Please remember that every child who can safely be cared for at home should be. If we do not act responsibly and only send children if necessary, schools that are open may be overwhelmed. Please be responsible and only make use of this provision if absolutely necessary.

Thank you.

Welcome to Class 2

Class 2 Home Learning

Class 2 Summer Term 2020

I have put together some initial ideas for children to work on at home. Children will, of course, need some support from parents in order to be able to access home learning materials online, print off materials and complete recommended activities. 

As the school closure is likely to be lengthy, it is important for children to complete as many of the activities as they can if they are not to fall behind. Although it probably seems a daunting task, I would ask that you do as much as you possibly can in order to support your children with their home learning. I understand though that this might not seem easy so if you have any questions or problems, please do get in touch via email.

It will probably be most useful for your child if you try to keep to some sort of routine. In the mornings, I would recommend a spelling activity, followed by some Maths and some English. In the afternoons, I would focus on activities linked to our topic. 

Please dedicate 10 minutes or so each day to hearing your child read, asking questions about the story / information, the vocabulary, the characters, how they are feeling and why they have acted in a certain way. For ideas on questions to ask, please see the Reading Vipers key skills documents for KS1 and KS2.

You might also want to make use of the brilliant idea from Joe Wicks and incorporate his daily PE lesson on You Tube into your day.

If you would like to share any work your child has achieved, please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will display it in in the home learning gallery on the schools website.

Spellings 

I have included planned spelling lists for Year 2 and for Year 3 for the whole summer term. The children know many strategies for learning spellings and spelling games. Ask them about “Quick Write” and “Rainbow Write”. Don’t forget that Year 3 children need to keep practising putting words into sentences and writing definitions. Year 2 children are used to dictation on Thursdays where I put some of their words into sentences and dictate them to the children. Why not have a spelling test every Friday with a reward for full marks?

For extra practice, children could make use of the following website, https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/ which has a number of interactive activities and games, and is free for children to use at home during the Coronavirus epidemic. Children should focus on Phase 5 and Phase 6.

Maths 

I will endeavour to add more targeted Maths activities as the term goes on but initially, children should have a go at the home learning packs on the Twinkl website which is offering a free month’s subscription. (See below) Alternatively, I have saved the packs for Year 2 and Year 3 and they are available on the school website in the Class 2 section. Children should select the appropriate packs for their year group, but as they will be working without a teacher, it may be more appropriate for some children to focus on consolidation and practice of skills already learned by looking at the preceding year group pack. Likewise, there may be some children who complete their year group pack quickly and would like the challenge of having a go at the pack for the next year group up.

Times Tables

Don’t forget to encourage the children to practise their times tables. Once again, you could give a test on a Friday. The quicker children can recall each times table in a random order, the better.  Children progress through the times tables in the following order. Don’t forget to keep revising those already achieved to maintain rapid recall.

  1. 2 x table
  1. 10 x table
  1. 5 x table
  1. 3 x table
  1. 4 x table
  1. 8 x table
  1. 6 x table
  1. 7 x table
  1. 9 x table
  1. 11 x table
  1. 12 x table

English 

As for Maths, please access the Twinkl home learning materials for the relevant year group.

Perhaps the children could keep a diary of their time at home using and consolidating all the writing skills they have learned at school – accurate punctuation and grammar, descriptive vocabulary, use of joining words and varied sentence starters and so on – whilst practising their neatest joined handwriting. 

Topic

The Class 2 context for learning for the Summer Term is Rainforests. As general research, the children could look at the following websites.

http://www.twinkl.co.uk

http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/rainforest.html

http://www.theschoolrun.com/homework-help/rainforest-habitats 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zb2jmp3 

http://www.rainforest-alliance.org/kids 

I will add specific activities for each subject area at the beginning of the term, but it is worth noting that our Science topic will be linked to plants and growing. Any practical gardening activities that you can do with your children will be useful, such as planting seeds, watering, nurturing and observing growth.
