P3M 26.3.20

Hello everyone, I hope you and your families are all well and that you are enjoying the activities on the blog. Remember to spread the tasks over the morning and afternoon- when the blog is posted at 12 noon you are not expected to get everything done in that afternoon, some of the activities can be left for the following morning.

Learning together at home for today:

NUMERACY

Mental Maths

Don’t forget about the times tables. We have been learning the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times tables. Use the links posted on 24.3.20 to help improve your speed of recall.

Buzzburgers

We have been working on our skills using empty number lines (ENLs). Today we are going to use our skills to add 2 digit numbers with regrouping. Have a look at the photograph, it shows two ways of working out the same sum, 29+63.

The first way shows 29 + 1 – the 1 is taken from the 3 ones or units from the number 63. So 29 + 1 + 30 , we then add 6 tens to make 30 and finally 2 ones or units to make 92.

The second way shows 29 + 3( 3 ones or units from the number 63) to make 32 then 6 tens are added to make 92.

I know that some of us are able to do this without using an ENL but  I would like you to have  more practice with ENL and become familiar using the technique.

Please complete the following in your jotter using empty number lines. You will need a ruler. Try to work out the answers in different ways.

  1. 38 + 23
  2. 28 + 38
  3. 35 + 55
  4. 16 + 78
  5. 25 + 36
  6. 57 + 44
  7. 29 + 73
  8. 88 + 34
  9. 44 + 47
  10. 45 +59
  11. 76 + 27
  12. 95 + 28

 

Snozzcumbers

Today we are going to practise sequencing numerals. First you are going to have to make some number cards. Cut up some paper and on each piece of paper write the numbers : 26 27 28 29 30

41 42 43 44 45

56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65

88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96

Keep your cards in their groups.

Mix up the cards 41 – 45.

Put these cards in order starting with the smallest card.

Say each number as you point to it.

Do the same with the other groups of cards.

 

Human Beans

We are continuing to practise recognising the numbers from 1 – 100.

Start by saying the numbers from 29 – 45, 49- 62, 69-94

Now practise saying them backwards 45 – 29, 62- 49, 94- 69

If there is someone at home to help you ask them to use the number square you made yesterday (check it is all correct first!) or use your number square from your pack. Helper – place a small cover over number 32 and ask ‘ What number is under here?’ Remove the cover to see if you are correct. Do the same for a selection of other numbers in the square.

LITERACY

spelling

Choose an activity from the grid that was sent home or think of your own activity to help you learn your words. Dictation tomorrow!

WRITING

Read over your piece of writing from yesterday. Have you put full stops in the correct place? Read it aloud to help you with this- when you have come to the end of something you wanted to say, that is where your full stop should go. Remember straight after a full stop there should be a capital letter. We need capital letters for names of things too. Have you used any adjectives in your writing? Remember an adjective is a describing word and it adds detail to a noun (a person, place or thing).

For example:

I stood on the stage and looked out at the audience, I felt scared but excited too.

I stood on the enormous stage and looked out at the silent audience, I felt scared but excited too.

Try to add a couple of interesting adjectives to your writing. If somebody at home is free to listen, read your piece of writing aloud to them.
