Caring, Sharing and Learning Together

# 6th May

This week in maths we have been working on our general mental maths and arithmetic. The children completed an arithmetic paper and then we went through some of the errors and strategies to help us answer them more efficiently. An area we are still finding a bit challenging is taking away- particularly when it is a missing number sentence! We are going to be working on this more in the next couple of weeks.

I have uploaded an arithmetic paper for the children to practice. The questions start off easier and get progressively harder as the quiz goes on. Please allow the children to take their time and try to work out the answer in their head.

The other thing we have worked on is counting in 10s from any number, noticing that the ones number stays the same and the tens number changes. For example:

22, 32, 42, 52, 62, 72, 82, 92

13, 23, 33, 43, 53, 63, 73, 83, 93, 103

69, 59, 49, 39, 29, 19, 9

98, 88, 78, 68, 58, 48, 38, 28, 18, 8

This really helps to calculate more efficiently when they are adding multiples of 10 as they are able to count on in 10s from that number to solve questions like 44+30 and 52-20. Any practice that you can do either by just chanting number patterns in 10s and giving them any questions like the examples below to answer would be great!

12 + 30 =

92 - 30 =

26 + 50 =

65 - 10 =

if they are adding two 2 digit numbers together- we have been partitioning it into tens and ones, then adding them then putting the number back together. An example of this is below:

43 + 22 = 65

40 + 20 = 60

3 + 2 = 5

60 + 5 = 65

Thank you so much for all your support so far- it is really appreciated!
