Year1/2 SR 2021 - 2022

Y1/2SR

Mrs Roach and I would like to welcome you all back after the half term holiday. We hope you've all had a good rest and managed to do lots of exciting things during the Jubilee weekend. If you were in the town centre last Thursday, you might have seen Mrs Smith dancing!!  

This half term our topic is called Blooms and Bees!  What do you know about plants and animals?  Do you like to go on minibeast hunts? We'll be visiting our secret garden again to look for minibeasts and to find out where they live.  We'll be learning all about bees too.  We will also continue to improve our knowledge of maps by studying the geography of our school grounds. 

In Art we will be studying the work of artist Marianne North and will be learning how to use watercolour techniques using paint. 

We have also got our Jubilee celebration to look forward to next week! And don't forget our very exciting trip to the Butterfly House, which I'm sure, we are all very much looking forward to. 

We hope you have a great final half term in Y1/2SR - we've so enjoyed teaching all of the children over the last year!! 

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 

Mrs Smith and Mrs Roach

Maths Home Learning 2021-22

 

 

Maths Home Learning w.b. 11.7.22

This week in Maths, we are practising counting in steps of 2, 5 and 10 up to and over 100, ready for the move to a new year group (Y2s are counting in steps of 3 as well).

To support your child at home, you could encourage them to play http://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/whackAMole/. It is PC and tablet friendly. You can set the steps they count in (and also the start number) using the sliders on the left hand side. Happy whacking! (No real moles were hurt in the making of this game.)

Maths Home Learning w.b. 12.9.22

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 Y1/2SR section of the Marlcliffe website.

This week in Maths, we are working on counting on and back and finding one more 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 would be. 

Y2s – can you also find 1 less please, and look for numbers over 100 when you are out and about.

Maths Home Learning w.b. 19.9.22

This week in Maths, we are still working on counting on and back but this time finding one less than a number. If you would like to support your child in these activities, repeat the activity from last week (look for numbers in lots of different places - house numbers, page numbers, bus numbers, etc.) Again, make sure that your child can say what the number is but this time ask what 1 less would be. If you have time, ask your child to write the numbers down and check that they are orientating them correctly.

Y2s – can you also find 10 more please (think about a 100 square – which number is directly below?).
