Well, it’s the last day of the summer term. Sadly, the school year has ended in a very unexpected way. All the staff in Year 2 are incredibly proud of each and everyone of you.  well-done-23443783 - Tappy Twins

Today, I have given you some tasks about continuing to stay safe online. We have been using technology an awful lot over the last few months and it is very important to stay safe online just as you do in the real world.

Task 1

Staying safe online

Watch Episode 3 – Playing games

Talk about how to stay safe when playing games online.

Task 2

Choose an activity to complete.



Task 3

It is important to understand that sometimes things don’t appear quite ‘right’ online and can be dangerous or distressing.

When should you ask an adult for help or advice?

Who are personal ‘safe’ adults who children can trust about online worries?

Can you sort these scenarios into two groups?

  1. Does it feel right?
  2. Does it feel wrong?


Have a great summer and STAY SAFE!

Task 3


Sing along with this song. Read the words as you go.

So long, farewell (from the Sound of Music)

There’s a sad sort of clanging
From the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple, too
And up in the nursery

An absurd little bird
Is popping out to say coo-coo
(Coo-coo, coo-coo)

coo-coo Regretfully they tell us
coo-coo But firmly they compel us
coo-coo To say goodbye
To you

So long, farewell
Auf wiedersehen, goodnight
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight
So long, farewell
auf Wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu
To you and you and you
So long, farewell
Au revoir, auf Wiedersehen
I’d like to stay
And taste my first champagne

So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
I leave and heave
A sigh and say goodbye
I’m glad to go
I cannot tell a lie
I flit, I float
I fleetly flee, I fly
The sun has gone
To bed and so must I
So long, farewell
auf Wiedersehen, goodbye


Now, write a list of any words that are new to you. Can you find out what they mean?

Hello Year 2 children and their families. It is my last home learning post for you all today so I wanted to say thank you to your adults for all your support as you have taken over our role for the last fourteen weeks!

So, here we go with the learning for you for today.
