Please see below for lots of links to support short-term home learning. You may wish to access some of these links if your child is at home self-isolating or awaiting a test result. We will change these activities weekly to ensure they are relevant for our learning in class.
There is a topic grid with lots of activities outlined.... our current topic is China!
The topic grid includes English tasks. There is a separate post for Maths.
Maths- Week Beginning 04.01.21
This week we will be beginning by re-capping our addition and subtraction methods. There are pictures below that show you how we calculate this in Year 2. Most children should be confident with these methods.
Here are some questions to complete on paper to practise:
8. 83-24= ( this is a challenge question- your children should know how to exchange ....1 ten for 10 ones to work this out.)
We will also be moving on this week to looking at division...
Firstly we look at what this means, sharing- equally and the symbol ÷ , as this can be new to some children.
Next.... we need to learn how to share practically. At home find some objects you can use to share (pasta twists, counters, sweets, etc).
Practise sharing between 2 first. So count out for example.. 12 objects (sweets etc) and share between 2.... how many each= 6. This calculation would be 12 ÷ 2 = 6.
Continue to practise more examples like this practically. Once this is secure the children are now ready to try out our calculation method (picture below).
Looking at the calcuation: 18÷ 2=
Children will draw 2 circles as they are sharing between 2. Then they will share out across both circles equally, one at a time ... the answer is how many is in one circle.
