Year1/2 SR 2020 - 2021

Welcome to Y1/2SR

Mrs Smith and Mrs Roach would like to welcome all the children back after a well-earned half term break.  

This half term our topic is called Real Life Superheroes.  What do you know about superheroes? Do you know any real life superheroes that have helped you?  We will be learning how to find out about real life superheroes from the recent past in our history lessons. Can you think of some ways we might find out about real life people? 

In Science, we will continue to observe the weather and seasons by visiting the secret garden. You can help your child by talking about what they notice about the changes in seasons.  This half  term Cool Chloe will help us to learn how to identify, classify and group food.  Book Boy will help us to carry out research about why exercise is important for us and Brilliant Betty will help us to make comparisons.  

In DT the children will be learning how to design, sew and evaluate their very own miniature superhero coat!  

If you have any questions or queries, please email school and your emails will be forwarded onto Mrs Smith and Mrs Roach. We will do our best to reply to emails as soon as we can.

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs Smith and Mrs Roach

Maths Home Learning 2020-21

Maths Home Learning w.b. 19.10.20

This week in Maths, we are working on recognising and describing the properties of 2D shapes.

If you would like to support your child in these activities, give them practical things to do like finding shapes in objects around the house e.g. how many rectangles can they see? (Window, table top, picture frame, mat etc.)

Y2s – say how many sides and vertices on each shape. Are the sides straight or curved?

 

Maths Home Learning w.b. 2.11.20

This week in Maths we are concentrating on the basics of place value. Try this:

Give your child two dice. Ask them to roll them to generate two digits. Which is the smallest number you can make? Which is the largest? If they are able to do this easily, use three dice and ask them to write down all the numbers they can make. Again, identify the smallest and the largest.

Y2s – Try using three dice and also identify what the number can be broken down into e.g. 346 is 300, 40 and 6.

Maths Home Learning w.b. 9.11.20

This week in Maths, we are continuing with place value, and understanding the value of each digit in a two digit number. We call this ‘partitioning’. For example, the 3 in 34 is worth 30 (or 3 tens) and the 4 is worth 4 ones, or units. The Y1s are orally describing the number e.g. “there are 3 tens and 4 ones in 34”. The Y2s are recording it like this: 34 = 30 + 4.

Work on numbers under 50 to start with, and extend if your child is confident. Y2s can go up to three digits.

Maths Home Learning w.b. 16.11.20

This week in Maths, we are using our place value skills to find solutions to puzzles and problems. If you would like to help your child, you could ask them questions such as “Think of an even number that is more than 30 and less than 50. Can you find one? Can you find them all? How many are there?” Repeat with other numbers under 50 (under 100 for Y2s, extending to over 100 when they are confident). Make sure that they explain their reasoning to you!
