Hello Year 2. This week's maths lessons come from Whiterose home learning again. We will continue to practise our multiplication and divsion skills. Remember that we are a week behind because of art week, so we will be working from week 6 which is dated Monday 1st June. I will put some links each day to some worksheets you could use to practise your skills. Some are fluency questions and some are reasoning and problem solving questions. Remember there are 3 levels of challenge each time. Choose whichever suits you best. Here is the link to the Whiterose page. If you prefer you can use the activities linked to the BBC bitesize lessons.


Our English this week is based on a story from China called the Magic Paintbrush. I will teach some lessons with the video like the rainforest lesson last week. You will also need the spellings and other documents below.
