It is not long before two fun events in the calendar arrive. Valentine’s Day is on the 14th of February and we have a great selection of maths worksheets, all with a Valentine’s Day theme; so there will be plenty of hearts fluttering!
The worksheets include counting hearts in twos, and some hearty addition and subtraction questions.
For older children we have a Valentine Special on making a total of 100 and, hardest of all, is a set of number sequences which includes negative numbers.
We have also produced an excellent comprehension which looks at the origin of Valentine’s Day as well as a tricky word problem page. These can be found in our Special Occasions English category.
These are freely available to all subscribers and trial members.
Our Pancake Day worksheets can also be found in the Maths Special Occasions category and includes a new worksheet looking at finding the correct order when making pancakes – not as easy as it sounds! Also there are pages on the ingredients needed to make pancakes, which asks some pretty tricky questions involving ratio, so it is probably best suited to Year 6 children.
Pancake Day is usually known as Shrove Tuesday and it is the last day before the period known as Lent in the Christian calendar. It is on the 12th of February this year, just a few days before Valentine’s Day. The idea is that Shrove Tuesday is the last chance to use up foods that you are not allowed during Lent, a time of abstinence and giving things up.
Pancakes are eaten on this day because they contain butter, eggs and fat which are not allowed during Lent.
