-Can you get creative and build or make different 2D shapes using objects in your home e.g., lollypop sticks with blue-tac, pipe cleaners, straws, toothpicks. Or anything else you can think of. Think carefully about the properties of the shape before you make it. (Examples in resources).

To help develop your music skills as you listen can you close your eyes, relax and see if you can recognise when these things change in the music:

  • Pitch - how high or low the music is.
  • Dynamics – how loud or soft the music is.
  • Timbre - the type of sound the instrument makes.
  • When there is clear beat can you try moving a part of your body to the beat, this could just be your little finger?

 

 

Art- the aliens need new pants.

- The aliens are running out of pants to wear. Can you design and make them some new ones? You could draw them on paper and then collage or colour them. You could even use your printing skills and print shapes onto them using potatoes, lego bricks or blocks. Remember-their favourites are Granny’s old bloomers. Templates in resources.

Maths

Number bonds to 10 and 20

Objective: I recall and use addition and subtraction facts to 20 fluently

In Year 2 the children rehearse number bonds to 10 and 20 with the aim of being able to recall these fluently, being able to calculate the missing number in a bond rapidly and applying their knowledge to help with larger calculations and word problems.

Activities

  • https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button - select number bonds, then begin with ‘make 10’ then move onto ‘make 20’. If you would like an extra challenge then select within 10 and within 20- this will create number pairs for any number up to 10 then up to 20.
  • ‘Number bonds to 10 frame’- can you use the different coloured spots to identify the missing number to make 10? Could you make your own number frame and use two different objects or coloured objects to make all 11 numbers bonds to 10? You use coloured beads, sweets, peas and sweetcorn or anything you can find at home. Ask an adult to help you draw out the frame. Remember that in an addition number sentence the numbers can be swapped round.
  • https://www.twinkl.co.uk/go/resource/T-GO-01-number-bonds-1-to-10  Keep playing and see if you can beat your previous score. You could share you highest score with your teacher.
  • https://www.purplemash.com/#app/pup/maths_activities_Y1_number_bonds- Interactive game.
  • ‘Number Bonds to 20 Space Wards’- make the number bond to 20- the numbers are represented in different ways e.g. digits, words, number frames. See if you can explain why you choose the answer you did.
  • https://www.purplemash.com/#app/pup/maths_activities_Y1_number_bonds_20- Pairs game for number bonds to 20.
