Maths Support

Hello all! Here's some new maths activities for the week.

Please remember to look at the previous week if you haven't yet completed them.

Year 1

This week I would like you all to start look at making equal groups and making arrays. This will link nicely to the previous activities on equal groups and times tables.

There is a video explanation and activity sheets on the white rose website

Find Week 2 at the top of the page and look at lessons 4 and 5. I've also attached some extra resources at the bottom of this page

Year 2

This week I would like you to look at 2D and 3D shapes. You should have started looking at this last year in year 1, so this would be a good time to see what you can remember and build on your knowledge.

BBC Bitesize has some excellent online resources for this, including videos and games:

What are 2D shapes?

What are 3D shapes?

What are the properties of 3D shapes?

Here are some ideas for other activities you can do at home:

Shape hunt - Make a tally chart to see how many shapes you can find around your home. Maybe you could do it again the next time you go for a walk!

Poster - Make a poster explaining what 2D or 3D shapes are. Make sure to include key vocabulary such as face, edge, vertices, side, straight and curved

Shape picture - Can you make a picture using only 2D shapes? See the attachments below for some resources

3D model - Can you make a model using 3D shapes in your home? Some things you could make are a house, a tower or a bridge
