Maths

This week, we will be learning all about statistics and how we can organise data in different ways. You will be completing lots of different activities to help you become data experts!

 

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

Monday

Today we will be learning all about tallies. What does this word mean? Watch the following video to help you understand what tallies are used for and how to draw them!

Counting with tally marks or tallies

Now that we know what a tally is, click on the image below to learn a little more!

 

 

Your task for today is to turn all of my higgledy-piggledy data into some organised tally charts. Could you draw a chart for the results? Below are three different selection of items. Can you organise them for me so that I know how many of each item there are? I have given you a template for the first one. Can you create your own table for the other 2 images? See if you can complete a tally chart for all 3 images.

 

Tuesday

You need to go on a mission around your house. Take a pen and paper for a walk and make tallies for the items you spot. How many tallies can you create by counting items in your house? Here are some examples:

  • How many tins of food do you have in the cupboard?
  • How many keys can you find around the house?
  • How many knives, forks and spoons can you find?
  • Could you count how many trees you spot on your daily walk?
  • How many cars drive past your house?

 

Remember to use your 5 times table to help you! Your challenge is to put your data into a nice neat table!

Wednesday

Today we will be learning another way of representing data. We will be using pictograms! This is where we use pictures to display our data. Click on the picture below to watch the clip. This will help you understand how pictograms can be used.

 

 

Today, I would like you to use your best drawing skills and create a pictogram. I have provided you with my shopping list for you to use as your data. Think about how you could display it and what you might need in a pictogram. Good luck!

 

Thursday

You need to do some research! Could you think of 10 famous people? They could be pop-stars, tik-tockers, footballers, friends, family members or anyone else you can think of! Now do some research to find out what coloured eyes they have. Then construct a pictogram with your results! There is a template below to help you. If you want to pick a different category then feel free. 

Friday

Yay, it's the last day of the week! Well done for completing all of your work. 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!
