During the fifth week, the children are welcome to have a go at the following;
MATHS - Addition and subtraction
These plans are particularly useful and there is a lot more to them then first appears. Have a look at the whole plan.
Worksheet Activities (these activities are place value rather than statistics but are important tasks)
Children can continue to access the mymaths.co.uk and educationcity.com websites to consolidate their learning.
Starting this week, I will be attaching full tests rather than half-tests. For these, children should have around 35 - 40 minutes to complete it. I would then normally go through the answers with the children and show them if and where they have gone wrong. Here is the test for this week;
This is a set of problem solving questions. Please could you do around 10 questions a week. Once they have had a go, I would then go through the questions and explain the answers and if they have got any wrong, explain why.
It would be important for the children to keep up with their times tables. If you would like to know where they are up to, please email me.
These websites are excellent for maths games too;
