This is a fun, engaging and creative lesson with shape. The lesson has been successfully used to apply knowledge of shapes in a year 2 setting. Children can begin to think of problems systematically. They think of the best way to start, that there is more than one answer, that they can use number doubles and counting on to support them. Children are encouraged to find different ways to make a 9 sided shape family. They need to be secure with properties of simple 2d shapes previously such as sides of regular shapes. This activity can also be used in year 1 with children working in greater depth to demonstrate reasoning with shape in the measures unit.

Greater Depth Maths - Year 2 TAF objective- Determine remainders using known facts. This is a greater depth standard, however, the objective has been differentiated so that all the class can access it at their level using visual and scaffolds. HA use known facts to solve remainders MA use multiplication facts of 2x table and division facts LA and SEN use numicon to solve how many 2 numicon can fit into a shape. The children master the objective by demonstrating reasoning and using known facts. 2x 7 = 14 and 2 x 8 = 16 (this is too high because I don’t have 16 socks). So the closest number of pairs is 7. 15 divided by 2 = 7 remainder 1 Suitable for the new maths curriculum.

They also follow through to finding out about a famous person from the past - Sir Christopher Wren (who designed many churches and buildings to help re-build the fire).

Handwriting and Presentation KS1

Handwriting and Presentation KS1

A set of handwriting and presentation rules in different styles. There are a set of rules outlined for children to support them with developing neat presentation and move on gradually to cursive handwriting. This is suitable from EYFS to end of KS1 and possibly even year 3 to ensure consistency and progression. There is a selection of handwriting fonts used, depending on if you use a precursive style or not, there should be something in here to suit the requirements of your school. The rules should be introduced early so that all the expectations are made clear. A reminder of application of these skills in English writing books is also useful on an ongoing basis to get well presented work. Must be displayed clearly around the classroom and ideally the rules should be written and practiced into books. This has been a very useful tool in a year 2 classroom to get children to use cursive writing most of the time and consistently.

Year 2 SPAG English Writing Grammar Toolkit TAF

This is a fantastic Toolkit with all the Year 2 grammar features written on top. It is designed to be used as a boy friendly writing Toolkit. It can also be used as a display around the class.

Great to move those reluctant boy writers and use it like a competition winning ticket- as we all know boys like challenges. Enjoy and please leave a comment if it has been useful in your classrooms.
