Leicestershire Libraries Summer Reading Challenge!
From next week - week commencing 15th June, we are going to approach the Home Learning in a slightly different way which we hope will help to connect the curriculum together for children both at home and school.
- Each week will have a different theme and all home learning tasks have been designed to link together around this theme. It will be a project based approach, a little bit like the homework, where you will be able to pick and choose activities.
- In order to be consistent across the year groups, the same theme will apply to Years 2, 3, 4 and 5. This will mean that if you have children in different year groups, you can work together on the same project.
- English and Maths have suggested year group tasks, however, you can look at older/younger ideas as you wish. You might even have other ideas too- be as creative as you like!
- These tasks have been designed so that you do not need information printing off, all that is required are the basic resources to do the task. E.g. paper, pens, paints etc.
- An example timetable will be published each week but you can drop activities into the timetable to suit you as you wish.
We hope this new idea will be a new fresh start for some of you where the work is becoming a bit of a struggle.
Must do tasks
Must DO task will continue as before
Writing Must Do tasks will be based on the weekly theme and will be highlighted on the activity plan. These will also be available as a word document on the website.
Reading Must Do tasks will also be available as a separate document and again will be based on the weekly theme.
Maths Must Do tasks continue to be a consolidation of the key objectives for each year group and will be available as separate documents on the website. The activity plan also includes some additional Maths activities linked to the weekly theme.
We look forward to hearing your feedback and seeing your work by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Welcome to Year 2!
We have three classes in Year 2:
2RL - Mrs Lawrence, Mrs Blackburn and Mrs Wilson
2HP - Miss Pawley and Miss Liquorish
2MD - Miss Davies and Mrs Ford
We have PE on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and would appreciate it if children could have their kit in school on these days.
Children are encouraged to change their books regularly and a wide selection of books are available in each classroom.
Our Topics this year are:
Muck, Mess and Mixtures (Autumn 1)
Street Detectives (Autumn 2)
Land Ahoy and Beachcombers (Spring)
Tower, Tunnels and Turrets (Summer 1)
Beat, Band Boogie (Summer 2)
Spellings are given out each week on Fridays. In Year 2, children focus on the key spelling rules. These rules are then taught throughout the week and children have the opportunity to practise and apply these rules over the week and then they are tested on Fridays.
Just like in Year 1, children will be set fortnightly homework based arund the current topic See below for current homework and ideas.
