Maths

*Please use the maths sheets provided to support your child with their learning in multiplication and division.

Also, please watch BBC bitesize KS1 maths activities on multiplication and division.

Use Daily 10 on the Topmarks website (on the children’s area on the school website) to practise arithmetic skills on levels 1 and 2. You can alter how long your child has to answer each question starting at 20 seconds and working down to 3 seconds as they become more confident and efficient in their workings.

Topmarks also has some useful multiplication and division games which can be used to support your child. See attached for further instructions.

 *Please use the card net provided to create a simple snow vehicle to move a small soft toy from Kathmandu to Base Camp on Everest. Use the design sheet to think about how you can make wheels and axles. Do lots of experimenting with construction type toys or junk to find out how you can make your wheels move freely. Straws or pencils could be used as axles and cotton reels or buttons could be used as wheels. Don’t forget to take a photograph of your finished design.

*Arrangements to pick up home learning resources to follow by email.

Best wishes
