Home Learning Year 2

Welcome back to the second half of summer term. We hope that you are all continuing to stay safe and well at home.


Below you will find a series of learning resources to continue to support your child with their learning at home. We are continuing to use Talk for Writing as the basis for our English work  along with a Twinkl Share a Story Pack. For Maths, we are now  moving to White Rose home learning. These resources should provide the children with an hour of learning for each subject each day. There are also some additional resources for for English and Maths further down the page if the children wish to do extra work along with a link for Get Set 4 P.E to help the children to stay active.


If you find that the work set is too easy/difficult, please feel free to access the resources from the year group below or above. You may wish to print off the resources and complete them if you have a printer available at home. If not, all children were sent home with an exercise book that they may use to record in.

English (w.b.29th June and w.b. 6th July)

We have now provided the link to the fourthTalk for Writing Booklet. This should provide English work for a two week period, including some Reading activities and plenty of Writing activities. Please note that the school has already made a donation to  the new charity of the NSPCC so that you do not need to do so. We have also uploaded another Share a Story Packs from Twinkl. This is a pack which has a series of cross curricular activities all centred around a key text, which is the starting point for the unit. The ideas for learning and activities are all included as part of the pack. In addition to this children can develop their reading using the Oxford Owl online books and Phonics Play.

Story Pack for Year 2 

Maths (w.b.6th July)

For this half term, we are  using the White Rose Maths home learning resources. Every week there are five lessons. Please use the link provided to access a video for each lesson which explains the learning concepts and models examples. There is then a worksheet which has been uploaded for the children to complete, which includes a mixture of calculations, problem solving and reasoning tasks. Answers have also been uploaded.


This week, for year two, when you open the link, please scroll down and select Summer Term - Week 4 (w/c 11th May) NOT the work that is stated on their website for this week. The lessons for this week focus on adding and subtracting tens, adding and subtracting two digit numbers and number bonds to 100. There is also a Friday challenge.

Online Recorder Lessons 


Dear Parents 

Your child was having a Recorder lesson in school once a week. To keep them going I have created a short film that they can watch and join in with.  All you need to do is click on the link below and the lesson will appear. Before you start watching get the instrument ready, ask your child to play a few notes and you are ready to go!  There will be another film next week and you can use the films more than once – in fact, the more the better. 


If you do not have a recorder at home, don't worry because you can still sing along and practise the rhythms!
