This week we will be looking at sequences.
Complete the first day of the ‘Fluent in Five’ questions below. Some of these require written methods, others are completed mentally.
Load up this website and answer questions to gain an understanding of sequences and patterns in numbers.
Open the flip ‘sequences’ and work through the first questions. Can you identify the pattern between each number before predicting the next number in the sequence?

What is the largest addition question you can think of? What is the smallest you can make using subtraction?
How did you answer these questions?
Open the flipchart ‘Missing numbers’ and work through the questions available, discussing the difficulties in each one. Obviously there is a number missing so discuss strategies of how to complete the sum.
You will need to understand when to use the inverse in this lesson, discuss the meaning and benefits of using the inverse.

Can you use column addition/subtraction with different parts of the sum missing? Try the sheet below. There is also a ‘Challenger’ sheet available for those in Mr Hodgkins and Mrs Stirling’s Maths set.

Open the following MyMaths link. Work through this and play the games towards the end to gain a decent understanding of place value and ordering numbers.
You will be expected to order numbers from lowest to highest up to 1000. Complete the ‘Ordering to 1000’ activity below. If that was easy, can you complete the other ordering activities below?
