Working From Home

We will continue to post weekly Maths (including specific websites) and spelling learning below. If you have any queries, please phone or email school (enquiries@marlcliffe.sheffield.sch.uk) and ask for it to be directed to us. We are here to support you.

Maths Home Learning week beginning 23.3.20

This week in Maths, we would have been revisiting 2D shape (geometry), and as part of this we would have been identifying lines of symmetry and making symmetrical patterns using 2D shapes. If you would like to support your child in these activities, have a go at making/painting/drawing a symmetrical picture at home, and label the 2D shapes. Encourage them to identify the sides and vertices of each shape.

Y2s – please learn and remember how to recognise pentagons, hexagons, heptagons, octagons and nonagons.

Maths Home Learning week beginning 13.4.20

This week in Maths, we would have been working on recognising and describing the properties of 3D shapes. If you would like to support your child in these activities, give them practical things to do like finding shapes around the house e.g. how many cuboids can they see? (e.g. chest of drawers, TV, blanket box) Can they find and name 3D shapes in the shopping? (cubes, cuboids, cylinders, cones etc.)

We were also going to revisit the 2, 5 and 10 times tables so please practise these at home. Chant in order first of all (“1 times 2 is 2, 2 times 2 is 4” etc. or just “2,4,6,8” etc.), then ask your child times tables questions out of order (e.g. “What is 6 times 2?”).

Y2s – you need to practise the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables.

 

Maths Home Learning week beginning 20.4.20

This week we woud have recalled number facts up to 20, for example 13 + 6 = 19. Please practise these with your child, and express them in different ways, for example:
13 + 6 = ?
19 = 13 + ?
13 + ? = 19
19 – 13 = ?

Y1s – start with number facts up to 10 first.

Y1 and Y2:

choose 'numbers bonds' and then 'addition with 20'

 

Maths Home Learning week beginning 27.4.20

This week we would have revised subtraction. We can count on from the smaller number to the bigger number for smaller differences, and count back when the difference is much larger. For example, with 15 – 8 it is easiest to put the smallest number (8) in your head and count on until 15, putting a finger up to represent each number counted on. For subtractions with a large gap, for example 27 – 3, it is easier to put the larger number in your head (27) and count back three fingers. Try smaller differences for starters, and then move onto larger differences.

The Y2 children would have been continuing to subtract a 2 digit number from a 2 digit number. To help with this, could you again practise counting on in 10s until they reach just before 100. For example, if you say 24, they would count 34, 44, 54, 64, 74, 84 and 94. This will help with finding the difference between two numbers.

Maths Home Learning week beginning 4.5.20

This week in Maths, we would have revisited multiplication and solving unknown questions using an array. To remind you, an array is a rectangular representation of the calculation i.e. 2 x 5 would be 2 rows of 5 dots. To practise, you could give your child a calculation from a times table that they don’t know (4, 6, 7, 8 or 9 times tables) and ask them to draw an array to solve it. So you may say “I need to plant 3 rows of carrots, with 4 carrots in each row. How many carrots would I have altogether?”. 

Y2s – can you please also practise your 2, 3, 5 and 10 times table at home and make sure you know your division ‘switchers’ as well (e.g. 6 divided by 2 equals 3).

Y1:

choose '2' and '10'

Y2:

choose '2', '5' and '10'

 

Maths Home Learning week beginning 11.5.20

This week in Maths, we would have revisited how to solve division problems practically and record them as number sentences.  If you would like to support your child with this, give them real life situations where division is important e.g. at tea time, sharing potatoes equally between members of the family. Ask how this could be recorded as a number sentence. You should be looking for answers such as “12 shared by 4 is 3” or “12 divided by 4 people equals 3 potatoes each”.

Y2s – can you also say what fraction each person gets?  

Y1:

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

choose 'division facts' then 'division up to 10' then '÷2'

Y2:

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

choose 'division facts' then 'division up to 10' then '÷2' or '÷5' or '÷10'

 

Maths Home Learning week beginning 18.5.20

This week the children would have been applying everything they have learned so far to revision questions (Y1s) and SATs questions (Y2s). To help with this, please practise the following key skills with them:

- counting in 2s, 5s and 10s

- number pairs to 10 and 20

- doubles and halves up to 20

- partitioning numbers into 10s and 1s (e.g. 24 = 2 tens and 4 ones or units)

- recognise and name 2D and 3D shapes
