Week 7 - commencing 18th May

Hello Year 2!

I hope you all had another lovely weekend and that you and your families are safe and well.


Welcome to week 7 of home learning - I hope you are ready for another fun week! 

I know it must feel a little strange not being in the classroom but I wanted to let you know how proud of you all I am. I think you have all been 'Amazing Astronauts' throughout the weeks since school closed.

I enjoy seeing your work every day so thank you for working so hard. Thank you to parents/carers for your support too, it is really appreciated.


Enjoy your half term next week -  hopefully the weather will be nice.

Stay safe, have fun and keep shining!


Mrs Horsgood

  • Practise your weekly spellings. (animal, metal, Monday, nothing, other)
  • Practise your times tables for 10 to 15 minutes on Times Tables Rock Stars.
  • Do 30-60 minutes of exercise (follow the PE link for ideas).
  • Complete the maths and literacy tasks.

PE with Derbyshire School Games

The School Games Organiser network and Active Derbyshire are working together to create and publish a weekly programme of activities to help children, just like you, to keep active whilst schools are closed and we are having to stay at home.

This week, they have created a series of activities around 'ORIENTEERING'!

Open the document below to find a daily activity and lots of tips and guidance on how to do it. There's a bit of a quiz to get you started, then each day, you'll find a challenge. If you keep scrolling down, you'll find instructions and helpful diagrams to show you what to do.

Why not involve your family? You can all keep active and develop your orienteering skills!
