Numeracy

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 Revision

 

This week your child should revise the number stories:

Group 1 – revise stories 5 to 10

Group 2 – revise stories 5 to 10

 

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

Revise counting forwards and backwards in 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s within 100

 

For example:

 

Start at 41 and count forwards in 10s to 71.

 

          41, 51, 61, 71

 

Start at 70 and count backwards in 5s to 40

 

          70, 65, 60, 55, 50, 45, 40

 

Number Work Activity 1

Choosing the correct operation

 

Complete the attached worksheet by deciding whether each question should be addition or subtraction and writing the correct operation to complete the question.

 

For example, is this an addition or subtraction question

 

  • 5 ? 4 = 9
  • this should have an addition symbol as 5 and 4 is 9
  • this question should be written as 5 + 4 = 9

Number Work Activity 2

NHM Check-up

  • continue the sequence of numbers
  • numbers before, after and in between within 100
  • 1 or 2 more and 1 or 2 less
  • Counting money in 10s and 1s
  • Match the ship to the buoy

  • 10 more and 10 less
  • Continue the sequence by counting in 10s
  • Identify the largest and smallest number in a group
  • Order numbers within 100
     

  

Number Work Activity 3

NHM Check-ups

  • Addition questions, remember to start with the biggest number and add on the smallest number.
  • Missing number addition, for example, 9 add ? = 12, put 9 in your head and count up to 12 to see how many more is needed.

  • Addition questions
  • Missing number addition
  • Adding 2-digit numbers – keep the biggest number in your head and then add the units and then the tens.
    • For example, 45 + 15 =

 45 + 5= 50

 50 + 10 = 60

 

 

Problem Solving

 

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

 

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

 

Activity – Total Patterns

 

  • Look at the 1 – 100 square on the worksheet
  • Choose a favourite colour
  • Colour in all those numbers which add up to 7 when the digits are added together e.g. 52 because 5 + 2 = 7 or 25 because 2 + 5 = 7
  • Choose a different coloured pen
  • Colour in all those numbers which come to 7 when one digit is taken away from another e.g. 92 because 9 – 2 = 7
  • What do you notice?
