Year1/2 SR 2021 - 2022

Welcome to Y1/2SR

Welcome back after the Christmas holidays.  We hope you had a restful time. This half term our topic is called Busy Bodies. You have probably guessed from the title of our topic that we will be learning all about the human body!  In our Science and topic lessons we will learn about the senses, the names of the main parts of the body and the basic needs of animals, including humans, and much much more!  In Art the children will be studying famous self-portraits and learning the techniques needed to draw a realistic self-portrait. In Computing we will be learning about algorithms and how we can improve them - this gives us chance to get the bee-bots out!

We hope you have a great half term,

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. 10.1.22

This week we are learning how to solve division problems practically and record them as number sentences.  If you would like to support your child with this, you could suggest practical sharing activities for them to do. For example, sharing out a bunch of 18 grapes equally between 2 people and counting how many each person gets, or sharing 20p between 4 people. 

Y2s – don’t forget to keep practising your 2, 5 and 10 times tables (in order and out of order). Extend to the 3 times table if you are confident.

Maths Home Learning w.b. 17.1.22

This week in Maths, the children are continuing to practise multiplication and division. If you would like to support your child in these activities, please:
Y1s – practise counting in lots of 2, 5 and 10 up to 10 lots of each. Try them in order (1 lot of 2 = 2, 2 lots of 2 = 4, 3 lots of 2 = 6 etc.) and when you are confident, try out of order as well.
Y2s - continue to practise the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables, in order (1 x 2 = 2, 2 x 2 = 4, 3 x 2 = 6 etc.) and out of order. Try asking ‘switchers’ as well, e.g. 5 x 7 as well as 7 x 5. If you are feeling brave, you could try the related division facts of each times table.

Maths Home Learning w.b. 24.1.22

This week in Maths, the focus is on money. We are recognising coins and their worth, combining coins 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.

Y2s – we would like you to add up coins up to £1 (and over if you can).

Maths Home Learning w.b. 31.1.22

This week in Maths, the focus is still on money. We are concentrating on finding different combinations of coins that equal the same amount of money (trying to use the least coins possible as the first combination), for example 20p can be made using a 20p coin, two x 10ps, four x 5ps, a 10p and two 5ps etc. If you would like to support your child, please continue to involve them in small shop transactions. There are also some good videos at https://www.bbc.com/bitesize/topics/zp8dmp3 to watch.

Y2s – we would like you to think about calculating change from 20p and then 50p.

Maths Home Learning w.b. 7.2.22

This week in Maths, we are looking at fractions and finding halves of shapes, objects and amounts. If you would like to support your child, please ask them to find halves of everyday things e.g. grapes, buttons, chocolate bars, pizzas etc. It would be helpful if some of these were ‘whole’, for example an apple, and some were already segmented or made up of several parts, for example an orange or a bowl of blueberries. You can relate this to the sharing activities (division) from a few weeks ago.  Please stress that fractions are parts of a whole that are exactly equal in size.

Y2s – Please find halves and quarters.
