Year 2: Ivy Class Mrs Briscoe

Home Learning in Key Stage 1


Topic work – every 2 weeks

Learning has been planned around our topics and covers a range of different curriculum areas. You will notice learning is split into three different sections, each one building on the other. The topic work will be updated every 2 weeks. All the resources you need can be found on the Class Page but if you require anything else please do get in touch.


Maths - weekly

Each week we will upload four maths lessons. These will help to revisit prior learning and also introduce new learning. The activity sheets will be uploaded every Friday for the following week. There is a learning video to accompany each lesson which can be found on the White Rose website - We have chosen aspects of learning based on what we feel the children need, rather than following the White Rose timetable. If you have any problems locating the videos please do let us know and we can provide further guidance.


Spelling - weekly

From Monday 8th June, we will be introducing weekly spellings on Spelling Shed for children in Year 1 and Year 2. Spelling Shed is a game based approach and has various levels of difficultly from ‘easy’ to ‘extreme’. Your child can select the level of difficulty but this does not change the spellings which have been set, just the level of support provided by the game. Once your child has signed in, there will be a button which takes you to your child’s spelling list.


New spellings will be unloaded every Monday morning and this will continue for the rest of this term. We would recommend your child practises their words at least three times per week.



If you require any support with home learning, please do let us know. The office will contact Mrs Lidbury, who will then get in touch with you directly. If you require any work to be printed please do get in touch.

Letter from Mrs Briscoe (10th May)


Dear Ivy class

Hello! I hope you and your families are safe and well.

I am going into school tomorrow with Mrs Hill. Although I am looking forward to it, I know it will feel very strange without all of you. I am sure that you have been very busy with your learning at home and trying to do your best. You all know that I have three children and they are all at big school. I have been trying to help them with their home learning. Some days we get on very well with our schoolwork and other days we find it more difficult. I am sure that it will have been the same for you, so don’t worry… just try your best!

If you can, do have a look at Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize. You can find lessons for Year 2.  I have looked at some of them and I think that you might enjoy them. You don’t have to do everything and remember that you can still go back to the ideas for home learning that I gave to you at the end of the Easter holiday. The most important thing is to read every day – to someone in your family or even your favourite teddy. Make sure that you make time to play – indoors and outdoors.

So, take care.

Best wishes,

Mrs Briscoe

Mrs Briscoe's Term 5 Ivy Learning

  • PE Day for Ivy is Wednesday
  • Swimming starts on Monday 2 March 2020
  • Always ensure your child brings their PE kit on Monday and leaves it at school until Friday when it can be taken home to be washed. Thank you.
  • Children should bring their reading book(s) everyday into school and do please ask your child’s teacher if your child requires additional books to read. Although the child may have a reading record book, there is no expectation that these are completed by the class teacher or teaching assistants. They are provided to enable communication about the child’s reading between parent/carer and class teacher if needed. Do not feel the need to comment yourself daily.
  • Homework is now limited to reading, spelling and times tables. Homework should be completed in short focused bursts – we know that it can become stressful and if we can support you in any way, please let your child’s class teacher know. In addition, if you have any problems accessing TTRockStars or SpellingShed do contact us.


A list of brilliant books that explore lots of different themes that you and your child could share together.
