Assessment Week

This week in school we will be doing a number of assessments.  There are some that you can carry out at home and there are others that will need to be completed in school.  If your child is off please do not worry as we can do this on their return to school. smiley

Reception Mental Maths

 

Monday - Counting up to 20 forwards and backwards from any given number.  Can you create actions to go with your counting so that you are active at the same time?

TuesdayQuick fire…one more/one less than...can you find one more than...(use numbers within 20)

Wednesday (longer Mental Maths, due to extended writing) - Click here to practise reading addition number sentences and finding the answer.  It involves adding 1 more.  Your child can work within 10 or 20, depending upon how confident they are with their number recognition and finding one more.  Play Chopper Squad to continue to find numbers that are one less/one more than a given number. 

Thursday - Click here to play the Daily 10 game.  Choose level 1, Subtraction, Up to 20 (1 less).  Encourage your child to put the number in their head and count back one to find the answer.  The more practise they have the quicker they will be able to find the answer. 

Friday - Quick fire addition and subtraction - listen to your grown ups and work out the answer to the addition and subtraction number sentences, e.g. 5 + 5 = 10, 8 + 2 =, 10 - 4 = 6.  Encourage your child to use their fingers to work out the answer or count forwards and backwards if working with numbers within 20. 

Year 1 Mental Maths

 

Monday - Counting forwards and backwards from any given number within 100.  Count in 2s, 5s and 10s. 

Tuesday Quick fire…one more/one less than…can you find one more than...one less than... (use numbers from 0 -100). 

Wednesday (longer Mental Maths, due to extended writing) - Click here to practise reading and finding the answers to addition number sentences.  Your child should be able to add within 20.  Once you have warmed up with this activity please click here to practise addition in different contexts.  Please choose Level 1 - Addition.  You can pick any of the games within this level and concept. 

Thursday - Click here to play the Daily 10 game.  Choose level 1, Subtraction, Up to 20 (1 less).  Encourage your child to put the number in their head and count back one to find the answer.  The more practise they have the quicker they will be able to find the answer. 

Friday - Quick fire addition and subtraction- listen to your grown ups and work out the answer to the addition and subtraction number sentences, e.g. 15 + 5 = 20, 8 + 12 =, 20 - 4 =   Encourage your child to use their fingers to count forwards and backwards to find the answer.  They can of course continue to use their fingers as a strategy. 

Monday 

 

A few weeks ago we were learning about addition and subtraction. 

We are going to be revisiting that again this week. 

 

It's time for a game...are you ready?  Look at this picture. 

How many number bonds to 6 can you find?  How long did it take you?

 

 

  Well done!  How did you work it out?  Did you use your fingers? Count on?  Or perhaps you were able to recall these facts from memory.  Model strategies to support this working out. 

Here is another one.  How long will it take you this time?

Fantastic...and now a final one!

 

Activities -

Receptions - Counting assessment...I can count up to...

Ask your child to count the objects out as you drop them into a pan (you could use pasta, beads, or anything that you have a lot of).  What number can they count up to reliably?  Give them a random selection of objects.  Can they count them accurately? 

Year 1s - A challenge - Find all of the number bonds that total 20.  How many can you find?  Have you remembered the inverse?

Tuesday 

I wonder...can you tell me what these words mean?

less than          take away           subtract            minus            fewer

 

We are going to use these words to work out the following questions.  How can you work it out?  What does take away mean?  What will happen to the number that you started with?  It's going to get smaller.

 

 

 

Let's try another one... What does this mean?  How will you work it out?  What was the answer?

 

 

And another one... This one is tricky because you haven't got 12 fingers! 

How can you work it out?  Will your number be smaller or larger?  

Model how to count back to find the answer to this problem. 

 

 

Activities:

ReceptionNumber recognition/ordering numbers.  Using flash cards ask your child what each number says.  Are they able to put them in the correct order?  If they recognise all numerals up to 20, please see if they can read any other numbers within 100 (this is a Year 1 expectation so please do not worry if they are not able to). 

Year 1:  Number recognition - How many numbers can you recognise from 0 -100?  Are there any that you have found difficult?  If so, please practise them this week.  

Wednesday

Longer Mental/Oral starter today due to Extended Writing (see above).  This session today is about practising addition and subtracting and finding one more/one less of any given number.

Thursday

We have been practising our addition and subtraction skills. 

Have a look at this number sentence...there is a missing number! Oh no!  Can you help me work it out?

 

 

Ok so we know that we have 7 but we need to get to 12.  How many more do we need to add? Share your ideas with a grown up.  You could get 12 objects and then add more to get to 12 or you could count on like this....put 7 in your head and count up to 12 on your fingers.  

 

 

Have a go at this one... how can you work it out?  Can you apply the same strategy?

 

This time the number sentence has been flipped around but it still means the same.  20 is equal to 18 add something.  You can still put 18 in your head and count on.  How many more did you need to make 20?

 

Have a go at the last one...

 

 

Activities:

ReceptionWriting numbers – which numbers can your child write from memory? Focus on the numbers up to 10 first and then move on to numbers up to 20. This can be on a sheet of paper, a whiteboard, a blackboard, outside on the ground with chalk. 

Year 1: Problem solving - read the problem cards and find the answers.  What strategies will you use to find out the answer?

Friday

We have been thinking about addition and subtraction this week.  Below are some games that you can play with your grown up to practise your addition and subtraction skills.  Have fun!
