Year 2 Covid Home-Learning
Please find a timetable with learning opportunities below. Please email us on the Y2 support page if you have any questions, and we would love to see your child's work each day. Reading is still the number one activity to do at home that can help with your child's overall education. 10 minutes reading to an adult can help maintain your child's reading skills. Please see information about reading below.
Miss Fraser will be live on Teams every day at 10am, and on a Wednesday at 3pm!

There are a number of free e-books on the Oxford Owl webpage. There are also some great apps such as Reading Eggs or Teach Your Monster To Read. When reading aloud, we want to aim for all the children to gain fluency. They can practise this by re-reading sentences that they had read previously. It is important to check that your child understands what they are reading by asking them questions such as,
What happened on this page? Why did the character do...? Why do you think that happened? What do you think will happen next? What word did the author use to describe …….?
