Poetry Year 2 Christmas unit

(0)
Poetry for Year 2 focussing on grammar features including varied sentence types. Children can use visuals to support their learning to develop language to describe Christmas imagery. They then use the words to create a structured poem with a statement, exclamatory sentence with How...., a question, command and finally a statement that contains a simile. This will create a great opportunity for children to engage with poetry, learn, perform and enjoy. The lesson matches the demands of the new English curriculum for 2014 for written and spoken language. Although this is a seasonal poem, it can be used as a starting to point to change and innovate to any topic of choice. The structure would still apply to any chosen subject e.g. animals or seasons. Please remember to review. Thank you.

Capacity and reading scales at intervals Year 2 Mastery

(0)
These are activities to assess children's ability to read scales in ml and litres. Children should have first hand experience measuring into different size cylinders or bottles first to get secure understanding of when to use ml or litres. They should experience for example that four 250 ml containers fill a litre bottle. They can then move on to identifying the reading of scales in different jugs and solve problems. These resources are differentiated for mastery and greater depth. There are opportunities to show reasoning. Suitable and high expectations for the new maths curriculum.

Year 2 Estimating addition and subtraction calculations

(1)
Year 2 estimating calculations by rounding to the nearest multiple of 10 first. This resource has differentiated activities for children to solve an equation by rounding. They then write a reasoned answer about which answer is the closest. e.g is 12 + 9 closer to 20 or 30? children select 30 and write a sentence e.g 12 rounds down to 10 and 9 rounds up to 10 so 20 is the closest answers. children working at greater depth have further opportunities to round, reason and also use the > and < sign to select the appropriate answer. This is a challenging activity for all levels. Children will be able to develop fluency with estimating and rounding. They will need a pre-teach lesson about rules of rounding prior to this. Suitable for the new Year 2 curriculum and meeting ITAF standards.

This is a fantastic way to include a dinosaur topic in your English unit. The resource contains an exemplar text (Instructions) with visuals aimed at the Exceeding in EYFS or Working at in year 1. The children are introduced to the story first - Harry and the bucket full of dinosaurs. It then leads on to learning instructional exemplar text (imitate) about 'How to take care of a pet dino.' This is supported by a text map to sequence and internalise language. The grammar features included are time connectives and prepositional language. The exemplar text is differentiated for SEN or EAL learners who may have little English, or limited writing ability. The unit lends itself well to imitation, innovation and invention. The children may go onto writing instructions for 'How to care for yourself ' or 'How to get ready in the morning.' They may write instructiins about caring for a class pet. There are lots of opportunities to do cross curricular and independent writing opportunities from this book e.g. my first day shopping. Excellent text for relluctant boy writers. ENJOY.

2d shapes Problem Solving and Reasoning Working In Greater Depth

(6)
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. Work can be differentiated by giving children regular or irregular shapes. Very stimulating activity for all learners.

Year 2 Division including missing numbers

(0)
Year 2 Division. This is a bundle of resources to teach division with missing numbers. It is suitable after children are secure at step counting to divide or after sharing equally into groups. Once they are secure, they can solve missing numbers. They should use step count to solve the missing number for division or the inverse of multiplication depending on where the missing number is placed. The next step function machine is an excellent plenary to solve another missing number that is presented differently. It is excellent for children working at greater depth. This resource is fab and fun for exploring and investigating number in mixed ability groups. Please enjoy and remember to review the resource. Thank you.

Year 2 Materials and Their Uses Unit has been creatively linked to the topic of Great Fire of London. Children are doing a comparative test linked to Samuel Pepys’ diary writing. They understand how to use materials that are not easily detected at first and then test materials which can be used to reveal the secret message (such as ink) . children are encouraged to think about how to record their findings independently for greater depth and show reasoning during their planning. A 14 slide powerpoint explains the process of enquiry which supports helping children to think of their own enquiry questions and ways of finding out. There are great opportunities for cross curricular work that should not be missed. Science in this context has been made purposeful and this is a fun enjoyable lesson to do. Please leave comments if you try and enjoy the comparative test. Suitable for the new science curriculum 2017.

Year 2 Greater Depth Determine Remainders using known facts TAF

(0)
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. A necessary objective to meet the standards for greater depth and useful to consolidate multiplication and division for working at children. I hope you find it useful.

Before children can estimate, they need to be able to round up or down. This is a great introduction to rounding to the nearest multiple of 10 up to 100. The children can practice identifying which multiple of ten is on either side of a given number. They then use the rounding rule to round up or down. This is a great differentiated activity to show mastery maths and reasoning with numbers up to 100. Children will be required to reason with problems such as Adam can read 8 pages a day. Estimate how many he can read in a week. The children will round first to solve this answer and show their reasoning.
