Wednesday 1st July

Good morning Year 2, welcome to a new month. Today we are going to be looking more closely at turns. As well as thinking about left and right, clockwise and anticlockwise, you will need to be thinking about half, quarter and three quarter. These are all ways of describing a turn


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 we are working through a power point on turning. Before you start your work check with your grown up which is your left and right and which is turning clockwise and anti-clockwise. It would be a good idea to get one of your toys and practice turning that in the different directions before you start your work. You will also need to check that you can turn your toy a quarter turn, a half turn and a three quarter turn. If you can’t find a toy, you could always use yourself and ask your grown up to give you a direction and an amount to turn and see if you can do it correctly.


Once you have had a practice, start working through the power point. Remember you need to answer the questions before you move on to the next slide as the answers will be there for you to see. Once you have completed that the pdf file underneath has three activity sheets for you to work through. Keep reminding yourself which way is right or clockwise and which way is left or anti-clockwise.
