Year 2: Mrs Nicholson & Miss Buckingham

22nd March


This week for homework, I would like you to ask a parent to record you giving a speech about climate change. (Think back to our work on Friday about Greta Thunberg) Please send your video to and address it for the attention of Mrs Nicholson.


I'm very excited to watch your videos! Remember you can use props to help your video come to life.


Watch the below video for some ideas:


Friday 15th March


Please continue to complete the MyMaths tasks and to practise number facts and times tables facts on Numbots and TT-Rockstars. We already have a successful Rock Hero!


Spelling Shed- please practise the words on Spelling shed. These are the same words that are on the Spelling Overview.


This week we have focused on Greta Thunberg as one of our Greatest History Makers. 

Using the link below watch and discuss the video with an adult. What changes can you make to help stop Climate Change?



Friday 8th March


Please login to MyMaths to complete the set task. Also continue to work on TT-Rockstars and Numbots.


Please refresh your memory about Malala- one of the people we are studying as one of our 'Greatest History Makers.' Watch the video link below:


Friday 1st March

Homework this week is to login to TT-Rockstars and practise your times tables. Also please login to Numbots and play the game. (Login details were resent home yesterday.)


Ms Buckingham has set a Spelling Shed task. 


Rosa Parks- As part of our History Topic, The Greatest History Makers, we have been looking at the life of Rosa Parks. The children have been using excellent vocabulary; segregation, racism, discrimination and protest. Please chat to your child and ask them to tell you about what they have learned about Rosa Parks, encouraging them to use the words above in their explanation.


Year 2: Mrs Nicholson & Miss Buckingham

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year!

We hope that you had a wonderful festive family Christmas.  It has been fantastic hearing from the children what they did during the break, and they have very much enjoyed sharing the different presents that they received. 


Home Learning

We will post weekly homework tasks here every Friday. (Starting Friday 12th January)

Most of the homework has to be completed online using home learning programmes.

  • My Maths: /Purple Mash There will be a weekly maths task set on one of these programmes. The focus for this half-term is multiplication and division.
  •  Big Maths CLIC: Please look at the tests the children bring home each Monday and go over any errors. Please get in touch if you need some guidance!
  • Spelling Shed: The children can practise their set spellings for the week. (These are the spelling words from the spelling and vocabulary sheets sent home half-termly) 
  • Reading: Please read as often as you can, but at least four times a week. The children will bring home  a new sharing book every Friday. Could they please bring them in on this day to swap. Once our phonic programme begins again (Monday 8th January) they will bring home phonic books. For children who have finished the phonics programme please see the next paragraph.


Book Changing Day

                            The children are allocated a time slot to change their reading books on a Friday. They are to pick books from their ZPD range. This means the texts they are reading are at an appropriate level for them. They will be bought home on Friday night and are to be returned the following Friday. They also have books from their ZPD range in school. Whilst your child might be able to read fluently, it would be incredibly beneficial if you could read with your child, and also talk about what they have read. Some children will be coming home with a Read Write Ink book as well. They will be given this by the teacher who leads their sessions, so they may come home on a different night.



Our P.E day is Tuesday. Can children please come to school on this day in their normal uniform on the top half and blue shorts or joggers instead of school skirts and trousers on the bottom.


We look forward to working with you to support the needs of your child.  If you need to speak to us, then we are always available on the playground at the end of the day, alternatively contact the office and we can arrange a time to meet.


Many thanks,

Mrs Nicholson and Miss Buckingham
