Maths Home Learning

No flipped learning this week, but an opportunity to practise further what we have been doing in class. Many of you are using the column method of vertical addition. Others are using other methods alongside this until you get more confident. You have been given 3 sets of questions for you to look at. Choose the section that you want to do and complete them in your learning log. House points to everyone who completes one section.

Feel free to post any questions or comments here.


Fancy more practice? Have a go at this. Can you complete level 6?
