Spellings for the Summer term

Spring Term Maths Homework

 

Since Christmas, we have spent a lot of time working on multiplication and division of 2,5 and 10.

 

If you could help your child to practise their times table facts at home, that would be great.  

 

What you could do:-

 

  • The first step is being able to skip count in 2's 5's and 10's

 

2,4,6,8,10,12

 

5,10,15,20,25

 

10,20,30,40,50

 

If your child can do this easily, perhaps try counting backwards.

 

  • Chant tables in order (the traditional method)

1 two is 2

2 two's are 4

3 two's are 6 etc

 

If your child can do this easily you could try asking them the facts in a random order.

 

E.g. 

What are 3 two's?

4 times 5 is...? etc

 

If your child can do this for all 3 times tables, you could try learning the associated division facts.

 

E.g. 

 

4 tens are 40 so what is 40 divided by 10?

 

3 fives are 15 so what is 15 divided by 5?  etc

 

As well as these things, every child now has a log in for 'Times Table Rock stars' which has been set for 2's, 5's and 10's.  Playing this game (or a similar one) regularly will help your child to learn the facts by heart.

 

In class we have been singing tables songs from You Tube. See the links below if you'd like to use these to practise at home.

We will check the children's times table knowledge on a 1:1 basis and in class.
