Good morning Nightingales
I hope you and your families are well. I am missing you already! Please keep checking the home learning section of class pages on the website. Don't forget you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org, I will be checking every day.
Please make sure you are reading every day. This is the most important thing you can do during your time at home. Ideally you'll be reading lots of different books you have at home- however I know you may be running out of books! I have signed you up to a website where you can access lots of different books to read electronically. Please see instructions for how to access getepic.com
Take a look at the Flags of the World document below. Can you find and draw flags that show halves? quarters? thirds?
1/2 is one whole divided into 2 equal parts.
1/3 is one whole divided into 3 equal parts
1/4 is one whole divided into 4 equal parts
Can you find flags that are unequal?
Can you find the countries on a map of the world?
Can you design your own flags that show halves? quarters? thirds?
I'd love to see your designs? Ask a parent to take a photo of your work and email it to me email@example.com
Please make sure you practice your x2 x5 x10 every day. Try grouping and counting pencils/lego bricks/beads in 2s, 5s and 10s.
Ask someone to time you for one minute.- write numbers in 10s, 2s or 5s
2 4 6 8 10 12 etc how far can you get?
80 85 90 95....what comes next? and next? and next?
We use a website in class called Daily 10. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10
The children will be very familiar with this game. Great for speed practicing!
Choose Level 2, Multiplication, then select individual times tables to practice or you can choose x2 x5 x10 together.
You will need a piece of paper and a pencil to write the answers (no need to write the questions) and then you can check your answers at the end. You can choose the speed- start with 10 seconds, then try 7 seconds. You may even be able to do 5 seconds!
This site is great for all sorts of mental maths- have a play around, try out the fractions- hopefully your child will start to see the relationship between finding 1/2 and the 2 times table.
