Year 2 Home Learning Activities
We hope that these activities will provide a useful starting point for you to commence home learning; however, we will endeavour to continue to source appropriate materials and resources in the form of worksheets, activity booklets, online activities and more practical tasks to ensure that all children are able to access some learning during the school closure. We will continue to be in contact with parents via e-mail and seesaw; so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you require any further support. We would also love to see photos of the learning you have been doing at home!

Maths: So far this year we have covered Number and Place Value, Addition and Subtraction, Money, Multiplication and Division, Fractions and Statistics. Our next topic is Geometry, and we will be learning about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes.
Printable Activities: The Spring Activity Booklet provides opportunities to revise some of these areas, and the Mystery at the Grand Portrait Gallery Investigation asks children to solve maths challenges in order to find clues to eliminate suspects and find out who has been drawing moustaches all over the paintings.
(Updated 25/03/2020 & 31/03/2020 - Additional booklets for specific areas have been added below)
Online Learning: Please visit the ‘Maths Resources’ page of our school website for a wealth of website and app suggestions to help with maths at home. All children have their own logins for Times Table Rockstars and Purple Mash where online activities can be found.
Other Suggestions: Play board games, learn to tell the time, weighing and measuring, making amounts of money etc.
English: Please continue to keep reading at home, even if you do not have banded reading books, any reading is good reading! We have also uploaded some Year 2 SATs Survival Reading Comprehension Revision Mats to support children’s written comprehension skills.
There are some question prompts for creative writing, but much like with the reading, please encourage any form of writing. In class, we would always be focusing on correct use of capital letters, full stops, accurate letter formation, sizing and position of handwriting, and accurate spelling of common exception words when used.
(Updated 31/03/2020 - Y1 & Y2 Common Exception Word Spelling Mat added to resources below which can be used to support spelling when writing, or as a tool to support editing after writing)
Spot Mr. Whoops’ Mistakes is a task which gives children the chance to be the teacher and spot the spelling mistakes in Mr. Whoops’ work.
Science: Home Learning Activity Booklets have been provided for the following areas:
Uses of Everyday Materials (covered in the Autumn Term)
Living Things and Their Habitats (covered in Spring Term 1)
Animals Including Humans (Spring Term 2 – ongoing)
Plants (to be covered in the Summer Term)
Foundation Subjects: Please also encourage your child to enjoy art and craft activities, music, PE and other topic work, including History, Geography and RE. Perhaps they would like to do a project about something that particularly interests them, which could incorporate some of these areas. Also, we would love to hear more about how the children will be celebrating Easter.
