Hello and welcome to Year 2's class page!

To assist you with your child's education you will find here a range of resources you can access to support you and your child.

Maths

Your child will have been given a 'home learning pack' that contains three different types of of maths booklet: Learn Its, CLIC and SAFE.  These booklets will help to develop key arithmetic and core mathematics skills.  Begin at the lowest level and work through each booklet.  There will be ten pages with the same key skills being developed.

In our main maths lessons for the remainder of the spring and summer terms we would have been focusing on Fractions and Time.  Your child will have previously been sent home a 'Mathletics' user name and password.  This can be used to access activites and tasks that will help to support their understanding of these topics:  https://login.mathletics.com/

                        

Clich here to access a free resource for parents with video and worksheets for fractions.

English

Handwriting

In your child's home learning pack you will find a copy of a handwriting booklet and a list of 'common exception words' for KS1.  A very useful activity to practice both handwriting and key spelling is to spend a short time everyday practicing handwriting skills by copying each word.

Reading

Spending time everyday reading with and reading to your child is the best way to develop their reading skills and a love or reading.  Your child will have brought home a book at the appropriate level or stage suitable to them.  Accessing titles of books that are of interest to them and within their range can be done by utilising the Accelerated Reader Book Finder website: https://www.arbookfind.co.uk/default.aspx

Pupils can now access Accelerated Reader at home to complete any quizzes.  Click on the icon below to go to the login page:
