Welcome to our Base 9 page where Year 2 will be sharing lots of exciting things that go on in our class!
This term we have really been enjoying our theme linked to Castles and have had lots of fun sharing our favourite Fairy Tales. In English the children have had some fun with the story of 'Cinderella' and completed some wonderful persuasive writing based on our 'Vehicles for Villains,' to make sure that the Ugly Sisters get to the Palace ball on time! We completed a wonderful Art and Design focus linked to the theme and made the incredible cars!
In Maths we have been very busy measuring our heads in cm's for crowns to wear to the Palace ball, as well as sharing a 'Fractions Feast,' to enjoy once we got there. The children were able to talk about sharing the amounts and how they could be split equally in different ways.
Base 9 Information
Base 9 Homework is set every Friday and is a weekly Spelling and Times Table focus.
Homework needs to be completed by the following Wednesday so that it can be marked in time for the new homework to be set. It really helps if children are as prompt as possible with this please.
The Times Tables that children need to know in and out of order by the end of Year 2 are 10's, 2's, 5's, and 3's. We do work on this in class but any additional support in this is greatly appreciated.
The children should also know the corresponding division facts for each of these Times Tables too please, so if the know that 5 times 5 is 25, then they should also know 25 divided between 5 is 5.
The children also need to know the 64 Common Exception words for Year 2, which I send home regularly.
Reading comments should be completed by the children 4 times a week and need to be relevant to the text that they are reading. This is rewarded with a raffle ticket for our 'Big Book Draw' every Friday.
PE is taught every Wednesday and a shorter session is flexible for a Thursday. Please could PE kits be available in school on both of these days.
