Length & Perimeter

Knowledge organiser

Click on the links below for a range of useful resources to support this maths topic:

You can practise this learning at home by:

  • Measuring the length of objects in the home- think about the most appropriate unit of measurement.
  • Measure the length of each side of a room in your house/ your garden and use this to work out the perimeter of the room.
  • Play a game with your family where you have to throw a beanbag and then you need to calculate and compare the distances.
  • Ask your grown up how far a journey is going to take in the car (you can see on a sat nav) and challenge yourself to convert the distance into different units.

Fractions & Decimals

You can practise this learning at home by:

  • Think about fractions when you are eating- when you slice a pizza/ cake/ pie? What fraction have you cut it into it? How much has been eaten/ left?
  • Work out sale and offer prices when you go shopping- if there is 1/3 off how much will the item be? You could compare which item will be cheapest.
  • When you are shopping round up the decimals to the nearest whole number.
  • Make or draw a fraction wall to show equivalent fractions.

Geometry

You can practise this learning at home by:

  • Drawing & building 2D & 3D shapes. Then describe the propterites of the shapes you have created using mathematical language.
  • Looking for shapes around you- can you identify how many edges, vertices, faces, sides?
  • Identifying angles in the home- how many can you find? When a door is open it creates an angle- can you make it acute, obtuse or a right angle?
  • Find lines of symmetry- you could even use a mirror to check.
  • Create a treasure hunt for your family and plot the the co-ordinates on a grid to help them find the treasure!

Number Day 2022

We had so much fun delving into all the number based activities for NSPCC number day. We particularly loved creating and finding patterns with our times tables, and completing our own number escape room- luckily we all made it out, phew!

Multiplication and Division

Knowledge organiser

Click on the links below for a range of useful resources to support this maths topic:

You can practise this learning at home by:

  • Asking a grown up to challenge your mental arithmetic by asking you multiplication & division questions for you to work out quickly.
  • Working out how many arrays you can make using everyday objects e.g. an eggbox, muffin tray, ice-cube tray
  • Sharing items like marbles or some food out between people at home. Work out how many each person will get first. Is it divisible? Will there be any remainders?

Time

Knowledge organiser

Click on the links below for a range of useful resources to support this maths topic:

You can practise this learning at home by:

  • Looking at different clocks to work out what time it is. Ask grown ups to challenge you rather than them telling you what the time is.
  • Using a stopwatch to time members of your family a challenge/ race, then order and compare the durations.
  • Working out what time something will need to come out the oven/ microwave depending on the time an adult put it in.

Addition and Subtraction

Knowledge organiser

Click on the links below for a range of useful resources to support this maths topic:

You can practise this learning at home by:

  • Asking a grown up to challenge your mental arithmetic by asking you addition & subtraction questions for you to work out quickly.
  • Working out how much of something is left once it has been used for baking/ cooking e.g. I use 200g of a 500g bag of flour so 300g is left.
  • Setting up some real life addition & subtraction problems to solve.

Money

Knowledge organiser

Click on the links below for a range of useful resources to support this maths topic:

You can practise this learning at home by:

  • Working out how much things are going to cost, and how much change you will get when you go shopping.
  • Setting up your own pretend stall/ shop and work out the price and change yourself.

Place Value

Knowledge organiser

Click on the links below for a range of useful resources to support this maths topic:

You can practise this learning at home by:

  • Reading the temperature on a thermometer or thermostat to explore decimals and negative numbers.
  • Rolling a dice 4 times or draw 4 playing cards and see how many numbers you can make using the digits.
