Year 2 2019 - 2020

Welcome to Year 2 Covid-19! 

Enjoying school at home


We have put together a timetable for you to try to stick to whilst your are studying at home instead of in school.  This timetable can be found in the workbook that we provided for you to work in whilst you are at home.  It can also be found below in FILES TO DOWNLOAD.  We are well aware that this may be a tricky time and thought that the timetable may help to keep you focussed whilst you are having to spend lots of time away from school. 



For our science lessons we use Tig Tag to watch videos and do practical activities. We now have free access for parents while schools are closed!

Hi guys, 

I hope everyone is okay and having fun at home. 

Thank you to the people who have posted what the children have been doing onto our class twitter page. It has been great to see what they have been doing and I know others have used your ideas. 

Please remember if you have any problems or just fancy a chat email: 


Hi all of year 2, or should I say year 3 now? I hope you have heard the good news about who your year 3 teacher is, I know she is just excited to start the year with you as you must be with her. 

I thought it would be a nice idea to let her know a little bit about yourselves, just so she has a chance to prepare for you lot 😉  I've set out a weeks plan, each day has a new activity for you to do, and you can post your work to the year 3 twitter page or my email and I'll be sure to pass it on. 


Day 1- Draw a picture of yourself. You could be doing something you love, playing football, dancing, fishing or listening to music. 


Day 2- Create a list of questions you might want to ask your new teacher about year 3. She may not be able to answer all of them but I'm sure there will be a few answers on the year 3 website page. 


Day 3- Write a letter to your new teacher. Tell her all about yourselves, why you are excited for year 3 and anything you enjoyed about year 3.  


Day 4- Complete the activity sheet in our files. Just a fun activity letting your teacher see how fun you are.


Day 5- Creat 3 targets you want to set for yourself for next year just so your new teacher will know the areas you want to work on. This could be handwriting, comprehension skills or maths. Also, write down some activities you have never done before that you think you might like to try in year 3-if they're fun, cool, and doable!!! you may get to do them next year. 


Even though I'm sad we didn't get to finish this year I know you will continue to be the clever, funny, amazing class you are and I can't wait to see all you smiling faces again when you're in the juniors! 


We hope everyone stays safe and healthy. 

Mr Redmond and Mrs Sorvel
