Attached below are resources that have been produced by NatWest in-line with their MoneySense school campaign that they launched at the start of 2020. These have been specifically created for use at home as the team are no longer available to visit school to deliver workshops that were planned in for the summer term. The children will learn about coins and notes, their values and how they are used, including how to calculate change. They are high quality and very engaging and I am sure they can be enjoyed by all in the household. There is a learning guide and PowerPoint presentation that introduce the activities. NatWest are also introducing MoneySense Mondays from 4.5.20. These interactive lessons will be broadcast live on the NatWest Facebook page every Monday morning from 10am for young people and parents to watch together.

Hello Year 2

MATHS CHALLENGE - Mistery Portrait Gallery

Can you challenge yourself ?

Maths Times Tables board games 2,3,5,tables wk 5&6

These games are a nice change to learning and helping to embed our times tables. See how fast you can recall the number facts. If you don't have access to a printer, why not design and draw your own.

Some Practical Idea to try
Home Learning Packs Below contains general literacy and maths work. Ideally, a selection on maths and literacy should be completed each day. The documents in this section were handed out in the home learning packs. It is really important that children read as often as possible too. It would be lovely to know what your child has done through this difficult time. A daily diary/ journal would be a great way to keep a record and something that we can share when we get back to school.

White Rose Maths Daily Task

White Rose Maths are creating daily tasks for children and publishing them within the 'Home Learning' section of their website. Below is the link for the Year 2 tasks. If you click on each task, there is audio guidance of how to complete each task which will be really helpful for the children as it explains the tasks very clearly! Simply click on the link below and you will have access to this. We are now on 'Week 2' and White Rose Maths have uploaded the lessons already for the entire week. They will continue to upload like this for the forseeable.

Just follow these four easy steps…
1) Click on the set of lessons for your child’s year group;
2) Watch the video (either on your own or with your child);
3) Find a calm space where your child can work for about 20-30 minutes;
4) Use the video guidance to support your child as they work through a lesson.

Following each video, there are tasks assigned that you can download and the answers to these are also available to you.If your child struggles with these, please do not worry about having to access the daily task within a different year group - that is absolutely fine! White Rose Maths have also created Facebook groups for each year group for further support helping your child should you require it (please copy and paste the link below into your browser and join the group). The team will be online every weekday between 10.00 and 11.00am to share children’s questions, examples and stories via any of their social media channels.

So, as of today, 3rd April 2020, we are officially on school holiday and there will be no more posts on the school website until Monday 20th April. In these uncertain times, the staff of Stanningley thought it would be fun to challenge all the children and their families to decorate an egg over the Easter holidays. We will create a gallery on our website to show all the entries. They can be as whacky and as funny as you like, using whatever material you have to hand. Email your photos, which include your face if possible, so we can see who made which entry, to before the end of the holidays. 

We wish you a safe and happy 2 weeks.
All the staff at SPS.
