L.C. Revise year 1 learning.

For the next three days, we will  be working on mixed activities to remind you of all the things you have learned this year. There will be two sheets a day. Each sheet has three levels. Start at the first and try to complete all 3 levels.

Monday, 13. 07. 20

L.C. Use place value skills to solve a puzzle

Friday, 10. 07. 20.

L.C. Solve word problems using number bonds.

Thursday, 09. 07. 20.

L.C. Number bond challenge- 10, 20 and multiples of 10 to 100

Complete number bonds to 10, 20 and 100. To be year 2 ready, you need to be very fluent ( fast) with at least your number bonds to 10. 

Wednesday, 08. 07. 20

L.C.  Solve a number bond challenge.

Look which rectangles are the easiest to fill in. This will help you with the others.

Tuesday, 07. 07. 20.

L.C. Use and apply number bonds in solving word problems.

Monday, 06. 07.20.

L.C. Practise number bonds.

This Monday you will be completing challenge 3. You will be using bonds to 20, which are your bonds to 10 with an extra 10. Some of them are bonds to 19 which are your bonds to 9 with an extra 10. These are trickier so take as long as you need.

Friday, 03. 07. 20.

L.C. Solve a number puzzle using bonds to 7, 8 and 9.

Here is another tricky Friday puzzle for you! I will post the answers on Monday.

I have also added a code cracker activity linked to our oceans work. Some of you enjoy mystery challenges so you might like to try it.

Thursday, 02. 07. 20.
L.C. Use and apply number bonds to 7, 8 and 9

There are 2 activities today. For the second activity you can look back to the example sheet from last week if you need some ideas.

Wednesday, 01. 07. 20.

Use and apply number bonds to 8.

Tuesday, 30. 06. 20.

L.C. Use and apply number bonds to 9.

Monday 29. 06. 20.

L.C Practise number bonds to 7, 8 and 9.

This week I would like you to take number challenge 2. Like last week, I would like you to keep practising until you can  complete the sheet in 4 minutes. We will be completing puzzles and challenges based on these number bonds later in the week so you will need to know them well.

Top tip    Last week we saw how number bonds to 6 help you to complete number bonds to 7. This week you can use your number bonds to 10 to help you to spot bonds to 9 as we know 9 is 1 less than 10. We know that 5 + 5= 10 so if we see  5 + 4 .it must equal 9 as 4 is 1 less than 5 so the total will also be one less.

Friday, 26. 04. 20.

L.C. Use and apply number bonds to solve puzzles.

These are tricky! You will have to try lots of different number bonds to find a combination that works. I will post the answers on Monday. Have fun!

Thursday, 25. 06. 20

L.C. Use and apply number bonds.

This is a number bond activity we used to practise in class. You are writing as many equations as you can based on the number bond shown.

The first sheet is an example sheet. Read through it to remind yourself of the activity.

Wednesday, 24. 06. 20.

L.C. Use number bonds to 6 to make number bonds to 7.

Tuesday, 23. 06. 20.

L.C. Use and apply number bonds to 6.

Monday, 22. 06. 20.

L.C. Practise number bonds.

When we know our number bonds to all the numbers up to 10, we become very fluent with our addition and subtraction. 

This week we will be reminding ourselves of how number bonds are helpful.

Today and every Monday until the end of term we will be working on number bond challenges.

Today, I would like you to work on challenge 1- number bonds to 5 and 6.

Complete the challenge 1 sheet. Ask a helper to time you.

Repeat and time yourself again.

Continue repeating the challenge,  practising until you can complete the sheet in 4 minutes. This gives you a little bit more than 5 seconds per answer. 

Some of you might challenge yourself to complete it even faster!

Friday, 12. 06. 20.

L.C. Solve money word problems.

There are 2 sheets. Everyone should complete sheet 1 and some of you might like to try sheet 2 as a challenge.

Thursday, 11. 06. 20.

L.C. Coin investigation- finding all possibilities

Find all the possible totals you could make. This looks like it might be easy but it is a high level maths skill and more tricky than it looks.

You don't need to use each coin.

A top tip is to be very organised.

Example  10p, 5p, 2p

Pick one coin. 10p

Use it on it's own                  10p

Then add one other coin.   10p + 5p= 15p       10p + 2p = 12p

Then add two other coins  10p + 5p + 2p = 17p 

You have found all the possible totals using the 10p

Now try all the possibilities starting with the 5p. You have already found most of those combinations but you haven't yet used 5p on its own or 5p + 2p=7p.

Next are all possibilities starting with 2p. You have already found most of the combinations. The only one remaining is 2p on its own.

If you have four coins there will be lots more possible answers!

Wednesday, 10. 06. 20.

L.C. Make totals using coins.

Everyone should complete the first page. The second page is a challenge for those who would like to try it..

Use your place value knowledge.

Check how many tens you need. Use 50p, 20p, 10p coins to make the tens value.

Check how many ones you need. Use 5p, 2p, 1p coins to make the ones value.

09. 06. 20.

L.C. Add money and compare totals

Firstly revise the value of coins by looking at real coins with a helper. Make sure that you can recognise each coin and know how much it is worth.

08. 06. 20.

L.C. Practise addition and subtraction skills.

Use your addition and subtraction skills to crack a code.

Don't forget to choose sensible methods.

If you are adding or subtracting a number that is 10 or greater, use your place value skills. Add or subtract the ten(s) then the ones.

Half term

Maths Activities

Friday, 22. 05. 20

Friday, 15. 05. 20

L.C. Revise fractions and solve word problems.

Today, there is a starter fraction stained glass activity. You can talk through your answers with a grown up if you don't have a printer. You could even try  drawing them out if  you would like.

The main activity is to solve word problems. The challenge is very tricky today.

Three quarters means 3 out of 4 equal slices. 


Thursday, 14. 05. 20.

L.C. Find half and quarter of a quantity

We know now how to find a half and a quarter of a number.

Today you will need to count the objects and decide how many you need to circle ( you can talk through your answer with a grown up).

Remember to count carefully and double check.

Remember a quarter is half of a half.

There are lots of examples. Some of you might like to do them all but all of you should try at least 6.

Wednesday, 13. 05. 20.

L.C. Find a quarter of a number.

Tuesday, 12. 05. 20.

L.C. .Identify Halves and quarters 

You don't need to print this page. You can talk through your answers with a grown up.

Monday, 11. 05. 20.

L.C. Revise fractions of shapes.

We have practised dividing shapes into halves and quarters in class.

A half means that you have 1 out of 2 slices.

A quarter means that you have 1 out of 4 slices.

Two quarters means that you have 2 out of 4 slices ( you have half).

Three quarters means that you have 3 out of 4 slices.

If you cut something into halves and you have 2 slices, you have the whole thing.

If you cut something into quarters and you have 4 slices, you have the whole thing.

Remember the slices always need to be the same size.


Today, I would like you to read through the power point  then to complete the activity sheet. Lots of you will not have a printer so you can talk through the sheet, deciding how many slices you would need to colour in in each example.

Thursday, 07. 05. 20.

L.C. Revise methods of subtraction.

Wednesday, 06. 05. 20.

Months of the Year- question sheet 2

You don't need to answer these questions in your book but you could read the questions and discuss the answers with an adult as an extra activity.

Monday, 04. 05. 20.

L.C. Learn to order the days of the week

Use the first sheet to practise writing the days in order ( you don't need to cut and stick them). Make sure that you pay attention to spellings.

Use the second activity sheet to test yourself. Can you identify yesterday and tomorrow for each day of the week?

Friday, 01. 05. 20.

L.C. Solve word problems- doubling and halving.

Think carefully. Will your answer be a smaller or larger number? Decide if you need to double or halve the number.

Thursday, 30. 04. 20.

L.C. Halving

Wednesday, 29. 04. 20

L.C. Doubling tens.

Tuesday, 28. 04. 20.

L.C. Revise doubles

We have already worked with doubles and halves in class.

It is helpful to remember your doubles to 20 so challenge yourself. Do you just know the answer?

If you don't remember the double, you can use this sheet in two ways. To double 5, hold the number 5 in your head then use the dots to count on 5 more (6, 7, 8, 9, 10). Double 5 is 10.  

If you can print the sheet, you could draw in the missing dots but you should still be holding the number to be doubled in your head and counting on.

Try to learn all your doubles to 20 today as it will really help with the rest of this week's activities.

Monday, 27. 04. 20

L.C. Find missing values

Remember = means equal ( the same as).

You could use your bag of counting objects to help with this activity..

Friday, 24. 04. 20

L.C. Calculating change from a pound

Thursday, 23. 04. 20

L.C. Solve word problems. Adding and subtracting 10s

Today you will be using your skills to solve real life problems.

You will be adding and subtracting 10s.

Remember the special name for a number that is made of 10s and no 1s is a multiple of 10. A multiple of 10 is just 10s!.

Look out for clue words.  Total and altogether usually mean that you have to add.

                                              How many more usually means that you have to subtract.
