Mental Maths

Mental Maths warm ups continue as normal.  Remember to read each question carefully and work on becoming more accurate as the week goes on.  You should have plenty of time to look over your answers and see where you are making mistakes.  This will help you to avoid making them next time.

This week you should be completing Monday - Thursday pages 56 -57

Tables

This week we will be looking at doubles of multiples of 5.  So any number from 5 up to 95 that ends in a 0 or a 5 you should be able to quickly calculate the double. These calculations should be completed mentally.

e.g. 5+5=

40+40=

65+65=

95+95=

These questions should be worked out in your head and will form the mental maths part of your Friday check up

Numberwork

We are going to continue to work with Money this week.

The following worksheets should be completed at your own speed and take your time to ensure you are confident each time before you move on.  If you made a shop in your house we would love to see pictures.

Topic Maths

A little bit of topic work this week.  This work will focus on using a calendar to work out dates and days of the week.  It will ask you to look at the length of time something has taken.  The important thing to remember is to look carefully at what the question is asking. Is it asking for a day? How long? How many days?

Word Problems

These word problems give us an opportunity to try out all the mathematical skills we have learnt.  Read the questions carefully and decide on the best approach.  Remember to think about the information in the question and decide if it is necessary -  sometimes there are facts and numbers you don't need.  It's up to you to decide.
