Maths in Year 2

This half term we have been practising our number skills in Year 2.  The children showed cooperation and worked together really well to investigate odd and even numbers.  In a revision session last week, the children showed a full understanding of odd and even numbers.  Ask your children if they can sing you a little song that helps them to remember which numbers are even.

The children have also been learning about position and direction.  One of the activities that they took part in that week was drawing their own maze on the playground.  One child would be blind folded while another gave them directions to get to the end of the maze.  The children had to say and listen to the vocabulary carefully, for example, turn, half turn, quarter turn, left, right, clockwise and anti-clockwise.
