Class 2 2020-21


Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed the half-term break.

In English we will be basing a lot of our work on a book called 'The Lonely Beast' by Chris Judge.

In Maths we will be learning our two times table and the associated division facts. We will be doubling and halving numbers and adding multiples of 10 to 2- digit numbers.

Our main topic is a History based one and we will be learning about transport and travel in the past. Our main focus will be on the Wright brothers and their invention of the first aeroplane.

We will be doing a DT topic called 'Fabric Bunting.' We will be making this Advent themed, in preparation for Christmas. We will be using templates, cutting, sewing and gluing.


Welcome back to Class 2. We hope you have a lovely holiday.

This half term we will be finding out about our new rules and routines. We will be talking about COVID 19 and how we can stay safe in school.

We will be revising some work from Year 1 to consolidate the learning that took place during Lockdown.

In English we will be writing in sentences and using capital letters and full stops.

In Maths we will be learning about the place value of numbers to 100. 

In Science our topic will be Animals including Humans. We will be finding out about how we can stay healthy and what we need to survive. We will also be looking at different lifecycles, including humans.

Our Geography topic will be called 'What a Wonderful World.' We will be finding out about the seven continents and the five oceans. We will be using maps and photographs to ask and answer geographical questions.


Class 2 2019-20

Welcome to the Summer Term!!!

We hope that you had a lovely Easter break - we can't remember the last time we had two such sunny and warm weeks at Easter! 

Before the holiday (and during for some), lots of you have been active on Seesaw, getting on with the tasks we have set for you and showing us other things that you've been getting up to. Well done, there's been some great work done!

We know that learning at home is very different to being at school, and it can be easy to feel overwhelmed, so we're keeping things simple this half term. Each day, we'd like you to do a Maths task and an English task, and then there are three Topic tasks to do during the week whenever it works well for you. Remember to Get Active every day - we have to get those hearts pumping to keep our bodies fit! We'd also like you to keep reading - every day if you can. It's so important!

The grids explaining this week's tasks are below, but further details and any necessary sheets or examples will be posted on Seesaw.

If there are any problems, please send an email to admin@burnleyroad.calderdale.sch.uk and we'll do your best to help you.


Cracking Coronavirus Home Learning!

What an interesting new learning challenge we have, Class 2!!! The Year 2 teaching team in school, and you at home. We are looking forward to us working, as the brilliant team we are, to keep you learning and improving during our time apart. You have all done so well this year - let's keep it going!

We have created a list of activities we would like you to do each day. If routine suits you, do them in the order they are listed each day, and take regular breaks. If you work well with things free and flexible, you can do the activities in any order you like, as long as you try to get them done! There is a guide to what you can do for each activity below the timetable. Similar to our homework grids, some things you may only do once, but others you can do lots of times (like Spelling Shed).

Monday - Friday
