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.

A message from Miss Young


Hello Year 2!


I hope you are all well and managing to keep yourselves busy, and hopefully you are keeping yourselves safe by staying inside when you can (you're allowed in the garden, if you have one smiley). I am really missing all of your happy, smiling faces. I know some of you will be starting to get bored (I am too!), so I've give you a few more worksheets and tasks to be getting on with. I hope you're managing to make your way through the learning packs and the workbooks I gave you, but remember - you don't have to do it all at once! Take your time with it. Go in the garden, search for minibeasts, make some rainbows to put in your windows, read your favourite story to your grown up, or even better - have a go at writing a story! It can be about anything you want! If you don't fancy doing that, here are some extra worksheets to keep you all busy for the next week. smiley


Maths - I haven't set you much maths, because you have your workbooks. There is an activity about 2D shapes, which we had just started to learn about. I have also given you some times tables sheets and a worksheet about place value to 100. Hope you have fun doing these.


English - as with maths, I haven't given you much extra English, because you have your workbooks. There are some handwriting sheets though, because I know how much you all love to join your letters, and you were getting so good at it, so keep up the practise! There is also a little spelling sheet and a writing activity.


Other - I've tried to keep this as fun as I can! There are some science sheets, focusing on habitats, food chains, recycling and minibeats and I have also added some nice Easter crafts for you to be getting on with.


I hope to see you all VERY soon. In the meantime though, remember to keep washing your hands and as hard as it is, stay in your house to keep yourselves safe. Take care, boys and girls laugh

There is also a free, interactive learning pack available for Year 2 from Twinkl. Please follow the link below to access it. Use the offer code UKTWINKLHELPS to set up your free account. 
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.

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!
