Spring term 2 - Mother Nature
Welcome back to remote learning. We hope you all had a fantastic and fun week and are ready for our next topic. This half term our topic is Mother Nature. We will be doing lots of interesting lessons and learning lots of new facts.
No more Power Maths this week - have a go at these fun activities for the rest of the week.
EXTRA HELP VIDEO FOR Y1 SUBTRACTION.
For all those of you having difficulties with this week’s maths in Y1, here is another video which might help to explain better than Mrs K did! This unit of work is about becoming ‘more efficient’ in calculating – that means being able to work things out quickly ‘in your head’ and using what you already know. This video explains how to subtract in a ‘faster’ and more efficient way if counting back in ones takes too long AND you already ‘just know’ your number bonds to 10. I hope it helps! There is an optional worksheet to accompany the video underneath the video link.
Please note: Please don’t worry about this – we will revisit all these ideas when we are all back at school – meanwhile, play ‘numbots’ every day to really get to know your number bonds. It will help you LOTS!
This week we are using our new Power Maths book 1B. We begin on Monday with lesson 1 on page 6. It may help to watch the first video posted below if you are trying to support your children with this unit of work.
