Dear Year 2 parents,


You have nearly made it - 14 weeks of home school teaching - very well done! Thank you for supporting the school with the continuation of your child’s learning. We truly appreciate it.


This week we are thinking about the long-awaited summer holiday. On the timetable there is a link to many activities suited to your child’s age group via Purple Mash. With the maths and ICT sessions I have placed an assortment of activities so that your child can choose the ones they fancy doing.


The activities on the home learning timetable for week 14 are:



Keep going with that daily exercise, whichever one you and your family enjoy!



This week’s daily reading tasks are on Purple Mash where your child has a daily chapter to read on Ned and the 3 bears with a follow-on task. These are fairly easy reads so most children should be able to read the texts and complete the follow-on activities independently.





The last week of choosing words that your child cannot spell yet on the high frequency list or the common exception list. These are words that yr 2 children should be able to spell within their writing tasks if they are working at the year 2 standard. Extra words are: beach, beech, sea, see, whole, hole, Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer.



This week I have placed a range of activities for your child to choose from.




I have put a selection of activities onto Purple Mash - your child can choose which ones they would like to complete.



Please carry on with your sculpture if you haven’t finished it. If you have, please can you help your child to evaluate how it went. You may also want to squeeze some more art activities into your week using the Tate for kids website: https://www.tate.org.uk/kids/gallery. There are some great ideas there for you to try with your child. I haven’t timetabled it in but please feel free to explore.



Safety on the internet

Thank you for the work that you completed with your child last week re safety. At school we are very aware that your child is using the internet much more than they would ordinarily. At school we remind children before each lesson how to stay safe online. This is even more important now that we are exposing children to different YouTube links. Please help your child to work through the ICT safety activities put on the timetable this week so that they are reminded of the many ways that they can keep themselves safe.


I would like to reiterate, once again, that although I have timetabled the week please swap days and timings around to suit you and your family. Both the PE and the audio stories can be accessed at any time on the YouTube channels as can Purple Mash, Education City and TT Rock stars.


Thank you so much for everything you have done to support your child’s learning. I hope that you have a wonderful summer holiday where you can relax and have some quality family time. Looking forward to catching up with you in September.
