Year Two Team

Remote Learning


In the event of your child needing to self-isolate when they are feeling well in themselves or if they are required to self isolate due to track and trace, they will need to partake in remote learning to ensure they do not miss class based learning.


Children will receive a pack of learning to complete for the first two weeks of requiring remote learning, then weekly thereafter. If you require paper copies, we will happily provide these for you. A key focus for children of this age is their early reading skills. We teach this through phonics (letter sounds). Reading daily with your child on top of any other activities will really help your child’s development.


We have an expectation that your child will complete learning activities set. However, we do understand how challenging it can be at times to get your child to complete these. We do not want you to feel overwhelmed and under pressure to complete this. Minimising stress is absolutely vital in a time like this for mental health. Some great tips can be found later in this document to support you at home. We would aim for a maths, reading and writing session each day with one other activity.


Daily lessons will be provided accessible via zoom or via the private facebook group Mrs Emerson-year 2.

Please contact the class teacher directly if you have any questions


Children are to read from their own reading books or you can download and read free e-books from Oxford Owls. We will let you know what level your child needs to be reading.


In our English lessons we are reading a book called Counting on Katherine. You can find this story on the link below. We have been working through it and completing written tasks each day. Perhaps you could read it at home and discuss the story. We will pick this up in our live lessons.



Parents will be contacted via email regarding specific phonics focus for your child to practice whilst working from home.

Whiterose is the scheme of learning we follow in school for Maths, to support home learning Whiterose have produced daily lessons for all year groups to help teach and consolidate skills. These can be found following the link above. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child complete the activity successfully.


Timetables are crucial to helping children succeed in maths. There are many online games but we highly recommend PiXl which we use in school. Your child has a log in for this already but you will be required to download the APP.
