Challenge Zone

2017- 2018  - Children will be challenged in classes with a higher level of Maths and English.

Challenge Zone has changed a little bit this year! Children will be challenged in class with a higher level of maths and phonics and some children will be coming out of classes for writing sessions once a week. 

Below are some songs to help your children remember spellings. 

You can help your year 2 child by talking about their day, finding out what they have been doing in class and looking at books, newspapers and public interest stories on the internet (such as the Olympics, the Royal Family, Space exploration etc) All of these things spark imagination!

Singing in Maths

 

In Maths, we have been trying to remember what method we use for subtraction and addition calculations

 

We made up two songs to help us remember....

Subtraction (to the tune of Frere Jaque)

"Subtraction,

Find the Difference,

Take Away,

Minus too,

We can use a number line,

We can use a number line,

To count back,

To count back."

 

Addition (to the tune of Star Trekking)

"Partition

When we're adding up,

Then count all the tens,

Then count all the ones,

Partition,

When we're adding up,

Double check your answers,

Then we can't go wrong!"
