Lesson 1 - Maths 

LC: Can I write multiplication sentences to match pictures.

  • Complete the table together – look at each picture and write the related multiplication and number sentences.
  • Work through some reasoning questions with the children.  For example, 3 X 5 is the same as 5 X 3.  True or false?  Explain your answer.
  • Work through some problem solving questions, for example, Write a sensible story for the calculation 6 x 3 = 18.  Draw a picture to represent this.

 

Children then complete the activity sheets attached. Choose the appropriate star level on the sheet. If children need more support, please use the 'Building Brick Multiplication' sheets attached- use Lego or practical bricks to help support.

LC: Can I understand where Mexico is located in the world and which continent it belongs to?

 

Work through the PowerPoint in the Geography section (if you are not joining the zoom session) - firstly discuss the local area, ensure children understand where they live, then progress to reminding children about the four countries of the UK (from last half term). We will then move from the local to the global: 

 

After that, complete a mini activity to recap last half term's learning about the Continents of the World. 

Mini-Class Activity - Children will need the Seven Continents Mini Task Activity Sheet - we will spend a quick 5 minutes labelling the continents - first see if children can do this independently by pointing an naming the continents. 

 

Next, we will begin to introduce the location of Mexico in N.America and watch a mini video. 

 

Independent Work - Google Maps- Children should use Google Maps on a computer or tablet device to locate Mexico- spend time looking at countries and oceans around Mexico along with it's location to other countries. Children then complete the Mexico Map Skills Activity - locating, colouring the country and adding to the key. As an extension, children could plot other nearby countries and oceans or places of interest to them.
