Maths home learning: Always, sometimes or never…

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the fireworks – I have heard lots of lovely stories of the children’s weekends.

My maths homework has been uploaded and there is also a separate activity to take part in called ‘Always, sometimes, never’. This is a mastery activity where children have to prove their answers by showing multiple workings outs. (You should find this activity on your my maths accounts, but it is below too just in case).

Year 3:

When you add 7 to a number ending in 8 your answer ends with 5. Explain your answer. For example, 18 + 7 = 28 + 7 =

Year 4:

Choose the following answers ‘Always, Sometimes, Never’ and explain your answers for the following statements:

  • 2 odd numbers add up to make an even number.
  • 3 odd numbers add up to make an even number.
  • Adding 8 to a number ending in2 makes a multiple of 10.

This homework is due in by the 3rd December.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.

Miss Jenkins, Miss Rushen and Mr Lines.
