We had a virtual visit to Stonehenge and looked at the large stones. We discussed how they might have been moved. Then we had a go at making our own model .

Useful Websites for extra home learning


The BBC Bitesize website has useful resources and games for maths, literacy (including phonics) and science.

Another useful website with interactive games for all areas of the curriculum. The ‘Homework Help’ section is also helpful with information on many topics.

Packed with resources! We use some of the maths games to support mental maths practice for example. Many games and activities linked to all curriculum areas. Links to other useful websites are also on here. You can search by subject or Key Stage


A website with many games linked to different areas of literacy learning.

A website children are familiar with as we use it in school. It links to the phonics phases and has some very good games for helping to consolidate phonics skills.

Another site useful for phonics games and printable activities

Another useful set of games related to literacy/phonics. I especially like Airport X-Ray, Premiership Words and Silly Bull.

Useful reading/phonics games with many areas of learning e.g. alphabetical order, all phonic patterns, rhyme.

Lots of good ideas for supporting with punctuation and other sentence level learning.


Some of the same games also on Top Marks website. Lots of excellent ideas for practising mental maths skills.

There is a small subscription to this website although many games you can try for ‘evaluation’ and can play anyway. I really like ‘Table Mountain’ for learning times table facts.

Excellent series of games and activities linked to all areas of mathematics. We have used some of the money activities and always use the large hundred square – excellent for supporting all calculations and counting activities.

Erasmus week Wake and shake and treating our friends from Hungary to a great British afternoon tea!

Welcome to year 2 Kingfishers class.

What a fantastic start the children have had in year 2.  They have shown a great attitude towards their learning.  We are both very proud of the way they are coming into school on their own each and settling down straight away to start the day.


Children will continue with their daily RWInc (phonics) sessions.

PE sessions will be on a Monday and a Wednesday but children need their PE kit in all week.

For this half term we will also be playing games to help us with our listening skills.


Children need to bring their reading books and diary into school daily.  They will have home learning sent home on a Friday to be returned to school the following Wednesday.

Please see us either before or after school if we can be of any help.


Mrs Bates and Mrs Mair
