Year 2

Home Learning Week 2

I hope week 1 was enjoyable and you are adjusting to the new routines. I was in school last week and really enjoyed watching and taking part in the Joe Wicks PE Sessions at 9am live every morning on YouTube. If you can tune in, it is great fun!

Day One of my 9am daily workouts

Below is this weeks Home Learning Timetable for week 2. Everyday there will be some reading, phonics, spelling and maths fluency - like we did in school along with an English and Maths task. Also, I have included some other subject related activities. This week there is PSHE and Music! 


I hope you all have a wonderful week and most importantly a wonderful Easter break! There will be no home learning set over Easter, other than have fun and eat chocolate (for breakfast one day if you are allowed!) 


Take care and stay safe!

Today was 'Safer Internet Day' so we have learnt how to keep our identity safe by keeping our personal details private. 


This term Year 2 have lots of adventures planned to help us answer the essential question: 

Where could an adventure take you?

Over the next 12 weeks, we will discover facts and information about a range of explorers including; Christopher Columbus, Captain Cook, Robert Falcon Scott and the local adventurer Ross Edgely.

We had a great day pretending to be Christopher Columbus on our workshop day. We dressed up and acted out his life. We all agreed he was guilty for the bad decisions he made. 

We are learning about Captain Cook and his adventure to Australia. In Australia, the Aboriginal people create art using earth colours. We are mixing colours to make symbols and patterns. Did you know the aboriginal people don't write? Here are our first draft attempts at colours and designs.  

Aboriginal Art

 We have completed our second draft paintings using Aboriginal techniques. Using earth colours we have made patterns using Pointillism to make the background and the image stand out. We used lots of model examples to help us.

Diary writing is becoming a strength of ours. Using the book Deep Sea Diary, we have learned what a diary needs to have in order to share information with others. Here are some of our first attempts, using the Talk for Writing boxing up strategies to help. We are proud of these and are looking forward to writing more!

Termly Information of coverage and proposed timeline



On a daily basis, the children try to demonstrate our core values within school. As we aim to practise them so often, they become good habits that we can use not only in school but also at home too. 


  • Habit 1: Be Proactive (You’re in Charge)
  • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood(Listen Before You Talk)
  • Habit 6: Synergise (Together Is Better)
  • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)


Growth Mindset


We are continuing to use Growth Mindset to encourage resilience and perseverance for all our children to support and further their learning. Our Collective Worship this term will support this by focussing on mental wellbeing, healthy life-style and positive relationships which links our seventh value of Sharpen the Saw. Further information can be found by following the link below.
