Parents

If you are unsure how to support your child with Maths, please refer to the 'Parent Support' section on the Frog homepage where Miss Wilks has kindly uploaded videos of the methods we use in Year 2.

 

Mental Maths Daily Warm-up

Fancy a challenge? Ask someone (a grown-up or sibling) to pick any number. Answer the following questions:

 

  • What is one more?
  • What is one less?
  • What is ten more?
  • What is ten less?
  • Can you count on from this number in 2's?
  • What other similar questions can you think of?

 

Do some counting in your 2's, 5's, 10's and 3's. Follow these links to warm your brains up:

Fluent in 5 - Spring Term

Please complete 1 page of your fluent in 5 booklet every day. Remember to use the methods we have taught you in class. Once complete ask a grown-up to check your answers. Don't worry about printing the booklet off, just use any paper you have to hand. There are also 4 'Flashback' starter activities for you to complete Monday - Thursday. These recap everything we have learnt up to this point.

Time Introduction

How to Tell the Time - Educational Video for Kids

Monday

Telling the time to the hour 

Today is a recap of Year 1. Remember the 'big hand' points to the minutes and the 'small hand' points to the hour. Click on the image below in order to watch the BBC clip all about telling the time. You can also try the other activities on the same page.

 

Work though the PowerPoint below and then complete your task. There are three different activities. You could just complete 1, complete 3 or complete all 3!

Tuesday

Telling the time to the half-hour

Watch the following video and then read through the PowerPoint before completing your task. If you have a clock or watch could you challenge yourself to try and recognise the time on it? 

Telling the time - o'clock and half past

Below, are three different activities to choose from. Everyone needs to have a go at 'Label the Clocks'. After, see if you can complete any of the other challenges. 

Wednesday

Quarter past and Quarter to

Watch the following video clip which explains quarter past and quarter to. Then watch the PowerPoint.

Thursday

Telling the time to 5 minutes

Start by recapping your 5 times table. You will need to use this to help you with your work today! Can you count in 5s all the way to 60? Why is 60 an important number? Watch the following video and work through the PowerPoint.

Remember to show your workings out!
