Year1/2 SR 2021 - 2022
Mrs Roach and I would like to welcome you all back after the Easter holidays. We hope you've all had a good rest and managed to do lots of exciting things.
This half term our topic is called Made in Sheffield! What do you know about Sheffield in the past? How does it compare to Sheffield now? We will be exploring how life has changed for children now compared to the life children had in the 1800's.
In our science lessons, we will be visiting our secret garden again to observe the changes that have happened since the beginning of spring. We will also be learning about the famous Sheffield scientist Helen Sharman and her amazing achievements!
In DT we will be exploring and using mechanisms in industrial pictures of Sheffield.
We have also got our Jubilee celebration to look forward to later on this half term - more details to follow!
We hope you have a great half term,
If you have any questions for either Mrs Roach or Mrs Smith, please email school at email@example.com
Thank you for your support,
Mrs Smith and Mrs Roach

Maths Home Learning 2021-22
Maths Home Learning w.b. 16.5.22
This week in Maths, we are revisiting how to solve division problems practically and record them as number sentences. If you would like to support your child with this, give them real life situations where division is important e.g. at tea time, sharing potatoes equally between members of the family. Ask how this could be recorded as a number sentence. You should be looking for answers such as “12 shared by 4 is 3” or “12 divided by 4 people equals 3 potatoes each”.
Y2s – give them problems with remainders. If there are no remainders. can they say what fraction each person gets?
Maths Home Learning w.b. 23.5.22
This week the children will be applying everything they have learned so far to revision questions (Y1s) and SATs questions (Y2s). To help with this, please practise the following key skills with them:
- counting in 2s, 5s and 10s
- number pairs to 10 and 20
- doubles and halves up to 20
- partitioning numbers into 10s and 1s (e.g. 24 = 2 tens and 4 ones or units)
- recognise and name 2D and 3D shapes
Maths Home Learning w.b. 6.6.22
This week we are finding the additive inverse of addition and subtraction number sentences. For example, can we write 6 + 3 = 9 in a different way? (3 + 6 = 9). Can we use the same numbers to make a subtraction number sentence? (9 – 6 = 3). Can we write that a different way? (9 – 3 = 6).
The Y2s are also using simple number facts to help them solve number sentences with bigger numbers. For example, if we know that 6 + 3 = 9 then we should also know that 16 + 3 = 19 or to go even further, 160 + 30 = 190. Can we write these number sentences another way? (3 + 16 = 19, 19 = 3 + 16 etc.).
What about if we made each number in 6 + 3 = 9 ten times bigger? What would we make then? (60 + 30 = 90). Can we write this another way?
Maths Home Learning w.b. 13.6.22
This week we are revising reading the time. If you would like to support your child in these activities, you could help them apply this knowledge to practical activities such as noting the times of regular activities e.g. bedtime, breakfast time, the time a favourite TV programme comes on etc. It is helpful to count around the clock in lots of 5 as this also helps with their tables recall.
Y2s – please read quarter pasts, half pasts and quarter tos on the clock, then extend to reading five-minute intervals (twenty five past four etc.).
Maths Home Learning w.b. 20.6.22
This week in Maths, we are revisiting number pairs that add up to 20, e.g. 12 + 8 = 20. You could ask your child to tell you the number pair in different ways, for example “What do you need to add to 12 to make 20?”, “12 add something equals 20 – what is the something?”, “20 subtract 12 is ?”. To make it easier, relate this to the number pairs to 10: 2 add 8 equals 10 so one number is larger by 10.
Y2s – if you can do this already, have a go at multiples of 5 and 10 which make 100 e.g. 45 + 55 = 100.
Maths Home Learning w.b. 27.6.22
This week in Maths, we are revisiting position, direction and movement. We will be using the terms quarter, half, three-quarter and whole turns, both clockwise and anticlockwise. We also want to make sure that the children have a precise understanding the following phrases: left and right, top, middle and bottom, on top of, in front of, above, between, around, near, close and far, up and down, forwards and backwards, inside and outside. Please help your child to explain what each of these mean and give examples.
Quarter (quarter past), half (half past), three-quarter (quarter to) and whole (o’ clock) also relate to the turning of the minute hand on an analogue clock, so please check your child can identify these.
Please use the resources below to help your child know all their phonemes. Unfortunately the 'play sound' does not work online.
