Below is a link to series of 5 lessons which go over counting in 2s,5s and 10s . Then a further 5 lessons which links this to money. These would make really good consolidation for children who are still finding these areas tricky. They need to be worked through as each lesson follows on from the previous one. It would be worth watching one first to see what you think.
If you decide that this would benefit your child then you could use these to replace the daily lessons on the class page.
Start the lesson by seeing how quickly and carefully you can add three small numbers. Remember you can use different strategies to help you and you can add the numbers in any order. You might start with the largest number , use number facts you know or look out for pairs that make 10 to help you.(Some children find drawing dots helpful but they need to be very careful!) Do these questions in your exercise book and then check the answers by clicking on the star.
2 + 5 + 2 = 6 + 6 + 4 =
9 + 1 + 2 = 3 + 3 + 3 =
3 + 4 + 4 = 6 + 6 + 5 =
5 + 5 + 5 = 5 + 5 + 9 =
7 + 4 + 3 = 2 + 2 + 2 =
7 + 1 + 7 = 9 + 1 + 7 =
Main part of our maths lesson.
Over the next few days we are going to recap on division questions. Remember this is the maths symbol for divide ÷
I have put some pictures and a voice clip together to remind you how to solve division questions by sharing into equal groups . If you put the pictures infront of you whilst you listen I will talk you through the pictures. I hope this helps.
Division questions (the second number tells you how many groups you need)
12 ÷ 4 = 12 ÷ 3 =
9 ÷ 3 = 15 ÷ 3 =
6 ÷ 3 = 16 ÷ 4 =
12 ÷ 4 = 8 ÷ 2 =
10 ÷ 5 = 10 ÷ 2 =
Problem time - Can you explain your thinking to an adult.
Ben has 20 sweets and shares them between 5 friends.
Tom has 20 sweets and shares them between 10 friends.
Whose friends will receive the most sweets?
How do you know?
1 - Handwriting
Complete page 24 in your handwriitng booklet.
Remember to trace the word and then copy it neatly 3 times.
2 - Main part of the lesson.
This week we are going to use some of the online English lessons. Again it would be really good to get some feedback on what you think to these types of lessons.
This lesson practises some of the Year 2 common exception words and also reminds us about answering retrieval questions from a text. So you will need your exercise book at the ready.

Today we are going to learn about the life cycle of a plant.
First click on the link below. There are 3 parts, 2 short programmes to watch and a little quiz.
Try and remember these words and what they mean.
germination - When a plant grows from a seed.
seed - A part of a plant that can grow into a new plant.
seedling - A young plant.
1- Take a page in your book or use a piece of A4 paper and ask an adult to divide the page into 8 squares like below.
2 - Look at the 8 pictures. They show different stages of the life cycle of a flowering plant. Oh no! They are in the wrong order. Your task is to copy the pictures carefully in the squares but in the correct order.
3 - Remember to number each square and draw the arrows.
4 - You could also draw the things that the seed needs to germinate and grow.
5- Can you add some labels or short sentences to each picture?
