Numeracy

Welcome 

 

Please find, on this page, the core areas of Numeracy which are covered each week in P3. Each section below will contain an activity to be completed weekly. The activities can either be accessed here or will be found in booklets which have been sent home.  

 

These resources follow the schemes of work covered in P3. If you wish to extend your child's learning please do so based on the content covered on this site. 

 

You will find support materials, including a range of interactive games, to guide your instruction in the Helpful Resources section of the P3 site. 

 

Many Thanks, 

S. Black and L. Neill 

 

Week beginning 18th May 2020

Daily Mental Maths

 

Daily Mental Maths Booklets are a great resource to help revise and reinforce taught mental maths skills. 

 

Children should complete 1 column per day (Mon - Fri) in their Mental Maths Activity Booklet. 

 

 

Tables

 

Children are, as normal, being asked to learn 1 Number Story per week.  

Each story is laid out in your child's Number Stories Booklet which they have received home with them. 

 

Please learn only 1 story per week;

E.G. Week 1 - 14 addition 

        Week 2 - 14 subtraction 

 

This week your child should learn number story:

Group 1 – story of 17 addition

Group 2 - story of 14 subtraction

 

Number Work

In this section we will set out the number work activities as we would teach the children each week. 

 

1. Children will have a mental maths objective to cover each week. This will help to improve quick number recall.

 

2.  Children will have a written numeracy activity to complete each day. This will either be in the form of an uploaded worksheet or will be pages from the New Heinemann Maths (NHM) booklets which have been sent home. 

 

Mental Maths Objective

Mentally count forwards and backwards in 10s from any number within 100.

 

For example:

 

Start at 34 and count forwards in 10s to 94.

 

            34, 44, 54, 64, 74, 84, 94

 

Start at 87 and count backwards in 10s to 17

 

            87, 77, 67, 57, 47, 37, 27, 17

 

 

Number Work Activity 1

Number Stories

 

Group 1 Complete one activity related to the story of 17

 

Group 2 Complete one activity related to the story of 14

 

 

Number Work Activity 2

Subtracting tens and ones/units

 

When completing the subtraction questions-

 

  1. Subtract the ones/units
  2. Subtract the tens
  3. Add the two totals together.

 

For example:

77 - 45 =

  7 - 5 = 2

    70 - 40 = 30

  30 + 2 = 32

 

or

70 - 18 =

Keep the 70 the same and separate the 18 into tens and one = 10 and 8

70 - 8 = 62 (count back 8, in ones, from 70 for e.g. 69, 68, 67, etc.)

62 - 10 = 52 (count back 10 from 62)

 

Complete page 24 in the NHM Addition and Subtraction to 100

 

Number Work Activity 3

Subtracting tens and ones/units

 

When completing the subtraction questions-

 

  1. Subtract the ones/units
  2. Subtract the tens
  3. Add the two totals together.

 

For example:

96 - 53 =

  6 - 3 = 3

    90 - 50 = 40

  40 + 3 = 43

Problem Solving

 

Problem Solving encourages children to think outside the box and apply known strategies to solve common numeracy problems.

 

Encourage your child to complete these activities as independently as possible to cultivate their problem solving skills.

 

Activity – How much money?

 

In this activity there are 4 coins available – 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p.  It might help your child if they had these coins to complete this task. 

 

Your child can only have 2 of these coins in their pocket.  They have to list all the coin combinations they could have.  For example, 10p and 5p =15p or 10p and 2p = 12p.

 

There is an extension activity with the number of coins increasing to 5 – 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p and 20p.

 

Again your child can only have 2 of these coins.  They have to list all the coin combinations they could have.  For example, 20p and 10p =30p or 20p and 5p = 25p.

 

I have included a worksheet to help your child record the coin combinations and information on different strategies your child could use to help them with this activity.
