This blog post will act as a learning forum for pupils and parents providing a single point of contact for questions or queries about the work children have been set through the school website.
This is an important year and I would encourage pupils to try and ensure that (unless unwell) they practice a range of skills daily while at home:
Please continue to hear your child read their reading books and discuss the stories with them. Sharing books with your child is important so please read their Bookflix books and any other stories to them each day. (ideally 30 minutes a day)
World Book Online have a fabulous collection of over 3,000 eBooks and audio books available for free for children to access at home. Click here to access the link.
There are several ways to have fun with writing, here are a few ideas:
(ideally writing each day)
- Write about their favourite part of the story which they have read.
- Explore story writing and sentence challenges with Pobble click here
- Spelling shed– practice spellings to help with the year 2 word list.
- Draw your own picture and write a fictional story.
Remember – punctuation, joined handwriting, conjunctions, adjectives and most of all enjoy writing!
The children can practice their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. You could ask the children to read the time throughout the day and use any opportunity to develop various maths skills. Click here to access a range of maths resources that you can practice at home – keep a look out for problems of the day on WhiteRoseMaths. They can also access maths shed.
Keep active, fit and healthy with a range of activities for 30 minutes a day. Joe Wicks is doing a free interactive workout every Monday- Friday morning from 9am on his you tube channel. Or why not try some cosmic yoga.

Talking! As this is such an uncertain time for all of us it is more important than ever to speak with your child as you go about your daily routines to model correct speech and new vocabulary. Commentate on what you are doing at home and encourage them to help out with daily chores and activities such as cleaning, baking, cooking and washing.
I look forward to reading parent and pupil comments about what you have been up to…
