Week beginning 1st June 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.
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 18 addition
Group 2 – story of 15 subtraction
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 forward and backwards in 2s within 100.
Start at 10 and count forwards in 2s to 34.
10, 12, 14, 16 etc.
Start at 72 and count backwards in 2s to 46
72, 70, 68, 66, 64 etc.
Number Work Activity 1
Group 1 Complete one activity related to the story of 18
Group 2 Complete one activity related to the story of 15
Number Work Activity 2
Inverse operations are opposite operations – one reverses the effect of the other. In primary maths we talk about the inverse to explain how addition and subtraction are linked.
4 + 6 = 10 so 10 – 6 = 4
Revise number stories for 10:-
0 + 10 = 10
1 + 9 = 10
2 + 8 = 10
3 + 7 = 10
4 + 6 = 10
5 + 5 = 10
6 + 4 = 10
7 + 3 = 10
8 + 2 = 10
9 + 1 = 10
0 + 10 = 10
Ask your child - What if 2 + 8 = 10 what does 10 – 8 = ?
Repeat for the other addition facts.

Number Work Activity 3
Give your child a number within 15 and ask them to give you an addition fact and then ask them to rearrange the numbers to give you a subtraction fact.

Topic Maths includes Shape and Space, Measures and Data Handling.
We complete 1 piece of Topic Maths per week.
Topic Maths Activity
Revision of o’clock and half past
The below top marks link shows a teaching clock which gives the time in analogue and digital times. Click on the button that says 'clock face' and this will allow you to show different times on the clock and the corresponding digital time.
When using top marks please change the clock to 12 hour rather than 24 hour for the digital times. You can do this by clicking on the last button on the left hand side of the clock.
NHM Shape, Measures and Data Handling Booklet
If your child has not completed pages 17 and 18 in this booklet please complete.
