Number lines- addition
As part our work on the number system we have been learning to add in jumps of tens and units. Two of the written methods that we have been using and will be using in future are the hundred square, which is available on this page, and the number line. These are methods that should be familiar to the children if they were at Dulwich Shanghai during Year One. Below are some websites that you might find interesting and useful:

A plastic folder was given to every child yesterday for homework to be stored in. This folder should be returned to school every Friday with the completed homework in. On the following Monday, the children will take the folder home with the new homework and the previous Friday's homework, which will be marked. If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below you can find a hundred square to download and use at home. The square is an extremely useful tool when teaching children to add, subtract, multiply and divide. We will be using this square throughout the year to also help the children understand patterns in numbers, especially when they're learning about place value.
Hopefully you will find this useful.
This week we are continuing to develop our knowledge of the number system. We are finding doubles by playing games such as doubles ladders, archery doubles and quiz, quiz, trade. To help us learn how to double larger numbers accurately we have been using our knowledge of partitioning.
On Wednesday and Thursday, we will be learning the names and properties of 2D shapes. The ones we will be covering are: circles, triangles, rectangles, squares, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons and octagon. Shapes such as the trapezium, rhombus as well as the different varieties of triangles will be discussed but will not be the focus.
If you want to support your child's development of mental maths then here is a website that you might find to be quite useful. The games that are available are based on the Renewed Framework for Mathematics which is being used in the United Kingdom at the moment.
Welcome to 2B's maths page. Last week the children were working on partitioning numbers using their knowledge of place value. For example 35= 3 tens and 5 units.
This week we are moving on to solving simple problems using our knowledge of number facts.
Have a go at this example:
I am thinking of a number,
I add 7,
I end up with 15,
What number did I start with?
Need some help?
An easy way of working out the answer is to start with the final number and work backwards. With this example I would start with 15 and subtract 7. I am subtracting because it is the opposite to adding. The answer I get is 8. Now, to check that this is correct, I start with the possible number, 8, then add 7. The answer I get is 15, just like in the problem!
For homework this week you have been asked to write three of your own 'Guess my Number' challenges for your friends to solve next week. Write on the sheet and it hand it in on Friday to the maths set teacher.
Welcome to our maths page! This is where I will update you on the work we are covering in class each week. There will be a selection of website links available to support you with homework. Each week I will post a selection of photographs so you can see how hard the children have been working! Enjoy!
