If you are following a maths mastery programme we now have a superb range of material which we are sure you will find useful to supplement work done in school or to help at home. The first block of four weeks covers number and place value.
When first entering Year 1 children need to build on the skills and knowledge learned in Early Years to ensure that they are ready to make the next important steps, so we begin with something they should be familiar with: sorting into groups. Whilst we have plenty of examples the best way to do this is practically, sorting counters, fruit etc and asking how the objects have been sorted. The items sorted can be matched: are there enough saucers for the cups?
Children will develop their counting by counting forwards and backwards to and from 10 for which number lines are great. One more than and one less than are introduced as well as simple ordering of small numbers.
We also look at the idea of seeing numbers as positional, using first, second, third etc.
This work on number continues for the first four weeks.
If you are looking for more, don’t forget that we have much, much more in our usual Number and Place Value category.
Year 2 Maths Mastery Support: Autumn Term: Block 1 Number and Place Value
We now have a superb range of material which we are sure you will find useful if you are looking for Year 2 maths mastery ideas to supplement work done in school or to help at home. The first block of three weeks covers number and place value.
Children will be expected to build on their knowledge of number to count, read and write up to 100. Place value charts and bar models are an excellent way to help with this, especially with partitioning numbers.
Number lines are also really useful to help place numbers.
Comparing numbers is an important aspect of this block, along with using language such as bigger than/smaller than and the > and < signs.
Once counting in ones has been firmly established children will be asked to count in fives and tens.
Year 3 Maths Mastery Support: Autumn Term: Block 1 Number and Place Value
We have selected a small number of resources to supplement the work done in school or to help at home for those using a blocked maths mastery programme.
Building on the work done in Year 2 children will understand what 100 is and count in multiples of 100 up to 1000. They should also understand that a 3-digit number is made up of 100s, 10s and 1s and read and write 3-digit numbers. Place value grids and an abacus are great ways to help with this.
Number lines are still really useful, especially when putting numbers in order and estimating.
Children will move on to finding 10 or 100 more or less than a number and they will also compare 3-digit numbers and order them from smallest to largest.
Being able to confidently count in fives will help with counting on and back in fifties.
This work on number continues for the first three weeks.
