Mount Pleasant Primary School

Maths Friday

This week, we've been looking at ordering and sequencing numbers and ensuring our number formation is correct.  Reversal of certain numbers is quite common, but the more we practice forming our numbers, the better we'll get!

Click on the link below to play some sequencing and ordering games.

We've been looking at the concept of more and less - particularly at numbers that are one more and one less than any given number up to 20 (and beyond sometimes).  Once we cracked that, we moved onto 2 more and less, and 3 more and less.  Click on the link to play a game where you have to identify the numbers that are more or less to consolidate this week's learning.

1M have been learning all about 2d and 3d shapes with Miss Morgan.  Click on the link below and use all your knowledge to play the Shape Game

This week Year 1 have been telling the time.  Practice listening and matching the times on the clocks.  This will entail telling the time using o clock and half past.

Here's the first Alfie test!   Have a go at applying all those skills you've learnt  this half term to solve the problems.  There are place value, addition, counting and multiplication questions - ask for a little hint if you're not sure which calculation to use.  Good Luck!

We've been using our knowledge of place value to solve money problems this week.  Have a go at the Shark Place Value game to consolidate everything we've learnt about tens and units.

We've been looking at the concept of 'estimation' this week, and how we can improve our visual guesses of larger numbers of objects.  Click on the link below to play the 'Guess It' game and see how well you're estimation powers are.

We've been completing sequences using multiples of 2, 5, and 10 in class.  Take a look at this game to test your knowledge..

Apologies for lack of activity sheets in the reading folders...other issues arose that prevented us from getting to the photcopier. However, if you click on the link, you'll be taken to the Odds and Evens investigation - the outcome of which we'll be discussing on Monday.  We'd like everyone to explore what happens when we add two even numbers , then two odd numbers, and finally one even and one odd number.  It would be great if you could jot down the number sentences on a piece of paper and bring it to school to show and tell what you discovered!

Place Value made sense when we looked at 10p's and 1p's - take a look at this game to have fun with your knowledge!

We've been celebrating Chinese New Year in 1M.  Take a look at this Chinese New Year based ordering and sequencing game

We've been using our addition and subtraction skills to solve word problems.  Take a look at this and see if you can choose the appropriate calculation to solve the puzzle.  There may be a number of different answers to any question.  Don't forget to show all your working out!  Click on the link below

A move away from bonds this weekend!!  We've looked at fractions (halves, quarters, three-quarters) so take a look at this fraction game to see if you can design flags according to the directions given!

Next week, we're going to be looking at capacity using standard units of measure such a millilitres and litres.  Take  a look at this game to familiarise yourselves with these measurements.
