Helping your child at home

Home Learning

 

Mathsthe key is to practise counting and number recognition in any way. Also any games that practise addition and subtraction skills. For year 2 practising tables and tables facts for 2s 5s and 10s is also key.

Dice games – please see our website for more ideas –  https://www.st-mildreds.kent.sch.uk/maths/

 

Roll and Build

 

  1. Roll the dice and count the amount (use anything practical eg lego, beads, buttons). Roll the dice and add on!   This can be played in reverse – start with 20 and roll the dice to see what to take away.
  2. Roll two dice and add the dots – write a number sentence to go with it

Eg roll a 3 and a 4, write 3+4=      

This can also be done with dominoes – pick a domino and add the dots

Reading and Writing

 

Write about what you do each day. What toys did you play with? Did you watch any good movies or read any good books? What were they about?

Reading – shared reading of books and stories that you have at home. Can you spot tricky words that you know in them?

See our English section of the website:
