Today in Maths we will be completing a Chinese New Year mystery game which will require us to use lots of our Maths skills that we have been working on during our time in Year 2. There will be some addition and subtraction questions such as:


11 + __ = 20

22 - __ =15


To work out the answer to the addition question we can count from 11 to 20 and to solve the subtraction question we can count from 22 back to 15 which will give us the answer.


There are questions on fractions of amounts which we looked at last week, for example:

1/3 of 9 =




We know to draw 3 circles because we are looking for 1/3 and the denominator is 3, we then need to share 9 out equally.




Once we have shared 9 out equally we need to count one of the circles as the numerator is 1 so 1/3 of 9 = 3.


We will also need to divide to solve the Maths mystery activity. We know that division means to share out equally, for example:


10 divide by 2 =




When we have shared 10 out equally between the 2 groups we know that the answer is 5.

We would like you to download the Chinese New Year document that is in the resources section of the class webpage and to work through each page carefully to answer the questions, find the clues and solve the mystery.

Times Tables


You are doing so well with your times tables and we want you to keep up the fantastic effort so please take this time to practise your 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables. When you are practising your times tables please make sure that you are not doing them all in order as this will become very easy and you will remember the pattern, you need to know them in any random order such as


3 x 3 = 9

3 x 7 = 21

3 x 2 = 6


If you would really like to challenge yourself start learning the division facts for each time table, for example:


9 divide by 3 = 3

21 divide by 3 = 7

6 divide by 3 = 2


11:35 – 12:25



As it is Chinese New Year today and China has been our topic in Geography this half term we will be creating our very own China acrostic poem. An acrostic poem is a poem where the first letter of the first line spells out a specific word. The poem below is an example of an acrostic poem all about winter.




During our online lesson we will begin to write our poem all about China, we know that you have learnt a lot of exciting facts which will be really useful during the lesson. If you would like some more information about China there are some PowerPoints in the resources section of the class homepage which have lots of interesting facts that you could include in your poem.

Golden Time


It is the last Golden Time of the half term and we think that it shouldn’t just be children who get to enjoy the afternoon doing something that they like but also adults too. We know that adults have been working incredibly hard to support you with your home school learning and they deserve a break. Please have a chat with people in your house and decide on an activity to do together, this might be sharing a book, watching a movie together, listening to some music or playing a game. In the classroom we will be baking cakes together.


2:05 – 2:20

Today we will be reading the story of Chinese New Year.
