Games to support maths
Here are some games we like to use in school to support learning in maths. We hope your child can have fun playing them at home too J
General number bond games for differing abilities:
This game provides quick fire questions on number bonds and covers doubling, halving, multiplication and division too. It is a timed activity so the children often enjoy trying to beat the clock! (Tablet friendly)
*The following games are not tablet friendly so a laptop or computer would be required*
This game allows you to work on number bonds to 5, 10 or 100.
A super interactive game which allows you to work on your number bonds to 10, 20 or 100 (just click the pairs activity for your desired level!). If looking for doubling, halving, multiplication or division activities, this fits the bill too.
Can you make the sums balance? Choose from addition bonds within 10 or addition bonds within 20.
A fun game where children can repair the slide by choosing 2 pieces which total 20. This game progresses on to dealing with number bonds to 100.
Games which will specifically help develop number bonds to 10:
Save the whale by finding the pipe showing the correct number bond.
Find a pair of aliens which would total 10 then watch the flying saucer soar away!
Games which will specifically help develop number bonds to 20:
Complete the sum which totals 20 each time then watch the Egyptian mummy have a boogie!
http://www.ictgames.com/funkymum.html is another version of the above game and gives simple 1 digit add 1 digit sums where the answer totals no more than 20.
The children have heard and discussed 3 wonderful poems in Scots – Nessie by J.K. Annand, Doctor by J.K. Annand and The Sair Finger by Walter Wingate. They have chosen one of these poems to learn for homework in the week ahead. We hope to have some lovely recitals in class next Monday … please find the links below!
We have also been learning the song ‘Thae Banes, Thae Banes’ which we are looking forward to performing during our Burns assembly … happy learning!

Happy New Year to you all!
Everyone seems to be happy to be back this week. I’m happy the snow is staying away so far.
We’ve started the term by looking at some Julia Donaldson books in Scots. We listened to The Gruffalo in Scots on YouTube:Find it here
In Maths we’re adding within 100 and then 1000 and found this nice activity on the Top Marks website which has lots of options: Click here to have a look
Scottish poems will be sent home for homework on Monday 16th January so keep an eye out in bags.
