COVID-19-Home Learning


A pack of work has been made for all year 2 pupils. If you have not received the pack it will be in a box in the main reception and can be picked up from Wednesday 25th of March. Within the pack are activities to cover all areas of learning. Usernames and passwords have also been sent home for Mathletics and Purple Mash. If you have not received these passwords please email me. When you sign into Purple Mash, click on '2DOs' which is in the the top left corner of the home screen-there are several activities that I have set. Please continue to read to your child every day and act out stories whenever you can! Keeping active is important, especially if you are in isolation. You Tube is a great resource. Joe Wicks has several short videos for keeping active and Cosmic kids yoga is another fantastic resource to use to help the children relax.      

Joe Wicks has a live session every weekday at 9:00 on you tube.

The website 'Twinkl' is allowing parents to join for free during these challenging times. On 'Twinkl' there are power points to watch together or sheets to print off. Phonics play is also free and has lovely reading activities.  


Our topic next term is 'seaside'. We would like the children to start finding out about how seaside holidays have changed. The children could interview their grandparents(over the phone) and write what has changed and what has stayed the same. We will be looking at how important it is to take care of the environment. Please can the children carry out some research about recycling and make recycling posters.      



Monday 30th March


Literacy Task

Draw a story map of a book or film you have read or watched. All the children know how to draw a story map. They need 8 to 10 bubbles or circles drawn on a piece of paper. They can then draw the main events in the story and label the pictures. Once they have drawn the story map they can use that to write the story. Remember your capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. 



Maths Task


We have been working on telling the time.  Ask your adult to help you look at the clock in your home throughout the day and tell the time.   



Ask an adult to help you find out about 'Easter' and why it is celebrated.  Make an Easter card for someone you live with.  




If there are any problems, questions or you would like to share any learning activities you have done please email me, 


Take care year 2 . I look forward to seeing what you haver been up to. x


Welcome to Year 2

Our topic is 'Wonderful Wales'.




We celebrated pancake day in year 2 by using our numeracy skills to measure ingredients to make pancakes.  


We used fractions to decorate our pancakes!


Our topic this term is 'Explorers'. We have been finding out about Newport and decided to learn more about the transporter bridge. 


We invited Emma in and asked her questions that we written. 




We really enjoyed going on the gondola and seeing the engine house. We learnt lots of facts about the transporter bridge. We wrote thank you letters to Emma. 



We all dressed up for Commando Joe Day. We found clues around the classroom which revealed a picture of a large box. We then worked in groups to draw and write descriptions about what could in the box! 







We have been using mathematical vocabulary when playing team games.

We were able to make quarter and half turns. Some of us knew our left and right! We had fun giving our friends directions!
