Year 2 Lockdown Learning
WB 11.05.20

Please complete as many of these activities as you wish. We would encourage you to make sure there is a balance between home learning and family time during these exceptional times.

This week we would like you to help Mrs Menhinick with the leavers book. We normally do these activities in school but this year you need to complete them at home. If you want to be in the leavers book you MUST complete all of the activities that are explained and attached in the 2nd email. Please return and attach all of the completed tasks in one email to the class address when you have finished. This needs to be done by 3pm Thursday 21st May 2020.

Literacy

  • See leavers book activities, history and RE ideas for your literacy learning this week.
  • Learn your spellings and have a spelling test. Put your spellings into sentences and write these down.
  • Read with an adult for at least 10 minutes every day, talk about what you have read. To make it more interesting you could read to grandparents over the phone or internet, read to your siblings or even your pet.

Maths

  • Complete the new daily mental maths sheet attached. Use a 100 square if you need to.

Subtraction

  • Practise your number bonds to 10 and 20 by writing them as subtraction number sentences. Try to do them in sequence, what do you notice about the pattern?

e.g. 10 – 3 = 7

      20 – 12 = 8 

  • Complete the daisy chain worksheet on addition and subtraction.
  • Make up your own daisy chain and test on someone in your family.
  • Complete the sheet on subtraction along a number line. Watch the video in the class folder, details were sent by parentmail last week. This is the same method used in our maths workshop earlier in the year.
  • Do your 3 lots of RM Maths.
  • Continue having a go at some online maths:
