Maths

We use something called a 'Bar Model' in Year 1 and 2 to help us solve all sorts of maths problems and to help make links between mathematical operations. Watch the videos that Mrs Jerome has filmed to help remind you how we've used it before.

 

The good thing about a bar model is that it's really easy to draw so it really doesn't matter if you don't have a printer at home to print off the attached worksheets. Just use the worksheets to guide you. 

 

Make sure you use objects like lego pieces, pasta, buttons or anything else to find laying around at home to help you if you can. If you don't have objects, then you could try drawing pictures/making marks to help you, like in Mrs Jerome's videos. 

 

 

First you could draw a bar model to help you find half of an even number, then maybe you could challenge yourself to see if you can use it find a quarter of a number. 

 

After that maybe you could have go at drawing your own bar model and use it to help you find number bonds (2 numbers that add to make...) to 10.

 

Don't forget to put any work you do in your home learning books so that we can share it when we're back in school. 

To help you remember what halves and quarters are, maybe you could make a sandwich, a pizza or bake a cake at home and cut it into halves and then quarters. Remember a half is 2 equal pieces and a quarter is 4 equal pieces. Our special maths word for fractions is EQUAL. 

What a half and quarter look like

Use the ladybird to help you find half of a number to 10. These are easy to draw if you don't have a printer.

Use the ladybird to help you find half of numbers to 20. These are easy to draw if you don't have a printer.
