MATHS CHALLENGE WEEK!

 

This week you will be completing several Maths based challenges. We will be recapping the different skills and methods that we have learned this year so make sure you have your thinking caps on! Have a great week and send lots of photos of your practical learning to p.wilks@johnhunt.notts.sch.uk!

Love Miss Wilks x

Before you begin your daily Maths lesson

Do a big stretch! Shake your fingers and get the blood to your brain flowing. You have your fluent in 5 booklet to begin your morning. Can you check your answers and correct any mistakes? If you have completed your fluent in 5 booklet I have attached a new one for each day!

 

Fancy a challenge? Ask someone (a grown-up or sibling) to pick any number. Answer the following questions:

 

  • What is one more?
  • What is one less?
  • What is ten more?
  • What is ten less?
  • Can you count on from this number in 2's?
  • What other similar questions can you think of?

 

Do some counting in your 2's, 5's, 10's and 3's. Follow these links to warm your brains up:

Fluent in 5 for the week

MONDAY

 

  • Here is your first challenge card! Today is all about estimation which means we will be taking a sensible guess. Your mission is to time yourselves completing different activities within a minute
  • You will need a timer! I have attached a recording sheet that you may want to use or you could create your own
  • I have also attached a link to the 'Minute World Records' to see how close you can get!
  • Could you time yourself completing some of the other activities such as 'fastest time to unravel a toilet roll?'
  • Some of the activities may require you to measure length so use a ruler for example, 'How far can you blow a pea?' 
  • Make sure you ask your parents first, have lots of fun and send me photos!
Could you also have a go at these world records? You must estimate how many you can do first and then time yourself!

TUESDAY

 

  • Time for your next challenge! Today we will be recapping shape and number
  • You will need to make your own 'guess who' cards for someone to complete! Maybe you could make them for someone at home or you could email them for me to work out on p.wilks@johnhunt.notts.sch.uk
  • I have attached an example for inspiration as well as a template and a recap of the shapes we have learnt about this year
  • Have fun!

WEDNESDAY

 

  • Go for a walk in your local area and find an item that you can estimate how many there might be!
  • It could be a type of flower, tree, vehicle, animal or even other people
  • Estimate how many you might find and then you can go out and see if you were roughly accurate
  • Some items you might be able to count - for example, you could keep a tally of how many people you see
  • Remember when we made tallies at school? You could do the same in your local area!
  • When you are done you can put your findings into a chart
  • I have attached a word mat with our key vocabulary on to remind you as well as templates to help you record your findings!

 

THURSDAY

 

  • Today our challenge is focusing on number
  • Have a go at the KS1 game!
  • If you fancy a challenge you could play the KS2 game using the cards 1, 2, 3, 5 and 10 as you will be able to multiply those numbers
  • I have attached some cards for you to print out and cut if you don't have any
  • Enjoy!

FRIDAY

  • Because you have worked so hard this week, today you can choose your activity. You have three options to pick from
  • Make sure that you ask an adult for permission on these activities before completing them
  • You will be using multiplication or measurement skills so make sure you are thinking hard!
  • Well done for a great week!
