Below is a link to Cracking Maths

​-Each day ask your child the following questions: What day is it? What day was yesterday? What day will tomorrow be? What date is it? What season is it? What month is it? What date will this day next week be? etc..

Subtraction 

Information for Parents

-A big part of maths in 2nd Class is doing subtraction sums where we must rename. This is revision for the boys but if they are having trouble, look back at the example on page 76 in Cracking Maths 2nd Class 

Cracking Maths Unit 31  Subtraction 4 pages 122-126.  https://www.gillexplore.ie/products 

  Remind the boys that when doing subtraction sums across the way, we can check the answer ourselves by adding the answer and the number we are subtracting, if the answer is the first number in the sum, then we are right, for example   16-___=12   16-4=12   when we add 12 and 4 we get 16. By doing this each time the boys can actually correct their own work. 

 

Week 2 Maths 

 

-Each day ask your child the following questions: What day is it? What day was yesterday? What day will tomorrow be? What date is it? What season is it? What month is it? What date will this day next week be? etc..

Subtraction 

Information for Parents

-In 2nd Class the boys need to be very familiar counting up to 200. 

 

-Cracking Maths 2nd Class Unit 36 Subtraction with the 101-200 Square. pages 136-138.  https://www.gillexplore.ie/products 

 

-Before completing Unit 36, play some games using the 200 square on page 137. Ask questions like…. 

  1. Put your counter on number 163. 
  2. Put your counter on a number with 7 units. 
  3. Put your counter on a number that has 4 tens. 
  4. Count how many numbers have 9 tens. 
  5. Put your counter on any number between 144 and 154. 
  6. Put your counter on any number smaller than 121.
  7. Put your counter on a ten number (number we say when counting in 10s) 
  8. Put your counter on 136  and jump back 9 (check that they can go up and down the 200 square correctly) 
  9. Put your counter on 128 and go back 10 (some kids will initially count back 10 but over time help them to see the pattern that every time we go back 10 jumps the answer is always just above the starting number)

-If you print out a “200 Square” you could make it into a game of snakes and ladders.

Preparation for the Gospel:

Reader:       Mary, the mother of Jesus, looked back at everything that had happened and 

                     and wondered what it meant.

 

Mary:           I remember the shepherds coming into the place where we were in Bethlehem.

                     They gazed at the baby in such wonderment.  They were good men, full of joy

                      they kept saying that everything that had happened was planned out by God

                      long ago.  They said God had come to live among them.

 

Shepherds:  This is God’s work.  The baby will save our people. God’s blessing has come

                      to all of us.

 

Mary:           And there was Simon and Anna, a holy man and women in the temple who

to see God’s son. Simon blessed me and he said I would have much pain and sorrow in the future.  It left me thinking what does God really want me to do.? I suppose it will unfold at time goes on.

Gospel:                                                                                                               

A reading from the Gospel according to Luke (2:16-21)                   

The shepherds hurried off and found Mary and Joseph and saw the baby lying in the manger.  They told Mary and Joseph what an angel had said about the child.  They were  amazed at what the shepherds said.  Mary remembered all these things and thought deeply about them.  The shepherds went back, singing praises to God for all they heard and seen; it had been just as the angel had told them.

This is the Gospel of the Lord.

Story

 

 

Jack was eight years old when his Mum became very ill and was taken to hospital.

Jack was feeling very sad because he missed having his Mum at home.

When Jack went to see his Mum, in hospital he always had a sad face.  No matter how hard O

of the nurses looked at Jack and said, “Cheer up Jack, your Mum is getting better.”

Jack knew the nurse was right, but he still could not smile.

He hurried into his Mum room and climbed onto beside her.

As he did, he looked at the picture of Mary that hung above the bed.

His Mum saw him looking at the picture.

“Do you know Jack” she said quietly,” You have two mothers?

One of them is me, right here next to you and the other is Mary in heaven.”

Jack thought about this.  His Mum gave him a big hug and said,

“Why don’t you ask Mary, our mother, to help you when you feel sad and lonely,” she said.

“Mothers always want to help.”

Jack didn’t say anything, but in his heart, he asked Mary to help him.

That evening when he was in bed when the light was out

He remembered the picture of Mary.

He closed his eyes and whispered to Mary,

“Help me to be happy and to be able to smile for my Mum

when I go to see her tomorrow in the hospital.

Jack closed his eyes and holding his favourite Teddy bear in his arms,

he fell fast asleep.

Next day, when he climbed up on his Mum’s bed,

the first thing he saw was the picture of Mary above the bed.

Slowly without thinking, a big smile spread across his face and he gave his Mum a big hug.

Jack’s smile made his Mum so much better.
