Class 3 Home Learning

Year 1

This week we have been practising recognising coins and notes and using them to make different prices. Get some coins and ask your child to name the value of the coin. Set up a pretend shop and ask your child to use coins to pay for different items. Begin with items for which they can use one coin to pay (1p, 2p, 5p, 10p). Then move onto prices which will mean they have to use more than one coin (3p, 4p, 6p, 7p). Encourage your child to apply their understanding of addition to combine the correct coins. Can they find more than one way to do it? (2p + 2p = 4p, 1p + 1p + 1p + 1p =4p)

Your child can also use this game to practise these skills:

https://www.doorwayonline.org.uk/activities/cashing-in/cashing-in.html

Play ‘up to 10p’.

Challenge: Try ‘up to 20p’.

Class 3 Home Learning - 22nd October 2020

Year 1

Number bonds are pairs of numbers that can be combined to make a certain total. For example: 1 + 9 = 10, 2 + 8 = 10, etc.  Knowing our number bonds to 10 and 20 by heart really helps us when solving other calculations.  

Number Bonds Memory Game – Put the digits 0 – 10 face down on the table. Take it in turns to turn over two cards. If they add up to 10, keep them and try again. If they do not add up to 10 turn them back over, but remember where they are as this will help you during your next turn. Whoever has the most cards at the end of the game is the winner. If you can do this easily, you can try the Year 2 game to 20. 

 

Year 2

Play the above game for number bonds to 20 (you will need digit cards 0 – 20).

 

All

If you would like to practise your number bonds using an online game, you can try:

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Select ‘Number Bonds’, then either ‘Make 10’, ‘Make 20’ or if you want even more of a challenge ‘Make 100’.

Year 1 

This week we have been practising adding two one digit numbers. We have used concrete objects and also tried counting on from the greatest number. For example, when completing 5 + 3, we count on three more – 6,7,8 to find the total - 8.

Use this game to practise your addition skills. Ask your grown up for some concrete objects to help you such as some beads, pasta or lego pieces.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/addition/robot-addition

Start with the ‘Up to 10’ questions and then move onto the ‘Up to 15’ and ‘Up to 20’ if you want a challenge!

 

Year 2 

This week we have been practising adding a one digit number to a two digit number. We have used the strategy of counting on from the greatest number. For example, when completing 45 + 3, we count on three more – 46, 47, 48 to find the total - 48.

Use this game to practise your addition skills.  How quickly can you answer the questions? 

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/addition/robot-addition

Complete the ‘Up to 20’ questions.

If you want a challenge, try this fruit splat game. Start on Level 4 and then move onto Level 5.

Autumn Term 2020

Welcome back Class 3! We are so excited to have our lovely new Class 3 children back at school and ready for the new school year. We have had a delightful first week getting to know each other and finding out all about our class' families, interests and talents. 

This term our topic is 'Turrets and Tiaras'.

We will be learning all about castles and stories with a castle setting. We will be reading Robin Hood and a unique version of Rapunzel. Do princesses really need a prince to escape? In Maths we will be focussing on learning our numbers to 100 fluently and developing our understanding of place value. Then we will be focussing on our calculation skills. Class 3 have already shown me some of their wonderful creative skills. In Art we will be practising our sketching and drawing skills. In Science we will be learning how to identify different plants and animals and finding out what they need to grow and be healthy. We are going to use maps to locate the countries in the UK and the surrounding seas. We will also find out about some of the castles in the UK and their locations. 

Keep checking the website for photographs of our work and updates about our learning!

Mrs Smith and Class 3
