Year 2


Weekly Home Learning
Each week I will share key tasks for your child to complete at home that mirror what is taught in Key Worker Provision.
I will include activities to support English and maths as well as creative tasks.
Spellings

Each week I will share a Y2 spelling pattern from the National Curriculum as well as five High Frequency Words that are commonly misspelled. These will be practised every day in Key Worker provision.

Our spelling pattern this week is: The /l/ or /ul/ sound spelled ’-al’ at the end of words. 
  

medal, petal, capital, hospital, animal, equal, final, pedal, local, magical


 
Reading, Reading, Reading!
 
A key aim of the National Curriculum is that all children should be able to read fluently by the end of Year 2.
 
Some children take to reading like a duck to water, others need lots more practise to become fluent.
 
Our school reading scheme is designed to match content closely to your child's stage in their reading journey while exposing them to a broad range of genres. This benefits not only reading fluency but also influences children's progress in writing across the curriculum.
 
All reading is heartily welcome and we encourage any and all reading whether that is the side of the cereal packet at the breakfast table to recipe books and your child's favourite fiction.
 
The more confidently your child can read, the greater will be their progress in all areas of learning.

 
Times Tables

Your child should ideally have memorised their 2, 5 and 10 times tables by the end of Year 2.

Lockdown is a great time to focus on this skill. Here you will find resources your child can use to practise this skill independently, while you work from home.
