Every Friday we will be having a mental arithmetic lesson. This means we will be answering maths questions, but not using anything to help us. No tens and units, no hundred square, not even any counters… just your brain!
At first you might not get all the questions right, but it is important to practise every week and even at home to improve your mental maths skills. When we first started learning our times tables they are very tricky, but now I know lots of you can do your 2x, Â 5x , 10x Â and even some children know their 3 times tables as well.
Here are some games that you can play to practise your skills.
In Maths we have moved onto word problems. You need to use your reading and maths skills to answer these.
Read the question carefully! Write a number sentence and work out the answer.
Challenge: Can you write your own word problem? Can any anyone work out the answer?
In Geography we have been learning to locate castles. We used co-ordinates to help us find the right place on the map.
You might like to play theÂ Billy Bug GameÂ to practice using co-ordinates.
Challenge: Find out one fact about Skipton Castle.Â
In our maths lessons we have been working on numbers. Last week we looked at place value and partitioning. If you would like to practise your skills, have a go at this game.
