This week in maths, we have been learning to recognise and use the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction – fact families. This is where we write the 2 addition and 2 subtraction facts for a number sentence, e.g.

5 + 3 = 8              8 – 3 = 5

3 + 5 = 8              8 – 5 = 3

There is a free game to use at home to practice this skill.

Choose the + and – option and then you can work through the difficulty levels, starting at ‘Number up to 20’.

This week in maths, we have been re-visiting 2D and 3D shapes and moving on to recognising lines of symmetry. Go for a shape walk in your house or in the local area and ask the children to recognise and name as many 2D and 3D shapes as they can.

Ask questions, such as ‘How many sides does that shape have?’ ‘How many vertices does that shape have?’ ‘Can you see any vertical lines of symmetry?’

This week in maths, we have been learning to recognise coins and notes and to know their values. We have used different coins to make the same amount.

Can you also give your child an amount and ask them to make that amount with different coins?

Challenge your child by saying a 2 digit number, for example, 27. Ask, ‘Is this number in the 5 or 10 times table? Why not? What does the last digit tell us? Repeat with different numbers.
