Today we are going to look at a mixture of arithmetic problems (A and B activities). Remember, you don’t have to print anything off, just write the number sentence you have used and any working out. For the questions involving time write the answer in words. Draw the coins for the money questions. Choose which activity suits you best A activity is more challenging. Activity C is looking at number bonds within 10.

Things to think about

Is there such a thing as a 14p coin or a 3p coin ?

Are these numbers odd or even 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 ?

Are these numbers odd or even 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 ?

Do you know ½  of 2 and ½ of 4 . Do you then know ½ of 24?

Main activity

Today we are going to look at bar models and how we can use them to help us with word and reasoning problems (A and B). Look at the activities, choose the one which is better for you (A is more challenging). The C activity is looking at bar modelling to 10 (feel free tochange the numbers if it is too easy). You do not need to write out the questions but I would like you to draw the bar models neatly in your book along with the number sentence you would use to work out the answer. Ask an adult if you need help to draw the bar model.

Choose the numbers to work with that suit you best. You can still play 'Funky Mummy', from last week, if you want to.

Main Activity

On Friday (17th April), you chose from quiz A and quiz B addition and subtraction calculations to answer.  You answered questions 1 to 12.  Try questions 12 to 24 on the sheet that you had previously chosen.  I have also added another quiz C, if anyone was finding the other questions too tricky.  Remember to write the number sentences and answers in your books.  You do not have to print anything off.  Also remember to use working out by drawing or using a strategies to help you. The answers are attached.

 

Quiz C is asking you to check whether the addition sentences are correct. Write the addition sentences in your book and give them a tick if they are correct. If they are wrong, put a cross and write the correct number sentences in your book. Use pasta, marbles etc to help you with the number sentences.

Main Activity

Year 2,3 and 4 will be carrying out similar tasks today, to help learn number facts. I want you to log into TT Rock Stars, select Numbots and spend some time (a minimum of 10 minutes) in the 'Story' section. 

After that, spend the next 15-20 minutes or so in the 'Challenge' zone. Some of you might find it a bit easy at the beginning but it does get trickier!

Good luck! I will have a look tomorrow to see how each of you have done.

There are two maths quizzes you can choose from. Quiz A is addition and subtraction facts to 20. Quiz B is more challenging and involves addition and subtraction with numbers beyond 20. There are 24 questions in each. Try questions 1-12 on either quiz (less if you are finding it tricky). Write down the number sentences in your book . Think about using number lines, bar models, sticks and stones (10's and 1's) etc. The answers are attached to the questions but do not peek.

Main Lesson : To measure length and height  to the nearest centimetre (cm).

Activity

Choose a variety of objects and practise measuring the length using a centimetre ruler. 

Remember to line up the object to the zero mark on the ruler e.g.

  

How long is the pencil to the nearest cm?

 

Discuss

Why is it important to start measuring from zero on the ruler?

How can the numbers on the ruler help us?

 

Question

 

How tall is the glass?

 

Find other objects to measure the height of?

 

Activity

In your books draw a line that is:

  • 5cm long
  • 8cm long
  • longer than 4cm but shorter than 7cm
  • a rectangle that has 2 long sides 8cm long and 2 short sides 4cm long

 

 

Discuss

How long is this piece of string?

How can you find out?

 

Would the length of the string change if you changed how it is lying on the ground?

 

Question

 

Wilf has used a ruler to measure the length of the car. 

Wilf says the car is 8cm long. 

Do you agree?

Explain your answer in your book.

Thursday 26th March 2020

Look at word problem sheets A, B and C and choose which is best for you. Try as many as you have time for. If A and B look too tricky, stick with C.

 

Remember to write the calculations you used to find the answer as well as using drawings, bar models and number lines.

Fred makes 3 plates of scones. There are 2 scones on each plate. How many scones did he make altogether?

6
2 2 2

3 x 2 = 6

Wednesday 25th March 2020

Halves and quarters using bar models

Look at both A and B 'Halves and quarters of amounts' and decide which is right for you. Draw the bar models in your home learning books (use a ruler). Fill in the blank spaces in the bar models. Try the extension activity if you feel confident.

Monday 23rd March 2020

 

Non-Unit Fractions

Look at both A and B non-unit fractions and decide which is right for you  (it may be a mixture of both). If you feel that the activities might be too tricky for you look the Year 1 maths activities. Where possible write out the questions and answers in your books.
