# Year 2 Super Fun Maths and English Activities for the Holidays

The activities are designed to help with summer learning loss and cover key areas of the curriculum so your students can stay brushed up on their skills ready for the new academic year.

You can use these activities over the holidays with Home Access, which allows students to access EducationCity outside of school hours – a perfect time saver, as Activities and Tests will be automatically marked for you!

Why not set these activities in a MyCity? Allocate content to different students and track their progress over the holidays – achieving targeted learning couldn’t be easier!

Today we’re going to start off with Year 2 and continue tomorrow with Year 3 and then move on to Year 4. We hope you enjoy!
