Welcome Notes: Spring 1

First of all, Mrs Roach and I would like to welcome you back after the Christmas break. We hope you've had a restful and festive time and are ready for some more fun learning! 

This half term our topic is called Busy Bodies!   We will be learning all about the human body and what different parts are called.  We will find out how humans and other animals grow and change from birth to adulthood.  We will also be finding out what the babies of different animals are called.  In Art lessons, we will be learning how to draw self-portraits. Do you know any famous artists that did self-portraits?

On our class web page, you can find out lots of information about our class. We'll be putting suggestions for how you can support your child in Maths on the 'Home Learning' section and will showing off your lovely work on our 'Blog' page.  Just click on the links to see them.

We will be happy to answer any questions you may have, but as you can appreciate we are often busy welcoming children into school in the morning. However, we are happy to make arrangements to speak with you at another time.

Thank you,

Mrs Smith and Mrs Roach

Please keep an eye out for Parentmail communication from us. Hard copies of spellings and Maths letters are sent home on a Monday; please check your child's drawer if they don't make it back! Feel free to change your child's reading book in the drawers upstairs, near to the Reception base.

 

 Home Learning

Maths Home Learning week beginning 13.1.20

This week we are learning how to solve division problems practically and record them as number sentences.  If you would like to support your child with this, you could suggest practical sharing activities for them to do.  For example, sharing out a bunch of 18 grapes equally between 2 people and counting how many each person gets, or sharing 20p between 4 people. 

Y2s – don’t forget to keep practising your 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Extend to the 3 times table if you are confident.

Maths Home Learning week beginning 20.1.20

This week in Maths, the children are continuing to practise multiplication and division. If you would like to support your child in these activities, please continue to practise the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, in order (1 x 2 = 2, 2 x 2 = 4, 3 x 2 = 6 etc.) and out of order. Try asking ‘switchers’ as well, e.g. 5 x 7 as well as 7 x 5. If you are feeling brave, you could try the related division facts of each times table.

Y2s – you can try division fact for the 3 times table as well. 

Maths Home Learning week beginning 27.1.20

This week in Maths, the focus is on money. We are recognising coins and their worth, combining coins to make an amount and finding different combinations of coins that equal the same amount of money. If you would like to support your child, please look at real life coins with them and involve them in small shop transactions. There are also some good activities at http://www.topmarks.co.uk/Flash.aspx?f=coins to work through.

Y2s – we would like you to add up coins up to £1 (and over if you can).

Maths Home Learning week beginning 3.2.20

This week in Maths, the focus is still on money. We are concentrating on finding different combinations of coins that equal the same amount of money (trying to use the least coins possible as the first combination), for example 20p can be made using a 20p coin, two x 10ps, four x 5ps, a 10p and two 5ps etc. If you would like to support your child, please continue to involve them in small shop transactions. There are also some good videos at https://www.bbc.com/bitesize/topics/zp8dmp3 to watch.

Y2s – we would like you to think about calculating change from 20p and then 50p.
