Home Learning Packs

 

In light of recent events, we have prepared a list of useful links for your child(ren) to use should you be self isolating. Please see the Coronavirus page or the parents page for the list of links.

 

If you are in need of a pack or have any questions please see your child's class teacher or the school office. 

 

The links below will guide you to each task and worksheet that is included in the Home Learning Pack. Children will also be provided with Maths and Reading workbooks.

Summer 2, Week 5 29.06.2020

 

Hi everyone! I am missing you all so much. I was really hoping to make it back to school for the Transition Day in July, so I could have seen some of you, however I've been advised by the Government and by my Cardiologist (that's the special name for a heart doctor) to continue to stay at home to keep myself safe. I hope you have all had a lovely week and have managed to enjoy the sunshine! We have decided to change the layout of the work on the website this week, and hopefully it will be easier for you to follow. Speak to you all next week! laugh

Summer 2, Week 4 22.06.2020

 

Hello boys and girls laugh. This week, we have decided to slightly streamline the work you get from now until the end of the school year. That means, there will only be three English tasks, three wider curriculum tasks (usually Geography, History or Science) and four Maths tasks - you no longer need to do the challenge, but it will still be available on the White Rose Website if you would like to have a go. I hope you have all had a lovely week. 

Maths Tasks, Summer 2, Week 4 22.06.2020

 

This week's maths tasks will finish off multiplication with the 10 x table, then move onto division by looking at sharing and grouping. I won't be uploading the challenge to our class page any more, but you can still find it on the White Rose Website, if you want to have a go. This week, I'd like you to complete the activities for SUMMER TERM, WEEK 6, w/c 1st June.

Maths Tasks, Summer 2, Week 3 15.06.2020

 

This week's White Rose Hub learning focuses on multiplication - the 2 x table and the 5 x table. Hopefully, you have been practising, so this should be easy peasy for you wink. The worksheets are no longer available on the website. You will still need to head to the White Rose website to watch the lesson videos, but when you have done that, come back to this page and you will find the worksheets you need here. I would like you to complete the activities in SUMMER TERM, WEEK 5, w/c 18/05/2020.

Summer 2, Week 2 08.06.2020

 

Hello again, Year 2! I hope you have all had a good week. I don't know how there is any more rain left in the sky to fall with the amount we've had! Hopefully the sunshine will come back out this week. Just a quick note - the White Rose Hub maths activity worksheets are no longer available online - you can still watch the videos on the website, but you will need to use our class page (this one!) to access the worksheets from now on smiley. They'll be uploaded every Monday, as usual! Have a lovely week! laugh

Carry on with the White Rose Hub Home Learning for Maths. The tasks this week will focus on addition and subtraction facts. Please start with Summer Term, Week 4 (w/c 11th May) and begin with the lesson on adding and subtracting tens.

Summer 2, Week 1 01.06.2020

 

Welcome Back!

 

At this point in the year, I should be welcoming you back to your final term in Year 2, and it makes me really sad that I am not. The final part of the Summer Term is always my favourite, because I really get to see how much you have all matured and grown since September, and it always fills me with so much pride. The sun is usually shining at this point in the year and we always get to have so much fun. I just hope that when we do come back to school, we can all remember the happy times we did have, between September and March. I hope you all had a wonderful half term and managed to make so many lovely memories with your families in the beautiful weather we have had. This week, as well as your usual activities, I have added a fun little task called the Flat Teacher. Read the newsletter for more information and for instructions about how to use it - remember to use your scissors carefully when you cut her out, with an adult watching you. Speak to you next week! Miss Young laugh

Maths Tasks, Summer 2, Week 1 01.06.2020

Carry on with the White Rose Hub Home Learning for Maths. The tasks this week will take another look at number facts. Please start with Summer Term, Week 3 (w/c 4th May) and begin with the lesson on fact families addition and subtraction bonds to 20. Please click on the link below to access the website.

Flat Teacher

 

This week, I've added something a little bit different. Follow the instructions in the newsletter, cut out your flat teacher and don't forget to tweet your pictures @foresthallps! I can't wait to see them! laugh

Below is a list of words the children are expected to be able to read and spell, by the end of Year 2. They are called 'Common Exception Words', because they don't necessarily follow a particular spelling pattern. If you want to do any extra spelling practise, use these words as a starting point! I have also attached the Year 1 list, just incase you want to recap. 
By the end of Year 2, children are expected to be secure in their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. They should know them in order and out of order, and should be able to answer a times table question very speedily. They should also know the corresponding division facts, for example, if 5 x 2 = 10, then 10 ÷ 5 = 2, or 10 ÷ 2 = 5. Once children are secure in this, they can then move onto learning their 3 x table if they wish. Children in Year 2 should not start learning their 3 x table until they are completely secure in their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. The Maths Chase website is a brilliant tool you can use to help your children with their times tables. The children are familiar with it and they enjoy using it to try and beat the chaser!

World Book Day 2020

 

We have great fun on World Book Day in Year 2. We loved coming in to school in our pyjamas and we shared our favourite stories with each other.

#Who'sBehindTheMask


We have really enjoyed learning a little bit about Jamaica this half term. To finish our topic, we made some Jamaican carnival masks. Lots of us in Year 2 have been enjoying The Masked Singer on ITV, so we wanted to see if you could guess who we were! Can you guess #Who'sBehindTheMask?

Healthy Eating in DT

 

As part of our DT topic, we made some healthy fruit smoothies. We are learning about Mary Seacole in History. She is from Jamaica, so we used fruit that is found and grown in Jamaica to make our smoothies. Some of them looked like sick, but we really enjoyed them! laugh

Art & DT

 

In Art, we have been making habitats. We planned what our design would look like and then we used our plan to make our habitat. We went into the Wildlife Garden and collected lots of leaves and twigs to use on our habitat, and we had a lot of conkers! Have a look at some of our designs below.

​​​​​​Rising Sun

 

We have been learning all about minibeasts and different habitats. We went on a trip to the Rising Sun Country Park, where we took part in lots of different activities. We did a pond dip, where we found lots of different creatures that live in a pond, we did some environmentall art and then we did a minibeat hunt. It was very muddy, but it was very fun!

Maths in Year 2

 

We have been learning all about Place Value in Maths. We have used lots of different bits of equipment to represent different numbers and number sentences, which has really helped us with our learning. 

Welcome to Year 2

 

In Year 2, we have been learning all about Place Value in Maths and we have been doing lots of work around The Day the Crayons Came Home in our writing, which we have really enjoyed. We were really lucky, because we got to go to a Multi Skills Festival with lots of other schools, which was a lot of fun. You can have a look at the photographs on the PE page. We have been in to the wildlife garden looking for minibeats and habitats, which has been really muddy! We found lots though and we were really brave picking them up - Miss Young was not so brave!
