Welcome to Year 2 Home Learning
You will see tabs on the right of this page, which will direct you to the resources you need each week for your home learning.
Each week will include your weekly Homework Menu. You can earn stars by completing the activities. Can you reach 20 stars? Maybe you’ll even earn some bonus stars!
Some of the boxes direct you to an extra information sheet. These can be downloaded from the same page. We understand that not everyone has printers at home and will keep worksheet resources to a minimum. Anything that is presented as a worksheet (e.g. your 10 a days!) could always be copied into your home learning books. They will also be uploaded as a word document so they can be edited on your devices if you prefer,
One of your tasks is to read every day. This can be a mixture of independent reading and sharing or listening to books read by others. You can read anything from your bookshelves and sharing with other children in your house is always a great idea too. Why not also try watching your favourite TV programme with the subtitles on if you fancy a different reading challenge!
In addition, here are some useful links to online reading:
