On this page, you will find ideas to help Year 2 pupils learn at home. 

Are you feeling worried about something?

With everything that is happening at the moment, it is perfectly normal to be worried. If there are things which are making you feel sad, angry or upset then there are people you can talk to and some wonderful resources to help you.

We have compiled some links and techniques to help you cope with any emotions you are struggling with at home but please talk to us in school.

Spelling is a key skill that your child will need to use in daily life. Spelling aids reading and helps consolidate the connection between sounds and letters. Learning high frequency sight words has also been shown to help with both reading and writing. 

From Reception onwards, each year group or phase has a selection of words that we call our non-negotiables - words that we expect every child in that year group to learn before the end of the year or phase. As many of our children are currently learning at home, we have created specific spelling home learning projects to help them learn how to spell these words. Within these home learning projects, there are a range of engaging activities that will support your child to learn these spellings.

Multiplication and Division

Times tables are an essential aspect of mathematics. Knowing the times tables (and their associated division facts) supports mathematical learning and understanding of new concepts. We have created a project which focuses on a strategy based approach. This means that children will be exploring a range of methods in which they can use to learn about times tables. This would build understanding by focusing on connections in order to support retrieval and application of times tables.
