MATHS: Multiplication

Summer Term- Week 5

 

We will be using the White Rose Maths website for our daily Maths lessons again this week. Each link below will take you to a short video that teaches the new concept. Home learning worksheets are now only available to schools who subscribe to their premium service. We have a subscription so you can still access the worksheets and answers but you will need to download them separately (found below table).As before these can be printed but if you don’t have access to a printer, don’t worry, children can write their answers on paper. The answer sheet can also be downloaded so please discuss any mistakes with your child. You don’t have to do all of the parts of the lesson if it is too hard, work through as much of the worksheet as you can.

 

Offline Learning option:

Write out the 2 and 5 times tables. When you think you are ready, ask a grown up to say a times table like 5x3 and then answer as quickly as you can without using your notes.

 

Use arrays to calculate multiplication statements that are not in the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

An array is a way of representing multiplication facts in a diagram or picture. It is made up of rows and columns. An array is helpful for calculating multiplication statements.

Example:

 

Draw arrays to show different multiplication statements.

3x8

Challenge

Can you write 2 multiplication number sentences and a repeated addition?

Example:

3x8=24

English

We will be using the Oak National Academy website for our daily English lessons again this week. Each link below will take you to the page with that lesson for that day. Listen the teacher on the videos and follow her instructions. Do as much of the lessons as you can.

 

We are starting a new unit of work based on The Odyssey.

 

Offline learning option: Write an action scene. We asked you to write an action scene two weeks ago so you should build on from that prior learning. Remember, an action scene is a part of a story in which characters are doing things. As they are doing things, this piece of writing should include verbs (doing words).  Try to make them as powerful and interesting as you can. For example you could use sprinted if your character was running fast or ambled if they moved slowly.

 

You should also include powerful adverbs. An adverb is a word that describes a verb. It tells us where/when/how something happens. Last time we looked at fronted adverbials but this time we are going to use adverbs of time, manner and place in different places in the sentences. Adverbs of time tell you when, adverbs of manner tell you how and adverbs of place tell you where. Example: He sat down quietly. Next, she poured water into the bowl.

 

Last time you could choose everything about your action scene. This time we would like you to focus on a storm. Imagine being in a storm and make a list of verbs and adverbs and then use them in your action scene.

This week’s focus: Action scene

Monday

MATHS: Addition and Subtraction

Summer Term- Week 4

 

We will be using the White Rose Maths website for our daily Maths lessons again this week. Each link below will take you to a short video that teaches the new concept. Home learning worksheets are now only available to schools who subscribe to their premium service. We have a subscription so you can still access the worksheets and answers but you will need to download them separately (found below this table).As before these can be printed but if you don’t have access to a printer, don’t worry, children can write their answers on paper. The answer sheet can also be downloaded so please discuss any mistakes with your child. You don’t have to do all of the parts of the lesson if it is too hard, work through as much of the worksheet as you can.

 

Offline Learning option:

Bonds to 100

Ask a grown up to choose any number to 100 and you tell them how many more to get to 100. Example: Parent says 25 and you should respond with 75.

 

Create your own hundred square. Choose a number i.e. 36. How many squares are there up to that number (including 36)? How many squares come after that number? Make a fact family using that information i.e. 36+64=100

64+36=100

100-36=64

100-64=36

 

Ask a grown up to write some missing number addition and subtraction calculations involving bonds to 100 or write your own!

Example: 100 -___=55  The answer is 45

___+23=100  The answer is 77

____=41+59  The answer is 59

The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme. Remember a syllable is a part of a word pronounced as a unit. It is usually made up of a vowel (a, e, i, o and u) alone or a vowel with one or more consonants. Example: the word ‘Haiku’ has two syllables, Hai-ku.

 

Read this Haiku and clap the syllables in each line.

Notice how you do not need to use punctuation if you do not want to. It is the poet’s choice.

Write your own Haiku. When you have completed it, check and edit your Haiku using the success criteria below.

Hi Year 2,

Welcome to a new week of learning! We still can’t quite believe how many weeks we have been apart now.  Thank you again for your continuing efforts and as always please do not hesitate to contact the teachers or the school office if you have any concerns about your child’s (or your own) well-being during this unusual time. As before, please make sure you spend some time on home learning activities every day and give priority to Maths and English lessons daily. Please email us at Y2@st-marysfields.leicester.sch.uk if we can help in anyway.

Summer Term- Week 3

Once you click the links below you need to scroll down to the bottom of the page and select Summer Term-Week 3

 

We will be using the White Rose Maths website for our daily Maths lessons again this week. Each ink below will take you to the page with that lesson for that day. There is a short video that teaches the new concept as well as a worksheet to be printed. If you don’t have access to a printer, don’t worry, children can write their answers on paper. The answer sheet can also be downloaded so please discuss any mistakes with your child. You don’t have to do all of the parts of the lesson if it is too hard, work through as much of the worksheet as you can.

 

Offline Learning option:

Choose two numbers that add up to 20 or less and complete two addition number sentences and two subtraction number sentences using those numbers to make a ‘fact family’.

Example:

15+2=17

2+15=17

17-15=2

17-2=15

 

Top tip! Remember with subtraction you should start with the whole-the biggest number. In this example, it was 17.

 

Challenge: Include 2 more number sentences for addition and subtraction by moving the =. Remember = means the same.

Example:

15=17-2

2=17-15

17=15+2

17=2+15

 

So you could complete 8 number sentences using the same three numbers.

We are continuing our unit of work based on The Firework Maker’s Daughter.

 

Offline learning option: Write an action scene. An action scene is a part of a story in which characters are doing things. As they are doing things, this piece of writing should include verbs (doing words).  Try to make them as powerful and interesting as you can. For example you could use sprinted if your character was running fast or ambled if they moved slowly.

A good action scene will include the following features:

 

 

Fronted adverbials of time tell you when, fronted adverbials of manner tell you how and fronted adverbials of place tell you where. See how they have been used in the example below.

 

 

Don’t forget your must haves: Capital letters and punctuation at the end of the sentence!

This half term we are learning about plants. This week we will be learning about germination, seeds and bulbs

  • Some plants grow first from a seed,

-beans and sunflowers grow from seeds

Some plants grow from a seed and then develop a bulb that helps them to grow back year after year.

  • A bulb lets the plant rest underground over the winter when it is too cold, then grow back later in the year when conditions are right.

-Daffodils, tulips, snowdrops, lilies and allium all grow from bulbs.

 

  • Please go through the Power point attached below and if you can plant a seed or a bulb.

What do you need for planting? What do plants need to grow?

If you can’t plant a seed or bulb, could you research seeds and bulbs online? Can you make a list of plants that grow from seeds? Bulbs? What’s your favourite plant, flower or vegetable? Does it grow from a seed or a bulb?

Open my mind

Show what you would be like if you had lots of energy and were feeling healthy and then if you had no energy/ or were feeling unhealthy. You can act, make sounds or use words to describe how you might feel.

Think about how the human body is like a car and that if we put things into our bodies that we don’t need, our bodies don’t run very well, we need nutritious foods.  Sometimes our bodies just need a rest to feel better; other times they might need some ‘fixing’. Which foods do our bodies need and which foods do our bodies not really need?

Think about carbohydrates, fruits/vegetables and protein: these foods give us energy for a long time. Foods that give us energy for only a short time aren’t as good for us: chocolate, cakes, biscuits, sweets, fizzy / energy drinks, crisps, etc.

Like a car, sometimes our bodies need special treatments, so for us that’s when we might need a medicine to keep us healthy. What would happen if we used medicine when we didn’t need it?

 

Tell me or show me/ Let me learn

Draw an outline of yourself onto paper and complete a ‘Healthy Happy Me Recipe.’

By your head write and complete: To keep my brain healthy, I need to…

By your tummy write and complete: To keep my body healthy I need to…

Hi everyone,

Welcome to a new week of learning. Thank you so much for your continuing efforts. Parents/carers, the photos that we have received really show that you are doing an amazing job of being teachers at home! Thank you so much!

The learning looks a little different this week. We have been asked to separate maths and English tasks into lessons for each day. We have provided links to video lessons from different sources.  Please follow the day by day activities for Maths and English. Please try to cover as much of the learning outlined below as possible. If you do happen to skip a day please go back to where your child has left off. We ask that you don’t miss out lessons as these are sequential and would interfere with your child’s understanding of the concept. We would also be grateful for feedback. What are you finding useful/not so useful? Please email us at Y2@st-marysfields.leicester.sch.uk. This is a testing time for many people. Please don’t hesitate to contact the teachers or the school office if you have any concerns about your child’s (or your own) well-being during this unusual time.

These are the Hands

These are the hands
That touch us first
Feel your head
Find the pulse
And make your bed.

These are the hands
That tap your back
Test the skin
Hold your arm
Wheel the bin
Change the bulb
Fix the drip
Pour the jug
Replace your hip.

These are the hands
That fill the bath
Mop the floor
Flick the switch
Soothe the sore
Burn the swabs
Give us a jab
Throw out sharps
Design the lab.

And these are the hands
That stop the leaks
Empty the pan
Wipe the pipes
Carry the can
Clamp the veins
Make the cast
Log the dose
And touch us last.

Hello Year 2,

We hope you are all well and managing to stay positive. Keep working really hard but don’t forget to have lots of fun too and really make the most of this time with your family. After this week, phone calls will be fortnightly.

 

Please email pictures or videos to show what you have been doing, or with any questions.

 Y2@st-marysfields.leicester.sch.uk. We would really love to see what you have been doing and will try to reply to all your messages. It would also be nice to add some of the pictures sent to our Home Learning Page so that their friends can see what they have been doing at home.

 

Please remember we are aware that everyone’s child and home situation is different so do not feel any pressure to complete everything. This is only a guide.

The children are used to quite a structured day at school (we have a timetable so they know what to expect). It may help them adjust to a very different routine if you let them know a rough plan of what they will be doing throughout the day.

 

 

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
