Wednesday 25th March
Good morning Year 2, I hope you managed to complete all your tasks yesterday and are ready to tackle some new ones today.
During today I would like you to complete the following tasks;
Make sure you have 10 minutes on Times Tables Rockstars and 10 minutes on Hit the Button during the day. The reason I want you to do both is that I would like you to concentrate on the division facts on Hit the Button.
Today I would like you to focus on Counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s – these are on pages 10 and 11 of your workbook. Read page 10 first and then complete the task on page 11. These 2 pages’ focus on counting in the different amounts and the activity sheets I have attached do the same thing. There are 6 activity sheets in total, but you do not have to do them all - they are the pdf files at the bottom of the page. Please do at least one where you have to count in 2s, 5s and 10s and one where you have to count in 3s. If you wish to do the others, then you can do those to. Make sure your numbers are the correct way round every time. You can either print them off and write your answers straight on to the paper or you can write the answers into your blue maths book. The last page on the attachment has the answers on it so you can either mark your own work or ask an adult to mark it for you.
To support your learning on place value, there are 2 games that you can play on Top Marks. If you ask an adult to type Top Marks into Google and then click on maths games, 7 – 11 year olds, place value.
- Place Value Basketball
- Shark Numbers
Both of these games will make sure you are counting your tens and ones correctly and you can work with some big numbers. Remember to count the towers of 10 in tens and then the ones.
Throughout this week could you also practice telling the time
In Year 2, the children have to learn to tell the time in 5 minute intervals. Using a real clock and real time helps the children understand more as they are able to link times to real life. However, there are lots of free interactive clocks you can use on the internet if you need to.
Remember to keep practising reading the time on an analogue clock as this is a very useful skill but very hard to master. I would like you to continue to practice telling the time little and often this week using an analogue clock. Before you know it you will be fantastic at doing this!
