Haydon Abbey School and Pre-School

We plant the seeds and help them grow

Year 2

Year 2 Homework to be completed by 19 December 2018

Family Challenge

Theme (History and Geography)


Haydon Abbey is working hard to be greener and a big focus is on plastic!

Can you be creative with your plastic bottles? Can you repurpose them?

How about a hanging planter for the garden, a bird feeder to help them through the winter or artwork from the bottle tops.

We want you get as creative as possible and either bring in your creations or send photos to the office email, headed Year 2 Homework.

We look forward to seeing your ideas!


This half term, we will be learning all about the Great Fire of London.


Maybe you could write your own sensory or acrostic poem (for example, F.I.R.E or F.L.A.M.E) about the Great Fire of London.


Maybe you could create a ‘scene in shoebox’ of the Great Fire of London

In English, we are looking at the story ‘Where the Wild Things Are’.


This story is all about imagination and creating fantasy lands.


Try to create your own imaginative land using awesome adjectives to describe your land.


Include details about what creatures live there and why they live there.

Why would we want to visit or live there?

RE/ Music



At this time of year we often think more about others.

What do you do at home to show kindness and giving to others?

Do you or your family give up time to help others?


In class, we sometimes listen to classical music whilst we work. It would be lovely if you could have a listen at home too! Do you have a favourite piece of music? What do you like about it and why?

Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker is a wonderful place to start with a whole array of magical music. Disney have a film of it coming out soon which would be lovely to link the music too.

This half term we will be looking at shape, space and measure.


Maybe you could measure everyone at home with your hands or feet –who is the tallest? Smallest?


Can you create a picture using just the following:

2 circles, 3 squares, 1 rectangle and 4 triangles


We will also be continuing our ‘Multiplication Marathon’ each week, so will have a big focus on times tables.



This term, we are still looking the topic of ‘Materials’.


Be a material detective and investigate what materials your toys are made from. What do you notice?


Why not design a new slipper for Cinderella – can you think of a better material than glass?
