Year Two Home Learning

Hello everyone. Just a quick update. I have sent a new weekly email on Parentmail and added lots of new Maths, English and foundation subjects activities on the learning platforms for you starting this week 5. Please keep using the link to White Rose Maths just below on this page. I have also uploaded some new activities on SeeSaw and Purple Mash I hope you are all safe and enjoying time with your families.

Weekly Update 29.6.20

Hello Everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend. On Wednesday,  I have arranged our class zoom meeting to take place at 2:00 pm and this week I thought we could play a riddle guessing game!  Please keep the details from the original Parentmail invitation as you will need these each time. This is an excellent chance to see our friends and have a little catchup. I hope to see lots of your smiling faces then. I am in school this week working alongside the lovely Year One children so I may be a little quieter on Facebook and accessing my emails. 

  This week we will begin our new story begins called Grandad's Secret Giant and we will continue to investigate food chains, healthy diets and explore animals from local habitats. There continues to be work on maps and human and physical features of the local area.  I have posted a weekly activity plan below for you to use alongside additional activities over on Seesaw and Purple Mash.  Practical ideas and online learning links will be shared using our Class Two at The Brow Facebook page. I hope you all have a good week, I look forward to seeing your work over on Seesaw and Purplemash soon. 


You have been given your paper learning pack and there are also many links on this page to websites and online learning portals where there are plenty of free games and activities you can complete. We will post messages and updates on here and our class Facebook page.

In Summer 2 our learning challenge BIG question is: 

Why do plants and animals need each other? 

 We will be very busy on Seesaw investigating to find out the answer!

Our core text is Grandad's Secret Giant written by David Litchfield.   And if you are enjoying our class text, here are some other good books you may wish to read.

Our Year Two Learning Journey

Learning Overview Documents

Reading Books

The children will be able to change reading books every Monday and Thursday. The children will change their own books and are responsible for getting them out of their bags first thing in the morning. We would ask that you read together daily. Grown ups should sign the reading record every time the children read. The children receive praise points for daily reading. Please ensure you bring book bags in to school each day. There  will be a special raffle at the end of term to win a book for the biggest bookworm in Class 2! Reading is so important across the school so please read with your child!


The children will be given weekly spellings every Monday. These will be linked to our phonics work that week.  Please help your child to learn spellings each night ready for our spelling challenge on Thursday. 

Each half term the children will be sent a homework menu linked to our learning for the half term.We ask that the children choose an activity to complete from the grid each week. Homework books are sent home on Wednesday and should be returned to class on Monday please. 

Monitor roles

Every morning we choose a greeter of the day to welcome the children into our room with a high five or a hug.

Our star of the day looks after the lunch and class register. Our bagel monitor is responsible for returning the bagel box to the kitchen each morning.

Everybody in Class Two undertakes a monitor role and we will work together to keep our classroom a beautiful place to learn. 

Classroom Routines

We follow our school and class rules every day

Be Safe

Be Kind

Be Respectful

The children will earn rewards for demonstrating positive behaviour, positive attitudes towards learning and working towards our school rules

Every day Mrs Cottam and Mrs Creswell look out for children who are excellent role models to go up on our class shout out board. We collect praise points and pads throughout the day and every half term we are presented with a certificate and badge for our efforts. . 

The children will receive praise points for individual behaviours and class points for whole class efforts. When 20 class points have been awarded the children will choose their class reward. If excellent work or achievement has been demonstrated the children may get to visit Mrs Webb and show her their work. In addition, they may get chosen for Mrs Webb's hot chocolate morning or show their work in celebration assembly.The children are encouraged to drink regularly throughout the day. They may wish to bring in a labelled drinks bottle that can be filled with water. 

PE and Forest Schools

This half term the children will be dancing and performing gymnastic sequences for our PE sessions each week. Please ensure they have full (named) PE kit in school every day.

Indoor PE: White t-shirt, navy shorts, black pumps.

Outdoor PE: White t-shirt, navy jogging bottoms, school hoodie and trainers. 

Forest School will be every Thursday morning. The children will need warm, waterproof clothes, coats and wellington boots.

Class Bear

In class we have our very own class bear to look after.  He needs lots of help and he is always looking to see who is being a good friend. Freddie will be sent home with a different child each Friday. Our bear will travel with his diary for you to write and draw in so you can share any adventures you have together. His bag has everything you need for a fun week together.  Please remember to return him to school the following week.
