Week 5 1st -5th February

Maths practice for the majority of children is now on showbie. Our next step will be to put lessons on line. The practice sheets can be clicked on and the tools used to write on screen. In this way we can see the learning. Please do this or send a picture of your work as we need the evidence that it is being done! Practice sheets for lessons 1- 4 have now been removed so it is important you keep up to date. Lessons 5- 8 will stay on for the week.

Remember you can also send in pictures of other practical maths such as cooking. 

Week 4: 25th January



Those children learning at home can now access the practice pages for the maths scheme we use in school.In school the children attempt these with support and after a practical session with the teacher. I have uploaded some text book pages which you can go through with your child first. There are currently 6 lessons on Showbie which is the work covered over the last couple of weeks. Please use practical equipment to help your child and let me know if you need anything at home to help you with this.

Aim to do some maths four days a week and on the fifth do play/ real life maths such as cookery, counting something while out on a walk, water / sand play.


The younger children do not do the same maths and should continue with individual target work sent by email or on Showbie. Most of the maths activities for them are play based

Have a look at this site for some ideas 

Week 3 18th January 2021

We are continuing with subtraction. This short song will help your child remember the sign used and some of the vocabulary around subtraction ( A song about the basics of subtraction KS1 maths bbc)

Continue with the practical work as explained in last weeks documents.

Term 3 January 21

 This term we are starting by focusing on subtraction for a couple of weeks. This year we are following a scheme which has been rolled out across the school which aims to deepen understanding of maths concepts to allow children to master them.

I will put work up at Early and Core levels and will let you know which to use. Those not yet at these levels will be emailed personal targets.

Early Subtraction 1

Maths Term 6 week 2

Maths week 4 3D shape

Maths in Rainbow Room

I have set individual targets for Maths. Please email me on for your child’s targets.

At home make maths as fun and practical as you can. Remember Maths is not only number. It includes shape, space, measure and data handling.

Example of activities with their toys

Line up 7 toy cars.

Ordinal numbers

Which car is first/ last/ second/ third?  

Move the red car into the last place.

Counting, Addition and subtraction

How many cars in the line?

Hand over 2 more cars, We have added 2. How many now? (Repeat the action and the vocabulary)

Count the cars. Take 3 cars away. 7 cars take away 3 cars. How many left?

Use maths words like total and subtract as well to reinforce vocabulary.

One to one correspondence and number bonds.

On a large piece of paper draw a car park with 10 parking spots.

You could ask the child to number the spaces or write with highlighter for them to overwrite numbers. (Number formation)

Can all the cars find a space?

How many empty spaces will there be?

If two more cars park how many empty spaces now?

If four cars drive away then how many are still in the car park?
