 Mathematics 

KS2 Maths Workout – pages 16 & 17 – Multiplying and Dividing

This requires the children to use and apply their knowledge of multiplication and division they have been practicing this week.

Page 16 – 1. The children should use their times table knowledge to solve the questions. 2. The children should use grid method to solve the questions, which they have practiced during their Maths learning this week. This involves them partitioning the numbers (30 x 5 then 1 x 5).

Page 171. Like on previous homework tasks, the children need to complete the division grid to practice their 4 and 8 times tables. They should start with the horizontal numbers and divide them by the vertical numbers. 2. The children could use the bus stop method to solve these problems, which they have practiced in class on Thursday.

Times Tables - Please encourage your child to use Sumdog at home. The children are practicing applying their multiplication skills across different elements of Mathematics. In order to secure your child’s confidence in their times tables, this game is very useful: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button. It can be played on a computer or tablet (you don’t need to download the app), and allows the children to select the tables they want to practice.

Thank you for your continued support.
