Good morning Year 2,
I hope that everyone has had a fantastic weekend. I’ve had a lovely weekend, but it went very quick!
Today in English we will continue to do some work linked to ‘The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch’. Having spoken to many parents and some of the Year 2 children who are in school, I hear that you are all enjoying the story, which is great news! Today we will think about some of the nouns in the story and you will generate some adjectives to describe the nouns.
In maths we will be doing some work with our times tables. I have uploaded 3 sheets linked to the 2,5 and 10 x tables. After speaking to some of your parents, they explained that some of you were having a little difficulty when finding the answers to some multiplication calculations especially when you’re not confident in counting in steps of 2, 5 and 10. So, I have made a short video to show you a method you can use to help you solve a multiplication calculation , it is also a could strategy to check your answers. It is called drawing multiplication arrays … take a look!
I’s also like you to have a go at playing a multiplication game. Click here to play the game.
You need to click on times table first, then click x 2 on hit the answer. (This can also be changed to x 5, x 10 and x 3) Have fun!
Finally, because it is Monday I have uploaded your next set of spellings. Keep looking at the throughout the week to make sure that you remember to learn them. Your helper could test you!
Have a lovely day!
Mrs Gourley 🙂
