Year 2 – Home Learning – Summer – Week 2

Dear parents,

I hope you and your families are safe and well and are enjoying the time you have together and the wonderful weather we have been blessed with.

Below you will find the Home Learning grid for the week beginning 27 April. As always, there are a number of lessons for children to work through that includes daily numeracy, literacy, reading and an afternoon task that may include science, topic or R.E. In addition, there are also activities for times table rock stars and coding. Remember, you can send work into me and I can post on our Twitter account.

Lastly, please don’t worry or stress about the work that has been handed out – simply do what you can and what your child feels comfortable with. The most important thing during this time, as always, is the safety and well-being of your family.

Mr Owen

I have attached the book below but please don’t read the full book in one sitting as the activities are linked to certain parts of the book and are there to get your child to think and wonder about what is happening.
