Home Learning Resources

Here you will find regular updates about what the children in school have been learning, with pdf resources to have a go at.

We have gathered many other education websites in our Learning Zone. These cover a wide range of topics and subjects, and cover all primary ages.

The Swaledale Alliance, a network of teaching schools that we work closely with, has provided a useful list of educational resources as well, these can be found here

Feel free to contact your class teacher using Class Dojo for any help or support you may need, or to send some work through that your child has done at home!

Our Spelling Menu and Hundred Square Challenge that are in your homework packs are here in case you haven’t got them at home.

Current Topic

Beachcombers – Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside. Do you? That’s good, because you’re about to become an expert beachcomber and it’s just about one of the only places we’re allowed to go and walk around freely in this lockdown hoohaa!

Head to your nearest beach to look for interesting and unusual objects, using your senses to spot, sniff and seek them out. Have you seen the rock pools yet? You can take a peek into the cool water to learn about the weird and wonderful animals and plants in their microhabitats. Maybe you can kick back in a deckchair and do a little reading. What’s your favourite book about the seashore? Why not invent an amazing rock pool resident. What features will it need to survive happily in its watery habitat? Make a 3-D model of your plant or creature. Got your shorts and sunglasses on? Bucket and spade at the ready? I wish we could all go beachcombing together!

Books you could read… The Snail and the Whale – Julia Donaldson; Tiddler – Julia Donaldson; Sally and the Limpet – Simon James; A House for a Hermit Crab – Eric Carle

Mental Health and Wellbeing

Here are some resources to help you talk with your child about their mental health and wellbeing during this time. This lesson from the PSHE association is all about feelings and emotions and will help your child to recognise different feelings in themselves and others, identify that people can feel differently about things and situations and explain who can help them with their feelings.

This is great starting point to check in with your child on how they are feeling about the current situation. If you need any advice or further resources please contact me on class dojo.

Mental Health (Year 1-2) – Home Learning Lesson

Feelings Vocabulary Cards

Transition

Acknowledging the impact of school closures, the lessons encourage pupils to reflect on the range of opportunities and challenges that they might experience as they move from one key stage to the next, as well as how they can manage these. Pupils will also be able to analyse different sources of support and assess who and what can help them, both during school closures and in the future. Finally, pupils are given the opportunity to celebrate their successes in school so far.

This lesson will help pupils to;

  • Identify feelings about moving to the next key stage
  • Explore the impact of school closures on transition
  • Describe the changes that can occur as they move to the next key stage
  • Assess the challenges of transition and strategies to manage these
  • Identify sources of support

Please check class dojo for the powerpoint and accompanying resources. I’ve sent them in a message 🙂

In school we have been creating our own puppet shows of our favourite stories!

We have taken inspiration from Y1 and the amazing Miss Palmer and chosen our favourite picture book and then created our own puppets and stages ready to film a dramatic retelling of our favourite story!

You could choose a book we have read together; The Pirates Next Door, The Highway Rat, Love Bugs… or you could choose your favourite story you have at home!

Once you have made all the parts, get an adult to film you retelling your story using your puppets and send it to me so we can watch it at school! 

I will post the videos from the children in school this week, or if you can’t wait you could watch Y1’s videos for inspiration!

If you need a refresher, our friend Amber has some lovely videos explaining o’clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past.

 

 

She then looks at reading minutes past and to the hour. We haven’t looked at this together yet, but you might already be really good at it!

Watch this video and then have a go at the worksheets below. Remember to pace yourself, only do one or two a day! And remember each section gets harder and harder so don’t push yourself too hard!

Phonics/Spelling


This week in phonics we are looking at Homophones and Near Homophones. This is one of my favourite things to teach, you can have so much fun with the different words!

Some words sound the same or very similar but they are spelt differently and have different meanings. These words are called homophones or near homophones. Sometimes there are more than two spellings of a word.

Words like…

  • here – hear
  • plane – plain
  • sea – see
  • eye – I
  • two – to – too

Can you think of any other homophones? Write them down on a piece of paper…

You could create your own game of pairs to practice reading and writing homophones and near homophones. Write as many pairs as you can think of on different pieces of paper and then turn them over. Take it in turns to pick a piece of paper and see if you can match the pairs up!

If you need a refresher you can always watch these videos.

Each day there is a Varied Fluency (VF) sheet to help you practice the skill and then a Reasoning and Problem Solving (RPS) sheet to help you use that skill when solving problems. You only need to do one of each type of sheet. You should remember what colour you usually are, but if you can’t just message me on class dojo!

For the rest of the week I would like you to write a book review of the pirates next door. This should take you a few days as I want you to think about a lot of different things. You can create your own or use the template below, but make sure you have a lot at the template so you know all the things you need to include.

Remember our Y2 writing checklist!

  • Capital letters
    • For the start of a sentence.
    • For a proper noun. (days of the week, names of people or places)
  • Full stops!
  • Neat handwriting
    • Finger spaces
    • Letters the same size
  • Spellings – sound out words you are unsure of! Use your phonics!

Have you used…

  • Adjectives to describe nouns or feelings?
  • Adverbs to describe verbs?
  • Conjunctions to add more information?

Phonics/Spelling


This week in phonics we are looking at the suffixes -ful, -less and -ly. As well as the common exception words 

Usually –ful and –less are added to the end of words to make adjectives. Adjectives with –ful mean ‘full of’; –less means ‘without’. We add the suffix -ly to adjectives to create adverbs. Adverbs are used to describe a verb.

graceful   careless   wonderful   badly   powerful   happily   breathless   luckily   caught   daughter

This week we are revisiting place value – I want you to practice your reasoning and problem solving skills. Remember place value is all about the digits in a number and what value they have depending on the place they are in. In Year 2 we usually work with hundreds, tens and ones.

You are already absolutely fantastic with your place value skills but now I want to see if you can put those to practice with reasoning and problem solving by answering some word problems and having a go at explaining yourself a bit more.

This week I want you to write a newspaper article about the arrival of an unusual family in Dul-on-Sea. 

Remember our writing process – features, plan, draft, edit, write.

We always start by looking at different examples of what kind of writing we are doing. So start by having a look at different newspaper reports. Think about their features, what do they all have to have to make them look like newspapers.

Then you can start to think about your content. Plan what you want to write. When writing newspapers we often think of what, when, where, who, why, how questions. So you could try writing sentences about the following things to plan your report.

  • What happened? Describe the event – remember to use adjectives.
  • When did it happen? Tell your readers about when it happened, what time of day was it? What time of year?
  • Where has it happened? Talk about the town, what is it usually like?
  • Who does it involve? Who was there? Who has arrived?
  • Why has it happened? What do they want? What do you think is going to happen?

Remember you are writing from the point of view of a person who lives in Dul-on-Sea, not Matilda or Jim-Lad.

Once you have planned your writing you can start putting your report together. Remember the features that you need to include and write in your best handwriting. 

You can use the resources below to help you.

This week we are going to continue looking at Position and Direction. The two objectives we need to look at and master are;

  • order and arrange combinations of mathematical objects in patterns and sequences.
  • use mathematical vocabulary to describe position, direction and movement, including movement in a straight line and distinguishing between rotation as a turn and in terms of right angles for quarter, half and three-quarter turns (clockwise and anti-clockwise)

You have already done lots of work on this last week, so will be familiar with some of the words and questions already. The worksheets I have uploaded are set out in three different stages – A – easier, B – medium and C – tricky. Try to do as many questions as you can for each sheet.

Before we start I want you to look at the front cover and think about what you think this book might be about! You will know lots about pirates already from your research so I want you to use all of that knowledge you have gathered and have a think about what you think will happen in this book? Where do you think it will be set? What kind of a story will it be? Who will be the main characters? Don’t forget to look at the pictures and justify your ideas.

Wednesday 25th – English and a bit of Science mixed in!

Go outside and find lots of different flowers and leaves to make your own herbarium (a collection of dried flowers and leaves) You could even write your own poem to go along with your herbarium! Watch this video for an explanation! This project will take you a few days so have fun with it!


Monday 23rd March

This week we are going to write our own instructions for planting a seed. You could still work towards doing this if you want to or you could write a set of instructions on how to wash your hands or how to make a sandwich.

First step is to have a go at doing the activity you want to write your instructions for.

Then you need to plan your writing. Think about each step carefully and consider what imperative verbs, adverbs and time conjunctions you could use.

Finally have a go at creating your own set of instructions.

Remember to stop after each sentence and read it back and check your writing for capital letters, full stops, correct spellings etc. I have uploaded a checklist for you to help with your writing.

In phonics this week we are looking at ‘war’ saying /wor/ and ‘wor’ saying /wur/. These words will be your spellings for this week. For those with a Twinkl membership (they are free at the moment with the code UKTWINKLHELPS) we are on Level 6 – week 23

war  world  ward  worst  warm  work  towards  worth

I have uploaded some activities for you to practice this rule and remember you can use your spelling menu to practice them yourselves.

English


We have been writing a recount of what we did during last week’s science week. We have talked about separating our writing into paragraphs for each day of Science Week and using conjunctions (because, and, so, but, if, when etc) to add more information to our writing. Here is the checklist we used to help us to remember what we needed to include.

Phonics


This week we are looking at contractions – using apostrophes to replace missing letters in words like can’t, we’d, I’ve, couldn’t, you’ll, should’ve, didn’t, could’ve. We are also looking at the common exception words aunt and father. You could do a contraction hunt and use a book or magazine to find as many contracted words as possible or make your own contraction pairs game to match the contracted words with the original.

Welcome the Year 2 page! 

Year 2 is an exciting year for the children as they come to end of their Key Stage 1 journey!


This year the children will have all sorts of amazing learning opportunities through a creative and engaging curriculum. Each topic starts with a memorable experience to engage the children in their learning, then they develop their knowledge and understanding and finish by having the opportunity to express what they have learnt.


We will start the year learning about Castles in our topic ‘Towers, Tunnels and Turrets’ where we will be introduced to many of our marvellous monarchs and their kingdoms. Then, to (draw)bridge the gap between Art and History, we will move onto Muck, Mess and Mixtures (just to mix it up a bit) In this topic we will be investigating all sorts of weird and wonderful mixtures through Art, Recipes, Science experiments.


In the Spring term we will be wriggling our way through the scented garden and learning all about creepy critters and fragrant flowers – their scientific knowledge will surely blossom.


The tide will change as Summer approaches, Year 2 will treasure their time learning about our beaches and all that washes up! 


We are going to have a lot of fun this year! We will be working incredibly hard getting ready for the end of KS1 but will not just be looking at Maths, English & Science! The children will be learning much more about themselves and becoming more and more independent as well as growing on confidence and resilience.

Wellbeing and Mental Health are vitally important and we will be taking time each week to be mindful of how we are feeling and talk about things that are bothering us.

We are going to have an amazing year! Stay tuned for more updates of what we’ve been up to!


A note from Miss Clark:

Thank you so much for taking the time to read through this page. Your support and encouragement means so much to your child and to me so thank you for all that you do! Remember, you can keep updated with your child’s day via class dojo and see what they’re doing well! I look forward to sharing your child’s successes and  achievements with you throughout the year!
