'With Jesus, we learn as a joyful family and flourish to be the best that we can be'



Mental Maths Monday!

  1. Count in 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards from different starting points.
  2. Say our odd and even number rhymes. "0, 2, 4, 6, 8, even numbers -  they are great!" "1, 3, 5, 7, 9 - I like odd numbers all the time!" Now sort these numbers into 2 groups - odd and even: 27   31   46   67   90   92   109   123   130   147   158   199   202   290   313   500   
  3. Look at these three numbers and use them to create one multiplication calculation and one division calculation: 30    3    10. Now look at these three numbers and use them to create one addition calculation and one subtraction calculation: 35    57    22     
  4. Have a go at 'Number of the Week', just like we did a few weeks ago and like we do at school. You can write on the sheet or write the number in your book in a circle and write the facts around it (completing a spider diagram).
  5. Choose another number and see how many facts you can think of. Is it even? Is it odd? Which 10 does it round to? What is it a multiple of? Etc. 

19.5.20 and 20.5.20

Complete half of the arithmetic paper each day (see below). Stop after question 12 on Tuesday and complete the rest on Wednesday. Remember to show your working out. You can draw Base 10 (lines to represent tens and dots to represent units) or number lines to add and subtract the tens and ones like we do at school.


21.5.20 and 22.5.20

Complete half of the reasoning below below each day, starting at question 6. Try questions 6 to 18 on Thursday and questions 19 to 31 on Friday. You don't need to print the papers off - read from the screen and write the question numbers and answers in your book. You could even talk about some of the answers with an adult at home if you don't have a printer. 

Answers for both papers:

See page 9 for the arithmetic paper answers.
