Year 2

Summer 2 Week 2 (Week commencing 8/6/20)

This week I have set Maths activities and the English tasks use the book 'Monsters - An Owner's Guide'.  There is a link to me reading the book below and a link to the Word / PowerPoint documents of the book is also below.  There is also an alternative set of English tasks that focus on grammar and punctuation.

Purple Mash tasks have been set (5 maths and 5 English for the week as well as computing and art).

There is a science task and PSHE task for this week.

I have also included a maths paper and SPaG paper for you to complete if you wish (answers included).

Times Tables Rock Stars and Spelling Shed should also be used.

 

I will respond to queries and emails as much as I can throughout the school day, getting back to you as soon as possible to support you in your continuation of learning and activities.

 

Please keep in touch and let the Year 2 team know what you have been doing.  

 

If you have a specific request for learning activities that you can not find or access online, please email me and I will see if I can obtain them.
