Year 2 Curriculum Overview



Take a look at some of the things the children have been doing at home.


During the second week, the children are welcome to have a go at the following; 


MATHS - Fractions


Plan


Success Criteria

Activities



Children can continue to access the mymaths.co.uk and educationcity.com websites to consolidate their learning.




ARITHMETIC
Once a week, the children could have a go at the following arithmetic questions. I usually give the children 15 minutes to complete it. I would then normally go through the answers with the children and show them if and where they have gone wrong. Here is the test for this week;



PROBLEM SOLVING
This is a set of problem solving questions. We normally do around 5 or 6 questions a week. Once they have had a go, I would then go through the questions and explain the answers and if they have got any wrong, explain why. Please can the children do another 5 or 6 questions this week.




TIMES TABLES
It would be important for the children to keep up with their times tables. If you would like to know where they are up to, please email me.



These websites are excellent for maths games too;



Any further ideas for Maths can be accessed by following this link.

It is an excellent resource!
