NEW RESOURCES
Here you will find the support resources for each timetabled week of learning. On completion of each week we will add them to the sections below.
LEARNING IDEAS
If you wish to do more learning with your child, here is an additional list of ideas for you to try at home.

Reading – highest priority!

• We have sent reading books and a couple of extra library books home. Children can read these and any other books you can get your hands on! Ask questions about what they have read to check their understanding.
• Complete reading comprehension activities like the examples in this pack.
• Try to include some story time where your child is read aloud to by an adult or an older child.
• Check out Oxford Owl as you can sign up to read e-books for free and these are matched to book bands too.
• Nessy is a wonderful resource to help your child with reading and spelling – this is highly recommended!
Phonics Play

Writing

• Spelling key words is tricky so as much practise as possible please! See the list in the packs. Children can practise writing these in many ways, e.g. making playdough letters, ‘painting’ them outside using water instead of paint, etching them in a sand tray etc.
• Practise forming letters correctly – especially ensuring that the letters are sat on the line, that all the small letters are the same height and that the tall letters are all the same height too, and twice the height of the small letters.
• Complete the enclosed short writing tasks or write for many different purposes, e.g. write a recipe or a letter for a friend, write a story or a poem.

• When writing, Year 2 children need to:
o Spell words using their phonic knowledge and spell key words from the Year 1 list correctly.
o Use capital letters at the start of EVERY sentence and for names.
o Use full stops, exclamation marks, question marks and commas in lists.
o Use adjectives to describe nouns and therefore make their writing much more exciting.
o Extend their sentences using conjunctions, e.g. and, so, but, because, or, if, when, until.
o Read their writing back and edit it to make sure that it includes the above features.

Maths

• Complete the enclosed activities. See the Arithmetic methods to see some ways children have been taught to solve calculations using jottings.
• Help children to mark their work and talk to them about any mistakes they have made.
• Practise Times Tables Rockstars regularly (their username and password is on their Reading Record) – www.ttrockstars.com
• Practise reading the time – o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. Once this is mastered, try reading the time to the nearest 5 minutes.
• Practise using coins to make totals in different ways and try to calculate how much change you could get.
• Get measuring – use rulers, weighing scales and measuring jugs.

Time to be creative

• Try to include some time for drawing, painting, collage, model making, creating music etc. too.

WEBSITES
Websites who are offering free learning resources for the coming weeks.
