick email this week.

Hi Year 2,
I hope you and your families are still staying safe during lockdown. Well done to everybody who completed activities last week and a special thank you to mummys and/or daddys who are helping with homework. Please try to remember that you are doing your best and that's all I can ask for. Thank you! This Friday 8th May 2020 is a bank holiday so you can take a day off from homework if you wish.
Please see your activities below for this week. Try to get some reading completed everyday - I can't stress enough the importance of reading little and often. This is week 2 of our Flash Bang Boom topic and the focus is on sources of light.
Thank you to anyone that sent me their Lockdown writing challenge last week. You will see your writing displayed below (scroll down). This week there is a Boggle word challenge. Please send your Boggle challenge to email@example.com. I will count up how many words you can make using the letters provided in the document. There may even be certificates for 1st place through to 5th place. Good luck!
As always, email me if you have any questions or concerns.
Love from Miss Foster x

Year 2 Learning from Home
Dear Year 2,
I hope you and your family are keeping safe at home and spending a little time each week day to complete pages from the home learning pack. I have no doubt that you have been having fun spending time with your family too. Thank you for all your hard work so far, and thank you parents for adjusting to this new routine.
Going by the school diary, the Easter holiday takes place from Thursday 9th April to Friday 17th April 2020. This is a time to take a break from home schooling. Everyone in the house deserves this well earned rest, so you are allowed to put away your home learning packs. If there are still activities left to complete, these can be completed after Easter.
From Monday 20th April 2020, home schooling support will be available on this page. I will keep up-to-date with you every Monday and Wednesday by posting notes and uploading activities. New activities will appear at the top of this page.
A special congratulations to Ollie on the birth of your baby sister Indie. You will be a wonderful big brother. There's no better time to look after her and spoil her.
Enjoy your Easter break everyone.
Miss Foster and Mrs Baird x
Maybe you could boil some eggs and draw funny faces like these guys below...
If pupils are feeling anxious or worried about things, the poem below may help them to understand what is happening right now.
Watch the Easter story - www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PSgoPdKQFQ
Check out the range of twinkl Easter activities on their website. There are 2 eBooks called 'Saving Easter' and 'Brenda's Boring Egg'.
Below are some activities that I thought were most appropriate for Year 2. Happy Easter!
