Maths

You can continue to practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to 100 and counting forwards and backwards from any given number. Number bonds and related facts are also important skills to keep practising.

The children have access to Mathletics using their usual login. Please be in touch if you need this information again.

Another great resource for quick recall of addition facts is Hit the Button which is available free here: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button or https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10 for daily mental maths practise.

White Rose Maths will take you to a series of brand new maths lessons perfectly linked to our learning in school.  Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.  This website will be updated at various points, so keep checking back to see whether new lessons have been added.

There are also some downloadable maths activities underneath.

Phonics

You can access phonics and spelling games through Phonics Play which is currently free.
