I hope everyone is well and remaining calm and positive.
Daily I will update this page with activities that you can complete at home with your Year Two pupil.
I will set tasks according to our usual class timetable to a certain extent, but they will be more exercise activities as children won't be charging around the playground as usual!
I have included a section named 'General Resources' which will remain there for key Year Two facts. The 'Daily Tasks' will then be added underneath.
You are welcome to do additional activities or change activities to suit you, please understand that our usual lesson style and standard will not be possible at this time.
Please take photos and email work produced as I will save it in your pupil's work folder on the school network. I will comment on and feedback where appropriate, obviously your own comments in person and at the time to your child will be beneficial to their learning and progress. You can photograph or email to tell me about fun activities you do too, I will appreciate these as I will miss the many tales I hear daily in class.
If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact me on the class e mail:
Take care and keep smiling.
If you click on the documents below they will open in a new window.
The Maths number bonds resources are key facts and can be practised anytime, we often rehearse these as part of our afternoon register. The hundred square can help to support addition and subtraction. Remember when using the times table mat that in Year Two we should be able to recall any fact from the 2, 5 and 10 times table, then division facts. The next times tables to learn would be 3, 4 and 6, this is a Year Three objective.
Our current class Phonics is at Phase Six level. The document enclosed is lengthy but key spelling patterns are shown in bold if you scan through. Phase 5 spellings are practised within writing all of the time and the graphemes are displayed in the classroom so this document may help support spelling choices at home. Common exception word reading and spelling are rehearsed weekly in starter activities.
Please make use of these resources.

I will insert new weeks at the top of the page as sometimes it takes a while to load at the bottom especially as I have added a gallery! Also It won't seem like you have to scroll too far.
I have added the new week's work a little earlier as I am having internet troubles at home. So if I don't respond please bear with me, Thanks.

Apologies that today's work wasn't on here as early as last week's uploads. I am now back connected to the internet so normal service shall return. Thank you for lots of emails since Friday, if I haven't responded yet I am still getting through them. I hope everybody had a lovely weekend and managed to get back into gear yesterday. I have enjoyed seeing the rainbows around my neighbourhood whilst out for walks and am sure it looks fab near yours too, so thank you for contributing to this. An advanced warning: as next week would have been the school Easter break there will be no work set. I'm sure for some this may be a welcome break. So work you socks off this week for a well earned rest!

Happy April!!!! I have set no work today because I think we should all have a day off.... APRIL FOOL! Sorry I tricked you. I hope you all have a good day.
Thursday 2nd April 2020
A few people are finding it hard to keep up with daily tasks, this is no problem, please do as much as you can and do not worry if not all is completed. Remember also that there will be no work set over the course of what would have been the Easter break so you do have the option to split work and save some till then. Thanks for maintaining your brilliant efforts.
Today's tasks see below.
Monday 23rd March 2020
So... Here is our first day. The first document outlines the 5 set tasks. The following documents support the tasks as they are numbered in the first document (when you open it that will make more sense). I do welcome feedback on tasks but ask you to appreciate that this is not how I usually teach, I try to make lessons fun and interactive in school so please jazz up anything I have given you. Remember you can email any work to email@example.com
I will get back to you when possible.
Tuesday 24th March 2020
Thank you for the AMAZING work and HUGE amount of contact I have had over email. It makes me so happy that you are all trying your very best. As I have said to some parents already, I will ensure that the next day's work is available from the late afternoon/early evening so that it gives time to read, process, download and hopefully I can answer any questions relating to queries. Thank you all hugely.
Wednesday 25rd March 2020
Our Wednesday is a little bit different as we do Big Maths and don't do phonics. Well done if you are managing to keep up. Missing you all Class Two! Keep up your great work.
Thursday 26th March 2020

I can't believe we have made it to the end of the first week already. I hope you have all settled into schooling from home and had some fun in the March time sun too. Thank you again for the brilliant work that I have seen and the emails I have recieved. I have inserted a gallery of some of the fantastic work you have been doing. I will do the same again next week. I know that Mr Moorhouse is continuing to put things on Twitter so I will send some to him too but atleast having a gallery here keeps it all in one place.

Thank you for the updates this week. In school Jesse completed Joe Wicks in full Man U strip with lots of enthusiasm, Ashley wowed some of the Year Six teachers with her awesome writing, Dylan did an excellent diary and Jack and Harriet helped to make a bright and cheery rainbow for the school window.
At home William has made me so happy by doing his own assembly to his teddies! Bless Zeynep for her daily itinerary which is jam packed! Also for drawing so many clocks so accurately and Evan’s mum for drawing the ones she couldn’t print out. Evan has impressed with his fabulous fitness course. Finlay has been enjoying furthering his knowledge about Christopher Columbus which is brilliant to hear and Belle has been a busy bee completing all her school work and her own home learning tasks too. Bella has impressed me with her neat handwriting and huge amount of exercise, as has Ava who is doing so much exercise that I get tired reading the emails! Ava is keeping a fabulous diary also with exclamation sentences, as is Betsy, Caelan has been enjoying his artwork like Alice has with her Kandisky painting. Dana has been keeping up with reading too, especially using the IXL books and Rhys has been a star in his Big Maths. Jack has been completing excellent maths all week and is even learning to hoover in his spare time! I’m sure the rest of the class are super busy too.
I'm so proud of you all this week, I hope you're not enjoying it so much that you don't want to come back to school, as I miss our class very much! Keep up your super learning Class Two!
