Week beginning 16.11.20
Please continue with Mathletics and TT Rockstars.
This week in maths, we have been doing subtraction if you wish to practise with your child.
We are also learning number bonds to 10 by heart, should you wish to challenge your child on the way to school! Have fun!
Week beginning 2.11.20
This week we are practising adding but really focussing on adding using knowledge of place value and looking at the digits and what they stand for. Remember to get the children to explain how a problem was solved. How did they do it? What did they need to know to solve it? Did they find it hard? why? The more they can explain, the better. The classic answer will be 'I did it in my head!' That is great as we are always encouraging them to use mental maths but HOW did you do it in your head? What did you do?
Week beginning 19.10.20
Continue with TT Rockstars and Mathletics. The children are practising adding and subtracting 10 and 1. Look at which digit changes. Why does it change?
We are teaching the children to reason about their answers. Encourage your child to talk about how they solved a problem. Use sentence starters such as:
I know __________ so it must be _________
The answer was ______ because________
Please encourage the children to verbalise what they are doing. If the say 'I did it in my head' get them to explain how.
Week beginning 12.10.20
Keep going with TT Rockstars! Some of you are getting very competitive with your scores. Mathletics is still progressing with place value and what the digits stand for in a 2 digit number. The children are making good progress so keep up the good work!
Week beginning 5.9.20
Place value is still our topic. Can the children tell you what a digit is? Can they tell you how many tens and ones are in a number? Can they compare 2 numbers and talk about these signs? < and >
