Week beginning 11th February 2019



This week in English we will design and write animal information posters to link to our shoe box habitats. We will research information on the computers and use non-fiction books to find out the facts we want to include.

In Maths we will look at patterns we can make with 2D shapes as well as looking at properties of 3D shapes. We will try to describe faces, edges, surfaces and vertices. Of course we will be doing lots of Science as it is SCIENCE WEEK. We will look at floating and sinking including a challenge to make a foil boat that can hold the most pennies! We will also be making our mini habitats to show what animals survive in the habitat and explaining all about them in our posters.


Remember to bring in your shoe box and other items you listed (that school doesn't have) on Wednesday as we will be making your mini habitats.  Thank You!

Links to support home learning



There are so many different games to support a wide variety of Maths topics on this website, click and explore.


We often use games from this BBC website in our mental starters or plenaries.


Another good site which covers all Maths topics is this one from Top Marks, this has games and interactive resources and a helpful parents section. You can also choose games by age so can challenge your child accordingly.


Don't forget to go on Mathletics, if you need a reminder of your child's login details just let us know.



If you want to support your child with their phonics and spelling, there are some great games and resources here, including an interactive dictionary.


This link suggests 10 fun ways to help your child learn their spellings, especially useful if the 'look, say, cover, write, check' method does not suit your child's learning style.


This website enables you to choose a Year 2 National Curriculum learning objective from a list, this will then take you to a game or activity to complete. It really is a great site particularly if you are unsure about a piece of homework or the terminology used. It does the same for Maths also with over 200 to choose from!



Please see this list of 50 things to do before you're 11 and 3/4s from the National Trust! Children learn so much from hands on learning, being outdoors, questioning 'how' and 'why'things happen and spending quality time with those around them.Take a look at the list, how many did you do by that age?!
