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!

Week Beginning: 18/5/2020 

Hi guys, 

I hope everyone is okay and having fun at home. 

Well done to the people who have completed their writing challenges and sent them to me. They are all amazing. I am trying to reply to each letter I have received via email so please keep an eye out for it. I will leave the writing challenge up there for another week so you will have a chance to finish it. 

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: 


I would not expect the children to complete the entire worksheet in one day. After reading the entire text, answer 1 or 2 pages. Repeat this again the next day ensuring the children read the whole text. If children struggle with their speed then reading and answering one page a day is fine. 


We are focusin on multiplication and division this week. There are some multiplication worksheets focusing on work with coins. I recommend looking at the answer sheet first as there are some ideas for further questions you can ask.   

One page a day is recommended. There are some examples and answers lower down the page. 

In the invstigation page it would be good for the children to be able to verbally explain what they see to another party. 

There are also plenty of free and child friendly apps, which are interactive and fun. These are great for the children to use and learn from. 

These are some examples you can find: 

-Number pieces 

-3D shapes 




This week I thought it would be good to have a writing competition. The children must write a letter to me explaining what they have done during lockdown. You can tweet or email me the work. This may encourage the children to do some writing as I now writing has been difficult for them. 


I have uploaded a 30 day art challenge for the children to do. You can email or tweet me the work they do however please don't feel like this is something you have to do. I thought it would be nice to give the children a nice task to keep them positive and upbeat. 


We hope everyone stays safe and healthy. 

Mr Redmond and Mrs Sorvel
