Hillingdon Educational Psychology Service

Year 2 Home Learning

 

During this time of home learning please continue to work through the purchased CGP books.

 

In addition Year 2 will publish suggested activities, at the beginning of each week, to support learning at home.

 

We will not be publishing a timetable but we suggest you choose a maths, a spelling and an English activity a day, if you can.

This interactive 100 square is a great way to keep your counting skills sharp! We recommend using this as often as possible to support counting in different steps alongside “Hit the Button” which is our other Year 2 favourite! 

week beginning 30.03.2020

How Seeds get Around - Seed Dispersal

 

We started looking at seed dispersal just before school was closed. 

 

Watch the video: How do Seeds Get Around with Maddie Moate

 

Key Questions: 

What is inside a seed? 

Why is it not helpful for seeds to fall just below or next to the parent plant? 

Why do seeds like to travel as far away from the parent plant as possible? 

Task

Choose 2-3 methods that plants have come up with to disperse their seeds. 

Name a plant which uses each method and write sentences to describe how the seeds are dispersed.  

Find photos of the seed online with help and carefully draw and label the features of each seed. 

Challenge: Can you find out any other ways seeds are dispersed?

Home Learning Pack (19.03.20)

To start supporting home learning please see the home learning pack. If your child was in school on Thursday 19th March they would have been given a paper copy, this includes a mental maths test. You may find this useful. As mentioned in the Newsletter dated 17.03.20, Year 2 will also be uploading additional activities each week.

Addition and subtraction strategy

The children have learnt to add and subtract two 2-digit numbers using an empty number line by partitioning the numbers into 10s and 1s.

 

Please note that we do not teach column addition to Year 2 children however the Classroom Secrets Learning Packs suggest the column method is to be used. Please use the empty number line strategy.

 

The children need to draw a number line using a ruler for each calculation.

Please also watch the video which talks through how we teach this calculation.

We are always busy learning.

In Religious Education we have been learning about Sikhism. We have learned that Sikhs believe in one God and that Sikhs have ten Gurus who teach them how to live their lives. We can explain the meaning of some religious symbols and describe some religious practices.

 

In February we visited a Gurdwara which was really interesting and lots of fun.
