Hello Year 2!
Our current topic Is Paddington but we have also been looking at habitats and different animals. Here are the links to some amazing virtual tours of zoos around the world. You can look around the zoos and there are live cameras in enclosures. How exciting is that?

We have tasked the children with some work on Purple Mash – passwords were in the packs sent home. There is a mixture of maths, SPAG, ICT work and games on there for you to access.
Here are the links to some test-base mental maths questions. At the bottom of this document there are the methods we use which will help you support your child following the school’s policy and how they have already been taught. Please do not teach them other methods as it will confuse them. Use the numbers at the side to go through the questions.
Here are the links to a Reading paper. If you have a printer, then you can print these out. If not then children can write their answers on any scrap paper. Please let the children read the text themselves, but help with explaining the meanings of words they are unsure of.
