Year1/2 SR 2022 - 2023

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

 

Mrs Smith and Mrs Roach would like to welcome all the children back after a well-earned half term break.  

This half term our topic is called Real Life Superheroes.  What do you know about superheroes? Do you know any real life superheroes that have helped you?  We will be learning how to find out about real life superheroes from the recent past in our history lessons. Can you think of some ways we might find out about real life people? 
In Science, we will continue to observe the weather and seasons by visiting the secret garden. You can help your child by talking about what they notice about the changes in seasons.  This half  term Cool Chloe will help us to learn how to identify, classify and group food.  Book Boy will help us to carry out research about why exercise is important for us and Brilliant Betty will help us to make comparisons.  


In DT the children will be learning how to design, sew and evaluate their very own miniature superhero coat!  

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 for either Mrs Roach or Mrs Smith, please email school at   enquiries@marlcliffe.sheffield.sch.uk  

Thank you for your support

Mrs Smith and Mrs Roach

Maths Home Learning 2022-23

Maths Home Learning w.b. 21.11.22

This week the Y1s are finishing their unit on subtraction. They are continuing to use practical equipment to physically take away, and also counting back on a number line. To help your child practise, please ask them subtraction questions under 10, for example “7 subtract 3 equals?” or “7 take away 3 is?” and ask them to draw this on a number line as jumps.

The Y2s 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.) Can they say how many sides and vertices are on each shape? Are the sides straight or curved?

Maths Home Learning w.b. 28.11.22

This week the Y1s are working on recognising and naming 2D and 3D 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, picture frame, mat etc.) or how many cuboids can they see? (e.g. chest of drawers, TV, blanket box etc.)

The Y2s are learning about 3D shapes and their faces, edges and vertices and using lines of symmetry to complete 2D shapes. If you would like to support your child in these activities, have a go at making/painting/drawing a symmetrical picture at home with 2D shapes running centrally along a line of symmetry in the middle of the paper, and then label the 2D shapes. Encourage them to identify the sides and vertices of each shape as well.

Maths Home Learning w.b. 5.12.22

This week in Maths we are making patterns with shapes. These can be repeating e.g. circle, square, triangle, circle, square, triangle, etc., or symmetrical, e.g. circle, square, triangle, triangle, square, circle. The patterns have between 3 and 5 shapes in them. The Y2s are rotating some of the shapes as well. If you would like to support your child in these activities, ask them to draw their own repeating patterns or give them some you have made and ask them to continue the pattern. You can do this with objects around the house as well as drawing e.g. by threading pieces of fruit onto a kebab stick.

Maths Home Learning w.b. 2.1.23

This week in Maths the Y1s are counting within 20 and looking at teen numbers. Children can find counting through the teen numbers difficult, as the number names do not have the same regular 1 to 9 pattern that they hear once they count beyond 20. To support your child, provide regular opportunities for them to verbally count to 20, for example counting how many beads are in a pot or how many carrots pieces there are on a plate. Teen numbers are also difficult to write as the ‘teen’ part comes last when you say it but first when you write it. Practise writing teen numbers with your child as well, so you say a number and they write it, or draw it in sand or bubbles in the bath.

The focus is on money for the Y2s. We are recognising coins and notes and their worth, combining pence and pounds to make an amount and finding different combinations of coins that equal the same amount of money. If you would like to support your child, please look at real life coins with them and involve them in small shop transactions. There are also some good activities at https://www.topmarks.co.uk/money/coins-game to work through.
