Welcome to home learning for term 6!
Just a quick reminder of what to expect throughout each week.
Maths and English lessons will be updated daily.
Our project this term is science based so there will be no additional weekly science lessons.
Our project lessons will be uploaded with our English lessons this term as they will work along side each other.
There will also be a weekly spelling and reading comprehension task.
Just a reminder that you do not need to worry about printing any of the activity sheets out. They are there as a guide for the task and you can print them out if you can/would like to. Otherwise, please just record your learning in your pink book however suits you.
We do ask that you send one piece of Maths and English learning to us each week via our email and we will indicate by the lesson which particular piece we would like to see. It would also be extremely valuable to see your project and science too, if possible.
Obviously, if you would like to send us more then we would love to see it. We are so grateful to see any of your wonderful learning!
Our email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
We would also really like to signpost you to our pastoral care page on our website.
This has been put together by our wonderful learning mentors and offers advice and support for any children and families that need support during this time:

Below we have created a weekly checklist. Throughout your week you can tick the activities off as you complete them to ensure you are on track. We understand only some families may find this useful so please feel free to use it however there is no expectation for it to be used.
Please see the attached reading comprehension sheet and book review.
Try this website for some free e-books that your children can read at home. You will be able to choose the book band that they are currently reading.
Times table and number bond practice:
Please use this website to help your children practice their number bonds to 10 (e.g. 3+ 7=10) and their 2,5 and 10 times tables. The children have used this game within class so should be familiar with it.
For the next few weeks we will be focusing on common exception words. These are words that don’t follow the phonic and spelling rules we have been learning so are learned by simply becoming more and more familiar with them through reading and spelling practice.
Below is the document with the ones we are focusing on this week.
There is also the full list of common exception words that are covered in both Year 1 and 2 for your information.
To hopefully make practicing their spellings more fun, here is a link to some spelling games they can also use to help them practice.
The link will take you to the full list of rules learned in Year 2 and common exception words are near the bottom. Of course, practice of any of the other rules is perfectly fine too!
Attached below is a template of questions to ask your children about the learning they have done the last few months. More information is attached. Please email us their responses this week.
Project: This is the first lesson of our new project 'What makes animals amazing?' We are going to be learning about how we can classify something as a living thing.
