Coronavirus Home Learning

Read our school closure learning plan here. This explains how we will set home learning tasks, how you can share them with your child’s teacher and how you can get in touch with the staff.

The Government has set up an online academy with daily lessons delivered by teachers and activities to follow up with. Click here to access the lessons for each year group.

BBC Bitesize have also started providing daily lessons and activities for the children. Click here to access these lessons.

Click here for some ideas for you to do indoors as a family. If you get through all of those activities, try these. Most importantly have fun and enjoy your time together.

Y2 Home learning: 8th June 2020

Please click  here for the weekly plan.

The worksheets for White Rose Maths are here. 

Read Write Inc are doing daily phonics lessons for children at home. They are really good! The videos are posted every day at It would be great if you could keep your children ticking over with their phonics whilst they are at home so please click here. 

The large majority of children know their Set 2 sounds so I would suggest that they do Set 3 Speed Sounds and Word Time at 10.30 am, followed by the spelling lesson at 10:45.  Don’t worry if you miss a lesson. Once each complete set has been shown, they will replay one sound a day per set. They could also do ‘Reading Longer Words’ and ‘Reading Red Words’.

We really would love to see what you’re up to at home. Please upload any photos of work that you’ve been doing and adventures you have been having on our Class Dojo page.

We hope you are all well and continuing to follow the advice set out by the Government on social distancing. Please remember that playing with friends outside or at your house is not advised and could put you and your family at risk.

We are not setting home learning over the Easter break but we have put together some activities to keep the children entertained for the next two weeks. It is not an expectation that you do them, just a bit of fun.

Home Learning Week 2

This week we are going to keep things simple. Please continue to access the White Rose Maths resources online as these really are very good as well as the other links below. Oxford Owl have added loads more ebooks for children to read and there are also some phonics lessons on there for children to access.

The children have all been enjoying ‘The Boy Who Grew Dragons’ and ‘The Boy Who lived with Dragons’, so this week I’d like the children to imagine that they have found a dragon fruit…

What does their dragon look like?

What are its specials powers?

What sort of adventures do they go on with their dragon?

The children can draw a picture of their dragon, write a story or a diary about what they get up to with their dragon.

Most importantly, have fun with it and let their imaginations run wild!

Jump Start Jonny!

The lovely Jump Start Jonny has added free workouts for the children to take part in. The children LOVE doing this in the classroom and would be a great opportunity to dance around the kitchen or living room! Have fun!
