Year 2

Home learning week beginning 1.3.21 with live lessons 

 

Live lessons are marked in red. Year 2 have the same 'live' slots everyday. 

 

We are now introducing 'Reading' at 10:30am instead of Phonics for most children. Activities are mainly comprehension based in order to develop the children's written answers. The comprehension activities are, however, not appropriate for those children who are reading Pink, Red, Yellow, Blue or Green level books to access independently. If your child is reading a home reading book at this level (or has an SEN plan linked to phonics), please still follow the Phonics lessons linked in purple on the timetable.

We were learning about the –ful suffix last week. Practise spelling these words (joined if you can):

joyful

thankful

useful

helpful

colourful

beautiful

 

If your child is finding joining tricky, please just concentrate on correct formation of letters (unjoined) with a lead in off the line and a ‘flick’ at the end of each letter
