Maths

This term we are teaching multiplication and division as well as fractions. It is essential that your child is able to count, read and write their numbers to 100 in addition to spelling number words correctly.  They need to use the inverse for all calculation facts such as knowing that:

2 x 5 = 10        and      4 + 6 = 10        40 + 60 = 100,

5 x 2 = 10                     6 + 4 = 10        60 +40 = 100,

10 ÷ 2 = 5                     10 - 4 = 6        100 - 40 = 60 

10 ÷ 5 = 2                     10 - 6 = 4        100 - 60 = 40.

Please can they continue to practice quick recall for number bonds to 10, 20 and then 100. Some good websites are www.topmarks.co.uk  where they can play Hit the Button or Daily 10 to improve their basic number skills and BBC super movers as well as many others. 

We are also using the Timestables Rockstars to support their learning of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.  When they have mastered these tables, they need to be able to count in 3s, so they couldn begin to learn the 3 times table. 

Your child will be occasionally bringing back their times tables tests so that you are aware of their progress.  Please speak to your teacher if you need further information on this or any maths learning.
