The link below will take you to the White Rose Maths home learning webpage. Here you will find daily lessons comprising of a video with accompanying activities and answers. It is important to watch the video and pause at appropriate moments in order to attempt the questions.

We would like Year 2 to start at lesson 1 of week 1 (not week 1 of the Summer Term as the preceding two weeks are necessary as a foundation for what follows).

Maths home learning for Year 2 is here


The link below is a unit of English work for the next fortnight. This includes both reading and writing activities. If you can, the booklet could be printed out but this is not necessary to complete the activities. However, it will be necessary to use a laptop, tablet or smart phone for part of the session in order to read texts, instructions and activities.

The following is a suggested timetable for completing the English unit over the two week period.

Reading and Phonics

Here is a link which we feel will really support your child with their reading. You will see that some of these books are Read Write Inc Home Readers and others are books that the children would read in our daily Phonic lessons. We advise that you read the books with your child that match the colour band which they already bring home. It is required that you sign up to create an account, however this is free. Happy reading!

The following links will help provide access to ebooks, storytimes with authors, phonics activities and and support with teaching sounds.
