CLASS 2
Suitable Websites and Activities

Here is a list of websites/weblinks suitable for Year 2.

Websites and links

Literacy

 https://www.learnenglishwhilelockedinyourownhome.com
Look carefully at sentence builder activities.
https://www.imdoingalifestretchliteracy.com
Great ideas for writing sorry letters.

Maths

 Arithmaquiz – https://www.candomaths.org/arithmequizks1.html

This very closely matches the questions in the Year 2 Arithmetic SATS paper. It can be done on the screen or you can click on whole paper and print it out. Working through some of these questions every day will really help keep the arithmetic skills sharp that we have been working on all year.

Ttrockstars – 2, 5 and 10 times tables

Times tables – https://www.timestables.co.uk/
More times tables practice through interactive challenges or worksheets which can be created and printed for free. You can do single times tables or do a mix of 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Once confident children can move on to 3 and 4 times tables.

Daily Ten – https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10 Level 2 of this programme covers learning we have covered this year in maths. There is no need to do the timed function of the questions. For Multiplication and Division the focus for Y2 is the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Once confident with these they can move onto the three times tables.

Hit the button – https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
Focus on Number bonds to 10, 20 and 100
Multiplication 2, 5 and 10
Division 2, 5 and 10

Top Marks – https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/5-7-years/
Top Marks has a range of excellent games for all Year 2 maths topics. We have covered all the Year 2 maths curriculum now so playing games on each of these topics will help to keep skills sharp.
