Welcome to another week of Maths. I hope that you are ready to learn more about TIME throughout the week. The activities are very practical this week!

 

Once you have completed the activities for the week make sure to send me your work on year2@johnhunt.notts.sch.uk

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.

Flashback 4

How to Tell the Time - Educational Video for Kids

Monday

Keep a diary of all the things you do today. Miss Wilks has made an example to help you. Look at the 3 challenge levels below and pick the level that best fits your math skills!

 

Bronze - Complete your diary using O'clock and half past. 

Silver - Complete your diary using O'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.

Gold - Complete your diary using the time to five minutes? 

 

Tuesday

Your challenge today is to create your own clock and then set the hands to different times. Try setting the hands to the same times on your diary from yesterday. There is a blank clock template attached or you could draw round a cup or other circular objects. Look at the different clock examples below. Could you make your clock that interesting?

 

Wednesday

Today we will be recapping our knowledge of minutes, hours and days. Work through the information on the link below and join in with the activities. Then you need to display your new knowledge in whichever format you like. You might create a spider diagram, a poster or a list. There is an example to help you below. 

 

Thursday

How many seconds are in a minute? Today you need to record yourself doing as many different things as possible in 60 seconds? How many times could you write your name in 60 seconds? How many times could you hop on one leg in 60 seconds? There are some recording sheets attached below or you could create your own!

 

Friday

Yay, it's the last day of the week! Well done for completing all of your work on time. Today you need to complete the arithmetic paper. If you are in my Friday group then complete page one of the arithmetic paper, if you are in Miss Wilks' group complete both pages and if you are in Mrs Parkers' group complete both pages and have a go at the challenges as well! Remember to show your workings out!
