They come with a Powerpoint, but don’t worry if you don’t have Powerpoint on your computer, all the activities are available on the PDF slides. There are also sheets which you can print off, but to save your paper and ink, you can simply write the answers in your Home Learner book.

Hello Class 2, in the links above (home learning additional worksheets) are some new home learning activities for you to be getting on with. I hope you are all okay! Don't forget to  email if you need anything at all! From Mrs Croome :) 

Hi Class 2. We hope that you and your families are all well. We are both missing you. It is very strange not seeing you in school everyday.

It has been lovely speaking to lots of you on the telephone over the past few weeks.

I have been updating the activities for your home learning over the past few weeks. Some of them can be done online, but some can be completed in your home learning book as well.

There is still a list of websites below that you can access. Remember to ask a grown - up's permission first and always follow the internet safety rules we have talked about in school.


Keep learning, keep laughing and smiling. Enjoy this time with your families. 

Stay safe and we will see you soon.   

From Mrs Croome and Mrs Shoesmith.

Use the information to create a tally chart and    pictogram. Ask your family questions about the pictogram. For example; which flower did you see the most?

PE with Joe:

Barnaby Bear. (This has some useful clips of travels to and around Scotland to support our ‘An Island Home’ topic, although he does not travel specifically to the Isle of Coll where the Katie Morag stories are set).

This link is about exploring a contrasting locality (Nigeria in Africa). In the summer term, we compare and contrast where we are growing up to Kenya in Africa. This will give you some knowledge about Africa and although it’s not the exact locality, it is still worth a look!


Welcome to Class 2. We have planned a very busy and exciting year. On this page you will be able to read about some of the activities that are coming up during the spring term.

 P.E is on a Monday afternoon.

Children will need their PE kit in school on this day. PE kit consists of a white T shirt, blue or black shorts and black PE pumps.

No jewellery should be worn on PE days.  

 Home Learning activities are sent home each Friday and need to be returned by Wednesday the following week. 

Children in Year 2 are learning to play the recorder and develop their singing skills. Music is taught each Monday in class.

 We have begun our Creative Curriculum topic 'An Island Home.' In Science we are learning about how objects can change their shape by forces being applied.    In Geography we are learning about Scottish Islands.  These lessons will be based around the Katie Morag stories.

 Our Year 2 Art lessons will focus on the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, using a range of lines and paint techniques.

Our Computing topic for the spring term is 'We are Researchers.' We will use iPads and laptops to research topics.
