Year 2 Week 21 2014

Mathematics In The Sunshine
Happy half term! Well done to all our wonderful, hard-working children. 
This week, in Literacy, Mrs Khan’s class has started to look at the themes and ideas from The Tunnel by Anthony Browne. Miss Barker’s class has been completing their explanation texts about butterflies.
In Numeracy, Mrs Khan’s group has been learning how to use objects to solve tens and units minus tens and units problems.

Mathematics In The Shade
Miss Barker’s group has been learning how to subtract numbers using the expanded subtraction method, and Mrs Baker’s group has been exploring multiplication in 2s, 5s and 10s, odd and even numbers, tens and units and also revising the difference between addition and subtraction.
Homework for the holidays:
  • All Maths groups – Each child has been given a maths activity booklet relevant to their maths group. They may complete as many of the maths questions as they wish. Each completed page will earn a smile point.
  • Please note: There will be no spellings for Miss Barker’s class to learn over the half term holiday.
Have a thoroughly enjoyable week! Mrs Khan and Miss Barker
