Everyone had fun today in Wren class on NO PENS WEDNESDAY!! 

 

In English we took on the roles of some of the characters in the traditional tales that we have been reading.  We

had great fun pretending to be the characters.  There were some amazing questions and answers.

WOODPECKER NO PENS WEDNESDAY 

We had an amazing day and cannot thank Mrs Warsop enough for helping us and for organising the day!! Woodpecker class spotted Mrs Watson using a pen and stopped her IMMEDIATELY!!! Well done Woodies!!!

 

In Maths some of the Year 2s started a money topic. We sorted coins, described them and played coin Bingo.

Year 2 Maths Money

We have been naming and sorting coins.  We have been practising counting pots of money and investigating how many different ways we can make a set value.

 

Ideas to practise at home.

Go shopping with someone at home. Can you work out which coins you need to pay.

Use coins to work out how many different ways you can make a set amount...for example - How many different ways can you make 25p?  Challenge your adult or brother or sister......Can they make any more ways?

Year 2 Maths Number and Place Value

In maths we have been doing lots of work on number and place value.  We have been counting forwards and backwards to 100 in 1s and also counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.  We have been learning to read and write 2-digit numbers to 100 and we have been learning about the place value of each digit in that number. We have ordered numbers and compared them using the vocabulary bigger than, greater than, smaller than, in-between, 1 more/1 less.  We have also used symbols <  >

to compare numbers.

 

Ideas to practise at home.

Practise reading numbers in the environment (page numbers, house numbers)  Say the number.  Partition and say how many 'tens' and how many 'ones' in that number.

For example 72 is 7 tens (70) and 2 ones.

Play bingo with an adult at home using 2-digit numbers.

This is a really exciting first topic and will allow the children to consider the fictional world of traditional tales in contrast with the reality of the world around us.
