To support your child's learning during school closures we have uploaded  Home Learning folders for each year group which have been supplied by two companies;  Classroom Secrets and Twinkl, both online learning systems that we use as part of our daily lessons and planning.

Additionally there is a list of activities your child could do in anticipation of returning to school, hopefully in the summer term! See 'Home learning activitiies Greyfriars class'.

We have also incuded the following link which may be of help should you need to explain the Coronavirus to your child.

There are also some fun activities, football related, for children to complete, click on the sheet below, there is also an answer sheet.

Make a map

In Year 2 children use mathematical vocabulary to describe position, direction and movement,including movement in a straight line and distinguishing between rotation as a turn and in terms of right angles for quarter, half and three-quarter turns (clockwise and anticlockwise).

Talk about your map, what will it need to show?  Discuss the need to make the map clear.  When drawing the map use directional and positional language; describe position, direction and movement, including whole, half, quarter and three quarter turns. Use  language including: left and right, top, middle and bottom, on top of, in front of, above, between, around, near, close and far, up and down, forwards and backwards, inside and outside. Ask children if they can draw their map to scale, or calculate the area or perimeter of buildings on the map. 

What about making a 3D map!!

Baking activities

In Years 1 and 2 children learn to compare and describe measures, for example heavy, light, heavier, lighter.  They begin to choose and use standard units kg and g as well as temperature using °C. 

Make a maths game

In Year 1 children learn to count to and across 100, forwards and backwards; they count in multiples of 2, 5 and 10.  In Year 2 they count in steps of 2, 3, and 5 starting from 0 and also in steps of 10 from any number both forwards and backwards.

The maths game can include any of the counting objectives the children learn; keep it simple and fun so that the children can bring it in to share with their friends.
