Spring Term

Find below a selection of activities for each subject. There is a range of written, creative and ICT based tasks to choose from.

 

Maths

  • In preparation for our unit on money, please give your child a range of money and ask them to add the total (this should involve notes and coins).  Give them items they could buy and ask them how much change they would receive if they were at the shop.
  • Continue to support your child telling the time and converting between digital time and analogue.  Ask what the time is now on an analogue clock and how that would look on a digital clock and vice versa.
  • Continue to practice timetables every day, asking your child to recite the number sentences for 2’s, 5’s, 10’s, 3’s, 4’s and 8’s.  They could write this down or do it verbally.  The children could also practice these on TTRS.
