Wednesday 29th April

Good Morning Year 2!

I saw this little video and it made me laugh. It reminded me of the Gingerbread Man in the funny programme that lots of you like watching!

Wake up time!

Shake, get down, and boogie like a cookie! This video comes from GoNoodle's Awesome Sauce channel. Awesome Sauce gets kids moving to epic songs about cookies...

Planting seeds

I know that lots you have already been planting seeds over the last few weeks and helping out in the garden. If you managed to get a packet of seeds for this week then see if you can plant them and look after them over the next few weeks. Watch carefully as they start to germinate and grow into seedlings. If we were in school we would make observations, draw pictures and keep a diary of the seeds as they change and grow. You could do this in your book if you want to.You could also plant them in different places to see if makes a difference to how well they grow.

Main part of maths lesson

Today we are going to remind ourselves how to divide by grouping and counting the number of groups.

Sometimes we can get a bit confused with this so look at the pictures and listen to the voice clip to help you remember what to do.

Listen to the maths lesson as you look at the pictures below.

Questions  ( is where a number should be)

Dividing by making equal groups

1 . I have 8. How many groups of 2 can I make ?

8 ÷ 2
