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 email@example.com 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.
Over the next few weeks you will be doing some work on maps.
Go through the ppt together. Discuss what you already know about maps and have a go at sketching a map of school and the local area.
Read the guidance with your child and follow the instructions.
There will be a short video to watch to help with the mathematical concept. The activities are next to the video and so are the answers. I will also put them below to help.
Copy and paste the link to get to the video. (I will save the link on a word document for you to follow if it does not work)
Remember it is one lesson a day!
You are working from week 3 Summer term.
Lesson 1- Find 3 quarters
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!!)
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.

The children have each been given a login to a Maths activity website called Sumdog which has maths games aimed at improving their speed and accuracy in mental maths. To access this at home please visit: www.sumdog.com.
Their usernames are their first name, beginning with a capital letter, followed by the first letter of their surname (also a capital letter); their password is cat and the school code is nashmills.
e.g. Username: BenD

Please note that the activities are tailored to each child's abilities according to their results, so if older siblings use the same log-in , it will affect the questions asked.
