Home Learning Autumn 1 Timetable

After Mr Johnson's announcement on 04/01/21 we will again be completing Home Learning. I will be posting activities daily to the school blog - just look on the Mr Bayliss page to save scrolling through all of the posts from other children and classes. I will also be posting useful resources and PDFs to this page under the appropriate heading. I will not plan an activity that requires a specific sheet but I know some families preferred to print activities for an idea of format, so the option is there. 


We can only do our best and as always if you have any issues, questions or require additional support please feel free to contact me on


Thanks, Mr Bayliss :)

Summer 2 Overview

Summer 1 Overview

Homework packs will be handed out (17.3.2020) in case of school closure.


We have focused on key Reading, Writing and Maths skills and children will be expected to dedicate at least 30 minutes to each of these subject areas a day. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you’d like to share your learning, my email address is



A key focus for Year 2 will be our number bond fluency using the NumBots app as well as times tables. There is an activity within your child's pack for 2, 5 and 10 x to support your child's learning as well as a Maths Jotter book to practice. Maths activities / tasks will be uploaded to this page dependent on how long we are closed for. Links for Numbots are listed below, if you are having trouble logging in or have forgotten usernames / passwords, please contact Mr Bayliss on the above email.



We have provided a full list of Year 2 'common exception words' to act as spellings and a handwriting focus. All the packs contain 'how to' activities for letter formation; this should act as a guideline and practice should not be limited to what is on the sheet. Children have a reading comprehension activity in their pack which is targeted at their reading ability, like Maths more will be posted in the eventuality that we are closed for an extended period of time. Other Literacy activities you could be completing at home include; writing a short story, a 'who am I riddle?' or writing a set of instructions. As well as the reading  comprehension activities to work through, please ensure that children continue to read a selection of texts for 20 minutes a day (library books, guided reading books, red book box books or any books you have at home). 



Children will be expected to complete one piece of topic work a week. Please see this page for links as well as the Knowledge Driver sheet on the website for homework ideas and links. 


I will continue to communicate via MarvellousMe, again if you are having trouble with this app please contact the above email.


Many thanks


Mr Bayliss
