Week Beginning 4th May

DAY 1 – Monday 4th May

Maths Lesson 1 Arithmetic.

  1. Warm up: Marching on the spot count up to 100.
  2. Daily 10 challenge, ordering numbers - https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10

Select level 1, choose ordering, finally click smallest first and then repeat but with largest numbers first.

  1. Addition and subtraction questions:
  • Be careful to look at the symbol carefully.
  • Remember to draw spots to help you with addition problems and to cross spots out to help you with subtraction problems.
  • Also try and spot questions that you know the answers to without working them out for example doubles of numbers or number bonds to 10.
  • Once you have completed the challenge mark your questions with your adult. If you make a mistake, before your adult tells you the answer see if you can spot the calculation error yourself to help you learn from your mistake and become a super Mathematician!

Maths Lesson 1

Click on the link below – Week 3 (WC 4th May), Lesson 1.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

  1. Follow the video.

2. On the web page click to download the activity sheets.

OP TIP: Ten frames are something the children are used to working with. It is really easy to make one at home: you can draw a grid on a piece of paper and then you need 10 circles cut out, colour one side of your counters in and leave the other side white. You can then also draw a part, part, whole model and use your counters on this as well to help represent the numbers, especially in missing number problems.

If you have a printer at home, you can print the worksheets. If you don’t have a printer then it is just as easy to use a piece of paper. Still use the worksheet for the visual representations of the number bonds to help solve the problems.

 

Literacy – Lesson 2

Let’s read the next part of the story ‘ How To Grow A Dinosaur’  – watch the two clips below.
