This week, the homework is Talk Time and should be completed by Thursday 08 October.

Are animals happy in zoos?

This is a moral question, based around our science learning about living things. which we’d like you to discuss at home with your child. During the discussion with your child, it’s important to appreciate that there may be two opposing views and that although it’s okay to disagree we should respect the opposing view.

Top Tips:

  • Turn the telly off!
  • Sit around the dining table!
  • Have a chat and share opinions and ideas!
  • Children should talk with family, friends and each other –maybe even using FaceTime or Skype.

There is no need to record anything in your child’s homework book from your discussions at home. The children will be able to share their views when we review the homework at the end of the week.

Talk about how to stay safe when playing games online.

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?

Week 14: 14.07.20: Home learning

Posted on Monday 13 July 2020 by Mrs Taylor

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! We have missed the class very much and we are sorry the year has come to an end before we could all be back at school together.

We hope you have a safe and relaxing summer holiday and we shall see you all when you return to school as the new Year 3 class.  We know Mr Wain will have a great year with such a fantastic class.

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

Lesson 1 science/reading

Do you remember back in February, we started our grow your own potatoes project.

Well, they have been well cared for at home and the time has come to harvest the potatoes.

1.Read this text to see how the potatoes were harvested.

2.Watch this video to show how the potato farmer harvests their potatoes and gets them ready for the supermarket.

3.Read and complete this quiz based on the video. Here are the answers.

Lesson 2 maths

First of all, spend 10/15 minutes on Times Table Rock Stars.

Today, try a suduku challenge to test your problem solving and reasoning skills.  Start by completing the 4×4 grid. Then, try the 6×6 grid.

Lesson 3 PE 

This skipping activity is led by someone the children will recognise. Unfortunately, our Year 2 Skipping School Festival couldn’t take place this term but click here to watch the video and join in if you have a skipping rope at home.

If you don’t have access to a skipping rope at home, choose five of the ThisisPE challenges.
