How are you all? We're still really missing you, but have really enjoyed chatting to most of you on the phone. If you haven't spoken to us, it's because we haven't been able to get an answer on the phone numbers the office has for your family. Please ask your parents to call the office with an updated number to pass on to us if we haven't managed to speak to you.

Multiplication: Continue to practice your times tables. By the end of Year 2, you are expected to know your 10x, 2x and 5x tables off by heart (in any order), and if you know these, start work on your 3x and 4x tables. Find or make arrays around you at home (eg. bookshelf, chocolate bar, remote control). How many in each row? How many in each column? Pick out a Lego piece and show the array using a multiplication calculation. Use Lego to help you work out times tables that you don't know (you can use them instead of numicon when counting in groups). Choose two numbers and multiply them together. Can you work out the inverse? Show it as repeated addition?
Seesaw: If you have a Class Login to Seesaw you can access extra maths activities. Login to Seesaw using your home learning code and go to Activities. Why not complete a Problem of the Day? Remember to record how you worked it out as a drawing, photo or voice recording.
