Week 17 Christmas Term: 7th - 11th December 2015
Please encourage your child to read regularly over the holidays. Next term the genre focus is Information Booklets. We will be encouraging the children to write about an animal of interest to them, so if they read information books on animals over the holidays, it would be beneficial to them.
This week in maths we used our prior knowledge and skills to answer word problems using the RUCSAC method. We worked systematically. Firstly we read through the question and chose the correct operation (multiplication or division) to use. Then we chose a skill (repeated addition, arrays, skip counting or fact families) to solve the problem. Our word problems were all about Christmas, they were one and two step.
Over the Christmas holidays we will need to practice recalling both our multiplication and division tables for the 2,3,4, 5 and 10, and our number bonds to 100.

Grade 2 Zoo Expedition
Now would be a good time to share the zoo information you have been sent with your child and to chat about any concerns they may have about the overnight zoo trip. If your child has never experienced a sleep over before, perhaps one could be arranged to alleviate some of their worries.
