Big Maths Methods for Key Stage 2
I have created some 'Show Me' tutorials to help the children develop their understanding of the Big Maths methods. Each video goes through the steps needed from Clic test level 2 to 5.
Please click on the links to see the tutorials.
Here are some 'Show Me' tutorials to help with work we have covered in class.
WE ALL NEED TO WORK ON OUR TIMES TABLES
Please practise your times tables as the better you get the easier maths will become. We have added some fun websites to help you achieve this goal. Please use them. I like the slingshot game personally! (Multiplication.com)
If you know of any other fun websites please let us know so we can share them with the other children.

*TOP TIP - Even if you have seen the films/television programmes based on some of these books, read the books anyway! They often miss out details such as characters or events. The books are SO much better!
Remember what we have talked about in class this week. It is important to know the meanings of the words you are learning to spell, so that you can use them in your own writing. Your spelling words this week are connective words - we will be looking out for these in your writing!
