Welcome to the Year 2 page. We would welcome parents letting us know what they would like to be available on this page for their support at home. In addition, we will add information about how you can support at home on to our bulletin and also on to this page in order to helps us to work collaboratively and make learning fun and exciting for all.
There red are so many fun game websites available and sometimes it is just knowing what to look for that can be helpful as a parent. Some suggestions for key words you can use to search for apps or games:
- place value
- times tables
- word searches
- arrays in maths
Currently in maths we are looking at multiplication as sharing : the children will show you ...... I just found this with a quick google search, however this can be reconstructed in the home if you rather using literally any resource and attaching a noun to it. Stones, buttons, dried pasta - can all become mice, cars etc.
Continuing to read at home as often as possible out loud to an attentive adult can lead to significant growth in confidence for the child.
At the moment the children are learning their 2 times tables, doubling and multiplying by 2. This can be supported at home by reciting 2 times tables, 2 times tables games, seeing numbers and doubling them, talking about even numbers and showing multiplication as repeated addition.
i.e. 4 x 2 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2
