Our Maths Mastery support materials are available for the rest of term, for Years 1, 2 and 3. A combination of worksheets and on-screen activities provide superb support for any teachers using a maths mastery approach, as well as a great resource for parents with children following such a programme.
There is just a one week block for Geometry/Shape in Year 1, although this is returned to later in the year.
Children will be introduced to a variety of 3D-shapes including the cube, cuboid, cylinder, pyramid, cone and sphere. They will begin to recognise that a shape can have the same name but be a different size or orientation. Plenty of practical work needed here as children sort and name shapes.
2D shapes are also introduced, including triangles, squares, rectangles and circles.Making patterns using these shapes will include using ordinal numbers to describe the patterns.
Year 1 Mastery Programme: Block 4: Number
We return to Number and Place Value for two further weeks with similar activities to the first 4 weeks, but with larger numbers up to 20. The teen numbers can prove tricky to grasp so plenty of counting up to 20 is needed.
Don’t forget we have some great on-screen activities including using part-whole models and base 10 blocks, which give children unlimited practice working with numbers up to 20.
Year 1 Mastery Programme: Block 5: Consolidation
The final block of the term is just one week on consolidation and what better way to go over what has been covered than by using some fun Christmas themes. Counting stockings and hats, ordering numbers of Christmas puddings and comparing numbers of baubles are just some of the activities on offer. These all consolidate the learning that has taken place this term.
Year 2 Mastery Programme: Money
Working with money is one of the most important aspects of primary maths in Year 2. It can be used to help with counting, addition and subtraction in a really practical way.
As well as worksheets, our on-screen activities provide endless practice with counting and adding money and there are plenty of opportunities for reasoning and problem solving during this fortnight.
Finding change is an excellent way to illustrate subtraction, which can be done by adding on to the smaller amount. Excellent on-screen activities for finding change are also available.
This is a two week block, but we have many more activities in our Money category in Year 2.
Year 2 Mastery Programme: Block 4: Multiplication
The Autumn term is rounded off with two weeks looking at multiplication. To begin with multiplication is explained as repeated addition. The use of arrays can also help children understand multiplication. Once happy with the understanding of what multiplication is, children can move on to the 2 times table: bar modelling can illustrate this table very well.
The 5 times table and 10 times table are also introduced and children should be able to recall and use these facts.
Four on-screen activities have also been added to this topic, providing unlimited practice.
Year 3 Mastery Programme: Multiplication and Division
This is a three week block concentrating on multiplying and dividing by 3, 4 and 8. A thorough understanding of the relationship between multiplication and division is important and bar models can help with each of the times tables. The 8 times table can be shown to be double the 4 times table, which, in turn, can be shown to be double the 2 times table.
For unlimited practice of key skills why not take a look at our on-screen activities? Short and sharp, with instant feedback and rewards, they are ideal for helping children with multiplication and division.
Year 3 Mastery Programme: Block 4: Consolidation
The end of term with Christmas activities drawing near can be a time when the curriculum loses focus, so why not use Christmas as a theme for consolidating what has been learned during the term. Addition, bar modelling and division all feature in our Christmas maths activities. There are more on the main site in the Further Resources category.
