Times Tables and Number Bonds

For the next couple of weeks I would like you work really hard at learning your 2, 5 and 10 times tables and the division facts that go with them.

Here are some websites that you can use to help your practising.

There are also lots of apps that can help you remember the facts.

Also, I would like you to keep practising your addition and subtraction facts. You could use the 1 Minute Maths App from White Rose to help you with this. It is free to download.

I would like you to try and spend some time practising each day in order to really secure your knowledge of these facts.

Platinum Jubilee Topic Map

This term we are going to be learning about a very special, one-off topic – The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This will include a focus on changes within living memory and significant individuals. We are looking forward to our Jubilee Tea Party and Mrs Gregory is particularly excited about decades day where we will dress up as one of the decades of the Queen’s reign (more details to follow soon).

To find out more about the focus in our areas of learning this term, our topic map is available at the following link.

Year 2 Spelling Focus w/b 21st March 2022

This week in their spelling lessons, Year 2 will be focusing on the ‘or’ family of words, particularly the sound being spelt with an a when it comes before an -l or -ll.

The words they will be focusing on include:

  • all
  • also
  • always
  • ball
  • call
  • fall
  • stalk
  • talk
  • tall
  • walk

The children will not be tested on these words, but we will be challenging them to be including them in their writing and looking for application in their work.
