Year 2 JF
Welcome to Year 2JF!
We have settled in to our busy timetable in Year 2 and have enjoyed exploring the creative curriculum. Take a look at what we have been up to...
School Closure Activities
Following the government announcement of school closures from Friday we have prepared a home learning pack containing school closure activities for you and your children. Inside our year 2 pack you will find a range of activities from across the curriculum. These are broken down as follows:
*A homework book - the grid in the cover of this book contains a range of activities linked to all areas of the curriculum. The book can be used to evidence the lovely writing, baking and modelling you and your children complete. This can be in the form of art work, writing or pictures.
*A maths curriculum overview for Year 2 - This outlines the generic coverage of key areas of maths that would be taught in the term ahead. Where possible this includes links to Youtube to explain how to complete each mathematical strategy. Where practical equipment is needed to support your child use household objects like toys, buttons, crayons etc.
*Reading books - Your child has been supplied with a reading book linked to their newest accelerated reading score. Please allow your child to read this and quiz online using their log in card (supplied). Oxford Owl and Twinkl have lots of free reading activities which can be downloaded at your leisure to support your child's reading development.
*Handwriting books - Children have been supplied with have a handwriting book. For those children without a joined handwriting scheme sheet please use the printed scheme in the front of the book to develop their fine motor control and letter formation. The common exception words can also be copied in these books to practice spellings. These can be found below. Please practice both the Yr 1 and 2 words.
*Times Tables Rockstars - A login card has been supplied for TTRockstars. This can be accessed on their website on most devices. Your child should be able to recall the 2,5 and 10 times tables by the end of Year 2. Please encourage them to use this as a way of learning their tables.
As current guidance does not outline specific timescales for school closure please continue to check this page for further updates with curriculum links and ideas. We wish all of our families and children well at this time.

Year 2 Homework Grid
We are enjoying our lively PE curriculum with our coach Mr Gibson. This week we developed our ball skills using hockey sticks. We learnt to control and move the ball and then used this skill to guide the ball through a range of goals. We finished our session with a game of hockey!
