BIG MATHS:  Maximum 10 minutes

 

Fact Families 3:  Give your child a missing number problem.  They write out a fact family (two additions and two subtractions) in order to find the answer.  For example:  ? + 17 = 25

 

Your child would write:  ? + 17 = 25

                                      17 + ? = 25

                                       25 - ? = 17

                                       25 - 17 = ?

The last calculation is probably the easiest to work out enabling them to find the missing number.  Try these...

  • 14 +  ? = 30
  • ? + 7 = 21
  • ? - 9 = 18
  • ? - 7 = 21

 

LEARN ITS:  Practice your 3x table using hit the button of any other method you like!  They have some good resources for times tables on the espresso website if you want to check those out?  Also check out the link below to learn your tables

Measuring length:

 

You will need a ruler

 

Discuss the things we would measure in mm, cm, m and km.  Go around your house and measure 10 items with a ruler.

 

Complete pg 23 of pupil work book.  We have practiced doubling and halving in big maths lots of times.  You should know what half of 30, 50, 70 and 90 are off by heart!

 

For 24cm you might need to use our other big maths methods for doubling/halving; here is an example...
