Summer Term

Maths - Summer Term

As a school, we follow the Whiterose schemes of learning who have released teaching videos and worksheets to support children's mathematical learning:

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

There is a lesson for each day which includes a video and worksheet. The video is useful as a teach to explain the learning to children. You may want to pause the video at different parts to practise activities. Your child may then want to complete the worksheet or they could practise the learning using practical resources from around the house. Ideas for questions you could ask your child, practical activities and support and extend suggestions for each day have been outline below:

Thursday 30th April - Problem Solving (Length and mass)

Watch the online lesson:

Questions to support learning:
What do the scales tells us?

What is the mass of 4 blocks? How do you know?

How can we work out the mass of 1 block?

What can we learn from the balanced scales?

Are the blocks or spheres heavier? How do you know?

What is the mass of one sphere?

How long is the.....in cm?

What is the length of...... in cm?

Which object is shorter/longer? How do you know?

How much longer/shorter is the?

Practical activity suggestion:

1. Mass problems - Talk through the pictures on the 1st page of the worksheet and discuss how to solve the problems. (See questions to support learning)

2. Find 2 objects from around the house. Ask your child to measure both objects with a ruler and identify their length in cm. Which object is shorter? How much shorter? Subtract the shorter length from the longer length to work this out.

3. Find another 2 objects and ask your child to measure their length in cm. Which object is longer? How much longer? Repeat activity.

Problem Solving and Reasoning extension:

Can your child create their own similar problem for you to solve?

Friday 1st May - Maths Challenge

Week 1 - Week beginning 20th April

Monday 20th April - Making Doubles

Questions to support learning:

Support/Practical activity suggestion:

Using everyday objects or toys, children can practise adding the same amount of an object to double a number. They can then write the number statement to match the calculation they have made. e.g. 3+3

Problem Solving and Reasoning extension:

Tuesday 21st April - Making equal groups (grouping)

Questions to support learning:

Support/Practical activity suggestion:

Place everyday objects/toys into groups of the same number. Can children explain how they have made equal groups?

Problem Solving and Reasoning extension:

Wednesday 22nd April - Making groups (sharing)
