Class 2 – Year 1 / 2

Teacher: Miss Parry

Welcome to Class 2's web page!

Our topic this term is "Our Feathered Friends". In geography, we will be learning about birds in our local area. We will also be taking part in the "Big Garden Birdwatch". In art, we will be exploring the artwork of Lynn Norton and creating our own artistic bird paintings.

Active 30 will continue to be every day. Please make sure PE kits are clearly labelled and in school every day. This term we will be going swimming! So please bring your towel and swimming costume every Friday in a separate swimming bag.

Reading books will be changed every Tuesday and Friday. Children on Accelerated Reader are able to take a short test on their book and choose a new book whenever they need to. Please read with your child every night where possible, as this will help them to become confident readers. I would encourage you to read a variety of books in order to develop a true enjoyment of reading.

Home Learning

Updated 4th May 2020
I've added lessons, activities and a suggested timetable for this week. You do not need to complete every activity if you don't wish to – please use this as a guide.

I've added a number of worksheets and activities available to download and complete at home with your child. Please see the files section of this page.
Your child will also go home with a "Learning Pack". This is also available within the files attached.

Children have also been given their Spellingshed login (Year 1 and 2) and TT Rockstars login (Year 2). Both these apps are free to download and will help children with their spellings and times tables.

Please see the list below for useful websites that will help with home learning.

If you want to share any of your home learning with me, then please send me an email. Include anything you want to ask or share – comments, pictures, photos and questions! The temporary class email is

White Rose Maths
We highly recommend using this home learning resource from White Rose to help teach your child maths at home to suit their specific year group. There are five daily lessons for each week and they provide audio teaching and related worksheets free to download for your child to complete. They suggest to spend between 20-30 minutes on each daily session.
