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.

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

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.

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!

Due to the unprecedented situation that all schools are facing, school will be closed for most children for the foreseeable future. This doesn’t mean that learning has to end, but it is imperative that fun continues. We will be regularly updating the website with the resources the children who are still in school are using.

At the top of your child’s year group page, you will find links to many different websites offering a range of resources and learning ideas. Teachers will update the “Homework” section of each class’s page regularly with the resources used in school.

We realise that this could be very stressful for parents and children alike, and as such, teachers will be available through the messaging service on Class Dojo (link on class pages). We are offering a wide range of resources, please use these resources (and others) as little or as often as you feel is necessary for your child.

Stay safe & take care.
