Week Beginning 6th July
Please choose one task from each subject per day. We would love to see what tasks your child has chosen to do at home, so please send these to your child's class teacher via Class Dojo.
There are also some fantastic daily lessons and activities on BBC Bitesize for all ages and subjects.
This week, the Year 2 children will be learning to recall and use division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, including recognising odd and even numbers. They will be learning to understand that unlike multiplication, division cannot be done in any order and they will also be learning to use the division symbol (÷) and equals (=) sign. In addition to this, the children will be solving word problems by sharing, making equal groups and using mental methods.
Parent Support: There is some additional information and support for parents on Oxford Owl.
Pupil Support: Before starting this week's learning, it would be great if your child could watch the division video on BBC Bitesize.
