Spring 2: Week 1
Year 2 have been busy getting to grips with finding fractions of amounts in Maths since we returned from half term. Using pictures to help us has really helped to improve our knowledge and understanding and some of the tricky fraction vocabulary.
3D Shapes and Big Questions
In Maths we love a big question in Year 2 where we try to find out and explain the answer! We enjoy trying to prove who is right or wrong with our maths partners using the mathematical vocabulary we have learnt already and use our prior knowledge.
In Maths we have been finding missing numbers using whole part models for addition and subtraction calculations.
Year 2 recalled vocabulary to compare different numbers today. We created our own working wall in the classroom of this vocabulary 😀
Year 2 have been using number lines to help find the nearest ten that a 2 digit number will round to today. We enjoyed using maths talk with our partners to find the correct answers.
We are learning to discuss our reasoning with our talk partners and explain our mathematical thinking using the correct mathematical vocabulary.
Today Year 2 have been comparing numbers and using the math vocabulary of less then, fewer than, least, greater than, greatest and most.
We were great Team players today in Year 2 as we joined in the Maths Workshop to solve puzzles and use our Maths skills. It was lots of fun.
We have been investigating creating numbers with apparatus, jottings and actual numbers to help improve our place value knowledge.
Today we have used the tens and ones equipment to make numbers. We are are learning that numbers can be represented by equipment, Picture jottings and numerals.
In Maths we have been using our place value knowledge to place numbers on a number line. We have improved our skills with number lines by estimating where numbers would go if they don’t just go up in 1’s.
We have enjoyed exploring different ways of making 10 with our maths buddies and discussing what this looks like on our 10 frames to help us get speedy with our number bonds!
