This half term, we are learning all about animals and their habitats. We went into the Wildlife Garden to find lots of minibeats. We explored their different habitats and we talked about why we think they might like living there.
We are learning how to partition 2-digit numbers into tens and ones. We have used dienes and counters and we have really enjoyed doing it. Have a look at our work below!
During Rainbow Week, we made our own rainbow water using skittles and warm water - it was so cool!
Below is a list of words the children are expected to be able to read and spell, by the end of Year 2. They are called 'Common Exception Words', because they don't necessarily follow a particular spelling pattern. If you want to do any extra spelling practise, use these words as a starting point! I have also attached the Year 1 list, just incase you want to recap.
By the end of Year 2, children are expected to be secure in their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. They should know them in order and out of order, and should be able to answer a times table question very speedily. They should also know the corresponding division facts, for example, if 5 x 2 = 10, then 10 ÷ 5 = 2, or 10 ÷ 2 = 5. Once children are secure in this, they can then move onto learning their 3 x table if they wish. Children in Year 2 should not start learning their 3 x table until they are completely secure in their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. The Maths Chase website is a brilliant tool you can use to help your children with their times tables. Click on the link below to access the website.
