Weekly Maths Lessons


There are resources for this week's maths lessons which focus on fractions. 


Please follow the following link



Please continue to work on the Year 2 High Frequency and Common Exception Words. Ask your child about the methods we use in school to help them to learn spellings: boxing up, adding a picture, writing in a sentence etc. 

  • Reading:


    Ask your child to read the extract of text and answer the questions on their own. Then ask them to read the text out loud and discuss the answers that they have given. Encourage them to go back to the text to find and copy the answers where possible rather than guessing or using memory. 

    • Please continue to listen to your child read their school reading book or any other books that you may have at home. Newsround has a good variety of news articles that the children enjoy reading, but please check their suitability first. 


    CBBC Newsround:  



Audible are offering children free access to audio books for children whilst schools are closed. Set aside time for your child to listen to a story. This is priceless! Listening to stories will help your child in many ways, by developing their understanding of language, sentence structure and stimulates their imaginations.
