Year 2

Please feel free to contact the Year 2 team at

Year2@horncastleprimary.co.uk if you have any questions, or want to show us some work, or just say hello. Take care and we hope to see you all soon.

Friday 17th July

Hurray for Friday! Here are your final Year 2 tasks!smiley

Maths

See if you can work out this puzzle- At the water tap there are two containers: one holds 5 litres and the other holds 3 litres. How can you pour exactly 7 litres of water into a bucket?

You could always try it!

Measure me, treasure me !

Can you find the approximate age of a tree using just a tape measure or piece of string?

First measure the distance around the trunk roughly one metre from the ground.

As every 2.5cm of width of the trunk (girth) is around one year’s growth, you can then work out the age of the tree.

For example, a tree with a trunk measuring 100 cm will be roughly 40 years old (100 ÷ 2.5 = 40).

Or to make it easier to work out – every 10 cm = 4 years.

If you can’t get outside, just get your grown up to stand still and use them to measure (they’ll have loads of fun pretending their arms are branches!)
