Year 2 Hub
Welcome to Year 2!
This week we had a Human Body workshop that went through exercise, food groups and body parts.
Maths- We are learning about Addition and Subtraction
20 + 7 = 27
We call the equipment in the picture dienes or base 10.
At school we are using White Rose Maths. Here is a link to the website that may be useful:
Now, we have moved on to addition and subtraction. We are re-visiting facts from Year 1 before extending our knowledge.
We have started with number bonds to 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
Number bond recall is an extremely important and can save lots of time in maths lessons. Please develop this with your child at home too.
e.g. Number bonds to 4
0 + 4 = 4 1 + 3 = 4 2 + 2 = 4
4 + 0 = 4 3 + 1 = 4
Making number bonds can be done with Lego bricks, cars, pasta shapes etc.
Using our number bond facts to find related facts.
e.g. 1 + 9 = 10 so 10 + 90 = 100 using bonds to 10 to find bonds to 100.
This week we have been using our number bonds to help us add more efficiently.
Game to play:

Home Learning will be given out on Thursday and should be returned by the following Tuesday.
We mark home learning together as a class to consolidate and build up our editing and correcting skills. Children should be made to feel good about correcting work to make it even better- it is not about getting everything right first time. Editing to improve is a big part of learning and a skill that needs to be built up with support from adults.
Independent work should start to show children have written, edited and made corrections to improve.
English:Complete the noun phrases with appropriate adjectives.
Phonics- complete the pages using your phonics sounds.
Please complete the sheet and use the space in the book to draw out the base 10.
Please return library books on Thursday.
We will then visit the library on Friday and send out new library books. We are encouraging children to write their own book title in the reading record during our library visit which they have really enjoyed!
The E-Collins reading books are updated weekly. I've shown children how to login in and they had a go in class to make sure they are confident using it. Before assigning extra books, I check the online records to see if the books have been read. I can see if they are opened and how long has been spent reading each book.
Please use the reading record to note down what has been read on E-Collins. If there are any tricky words, if children were able to re-tell the story, if they re-read speech remembering to use expression, if the story was similar to another one they have read or had a similar character etc.
*Re-reading to develop fluency and expression is a key focus in year 2.
Some children will be moving away from E-Collins as they complete the programme and will then be choosing books independently after the initial adult guidance.
Please complete the next pages in the handwriting book. It is really important
children are copying the correct letter sizes.*In year 2 children should be able to form lower case and capital letters correctly and write them the correct size in relation to other letters.
