Goal: I can solve subtraction problems

To find your problems for today’s lesson, click on the link for the strategy you have been working on in your small group. Remember if you find the strategy too challenging re-watch the video. If it is still hard too follow go back to the previous challenge.

If you, after working on a couple of problems, you find you are really confident with the strategy you are working on try the next strategy.

# Tuesday 08/06 – Maths

Goal: I can name and use subtraction strategies to solve problems.

Today you will do your maths lesson in your small group with your teacher. Make sure you come to your meeting prepared and ready with your maths book, a ruler and a pencil. Get your page ready by writing the date at the top and the learning goal at the top of your page!

# Monday 07/06 – Maths

Goal: I can use known facts, doubles and near doubles strategies to help me subtract.

Listen to the audio below to have the lesson explained to you.

First, look at the examples below and sort them into known facts, doubles and near doubles.

 4 + 4 = 8 6 + 4 = 10 7 + 8 = 15 (7 + 7 = 14 Plus 1 = 15)

Next, use the equations below and figure out the answer using known facts, doubles and near double strategies.

 10 – 9 = 14 – 7 = 19 – 9 = 10 – 3 = 16 – 8 = 15 – 7 = 10 – 6 = 18 – 9 = 7 – 3 = 10 – 5 = 6 – 3 = 9 – 4 = 10 – 2 = 8 – 4 = 5 – 2 = 10 – 4 = 4 – 2 = 13 – 6 =

Then,  think about using this strategy if the digits increase in place value. For example:

 100 – 90 = 140 – 70 = 190 – 90 = 100 – 30 = 160 – 80 = 150 – 70 = 100 – 60 = 180 – 90 = 70 – 30 = 100 – 50 = 60 – 30 = 90 – 40 = 100 – 20 = 80 – 40 = 50 – 20 = 100 – 40 = 40 – 20 = 130 – 60 =

Finally,  set a timer for 3 minutes and practise your skip counting in you book going forward and backwards. Focus on the ones you know you need to work on.

# Maths – Friday 04/06/21

Goal: I can use addition and subtraction to create number sentences.

Today you are going to play date maths!

Date Maths

Using only the digits in today’s date e.g. 4/6/2021 write number sentences that add up to the amounts 1-20! The only rule is that the digits can only be used once.

First, record the digits for today’s date:

Digits: 0 1 2 2 4 6

Next, write addition and subtraction number sentences, or equations, that would add up to each amount from 1-20. For example:

2 – 1 = 1

2 + 0 = 2

1 + 2 = 3

????  = 4

????  = 5

all the way up to = 20

If you think that is a little easy for you, then give yourself a challenge!

• Try and make some number sentences (including the answer) that uses every digit in today’s date. Can it be done?
• Can you make a number sentence using these digits (including the answer) that uses all four mathematical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division)?
• How many 6 digit numbers can be made out of the digits of today’s date? Can you make them all and put them in order from smallest to largest?

Then,  visit top marks to create some fact families. Stick to the addition and subtraction problems (not multiplication and division).  https://www.topmarks.co.uk/number-facts/number-fact-families

Remember, you can also go to Mathletics and work through any tasks your teacher has set, or explore some other games or activities.

# Maths – Thursday 03/06/21

(press play to hear today’s lesson explained to you)

Goal: I can estimate how 1 minute is.

• How long is 1 minute?
• Most of you will be able to say that 1 minute is 60 seconds. But can you describe how long 1 minute is in a different way?

It is useful to be able to get a feel for roughly how long one minute is, so today you are going to use a timer to complete some 1 minute challenges! You might have a 1 minute egg timer at home, or use a timer on a watch, phone, iPad or computer. Here is an online timer you could use: https://www.online-stopwatch.com/eggtimer-countdown/full-screen/

First, draw up the table below in your book: Next, estimate how many of each activity you think you will be able to complete in 1 minute and write it in the table.

Finally, set a timer for 1 minute and do each activity – record the results in the table.

As a challenge you may want to  estimate and test each activity for 5 minutes as well. Is there a way to predict accurately?

Write down anything you noticed about the difference between repeating activities for 1 minute and for 5 minutes.

# Maths – Wednesday 02/06/21

Goal:  I can find angles around my house

Earlier this term we learnt about angles and practised identifying 3 different types of angles. First, draw up a table like the one below.

Next, go around your house and look for different types of angles.

Finally, draw and write them in your table. There is an example to show you (you don’t need to include this example in  your table, but you can if you want). # Maths – Tuesday 01/06/21

Goal: I can count objects in my home

Today you are going to find out about the things in your house and do some counting.

The table below shows different items or objects that you might find in your house.

Your job today is to count how many of each you can find and record it in a table.

First, draw up a table in your book like this: Next, go around your house and count how many of each object you can find. Record it in the table.

• Which object did you have the most of?
• Which did you have the least of?

As a challenge… if you like, you may want to try answering these questions too!

You might need to use some addition strategies to work out the answers.

• How many spoons and forks are in your house altogether?
• How many windows and doors altogether?
• I have 18 forks in my house. How many forks would we have if we add your forks and my forks together?
• Which do you have more of, pillows/cushions or chairs/seats? Can you work out how many more?
• If 4 light switches in your house stopped working, how many would you still have that do work?

Remember to write your work neatly in your maths book. If you want to, you can take a picture of your work and send it to your teacher!

# Maths – Monday 31/05/21

(press play to hear today’s lesson explained to you)

Goal: I can practise skip counting.

First, choose a skip counting pattern you are going to practise.

Next, set a timer for 1 minute.

Then, write it in your exercise book, or you could colour in the sequence on the chart. You can visit www.mathplayground.com/interactive_hundreds_chart.html if you would like to use an online hundreds chart.

As a challenge you may want repeat the exercise trying to beat your previous attempt for how far you can count in 1 minute. Remember to focus on the final digit pattern to make your counting more efficient!
