Welcome back Torino class! We hope that you had a great Christmas holiday with your families.
This half term we are learning to count in 5's, recall number bonds to 10 and 20 and solve problems using money in Maths. It would really help us if you could practice these at home.
Number bonds to 10 -
0 + 10 = 10
1 + 9 = 10
2 + 8 = 10
3 + 7 = 10
4 + 6 = 10
5 + 5 = 10
6 + 4 = 10
7 + 3 = 10
8 + 2 = 10
9 + 1 = 10
10 + 0 = 10
Number bonds to 20
0 + 20 = 20
1 + 19 = 20
2 + 18 = 20 etc
Please continue to read at home 5 times a week - this really makes all the difference and your child will be working towards the Reading award every time they read! Also help your child by encouraging them to learn their weekly spelling list.
Please do not hesitate to come and see me if you have any worries - if I cannot talk to you there and then, we can make another time to talk properly.
Welcome to Year 2!
The children are settling well into our new classroom and learning.
This half term, our topic is the Enchanted Woodlands, which we launched on the first day back by walking to Harmony Woods. We are reading the Hodgeheg and Once Upon a Wild Wood in English to help inspire our writing.
We have been using lots of resources in Maths to help use find the place value of a number - understanding tens and ones, counting to 100 and back and finding 10 more and 10 less.
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday - please make sure your child keeps their PE kit in all week in case we have to change this day! Also remember to bring long trousers for outside PE, as it is now starting to get cold outside.
You can help your child at home by reading every day, practicing weekly spellings and counting in 2's, 5's and 10's. Once they can do this, please practice those times tables!
Thank you for your support
