Y2 Acorns




Hello and Welcome to the Acorns!


Summer 1

This half term our topic is Hooray lets go on holiday.


In Topic

We will be looking at Seaside holidays in the UK along with seaside holidays from the past. We will also be looking at Sand Art and the children will be creating their own sand Sculptures.


You can:

· Help your child to learn their weekly spellings and put them into interesting sentences.

· Share exciting stories and poems, getting your child to predict what might happen.

· Help your child to describe how a character feels and what the character might be thinking, finding words in the story to support their answers.

In class we will be:

Looking closely at the story of The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch.

We will be studying the characters and the story to prepare your child to write a story of their own using story language, say where the story is set, describe a character and use speech.





You can:                                  

· Help your child to read and write numbers up to 100 in  figures and words.

· Help to learn number pairs to 10, e.g. 2 and 8 (2+8) and 20, e.g. 18 and 2 (18 + 2)  and 100 e.g (80+20)

· Help to learn multiplication facts for the 10, 5 and 2 X table. Then begin to know facts for 3 and 4 x table.



In class we will be:

Understanding  repeated addition and arrays as multiplication, and sharing and repeated subtraction (grouping) as division; including calculations with remainders.

 Using the symbols to record and understand number sentences ; calculate the value of an unknown in a number sentence

Understand that halving is the inverse of doubling and remember and recall doubles of all numbers to 20, and the corresponding halves

Learning how to describe and extend number sequences and recognise odd and even numbers

Add or subtract mentally a one-digit number or a multiple of 10 to or from any two-digit number; use practical and informal written methods to add and subtract two-digit numbers


Understand that subtraction is the inverse (opposite) of addition and vice versa; use this to find and record related addition and subtraction number sentences


Year 2 homework

Please read with your child on a daily basis for at least 10 minutes talking about the story and pictures.

Please learn spellings or letter sounds every week. These will be checked weekly.

Please investigate and collect information about  different seaside towns in the UK. This will support the learning they are doing in class.
