Year 2 Home Learning S1

Summer 1

This is the Home Learning page for the half term ending 22nd May. Go to the main class page in the menu above to access the Summer 2 Home Learning information.

Within this home learning guide, you will find a wealth of resources to support your child in their learning at home throughout the next half term. We will also be ‘tweeting’ additional useful resources every day, so please do try and follow us on twitter to ensure that you can access these valuable resources.

Please do not feel in any way pressured to complete all of the work, we are trying to provide as much as people will need, but we also know that the health and well-being of your family is your priority at this time.

Below is a suggested timetable for guidance:


To support your learning in English and keep your writing skills up whilst we are away from school, you now have a weekly writing sheet with suggested work which has been broken into a weekly sequence similar that used in school.

Or you could complete a 2-page spread of Reading CGP book and check your answers.


To support reading, Oxford Owl have released free e-books. These match our skills colour banded books that your child reads in school. Simply go onto the Oxford Owl website, go onto ‘book banded levels’ and select the colour book that your child reads at school.

I have also included a reading guidance sheets for the children to practise their reading skills.


Children can practise these on Spelling Shed.


White Rose Maths is a fantastic resource where the children can watch a video and complete an activity every day. The documents below support the weekly maths home learning and these will be released weekly.

The children can also complete their CGP maths work books and can be supported in checking the answers of their work.

In addition to these Maths and English resources, please see the ‘Learning at Home Grid’ for more ideas:

Physical Activity

We recommend you do four sessions per day for 15 minutes each, to reach at least 60 minutes of exercise per day. Here are some suggestions:

9.00 am: PE with Joe Wicks.
10.15 am: (Strictly Come Dancing champion) does a live dance class for children every day:
12.30 pm: go to family activity pack.
3.00 pm:>stayinworkout go to with the Kids – Disney dance-alongs.

As well as all of this, Mr Birrane has made a ‘games ideas’ sheet:

Or, why not take part in our ’10 a day, the East Morton way’ challenge. For inspiration, follow our Twitter feed @EastMortonCEP to see what ’10 a day’ activities some of the staff and children have been doing.

Learning Challenge

It is expected that children will complete 1-2 hours of learning challenge per week. Children are to work in their Learning Challenge work booklets.

Sea sides: The seaside topic is new for the children so they may need to use the internet, maps or atlases to support them if available. This term’s work was included in the booklets sent home with the children.


Task 1: Habitats poster – can you make a poster about different habitats?

Task 2: Food chains- can you make a food chain?

Task 3: Can you make your own habitat? You can be as creative as you want! Send me photos of your finished product. Have fun!

Links for maths e-learning have been added to the weekly maths information sheets. Additional e-learning opportunities:
