Year 2 Home Learning | Carr Hill Primary School

Academic Year 2021/2022:

Hello everyone and welcome to a brand new year in year 2!

Below I have attached the recommended readings list for Year 1 and 2 – if you fancy a revamp of your own book collections! I have also attached the Year 1 and 2 common exception words that children should be able to read at the end of Key Stage 1.

Year 1 50 reads

Year 2 50 reads

Home learning will be set weekly. There will be spellings sent out in reading diaries and Mathletics task to complete. We still ask parents to read with their child each night. Please sign their reading diary when you have done this.

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Sweeney and Mrs Hemmings 🙂

Academic Year 2020/21:


Aamal, Teddy and Joshua have all earned a gold Mathletics certificate,

22 children received a silver Mathletics certificate


134 received a bronze Mathletics certificate. 

Home learning:

Before the May half term, Year 2 will be assessed on whether they can read and spell the Year 2 common exception words. I have attached a file here Common Exception Words Reading. Please can you practice reading and spelling these words with your children at home. I have attached a booklet your child an work through too. Please let me know if you would like one printing off and sending home 🙂 Common Exception Words Activities Reading and Spelling

I would also like to request the children practice their 2,5 and 10 times tables. There are plenty of online games like:

Any iPad games to support times tables are excellent too!

Lastly, it is essential each child read as much as they can at home. Please be sure to initial their diary when you have read with them each night.

If anyone needs any support on these areas please ask, I will be more than happy to help in any way I can.

Thank you for all of the continued support,

Miss Sweeney

Rainbow Reading Challenge:

Grimsargh St Michaels are looking for YOU to curl up with a good book and read your way to a certificate! Raising the profile of reading is something we are doing in school and let’s face it…. IT’S FUN TO READ. You can be transported to any  place and become any character you want! To get your Rainbow Reading Challenge certificate, all you need to do is read the colour or genre of book from each box, write in the book and colour it in! After you’ve done this for every colour your electronic certificate will be sent to you! What an achievement. So come on Year 2 – Let’s get reading!!
