Year1/2 SR 2021 - 2022

Welcome to Y1/2SR

Mrs Smith and Mrs Roach would like to welcome all of our lovely children to their new class!  We hope you have had a beautiful summer holiday and are raring to do some super learning.  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 either Mrs Roach or Mrs Smith, please email school at   enquiries@marlcliffe.sheffield.sch.uk  

Thank you for your support,

Y1/2 teachers

Maths Home Learning 2021-22

Maths Home Learning w.b. 11.10.21

This week we are working on addition, supported by Numicon and also using other informal methods such as ten frames and ‘part, part, whole’ bars (search online to see an exmaple).

This is a representation of the calculation that they do in their heads, so it helps if they get used to writing the number sentence (14 + 5) and drawing a bar as well. Remind them to start with the biggest number as addition is commutative (can be done in any order). Try 13 + 6, 12 + 7 and 11 + 9 for starters.

Y2s – trying adding onto numbers bigger than 20 for an extra challenge.

Maths Home Learning w.b. 18.10.21

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. 1.11.21

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. 8.11.21

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.
