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: 39   45   58   77   80   96   105   113   124   142   167   191   208   270   311   506
3. Look at these three numbers and use them to create one multiplication calculation and one division calculation: 50    10    5. Now look at these three numbers and use them to create one addition calculation and one subtraction calculation: 25    42    17
4. Have a go at 'Number of the Week', just 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.

28.4.20: Complete up to question 12 of the arithmetic paper below. Copy and complete the calculations in your book.

29.4.20: Complete the rest of the arithmetic paper.

Top Tips: Remember to complete this paper without using a number line or hundred square. You can draw your own number lines though, just like we have done at school or you can draw Base 10 if it helps.

For fractions of amounts, use your counting in 2s, 3s, and 4s. Remember, if it asks for something like two thirds of an amount, find one third then multiply by 2.

Remember, sometimes they try to trick us by arranging the calculation in a different way. For example, 13 + 7 = 20   or   20 = 13 + 7. The answer is the same (it needs to balance, = means the same as).

Sometimes, you can use the inverse relationship. For example, a missing number addition could be completed as a subtraction.

30.4.20

1. Copy and complete your 2 x table in your book. For example, 0 x 2 = 0,  1 x 2 = 2,  2 x 2 =
2. Go onto 'Hit the Button' and select 'Doubles': https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
