This week's maths


Odds and evens and 2s, 5s and 10s. 


This week we have focussed on odd and even numbers. How do we know if our numbers are in the 2s, 5s or 10s family...(2s numbers end in 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 5s numbers end in 5 or 0, tens end in 0). Can we count in 2s and 5s and 10s. Do we know that when we are counting in 2s, 5s and 10s we are adding 10 each time? 


This - the hundred square splat - is my all-time favourite resource to support children with multiples, counting or adding ten to any number (go down or up the columns by one square!), subtracting and the whole kit and caboodle. 


Why not work with your child to look at patterns created by the 2s, 5s and 10s and see if they can jump down or up the columns to add or subtract 10.

This week's star writer is Edie.


Well done Edie for some super sentences all about animals living in hot habitats. What we don't know about the Bearded Dragon, really isn't worth knowing!
