Summer Holiday Activities Years 1 and 2
Over the summer holidays, we would like you to read every day for at least 10 minutes and then you can keep your brain sharp by doing some of these activities. Remember there are lots of free books online at oxfordowl.com and audible. You can always watch stories online too!
Practise numbers bonds to 20 for Y1 or 100 for Y2. Count as high as you can then count back to 0, measure something, count coins, sort objects, make patterns or go on a shape hunt. Count in steps of different numbers.
Go online and play some educational games. Try TT RockStars, Topmarks, BBC Bitesize, Purple Mash and Spelling Shed. You can also play phonics games on Phonics Play.
Practise writing and spelling your Y1 or Y2 Common Exception Words (they can be found online). Grab some paper and a pencil and look around your house for these words. How many can you find? Write these words in chalk on the floor, in steam on a mirror, using playdough, in paint or another fun way!
Write about what you have done in a summer journal.
Ask an adult to do a science experiment with you, Make an obstacle course in your garden or in the house (safely!) Go on a nature walk, paint a picture, learn a new song or dance! Make a junk model Create and act out your own play.
