Year 2 CH and JM 2021 - 2022

Welcome to Y2CH and Y2JM

Mrs Cashmore, Mrs Harrison and Miss McCreesh would like to welcome all of our lovely children to their new class!  We hope you have had a fun-packed summer holiday and are ready for the new school year. This half term our topic is all about the Seaside.  We will be learning about what seaside holidays were like in the past - the children might ask you some questions about what holidays were like in the 'olden days'! We will also be finding out about Grace Darling and the very first lifeboats that were used.  In Science, we will be investigating different materials and finding out which ones make the best boat.  

If you have any questions for any of us, please email school at   enquiries@marlcliffe.sheffield.sch.uk  

Thank you for your support,

Y2 teachers 

Mrs Cashmore, Mrs Harrison and Miss McCreesh

 

Home Learning

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 w.b. 20.9.21

This week we are starting a unit of work based around Numicon, to support the children’s understanding of number. As a refresher, we need to remind the children of the look, shape and colour of each ‘number’ shape. To support your child, you could ask them questions based on the shapes, e.g. ‘How many holes does the yellow shape have?’, ‘What colour is five?’.

Think about how you would make 2 digit numbers with Numicon e.g. 14 would be one blue 10
shape and one green 4 shape
