Maths Number Facts

This is the link to the number facts practice sheets .  Start with bonds within 10, then bonds within 20 before moving on to the 2 x tables , 10 x tables and 5 x tables. In class, the children have 5 minutes to do as many as they can and the idea is that they improve each time they practise. When they score 40 consistently they move on to the next sheet.  Your child will be able to show you which sheet they are working on, however if they are not sure please ask.  Thank you.

Five or ten minutes spent practising number facts is really effective and helps make doing tasks with larger numbers so much easier. There are lots of apps and websites with games and sheets to practise number facts.  Gordon's numbers website has lots of fun games.

                          This is the link to the Mathplayground site.  Remember Grade 1 equates to our Year 2.

Click this link for Times Tables Rockstars- Year 3 practise number facts for a few minutes, a few times a week.


Maths information will be posted soon.
