Home Learning - Week 2

W/C 18th January 


This week the planning has many pre-recorded lessons from recommended sources as well as some created by the Year 2 staff. We hope you find these useful.  


If you are at home to access the learning, please comment on the blog daily before 10.30am as this forms as your registration for the day. 


Each day I have requested a piece of work to be submitted the the Purple Mash Work folder. This is in a red font. Please put a photograph of this task in the Week 3 folder. If I do not see this work, one of the Year 2 team will contact you to see how you are getting on as it is an expectation that we feedback on the learning. 


I have added some additional tasks to Purple Mash for those children that request further work. There will be a variety of Maths and English and topic each day. These are NON compulsory. I apologise as some of you had some difficulties accessing these last week. 


If you are at home learning, one of our Year 2 team will call you once per week from an unknown number.


Stay safe, 


Mrs Harper and the Year 2 team.

Our celebrations and Achievements  

Following the parentmail, here are the Phonics resources.


Here are some resources should you wish to further support your child with finding the special  friends in words. We are recapping Set 2 and Set 3 sounds following RWI.

Online stories - Daily stories are vital to support a child's development. We love audio books so we can drift into an imaginative land. Enjoy using the link below. 





You have your logins for Purple Mash and Education City (in your homework books) which you can use as you require. There are a range of subjects that can be explored and learning enhanced or consolidated with. Sometimes I will set 2Dos and Cities for your homework task.


Purple Mash - We will establish a new blog in September. 



Education City - lots of games and activities to use




If you would like to access further learning, you can do this via Oak National Academy. 

Some lessons will have links to this school, alternatively you could watch the videos if you are unsure of the learning concept. 



Leader In Me


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 and Well being 


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. There is a story and activity below that can be used to support children that are worried and suffer anxiety as a result of Covid-19.
