Merry Christmas from Year 2!
Friday 18th December | 2 comments
What an exciting week we have had with fun activities and parties!
We have still managed to fit in some of our usual lessons! We have worked particularly hard in maths this week, getting to grips with multiplication. The children have been using maths ‘stories’ to understand this tricky new concept. We have learned that multiplication can be represented in different ways: as repeated addition, lots of, groups of and as arrays.
After the holidays we will be continuing our work on multiplication before moving on to division. It would be great if children could start to regularly practise their times tables at home; In year 2 we learn 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x tables. Thank you.
Here we are making our own arrays! Can you spot any arrays at home?
We also made some Christmas tree pictures using our measuring skills. Children had to measure, cut and stick strips of paper in place to make their Christmas tree before decorating. We were very impressed with how well the children tackled this activity.
We had a fantastic party day. We played games and danced til we dropped! We had a very special visitor at the end!
We would like to say a huge thank you for all your support this term and for your kind and thoughtful gifts and cards. Have a lovely break and we will see you all again on the 4th January 2021!
The Year 2 Team.
