Dear WIllow Class,
I hope that you have had a lovely half term break. I have been enjoying the sunshine and being in my garden. I have been planting all sorts of plants and seeds and watching them grow.
Today we will be looking at our subtracting skills, what a sentence is, and I've found a fun activity for you to send a hug in the post to someone! I hope that you have a super day.
Love from Mrs Knight xxx
Today we are going to have a look at different types of sentences.
Today we are going to practice our subtracting skills. Have a go at one or all of these Maths activities below. Don’t worry if you don’t get through all of them. Why don’t you have a look and choose which sorts of questions might be suitable for you to try today.
1. Numberline subtraction under 20 –
As a warmup use the numberline to help check whether you have subtracted correctly to work out your answer.
2. Under 20 challenge –
Choose a number under 20. Give yourself 1 minute on a timer. How many subtraction number sentences can you write with the answer being your chosen number using numbers under 20? How can you make sure you’ve got all of them? Try and be systematic in your answers, like this:
I chose the number 4
4 can be made in all of these way 20 – 16, 19 – 15, 18 – 14 etc.
Why don’t you repeat this several times with different numbers to challenge yourself?
3. Subtraction of 1 digit from 2 digits –
Can you have a go at filling in the sheet with your answers. Remember that you can draw pictures of base 10 (tens and ones) and take them away or a numberline to help you when you’re subtracting.
4. Card game subtraction - race to 0
If you have a pack of cards at home here is a fun way you can use them to help your subtraction skills. You could even make your own cards if you don’t have a pack.
Maths Challenge: Can you solve the Whiterose problem of the day?
Mail a hug!
We are all missing someone at the moment. Why don’t you mail them a hug? This could either be sent through the post or popped through someone’s letter box or even given to someone in your home who might need a little something to make them smile today. It’s a simple activity, but it can really brighten someone’s day. You could even write them a letter to go along with it.
What you will need: a long piece of paper (or a few bits of paper stuck together in a long strip), a pencil, colouring equipment/things to decorate your hug with.
