Day 1: Complete Summer Week 1 Lesson 3. Remember that when you are using greater than > or less than < symbols, the crocodile likes to eat the larger number. It may help you to use a place value grid in the back of your books to draw out the problems for yourself.


Day 2: Magic Number Squares:

A Magic Number Square is a grid where every row, column and diagonal adds up to 15.  Can you collect items from the garden to make your own natural magic number square? Here are the rules for this activity – Parents, please note, this page also contains the solution


Day 3: Complete Summer Week 1 Lesson 4 Towards the end of the lesson, we look at where we would find decimal numbers in the ‘real world’ Did you think of these when you were considering ‘real life’ decimal numbers last week?


Day 4: Natural sequences

Find natural objects and make a sequence using them.


For instance, mine might be: daisy, daisy, dandelion, stone, daisy, daisy, dandelion, stone.


What would come next in your sequence? What would be the 10th object in your sequence? The 20th? The 100th? How could you work it out?


Extra activities:

  1. Complete questions 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 from the Friday maths challenges from Summer Week 1 If possible, you could work on the rest with your family. 
  2. Using a camera, see how many mathematical photos you can take. Can you explain what you can see? Can you think of mathematical questions for your photographs?
