12.6.20

Maths: Ask your child to recall what doubling means. Complete all or some of the activities below depending on the resources you have:  Ask your child to build a small tower using bricks, say 2 bricks tall. Ask them to build another tower that is double the height, in other words 4 bricks tall. Repeat this activity allowing your child to decide how tall the second tower should be each time. You could roll a dice to generate how tall the first tower needs to be.  Ask your child to thread beads, cotton reels or pasta tubes on a shoelace: can you make another one that is double the length? Repeat using different numbers. Make a line of traffic using 3 toy cars. Can you make another line of traffic that is double the number of cars? What is double 3?

11.6.20

Maths: Talk about the word “double”. Have you ever had a double ice cream? What does a double pram look like? Which is the double in a game of dominoes? Establish that double means the same again.  Use paint to explore doubles: fold a piece of paper in half, paint 1 spot on one side (finger print or a cork from a wine bottle is perfect), fold the paper and press down. Open it up and count the spots. How many are there altogether. Establish that double 1 is 2.  Repeat with numbers to 6.

10.6.20

Maths:  Today you are going to be a “number detective” You will be given a number to work out as many facts as you can about that number.  This week your number is 9.

Grown ups – to support your child to work out the answers, e.g. “find one more”, use practical resources, such as a tower of 9  lego pieces, challenge your child to add one more piece.  Or 9 cars in a row, ask your child to add another car.  

 

To add and subtract practically, use a number line such as the one attached.  We use these in school by putting our finger on the number, in this case 9 and counting on.  So, for example, 9 + 5, we would put our finger on number 9 then count on five “jumps”, landing on 14. Complete as much as you can of the sheet (attached below)
