Parent Planning


Good morning! 

I would recommend using PowerPoint for all of the lessons because it has animations and things to click on to reveal answers etc.

The pdf will work but doesn't work with the animations.


If you do not have a printer, please be creative and either draw the activities with your child in their book as they aren't too tricky or try and do one of the other suggested activities that are on the PowerPoint or that I have written down on the plan.


There is always more than one way of doing something, be creative and follow your child’s interests. Please message me if I can help! smiley


Using number families to work out the inverse.

Still image for this video
Once children start becoming more confident with their times tables, they understand how the number family is linked. E.g. If I know 5x3 = 15, I also know 3x5=15. If I know that the biggest number comes first when dividing then I automatically know 15 divided by 3 is 5 and 15 divided by 5 is 3.
Its all about making connections to learning they already actually know! :-)

First game you could play: Matching – find all cards with a matching value.

Second game: lay all the cards out on the table. Pick up a card e.g. 15 ÷3 = 5, can you find a picture to match your number sentence, can you find the inverse to your number sentence?

Third game: Pairs – can children find the matching pair? If they have a good explanation why/or you have a good explanation why, your child lets you keep the pair. If they think you haven’t used mathematical vocabulary. They can steal the cards away from you! 


Maths vocabulary:

Multiply, lots of, multiplication, multiplication facts, equal groups, multiple, repeated addition, times, array, divide, division facts, repeated subtraction, inverse, inverse operation.
