Mental Maths

Mental Maths

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,  5x , 10x  and even some children know their 3 times tables as well.

Here are some games that you can play to practise your skills.

Minibeast Adventure!

Recently we have been enjoying episodes of Minibeast Adventures with Jess. I know you all love singing along with song, so here is the link for you to watch it at home!

Click here for the song.

There is a game to play too… you need to get out and about finding minibeasts and use this game to tick them off when you find them.

Challenge: What is your favourite minibeast we have learned about so far? Why is it your favourite?

Growing plants

Growing plants

Do you know how to plant a seed? We have been writing instructions this week and planting seeds in class. 2CL planted sunflowers, 2TM planted cress and 2SG planted peas. Over the next few weeks we will be watching them grow and learning how to take care of plants.

You could have a go at this Let Me Grow game and help the plants get water to grow strong.
