          Click here for NumBots

Every day you should do some maths learning for at least 20 minutes.

You might like to start your learning each day by practising your number bonds and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s for 5 minutes. You can do this by singing along to the songs linked below

or by logging in to ‘Numbots’.

This week’s work: (you can do these in any order)

Day One- Patterns

  • Using a variety of objects from around your home, for example marbles, socks, pasta etc create a repeating pattern.
  • Can you create an ABC pattern? (sock, car, book)
  • An ABAC pattern? (sock, car, sock, book/ sock, car, sock book)
  • An AABBAC pattern? (sock, sock, car, car, sock, book/ sock, sock, car, car, sock, book)
  • Have a go at drawing a pattern using 2D shapes.
  • Can you draw an ABC pattern?
  • An ABAC pattern?
  • An AABBAC pattern? 

Day Two- 3D Shapes (Tally Charts and Pictograms)

  • ·3D shape treasure hunt. Look around your home.
  • How many different 3D shapes can you find?
  • Can you find a cube, cuboid, cylinder, cone, pyramid, sphere, triangular prism? For example, a pringle tub is a cylinder, a tissue box might be a cube or a cuboid
  • How could you record what you find?
  • Can you make a tally chart?
  • Which shape did you find the most of? Which did you find the least of? (Do this in your blue exercise book).

Day Three- Arithmetic Practise (Addition and Subtraction)

  • ·This week’s arithmetic practise sheet can be downloaded from the bottom of this page.
  • ·You can print it and fill it in or just write the answers in your exercise book.
  • ·Remember to show your workings and use the methods you have learnt at school, for example a number line, draw your tens and ones or use a column.

Day Four- 3D Shapes

  • ·Look again at the 3D shapes you found around your home.
  • Count the number of edges, faces and vertices on each shape. If the objects are small enough to move could you order them? For example from most vertices to least vertices.
  • Could you make a fact-book about the 3D shapes you found around your home? Remember to include key information about the number of vertices, edges and faces each shape has.

Day Five- Missing Number Problems

  • Missing number problems can be downloaded from this page.
  • ·You can print the page and fill it in or just write the answers in your exercise book.
  • ·Remember to show your workings.
  •  Use your knowledge of number bonds to help you!
