Over the next couple of weeks we are going to be looking at poetry. What do you already know about poems? Do they all have rhyming words?

See if you can find any poems in your house or online. Can you perform your poem to a family member? If you record it we would love to see them!

Why did you choose this poem? What did you like about it?

Can you copy the poem out and display it in an interesting way. You may choose to accompany it with pictures or write the rhyming words in different colours.


Audible stories currently have a wide range of stories for your child to listen to. These are all free and you can select appropriate stories by ages.

This game will help you learn your spellings. Click on your year group and then choose a bird box and practise those spellings.


This week I would like you to look at the life cycle of a plant. Please watch the following video and record what you find out. You could do this as a poster, piece of writing or even just do the quiz.



Remember how important doing exercise is for keeping your body and mind healthy.

This week we would like you to do some personal best challenges. Complete the challenges daily and see if each day you can beat the previous day’s data.

  • Run between two points- time yourself, you could do this by counting or using a stopwatch on a phone or tablet.
  • Throwing a ball in a bucket. How many times do you get it in the bucket? You could use a ball of socks and a bowl to do this if you don’t have a ball.
  • How far can you jump? You can measure this using standard or non-standard unit. You could measure using your feet, hands or Lego bricks.    


Can you figure out which way is North, South, East and West? See if a grown up can help you. Once you have found this can you go for a walk and write some directions for someone else to follow?

See if you can learn a pneumonic to help you remember them such as Never Eat Shredded Wheat.

Wellbeing Activities

This week is mental health awareness week and this year the is focus on the act of kindness.

We have attached a document at the bottom of the page.

SPAG (Year 2)


Please use the following link to play a game that is linked to common exception words for spelling. Once on the game you can choose a year group and then choose a bird house to select some words for your child to try. Please do not worry about starting on a lower year group, these words are tricky ones that your child will come across frequently so it is important they become familiar with them.



This website has some games and interactive activities.



Here are some PE and mindfulness activities that you can do at home with your child.
