First practice your Gem Maths. In the test, you get 3 minutes and nothing to help you but for practice you can spend a bit longer and use number lines or hundred squares if you need to.
Next we are going to practice those numbers between 40 and 50. Your grown up can say a number between 40 and 50 and you need to write it down in numerals. See how many you can do in one minute.
Subtraction - How many left?
This week we are going to focus on subtraction. See if you can tell your grown up what we mean by subtraction and what the symbol that represents it looks like.
Subtractions come in many forms. We will be exploring these over the next few days. Today we will be looking at 'How many left?' type questions.
'How many left?' type questions are basically 'take away' questions where you start off with one amount and a portion of it is removed. You then calculate what is left.
Here is an example:
You can solve these by representing the numbers with Lego bricks or other things around your home. You could also draw a sketch to visually represent the problem, crossing out the ones you 'take away'.
Here are a selection of subtraction problems to solve based on the 'taking away' method. The questions have also been attached as a printable sheet.
Can you make up a couple of your own subtraction (how many left) questions and solve them?
Now try these reasoning problems for an extra challenge.
Send us pictures of your answers to these questions.
Having listened the story, can you look at the images of each of the Three Little Pig's houses and write adjectives to describe them. Don't forget adjectives describe the size, shape, colour and texture of a noun (in this case the houses).
Phonics and Reading
We would like you to click on the videos below and watch the phonics lessons 'i_e' 'Short oo' and Blending with i' from Letters and Sounds. Activities which you can do to apply the sound are in the video and there are also linked underneath.
After, please watch the videos on the phonics resource and support section which practices all your phonics sounds using the flashcards which we use at school. Have a go at saying the sounds along with Miss Smith. Make sure you are saying the pure sounds accurately.
Don't forget to read your book everyday.
