Year 2 Reading
As part of the children’s ongoing home learning, children are still encouraged to read at home 5 times a week over different days to work towards collecting their reading stickers and lucky dips. This can be recorded in the reading record books.
As part of our daily active learning we are using BBC Supermovers to help the children with their learning.
These are great fun videos the children can join in and learn the songs and dances to whilst reinforcing the key skills and objectives for the lesson. Below is the link to the Supermovers homepage so you can explore and try some at home.
Maths Home Learning Ideas
We feel it is important that your child continues to reinforce what they have learnt during their Maths lessons in school regularly at home. Below is a list of activities that your child would benefit from carrying out on a regular basis:
- Reading and writing numbers to 100 in numbers and words
- Counting in 1s, 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s.
- 2s, 5s, 10s times tables
- Recalling pairs of numbers (number bonds) that add up to make 10 and 20
- Recognising and naming a range of 2D and 3D shapes
- Measuring items and reading scales using a range of measuring apparatus (rulers, kitchen scales, bathroom scales, tape measures, measuring jugs, etc)
- Telling the time to o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to
- Making amounts with coins.
Year 2 Spelling
Throughout the year we will be working in class on learning to read and spell the Year 1 and 2 Common Exception Words as these are important for the children to spell within their independent writing. As the year progresses we will also be looking at the Year 2 spelling rules. We will send home the words that we have been working on at the end of each half term for you to reinforce at home.
Please find below the electronic version of the year 1 and 2 high frequency and common exception words for your reference should you wish to do additional learning at home.
