Mrs O’Dell is taking over planning the Y2 maths after half term, as I will teaching back in school. Therefore, you will find the maths plans on the Willow class page. Hope to see you all soon.
How did you get on with the new Maths Challenge today (24.4.20)?
This is our working out! We found there were quite a few steps we had to work out to find the answers. I thought challenge 3 was the trickiest. We knew that one number had to be 800 and the other 500 hundred, because that would give us a difference of 300. The number had to be greater than 300 and less than 400. We then placed the other digits to make a 3 digit number. We tried a couple of other numbers but they only made a difference in the two hundreds. Did you find any other numbers that worked?
HOME LEARNING WK/B: 20.4.20 - Welcome back and I hope you had a lovely Easter break. How many of you saw the video of the staff dressed up, wishing you a Happy Easter? We had great fun making it!
Have you all eaten lots of chocolate eggs? I was lucky this year and had two! A Heroes egg and my favourite; Smarties Orange - from my family which was a lovely surprise.
Now you have had a break, I think you will all be ready to get back into a routine of learning. I know my children need to, as it gives them a focus each morning.
I have put together some daily tasks for this week. Click on the PDF below.

HOME LEARNING - I am sending the children home with a pack of activities that they can do at home during this difficult time. Below is a list of useful websites that you can also access for games and activities. Please also remember that playing games like shops with real money is fantastic for learning to add up small amounts of money and giving change and much more fun! Draw around packets, tins and make a shape picture. Measure objects around the house using a ruler. Fold paper in half and quarters, find half and quarter of objects. One area that we have not covered yet is time. The children will need to practise half past, o'clock from year 1 and then they learn quarter to and quarter past. If you could help with this on an analogue clock that would be really useful.
https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check For practising 2x, 5x, 10x tables.
https://www.mymaths.co.uk/ I have set the children various tasks to complete and will keep it updated with new ones on a weekly basis. I have resent the children's passwords in a letter which you can find in their pack.
You can find my email address on this page if you need to contact me.
These pages will contain information about fortnightly homework tasks and photographs of the exciting maths learning the children have been engaging in.

HOMEWORK (11.10.19) - Thank you for returning your counting in 2s homework. This week the homework is counting in 3s. The worksheet is called tricycles.
This week (2.3.20) we have been looking at coins and notes. We have solved problems making equal amounts and used a bar model to help us to add up amounts of money. At home the children could be asked to find ways to make small amounts of money e.g. 56p then £2.65. They could set up a small shop, labelling items with prices. Then add some of these objects together.
We have also been chanting our 2x table at the start of every lesson this week. Your child should of come home with a 2x table sheet today to consolidate this at home. Please return by 20th March.
