Maths homework: Hand in Wednesday 20th Jan
1)Write out doubles and halves up to 20. (e.g. double 1 = 1, double 2 = 4…)
2)Play on Sumdog maths games for at least 20 minutes.
This is an absolutely fantastic resource to help your child progress in maths. It works out your child’s current ability and asks appropriately difficult questions to help them improve and master their skills.
I am able to track each child’s progress online and also see how much time (and how many questions) each child answers over a set period.
You can visit the website (just search ‘Sumdog’ and log in), or download the free app.
The children all have individual usernames and passwords, which they have brought home on a small card (please keep a record somewhere safe for them).
If you do have access to the internet at home, it would be extremely beneficial if you could allow your child to use this app/website. It really will improve their maths!
Practising doubling and halving
Children must know their doubles and halves up to 20.
Here is a fantastic game to practise with:
Ideally, the children should know these number facts so well that they can instantly recall them and don’t need to stop and work them out.
But if they do need to work them out, they should use the partitioning method.
Any questions, pop in and ask. :)
Children - please comment on the blog about your experience so far on Sumdog. What skills have you been working on? Which games would you recommend?
