Class 2

Welcome to the Class 2 School Closure page.

As schools are not yet open, we will continue updating our class page with suggested learning activities, ideas and resources.


Every week you will find 5 English tasks, 5 Maths tasks, 5 Topic tasks, spellings and basic skills/ mental maths activities.


Whilst we are not expecting you to replicate school at home, it will be important that you all try to do some learning each school day to keep up the skills you have learned in school. Make your own choices about how you present your learning and just try and do what you can. Not all days will go to plan and you might not always be able to sit and complete the tasks quietly for the allocated time so pick and choose which activities you would like to do. Try to focus on and complete a couple of the tasks each day but still be creative and explore and use your own ideas for learning at home too.  Whatever you decide to do, it would be wonderful to see some of it so please keep sending me things to look at!

A printed booklet will also be available for you to collect from the school office every week if you would like one. The booklet contains a selection of English, Maths, Topic, Spelling/handwriting tasks and basic skills maths tasks. You may find having the printed booklet easier if you are having difficulties accessing the internet at home. There is no expectation that you need to complete both the booklet and online tasks. Here are the booklets for you to see.

Staying fit and healthy

During your time at home it is really important for you to stay fit and healthy. Even if you are indoors more than usual try doing some daily exercise to keep yourself active. Try an interactive workout with Joe Wicks every weekday morning at 9 o'clock. You could get some family members to join in with you!
