Phonics  / spelling

Accurate spelling is essential for children to attain the expected level for a year 2 child.

This half term we will revisit phase 5 alternative spellings and continue to develop more accurate spelling within written work.

There are a range of web sites that can support children needing to practise Phase 3 and 5 words . Foam phonemes is a great place to start.

Click on the letter or group of letters , watch them fire out of the cannon and catch them. If you have several letters together and click on them you can almost hear the web site blending the word together.

Maths

We will continue to develop recall of the 2 and 10 times table and division facts. Children will continue to practise telling the time to quarter to and quarter past the hour.

This week we continue to develop addition and subtraction skills. Further practise place value and problem solving.

Children in year 2 need to be able to add a 2 digit and a 2 digit number mentally e.g. 25 + 37= and subtract a 2 digit and 2 digit number ( not crossing into the next 10)  e.g. 58 - 13 .

Keep practising adding and subtracting 10 as well as counting up and back across the 10's barriers  - e.g. count on and back from 28 to 34 , from 57 to 63  from 76 to 84.
