Maths

You will need the + and – calculation sheet from the website and a pencil today.  Don’t worry if you can’t print the sheet, you can copy one calculation at a time and answer it just as you would from the white board at school.

Answer as many of these calculations as you can.  Remember to think carefully about the different strategies that we have been using in school.  Counting on/back from the largest number, counting in steps of 10, using partition and recombine.  Please refer to the maths calculation strategy handout that was shared with all parents/carers at the start of the year. For the adding and subtracting of two 2-digit numbers you can also make use of the supporting videos located in the remote learning tab for year two under maths support.

You will need the double and half game sheet, a dice, a small object for each person playing

This game is to support children’s quick recall of doubling and halving numbers.  This can also be linked to multiplying by 2 and dividing by 2.  We encourage you to play this game everyday this week with your child.  If you have other family members at home maybe they could join in too.

At the end of the week please let us know if your doubling and halving skills improved by becoming quicker at answering.

You will need a tablet, computer, laptop or phone, The Stickman 6 circular story board sheet and a pencil for today’s work. You may also choose to use colouring pencils.

Read or watch the video of The Stickman read by Miss Green. This can be found under the 'Listen to a Story' tab. Whilst you are watching/listening, try to remember all of the different places that the Stickman visits, the things that he sees and the people that he meets. These events happen at different stages in the story. Think about what happens in the start of the story. How are the characters introduced? Is the setting described? When does the adventure begin? Then consider the middle section of the story. Does the author have a plot? Is there a problem to be solved or an adventure occurring? Then think about the ending of the story. How does Julia Donaldson bring the story to an end?

Watch the story board video

You now need to start planning your own Stickman story using the circular story board sheet. You will need to think of an idea for you story. Where will the story start? What will happen to the stickman during the story? Where will he go? Who will he meet? How will the story end?

Use the circles to illustrate your story. You will need 2 pictures for each section of your story, so 2 for the beginning, 2 for the middle and 2 for the ending. Include in the pictures the events that will happen in your story, where the stickman goes, who he meets etc. Your beginning pictures should be in circles 1 and 2 and so forth.

Your illustrations must include a background as well as the character and events that are happening.

You will need the example puppet pics sheet, the Stickman puppet design sheet and a pencil/colouring pencils.

Today we would like you to design a Stickman puppet to make on Wednesday. You can choose to make a hand puppet, stick puppet or sock puppet. When designing your puppet think about how you will attach it together, the materials you will use and how you want to use the puppet. Does it need to have moving arms? Or do you want its mouth to move so it looks like it is talking? Answer the design questions and complete the design sheet up to the evaluation section, stop at this point.
