Hello Year 2,

I have really enjoyed speaking to some of you over the phone. It has been great to hear how you’ve been keeping busy over the lockdown period.

Here is the learning for this week, any problems then get in touch through Purple Mash.

Mrs Marsden.

Maths

 

Again, I’m not going to set any new work on MyMaths this week. Keep working through any that you haven’t completed.

I’ve set something slightly different this week, based on a feedback from you and your parents. Here are 3 arithmetic tests for you to try. Remember to show your working out and not do every calculation mentally.

Y2_Arithmetic_Test_1

Y2_Arithmetic_Test_2

Y2_Arithmetic_Test_3

You can also work through the word problems on fractions here.

Yr 2 – Spring Block 4 – Fractions

Practise your mental maths skills on this fun game:

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

You can play any of the following– number bonds, halves, doubles, times tables (x2, x5, x10)

 

Remember to keep practising on Numbots and Times Table Rock Stars.

 

Spelling/Phonics

Go to www.phonicsplay.co.uk and practise any of the Phase 5 games.

 

We are looking at apostrophes’ this week. An apostrophe is used when an object belongs to something e.g. Sam’s hat – the hat belongs to Sam. The apostrophe always is added to the thing that the object belongs to. So the cat’s food not the cats food’.

 

In addition please practise the list of words and the Common Exception Words at www.spellingshed.co.uk
