Please note that all Classroom Secrets activities have 3 levels of challenge;
D = Developing
E = Expected
GD = Greater Depth
Choose the level of challenge you feel is the most appropriate for you.
Each level has 2 activities (look in the bottom right hand corner);
VF = Varied Fluency
PS = Problem Solving
R = Reasoning
Please try the 'Add Two 4 digit numbers 2' sheet. In the top box it will say '1a. Match the addition calculation to the correct answer.' Remember to look at the letter in the star to choose D, E or GD level of challenge. The E and GD sheets for the same activity can be found slightly further into the pack.
Day 1 additional work
Below, I have prepared some additional work if you need it. Handouts 1 and 2 would need to be printed or displayed on a computer.
1) Number fact for today: 8 x 5 =40
a) Write 8 x 5 = 40 out as many times as you can in 1 minute (even better if you can do this at the end of the day as well!)
b) Write out rhymes and draw pictures to help you remember 8 x 5 = 40 Example: Plate x knives = naughty.
c) Find 5 ways to complete this: 8 x 5 = _____ + _____
2) Code cracking with times tables and mental maths :
Code cracking proved to be quite popular in class. Each day this week, I will post a code cracking activity on here to focus on the 8 x table. When we do this in class, you get to see a picture when you solve it. This is on handout 2. On handout 1 there is also a mental maths question. Again, you will get one of these each day. Look on handout 2 for further examples of how to answer the mental maths question.
From your learning pack: please do the second sheet for 'Add two 4 digit numbers'.
Number fact of the day: 4 x 8 = 32.
Like yesterday, practise this by writing it out as many times as you can in one minute, then drawing an interesting picture or an interesting rhyme to go with it. Today, try to write some word problems for 4 x 8 = 32.
Example: There were 4 bags and each had 8 gold coins in. How many gold coins were there altogether? 32.
In your learning pack: try the 'round to the nearest 1000' worksheet.
Number fact of the day: 3 x 8 = 24.
Again, practise this by writing it out as many times as you can in one minute, then drawing an interesting picture or an interesting rhyme to go with it. Today, can you draw an array to represent this? Draw three rows of eight dots to show 3 x 8 = 24. Count up the dots to check if it really does make 24.
In your learning packs: please try the 'Maths Key Skills, Stage 4 : Skill Check 2'
Number fact of the day: 2 x 8 = 16.
Practise this by writing it out as many times as you can in one minute and writing funny rhymes for it (Eg: 'shoe x plate = twix green').
Next, can you write out the whole of the 8 x table? Make a note of the ones you weren't so sure of so you can practise those a bit more!
