We hope you have all had a fantastic half-term and were able to do lots of interesting activities. It’s hard to believe that this is your final half -term in Year 2. Where has the time gone? Although it is sad that you’re not in school, try and remember all the fun things we have all done together during this school academic year.
Remember, even though some restrictions have been slightly changed we must continue to keep our distance and keep hand washing.
Next weeks’ learning
Next week you will be learning about statistics. An interesting unit of work as we see statistics all the time on the news, especially at the moment and it’s part of everyday life. We hope you enjoy it. Click on the link below to access the work and resources you will need.
‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ is the focus for next week’s English, a classic story that has been retold and rewritten many times over. You’ve probably got at least one version of the story at home. Click on the link below to access the work.

Below is a link to use to learn how to do coding. This is part of your ICT learning, it should be fun and will give you an insight into computer programming. Coding is a creative process that people, called ‘Programmers’, perform to tell a computer how to do a task. At its basic level, it involves writing computer programs using programming languages. … In short, coding for children is typically gamified making it fun for children to learn! I’ve had a go at a few of them and they’re quite fun, each one builds on the next so make sure you do them in order. They will also help you to develop your mouse and keyboard skills too!
Have a go. Click on the appropriate age group and work through them in order;
Probably my favourite animal, just adorable! Maybe you’ve seen one in the garden, maybe not, but we can do our bit to help these wonderful animals (they eat the slugs and snails that eat your garden plants so they’re super useful!). Remember, you must not feed them bread and milk, this is very bad for them. Have a look at this website and see what you can learn about hedgehogs.
We hope you’ve been doing the work we’ve set you. The last work we set should take you a couple of weeks.
Please remember to do your Mathletics, we are checking your progress every couple of days. Some of you have been doing it regularly-well done! Some of you haven’t done any yet, please have a go…they are fun activities that will benefit your learning. Your log in details should be on the inside cover of your blue reading books.
Here’s some other Maths for you to work on. It’s capacity, use this as a revision of what we did a few weeks ago.
As well as the work we have set you, please also be creative….get out into the garden/park (if possible), dig, build, listen watch the world around you. Spring is really here now and the plants and animals are blooming.
Here’s a book about COVID-19, it will explain a little more for you. I wonder if you’ll recognise the illustrator…Axel Sheffler…what other books has he illustrated?
