Year 2 Home Learning

End of summer term

Dear all of Year 2,

As you finish your journey with Rowanfield Infant School, we would like to take this opportunity to remember and celebrate all the times we have shared with you and all of your achievements over the past 3 years. 

Every teacher, teaching assistant and member of staff that you have known wishes you all the best for your next step into the Junior School.  Usually we would celebrate with an assembly but this year we have made you a video. 

We hope you enjoy it and take a moment to reflect on how far you have come.

You are all superstars 🙂

Love from all the staff at Rowanfield Infant School

Enjoy your summer holidays!

What is home learning?

With our school currently closed, many parents feel overwhelmed at the idea of ‘teaching’ their children from home.  Home learning is not teaching your child new content and feeling the pressure to be a replacement teacher.  Home learning should be fun, accessible and support your child’s overall development.  The main idea is to practise their skills daily and to nurture their curiosity for the world around them.  It all starts with a structured routine…

What should I be doing every day?

To support and continue your child’s develop through Year 2, your child should read, write with a pencil or pen, and exercise every day - like they do in school.  These are habits that should continue as much as possible to minimise learning loss when our school reopens.

Here is an example of a daily routine you could try:

Morning: eat breakfast together, get dressed, make the bed.

Morning: reading for pleasure – share stories together

Morning: stretch and PE (why not try Joe Wicks’ daily PE lessons)

Healthy snack (KS1 children usually break for 15mins at 10:30)

Weekly spelling practise and writing task (updated daily)

Free time – child’s choice – try to have free time yourself here too – you deserve a break!

Lunch (KS1 children usually have lunch for 45mins from 12:00-12:45)- eat together when possible.  Our children always socialise whilst they eat their lunch at school.

“Wake and shake” (use gonoodle, youtube or your own music for 10 mins of dancing)

Maths practise or challenge (updated daily)

Outside play (if available, and if not use this as free play time)

Choice grid activity (updated weekly)

Social time – call relatives, friends, colleagues – for a chat and a catch up

TV/screen time or free play – non-educational


Reading stories together

Bedtime (try to keep this a reasonable time to stick to structured routine and allow yourself a child-free rest in the evenings).

Do your kids enjoy a bedtime story?

Let a familiar voice read to them every now and again.  Josh Gad (the voice of Olaf from Frozen) is reading a bedtime story live every evening at 7:30pm on twitter.  If that’s too late for your children, you can save it and watch it the next day instead.  Follow @joshgad on twitter for more information.
