Maths

Week beginning 1st March 2021

This week in Maths we will be doing lots of counting, number and place value work. We will start the week by looking at the value of tens and units in 2-digit numbers. We will then start to compare numbers to 100 using the language of greater than, less than and equal to, as well as reasoning using one more and one less. On Thursday we will be doing some place value problem solving linked to The Day the Crayons Quit for World Book Day and on Friday we will have a go at some more number puzzles to apply our skills.

Week 6 wb 8.2.21

This week in Maths we are going to be looking at measuring height and length. There are going to be a lot of practical tasks throughout the week where the children will get the chance to practise the skill of measuring. The children are first going to learn measuring and comparing lengths and height using non-standard measurements (like blocks, hands or pencils) and then towards the end of the week the children will learn about rulers and how we can use them to measure. 

 

Practical tasks you can try: 

- Get items from around the house/garden that are different sizes can your child put them in order from smallest to largest. Does it change when we think about height or length? 

- Ask your children to estimate lengths. How many pencils tall do you think the TV is? 

- Can they pretend to be a builder and measure different items around the house. 

- Use a variety of different items to measure (hands, pencils, books etc.) What changes?

Week 5 1.2.21 

This week in Maths we are continuing to look at division - leading towards reasoning and problem solving activities. Please refer back to last weeks videos, stories and games for practical activities to try with your children at home. Using pasta, socks or anything you can find around the house is a great way of making division very visual for the children. 

 

Note: There will be no Maths lesson on Wednesday due to the Mental Health workshop the children are taking part in on this day. 

                       Week beginning 25.1.21

This week in maths we are learning about halving and moving on to looking at division through sharing. 

Practical activities you can try: 

- Ask you child to share out snacks/fruit between them and someone else. Get your child to count how many each person has and if they are equal. (If they cannot be shared equally ask them why they think the can't be) 

- Go outside and collect a certain number of sticks, pine cones, leaves etc. Ask your child to share them between different numbers. Can they notice any patterns? 

- When playing with toys ask your child to share items between a number of toys. 

- Read one of the sharing stories below and discuss how items can be shared equally.

Week beginning 18th January 2021 

This week in Maths we are learning about doubling and repeated addition. 

Practical activities you can try: 

- You can use a mirror to help your child see doubling. Put a mirror next to a selection of objects ask the children to count the objects and the objects that they see in the mirror. 

- Ask your child to paint half a butterfly or lady bird. Fold over the picture when wet to print the same image on the other side of the paper. Count up all the spots together. (This shows a similar idea https://www.youclevermonkey.com/2016/04/teaching-double-numbers.html) 

- Play a snap or pairs game. Write down numbers and their doubles on paper. Play a game of snap or match up the cards with their doubles.

This week in maths we are learning about counting in 10s and 2s. 

Practical activities you can try: 

- Ask your child to write down counting in 10s/2s. Can they notice a pattern? 

- Ask your child to help pair up socks/sort shoes whilst counting in 2s. 

- Try throwing a ball to each other and see how far you can get counting in10s/2s without dropping it. 

- Write down a number track of counting in 10s/2s but make a mistake. Can your child spot where you have gone wrong?

 

Below are attached some sheets to work on each day. Please double check which group your child is in so they can access the right work. 

 

Attached below are the worksheets that will pair up with the zoom lessons each day. Please double check which group your child is in as it correlates to the worksheet they are set.
