Teamwork - Respect - Aim High

Summer Term 1 Week 1 20th- 24th April

I just want to take the opportunity here, to say well done to everyone for their efforts so far on Sumdog and TTRockstars. I have seen some impressive scores! I hope you have been managing to battle each other (remotely of course!). Keep it up - you are doing so well!

Fluent in Five

In the document below, there is a slide per day with arithmetic questions that the children are used to completing straight after playtime, before we start our maths lesson. 

Daily maths lessons with White Rose Maths

Click on the White Rose Maths link below:

We have had really positive feedback from the children who've completed these online so I hope that you find them helpful. 
Please have a go at the daily lessons provided by White Rose and start from week 1 Monday 20th. April and revisit if you need to, as each lesson builds on from the last. Move on to lesson 2, when you have got it! Follow the instructions below. There is also a video at the bottom of the page, which you might find helpful.

Watch the video from each lesson and click on Get the Activity to download the worksheet. 

 

It does not matter if you cannot print the worksheet as you can edit through an app like Adobe through the make comment tool or you can talk through the questions with your child. The YouTube video at the bottom of the page explains how to access and use the White Rose Maths worksheets in more detail as well as some other Maths links.

 

It is about understanding the concept rather than completing every question. 

 

You can then go through the answers through Get the Answers. Do not worry if your child has made mistakes as this is a chance to learn. 

 

Complete all 5 lessons from the week you are on and if you wish to move onto the next week to catch up, then please do.
