Numeracy

Week beginning 8th 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. 

 

 

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 18 subtraction

Group 2 – story of 16 addition

 

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 forward and backwards in 10s and 1s within 100.

 

For example:

 

Start at 10 and count forwards in 10s and 1s to 55.

 

            10, 20, 30, then change to 1s, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, then change back to 10s, 45, 55

 

Start at 70 and count backwards in 10s and 1s to 10.

 

70, 60, 50, 40, change to 1s, 39, 38, 37, 36, change to 10s, 26, 16, change to 1s, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10

Number Work Activity 2

Revision of addition facts to 20

 

NHM Check-Ups Booklet

Page 1

 

First part, is adding 10 to the first set of numbers and then adding 9 to the next set of numbers.

 

To add 9 they can either count on 9 from the number or add 10 and then subtract 1.

 

For example

6 + 9 =    

6 + 10 = 16 – 1 = 15

 

Second part, is straightforward adding, remember to put the biggest number in your head and add on the smaller.

 

Third part, match the questions to the answer.

First part, add the calculations.

 

Second part, the answers to the first set of 3 questions are 12 and then the answers to the second set of 3 questions is 14.  The children need to put the number in their head and count up to the answer to see what the missing number is.

 

For example,

 

9 add ? = 12

Put 9 in their head and count up to 12 to see how many more is needed.

 

Third part, the children have to find two windsurfers that add up to either 13 or 15.

 

Fourth part, missing number addition.  Put the number in your head and count up to the answer to find the missing number.

First part, add the baskets together to find the answer and then add the nests together to find the second answer.  Then, missing number addition, put the number in your head and count up to the answer to find the missing number.

 

Second part, missing number addition, put the number in your head and count up to 20, as all the answers are 20.

 

Third part, straightforward addition.

 

Fourth part, add 3 numbers to find the answer, start with the biggest number.

 

Number Work Activity 3

Revision of subtraction facts to 20

 

NHM Check-Ups Booklet

First part, straightforward subtraction.  Put the biggest number in your head and count back the smaller number.

 

Second part, subtraction questions, but using different words that mean subtraction.

 

Third part, subtraction questions, but in word problem form.

 

Fourth part, missing number subtraction.  Put the biggest number in your head and count back the answer.

 

For example,

 

11 - ? = 4 to work out the missing number, rearrange the numbers as 11 – 4 = 7, the answer is 7

First part, subtraction questions.

 

Second part, subtraction questions, but using different words that mean subtraction.

 

Third part, subtraction questions.  Match the hot air balloon to the basket.

 

Fourth part, missing number subtraction.

 

For example

15 - ? = 9 to work out the missing number rearrange the numbers as 15 – 9 =

Or

? – 7 = 7 when the first number is missing, add the remaining numbers to find the missing number  7 + 7 =

 

Page 6

First part, subtraction from 20.  Remember there are two ways to do these questions.

20 – 7 = Put 20 in your head and count back 7 to find the answer.

Or

20 – 12 = Put 12 in your head and count up to 20 to find the difference.

 

Second part, subtraction questions, but using different words that mean subtraction.

 

Third part, missing number subtraction.  Put the biggest number in your head and count back the answer.

 

For example,

 

13 - ? = 4 to work out the missing number you arrange the numbers 13 – 4 = 9, the answer is 9

 

Fourth part, is a mixture of addition and subtraction facts.

Topic Work

 

Topic Maths includes Shape and Space, Measures and Data Handling.

We complete 1 piece of Topic Maths per week.

 

Topic Maths Activity

Time - Quarter past

Activity
  • Use the clock on Top Marks and show 9 o’clock and explain this is when school starts.
  • Move the minute hand on to 9:15 when we go to assembly.
  • Ask your child how many minutes has the minute hand moved on?  Help them count on in 5s to show that they have moved on 15 minutes.
  • Explain to them that when the minute hand is pointing to the 3 it is quarter past and the hour hand has moved just past the hour (9).
  • Show them different quarter past times.
  • Then show them they can write the time as ‘quarter past 9’ or the digital time is 9:15
