Y2- here is the work for Thursday 25th February

Thursday 25.2.21  

Next week’s optional project is DT: food. The second session will involve tasting fruit, and the penultimate session will involve making a fruit salad. If you would like to take part in this optional project, and you are doing your shopping before the weekend, you might like to pop some extra, or different, fruit into your shopping trolley. We have recommended that the children use up to four different pieces of fruit in their final fruit salad. If you don’t have access to additional fruit please don’t worry, whatever fruit that you usually have will work perfectly, or your child could just do the design sessions.

Maths  

On Thursday, we will use skills that we have been learning over this term and a few from last term to solve a maths mystery. We will continue this activity on Friday. Over the Thursday and Friday we will be adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, identifying odd and even numbers, calculating fractions and completing number patterns. 

The work will be differentiated by the amount of support which you give to your child and if your child uses apparatus/drawing methods/mental calculation to solve questions. 

Blue – will need support from an adult and may use apparatus/possibly a drawing method. 

Green – independent work, may use drawing or mental method. Maybe a little support. 

White – completely independent work and mostly mental methods used.
