Half term Homework

This week we  have sent home copies of some poetry homework and also the information about the S Factor competition.

S Factor: We would love to see as many entries as possible for the S Factor competition, which will take place on Monday 19th June (2Lo) and Tuesday 20th June (2La).

The poetry homework supports some key Year 2 learning: being able to recite a range of poems by heart. We will be asking children to recite and perform their chosen poem in the first few weeks after the holidays.

Wonderful poetry

The children have been performing poems in groups this week and have used ideas from the poems we have read, to write their own poems. We tried hard to include rhyme, alliteration and similes.

In maths this week we have been using expanded column methods to add and subtract two 2-digit numbers. Please look at this link to a previous blog to see this:

We have also been estimating answers to calculations and solving 2 step word problems.

Making an estimate

Which of these number
that is between 30 and 40?

44  – 13   29 + 17   56 – 23

2-step Problems

1. Ben has 32 football cards. His brother Sam has 12 more. How many do they have in total?
2. Ruby has 90p to spend. She buys a cake for 25p and a drink for 15p. How much does she have left?
3. Oliver reads 7 pages of his book on Monday and 9 pages of his book on Tuesday. The book is 25 pages long. How many pages does he have left to read?

In our topic work this week we shared what we already knew about Fairtrade and learned some more facts. We used drama to illustrate the indifference between Fairtrade and non-Fairtrade farmers.

Have a lovely holiday. Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!
