Weekly Warm up (Mental Maths) - Year 1

Monday -  Use the hundred square to help you. (PDF below)  Count from 1 - 100, pointing to the numbers as you count.  Do you notice that all of the teen numbers are in a row, the twenties are in a row, the thirties are in a row and so on?  Count in multiples of 10.  Have you noticed that they are all in a column?  What have all multiples on ten got? Count in twos.  What do you notice? You land on one square, miss a square out and so on.

Tuesday - Number of the Day activity (see PDF below).

Wednesday - Use two tens frames to help you (pdf below). Use something small e.g. coins, small toys or counters to calculate number bonds to 20. e.g. put 15 coins into 15 different squares on the frames. Ask your child 'How many squares are empty?' So 15 + 5 = 20. Try with a different number. This time put 6 coins on to the squares. How many squares are empty? 4. So 6+14=20. Repeat. Do this verbally and try to keep this a quick, short activity. 

Thursday - Repeat yesterday's warm up activity. Try and calculate your answers more quickly. 

Friday - Play this online game to practise your 'doubles' knowledge. Click Here and try to answer as many as you can before the timer runs out. Choose the 'Doubles' button, then choose 'Doubles to 10' section. 

Weekly Warm up (Mental Maths) - Reception

Monday - Practise counting forwards and backwards up to 20.  If you have number cards from 1 - 20 can you put them in the correct order?  Use your knowledge of adding one more to help. 

Tuesday - Quick fire number formation -  Choose a number 0-9 and ask your child to write it on a piece of paper, move quickly to the next number.  Continue to practise any that your child is finding tricky.  If they can form all numbers up to 10, move onto numbers up to 20. 

Wednesday - Use the tens frame pdf to help you. Use something small e.g. coins, small toys or counters to calculate number bonds to 10. e.g. put 5 coins into 5 different squares on the frame. How many squares are empty? 5 + 5 = 10. Try with a different number. This time put 6 coins on to the squares. How many squares are empty? 4. So 6+4=10. Repeat. Do this verbally and try to keep this a quick, short activity. 

Thursday - Repeat yesterday's warm up activity. Try and calculate your answers more quickly. 

Friday - Lay out your number cards 0-20 in a row. Ask your child to close their eyes. Take some of the numbers. When your child opens their eyes, which numbers are missing? (Hint: You could take the numbers away altogether and dot them around the room - ask your child to find them around the room and put them into the right positions on the number line or keep the cards in the number line and just turn them over so your child can have a go at saying the number and then turn the card over to reveal the answer). 

Main Learning

Monday: Mental Maths only (morning PE session).

Tuesday: Watch the video below all about Fractions!

 

Funky Fractions

Reception: Can you choose 5 of these shapes, cut them out and then cut them in half. Use your cutting skills carefully! If you have not got a printer, have a look in your magazines or draw a picture for your child to cut out. 

Year One: Get a piece of paper. Fold it in half. Un fold your paper. Can you see the line down the middle? That shows you the half way line. Put your hand on to one half and say; "one half". Now, fold it in half again (like a closed birthday card). Fold your paper in half for the second time. Your paper is now smaller. Unfold your paper. How many lines are on your paper? (Two). How many sections are there on your paper? (Four). Put your hand on to one of the squares/rectangles. This is called one quarter. Look at your quarter and say; "one quarter". Put your other hand on to another quarter, this is two quarters. Say it with me; "two quarters". Do you notice anything? Two quarters are the same as one half. 

Complete the sheet below. Or ask an adult to draw you some shapes and colour those in.
