Spring term 2 - Mother Nature
Welcome back to remote learning. We hope you all had a fantastic and fun week and are ready for our next topic. This half term our topic is Mother Nature. We will be doing lots of interesting lessons and learning lots of new facts.
Unit 8. Measuring Length and Height.
PLEASE NOTE – WE ARE MISSING THE UNIT OF STATISTICS (UNIT 7) AND WILL COMPLETE THAT UNIT NEXT WEEK
Parents please watch the first video for advice and help.
EXTRA HELP VIDEO FOR Y1 SUBTRACTION.
For all those of you having difficulties with this week’s maths in Y1, here is another video which might help to explain better than Mrs K did! This unit of work is about becoming ‘more efficient’ in calculating – that means being able to work things out quickly ‘in your head’ and using what you already know. This video explains how to subtract in a ‘faster’ and more efficient way if counting back in ones takes too long AND you already ‘just know’ your number bonds to 10. I hope it helps! There is an optional worksheet to accompany the video underneath the video link.
Please note: Please don’t worry about this – we will revisit all these ideas when we are all back at school – meanwhile, play ‘numbots’ every day to really get to know your number bonds. It will help you LOTS!
We are going to spend the next 3 days to really learn our times tables (2’s, 5’s and 10’s).
The challenge is for you all to remember all the facts without having to skip count to find them – to just know that 4x2=8 so that you can answer them when a grown up asks you in a random order! Who’s ready? Send your photos and videos of you saying, singing or rapping your tables to your class email address please – we can’t wait!!!

Everyone with a Y2 power maths book (orange book) should also have a pack of printed sheets for the first 9 lessons before we begin our new Book 2B. If you don't have the sheets you can find them by clicking on the link below. Please send your work for feedback to your class email address.
