Year 2 CH and JM 2021 - 2022

Welcome to Y2CH and Y2JM

This half term our topic is called Blooms and Bees!  What do you know about plants and animals?  Do you like to go on minibeast hunts? We'll be visiting our secret garden again to look for minibeasts and to find out where they live.  We'll be learning all about bees too.  We will also continue to improve our knowledge of maps by studying the geography of our school grounds. 

In Art we will be studying the work of artist Marianne North and will be learning how to use watercolour techniques using paint. 

We have also got our Jubilee celebration to look forward to next week! And don't forget our very exciting trip to the Butterfly House, which I'm sure, we are all very much looking forward to. 

We hope you have a great final half term in Y2 - we've so enjoyed teaching all of the children over the last year!! 

If you have any questions for either Miss McCreesh, Mrs Cashmore or Mrs Harrison, please email school at   enquiries@marlcliffe.sheffield.sch.uk  

Thank you for your support,

Maths

Each week we will send home a slip like this telling you about the main learning activities in Maths during the week and a suggested activity that you could do with your child to support his/her learning. The activities can also be found on the links below.

Maths Home Learning Summer 2 wk 3 w.b. 20.6.22

This week in Y2 we are recapping addition and subtraction. We will be using knowledge of number bonds for numbers to 20 to help with this. Please encourage your child to practise and learn addition and subtraction facts for numbers to 20 so that they can recall these quickly. E.g. 17 + 3 = 20, 13 + 5 = 18 and the inverse of these 20 -3 = 17, 18 – 5 = 13 etc.

To support your child with this, look for practical opportunities to add groups of objects to make numbers to 20 in different ways and work out the related subtraction. They could use strategies like counting on or back, using fingers and playing ICT games.

Here are some links to activities to help with this. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/addition/robot-addition
