What is a cherry model? 

In maths a cherry model can be used to partition numbers and show parts of a whole number.  Below are some examples showing how you can use cherry models in different ways.

Year 2T

Welcome Back!

 

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all the members of 2T. We have started the year off beautifully. Our first topic this term is 'Once Upon a Time.' We will be learning about different fairytales and using these to inspire our work. We will also be learning to join our handwriting and continuing to improve our spellings. 

 

Homework

Thank you very much for the lovely homework we have had so far. Please be reminded that homework will be checked on a Wednesday. Please complete the times table and spelling activities each week as well as one topic activity. 

 

Reading 

Please ensure that you are reading as much as possible. The reading records need to be signed three times a week. Where possible, please indicate in the reading record when your child has finished a book so we can help your child change their book. 

 

PE and indoor shoes

Please make sure your child has a labelled PE kit in school. We will be doing PE on a Wednesday and we are really lucky to have yoga on a Friday too. Please ensure children have indoor shoes. 

 

Seesaw

As many of you know, in school we use an app called Seesaw. This allows you to have a small 'window' into the classroom. If you are not yet connected to Seesaw , then please speak to your class teacher so that you can be given access. 

 

Times tables 

We are starting to learn our times tables and are starting with the 2 and 5 times tables. Please feel free to try some of these online games to practise at home. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

I am excited to continue with our fantastic work.
