Essential Daily Activities

 

Numeracy 

Times Tables

 

As well as completing the planned Maths activities for your year group each day, you should also practise your times tables for at least twenty minutes every day. This includes all your division facts. You could play the games below, write out some of your tables, say them to a family member, make up a song to help you learn them- whatever works to ensure you can remember them really quickly!

Literacy

Reading

As well as completing the planned Literacy activities for your year group each day, you should also read for at least half an hour every day. This could be a school book, your own books, a comic or a magazine. Make sure you get an adult to hear you read aloud as well as reading independently. Read whatever you enjoy and remember to keep your Reading Record up to date! I will look forward to seeing all the interesting, exciting things you’ve been reading when you return to school. You could also read on the website below. You are able to access it free on any internet-enabled device during school hours. Our Class Code is: rsi2630

Spellings

Keep practising your spellings every day, including writing them in sentences and ensuring you know what they mean. See if you can ask a family member to test you!

You can use this website to revise all KS1 and KS2 Spellings: https://spellingframe.co.uk/

Numeracy Methods

Year 4

 

This week you will be working on correspondence problems. These are problems which use your understanding of multiplication and division to find missing values.

For example:

 

You have 5 bags of marbles. Each bag contains 5 blue marbles and 2 red marbles. How many blue marbles do you have in total?

 

5 bags each with 5 blue marbles, so 5x5=25.

 

A restaurant has 4 different starters, 2 different main courses and 2 different puddings. How many different combinations are possible?

 

4 starters, 2 main courses and 2 puddings so 4x2x2=16 different combinations.

 

You will also be looking at some other problem solving activities linked to the multiplication and division methods we have covered during our topic.

 

Year 5

This week we are continuing with our work on multiplication and division.

We are going to look at different methods of multiplying numbers of up to four digits by a two-digit number.

 

One method we can use for multiplying a two-digit number by another two-digit number is what is called the grid method, which you might remember from Year 3 or 4.

 

In the grid method you break down the calculation (44x32) into four much easier calculations which we can use solving our times tables and our knowledge of multiplying by 10 and 100.

 

30x40= 1,200

30x4= 120

2x40= 80

2x4= 8

 

We can then add our answers for each of these four calculations to give us our total.

 

    1200

+    120                                      So, 44x32= 1,408

        80

          8

___1____

    1408

 

The more formal multiplication we can use for multiplying numbers by a two-digit number is called long multiplication. It uses the same basic method as the short multiplication method we used when multiplying by a one-digit number but it extends it to include multiplying by the tens as well as the units.

 

We lay it out the same to start with. Position the larger number on the top and the smaller number underneath. Make sure that you keep your place value columns lined up!

 

For example for 23x14.

 

   T  U

   2   3

x 1   4

_______

We then start by multiplying each of the digits in the top number by the units of the bottom number. Start by multiplying the units of the top number, then the tens. This will give us the first part of our answer.

 

   T  U

   2   3

x 1   4

__1_____

   9      2          (4x23)

We then multiply each of the digits in the top number by the tens digit of the bottom number. Because this is multiplying by tens, not units, the answer will be ten times larger so we will need to use a zero to hold the place in the units column.

     T  U

     2   3

x   1   4

__1______

     9     2

__________

2   3    0            (10x23)

_________

We can then add together the two totals from multiplying by our units and our tens.

     T  U

     2   3

x   1   4

__1______

     9     2

__________

2   3    0           

_1________

3   2     2

So, 23x14= 322

With larger numbers, you carry out exactly the same steps but your two totals and your final answer will be larger!

I will upload some worksheets you may like to use onto Teams for you to practise throughout the week.

 

Have a brilliant week Dovedale Class!

It’s been lovely seeing lots of you during our live online lessons.

Keep working hard and keep smiling! I can’t wait for when we’re all back in school together.
