Friday 3rd April
Good morning Year 2, I hope you and all your family are well.
During today I would like you to complete the following tasks;
I would like you to spend 10 minutes today on Times Tables Rockstars and 10 minutes on Hit the Button working on division facts.
Today, like you did yesterday, I would also like you to have a go at the number bonds on Hit the Button. Practice the number bonds up to 10 first then and then the ones up to 20. See if you can improve your score each time. You could always set yourself a challenge and have a go at the number bonds to 100.
Today I want you to complete the SATs 2019 Reasoning test paper that you brought home. This will take at least an hour, if not a little bit longer, so if you can’t do it in one go then don’t worry do it in smaller chunks. Your adult will need to read the first 5 questions to you and you will need to listen carefully and write the answers into the box on your test paper. The oral questions are on page 5 and 6 of the first pdf file – page 5 is for the practice questions and then page 6 has the 5 questions on it you need to listen to and then write your answer in the little box by the questions number. The questions after that you can have a go at reading yourself or, if your adult is not too busy, ask them to read some of them to you. Think about what the questions are asking you to do before you have a go at them. They do get a lot harder towards the end of the test paper and the question may ask you to add as well as take away to find the answer.
The pdf file at the bottom has the 5 oral questions in it and the second pdf file has the answers to all of the questions.
When you have completed this task it will be time for a rest as normally we would be breaking up for the Easter holiday and we don’t have any homework then.
Look out for your next task on Monday 20th April and make sure you keep safe and well.
Throughout this week could you also practice naming and describing 3D shapes
In Year 2, we have to be able to name a cylinder, cube, cone, cuboid, sphere, square-based pyramid and triangular-based pyramid correctly. We also need to be able to say what shape their faces are, how many faces they have, how many edges they have and how many vertices they have. You can use all sorts of real objects in your home to practice this and there are lots of clips and songs on youtube to help you remember.
