Maths

 

Hello all! Firstly, this week we will be having a 3 times tables boost. When you go up to year 3 you will need to know these so we will be practising them a little more each day with the following games and activities. You also have 3 challenge cards to complete each day. These require you to read the question more than once and think carefully about how you could answer them. Good luck and enjoy your week!

Support for Parents

Hello lovely parents. After speaking to most of you last week, it seems that after a long 15 weeks, motivating your children has become increasingly more difficult. Hopefully, this video will give you some support in how to tackle Maths home learning and get the most out of these last few weeks. Some of the key points are mastering number bonds, times tables and having efficient methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We include these with our oral starters and Fluent in 5, so prioritise these activities. Let me know your thoughts on the video. Miss Wilks smiley

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:
