Week commencing 20th April

Hello Year 2!  We hope you have had a lovely Easter, and managed to get outside a little bit for some fresh air and exercise.  We hope that you are managing to get some work done at home, it is really important to still be doing bits of learning so that when school opens again you haven’t forgotten everything!

Here are some activities for this week:

Times Tables

Purple Mash

  • We will continue to put extra activities on Purple Mash for you to complete each week.
    Your username and password were in the first pack we sent out.

 Oak National Academy

  • The government have released a new online learning website where you can access daily lessons.  We would like you to work through the lessons provided for Week 1 on the website if you can - click here to see the lessons

Descriptive Writing

  • We would also love you to have a go at writing some descriptive sentences.  We don’t want you to lose all your skills in writing so it is important you continue to practise.  The BBC have provided free lessons online you can access.  Have a go at these lessons this week where you can practise your descriptive writing - click here to see the lessons



As a response to school closures, National Literacy Trust have developed a comprehensive web portal for parents, to support you during this time.  Over the next days, weeks and months they will be updating this as often as they can with new and useful content for parents.

Split up by age group below, you will find ideas and guidance for simple activities that will engage your children at home, while also benefiting their reading, writing and language development.

You'll be able to access free reading and writing resources, audiobooks, videos, competitions and reading challenges.  Every resource is available for free, although to access some you may need to create a free account.

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.

Reading comprehension 1
