Year 2 CH and JM 2021 - 2022

Welcome to Y2CH and Y2JM

Mrs Cashmore, Mrs Harrison and Miss McCreesh would like to welcome all of our lovely children to their new class!  We hope you have had a fun-packed summer holiday and are ready for the new school year. This half term our topic is all about the Seaside.  We will be learning about what seaside holidays were like in the past - the children might ask you some questions about what holidays were like in the 'olden days'! We will also be finding out about Grace Darling and the very first lifeboats that were used.  In Science, we will be investigating different materials and finding out which ones make the best boat.  

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

Thank you for your support,

Y2 teachers 

Mrs Cashmore, Mrs Harrison and Miss McCreesh

 

Home Learning

Maths

Each week we will send home a slip like this 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 his/her learning. The activities can also be found on the links below.

This week we are working on addition, including adding three numbers to make a total. Please help your child practice holding the larger number in their head and counting on the next number, then the next. Encourage your child to look for bonds to 10 within the number sentence.

Eg. 7 + 4 + 6 (6+4=10 +7=17)  5 + 8 + 3 (hold 8, count on 5 to 13 and then the 3 to 16). You could throw a 1-6 dice 3 times to generate numbers.

We have been doing some investigations in maths this half term. In these, there are often more than one correct answer. It is useful if children can find a system or pattern to help the investigation. Here is an example to try at home:

Susan and her little brother James’ total weekly pocket money is 10p. Susan always gets at least 1p. Find as many different possibilities as you can.

Now try it with a total of 20p, where Susan gets at least 11p. Can you spot any patterns?
