Hello Year 2!

Hope you are all ok! It is very nearly half term! I'm sure you all deserve a break.

Just remember if you want to email some of your work you can send it to homework@nashmills.herts.sch.uk with Year 2 or Miss Brewer in the subject box. You can even just send me a message. I will be checking every day! ;)

I want you to remember that the work I'm setting doesn't all have to be done on the same day and some days you may not choose to do any at all! It is just there to help you.

Please have a look at the BBC bitesize website for their daily lessons. They look very good!

If you are finding any of the work tricky, why don't you have a look at the Nash Mills Year 1 page or the BBC bitesize activities for year 1.

Scroll down to Monday 18th May to start your week. You will need to download worksheets from here again.

Remember it is one lesson a day!

Maths-

Here is some Easter themed maths. It suggests to use 10 or 20 sided dice...…... I would just write the numbers on small pieces of paper and mix them up to generate your numbers. (Unless you have them of course!!)

As you already have lots of English activities here are some crafts related to space if you wish to have a go. If you don't have all the bits you need, don't worry, just use what you can.

Wednesday 1st April

I hope you have been practicing telling the time! Your maths has 3 levels of challenge. (Chilli Challenge!) Choose which one you wish! You can always start cool and work up to hot...

English- I know you have lots of English already but just do them when you can. Even if you don't get round to it until next week it doesn't matter. It will stay on here for when you are ready for it.

Follow the powerpoint and the worksheets are labelled in the correct order.
