Welcome to 2R and 2S

Hi everyone,


We really hope you’re well and making the most of your time at home.  We hope you are managing to complete some learning at home and can’t wait until we are all back at school learning together. 


From next week we will upload the work we set each week onto the website so please scroll to the bottom of the page for each week’s learning.  Alternatively, you can collect a printed pack which will be left in the school office, along with some library books you can borrow.


As well as the work we are providing, you might be looking for more resources to support your child or children with their Learning. Here are some ideas below.




We will be providing 4 lots of Arithmetic questions each week for children to complete.  They would normally spend around 15 minutes on these at the start of their Maths lesson.  There are an additional four Maths sheets for them to complete which again will be attached to this page or printed as part of their packs if you wish to collect them from school.  The Maths sheets are from the White Rose website.  Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully. If you click on the link below you can access these great learning resources. They also have the answers so the children can mark their own work.


As many of you are aware, every child at Seven Sisters Primary has a Mathletics account. Mathletics is a fantastic resource for your child to use at home if they have access. It would be great if you could set aside some time every week to have a go at some of the learning activities and games they provide. We have also attached a copy of the times tables they are expected to learn by the end of year 2 (x10,x5,x2 and x3) and provided some useful websites.


As always with Maths, children often learn best through fun, practical activities.  These are a few things you may want to have a go at.





We will upload English work every week.  This will include some reading comprehension, some SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar), handwriting practise and one longer writing task per week.


Please see the attachments at the bottom of the page.


If you are looking for extra English work we recommend these websites..


Our topic this term would have been ‘Let it Grow’.

Here are some ideas for you to do at home.




Can you draw and label a plant and write a sentence under each part explaining what it does? e.g. The leaves make food for the plant.


Write about what a plant needs to grow.


Can you write some instructions for how to grow cress?





Learn why trees are being cut down and where in the world it happens.

Please see the PowerPoint below to find out more.







We would have been looking at the artist Vincent van Gogh so would like you to research him and write down any key facts you learn.


Where was he born? What was his most famous painting?

Then, look at some of his artwork. What colours are used? How does the painting make you feel?


Finally, have a go at recreating one of his paintings.




Craft ideas



Collect seeds and create one of these collages.






By creating flaps you can write the extra information underneath the labels.
