Please look at the 'Activity Ideas' and 'website links' tabs for some additional things to do with your children, this week.

See additional resources attached below.

We would like you to complete the maths challenge by Friday 22nd May and put up on Tapestry for us to see!

Your Week 5 challenge: A maths game! This game is called the Adding More game.

You will need a dice and some building blocks/lego bricks/jenga blocks  (you may also want a pen and paper to record your working out)

Roll the dice to determine how many blocks high to build your tower eg. 4

Roll the dice again to determine how many more blocks to add to your tower eg. 2 How many blocks high will this make your tower now? 

Can you write this as a number sentence 4 + 2 = 6

Can you keep going? Roll the dice again eg. 3 and add this number of blocks to your tower. Count them all up, how many do you have now? Eg. 6 + 3 = 9

You could play this game with another person and have a race to see who can build the tallest tower.

For an extra challenge you could roll two dice at the same time so that you are working with bigger numbers.
