Year 2


Today we are going to be learning all about symmetry in 2D shapes. If you wanted to do something creative today then you could try making some symmetrical art pictures by painting on one half of the paper, folding the paper in half down the middle and pressing on the painted side and then opening it back up to see the symmetrical art work that you have made. Have fun!

Spelling quiz

The weekly spelling quiz is a an opportunity to see which words your child can spell independently.

The spelling quiz should focus on the spelling words that were given out last Wednesday that match your child's ability (please see last Wednesday's home learning page for the spellings). 

The spelling quiz is held each Tuesday and if you would like to share the results of the quiz with your child's class teacher they can do this via class dojo.
The spelling quiz is carried out by an adult saying the word aloud and putting it into context (e.g. The word to spell is "plate", "can you put your plate in the sink?". Then the child can write it down and move onto the next word by repeating this process. 



Mindfulness focuses on paying attention to the present moment (thoughts and feelings) as well as the world around you. This can improve mental wellbeing. The link below is to a guided deep breathing session in order to support relaxation and mental focus.


Today we will be learning about the past tense. We will be finding out why most parts of a letter are written in the past tense and practising writing some past tense sentences of our own after completing some challenges.



Today's handwriting task is outlined in videos which can be found via the link below. 


The resources needed to support the handwriting task are below. 

PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) 


Our topic for this half term is Going for Goals. In today's session we are going to focus on exploring what a goal is and how to set goals. Your task is to come up with 3 different goals (you could write these 3 goals down or just discuss them). Have a look at the video link below for the PSHE session.

P.E (Physical Education)
Today in P.E we are going to try a gymnastics challenge. The link below will show you a poster describing the types of shapes and moves we would like you to try.


Can you make a gymnastic sequence using those shapes and moves? An example of a gymnastic sequence is in the link below. You may need adult supervision when trying some of these shapes and moves.  

You can show your class teacher your amazing moves using class dojo (messages or portfolio).
