Hello Year 2,
Here are a few photographs of the classroom. It is all ready and set up ready for you to come in to on Thursday. I am looking forward to seeing you all and I know we are going to have an amazing year. I don't want you to have any worries about coming back to school but if you do, you can write these down and we can go through them on Thursday morning.
See you soon,
Mrs Haynes and Mrs Shaw
Good morning Year 2
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.
I have been busy this weekend- on Saturday I went to the Peak District for a walk. It was very windy.
your challenge this week is to take lots of photographs whilst you’re out and about of yourself reading. Don’t forget to email them in to the office and I will put them all on the website.
Here is my photograph :)
Wowzas, Libby! Look at that writing!
Some amazing pieces of home learning! What good examples! Keep it up-proud of you :)
What a fantastic piece of home learning. Proud of you :)
Any work for children at home that is put on to class pages will be to print off at home only.
Due to health and safety issues we will not be providing paper copies for children at home.
You can put your answers on a sheet and take a photo to send in or put them onto a word document and email in.
I hope you are all safe and well Year 2! I am looking forward to seeing you all soon.
Each time you spot and adjective can you improve it?
The girl was big...
Improve it to:
The girl was enormous.
Can you find what the most popular fruit is in your family?
Think about how you would gather this data and how you would present it. Remember that each person has one vote!
Common exception words:
read them, spell them and write them in sentences.
How many can you spell correctly?
Can you spot any of these in your reading books?
Due to updated government guidance we can no longer provide additional reading books for home. Please read the books you have, look at magazines, share stories from your bookshelf and use our online links to support your child’s reading.
Any books returned to school will be left in a box until we can clean them for the safety of staff and pupils. Many thanks for your continued support in these difficult times.

Good morning Year 2- I hope you are all safe and well.
This time last year I was celebrating my wedding day. It was a fantastic day that really made me happy. For your Literacy this week, can you think of a day that really made you happy and write a recount all about it. Remember to write it in time order and add in all the extra detail that informs your reader. Don't forget you can send these in to the school office so I can read them :)
Good morning Year 2!
I hope you have had a lovely weekend in the sunshine. I celebrated my birthday on Saturday and it was lovely in the sunshine.
Your photograph collage has made me smile this morning. Hopefully not much longer until we can be back in class.
This weeks home learning:
Let's look at time. Can you recall how many seconds in a minute/minutes in a hour/days in a week/ months in a year/ hours in a day etc.
Can you tell the time at different parts of the day. Could you write sentences to show what you do at different times of the day?
What is a super hero? Can you write about a super hero and tell me all about them? It could be someone who you know, someone famous or it could be a imaginary character. You could research them and draw them. Tell me why they are a super hero and what they do.
This week can you focus on expression? When you are reading can you change your voice to suit the characters?
Look at these fantastic pieces of writing from Lucas Alexander!
Super work, Lucas! :)
Keep it up!
Good Morning Year 2
I hope you have all had a good weekend. Here is some home learning ideas for this week:
Can you write a newspaper report all about the change in everyday life in the last 6 weeks?You could do some role play and interview your family members to see how it has affected them and how they feel about it all. When you write up your report-remember to use your features: Title, heading, photo, caption, 5 W's, more information. Can you think of a headline that will make your reader want to read your report?
Think about 2D and 3D shapes. Can you recognise any in your environment? When you spot them can you draw them and describe their properties? Could your adult give you clues for you to guess the shapes?
Whilst reading your favourite reading book, can you identify the adjectives? Make a list of these and then have a go at writing them in your own sentences.
What can you find out about Dunlop, Mackintosh and MacAdam and the materials they developed? Present this in any way you like.
Don't forget to send your learning into the school office :)
See you soon,
It's lovely to see more home learning Year 2! I love receiving your emails.
Keep up the good work!
Home Learning: Week commencing 27.4.20
Numeracy-Can you add and subtract 2 two digit numbers? We focused on this quigte a lot in class and looked at the methods whilst we did our 5 a day. Can you remember which methods to use? Choose 2 two digit numbers (or you could ask an adult to write you some out) and have a go at adding and subtracting them.
Literacy-Can you plan and write a story that begins with the opener 'I was walking along when suddenly I fell down a hole...a big, dark hole!' Remember to engage the reader and think about your beginning, middle and end. I can't wait to read them.
Science-While you are out and about, have a look at all the living things around you. Can you see any new life? Choose a living thing and create a life cycle for it. You can present this in anyway you like.
Reading-Choose a book to read and answer these questions...What is the book about? Who are the characters? What was the problem in the story? How was it resolved? How was the main character feeling throughout the story? Why is this?
Hope you are all safe and well Year 2.
See you soon,
Here are some ideas to have a go at this week, Year 2!
Literacy-Can you write a diary entry of what you think you will do once this lock down is over? Think about what you will do, where you will go and who you will see. How do you think you will feel? Do you think you'll be grateful for anything? I look forward to reading them.
Maths-Have a look at money. Can you recognise all the coins? What coins make up different totals? If you went to the shop to buy different items-can you work out how much change you will receive?
Reading-Can you find a poem to learn and recite? Could you add actions and expression? You could practice this and perform it for your family. Could you record this and send it to other family members to make them smile :)
Science-Have a look at the different objects in your home-what are they made from? Why do you think they are made from this material and not another one? What are the material's properties?
Remember any home learning that you have been doing, you can send in to our school office :)
See you soon Year 2

Missing you all-see you soon
Good morning Year 2!
How are you all? I hope you are safe and well. I have added a few ideas to keep you busy but remember to keep having fun too. I am missing you all!
Today KS1 welcomed grown ups in as part of our Inspire Day. Our task was to design and make a suitable outfit for the Yetti in 'Betty and the Yetti'.
We had all the resources ready and our grown ups and children got to work. Some fabulous outfits were made!
Our 'Parent Feedback Forms' stated:
"Would love to do more of these activities."
"This was enjoyable for both of us."
"Thank you for having us! P.S-Your job is tough!! Difficult to negotiate with little people not easy!! Thank you for all that you do!"
Happy New Year!
I hope everyone has had a fun-filled Christmas break. We are ready to jump straight back into learning in Year 2!
This half term our new exploration is:
'What makes the world alive?'
We carried out a science experiment to see which material is waterproof! We discussed how we could make this a fair test and we all made a prediction.
Class of the Week!
We had a very exciting visit from Dearne FM. For that week we were class of the week on the radio. He interviewed us and asked us all about Life at Summerfields Primary Academy.
Did you hear us on the radio?
We love using the resources to help us with our learning.
We had lots of fun celebrating Diwali!
We made Rangoli patterns, chapatis and candle holders made out of clay.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
I hope you've all had a wonderful time in the snow so far, I know I have!
While you are unable to get into school I would like you to try and do one (or more!) or the following activities.
1. Draw a picture and write some sentences describing what you have been doing in the snow. See if you can include all the sentence types (statements, exclamations, questions and commands).
2. Try and make some shapes (2D and 3D) in the snow. Take some photos or draw some pictures of what you have made. How many shapes can you make?
3. Build a snowman or a sculpture in the snow. Take some pictures to bring in to show your friends. You could even write some instructions on how you built it to share with the class!
4. If it's been too cold for you to play outside have a go at this activity! Imagine you meet someone who has never seen or felt snow before - how would you describe it to them? Write some sentences, don't forget to include all your senses.
Enjoy the rest of the snow and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday.
Welcome to Year 2!
