Year 2 Home Learning 25.04.19

This week we have been using money to problem solve. Look at the coins below, can you name them all?

Imagine you are going to the bakery. You have 1 silver coin. What items could you buy? What if you chose a different silver coin, what could you buy then?

Choose 2 items or 3 items from the bakery. How much would they cost altogether?

*Challenge* – Can you find change? Choose a silver coin and then choose an item to buy. Use an empty numberline to subtract the price from the amount of the coin.

E.g: Use the numberline to say the answer below.

Home Learning-Easter Holidays

Hello,

Over the holiday, don’t forget to read lots. You could make a list of the books you have read and share them with your class when you get back.

Practise counting in twos, fives, tens and threes and try having a go at learning your times tables.

If you visit anywhere special, you could write about your visit, ready to share with the class when you get back. Don’t forget to use capital letters and full stops!

We hope you all have a restful Easter Holiday.

Year 2 Home Learning 28.03.19

This week in Year 2 we have been practising telling the time.

We looked at the minute hand and hour hand. We have been talking about where the minute hand is for o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to times.

Can you use your fantastic maths vocabulary to tell someone at home the time on the clock and how you know?

Record things that you do at certain times.

*Challenge – Can you record the time that you started an activity and then the time it ended. How long did the activity take you?

E.g – Miss Spicer started cooking dinner at 6 o’clock. She was ready to eat at quarter to 7. How long did it take her to cook her dinner?

Year 2 Handwriting

In Year 2 we have been practising cursive writing. You could watch the video below to help when you are practising at home.

Look carefully for where the letters start and where they end. Do they have ascenders (parts that go all the way to the top of the line, e.g b, d, h)? Do they have descenders (e.g p, q, y)?

What is your favourite letter to write and why?

Home Learning 21.3.19

Hello Year Two,

Next week we will be learning about time. Practise at home what an o’clock, quarter past and half past time is. If you already know, can you work what a quarter to time would like like?

What number would the big hand be on?

What about the small hand?

How about telling the time in five minute intervals? What does 5 past 10 look like? Or 25 to 3?

Let us know how you get on.

Home Learning 7.3.19

Hello Year 2,

Next week we will all be learning about 3D shapes. We will also be discussing their properties too. We will look at how many faces, vertices and edges each shape has.

Look around at home and see what items you can find that are the same shape as the 3D shapes above in the poster. Can you count how many faces, vertices and edges there are?

Here are some ideas.

Perhaps you could comment below and tell us what shapes you have found.

Year 2 Home Learning 28.02.19

This week we have been learning the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

For your home learning use the class story map to retell the story to someone at home.

You could ask someone at home some questions about the story;

Who is your favourite character?

What part do you like the most/least? Why?

If you could talk to one of the characters what would you say to them?

Home Learning 15.2.19

When we come back from the half term holiday we will be reading the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Little Red Riding Hood is a traditional tale. Your home learning over the holiday is to read as many different traditional tales as you can!

You could try reading:

Jack and the Beanstalk

Cinderella

Rumpelstiltskin

Sleeping Beauty

The Three Little Pigs                  to name a few!

After you have read some stories, think about which one was your favourite and why. We will be asking you all after the holiday.

Have a great half-term.

Today Year 2 took part in a fantastic immersive theatre experience!
