Welcome to Year 2's Learning Page.  During this period of remote learning, daily work will be set on Seesaw. Seesaw is designed to function on any PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

 

Children can also use DB Primary via the Children's Pages on this website to find activities, post on the class forum and email other children or their teachers.

 

If you need any more support with your remote learning such as your log in details, please email your teacher at year2@stthomas.org.uk, or message us through your DB Primary Email. 

 

Thank you, Mr Smith & Mrs Washington.

Reading

Weekly Homework

 

You can read to yourself, read to a family member or listen to someone else read, but try to read every day.

 

A full digital reading library is available on Oxford Owls and you can access as many books as you like.  Our digital subscription is up and running and your teacher will help you choose books at an appropriate level.

When we arw in school, if you prefer traditional books, you will be given a book each Monday, please return it by Friday.

 

 

 

Remote Learning

You should read at home every day. Reading to an adult or to someone else in your family is the best way to practise reading. We will also read to you on Seesaw and ask you some questions about what we have read, to help you to improve your comprehension (understanding of reading).

 

Our class novel is The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson

 

We will read chapters of this book to you on Seesaw, with questions for you to answer about that chapter. We will also read shorter picture books to you sometimes that we can read to you in one go.

 

 

 

Writing

 

 

While you are doing your learning from home, you will find your weekly learning here. You will need to complete a writing activity each day.

 

In English we will look at the story 'Eddie's Garden and how plants grow' by Sarah Gardner, then we will move on to writing instructions about how to grow fruit and vegetables. We might even try and grow some plants ourselves.

 

Spelling - Weekly Homework

Our words for  the next two weeks are 'kn'and 'gn' words: 

Try to learn these 10 spellings for our practise and tests on Fridays - 

knot knife knew knee knit knight gnat sign design gnome

 

This website has some fun games to play too-https://www.topmarks.co.uk/english-games/5-7-years/letters-and-sounds

 

DB Primary

You can also log in to DB Primary to see what tasks and games we have set you, or what you can find yourself. If you find a Year 2 activity too hard, try a Year 1 task until you feel confident. If a Year 2 tasks is too easy, take the challenge of trying the same activity at Year 3 level! If you forget your log in details, use the email address:

year2@stthomas.org.uk

to send an email to Mrs Washington or Mr Smith, we will reply to you as soon as we can.
