Mrs Frankland's Class
Home Learning and the Year 2 Facebook page...
Please look out for our Year 2 Home Learning Facebook page. If you are not yet a member of the group, please ask another parent from the class who you are Facebook friends with to invite you. On the Facebook page (and here) I will update you on what you should aim to cover each week with your child. Some of the links and activities can be ongoing throughout our time away from school, others will be specific to that week. You can contact me through the Facebook page if you have any questions.
Please see links at the top of this page to plans and resources for each week.

🔥 The Great Fire of London 🔥
This term we will be learning about The Great Fire of London in our history lessons. We will be taking part in a ‘history off the page day’ on 29th January as part of our topic work.
In English we are focusing on Fantastic Mr Fox. 🦊
We will be describing the characters, writing letters from the character’s perspective and then writing our own warning stories. In science our topic is ‘everyday materials’ and we will be comparing properties and investigation suitability. In maths we will be working on multiplication and division.
➗✖️ Maths Homework ✖️➗
Weekly maths homework will be put on MyMaths every Friday. The children all have individual logins for this. During Year 2, we will be learning the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables throughout the year. You can play lots of games online to help including Hit the Button and Times Table Rock Stars which the children all have a login for.
🎾 PE ⚽️
PE sessions in Year 2 will now be on Tuesday afternoons (outdoor PE) and Thursday afternoons (indoor PE). Remember earrings can not be worn and long hair must be tied back.
🖍 English Homework ✏️
English homework will be given out each Friday in English books to be brought back the following Tuesday.
Please continue to read regularly and practise your spellings at home. Practising written comprehension questions about the book that your child is reading would also be beneficial.
In the Autumn Term, our topic is 'Around the World'. We will be learning lots about the world around us, including the names of oceans and continents.
In literacy lessons, we will be looking at different features we can find in poems and focusing on performing poetry effectively. We will also be looking at descriptive writing, story writing and postcards.
In maths lessons, we will be recapping our place value knowledge, adding, subtracting and learning about shape and fractions of shapes.
In science lessons we will be learning about animals and their habitats.
