Maths - I can name 2D Shapes (Monday 28th September 2020)

This week we will be looking at shape for the first time in Year 2. Today we will be looking at 2D shapes, looking at shapes such as: a Circle, Triangle, Square and Rectangle and extending children's knowledge onto shapes such as an oval, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon and octagon.

 

They will be learning the properties of the shapes - How many sides they have, how many vertices/corners they have and that they are all flat. 

 

This song is useful for teaching the children the properties of 2D shapes - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24Uv8Cl5hvI  I would pause it after each shape and ask the children their understanding and check their memory of the shapes, if they are finding this difficult just focus on: circle, square, triangle and rectangle. There is also a bbc bitesize lesson dedicated to naming the properties - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zqdrf82

 

The children can write and record these in their homework book in a table like the one below.

There is a learn screen and activity on Education City to support this learning.

Maths Week 7 - Fractions (Week beginning 13.7.20)

This week we will be looking at fractions. We will be focusing on fractions, primarily looking at finding 1/3, 1/4, 1/2 moving on to looking at 2/3, ¾ and 2/4 of shapes and numbers, stretching the children’s understanding. Complete the Activities on Education City and Purple Mash, and if you want more practise have a go at the worksheets below.

Maths Week 6 - Subtraction (Week beginning 6.7.20)

This week we will be looking at subtraction. We will be focusing on perfecting the partitioning method (see the picture below) to complete calculations using 2 digit and 3 digit numbers, missing number calculations, solving 1 and 2 step word problems and using the inverse (opposite) to solve calculations. If you find it hard using the partition method, use the base 10 drawings to complete the calculations. There are activities on Education City and Purple Mash, and if you want more practise have a go at the worksheets that are downloadable. 

Maths Week 5 - Addition (Week beginning 29.6.20)

This week in Maths we will be revisiting Addition. Our main focus would be on learning how to add two 2 digit numbers, for example 37 + 25 = trying to develop the understanding of using the partitioning method. Try to write down some calculations or use the worksheets below to do your calculations. Remember to try and use the partitioning method or draw the base 10 to help like we would do in class (See the picture below). See if you can teach your mum, dad, brother or sister the way we do it in school! As well as this we will be looking at, solving addition word problems, and looking at solving missing number calculations too. Practise some calculations then have a go at the Purple Mash and Education City Activities.

We are looking at dividing this week using groups and multiplication facts to help with calculations. We will be focusing on dividing by 2, 5 and 10 solving calculations and number problems. Use the drawings below to help you with your calculations. Complete the Activities on Education City and Purple Mash, and if you want more practise have a go at the worksheets below.

Maths Week 3 – Multiplication (Week beginning 15.6.20)

This week we will be looking at multiplication. We are looking at multiplication looking at calculating how to multiply two numbers by using arrays or solving calculations mentally. We will be looking at multiply by 2, 5 and 10 mentally and using arrays to multiply by 3 and 4. Look below at a reminder of how to do arrays if you are unsure of how to complete the multiplications in your head. Complete the Activities on Education City and Purple Mash, and if you want more practise have a go at the worksheets below.

 

Maths Week 2 – Money (Week beginning 8.6.20)

This week we will be looking at money, it might be important to recap recognising the different coins and notes we use in England to help you to remember. Then you will need to use the learn screens on Education City to help you to count coins, add together amounts and find change, using addition and subtraction to solve money problems. Once you have done this you can complete the activities on Education City and Purple Mash to check your understanding. There are lots of money worksheets below if you want to print them out.

Maths Week 1 - Statistics (Week beginning 1.6.20)

This week we will be looking at Statistics in Maths,looking at how we organise`information into tables, graphs and charts. Below are some YouTube videos to help your children learn about Pictographs, Bar Graphs and other types of ways to sort data. Watch the videos below, follow the learn screens on Education City then complete the activities on there and on Purple Mash. There will be some Statistics activity sheets below the learning videos to print and practise at home.

 

Challenge: As a challenge can you hunt for minibeasts in your back garden, making a tally chart of the insects you see and use your findings to make a bar graph or pictograph to record how many you found.

Creating Bar Graphs

Learn all about Picture Graphs (Pictograms)

Maths Week 5 - Measures (Week beginning 18.5.20)

This week we will be looking at measures (capacity, length & height and mass). We will be looking at reading length & height in centimetres and metres, capacity (the amount of liquid something holds) in millilitres and litres and mass (the weight of an object) in grams and kilograms. Use the conversions chart below to help you to understand how many grams make a kilogram, millilitres make a litre and centimetres make a metre. Start with the learn screens on Education City to help your understanding then complete the activities on there and on Purple Mash.

Maths Week 4 - Time (Week beginning 11.5.20)

This week we will be looking at reading the time, first we will look at reading the minute hand (the big hand) starting with o’clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to. Then learning to read the time in five minute intervals. We will then use the hour hand (the small one) to understand which hour we are in or going to.

Look at the clock video below to help you learn the 5 minute intervals and look through the PowerPoint it will teach you how to read the time. Once you have learnt these start with the Learn Screens on Education City to teach you some more then complete the activities on there and Purple Mash. There are some worksheets for you to complete below too.

Maths Week 3 - Subtraction (Week beginning 4.5.20)

This week in Maths our main focus would be on learning how to subtract a 2 digit number from another, for example 37 - 25 =. Try to write down some calculations or use the worksheets below to do your calculations. Remember to try and use the partitioning method or draw the base 10 to help. like we would do in class (See the picture below). See if you can teach your mum, dad, brother or sister the way we do it in school! Start with calculations that don't cross 10s, for example 47 - 15 = and 36 - 23 = then move onto crossing 10s (36 - 18 = and 42 - 24 =).  As well as this we will be looking at solving subtraction word problems and using the inverse (opposite) to solve missing number calculations, for example 24 + __ = 32. Practise some calculations then have a go at the Purple Mash and Education City Activities.

Maths Week 2 - Addition (Week beginning 27.4.20)

This week in Maths our main focus would be on learning how to add two 2 digit numbers, for example 37 + 25 =. Try to write down some calculations or use the worksheets below to do your calculations. Remember to try and use the partitioning method or draw the base 10 to help like we would do in class (See the picture below). See if you can teach your mum, dad, brother or sister the way we do it in school! As well as this we will be looking at adding three 1 digit numbers for example 7+6+3= and solving some word problems. Practise some calculations then have a go at the Purple Mash and Education City Activities.
