# Maths

Overview of the week:

Due to it being the last week of term, we are going to explore lots of fun maths activities that apply learning from the whole of year 2.

To consolidate our area of learning we are going to play a game of ‘Dice addition’. All children are familiar with this game from this year.

Roll your dice and add their values together, when cover the number of the total.

Can you beat the rest of your family?

Activity 2- Magic Squares

Magic squares are a puzzle that require our knowledge of basic addition. Each row, column and diagonal line must add up to a given total and the numbers can only be used one.

Activity 3- Multiplication Mosaic

By recalling your multiplication facts for year 2, have a go if you can discover the emoji hidden in the mosaic.

Activity 4- Myself in numbers

Today we are going to give an overview to ourselves using numbers 1-10.

For example:

One is the number of pets Miss Sharman has.

Two is the number of brothers that Miss Sharman has.

Three is the number of years Miss Sharman has taught in year 2.

Have a go at completing one of these for yourself all the way up to 10.

If you email them to your class teacher they can pass them on for next year.
