We would suggest one Maths activity, one Literacy activity and one other subject area activity each day where possible.

This half term our topic is 'Amazing Africa'. You should have received a copy of the curriculum overview and some Year 2 spellings to practise at home. Below are copies incase you have lost them or they haven't found there way home.
This half term we are reading and looking at the text 'Lila and the Secret of the Rain' Watch the story and then read through the PowerPoints on diary accounts and Africa. Write daily diary accounts from the viewpoint of Lila of what she did each day. What did she do next? to. Remember to use the fantastics and first person. What does it look like? What sounds can you hear? How do you feel? What are you doing? Use lots of adjectives and description.
The documents in the files contain some English activities you can do if you are isolating. Remember to keep up with your daily reading and spelling practise.
Practise these Year 1 and 2 spellings, if you know them all can your write them into different sentences? Try painting them, making them out of stones, hiding them around the house, sticking them on post it notes to read around the house. Find them in your reading books. How creative can you be?
This half term we have been learning all about multiplication and division. These documents in the files will help you to go over these skills whilst you are at home. Don't forget to play on Times Table Rockstars for at least 10 minutes each day.

Please continue to practise your times tables.
There are lots of online songs to help with learning the times tables. Children in year 2 need to learn their 2 times tables, 5 times tables and 10 times tables. It would be helpful if they could also learn their three times table and count in threes.
This half term we are learning all about caring for the environment. Watch this story and then think of all the ways in which you can care for the environment.
You could create posters, write instructions, write letters to friends, take photos of ways in which you help at home.
In Science this half term we are focussing on the area of living things and their habitats.
Each week in Literacy we are learning about a different continent, our Science will be linked to these continents each week.
This week we are finding out about Asia. Look through the presentation to find out about which animals live in Asia and why. We look forward to receiving your Science work for this week.
Within our theme of Special words and stories we will be continuing to learn about the Christianity faith. We will share the bible story of the death and resurrection of Jesus.
Make sure you log onto Real P.E to access the home P.E lessons.
Take regular exercise outside like walks, runs, on your bike, on your scooter.
Extra! Extra! If you want some more work to do have a look at these. Vocabulary ninja helps you to increase your vocabulary. Practise putting the different words into sentences.
Once Upon a time is a great activity for our Vipers especially interpret. Choose a picture and answer the questions about it.
Listen to the Continent songs. Can you learn one of them and film it and send it to your teacher to listen to. Listen and appraise the songs from Asia. Do you like them? Why? Why not? What can you hear? How does it make you feel? Can you research instruments that are played/made in Asia?
