Home Learning for Children in Year 2
I miss you all and wish for the time we can all come back together to enjoy learning, working and playing with others.
This is the last half term of updating our website like this, I hope. If you need a bit more help with deciding what to do and when at home, take a look at this: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons
Our new topic is Vehicles.
Look at what is here, but if you are struggling to understand any of it, or some things seem a bit hard (or easy), you can always choose your own ways to learn. It's a great opportunity to go back to things you find difficult, such as telling the time or knowing your number bonds to 20. Read, read and read some more then tell people about your reading! Also make sure you get cooking, gardening, playing, puzzling and helping out around the house. Oh and... continue your diary, if you can!
Look after yourselves,

Welcome to our Year 2 Class!
Year 2 pupils are taught a wide variety of subjects from the New Curriculum.
Throughout the year they are assessed against milestones. Milestone 1 broadly covers Years 1 and 2. By the end of the school year your chid will be either approaching, at or past the milestone with a basic, advancing or deep understanding.
Keystage 1 - Year 2
What subjects do we cover?
English: Writing, Reading and Communication
Mathematics: To know and use numbers, Multiplication and division, fractions, properties of shape,
position, direction and movement, measures, statistics and algebra
Science: working scientifically, biology, chemistry and physics
Art and Design Technology
Personal development and Citizenship
Although there are all these discrete subjects, many are taught through a themed approach in school where subjects are combined.
KS1 SATs Support Materials
Please, read these for further information about KS1 SATs. I have included practice questions in all areas of the English and mathematics curriculum that is tested, but it is entirely your choice whether you look together with your child at these. If your child wishes to bring homework in to show me, I welcome that, but this is not compulsory.
