Mathematics

On this page, you will find day by day maths activities to keep your children engaged and achieving educationally. Please do not worry if you need to complete some of these tasks on different days. If your child is finding the work too challenging, you can find some alternative tasks towards the bottom of this page. Likewise, please feel free to adapt some of the tasks or spend an additional day practising the task again. We have also provided further optional tasks for your children to complete to extend their learning as well as some exciting maths games linked to this week’s activities towards the bottom of this page.

 

Times Table Rockstars 

It has been wonderful to see how hard many of the children have been working on times table rockstars recently. Practise really does pay off and lots of children have been able to increase their speed already which is fantastic! We recognise that answering the questions in one minute can sometimes be challenging. If you would like to change the time in which you answer the questions, please follow the video towards the bottom of this page. Please note, however, that there is not a set amount of questions you need to complete in this time. Instead, the children will be given as many questions as they can answer! For each correct answer, children earn coins which they can then spend in the shop to change the appearance of their avatars.

Home Learning Tasks - Week Commencing 30th March

 

This week, we will be consolidating our learning on measurement as well as revisiting perimeter. We have set the children tasks on https://www.mymaths.co.uk/ to support them with this.

 

Monday’s Task

Have fun and get creative today. Find the height of everyone in your household and record your measurements in your book or on a piece of paper. If you have one, include the height of your pet or your favourite teddy bear! Once you have recorded your data, answer the following questions:

  • Who is the tallest? Who is the shortest? Write your measurements in order from shortest to tallest.
  • What is the height difference between family member A and B?
  • What is the total height of all of your family members combined?

Additional challenge: ask your child to create some questions of their own based on the measurements they have collected. Can they or another family member answer them? As with one of last week’s tasks, you could also ask your child to convert their measurements into millimetres or metres.

 

Tuesday’s Task

Thursday’s Task

Have an extra bit of fun while completing your maths today. Follow any recipe you can where you need to measure in grams. Ask your child to write the recipe down in their book or on a piece of paper and record how many people the recipe served. It is up to you how you choose to present this. It has been lovely to see some of the work that the children have been completing over the last week. If your child is feeling particularly proud of their work, please email us a picture!

Additional challenge: calculate how much of each ingredient you would need if you were cooking for double the number of people. Calculate the amount of each ingredient you would need if you were cooking for half the amount of people.
