Year 2 Home Learning

Dear Parents,
During this difficult time please keep reading regularly with your child.  Also, share books they can not read independently.  There are links to websites and free resources on the Blog. The children have log in details for My Maths and Mathletics too.

Useful things to keep doing:
Encourage your child to learn to read and spell the common exception words for KS1.
Go through the sounds in the middle of their reading record book focusing on the ones they are less confident with.
Practise handwriting by copying writing from books.  Write stories and write about animals or things that interest them. Make their writing interesting by adding adjectives, conjunctions and a variety of punctuation. Encourage them to use capital letters and full stops in their writing and the correct formation and sizing for their letters. If they have started joining their letters in class allow them to do that to improve their neatness.

Learn the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables and related division calculations.  Then move on to other tables.  Add and subtract 2 digit numbers to 100 and then beyond when they can. We have shown them some strategies.  Let them show you those strategies. We will put maths activities on the Blog regularly.
Please email us if you have any questions about your child’s learning:

Thank you
Year 2 Team
