Year 2 Home Learning - Week 7 (18th May - 22nd May 2020)

Here are a list of suggested activities to get you started in your home learning this week.

Our theme of the week: COLOUR!


  • The festival of 'Holi' is also known as the 'festival of colours'. Find out more about this exciting festival and show what you found in a poster or fact file..
  • Use your 5 senses to write a poem about your favourite colour. E.g. 'Blue smells like the salty sea crashing against the shells'.
  • Listen and watch Mr Tumble sing the colours of the rainbow. Can you learn the song in Makaton signs and symbols? 

  • Write a list of colours you expect to find in your garden or outside on your daily walk. Use a tally chart to help count the items of each colour you find. What did you find most of? What did you find least of? Why do you think this is?
  • Write a fact file about how trees change colour over the four seasons.
  • Design a new football kit for your favourite football team or school uniform for your school - What colours will you choose? Why? Do they have a special meaning?
  • Collect coins from around your home - group and sort them according to their colours. What is the total of each group? What happens if you double or halve this amount?
  • Create your own 'colour by numbers' for a family member to colour.
  • Research flags of different colours - Can you find out why the colours were chosen? Then design and make your own colourful flag to represent your family.
  • Research Rangoli patterns to celebrate Diwali. Use a range of media (e.g. pens, paints, chalk) to make your own.
  • Experiment mixing colours together to make your own colourful firework picture.
  • Can you find out what the colours of the Olympic rings mean?
  • Science Walking Rainbow Experiment: - remember to make a prediction and observe what happens closely.

Computing home learning:

I wonder how many of you can remember the different parts of the computer. Have a look at the video and then try drawing a picture and labelling the different parts.

Have fun! ​

PSHE home learning:

This week is mental health awareness week! So your challenge is to keep a kindness diary of all the kind acts you do this week. Will you... share your favourite toys with a brother or sister? Will you help your grown ups to wash up after dinner? Make your bed? How many more acts of kindness will you do this week?
