Year 2 - working from home


Hello Year 2


Hello everyone,

We hope that you and your families are keeping safe and well. We thought that you might like to hear about some of the things that we have been getting up to during these unusual times.


We have both been in school quite a lot, and amongst other things we have been making sure everything is ready for when lessons start again.

We have been re-reading some of our favourite books. Perhaps you could write about the books that you have been reading, so that we can talk about them when we get back to school. (By the way, for those of you that are working on the Lexia programme, we hope that all is going well here - remember, if there are any problems don't hesitate to contact school and we will be able to help you out.)



We have both tried baking new things - some things have turned out better than others, but everything tasted delicious! Have you been doing any baking?


We have been making the most of spending more time with our families and our pets and have both been going on long walks to help to keep ourselves fit.


These are very strange times aren't they? If you feel you need to get in touch with either of us then please contact school and we will get back to you as soon as we can.


Stay safe

A Special Assembly


Please join us for an assembly where Primary school children across the UK can listen to  Ant & Dec, David Williams and Sally from the NSPCC for a special assembly in partnership with the Department of Education.

The assembly will help children to understand the huge changes in their lives during the coronavirus pandemic and how important it is to speak about our feelings and thoughts - two things we can all safely share together at this time. Please click on the link to the NSPCC website, which is where you will be able to follow the link and watch the assembly:

For those using Lexia, please follow the instructions on the letter to help your child log on. All login details are in your child's reading record. If you cannot find the logins- the username and password are the same and it is the initial of your child's first name then last name. For example, lbeard. 



Look at the fun, exciting things you have been getting up to! (Please email the school website if you would like to share any pictures)

Mrs Credland's Letters and Sounds Group

Below are some activities to practise learning from our spelling lessons.

You will find words to spell with different suffixes and some plurals to write. Why don't you have a go at writing your own sentences using some of the words you have been practising?


Challenge: how many other words can you find with the same suffix?

Keep in touch with your maths learning, by completing the daily activities on the White Rose Learning Pages. 

There will be video lessons published online, with worksheet activities available in each week stars below.

Use this to structure your child's day.
