  • Times tables Bingo! This is best played with at least two people. Make simple bingo cards with multiples of, for example, nine on them. Create 12 cards with numbers from 1 – 12 on each of them.  Then to call out the numbers, turn a card over and multiply it by the number times table you are focusing on! For example, “nine nines”, and whoever has 81 dabs it. The person who gets a full house is the caller on the next round.
  • You can also play times table games - this is a useful website for games, not on the computer. https://www.theschoolrun.com/top-times-tables-games

Four Operations

  • We are going to be revisiting calculating using addition, subtraction, multiplication (short and long) and division (short and long). Work out the answers to the following questions:

            

Use the help sheets to refresh your memory if you’re finding it tricky:

      Addition help sheet     Subtraction help sheet     Long division with decimal remainder

                       Long division help sheet                     Long multiplication help sheet

  • Once you have completed the calculations above, randomly select numbers (you can use a dice or number cards) and the operations to continue practising these calculations.
  • Think about board games that you love to play. Use these for inspiration to design a board game to practise your four operation calculations (can be on paper or using technology).  Generate a mixture of column addition and subtraction questions and short and long multiplication and division questions to use as the ‘steps’ in the board game.  For example, you might want to alternative the four operations or start easy and then gradually make them trickier as the game goes on.  Don’t forget to include bonus areas or items that mean you have to start at the beginning.  Get creative and we’d love to see them!

Times tables

  • Focus on 2 sets of tables that you find tricky and create a snakes and ladders inspired game to practise them. Draw a grid and write a multiplication on each square.  When you reach that square (by rolling dice), you must answer the sum correctly.  If you do, you can have another roll of the dice, if not the person you are playing with gets a go.  Watch out for the snakes!

                                         

 

Dividing fractions by whole numbers – click here to remind yourself how to do this.

  • 1/3 ÷ 4 = ? Method: Leave the numerator the same and multiply the denominator by the whole number 3x4=12.  So, the answer is 1/12.
  • Did you know that a key strategy which helped us to win the Second World War was the ability to crack the German codes and understand their plans?  You’re going to apply your dividing fractions by whole numbers knowledge to crack the code that we have left for you.  Work out the answers to the questions (please do not simplify your answers) and find your answer in the table.  Record the letters until the message is revealed.  Maybe you can write a message back to us using the same code template!

Times tables 

Focus on 2 sets of tables that you find tricky and create multiplication wheels (see below) for them. Stick them up in your room and learn both the multiplication and division facts. You can also play times table games - this is a useful website for games, not on the computer. https://www.theschoolrun.com/top-times-tables-games

Multiplying fractions by whole numbers

¼ x 12 =? Method: ¼ x 12/1 = 12/4. This can be simplified to 3.

When multiplying fractions by whole numbers, is the answer smaller or bigger than the whole number you multiplied with? Explain how you know this. Use diagrams to support your explanation.

Create your own ‘multiplying fractions by whole numbers loop cards’. To do this, write the question on one card, (e.g. 5 x 1/3 =?) and on a different card, write the answer on it – you can choose whether the answer is an improper fraction or mixed number fraction (5/3 or 1 and 2/3). Match these together and then answer the next question on the loop card and repeat, for example:

Times table numbers:

· With permission from an adult at home, find different household objects and convert their measurements (e.g. ml to l).  If they haven’t got a measurement on them, for example, loose carrots, weigh them and then convert from grams to kg.

· Calculate the perimeter and area of your bedroom and the furniture within.  Then, design your own bedroom and furniture that you would have in it, draw and record the perimeter and area of the objects.
