This is the last set of home learning we will be sending for you.

Please complete as many of these activities as you wish. As always, we would encourage you to make sure there is a balance between home learning and family time during these exceptional times.

This week we are consolidating our learning and thinking about your time in year two.

  • Complete the sandcastle crossword. Look carefully at the clues that go across and down. Remember to use some of the letters you fill in to help you guess the other clues.
  • Fill out the A-Z of the year. Think about all the lovely, fun things we did in Year 2 at school before we went into lockdown. You might remember the activities and workshops we participated in, some of the topics we were learning about, funny moments that happened in class, sports activities you enjoyed, things your teachers have done, friends and things you did in the playground….. the list is so long! eg. A is for….. acting as a king in the Christmas play, B for bandaging patients with Florence Nightingale.
  • Complete the ‘What I loved this year’ sheet with all the lovely things you have enjoyed and are special in your memories of Year 2. Decorate colourfully the sheet to keep for future years.

  • History – Learn about a new significant person from the past. Look on the BBC bitesize website https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zf49q6f

Choose one of the famous people from the list that we haven’t learned about in school so far. Make an informational poster about the person.

Why are they significant? How do we remember them? What important things did they do in their lives? When were they alive?

  • PE with Joe Wicks 9am. Although he is now only live streaming on Mondays and Wednesdays you don’t have to do them on these days! 

Search YouTube for the body coach tv (no subscription needed)

 Or 

Set up your own fitness circuit. Do 10 star jumps, 10 seconds of running on the spot, 10 bunny jumps etc…. or how many can you do in 30 seconds? 

Play some games outside in your garden or the park. Go on a walk or bike ride to keep active. 

Ongoing Activities 

  • Make a cartoon strip for your newspaper or a joke page.
  • Continue having a go at some online maths:

Lots of maths and READING resources including games and activities.

There will be no Zoom calls this week as you will have all been in to school. We are looking forward to seeing you all in person.

Above all continue to have fun, stay safe and let us know what you have been getting up to.
