Welcome to the Year 2 Home learning Page!

It’s such a shame we can’t see you right now because we had to close the school for a while. We would really like to stay in touch with you and want you to keep working hard. Each week, on this page, you will find new learning activities for you to complete at home. Try and do as many as you can-we know you can do it! Also, don’t forget to look on the ‘Homework Websites’ page for lots more fun, learning websites.

Keep working hard, we are proud of you!

 

Mr Goodship, Mrs Seed, Ms Maltby, Mrs Morris  and Ms Astill

Imagine you are in school and we would like to go on a trip to the Moon! The only problem is, Mr Tee isn't sure whether he should let us go or not. Your task this week is to write a letter to Mr Tee that you think would persuade him to let us go on a trip to the moon. Think about how you will persuade him. Maybe you should explain how it will help with your learning. Maybe you need to tell him why you want to go. What will you do there? He might be worried about the cost or about your safety. How will you persuade him that it is safe and that we will get the money for the trip? We can't wait to see your letters!

It could be Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, The Three Little Pigs or any other one that you like. You could retell the story using your voice first, perhaps to a member of your family. Then have a go at writing it down. Can you remember all the details? You could include adjectives to describe, and conjunctions (and, but, when, because, if, so, or) to join your ideas. If you really like a challenge, you could have a go at creating your own story!
