Lockdown Learning Pack - Spring 2022
In the event of a need to isolate, the two day initial learning pack is below.
Each half term we carry out our learning through different topics. Click here to see an overview of our topics.
This half term our topic has been ‘How does Borneo compare with England?’ We have enjoyed learning about the different types of weather and different types of housing. We have also loved learning about the rainforest and all the different animals that live there! We wrote our own versions of the story ‘Angry Arthur’ which was great fun. We built our own houses on stilts too, which is what people live in in a place called Kampong Ayer.
Useful resources for Year 2
Below is a list of common exception words that children need to learn to read and spell in Year 2. Children will also need to continue to secure any words from their Year 1 curriculum that they are not reading or spelling accurately.
On the PhonicsPlay website you can access some games and activities, to support your child’s learning in Phonics, for free. The tasks support the children with blending, sentence substitution and alternative spellings. In the Autumn term we focus on phase 5 revision but you can access the other phases if you need to.
If your child needs to read a new reading book, you can access online book band reading books for free! Follow the link to the Oxford Owl website and create your own free account to access book band reading books. Make sure you select the colour reading band that your child is currently reading in school.
On YouTube search 'Reading books aloud for key stage one'. You can choose the stories the children can listen to. You may choose to watch these first before you share them with your child.
Whole units of work (we can direct you to these in the event of a pod closure) can be found at the Oak National Academy website.
Work through the activities on the White Rose Maths website to consolidate the maths learning that we do in school.
Topmarks is another useful website for maths games to play at home.
