Year 2 CH and JJ 2022 - 2023

Welcome to Y2CH and Y2JJ

You can find the KS1 blog here. It features stories and photos from our exciting learning journey together.

Welcome back! We hope you've all had a wonderful summer holiday and managed to do lots of exciting things.   

This half term our topic is called India! We will be basing lots of our learning about this amazing country.  We will be finding out about India; what is it like there? what is the weather like? what are the people like? what does the country look like?  and much, much more.  

Our science learning will be all about the Weather and Seasons. We will be doing some experiments to find help us monitor how much rain we get in Autumn. We'll also be visiting the secret garden too!

We have lots of things planned for this half term, so keep your eyes peeled for emails and letters telling you all about the different activities and events. 

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

Thank you for your support,

Y2 teachers

Home Learning

Maths Home Learning 2022-23

Each week we will send home a slip 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 their learning. The activities can also be found on the Y2 section of the Marlcliffe website.

Maths Home Learning w.b. 26.9.22

This week, the children are learning to compare numbers. The Y2s are starting off using ‘fewer’, ‘more’ and ‘same’, then moving onto using < (less than) , > (greater than) and equals (is the same as) signs. They are extending their understanding of this from last year, using more complex numbers and number sentences. Please support your child by selecting two numbers (you could use dice or cards) and putting in the correct sign. Ask your child to read each number sentence e.g. 15 < 24. Try to include some 3 digit numbers to compare as well.

Maths Home Learning w.b. 12.9.22 and 19.9.22

This week in Maths, we are working on counting on and back and finding one more/less  than a number. If you would like to support your child in these activities, look for numbers in lots of different places (house numbers, page numbers, bus numbers, etc.). Make sure that your child can say what the number is and then ask what 1 more and 1 less would be. Look for numbers over 100 when you are out and about. 
Thank you for your support.
