New books from The Maginatian Press

The Magination Press write a range of books about families and how different all families are. They have wrote books and resources for talking to children about racial injustice.

 Book - Something Happened in Our Town - Something Happened in Our Town aims to answer children's questions and to help them identify and counter racial injustice in their own lives.

 Emma and Josh heard that something happened in their town. A Black man was shot by the police. "Why did the police shoot that man?" "Can police go to jail?"

 Read the story here - Book - Something Happened in Our Town 

Book - Lulu the One and Only - Discusses Family differences - But being a mix of Mama and Daddy always brings around THAT question. I hate THAT question. "What are you?"

Why not ask 'Who are you?'

Summer 2 - Week 5 Learning - 29.06.2020

Dear Year 2 and Parents,

We hope you all had a lovely weekend and received your letters from us through email. Thank you for the lovely responses we received from some of you.

If you did not get your letter, please send an email to

home.learning@ockerhill-inf.sandwell.sch.uk to your teacher and we will re-send them to you! We are looking forward to hearing from you very much.

It is close to the end of the school year but we hope you are all still trying hard with your work. Every piece of work you do, helps to keep all those fabulous skills and all the knowledge you have gained, fresh and secure in your mind. It is very important that you still try hard in your learning to make sure you feel more prepared for Year 3.

We still hope to see you soon and we don’t want you to forget how much you have all already achieved from September!

Love from

 Miss Clay, Miss Pickering, Mrs Beckett, Mrs Heath, Mrs Powell and Miss Stevens.

You can do all of the phonics phases if you want to but make sure you at least do the phonics phase you have been working on in school. 

I have added chillies to these SPaG mats from Twinkl, so you can decide what level of challenge you would like to go for. 

Take a look at the e book below, it has got an important message and story line, which is similar to the things your teachers would have been talking to you about at school right now. When you have finished, have a go at completing the transition activity below. Remember, if you need to, copy the activity out into your working book or on some paper. 

Here are some more maths word problems for you to complete, along with your weekly times table practice booklet. Make sure you are practising your times tables every single day.

Wednesday 1st July 2020

Good morning Year 2,

Take a look at your mid-week update. With 2 and a half weeks left in school, this is the time we would start to recap all of the learning that has taken place since September and delve a little deeper, taking extra time to explore. Try your hardest and if you need any help or have any questions just drop an email to your teacher at home.learning@ockerhill-inf.sandwell.sch.uk 

Keep smiling, we are looking forward to seeing you soon!

Miss Clay and Miss Pickering

This is one of my favourite stories! Watch and listen to Chris O'Dowd read this epic story. You will need Connor Concentration because there are lots of activities based around this story. 

Here is an example of a comic strip created for The Jungle Book.

Using the comic strip template below, see if you can create a comic strip for the story - Arnie the Doughnut. If you are working straight onto paper, see if you can copy out the template or create your own design like the template above. 

Using words from the story, create your own word search and see if someone in your home can find all of the words!

Take a look at the presentation below about partitioning and see if you can complete the questions.

Here are some maths revision activities for you to complete to make sure you are revising all the areas we have covered in Year 2. You will need these skills ready for Year 3.

You have learnt a lot about materials during the Spring term and Summer term. Look at the PowerPoint below from Twinkl, all about the scientist Charles Macintosh and see if you can complete the end of unit test on materials. Don’t peek at the answers until you have finished all of the questions!

VE DAY!

Victory in Europe Day, also known as VE Day, celebrates the Allied Forces accepting the Nazi’s unconditional surrender from World War 2. The final document was signed on 8 May 1945. Today, countries throughout the world celebrate VE Day every year.

In the UK, we generally celebrate VE Day with a 2-minute silence at 11 am. It gives us a chance to remember the sacrifice made by those who lost their lives and to reflect on the unimaginable pain and suffering caused by the war.

We have uploaded a PowerPoint for you from Twinkl about using tense, some fantastic posters with lots of great words that you could use in your writing and a diary checklist to make sure you stay on track. Remember how important diaries can be, for example, we learnt a lot about The Great Fire of London thanks to Samuel Pepys’ diary! Hopefully, we can share some of these when we are back to school. Keep up the good work.
