A Compassionate Learning Community
Whilst your children are not at school, it would be beneficial for them to continue their learning at home. Practising maths (calculations, times tables etc), writing, spellings and reading daily will keep their learning fresh in their minds and help keep them occupied. Below are suggested activities or websites the children use at school and can continue to use at home.
To contact a member of the Year 2 teaching staff for support with home learning, please email:
***Power Of Reading (and writing)*** - CLPE's 'Take 5' for year 1 and 2.

Reading every day is the best thing that your child can do at home in regards to their learning J
In the pack, there is the Y2 common exception word list. These are words the children should be able to spell by the end of Year 2. They can practise these spellings in a variety of ways:
Rainbow words – Choose a coloured pencil or pen and write the spelling word. Then pick another colour and write over the top. Repeat until you have used seven colours.
Bubble/Graffiti writing – Practise the spelling words by drawing the words in as many different ways as you can.
Put the words into silly sentences.
2, 3, 5 and 10 - there is a game to play in this pack.
