Year 2 Homework Activities Summer Term First Half

 

Below is an outline of the fortnightly written activities we would like your child to complete at home over the course of this half term. The idea is that you spend roughly one hour over a two week period on the activities (half an hour each week). The first week would involve working with your child to research and plan what they would like to write. The second week would be where your child sits and produces their piece of work.

 These pieces of work link to what the children are working on in maths. In year 2 the children will need to use standard units to estimate and measure mass (g,kg) and capacity (ml,L). They need to be able to identify 2D and 3D shapes in terms in the number of sides, faces, vertices and edges they have. The activities below are intended to extend your child’s learning to real-life situations beyond the classroom.

 

Date to hand in  completed homework

Task

 

 

Thursday 4th May

Capacity

With a grown up, look at a range of bottles in your house that show how much liquid they contain in litres or millilitres. You might be surprised that different shaped bottles hold the same amount of liquid. Present your research using labelled drawing, photos or pictures from the internet showing containers that hold less than ½ a litre (500ml), between ½ a litre (100ml) and a litre and more than one litre.

Thursday 18th May

Mass

With a grown up, look at a range of packets in your house that show their mass in grams or kilograms. Hold the items to feel how heavy or light they seem. If you have weighing scales on your house you could test the accuracy of the measurements given.  Present your research  using labelled drawing, photos or pictures from the internet showing packets that hold less than ½ a kilogram (500g), between ½  a kilogram and a kilogram (1000g) and more than one kilogram.

Thursday 2nd June

2D and 3D shapes

What 3D shapes can you find? Look back at your work on capacity and mass are any of your bottles or packets cubes, cuboids or cylinders? Can you find any objects in your house that are cones, pyramids or spheres? What about 2D shapes? Circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, pentagons, hexagons or octagons.  Present your research using labelled drawing, photos or pictures from the internet.

 

BBC Bitesize has a selection of clips relating to measure and shape at KS1. Below are just a few.

Year 2 - Summer - First Half

Maths Homework- IXL

Below is an outline of the set homework skills we would like your child to practice over this half term. A suggested amount of time to spend on the two skills on IXL each week is 10-15 minutes. You should notice that as your child answers more questions correctly and at a faster pace that the level of difficulty will increase, similarly if they answer problems incorrectly IXL will alter the problems to suit their understanding.

 

Week commencing:
