Curriculum Overview for the Year

Reading at Home

Supporting your child with Maths at home: (Focuses on quick recall of counting in 2s) (Focuses on quick recall of counting in 2s) (number bonds to 20) (doubles to ten and then progress to doubles from 5 to 15) (halves to ten and then progress to halves between 5 and 15) (we have been using this interactive app in Maths particularly looking at addition, subtraction, multiplication and division through the number frames application) You can also use this application for fraction practise.


Practical maths:

- Using pasta can children make different groups to practise multiplication (e.g. 7 equal groups of 5 pasta shells  is 35.)

- Using pasta can children share it out to practise their division (e.g. 30 pasta pieces shared between 6 equal groups is 5)

- If children are able to do this confidently could they tell you both sentences for a group of pasta (e.g. 1) 30 pasta pieces shared between 6 equal groups is 5. 2) 6 equal groups of 5 is 30 pasta pieces)

- Have a go at multiplication and division games mentioned previously on the class page.

- Practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s (ensuring children do this past 10x2, 10x5, 10x10)

Games to play with the dice:

  1. Tug of war: Draw a line from 0-50. Both players start at 25. One player rolls the dice adding up to 50 from 25, one player rolls the dice subtracting from 25 down to 0.

2) Following the same concept 2 players could take away from 50 until they get to 0.

3) Following the same concept 2 players could add until they get to 50.

4) Roll two dice, which numbers can you make with the dice? Which is the biggest? Which is the smallest? How many tens and ones are in each number? Can you add them together? Can you take one away from the other?
