Numeracy

Play +1 / -1 with someone at home. (To play, write +1 and -1 on opposite sides of a piece of paper so that one of these is showing face up. The first player says a number, and then the second player has to say back the number that is either +1 or -1, depending on which side of the paper is showing. After every five or six numbers, flip the paper over.)

If you want more of a challenge, play +2 / -2 or even +10 / -10!

How many can you get right in a row?

Can you play the game faster and faster?

Play an addition game on a computer or tablet (e.g. http://www.arcademics.com/games/alien/alien.html). Start with sums up to 12, and then see if you can go up to 20.

Everyone has a new reading book this week, with a note of pages to be read in time for reading groups in class on Thursday 7th and Tuesday 12th September.

Reading pages out loud is very helpful. Can you pick a page to practise, and then read it out with no mistakes and lots of expression?
