Maths

Welcome to another week of Maths at home Robins! I hope that you are ready to learn about length throughout the week. If you have a ruler at home you can use it this week, but the activities don't require you to have one. Have a watch of the following videos on the website below to give you a taster into what our week will entail.

Parents

If you are unsure of how to support your child with Maths, please refer to the 'parent support' section of the Robins page where I have uploaded videos of the methods we use in Year 2!

 

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?

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. Watch the following videos and play the games below to warm your brains up:

The Counting by Threes Song

Three Times Table Song (Cover of Uptown Funk)

Counting Robot (counting by 2s, 5s, & 10s)

Fluent in 5 for the term 

  • Ensure you complete 1 page per day
  • Refer to the videos on the 'parent support' page that I have recorded for you. Here you can find examples of the methods we use in school

MONDAY

  • Go through the following PowerPoint to recap what you already know about length
  • Can you explain to a grown up what the words on the PowerPoint mean e.g. equal, longer, shorter?
  • Now, read through the information on the following PowerPoint about how to use a ruler. If you have one at home then maybe you could practice measuring the length of different items
  • If you do not have a ruler then play the game below and practice your measuring skills!
  • Once you feel confident with length, watch the following video for a bit of fun and choose relevant games on the link below to practice what you have learnt
  • Tomorrow, we will put our learning to the test!

TUESDAY 

Compare lengths

  • Once you have completed your Fluent in 5 and oral activities, complete the 'problem of the day' below
  • Click to enlarge it - if you don't have a printer then you can record the answers on a piece of paper
  • Watch the videos from yesterdays lesson again to recap what you learnt
  • Complete the following worksheet
  • Use a green pen (or whatever you have at home) to mark your work against the answers
  • Send me a photograph of your completed work

WEDNESDAY

Order lengths

  • Once you have completed your Fluent in 5 and oral activities, complete the 'problem of the day' below
  • Click to enlarge it - if you don't have a printer then you can record the answers on a piece of paper
  • Can you find 5 different items in your house? Perhaps something like a spoon, TV remote or a piece of fruit
  • Can you order these in length? From shortest to longest?
  • Complete the worksheet below and use the answers to mark your work

THURSDAY

Four Operations with Length

  • Once you have completed your Fluent in 5 and oral activities, complete the 'problem of the day' below
  • Click to enlarge it - if you don't have a printer then you can record the answers on a piece of paper
  • Today, you will use everything that you have learnt over the past few days to answer questions using the four operations
  • Just as a reminder, the four operations are add, subtract, multiply and divide
  • If you need a reminder on how to use these methods then watch the videos on the 'parent support' page linked below
  • Or watch the video that I have attached to remind you of the four operations

The Four Operations

  • Now, complete the worksheet below and mark it using the answers
  • REMEMBER - For addition and subtraction we use 'sticks and bricks'
  • For multiplication, we can count on our fingers
  • For division, we can 'draw the box' by using the bar model
FRIDAY
  • It's the last day of the week! Well done for completing your first full week of home learning
  • Complete the problem of the day
  • And then complete the relevant arithmetic practice
  • If you are in Mrs Parkes Friday group then complete the first page of the Arithmetic paper and perhaps try some of the second page
  • If you are in my Maths group then complete both pages of the arithmetic page and make sure that you show your working out
  • If you are in Mrs Parker's Maths group then complete the arithmetic paper and then have a go at the challenges too!
