Home Learning in Year 2
During this year, we know that many Year 2 children may have to isolate for two weeks and spend time away from their class so we are continuing to provide online learning for those that need it, when they need it. We learned a lot about online learning in the summer term and about what works well for our parents and the children.
We will continue to use Google Classroom, but we are also posting lots of learning on our website to make it more accessible. The school will provide you with a Home Learning Book, so that your child can keep their work safe and be proud of what they achieve. We will encourage you to share photographs of this work with your teacher through Google Classroom. Some work will be best completed online.
Our aim is to make this as accessible to parents and families as possible.
While you are at home, you will also get regular calls from a member of your class team so that we can work together to support you child while they are at home.

This week we are learning about the sounds: ir and ue.
To support your child with these sounds, we have listed some online lessons below. These lessons will work best if you sit with your child and work through the video lesson together. Each lesson will take around 20 minutes and it will be good practice for your child to repeat them on different days.
Children can also practice their sounds and phonics independently using a Reading Eggs Account. We’ve bought one for every child in Year 2. Be warned! Reading Eggs has lots of games. The games are fun and can be helpful, but make sure your child is doing the lessons first! It’s also very important that you don’t help your child with their test at the end of each map, as that decides whether or not they are ready to move on.
Every child should read every day, whether at home or at school and it’s important to plan this in. Many children enjoy reading in their beds before they fall asleep or perhaps they get up early and enjoy reading then. While they are unable to attend school, it’s important that they continue to read every day and find time to do a bit extra. Perhaps straight after breakfast, or before they eat their lunch.
Every child should be bringing home a reading book every night which can stay at home while they isolate.
- You could ask them to tell you what happened in the story and what their favourite part was.
- Talk about the characters and how they feel.
- Don’t worry if they’ve read the book with you already, re-reading a book is great practice and helps develop reading confidence.
At Lansbury Lawrence, we use White Rose Maths to support our learning in class and at home. There are videos that you can watch to help you support your child here:
Because the school buys the worksheets, we cannot publish these on our website, but we have published them in your Google Classroom pages. If you need help accessing these, please speak to a member of your class team.
If you want to practise your number skills after your lesson, we’ve got accounts for all of Year 2 on Numbots:
If you would like more detail on the maths learning, you can access our lesson by lesson overview below:

Here we’ve put other links that we think might interest your child and help you with your learning. These links are not chosen because they match closely with our curriculum, but will support those children who want to do a little bit extra.
