Year 2 – Thursday’s Home Learning

Year 2 – Thursday’s Home Learning

Year 2 Home learning for Thursday 16th July 

Subject focus What we need to learn: How we might learn it:
English  Reading To read a range of genres and texts. 

Have a look at your reading rainbow. Are most of your books fiction (story) or nonfiction (information)? Today you are going to read a new book for the group you are lacking in. 

If you do not have any books at home, you could try an online book from this website:

When you have read it – add the title to your Reading Rainbow. 

Writing To write for different purposes. 

Today we will be writing our last two pages for our End of Year booklet. Today we are going to think of any successes you have achieved both in school and during lock down. 

Think about successes we can celebrate from school such as merits, achievement assemblies, being on gold (with ticks!), learning a new skill in PE – it can be anything!

When you have done that think about life skills you achieved at home. Making a sandwich, making your bed, cooking, gardening etc. 

Decorate one of the rosettes (below) and then write a short description about what the achievement is for. Alternatively draw your own award and write a description. 


Maths To show knowledge of Maths when playing number related activities.

This week’s maths involves showing what you have learnt this year in games. Below you will find an activity to print and play.

After you have played, have a look at the following online activities;

1) Education City – Y2 – Maths – activities

2) Purple Mash – Bond Bubbles


 (or search maths – snow slalom – mathsframe)

Other: Art / Design and Technology. To explore materials and colour. 

Today is the final class based on home learning. To celebrate we would like to award you a ‘Langstone Home Learner’ certificate. You can colour and decorate your certificate. You could even hold your own ‘Achievement Assembly’. 


If you don’t have a printer, draw and decorate your own one.

CH: Can you make a certificate or card for the grown ups who have helped you over the last few weeks. We have seen all the hard work they have been putting in by helping you and they definitely deserve a big ‘Well Done!’ too. 

A quick note from the year 2 teaching team: THANK YOU TO OUR PARENTS

We have seen all the hard work that parents have been putting in over the last couple of months since the schools were partially closed and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your hard work over this time.

Remember to email your child’s class teacher to let them know how you’ve got on. We’d love to see examples of what you’ve been up to.
