Times tables are important for many aspects of Maths including fractions. Continue to practise the times tables up to 12x. There are many ideas and games online to help you with ideas. Don’t forget the children have personal logins for ‘Times Table Rock Stars’ (ttrockstars.com).
Please sign in to MyMaths (Login for your child should have been sent via email - https://www.mymaths.co.uk/) and complete the tasks set.
Also find below some of the objectives that we were set to teach over the coming weeks. If you’re feeling confident you might like to set your child questions based on these objectives or find materials online to help support. For each point a sample question has been included.
Number and Place Value:
- Recognise the place value of each digit in a 4-digit number (thousands, hundreds, tens and ones) Up to 10,000 (E.g. Ask children to show the value of a number by drawing it in different ways - part/whole, bar model, pictorial)
- Find 10 ,100, 1000 more or less than a given number
- Round any number to the nearest 10,100,1000 (represent on a number line)
- Compare and order numbers beyond 1000
(E.g. give children a list of numbers and ask them to order them from smallest to largest.)
Addition and Subtraction:
- Add and subtract numbers with up to four digits using formal written methods
(E.g. 2536+1734 = , 7689-1253=)
- Solve number and practical problems that involve an understanding of place value and with increasingly large positive numbers.
(E.g. give your child a number problem in a real life context – Tim buys 1236g of flour and uses 987g. How much does he have remaining?)
- Solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presented in bar charts, pictograms and other graphs, e.g. bar charts for discrete data and time graphs for continuous data
(E.g. create a tally together of traffic passing, foot traffic, types of foods in the cupboard etc. Use the data to draw a bar chart. Ask the children questions such as: which was most popular? What is the difference between the least and most? Why do you think the data shows that?)
