Home Learning Letter – Year 2

WB 04.1.21

Dear Parents/Carers,

Whilst learning from home, there will be a suggested timetable of activities for the children to complete each day. These are the activities that children would have completed if they were in school. We understand that learning from home looks different for each family, and so please use the timetable to suit your family. Please also encourage the children to keep active during this time – this may be by using ‘Just Dance’ videos or games in the house.

This post outlines work for Thursday 7th January­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­. Further guidance for the week will be uploaded in due course. When completing tasks, children can either do so electronically (via Microsoft PowerPoint or Word) or by recording work on separate sheets of paper or a notepad.

We will be setting two assignments via Teams a week, these tasks must be completed and submitted for feedback. If you have any technical issues when using Teams please contact the school office for support.

Please use the email year2@abbeyroadprimary.co.uk to contact the Year 2 Team at any point.



Use this power-point. The power-point is narrated and today we are focusing on Explanation questions. Children can answer orally or written and the answers are provided on the second slide.


This week our focus is poetry. Today we are discovering sounds with the ‘Sound Collector’. Click here for the Power-point 


This week our focus in on money. If you are unable to answer a question or print the sheets, please discuss the question, and do what you can for each without printing. Try using real coins to support this task and record any answers on a piece of paper or in a notebook. For today’s lesson, we are looking at counting in pence. Use the video below and then complete this worksheet. These worksheets increase in difficulty, therefore please work at your child’s own pace and ability
