YEAR 2 HOME LEARNING
This is where you will find set learning activities for children in self isolation or in the event of a school closure.
For each week, there are set learning activities linked to:
- Spelling shed which mirrors learning in the classroom
- Maths learning through mathletics
- There is also a wider curriculum grid with project based activities that link to our last theme of Knights and Castles.
All learning that is completed can be done so in the 'Home Learning' book (green exercise book) that children brought home in the last week of school. Spelling shed, mathletics and timestables rockstars will all be monitored on line.
On top of these set activities, there a range of home learning tasks for reading, writing, maths and science. These are in PowerPoints and give short tasks in each of the above areas. These are for children who would like additional learning suggestions for at home.
Mrs Stansfield and I wish you all a happy half term. Enjoy your time with your families and we'll see you back at the start of next term with some more exciting learning based on Knights and Castles.
This week we have been looking at finding the difference between two amounts. This is a challenging concept in year 2 but we worked hard using number lines to count on from one number to the next. This then helped us to find change.
When we came in on Monday morning it was obvious that someone had been in our classroom over the weekend. We found lost of dirty socks and all of our Math resources were in a mess. We counted the socks in twos to work out how many bare feet had been in our classroom and we had to put all teh unifix cubes back into sticks of 10.
This week the children have been exploring the feelings of the Lost boys through drama. They came up with some fantastic vocabulary such as 'courageous' and 'hopeless'. They then added this to their character descriptions. The children improved their simple sentences by adding 'because'. We then explored the features of a Wanted Poster and used our descriptions to create one to put up around school. We hope we find the lost boys.
