I can’t believe that this is the final week of term! It is so strange not seeing you all and being so busy in school, taking work down and sorting out the classroom!
This week’s tasks will follow the same routine as usual but I’ve planned out jobs which have a bit more of a summer/moving on focus. The home learning grid reflects this too and has lots of fun activities for you to complete! You can also refer back to last week’s grid if you wish to complete any of the focused topic, HWB, expressive arts or STEM activities.
We will have a meeting on Monday at 10am for everyone.
Have a happy Monday!
Mrs Muir 😊
Today, we are going to continue our focus on mental maths skills. This type of practice will strengthen your general number skills and your speed.
Task 1a – mental maths
To get your brains warmed up this morning, use this website https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
Here, you can focus on times tables, doubles or halves and so on. This is a great tool for increasing your confidence in mental maths.
Task 1b – mental maths
Your next numeracy task is to complete the ‘Mental Maths Challenge’. This is similar to last week’s challenge and will let you practise a range of different mental maths skills.
If you can’t print out the sheet you need, simply complete the answers on paper or in your jotter.
Task 1c – mental maths
To finish off today’s numeracy, I would like you to spend 15-20 minutes using Number Gym. Remember to focus on the number, bond building and times tables parts of this. If you can’t remember your login details either check with me or look back at your home learning pack.
