Year 2 Home Learning – 13.2.20

This week, we read a book called ‘The Trouble with Dragons’. It told the story of how dragons were ruining the planet and not looking after the environment! This story led to discussions, which made us think about the things that we could do to help look after our environment.

Over the half term, make a poster, write a list or even take photographs of all the different ways that you help to look after our environment. Try to include other things that you may not be doing, but would like to try.

Do you recycle paper or plastic? Do you walk or cycle to school? How do you try to save water?

To help you, research online for more ideas or even visit your local library to find more information!

Have a lovely half term!

Traditional Korean Clothes

On Friday, 2T were very lucky because Mrs Sim brought in some of her personal Korean clothing for the children to try on.

Mrs Sim kindly explained to the class when and where Korean adults and children would wear this special clothing. She explained what fabric the clothes were made from and how all of the clothes were handmade. Mrs Sim also let us look at her very special handmade wedding garments.

Year 2 Home Learning – 30.1.20

Next week we will be practising our multiplication skills in Maths.

This week try practising your 2, 5 and 10 times table. You could show someone at home the dance that we have been using to help us.

You may want to play this game to practise identifying multiples of 2, 5 and 10.

You can play this game to test how quickly you can answer multiplication questions.

Here is a song to also practice counting forwards and backwards in tens.

Don’t forget to practice couting forwards and backwards in tens from any number. eg. 78, 68, 58, 48…

Year 2 Home Learning

This week in Maths we have been learning to add on the blank numberline.

To help us secure this skill and improve our mental calculation skills we need to be able to quickly add and subtract numbers to 20.

This week practice adding these numbers. Can your number bonds help you? Are there any other strategies you have.

If you know 10 + 7 = 17 Can you use a different combination of numbers to make the same answer?

e.g 10 + 5 + 2 = 17 5 + 5 + 5 + 2 = 17 11 + 2 = 17

Y2 – Great Fire of London Theatre Group

Today Year 2 not only saw a fantastic production about The Great Fire of London but also acted in it too!!!

We went to the hall filled with excitement and anticipation and was met by Samuel Pepys himself!!!

We watched a little bit of the performance and then it was our chance to take part. The children acting skills were amazing and really brought the event to life.

Can you use the photos below to tell someone at home about the production? What part did you play? Can you remember who all the characters were?
